When even AARP gets it so wrong

Received this one from the AARP – Super Foods that those over 50 should eat. Let me clear whilst i agree with most of the list the lean meat and low fat thing bothers the hell out of me.

It goes back to when I worked at a Grocery scoring company. We quickly figured out if it had salt, fat or sugar the scores would plummet. But the thing is all things in moderation fat, and salt of course. Less than 30g of sugar per day.

But it irritates me the constant attacks on dietary fat – it’s been this way ever since the late 1960’s when the medical establishment thought fats were very bad. That has of course has been proven so wrong.
