I am just going to come straight out and say it. I believe the food pyramid as we know it is wrong.
I believe that it is not just slightly wrong, I believe it is way out of wack for what should be considered healthy eating.
As it currently stands, you can find various definitions of how the food pyramid should look just by doing a simple Google search.
Nutrition Australia’s food pyramid shows us that we should be eating mostly vegetables, dried peas, lentils, cereal, bread, fruit and nuts.
We should be eating lean meat, eggs, fish, chicken (without skin), milk, yoghurt and cheese moderately.
Finally in small amounts we should be eating oil, margarine, reduced fat spreads, butter and sugar.
Wow. No wonder why are waist lines are continuously expanding.
That is astounding that a recognized authority organization can recommend that people should be eating some of this rubbish.
Don’t just think that Nutrition Australia is the only organization pedaling this line. They were the best of a bad bunch. At least they actually had vegetables, fruits and buts on the bottom of the pyramid. Every other organization recommends that breads and cereals be on the most consumed list.
You may think I am joking. Unfortunately, I am deadly serious my friend. Pun intended, as that is what people are slowly doing to themselves by following these recommendations every day. You are just digging your way to an early grave.
So, how should the revitalized, Aussie Fatblast inspired food pyramid look?
First of all, the foods that we should be eating the most comprise of vegetables first and foremost, followed by lentils, fruits and nuts.
Next group on the pyramid are the foods that we should be eating moderately. These are made up meat or meat alternatives just like fish, chicken, eggs to name three examples. Limit your red meat intake.
The foods that we should eat sparingly include dairy products like butter, milk and yoghurt and grains like pasta and rice. I would recommend once a day at most for people looking to lose body fat.
No, you do not need dairy to provide you with calcium. That is what the marketing from the nutrition and dairy organizations would like you to believe but you will get enough calcium from canned fish like salmon (eat the bones), nuts, fruits, vegetables (especially leafy greens), and dried beans.
The foods that should be at the top of the pyramid comprise the foods that we should only be eating as part of a cheat meal occasionally. These would include foods that are highly processed such as breads, sweets or fast foods.
Yes, I include breads in this bad group. That is how detrimental it is to achieving your ultimate fat loss results.
Bread is processed. It does not grow in the ground, or on a vine or a tree like vegetables, nuts or fruits do. It is highly processed rubbish that is keeping you from burning your body fat.
I also do not include sugar, breakfast cereals, reduced fat spreads or margarine. These trans fat containing foods are causing your waist line to expand each and every single day.
Sugar does not have trans fat but it is a whole poison on its own. There is enough natural sugar in fruits to sustain you without adding it to every coffee you drink or overdosing on processed, sugar soaked sweets or breakfast cereals.
In wrapping up, it may seem controversial but if you follow the recommendations I have listed here instead of what the recognized nutrition authorities are preaching to you, I am extremely confident that you will be looking sensational and enjoying the body fat that you are shedding at a rate like never before.
Be a pioneer, change your own personal food pyramid and enjoy the increased fat loss results that you will soon be experiencing.
