USA adopts the Swedish Plate Model?

11Jun11

The Diet Doctor (in English) and LCHF.se (in Swedish) comments on USDA’s launch of USA’s very own version of the Swedish Plate Model. It’s called “My Plate” and apparently it costed $2 million to develop. The American plate is divided into four parts, but the message is roughly the same fat-phobic as usual, and not far from the Swedish guidelines.

Huge contrast, huh? The only major difference is that one was launched almost 20 years ago. And it’s a real shame that the USDA haven’t noticed that obesity have sky-rocketed in Sweden since then…

Well, at least this should be good news for McDonald’s in the USA, as they now can adopt My Plate and sell more Happy Meals. Here in Sweden they got Claude Marcus (professor in pediatrics and specialized in obesity, also a famous low-carb critic) to vouch for the concept “New Happy Meal according to the Plate Model”. So what’s next?
