Leave Me Alone, I'm Trying to Eat!

As if one pyramid wasn't confusing enough, the USDA now wants us to follow new nutrition guidelines containing twelve new ones!

This begs the question: If the American people won't follow guidelines listed on one single pyramid, what makes them think we would be willing to keep up with twelve?

According to The Swift Report, the USDA actually paid the public relations firm Porter Novelli $2.5 million to overhaul the old food pyramid. That's a lot of taxpayer dollars to spend to overhaul a program that never worked in the first place, not to mention the millions that will be spent each year to keep the program afloat.

Would someone please pass the individual responsibility?
