Scientific Principles of Superior Nutrition
What is the healthiest way to eat? Can superior nutrition enable us to reverse chronic disease and avoid dementia and cancer in later life? What are the most powerful foods to include in one’s diet to prevent cancer?
A Nutritarian diet-style incorporates the latest advances in nutritional science to empower you to reach your ideal weight and prevent and reverse chronic diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, auto-immune diseases, migraines and even early stages of many cancers.
I coined the term “Nutritarian” to describe a diet-style that is nutrient-dense and plant-rich (NDPR) and includes a full portfolio of anti-cancer super-foods. The inclusion and balance of these foods supply the optimal amount and variety of micronutrients (vitamins, phytochemicals and minerals) that unleashes the body’s incredible power to heal itself and slow the aging process, giving the body renewed vitality.
My approach to nutrition is based on his health equation: Health = Nutrients per Calorie, or H=N/C. Simply stated, your long-term Health is predicted by the Nutrient density of your diet, specifically the quantity and diversity of micronutrients per Calorie of the foods you eat. The more micronutrient dense your overall food intake, with the inclusion of a wide variety of protective plant-derived phytochemicals, the better your health outcome and longevity potential will be.
