New Diet?
Is this a joke?
New diet guide: Count calories and exercise: Government sees chance to change health habits

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The government on Wednesday told Americans to slash their calorie intake and exercise 30 to 90 minutes a day, updating guidelines that advised people to lose weight but gave few specifics on how to do it.
Um, OK. I get a kick out of this part:
The guidelines were based on recommendations of a 13-member panel of scientists and doctors who spent nearly a year reviewing Americans' diet and health.
A 13-member panel of scientists worked for a year came up with count calories and exercise? That's f'ing brilliant man, I never would thought of that.
