what could be more nutrient dense than a plant based diet? is this a genuine question? most diets are more nutrient dense than plant based diets. plants are extremely low in nutrient density. that's actually one of the selling points of the vegan diet for weight loss. you can eat forever and still lose weight.

I have been eating plant based for 4 weeks now and I have never felt this good in my life. I'm never going back. It doesn't feel like a diet, I'm not hungry,. I'm not craving sugar and my blood sugar doesn't crash like it used to. Thanks for the great info!

it makes plenty of sense that berries are the healthiest fruits. they're the least changed plants by agriculture practices, so they're the closest thing we have to the plants our ancestors ate.

salt intake was higher in the 19th century, before refrigeration, yet heart disease and other issues tied to high blood pressure didn't come to prevalence until the second half of the 20th century. So, how am I supposed to believe that salt is the reason for high blood pressure, opposed to things like carbs, sugar, and processed foods, which have seen higher consumption in that same time period?

why would anyone eat low-fat dairy? That's so much sugar. Fat-free dairy is pretty much just cutting out the only good part of the dairy.

Laughing at people who eat trail mix is worth while. Granola spikes blood sugar. There's no way that stuff isn't likely to increase cancer risk.

Can you talk about what you mean by "improve" cholesterol? Do you mean reduce? Because my understanding is that grains damage the LDL and makes it so the liver struggles to process it. I think you might be playing it pretty loose with your terminology. But I would love for you to touch on this.

I'm wary of your willingness to your the advantages of broccoli based on a study of a drug derived from broccoli when so much of the rest of broccoli is inflammatory.
