Why the food pyramid failed?

Metabolic starvation in the obese

It is the paradoxical metabolic starvation that happens in the obese due to insulin resistance with a compensatory increase in the anabolic hormone called insulin that drives weight gain, hunger and metabolic starvation leading to food cravings, and weight gain!

Weight loss tip 9 - Start the day right

Starting the day right with a protein based breakfast will reduce the commonly seen sugar rush and crash associated with starchy breakfast items, and as protein lasts longer, you feel fuller for longer. Starting the day with eggs in various forms can be a great way to start the day - the cholesterol in the eggs is not a major concern as eggs have beneficial lecithin that can mitigate the effects of cholesterol.
