What is the healthiest diet?

01 Feb 2020

Find out what the latest science is saying about your favourite foods to help you make the healthiest choices for you and your family.

Dr Michael Gregor in his book How Not to Die, centres his recommendations around a Daily Dozen checklist of all the things I try to fit into my daily routine.

 Daily Dozen Foods : Beans (Legumes), Berries, Other Fruits, Flaxseeds, Nuts, Spices, Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, Leafy greens (especially dark varieties), Other vegetables, Whole Grains, Beverages (particularly water), Exercise. 

Dr Greger’s Daily Dozen is based upon the best available evidence for improving the nutrient density of your meals. It is not a meal plan or a diet, but a check list to guide us in selecting the healthiest of healthy foods to form our diet. It is designed to be an aspirational minimum for the average person. Athletes, growing adolescents, pregnant and nursing women may need to add more foods to their daily dozen. Check out NutritionFacts.org for a video on the “Daily Dozen Checklist”
