Diet crazes come and go, but the science of how to eat healthy hasn’t actually changed that much in recent years.
We hear a lot of conflicting advice on whether the latest diet is better than the last, yet there’s at least one sentence that nutrition experts agree on.
It’s from the scientific report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee:
A healthy dietary pattern is higher in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low- or non-fat dairy, seafood, legumes, and nuts; moderate in alcohol (among adults); lower in red and processed meat; and low in sugar-sweetened foods and drinks and refined grains.
That’s it. Pretty simple, right?
