In March the latest version of the official UK Eatwell Guide was publicized, recommending people to base their meals on bread, rice, pasta and potatoes. Dietary expert Dr. Zoe Harcombe has this to say:
I would call this the “EatBadly” plate rather than the “EatWell” plate.
The Government’s most recent recommendations could lead to both weight gain and type 2 diabetes according to Dr. Harcombe. And she points out that there is no credible evidence supporting the Eatwell Guide.
On a side note almost half of the reference group that assisted in designing the graphic for the Eatwell plate were representatives of the food industry.
