New U.S. diet guidelines ignore science on sugar and alcohol

New federal dietary guidelines released Tuesday ignore advice from the government’s own scientific advisors who say the recommended limits for sugar and alcohol intake should be lower. Northwell Health Nutritionist and Program Director Sharon Zarabi joins CBS News correspondent Omar Villafranca with more on the updated guidelines and the new recommendations for mothers and babies.

    the 5/2 diet works really well, for 5 days you eat regularly, trying to make good food decisions, and then for 2 days you limit your calorie intake to less than 500. it’s amazing how much food you can have for under 500 calories for the whole day, you won’t starve, but you will reduce your intake and your waistline.

    I’m a little confused. So we are consuming about 13% of calories from sugar, the science says we should consume less than 6% and the new current guidelines are suggesting we should consume less than 10%?

    The US government is totally corrupted, the nature of what we’re experiencing is slow burn genocide.

    The Trump administration doesn’t follow science on anything

    How many times does she say, “… as a dietitian …” or the like? If you actually are an expert, you don’t need to qualify your expertise. Dr. Fauci, he’s an expert, doesn’t need to say it.

    So what you’re telling me is … sorry, you lost me at … somewhere near the beginning of the diatribe in stereo.

    Less sugar, less alcohol, more veggies, got it. And then you’re saying, as an expert … oh, snicker, they’re so old and stupid, I’m denying the fact that I’m practically middle aged, insert “dad joke,” ignore the fact that you know many skinny fried chicken three times a day alcoholics, I’m just telling you here and on my Tinder profile, “No, no, no, only looking for a serious relationship but I’m pansexual, non-binary, LGBT friendly but totally straight ….”

    I’m a film and television actor. Our meals are catered, and super healthy, despite all you can eat. That’s because actual chefs, people who will tell you that your omelette choices are unhealthy to your fat face at 6am on a Sunday even if you’re John Goodman, make us healthy food.

    What we really need is not some whiney millennial nutritionists, but actual experts in food to tell us what is proper food for a human being and how to make it.

    We are some fat Earthers that’s for sure

  15. EspressoBug on August 29, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    I look at what the healthiest and longest lived people groups tend to eat. And what their activity level is like. And the advice in the usa always falls flat.



  16. Lorra Allen on August 29, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    US government works to serve only their corporate donors.



  17. Ann Pringle on August 29, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    They will always ignore healthy food!
    The more junk and unhealthy food you eat! The more prescription drugs they can sell you! People are so over weight from eating so much sugar and salt, sugar drinks, and NO exercise!!
    The children eat the way the parents eat and over weight also! It’s about the money in our country!



  18. j7ndominica0 on August 29, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    The guidelines do not encourage whole dairy: it has to be low fat or a fake vegan plant infusion. The body does not care if the sugar is "added" or not. If they grind down some fruit, it’s the same fructose that goes to the liver.



  19. Sarah Davis on August 29, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Because the FDA is not our friend



  20. Elizabeth Gibson on August 29, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Yeah internet exercising. Alot of us only have the cell phone for internet.



  21. Charles Mabrie on August 29, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Hooray for rejecting the advisory panel on alcohol and sugar. For 50 years we’ve been advised that two drinks for men one for women is fine. Now based one one big study from the UK which I thought was inconclusive and agenda driven the scientific panel says men and women should consume the same amount. One drink. I’m glad someone stepped in and rejected the advisory panel. Leave us something we can enjoy in moderation.

    Dietary fat causes insulin resistance, not carbohydrate.



  23. annmarie anfield on August 30, 2021 at 12:00 am

    As long as we have 10 fast food restaurants in a small town! As long as we have leaders who don’t even touch upon health and wellness! As long as we make jokes about people’s weight! As long as we treat sports for kids as chance to win over a chance to exercise and learn about our bodies! As long as we don’t discuss seriously how bad Covid has been for us because we are unhealthy! As long as grocery stores have 100 choices of sugary cereals! As long as communities don’t care about bike paths or walking paths! As long as we have to work ourselves to death to pay our bills! You have to be one tough and determined person to fight for your health and wellness!

    Sugar can also destroy gums. Rinse mouth out with hot water/mouthwash to preserve.



  25. Ralph Bernhard on August 30, 2021 at 12:01 am

    Salt and sugar. Beware of those two.

    That’s because they don’t want healthy people! They’ve been trying to shorten our lifespan since the 40’s!



  28. Ralph Bernhard on August 30, 2021 at 12:05 am

    Processed food is designed to make people unhealthy, so that they have to bankrupt themselves paying medical bills.

    Stay far away from refined sugar. If you need to use sugar use Monkfruit.

    Since the 1977 McGovern commission report and the basis for the rubbish USDA food pyramid have lead to the increase in metabolic diseases rates ! Only 12% of Americans are metabolically healthy !

    Speaker at 1:30 SHE IS FACTUALLY WRONG! Typical “dietitians”!!

    SKIP ALL THE CARBOHYDRATES!
    No GRAINS
    NO FRUITS
    NO POTATOES!

    The calorie hypothesis has been long debunked!

    Eat to satiety mostly animal products and saturated fats as humans have done before industrialized foods were invented!

    The sugar industry has been lobbying the govt. for 70 years. Not very surprising.

    Forget the fat…I’m more worried about the billions of mask which will end up in ocean.
    Election fraud is another concern.
    Trump won.

    Classic lobbying pressures which kills the masses for money. America is once again very broken…
    These guidelines are meant to educate the public and help increase health hazards. Instead, they shove crap down the Masse’s throats. Absolutely criminal!
