Food Pyramid Day is now 18

Time flies so fast that it was just in 1992 when the Dept. of Agriculture introduced the Food Pyramid, an initial attempt at a geometry-based dietary recommendation tool.

Kind of reminds what I ate today, since it's my so-called 'cheat day' to rest my body after that 5 mile run yesterday. And reviewing the USDA guidelines just made me go "whut?!" in amazament. I nommed some cheetos and cheeze chicken sandwich for starters, then a couple of cans of sodas - which doesn't belong to the chart as I have observed.

I better consult with my wife for that. Maybe she knows this. And another "whut?!" moment: 42 servings (a day!) of fruits and vegetables. I should prolly be living in barn.
