The Ideal Human Diet, In 66 Words

From T. Colin Campbell's new book, "Whole: Rethinking The Science Of Nutrition"
"The ideal human diet looks like this: Consume plant-based foods in forms as close to their natural state as possible ("whole" foods). Eat a variety of vegetables, fruits, raw nuts and seeds, beans and legumes, and whole grains. Avoid heavily processed foods and animal products. Stay away from added salt, oil, and sugar. Aim to get 80% of your calories from carbohydrates, 10% from fat, and 10% from protein.

That's it, in 66 words. In this book I call it the whole-food, plant-based (WFPB) diet."
