Fortunately, the experimenting I have done for myself (and many other die-hard paleo converts would say the same) proves that I feel incredible when I eat coconut oil, pastured butter/cream, raw milk, and eggs, and crappy when I skip them.
Maybe I will die at 85 instead of 87, but I have healed lifelong chronic disease, upped my energy level, toned my body, lost belly fat, cleared up my skin, and de-fogged my brain, so I am going to keep doing what's working, even if a poorly designed study tells me not to.
And last time I checked, aren't those "nutrition guidelines" created by the same government that subsidizes monoculture and hires Monsanto employees to head the FDA? No thanks.
Oh I'm sure if you've stopped eating the SAD diet you've improved your life, it's very easy to improve from a fast food diet.
That's not to say there is no way of improving further.
Admitedly governments are influenced by lobbiest from the meat, dairy, and grains they subsidize, in terms of Non-government recomendations.

the government" isn't really a singular entity, nor is there only a single government that has nutrition guidelines . . . Admittedly governments are influenced by lobbyists from the meat, dairy, and grains they subsidize, in terms of Non-government recommendations.
... If you check, the vast majority of guidelines around the world, promote having vegetables and fruits as the largest category, followed by grains, only then followed by meat&alternatives, dairy&alternatives and other.
Well it's the ten worst years, isn't it folks? It's the ones at the end! It's the wheelchair, kidney dialysis, adult diaper f--king years. You can have those years! We don't want 'em, alright?
. . . I for one - will not accept ANYTHING stamped by, approved by, or recommended by the USDA, FDA, EPA or the E.T.C. I could cite dozens of anecdotal examples why I'm so jaded ... here's a recent one:
A "normal" mangosteen powder will typically show only 0.12 to 0.17 ppm of lead. But this USDA certified organic mangosteen powder contains nearly 100 times the typical levels of lead (and is obviously contaminated). This also tells you that in some cases, "organic" means nothing at all. - - Mike Adams, Natural News
