Dear Valued Client,

If you missed Bonnie commenting on the USDA's new food symbol, MyPlate, here is the segment that aired on WLS-TV Chicago.

Have a happy, healthy week. Bonnie and Steve Minsky.

Bonnie on MyPlate.

In general, MyPlate is an improvement over MyPyramid. There is, however, one glaring omission: healthy fats. One cannot exist optimally without healthy fats. In a perfect world, the USDA should have cut down on the portion of grains and added a section for healthy oils. This was a huge misstep. Hopefully, they will put this in the next version.


Furthermore, there was no need for the dairy section that lies outside of the plate. It is evident that this is meant to be your glass of milk. This section should have said water.


The devil will be in the details with regards to how MyPlate will be taught. There is a lot of room for interpretation. Of course, I still prefer my version, The Circle of Health, but as you can see, the USDA is getting closer and closer to my way of thinking. Kudos to the First Lady and Secretary Vilsack.

MyPlate vs. The Circle of Health: Which is Better?

Chicagoans React to New MyPlate Food Guide (ABC-TV).

Dr. Schuster's Well Tips - June
drliloschuster Unique Pregnancy Technique.
My name is Dr. Liselotte Schuster. I have worked with Bonnie Minsky at Nutritional Concepts for over twenty years. Each month, I offer wellness tips from a Chiropractor's perspective. Feel free to email me topics to consider for future segments.

This month, I demonstrate pregnancy pillows that I use during a visit.  They allow women to lay face down so that I amy access and adjust their spine, hips, pelvis and other skeletal structures for proper alignment of the baby in utero and to reduce any discomfort the mom's may have.
