Daily prescription of food

Human beings have survived centuries on food, eating when its available and going hungry in the lean times. But now they say that we must have 5 protions of fruit and veg a day, and lots of whole grain, and not too much fat or salt or sugar.

I’m not saying that we should gorge ourselves, but who the hell suddenly decided that we have to have 5 portions a day? And why the hell is whole grain good for your heart?!

Basically this is a bit of a rant to people asking them to question the so called “facts” and “daily intakes of vitamins”. I mean, if we have to watch what we eat 24-7 like they tell us to then we would go insane and you have to wonder how human kind managed in the days before these rules!

p.s. what defines a portion?

  1. you have to wonder how human kind managed in the days before these rules

    Mortality rates were much higher “in the days before these rules”.
    I also believe I read somewhere that 40g constitutes a portion, although I’m willing to be proven wrong on that.

    Crikey, don’t they teach you kids anything these days? There’s no need to ask the blogosphere questions like that; ask Google instead
