What is a whole-foods, plant-based diet?
• Whole food describes natural foods that are not heavily processed. That means whole, unrefined, or minimally refined ingredients (excludes refined foods like added sugars, white flour, and processed oils).
•Plant-based means food that comes from plants (vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, seeds, and nuts) and doesn’t contain animal ingredients such as meat, milk, eggs, or honey.
"There’s excellent scientific evidence that many chronic diseases can be controlled, reduced, or even reversed by moving to a whole-food, plant-based diet. Scientific research highlighted in the landmark book The China Study shows that a plant-based diet can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, certain types of cancer, and other major illnesses. Many people also report bigger fitness payoffs, more energy, reduced inflammation, and better health outcomes after making the switch." - Forks Over Knives.
