  1. Got to this through paleozonenutrition and love it. Have shared with others, credit to you. Great graphic, thanks! 🙂

  2. Excellent point!

    One aspect of all this that I still find troubling is that even the new food plate does NOT match up with the money spent in government subsidies.

    How are Americans, especially poor Americans, going to be able to eat healthy when what is affordable are the contents of a Big Mac? When will these subsidies be changed to support even the new diet plan? Will the government ever do anything to make fruit and vegetables more affordable, particularly from local sources? You can’t exactly buy at a farmer’s market on food stamps, and since it’s front-loaded to the month the things that make sense to buy are all highly packaged and processed to try to insure being able to eat for the next four weeks.

    It’s a step in the right direction, but shoving tax money at the exact foods we’re supposed to be eating less of makes it all a bandaid on the problem.

  3. Love your graphic! Eating well has always been a struggle in our home, but the husband and I have doggedly persisted over the years in making an effort. I’m going to remember your plate next time I make dinner. 🙂

  4. Fantastic. The wine and chocolate could be part of the other. Many people have allergies or don’t like wine or chocolate. The idea is great. I eat that way, but I don’t lose weight. We eat a very healthy diet in our house.
