What is a healthy food pyramid?

Balanced meals

Nutrition
You can look at the recommnended food plate or the old food pyramid...basically though eating a variety of foods and a variety of colors is helpful. According to one nutritionist I know,she recommends eating at every meal one carb and 2 proteins or 2 carbs and one protein. We should all have leafy greens, fruits (anything that grows from a flower) and protein- which can come from many sources.

What does the food pyramid tell us?

Which pyramid?

Nutrition
The pyramid has been replaced by "my food plate" by the USDA. Although some improvements were made, I still don't believe this reflects optimal nutrition. I prefer this one: http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART02995/Dr-Weil-Anti-Inflammatory-Food-Pyramid.html

Help! Exactly what is the food pyramid?

It depends

Symptoms depend on where the cancer is. If localized to the lungs, there are often no symptoms. Once the tumor is large enough a cough or coughing blood may develop. If the cancer spreads, then symptoms depends on where. Cancer in the bone, for example may cause pain.

Who does the food pyramid not work for?

No one

Nutrition
The food pyramid is NOT a healthy way to eat. Look at the many resources that show you how to eat with a Paleo or primal approach to your diet. Keep in mind that the only thing your body needs carbohydrates for is fuel for your metabolism. And the average person only needs about 100 grams per day.

Why are bread/grains still on the food pyramid?

Good question :-)

Fiber
Many people can tolerate grains and wheat breads, without difficulty. Some can be good sources of protein and other nutrients. If you're a person who doesn't tolerate these though, your own food pyramid would look different. Neurologist Dr. David Perlmutter has written a very interesting book about grains and the brain. http://tinyurl.com/mof6qj8 It provides some things to think about!
