New dietary guidelines say cut sugar, eat more plant foods, limit meatThe new 2015–2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans was published last Thursday, (January 7). According to Forks Over Knives writer, Naomi Imatome-Yun, “For the first time, the guidelines recommend a healthy eating pattern instead of focusing on individual food groups and nutrients. Some of the core nutrition advice, like eating a lot of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, has stayed the same. The newest recommendation is a strict limit to added sugar, saying it should make up not more than 10 percent of daily calories. The guidelines say to Lower intakes of meats, including processed meats; processed poultry; sugar-sweetened foods, particularly beverages; and refined grains have often been identified as characteristics of healthy eating patterns.”

Comments on the 2015–2020
Dietary Guidelines for Americans

by John McDougall, M.D., January 7, 2015: The 2015–2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans were released today (January 7, 2015) with some surprisingly positive conclusions considering the heavy influences of the meat, poultry, dairy, egg, and fish industries on the production of this document.

The careful reader will see strong warnings about consuming animal foods, such as “The Key Recommendation from the 2010 Dietary Guidelines to limit consumption of dietary cholesterol to 300 mg per day is not included in the 2015 edition, but this change does not suggest that dietary cholesterol is no longer important to consider when building healthy eating patterns. As recommended by the IOM, individuals should eat as little dietary cholesterol as possible while consuming a healthy eating pattern. In general, foods that are higher in dietary cholesterol, such as fatty meats and high-fat dairy products, are also higher in saturated fats…Strong evidence from mostly prospective cohort studies but also randomized controlled trials has shown that eating patterns that include lower intake of dietary cholesterol are associated with reduced risk of CVD, and moderate evidence indicates that these eating patterns are associated with reduced risk of obesity.” Eating as “little dietary cholesterol as possible” means following the McDougall Diet (starches, vegetables and fruits), since dietary cholesterol is found in animal foods (meat, poultry, dairy, egg, and fish). And saturated fat, in practical dietary terms, is synonymous with meat, poultry, dairy, and eggs.

The 2015–2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans says, “Some individuals, especially teen boys and adult men, also need to reduce overall intake of protein foods by decreasing intakes of meats, poultry, and eggs and increasing amounts of vegetables or other underconsumed food groups.”
