Why are we talking about Obama's when the thread is not about any of this?

It is not accurate at all. This is your spin. But you folks always want to be outraged so I will leave you to your ignorance and sadness. Stupid

The report is open for public comment for 45 days, and will be used as the basis by the government agencies to develop the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The guidelines are used as the basis for government food assistance programs, nutrition education efforts, and for making “decisions about national health objectives.”


This from the posted OP, and I did take the time to skim part of the 517 page original report. It is an accurate quote.

I love oatmeal With butter not milk or sugar though. lso I like grits with a little butter and melted cheese or as a compliment to fried fish with a little fish giblets from the pan thrown on top of the grits. Yummy.

Because Americans' weight, diet etc. is one thing where Michelle O. had imposed her beliefs. No I won't posts sources it is well known so look it up yourself.

I don't know but these tiresome "Let's be outraged" stories just to stir people up and they always aim at the same targets or rehash some other nonsense. This was simply a research document to advise two agencies on discoveries and trends in food and health. It was a hyped up story and you can tell by simply looking over the document. Don't take my word. Go look at it.

The gist of what I've been trying to say is that I don't think the government is trying to tell us how to eat anymore than they ever have.
Post all the icky Michelle meals you like.
We are guided with suggestions on how to eat and what food choices to make for ourselves.

No one forces a kid to eat hummus and an apple for lunch.
Mom can pack the kid a ham and cheese sandwich with potato chips if she wants to.
I can eat the most unhealthy shlt on the planet, but choose not to (most times) lol

I think it's also important to exercise. It's even better for your head than your body. Too much obesity is a problem in our country. The standard size of a strand of pearls used to be 16 inches. Now it's 18 to 20.
