New Nutrition Propaganda Graphic

The government has relieved us of the drudgery of deciphering the food pyramid.   Almost two decades of having to actually read and understand the ratios of fats, grains, meats, and sweets are over.  Let the parade begin!

Their new reminder on how they think we should eat is called MyPlate:






Here at DaddyBear Laboratories, we've come up with our own graphic to show the ratios of the principle ingredients in a good, healthy diet that will not only keep your body strong, but will make you happier:

As you can see, not only are the basic needs of fruits, vegetables, grains, and protein taken care of, but all of the things that make plain old nutrition into a meal have been included.  Please feel free to post this in your kitchen, school cafeteria, and anywhere else good people go to enjoy food and life.

You know, if you eliminate the Coke (and sweet tea), this is pretty much the diet I used to lose 50 lbs. (And it was rum and gin instead of bourbon.)

The bourbon slice needs to be bigger. MUCH bigger!

I like yours better than moochelles and my input would be to change the bourbon to chocolate vodka. Then as cybrus says... make it bigger :)

Nancy, you can have my diet coke when you pry it from my cold dead hands. ;-)

Cybrus, that is only straight bourbon. It does not count the spirits mixed with the diet coke, or used in cooking the other food.

And of course Pissed, you can substitute out any of these foods for equivalent ingredients. If chocolate vodka gets you through the night, then please, enjoy!

If you took out the fastfood and replaced it with more fruit, then replace the coffee with rum, and take out the bourbon and replace it with more beer, that's me.

And I weigh ~170 lbs and am 6'5".

bluesun: You are also young enough to have the metabolism of a hamster on crack. When I was just out of college, I was 6' and 136 lbs.

DaddyBear: They may have to wait until Monday. I couldn't afford film and processing and there aren't many. And I'll have to find a scanner ...
