The issues are so big that many doctors and dietitians are calling for them to be redrafted completely. Why? Because they continue to push dairy and meat despite their known links to health problems!

Dietitian Susan Levin, MS, RD, CSSD, and "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll explore how the very guidelines that should improve your health instead may put you at risk for heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and other health problems. Susan also reveals the healthier guidelines developed by the Physicians Committee.

They also discuss:

  • The racial bias of the Dietary Guidelines that puts the Black community at risk.
  • The USDA's decision to ignore scientific recommendations for reducing alcohol and sugar consumption.
  • First-time recommendations for children under 2 years old.
  • How plant-based diets factor into the new guidelines.
