Help Change the Dietary Guidelines

myplateFamiliar with this image? Most of us have seen some version of this nutritional tool developed by the USDA that offers nutritional recommendations to help us choose the right foods and the right amounts of those foods. The Food Guide has changed a lot over time, with the most current being called MyPlate. Although there has been improvement in the development over the years to healthier recommendations, there is still a long way to go.

For many of us, this raises a number of questions, and to answer these – plus celebrate the launch of Eat Fat, Get Thin – Dr. Hyman has created an excellent Q&A video that he is giving to folks for free. Continue reading “Dr. Hyman’s New Book: “Eat Fat, Get Thin””
