WHOLE-FOOD PLANT-BASED NUTRITION
WHAT IS WFPB?
Two-thirds of Americans alive today will die of cancer or heart disease, and many of these deaths will be related to diet. Our mission is to share insights to help you take control of your life through nutrition. The whole food, plant-based lifestyle features simple guidelines grounded in science.
EAT whole plants such as grains, nuts, and fruit
Studies have shown that populations with mostly plant-based diets have longer lifespans.
AVOID animal products such as meat, fish, and dairy
Populations that eat mostly animal products have higher rates of chronic disease.
AVOID processed, artificial foods
These foods can be high in sugar, sodium, trans fats, and preservatives, and are stripped of original nutrients.
AVOID added fats and sugars
Rich, fatty food and sweets offer no nutrients and create addiction-like cravings.
