The only thing these diets have in common is that they're all based on whole foods with minimum processing. Nuts, berries, beans, raw milk, grass-fed meat. Whole, real, unprocessed food is almost always healthy, regardless of how many grams of carbs, protein or fat it contains.

All these healthy diets have in common the fact that they are absent foods with bar codes. They are also extremely low in sugar. In fact, the number of modern or ancient societies known for health and longevity that have consumed a diet high in sugar would be ... let's see ... zero.

Truth be told, what you eat probably matters less than how much processing it's undergone. Real food--whole food with minimal processing--contains a virtual pharmacy of nutrients, phytochemicals, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and healthful fats, and can easily keep you alive and thriving into your 10th decade.

101% agree

Raw real and balance inc animal, conscious flexitarianism....
We could live on dried mongolian yak for years I bet here in NYC...

#1 to me is no chemicals in the food; hormones, in the soil, etc....
So sadly I skip seafood in NYC minus dinners out (and than only higher end Japan/Euro origin), I don't trust many area waters nor water-farming in the USA and abroad....

Personally I skip desserts to make up for the sugars I get in wine (over use), love the raw fruit as the end of the meal treat (or some raw milk cheese)....

Thanks for this post Bill
