    Ah, I'm guessing the research is included. But nutrition has been researched out the wazoo. Why do we need to keep reinventing the wheel? More fruits and veggies, less sugars and starches. Take a vitamin daily. It's not rocket surgery.

    I cannot find a reference to the 2 million cost associated with this, nor what that bought. Maybe the OP could provide those so people actually had enough information.

    The human body is very complex, I expect that this recommendation as to which is the best portion sizes will change over the years as we learn more. More fruits and veggies and less sugars and starches is a good recommendation, but how much less? You can't answer that sort of question without research. In fact, it was likely from the old food portion suggestions and the campaign the government ran in the 50s and 60s that you even consider such a thing common sense. However, that campaign does need to be repeated for each new generation.

    What kind of surgical equipment do you need for rocket surgery, and who does it, doctors or mechanics?

    So you don't know what the 2 million bought, but you think it is too much? You do not understand keeping research current with new knowledge. You are throwing a fit over something that accounted for about .01 % of the US budget, assuming it was paid for by the US government and not private donations(do you actually know this, or are you assuming again?).

    Do you have any other painfully trivial bitches to make?

    You know - slightly off subject - but I have a serious problem taking any such advise from soemone who doesn't look like they're practiciing what they preach.

    I see Mrs Obama getting a little thick and don't imagine she remotely follows the food pyramid. In the same way I don't think that a aesthetician with acne knows a single thing about proper skin care. Or like the overweight gym instructor at my kid's elementary school.

    maybe I'm snide

    This is a stupid complaint. Food pyramid has been around since 92 when Bush HW was president and the gov has been helping with dietary guidelines for a long time. This is not a waste of money considering the last pyramid had no information on it other than different colors. Now people know. One thing I notice people think protein protein protein but for someone who is not actively doing resistance training protein is recommended only 10-12 percent of calories a day. Fats should be more abundant than protein actually in most people

    The food pyramid is a lot older than that.

    Wow! Holy ****! Mrs. Obama is not, in any way, shape or form, at an unhealthy weight. I mean seriously, this has to be one of the stupidest things I have read here in awhile.

    Gargantuan is correct. The food pyramid was introduced in 1992, replacing the previous "4 basic food groups".

    Wiki: Food guide pyramid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    When I went to school, it was the 4 basic food groups, no pyramid.
