The 90s food pyramid was right

The 90s food pyramid was just a low fat diet. Oils almost never, artificial sweeteners never, dairy sparingly, little red meat, some lean white meat. Majority of the diet should be low fat fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. How have we slid back so far that people can't make the connection between dietary fat and its prevalence in modern foods and fast food and people getting fatter? Instead people have chosen to scapegoat carbs, which makes no sense. No one gets fat without eating large amounts of fat - vegetable oil, dairy, fatty meat etc. There is some recognition of this with the recognition that "seed oils" are unhealthy, but people are now hesitant to also extend this to other types of unhealthy plant oils like olive oil, or animal fats like lard and dairy. One has to wonder why we've chosen to call fat people fat, or tubs of lard, rather than carb or sugar.

    why isn't exercise a part of that table, I think that's the main problem. I didn't become fat until I stopped skateboarding as a hobby.

    You're probably baiting but yeah, the keto / anti-carb shit has gotten really stupid in recent years. The actual ketogenic diet is modestly helpful for children with epilepsy who don't respond to anticonvulsants and that's about it. It doesn't really help with inflammation in general and while it was tried historically for juvenile diabetes it's clearly not a great alternative to insulin for that condition unless you want your kid to stay below 100 lbs his or her entire 20 years or so life.
    Japanese people eat lots of carbs and vegetables and minimal amounts of meat and they're living longer than anyone on Earth. Probably a diet like theirs or the Mediterranean diet are the healthiest ways to eat. The more meat you eat generally the more inflammation and chronic disease risk you have, but also if you eat no meat at all you'll probably be malnourished and lose your hair and teeth. So eating some fish for protein along with rice / pasta and vegetables is a good middle ground between carnivore and vegan that avoids the pitfalls of either.

      In my 40s I developed a really sensitive stomach, and also for health reasons I changed up my whole diet. It’s really not that hard to eat healthy. We all know what we’re supposed to eat and not supposed to eat. I basically just eat like pic related for dinner, and a salad or a simple sandwich for lunch.

      Back when I was a trucker I almost hit 300lbs and I brought it all down by just simply buying those mixed veggies that steam in the bag and pairing it with sardines one day, chicken the next, and then I’d make like an epic salad with kidney beans and a boiled egg and lemon juice as dressing.

      It’s boring but it works.

      are you sure this isn't just correlated with obesity/eating excessively otherwise?

        I've read there are links between grain-fed meat and increasing inflammation too. That grass-fed beef, wild-caught fish, etc. are overall pretty healthy while grain-fed beef and fish aren't as healthy and that gets passed onto us.

    This is true and most criticism of the pyramid actually comes from people misinterpreting it, like saying that it supported companies dumping sugar in their products to replace the caloric density from fat but the pyramid makes it clear that added sugar (sweets) should only rarely be consumed. The low fat thing in America was just a scam, like instead of just cutting the dairy and sweeteners they just replaced the fat with sugar and kept eating dairy products like "low fat" yogurt and milk which weren't really even that low fat.

    The food pyramid goes hand in hand with exercise recommendations. Most will fail with the second part.

      My diet growing up wasn't identical to that.
      The bottom row was produce, 5-10 servings per day while grain and dairy were 2-3 servings daily each. Meat and fish came in last (1 serving daily; it's not a part of traditional breakfasts where I'm from and there's traditionally a slight taboo against meat at every meal) but eggs were eaten a lot, almost daily.
      Crisps and chips were rare. Cookies were even rarer. Vegetables and fruits were regular snacks. Fresh or pickled.

      it's designed with an active lifestyle and heavy physical activity in mind
      carbs are only useful if you plan on doing heavy exercise, as they provide immediate energy and allow you to exert much more effort
      if you are sedentary and follow the pyramid you're just gonna eat an excess of carbs which worsen diabetes

    Carbs raise insulin levels and insulin is a fat storage hormone. Look it up.

        Look it up yourself but it really is THAT simple and it's very sad this isn't being taught in schools which would eventually lead to cereals being banned.

        Your body LITERALLY cannot burn fat if insulin levels are high (what carbs do).

    Does any other animal need guidance on what foods to eat?

    I eat what I'm naturally attracted to - animal foods (meat, fat, eggs, etc), some fruit, very occasionally greens.

    Just think, what unprocessed food do you want? Wheat seeds? Of course not

    a "serving" is not an adequately defined unit of measure

      It's 85g of most things. The problem is that America measures servings volumetrically rather than by weight or mass so the exact amount that constitutes a serving varies item to item.
