Of all of the “diets” out there, I lean towards this style of eating the most. This article does a good job of giving an overview of main points of the diet as well as some facts on health benefits (Lowering cholesterol, blood pressure etc…) but also shares findings of a clinical trail that suggest the diet may add years to our lives. If you are unfamiliar with this way of eating, try various elements before diving in all at once, see if it’s something that you can transition to.
