Some excerpts from this article by Jonny Bowden, author and nutritionist.

What is the best diet for human beings?…There is no perfect diet for human beings. At least not one that’s based on how much protein, fat or carbohydrates you eat. The only thing various healthy diets from all over the world have in common is that they’re all based on whole foods with minimum processing. Nuts, berries, beans, raw milk, grass-fed meat, wild salmon, eggs, apples, tea, and vegetables, but especially onions/garlic and broccoli/cabbage/brussel sprouts.

Whole, real, unprocessed food is almost always healthy, regardless of how many grams of carbs, protein or fat it contains. And these choice foods are also extremely low in sugar. In fact, the number of modern or ancient societies known for health and longevity that have consumed a diet high in sugar would be … let’s see … zero.

Can’t say I agree with everything he says—I have been avoiding those foods with high cholesterol, like egg yolks and milk. But I’d love to eat less sugar. That is practically a poison that most of us are addicted to from birth, when it is dumped into baby food. But the rest of the list is a regular part of my diet. How about yours?
