Anyone see this? Just read about it on the New York Times.

Theyre gettin closer. Though, this is a huge improvement over the 'mypyramid' that the government has been semi promoting.

I like the emphasis on daily activity. Nice to see it placed at the base of the pyramid. Other than that, it's refreshing to see oils recognized for their benefits. I enjoy cruising the vegetarian/vegan message boards/blogs to see all of the fuss about "fats". It's far better than the USDA crap, but it still looks geared to global sustainability over nutrients per calorie, no surprise.
