Dietary guidelines are everywhere about what you should and shouldn’t eat.
Over how much or how little of something that you should eat.
In The USA The Department of Agriculture is the department that offers these guidelines.
These guidelines have changed over the years because the department updates them.
If you want to eat healthy and have a long life, like many people, you’ve probably paid careful attention to all of the scientific studies that come out about certain foods.
Because of those studies, you might change the way that you eat.
Despite what you may have heard, you shouldn’t rely only on the studies that come about to determine what you should or should not be consuming.
And that’s because….
Scientific Research About Dietary Guidelines Are Wrong!
You would think that something that’s been scientifically “proven” means that it’s infallible and that the research is accurate.
But unfortunately, that’s not the truth. The results are flawed!
The results of some dietary guideline studies should be ignored by the public.
They should be ignored because these studies are based on patterns.
A group of people are studied for the way that they eat in relation to the types of diseases and health problems that they have.
Studies that are performed this way are called epidemiological and what they cover in the study isn’t based on evidence that’s completely reliable.
That means that the studies are faulty.
But rather than share the details of how these conclusions were reached, many of these studies go ahead and publish their findings.
Then what happens is they come back later and say that they were wrong, but they do it in a roundabout way.
For example, many studies will claim that a food is bad for you one year, then the next thing you know, suddenly that food isn’t bad for you.
Eggs are an example of this. For years studies warned everyone to avoid eating a lot of eggs.
The claim was that eggs were high in cholesterol and should be limited because dietary cholesterol was a big no-no in your daily menu planning.
A new study, however, disproved that.
So then you have to ask yourself, “Which study was correct?”
Can you eat eggs the way that you’ve always done or do you have to limit them?
If you look up some of the studies that are done on certain foods that the public was warned about – coffee for example – you’ll see that all of a sudden, new information has come out.
As it turns out, coffee isn’t bad for you like you were told.
The biggest reason that some of these food studies were wrong is that the control group of people used in the study were already at high risk for developing certain health issues.
When people who are already at high risk of having a heart attack because of their lifestyle or genetic factors are used in a study concerning the effects of certain food on the body’s health, it skewers the results.
That’s not fair to you because…
If you’re going to follow certain dietary guidelines, then you deserve to know the entire truth about the food rather than a view that’s not accurate.
