The Perfect Diet
It's called the EFFO Diet.
What does EFFO stand for? Eat Fiber Foods Only.
Or do this: Look at what most people eat in developed countries and do the opposite. Ninety percent of food eaten contains no fiber, and ten percent contains fiber. Eat ninety percent fiber and ten percent crap.
Fiber can be found in vegetables, fruits, grains, legumes, nuts and seeds.
Fiber can't be found eating meats, dairy, and processed foods.
Some call me a vegan because I eat no meat or dairy. I call myself EFFO Man.
Eating bad foods is part of our culture. Even when we think we're doing good, we're still doing harm to our bodies. For example, eating a salad--the salad is good, but after the dairy/oil based dressing is applied, the harm benefits outweigh the health benefits. Same goes for a baked potato. After the butter and sour cream is applied, it also becomes more detrimental than beneficial. And drinking that diet coke is not going to make you any healthier.
Think EFFO. And SSS--soups, salads and shakes. It becomes an enjoyable way to partake of the most healthy diet on the planet.
What makes it a healthy diet? Lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol/LDL, lower A1c, and lower HSCRP. And a lower body weight isn't a bad marker either. These are the true measures of health and they are easily quantifiable.
