I've just been reading Jimmy Moore's blog post about yet another "plate," supposedly superior to the USDA's "My Plate." I can see little difference and as usual, it totally ignores the thousands in this nation with type I and type II diabetes! Not to mention those of us who are merely carb sensitive and need a high fat low carb diet to be healthy. Sigh... Here is the address for Jimmy's article. Very interesting and too long to copy and paste:
The Harvard School of Public Health is hosting a LIVE one-hour Q&A session about the “Healthy Eating Plate” with Dr. Eric Rimm, associate professor in the departments of epidemiology and nutrition at Harvard, on Tuesday, October 4, 2011 at 2:30PM EST. You must SIGN UP to be a part of this discussion that is happening tomorrow. Dr. Rimm was one of the people responsible for creating the “Healthy Eating Plate” and he wants to hear YOUR feedback about it. If you are unable to attend the event when it takes place, then they have two other ways you can submit your questions: E-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org or submit them on Twitter using the hashtag #platetalk.
I strongly urge all of you low carbers to participate in this if you're able. We need to have our voices heard! Are the high carb folks the only ones being listened to? Make your voice heard, either by participating or sending written questions and comments. I don't know if Dr. Rimm will pay attention, but it's certainly worth a try!
