That's funny.....

....I tried the new USDA food recommendations, and no matter hard I try, I'm gaining weight.  It wouldn't have anything to do with the fact that my favorite plate is two feet in diameter, and my favorite cup is a liter beer mug, would it?

Seriously, I think it's time to stop the "Mickey Mouse" efforts to teach innumerate Americans how to eat right with new gimmicks, and admit that the past 50 years of government proselytization regarding diet have achieved nothing but failure.  If they didn't understand the "four food groups" I learned as a kid, or the food pyramid that was introduced in the 1990s, they're not going to suddenly figure it out with Mrs. Obama's plate, either.

  1. Amen to that! The four basic food groups is one of the wisest things we will ever have learned, and to deviate from it is to lose balanced nutrition. I'm just waiting for the Obamas to be gone.
