Jay Leno is the latest person to rip on MyPyramid.gov, first by saying sarcastically that the last food pyramid, issued in 1992, "obviously did America a lot of good." He then said the result is that "Many Americans now look like pyramids: narrow at the top and wide at the bottom."
Mark Hurst from ThisIsBroken.com, a leading site pointing out things that are "broken", concludes that MyPyramid.gov is "broken". He says that asking everyone to go through an interactive exercise is a bit much.
The USDA released new dietary guidelines via MyPyramid.gov. The idea is that they now have 12 different pyramids, supposedly something for everyone. My initial perception is that this will be too confusing. Upon visiting their site, they offer customized plans, but the site was so busy today that it wouldn't allow me to access that feature.
