Looking for info on the 30/30/30 nutritional guideline
Some people at work have been talking about a 30/30/30 nutritional program that is supposedly 30% carbs (primarily from vegetables and whole grains with no refined starches and only small amounts of naturally occurring sugars), 30% protein (primarily from fish, poultry, eggs, and nuts), and 30% fat (primarily mono and polyunsaturated oils, focusing on Omega 3 and 6 proportions and limited amounts of saturated fats, lots of oily fish, nuts, and expeller pressed/organic olive, canola and nut oils).
The remaining 10% is your "wild card" for less nutritious foods and treats including alcohol, chocolate, and the occasional indulgence.
I Googled it and didn't find anything. Does anyone know where this came from? I found a couple of variations of a 40-30-30 diet, including one on Livestrong. Is this just an attempt to work some junk food into an established plan?
