USDA Guidelines Vs. Doctor's Guidlines

Tray, Breakfast, Muesli, Fruits, Bowls

The USDA guidelines for health and nutrition are updated every 5 years. I was browsing Youtube looking for an exercise video when this video popped up and caught my attention. 

The video captures a doctor's speech addressing the USDA committee this year.
