Last week, just before the canceled New Year’s holiday, the US federal government released updated dietary guidelines for the next five years.
You know what I’m talking about– these are the government guidelines that recommend we consume a certain amount of Calories, fats, protein, carbs, etc. every day.
I don’t know that anyone actually pays attention to this stuff; taking diet advice from the federal government is about as sensible as seeking moral direction from Congress.
But nevertheless the government still makes a big deal about its dietary standards.
