No big headlines this time around, but if you don’t want to read the 571 page document for the  2015  U. S. Dietary Guidelines, here are some highlights from The Atlantic.   The recommendations, though vague,  stress moderation and resemble the Mediterranean Diet.   Another way to put it:  “Eat food, not too much, mostly plants”, so Michael Pollan has it right.  Read his Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual.  So much more fun.
