The Obama administration has released an update to the US Dietary Guidelines. These guidelines are reviewed and revised every 5 years, and this year the biggest change concerns sugar.
Here's NPR's take on the changes.
I am happy to see some positive changes, as we obviously have some very real health crises going on in the US and many can be attributed to our over-consumption of sugar, namely in processed foods.
What do you think of the changes--did they go too far or not far enough? I personally wish they had called for more explicit changes in our meat consumption, but I guess the meat lobby was too strong for that this go-round.
