All about Diet

Mankind fills no container worse than he fills his stomach.

In the past most illness was mostly the result of a lack, such as warmth, food etc. Now it is mostly due to excess and in particular excess of the wrong food or food in general.

Plant-Based Diets

Plant-based diets are comprised of meals made predominately from a variety of vegetables, fruits, grains, beans, and nuts, with minimal amounts of processed foods. Many professional organizations recommend a plant-based diet to help prevent chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and obesity. This is because such a diet is usually high in fiber and low in fat.

A plant-based diet emphasizes vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whole grains. These foods are good sources of protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins, and minerals. They are also naturally lower in calories than foods made from animals. Colorful plant foods are also good sources of phytochemicals. Phytochemicals are naturally present in plant foods, and they can help to protect our body's cells from damage by cancer-causing agents. They also help support overall health. Eating a plant-based diet does not mean that you have to become a vegetarian; it just means that you should try to select most of your foods from plant sources.

The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) recommends these guidelines for adopting a plant-based diet using their New American Plate:

  • Plant-based foods like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and beans should cover two thirds or more of the plate. Fish, poultry, meat, or low-fat dairy foods should cover no more than one third of the plate.
  • Include substantial portions of one or more vegetables or fruits on your plate-not just grain products like pasta or whole-grain bread.
  • Eat five or more servings every day of a variety of colorful vegetables and fruits.
  • Eat more than seven servings a day of a variety of grains (breads, cereals, pasta, and rice), legumes, and tubers (potatoes and sweet potatoes).
  • Choose minimally processed foods and limit consumption of refined sugar.
