In brief: Don't laugh...

... Uncle sam's site at http://www.
Nutrition.Gov/ seems generally accurate, comprehensive and fair, at least for now. One of the things that i think the last administration got right was the "my pyramid" -- eat what you like within common sense & your personal health, and get plenty of exercise.

Relying on any website for nutritional information is fraught with danger. There is a lot of inaccurate information on the web, including about the benefits of using many supplements. Even the govt't website bowed to pressure from the dairy industry and may not be deemed reliable. Web-based advice is generally generic and will not address your specific, personal needs. The professional most educated about nutrition is a registered dietitan. Seek out such a professional for your best source of nutritional information.

Agreed. The government's was the best I could find right now, but their recommendations change every few years as the political winds blow. In fact, Uncle Sam used to consider butter to be "one of the seven essential food groups", the infamous "four basic food groups" of the 1950's was dairy industry disinformation.
