I used to be a food extremist, and in a few ways, some may still label me as such, but I rely heavily on science to back up my choices. I’ve done almost every fad diet, nutrition plan and way of eating over the last 30 years of my life, so I’ve been there, eaten that!
As I promised last week, there are several arguments that support my decision to not be a food extremist – this week I will detail the first four reasons supported by science on why humans should eat a balanced diet and why we need more than just plants as nutrition.
In order to not overwhelm my faithful followers, and to allow you time to focus and think about each one, I have broken this blog into 3 essential parts. Here are the final “arguments” and an important personal story with science-based reasons for not maintaining an extreme diet and finding balance in a variety of healthy foods.
