This year, a group in Sweden proposed the first ever global dietary plan intended to save our health and the planet. Their recommendations include less than half an ounce of red meat per day, only 1/4 of an egg a day, yet 8 tsp of white sugar is allowed. The diet also calls for the elimination of processed foods, but “unsaturated oils” are the main source of fats. And in an effort to also address emissions, red meat has been targeted as the worst possible food. But did the researchers even actually consult with any environmental experts, and how can this diet work for those who live in areas that don’t support grain production and already face malnutrition? Diana Rodgers, registered dietitian and sustainability advocate breaks down how misguided the EAT Lancet recommendations really are.
