Those guidelines, however, have too much carbohydrate for people who's bodies have difficulty processing sugar (all carbohydrate breaks down into sugar in the body). Many of these people are insulin resistant, diabetic, or somewhere along what I call the "road to diabetes."
The pyramid presented here is not meant to give precise advice to anyone, but merely to be an illustrated eating guide for those whose bodies do better with less carbohydrate. It's meant to be a rough guideline as to the amounts of the different foods by volume, rather than by percent of calories.
