The Canadian Food Guide Needs Updating

Eric, one of my readers, has a 10-year old son and not long ago, he received the Canadian food guide at school. Surprised by the recommendation of 6-8 servings of grains/fruit and 3-4 servings of milk a day, he decided to try the diet for himself. This video is an update after just three weeks on the plan. He gave up after this.

Make no mistake, the Canadian and US food guide is not based on science; it was designed to promote the products of commodity agriculture—processed foods made from wheat, corn, conventional milk, sugar, soy and seed oils.
