Dietary Guidelines from the USDA: Disastrous dietary advice

Every five years, the United States Department of Agriculture issues updated guidelines for Americans; however, scratch the surface and these guidelines reveal the same ole’, same ole’ disastrous dietary advice—low-fat, high-fiber, high-carb, low-salt, lean-meat, skim-milk diets. In other words, an unsatisfying, nutrient-deficient puritanical diet, that is bound to lead to cravings and indulgence in pornographic processed foods. The USDA dietary advice—imposed on innocent children at the age of two.

WAPF advocates a diet that is neither puritanical nor pornographic, but one based on delicious, satisfying whole foods including fatty meats, eggs, cream, whole milk, butter, organ meats (delicious as pate), seafood, broth-based sauces, unrefined salt, sourdough bread, lacto-fermented foods and the occasional dessert made with natural sweeteners. This diet calls for wise choices, but no renunciation.
