Before we can agree on what constitutes the best diet, let’s agree on some basic ground rules. Only then can we discuss what makes one diet better than another.
Let’s therefore agree that the diet best suited to human health and weight:
- Should not cause metabolic distortions such as insulin resistance or type 2 diabetes or fatty liver
- Should normalize weight
- Should not limit or reduce calories
- Should supply sufficient nutrients without need to supplement missing nutrients
- Should not just be better or less harmful than some other flawed diet for comparison
- Should include plentiful prebiotic fibers
And I would argue that the best human diet contains absolutely no seeds of grasses, i.e., “grains,” nor added sugars.
