Default Food pyramid variant/s...

The original food pyramid was originally introduced in Sweden in 1974...the USA then adapted it to the following:

Fats: eat sparingly
Meat/poultry/fish/eggs/nuts: 2-3 servings daily
Milk/cheese/yoghurt: 2-3 servings daily
Veggies: 3-5 servings daily
Fruit: 2-4 servings daily
Carbs: 6-11 servings daily


*Men's Fitness (magazine) variant:
Fats: 2-3 servings daily
Meat/poultry/fish/eggs/nuts: 3-5 servings daily
Milk/cheese/yoghurt: 1-2 servings daily
Veggies: 8-10 servings daily
Fruit: 2-3 servings daily
Carbs: 1-2 servings daily


*(taken from the September 2011 issue of Men's Fitness magazine)



I've no idea if the variant is close to paleo or not, so I haven't placed this in the Paleo section, but it's interesting to note that they claim it is a better pyramid structure. I now wonder what the original Swedish food pyramid looked like. The idea of 8-10 servings of fruit and veg is certainly not new as that has been brought up previously in several articles that I've come across.

Anyway, maybe someone will find it handy.
