New Dietary Guidelines Just Out

But don’t get excited, I didn’t find much of anything new here. Except maybe eggs are okay again as well as coffee – up to 5 cups a day to get your mojo back.

For a review from the Los Angeles Times click here.

But these new guidelines make me think. Do people in the Blue Zones, areas of the world where people live the longest, like Southern Italy and Greece for instance, follow government-issued dietary guidelines? Are there even government guidelines issued to people in Okinawa, Japan, another Blue Zone? Or do they just do what they’ve been doing for centuries? Eat as their ancestors have, native and local produce, fish out of the sea, and drink wine produced in the hood.

With US food lobbyists in bed with big food manufacturers and our government, I think you have to take this all with a grain of salt. Do your own research, look further than our guidelines, see what works for you and use some common sense to eat for your best health.
