You know I have been writing asking everyone about how everyone eats, especially about starches and a food plan daily. Everyone has responed that they eat only 1-2 servings daily of starchy foods to lose weight. I was re-reading my SB book again. and it was talking about they believe the problem of obesity in the US has been caused by the population adhering to the govenments recommended food pyramid. To use the propose pyramid in Appendix A. Well in looking at that pyramid they suggest Fats/sweets use sparingly; milk/yogurt/cheese group 2-3 servings and vegetable oild 1-2 servings; beans/soy/legumes/nuts 1-2 servings;
High fiber vegetable group- 3-5 servings/ lean & trimmed meats/poultry, fish and eggs- 2-3 servings/ Fruit group 2-4 servings. Now comes the kicker!!!!!!!!--- Whole grain bread/cereal/rice/&pasta group - 6-10 servings. How in the heck can you eat that much and every lose weight????????????

Sorry this is so long, but I just re-read this and had been talking about this and I just needed to post. Why would they suggest so much starcy carbs??????????

? confused.

Thanks everyone for letting me write ....
