You are what you eat

Dietary habits have seen vociferous debates between advocates for and against diet plans. The Atkins Diet that held sway in the US In the early 70s was revolutionary at that time. It did not restrict the overall calorie intake and allowed eating meats, sea food and dairy products but severely restricted eating carbohydrates.
In 2004, almost half the US population, in a desperate bid to reduce weight and control obesity, was either on a low-carb diet or was planning to start. It generated its share of controversy, for and against a low-carb diet, that led to a great deal of research to establish the benefits of these diets. In contrast to the low-carb diet plans, studies such as the China Study placed strict restrictions on animal protein foods and advocated plant based protein foods and placed no restrictions on carbohydrates other than refined of simple carbohydrates. This is the view most nutritionists hold today.
Thomas Colin Campbell, an American biochemist who specializes in the effect of nutrition on long-term health, is known for his advocacy of a low-fat, whole foods, plant-based diet. He is the author of over 300 research papers and three books, The China Study co-authored with his son, is one of America’s best-selling books about nutrition. Campbell was a lead scientists of the China–Cornell–Oxford Project on diet and disease, set up in 1983 by Cornell University, the University of Oxford, and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine to explore the relationship between nutrition and cancer, heart, and metabolic diseases. The study was described by The New York Times as “the Grand Prix of epidemiology”.
The findings from the China Study indicates that the lower the percentage of animal-based foods that are consumed, the greater the health benefits. Thomas Campbell said, “Great food and good health is simple. The biology of the relationship of food and health is exceptionally complex but the message is simple. Eat a whole food, plant based diet while minimizing the consumption of refined foods, added salt and added fats.” (The China Study)
