The USDA Food Pyramid needs to be

turned on its end

Thanks Barton Publishing


Do you know that diabetes is now a pandemic problem in
America? It used to just be an epidemic, but now during the
last 40 years diabetes has gotten much worse than it ever
was. An epidemic is when a disease has taken over a city or
a specific area. A pandemic is when there is an epidemic of
epidemics. In other words, an onset of diabetes has
infiltrated every American community.

Both new and old science has been stating that Type 2
diabetes is curable for years now. But, apparently most
people think that means taking medications for the rest of
their lives. Meanwhile, diabetes just keeps spreading. It
is not a transmittable disease. However, anyone and
everyone can get it if they want to. All they have to do is
take on America's favorite Diabetes Diet.

You have heard of the South Beach diet, the Mediterranean
diet. Well, now there is The American Diabetes Diet.
That's right, a proven, time-tested diet that guarantees
you will get diabetes too.

I am here to tell you this proclaimed Diabetes Diet
isn't so special after all. In fact, I hate to be the
whistle blower but it is exactly the same as The Heart
Disease Diet and The American Cancer Diet too.

I don't expect to stifle any book sales here because
there aren't any. But, in spite of this, The Diabetes
Diet has barnstormed American dinner tables
and eating habits.

It seems everyone is doing it these days and the climbing
diabetes rates prove it.

The only published literature I found that might be able to
take some credit for this killer fad is this thing called
The Food Pyramid. To my shock, it was not published by
anyone in particular; the US Government published it.

The US Department of Agriculture seems to be responsible
for establishing the Standard American Diet (SAD). This is
sad - very sad indeed - because most people actually expect
the government to know what they are talking about. I
believe this assumption has led us head first into our
current pandemic situation.

With further research it didn't take long to discover
that this so called USDA Food Pyramid, which is the premise
of the infamous Diabetes Diet, is not based on real science
at all. In fact, it looks to me as it is a purely
economically driven dietary model and has nothing to do
with promoting health and preventing diseases.

Taking a closer look . . . let's start at the top of the

The USDA Food Pyramid is suggesting we eat less of the
foods at the top and more of the foods at the bottom,
representing the base or foundation of the diet. At the top
we find fats, oils and sweets. First of all I wouldn't
even place "sweets" in here as a food. Rather than
suggesting eating sweets sparingly, I would have simply
omitted them altogether as a non-food, non-nutrient.
Further, I have found ample evidence that many plant based
oils and fats are "essential" to a balanced healthy
metabolism, i.e., flax, hemp, grape seed, sesame, olive,
and coconut.

In fact, a healthy heart is a muscle that is ideally
surrounded by healthy fats that it uses for fuel. Truth is
fat is the primary fuel used for energy throughout the
body, whereas carbohydrates are secondary.

Clearly the government's model fails to identify the
difference between
healthy plant fats from unhealthy animal fats.

That is a big oversight and we are only at the apex of the
food pyramid.

Going down to the next level we see a recommendation of 2-3
servings of dairy products. At this same level just below
the apex it suggests 2-3 servings of meat, poultry, fish
and eggs, dried beans and the nut group of foods. The
problem with this is dairy is loaded with casein, an animal
protein that has been proven to trigger diseases like
diabetes. The same has been verified for all animal protein
as well.

The same anti-diabetogenic diet that prevents diabetes can
also cure it. So seeing how we are dealing with a diabetic
pandemic here, I would place these animal protein
recommendations up into the apex with bad fats and sweets.

I am not sure why the beans are recommended as dried, but I
would emphasize the importance of "sprouting" dried
beans to reduce phytic acids. Phytic acid blocks minerals
from being absorbed in your body. Plus, sprouting your
beans generates a nutritional jackpot of minerals and
vitamins. As far as nuts go, I would list the best nuts by
nutritional levels and healthiest good fat content, cashews
being the least nutritious of all.

Below this level I see 3-5 servings of the vegetable group
and 1-4 servings of the fruit group at the same level.
Below that, at the very base of The Food Pyramid, we see it
recommends 6-11 servings of bread, cereal, and the rice and
pasta group.

Based on all the comprehensive reports that leading doctors
and scientists have compiled and the evidence their
conclusions suggest, I would switch these two levels

A diet of raw vegetables and fruits has been proven to
normalize blood sugar levels for diabetic Type 2 and Type 1
in as little as 4 days. Thus, I would make fruits and
vegetables the basic foundation of my own health and
wellness pyramid. Personally, that is exactly what I
have done to reverse my pre-diabetes.

This would move the grain section above the fruit and
vegetables (Remember, the "higher up" the pyramid
"the less" it is recommended.) I would also emphasize
the importance of eating unrefined whole grain breads,
pastas and rice. Even better, if you really want to make
the best of a diet, choose to eat only sprouted breads and
sprouted grain cereals.

One more thing I would throw into the apex"to be eaten
sparingly", is all refined white sugar, salt and flours.
This would give it a tiny white cap at the top.
