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.

An even stranger version, meat once a week? (colour coded)

It's pretty close to Paleo. Grains and legumes are a no go.

I just started seriously carb cycling this week. Lots of protein and fats, mostly from dairy and meat, then lots of protein and carbs but very little fat peri-workout. I even have both whole and fat-free milk to choose from. So far the results have been SICK. I swear I feel like I over eat, but I've lost a few ounces. And I'm on the last week of a cycle of Epistane, which increases appetite and has already given me 5lbs of lean gains in 3 weeks. If I hadn't carb cycled I know I would have gained weight.

Consider me a convert to the anti-carb lifestyle.

Same thing happens to me the first week back on Paleo. I eat a lot and usually lose several pounds.
