Here is the 2018 edition for the Scientific Approach to Nutrition. This an annual review of hundreds of studies each year to bring you a comprehensive look at the evidence around healthy eating and how we can reduce our risk for heart disease, diabetes, and cancer through food. Despite all the studies that came out this year, the message remains the same: “eat food, not too much, mostly plants”. This is the quote from Michael Pollan that has continued to hold true as I dig deeper and deeper into the research.
Welcome to SELFPrinciple.org. I am a practicing nephrologist and obesity medicine specialist. I created this blog to provide evidence-based nutrition, health, and wellness research. My goal is to share all the wonderful research out there in a simple, easy to understand, manner. Living a full life should not be complicated. Simply sleep more, move more, love more and eat a plant-based diet. Thanks for visiting!
