There are so many opinions on this subject, and it can be very confusing. Many DC members express informed opinions that are backed by experts. It can be so unhealthy and even downright dangerous to take advice that is not scientifically backed, when it comes to diet. To add to the confusion, there is also much controversial info that originates from experts. I would like to focus on what you believe is a healthy diet and and why. Maybe we can clear up some of the misconceptions out there. What do you believe makes for a healthy diet?
Below is a paragragh taken from a link that I thought might be helpful.
"The Best Diets for Healthy Eating and Best Diets Overall rankings overlap significantly. Both give especially high marks to DASH, TLC, Mediterranean, Mayo Clinic, and Volumetrics. "The ones that get high scores in safety and in nutritional value—they're very similar to each other," says Andrea Giancoli, a registered dietitian who serves on U.S. News's expert panel. The recurring theme across the diets that excelled in healthiness is adequate calories supplied by a heavy load of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, a modest amount of lean protein, nonfat dairy, healthy fats, and an occasional treat. Plants are the foundation and the menu is always built around minimally processed meals made from scratch."
