The right balance of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates
Fad diets tend to demonize one nutrient in favor of others. Advice from fad diet proponents goes in cycles: for a while they say fats are bad, then they say carbohydrates are bad. Eat a high protein diet. No, eat a low protein diet.
These approaches usually ignore that all fats are not the same, all carbohydrates are not the same, and all proteins are not the same.
A diet based on high-quality whole foods, emphasizing plant-based foods, provides a balance of nutrients and a rich source of important phytonutrients.
