    Any links to these, I would have no idea what these say without looking.

    I'll stop being lazy, this is copies from the WHO website

    For adults

    A healthy diet includes the following:

    • Fruit, vegetables, legumes (e.g. lentils and beans), nuts and whole grains (e.g. unprocessed maize, millet, oats, wheat and brown rice).
    • At least 400 g (i.e. five portions) of fruit and vegetables per day (2), excluding potatoes, sweet potatoes, cassava and other starchy roots.
    • Less than 10% of total energy intake from free sugars (2, 7), which is equivalent to 50 g (or about 12 level teaspoons) for a person of healthy body weight consuming about 2000 calories per day, but ideally is less than 5% of total energy intake for additional health benefits (7). Free sugars are all sugars added to foods or drinks by the manufacturer, cook or consumer, as well as sugars naturally present in honey, syrups, fruit juices and fruit juice concentrates.
    • Less than 30% of total energy intake from fats (1, 2, 3). Unsaturated fats (found in fish, avocado and nuts, and in sunflower, soybean, canola and olive oils) are preferable to saturated fats (found in fatty meat, butter, palm and coconut oil, cream, cheese, ghee and lard) and trans-fats of all kinds, including both industrially-produced trans-fats (found in baked and fried foods, and pre-packaged snacks and foods, such as frozen pizza, pies, cookies, biscuits, wafers, and cooking oils and spreads) and ruminant trans-fats (found in meat and dairy foods from ruminant animals, such as cows, sheep, goats and camels). It is suggested that the intake of saturated fats be reduced to less than 10% of total energy intake and trans-fats to less than 1% of total energy intake (5). In particular, industrially-produced trans-fats are not part of a healthy diet and should be avoided (4, 6).
    • Less than 5 g of salt (equivalent to about one teaspoon) per day (8). Salt should be iodized.


    Nothing on there that looks too wrong to me.

    Given there is about 22g of sugar in 250ml of orange juice it wouldn’t be too hard to rack up 50g in a day for most adults.

    The guidelines are intended for every human on the planet and, as such, don't work.

    On the other hand, 2/3 of the planet live on, barely over or under the poverty line. The other 1/3 generally eat processed crap and don't exercise.

    So its a more complicated picture than a food pyramid.

    If you eat a few bits of fruit a day you are going to get around that.

    Do you eat any processed foods or have milk in your coffee or cereal or bread or biscuits or any type of sauce on your food etc etc
    Have you watched 'that sugar movie' it really is not hard for most adults to consume that much sugar. If you only eat whole foods and drink water then you probably aren't getting that much but most adults dont eat like that.
