Does Canada's Food Guide Promote Weight Gain?
Part 7 of 7
With growing concern over the prevalence of obesity across Canada and North America, the Canadian Obesity Network set out to determine what role Canada's Food Guide may play in weight gain by hosting a debate between outspoken critic and popular blogger/author Dr. Yoni Freedhoff and Canada's Director General of Nutrition Policy, Dr. Hasan Hutchinson.
Both doctors were enthusiastic in their desire to present their side of the argument with Dr. Yoni arguing that Canada's Food Guide does in fact promote weight gain and Dr. Hasan defending the use and relevance of the guide created and promoted from his branch of government within Health Canada.
