I notice the list is silent on the subject of beer, so the obvious conclusion is that beer, aka "liquid bread", is the perfect food. I invite everyone to hoist one and toast each other's good health.

Wow, as someone who did a lot of reading about diet that's too close to reality.

Perfect. It just needs to be updated monthly (or weekly. daily, etc) with the new "must do" and "verboten" items du jour....

My favorite piece of diet advice:

Everything in moderation. Including moderation.

You forgot to mention this conclusion was from a study of 250,000 doctors, nutritionists and fitness experts that can't come to any agreement on proper diet and exercise habits.

Doctors have less training about nutrition than ED Jones gives their salespeople about investing.
