    Exclamation 2010 Dietary Guidelines

    I'm actually surprised that this area of the forum isn't full of threads and facts. I hope the administrators can make a "sticky" of this thread and keep this at the top for people to reference and use as needed. Our nutrition is the key to get the look and feel we want! Not just how many reps and pounds we can lift. I hope this is useful for everyone.

    Well I tried to upload the file but it kept giving me errors. Here is the link where you can download it yourself. Don't bother printing it please! Save the paper and ink and simply view it on your computer. I know...I'll get off my "Be Green" soap box!

    Agreed, but they do put a disclaimer at the bottom of the suggestions. States that the values are for those with <30 minutes of exercise a day.

    It's government research. Can't expect much.

    Cows milk should not be included in this. If you need to drink milk drink goats milk. Goats milk is alkaline unlike cows milk. Goats milk does not need to be homogenized unlike cows milk. Goat milk takes about an hour to be assimilate in the body, and not 24 hours like cows milk. Most people who are lactose intolerant can drink goats milk without a side effect.

    This is not new information many other countries drink goats milk over cows milk and have done so for a long time. The only reason cows milk is on the my plate is because the dairy industry funds it.

    That whole thing about milk making strong bones, well it does just the opposite. I've heard that it's because it's acidic and the body pulls calcium out of the bones to bring the body's PH back into balance. Regardless of the how, studies show that in areas where there is a lot of cow milk consumption this is a strong correlation to bone fractures.

    I wont site my sources, google is your friend.

    I can't say that I completely disagree with cow's milk being overrated. I will cite a few sources so that others can do their own research.

    The pH levels of the two are nearly identical (within +- .3). Cow's milk is slightly more acidic, but not dramatically. I do believe that lactose intolerance is more prominent than most people believe. Personally, I don't drink cow's milk often. I tend to drink soy when I do drink milk.

    Americans drink cow's milk because it's abundant. Much in the way that other countries drink goats milk (because it's abundant in their locale). It has little to do with them realizing any difference between the two. Reference: [URL]http://chartsbin.com/view/1487[/URL]

    I don't think milk depletes calcium in the body, but I do believe that calcium deficiency is high. I would attribute this to poor diets rather than milk. I think (most) people fail to realize that you need other types of foods (like dark leafy veggies) to get the necessary nutrients.
