The US government’s diet guidelines are starting to catch up with reality. As I noted here, the official Food Guide Pyramid is disastrously wrong, misinforming people about what to eat. Well, the pyramid is about to get an overhaul, based on new diet guidelines just released, as the New York Timesreports.

Of course, it would be simpler for the US Department of Agriculture simply to adopt the Healthy Eating Pyramid already introduced by Walter Willett of Harvard.
