There's apparently a webcast that will appear on the site soon, explaining the latest changes.

I wonder if a class action could work?

I remember growing up and being at a girlfriend's house, and she was deliberately putting MSG and vegetable oil on her salads. Needless to say, she has health problems today.

Kent you are so right - I'm 39 years old, I started getting chubby at about age 9 and it only got worse from there. Especially once my mom put me on her low fat diet. The sad part for me is that I didn't "get it" until about a year ago. Better late than never I suppose.

I also laugh about how they point out it's evidence-based recommendations, yet the evidence ought to clearly show that the last ~30 years of their advice is evidently a bunch of bunk.

You're right. I'm a nurse and I didn't get it until I ws 45, 30 lbs overweight and borderline diabetic. I Cured it all with a Paleo diet going on 5 years now. If people would only wake up. All around me I see fat nurses who don't know squat about diet, slamm'n down that junk food. It's hard though when your own government pushes crap.

Has anyone else notice that they recommend more whole grains yet warn against refined grain?

Ever look in a bag of whole wheat flour?

It looks pretty refined to me.

Incompetence on this level is as bad as outright malice.

Yet another installment of nannying bureaucrats deciding what they think is best for me, when I didn't even ask for it.

• Enjoy your food, but eat less. • Avoid oversized portions. • Make half your plate fruits and vegetables. • Switch to fat-free or low-fat (1%) milk. • Compare sodium in foods like soup, bread, and frozen meals – and choose the foods with lower numbers. • Drink water instead of sugary drinks.

Well, I will admit that the 3rd one is not a bad place to start but what do you put on the other half the plate?

I laugh at number 4, fat free would be even worse for peopel then whole milk.

I don't think anyone can argue with that the last one, drink water, so maybe... its a start?

By Revision numner 207 they will get it right?

Nothing is even mentioned about avoiding MSG which is a main contributor to obesity.

Not only does eating foods with it cause weight gain and "viseral fat", but it also stimulates appetite which makes people eat more and more food. It's a cycle that never ends.

MSG creates food addicts along with sugar. They are both drugs and reward the brain and tongue when consumed.

MSG is worse than sugar though because it's a neurotoxin. MSG, like aspartame is in the same class of substances called "Excitotoxins". Nerve cells are damaged and killed by excessive stimulation by neurotransmitters such as glutamate and others when an excitotoxin is consumed. This causes tons of mental and physical health problems.

I recommend reading "Excitotoxins: The Taste that Kills" by Dr. Russell Blaylock. Prepare to be shocked, the amount of damage it does is incredible and what's scary is how it's in most processed foods hiding under other names like "hydrolyzed protein", "natural flavors", "yeast extract" ect. There are hundreds of other names for MSG. Most fast food and sit-down restaurants have MSG-laden food too, the only way to avoid it is eating at more expensive places that make everything from scratch.
