Missing the Bigger Picture

I was recently at a meeting where they reviewed the "new" food pyramid. Yes I realize it's not all that new as it has been around for at least a couple years now.

These so called health experts went over the differences from the old to the new. One of which is that all food groups are essential. The thing that bothered me the most is that they missed what I would deem the largest change, which was the silhouette climbing the stairs signifying the need for activity.

They spent so much time going over the food that they forgot to mention the fact that exercise plays a crucial role in overall health and fitness. It's important to have a mixture of both. So oddly enough I think the food pyramid is making strides in the right direction. Though I don't necessarily agree with it 100%, it certainly can be a valuable tool to someone that is a nutritional degenerate.
