From the Whole Life Challenge blog, What You Should Eat

For many people, for many reasons (both known and unknown to them), a certain diet just calls to them. Maybe it feels ethical, maybe it feels clean, maybe all their friends are doing it and all their friends are healthy as all get out. That’s not really the important thing. What matters is that if you are the kind of person who is willing to clean up their act when it comes to the foods they put in their mouth, you’re the kind of person who stands head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to health outcomes. You’re weighing actions against outcomes.

That doesn’t mean that once you’ve made a choice and stuck with it for a while you won’t discover there is an even better choice for you for very specific results-based physiological (or psychological) reasons. You may discover even after you’ve cleaned out most SAD [Standard American Diet] components that you are allergic to eggs or soy or tomatoes. You might find that you need to cut out late-evening eating. You might find out that you need more protein or calories or fiber. But you’re likely never going to see that against the backdrop of ice cream and donuts on the regular.

I’ve said for a long time that it really bums me out that very health-minded people who want the best for their health and the health of the people on this planet argue with each other over specifics like these when there are much better things for us to turn our attention towards. Wouldn’t it be something if the vegans and the keto dieters of the world united against the processed food industry and the sway it holds over the average person? Rather than disagree with each other?

Bottom line—eat like a healthy person.
