National Food Guides

I think that state-published food guides are a complete scam. They dictate what a healthy meal looks like, whilst using outdated data and pushing foods forward that are backed by the big corpos that produce them.
Like seriously, pasta and bread? How the frick is that healthy with what we know now?

          I think having your own alphabet (canadian syllabary), whether or not it was made by a foreigner, is less colonising than using the latin alphabet. Plus, it adds 64% more sovl to it. Just my opinion.

    Yes. The idea of a 'balanced meal' is all marketing horseshit. For a deeper dive, read picrel. It's a trip.

    It's true. The body can absorb about 8~10g protein per hour, that being bioavailable animal protein. Not only is plant protein harder to absorb, it's also has a horrible amino acid profile.
    Imagine buying a Lego car with 1000 pieces, a good chunk is straight out unusable papermache and the rest is almost only tires. While on paper it's still 1000 pieces you can't barely do anything with it. And that's the relationship between the human body and plant protein.
    High carbs is also only a thing to feed the population on a budget. The proper, holistic, way would be high animal protein to build the body, high fat to hit TDEE and trace carbs.
    It also plays a huge role for growth. In developing countries lack of protein leads to less height. After having enough protein, the quality (read: bioavailability) is the next deciding factor. Calcium and vit D and K2 are also a big factor.

    So in conclusion deenz/anchovies with skin and bone in EVOO are one of the healthiest foods out there. Minced meat, bone broth, avocados (not guacamole or avocado toast) are also high up there.
    Cereal is very bad and literally was invented cause Kellog believed sex was bad and he developed it cause it lowered libido.
    The food pyramid was founded and sponsored by the grain industry, so keep that in mind.

    If you're looking to educate yourself read Countdown by Dr Shanna Swan, Deep Nutrition by Dr Catherine Shanahan, Outlive by Dr Peter Attia, Why we sleep by Matthew Walker, and Propaganda by Edward Bernays.

      I bet it tasted better then the court said you know what? Let's make it all fruit and lets make it taste worse and get mushy after a couple of days so farmers choose to harvest more wheat instead

      Stopped there. You don't know what you're talking about, go read up on how the microbiome works. Amino acid profiles only matter if you a plate full of 1 ingredient as a meal. No one eats lentils, grains, or root vegetables by themselves.

    I thought Inuit people had a very high propensity for diabetes, even compared to other native Americans. Seems like a lot of carbs. Isn’t their historic diet literally 90% seal meat and blubber?

      Correct, and that fact alone accentuates my point

        In that case this seems particularly insidious of the Canadian government. I’d love to see some sort of study about the optimal diet for various ethnic groups but of course that will never happen and any published results would be dubious at best.

    People who eat more whole grains generally live longer and have less disease.

    > Intake of whole grains is associated with decreased body weight

    > https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/24158434/
    > Whole grain intake is associated with decreased risk of Type 2 Diabetes and refined grains are NOT associated with increased risk of Type 2 Diabetes

    > https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32552292/
    > Increasing tertiles of fiber intake were significantly associated with 3% lowered risk MetS in adolescents age 13-18 years. Additionally, increasing intake tertiles of fiber were associated with reduced risk elevated cholesterol (5-11% reduction), elevated diastolic blood pressure (10-23% reduction) in adolescents age 13-18 years, and risk of obesity (3-5% reduction) in children and adolescent age 2-18 years. Increasing tertiles of whole grain intake were only associated with reduced risk of elevated triglycerides (52% risk reduction) in adolescents age 13-18 years.

    I'm disappointed about the lack of State-published food guides on this thread. I'm not going to do anything about it though.

        Nothing at all wrong with full fat, but yes you get plain and add healthy things to it. Full fat is almost unpleasantly rich and creamy anyway, I prefer 2%
        >beans
        Nothing wrong with sodium if you drink enough water and move around. Also there’s not 0mg sodium in beans, even beans you grow and cook yourself
        >vegetable oil
        LOL
        >soda
        Yeah obviously. If you drank more plain water you could enjoy salt on your beans

        Thanks for reading my blog

    Brazil's is pretty based. TL,DR: avoid factory slop and cook with natural, local ingredients.

      South and Central America seem to have a good handle on these things. Iirc during covid the el salvadoran government told everyone to eat citrus, drink water, lose weight, breathe fresh air and get 8 hrs sleep/night and not one other western country did anything close to that sensible.
