The government is expected to finalize its new dietary guidelines in December. The current draft recommends Americans get roughly half their calories from carbohydrates. The "low-carb" movement, which includes many in the plant-based foods industry as well as coalitions of doctors, academics, advocates and consumers, think that is a bad idea that will prolong America's high rates of obesity and diabetes. Opponents of the "low-carb" approach say it is an oversimplification that fails to acknowledge the role that good carbs (from certain fruits, vegetables and whole grains) play in a healthy diet, as opposed to bad carbs (from certain highly processed foods and some sodas). At the moment, the federal advisory committee appears to be sticking to its earlier recommendation. The only thing that is certain is that once the guidelines come out, one of these groups will likely be unhappy.
