In the next 20 years over 50% of Americans will be diabetic and 44% will be obese. Many children eat donuts, cookies, cupcakes and candy on a daily basis. Going through the fast food drive in is like getting an aneurysm to go–serious illness will occur as a direct result of the consumption of these foods. Change is critical.
I’m pro any wholefood plant-based diet that excludes unclean meat, sugar, processed foods, and GMOs. Heart of Wisdom is the publisher of Hope Egan’s excellent books. I also read books and listen to podcast by several authors.
Here is a list you can bookmark and access all the best nutrition information in one place. To get the most out of these, read the books while you petal on your stationary bike, listen to podcast on your daily walk.

How I Feel About Meat
There is nothing wrong with eating meat (clean meat not pork). There are serious health problems from eating meat from animals raised artificially (jammed in cages, fed unnatural food, pumped full of growth hormones, and antibiotics). Meat should be less than 10% of your diet and organic. See The China Study.
Dr Fuhrman’s Food Prymid
Dr. Fuhrman’s Nutritarian food pyramid is based on the principles of high nutrient eating as illustrated by his Health Equation: Health = Nutrients / Calories (H = N / C). Low-calorie, nutrient dense foods are at the base of the pyramid, and high-calorie, nutrient poor foods are at the top. As nutrient density decreases, the quantity of room in the diet decreases.
A Nutritarian diet is a way of eating which bases food choices on maximizing the micronutrients per calorie. Read more here.
