They just couldn't keep bullshitting about this anymore, too many people called their crap and educated themselves on these matters. coffeetime.gif

New Nordic nutrition recommendations are turning attention away from total fat and carbohydrate intake and instead focusing on diet quality.

”Diets can include more fat as long as it’s the good kind,” said Ursula Schwab from the department of clinical nutrition at the University of Eastern Finland.

Quality counts when it comes to fats. While new guidelines are not placing an upper limit on fat intake, conference participants decided to keep minimum daily consumption levels for fats. A quarter of daily calories should stem from fatty sources.

”Getting too little fat is detrimental to health,”
said Schwab, who has been working on the new guidelines.

A low-carb diet craze has been sweeping the Western world for years, but the Nordic Nutrition Conference recommended that people's diets include more fibre-rich plant foods, such as leafy greens and beans--despite their carbohydrate content. Experts want to drive home the point that the bulk of consumed carbs should not come from foods with low nutritional value, such as sweetened beverages, sweet bakery products and refined cereals.

The draft guidelines also include increased recommended intakes for vitamin D and selenium.

cheers.gif That rules! The dietary guidelines we've been pushing for physical and mental health, coupled with regulation of good vs. bad (candida) gut bacteria has now come into the mainstream.
Look out big pharma profits, symptom treatment may well become a thing of the past soon, as will obesity.
I think we all know by now the food pyramid was purposefully made upside down in the name of farm profit.
These diet guidelines are nearly the "caveman" diet. This will really make a huge difference.

Yes it's definitely a huge step in the right direction. These recommendations become law this fall, meaning doctors and hospitals have to push that instead of 'low fat and salt' diet for everybody with any kind of health issues.
