Time has proven that the government-ordained food pyramids are inadequate as health guidelines. In May, 2003, the White House strongly recommended that the US Departments of Agriculture and Health & Human Services revise the food guide pyramid and dietary guidelines to increase omega-3 and decrease trans fats for better health. (Click here to view the White House press releases) Udo has written two articles on this subject, White House tells USDA and HHS: Increase omega-3 / EFA; Decrease Trans Fats, and FDA Requires Trans Fat Labeling on Foods by 2006.

Udo's 3 Diet Pyramids are for consideration for adults who fall into one of the three following catagories: HEALTHY PEOPLE (people who are near normal weight who have no major health problems); SICK PEOPLE (people who suffer from chronic degenerative diseases); and ACTIVE PEOPLE (people such as professional athletes, construction laborers and fitness buffs who burn more calories in physical activity than average). Click on each one of the above pyramid icons to see the full diagram. These pyramids illustrate general dietary principles; they are educational in nature; individuals should consult with health care professionals before making dietary changes.

Udo's Choice™ Food Processing Pyramid: omega-3 and EFA's are destroyed by manufacturing

There is no doubt - after decades of supporting research - that processing and manufacturing techniques, created primarily to manipulate flavor and extend shelf-life, have contributed significantly to the epidemic levels of chronic degenerative disease that plague modern society.

Udo's FOOD PROCESSING PYRAMID stresses the importance of raw, whole, fresh foods, and de-emphasises highly-processed food items which are linked to degenerative disease.
