Podcast Episode #225: The Food Pyramid and Why You Shouldn’t Follow It

In this episode, you’re going to learn about the origin of the food pyramid, and why you’d be eating a poor diet if you followed the USDA’s various versions of it through the years.  You’re also going to learn how it came to be this way despite vehement objections from the nutritionists tasked with creating the original (much more healthy) version of it that was ultimately, as the lead nutritionist said, “sold to the highest bidder.” [TRANSCRIPT]

As referenced in the episode, you can find Harvard’s version of the food pyramid here, the original USDA Food Pyramid here, and you can find all of Michael Matthews phenomenal books (Thinner, Leaner, Stronger, The Shredded Chef, etc.) here (and no, we are in no way affiliated with Michael Matthews, nor have we ever contacted him, and he also did not pay us anything for this mention of his works.) 😉
