As I’ve mentioned before, several times, and will continue to do so, there is no one diet that works for everyone.
So, what does work?
Well, whether you’ve dabbled in Paleo, Whole 30, Keto, South Bean, Vegan, Vegetarian, Lacto-ovo-vegetarian, Carnivore, Omnivore, Flexitarian, Breatharian, or Kardasharain, a few basic principles hold true across all diets that help segments of people achieve good health.
(With the possible exception of Breatharian.)
Those principles include:
- Eating whole, unprocessed foods
- Preparing foods traditionally, using slow methods such as soaking, sprouting, or fermentation
- Eating the whole animal (if/when you choose eat animals)
- Eating foods that are sustainably farmed (and, hopefully, richer in nutrients because of it)
- Drinking water
- Eating the rainbow
- Eating seasonally
Outside of food, add in being physically active, resting, and good relationships with friends & family.
If you just did all of that, you’d be pretty damned healthy.
