PCRM Sues USDA Over MyPyramid

PCRM is suing the USDA in an effort to get the agency to dump its MyPyramid and replace it with PCRM’s Power Plate.

Compare each of the above sites. It’s almost as if MyPyramid is deliberately ugly and overwhelming. And it gets worse the deeper you dig: check out the actual pyramid. I’d love to know which USDA nitwit approved that design.

By contrast, PCRM’s power plate is a model of simplicity and elegance, largely because it reflects a sincere effort to create a food guide that people will actually find useful.
