The Natural Eating technique of HumanaNatura’s Personal Health Program and our companion OurPlate dietary model utilize twenty nutritional guidelines. Below, we provide a brief summary of all twenty guidelines.
HN Natural Eating: For Omnivores & Vegetarians, With Or Without Carbs
Overall, the guidelines distill our Personal Health Program’s survey of historical and contemporary dietary science, and seek to both summarize and encourage optimal modern eating patterns – notably including but extending beyond ketogenic eating.
You can explore any or all of the Natural Eating guidelines and the science behind them in practice at OurPlate and more deeply via HumanaNatura’s Personal Health Program. But the following summary should give you a good preliminary sense of our twenty important and far-reaching proposals for optimal modern nutrition:
1. Raw Foods – recognize raw-edibility as a sign of food naturalness
2. Healthy Cooking – use cooking to increase food taste and nutrition
3. Proteins – ensure adequate but not excessive natural proteins
4. Fats & Oils – emphasize fish and other foods rich in Omega-3 fats and oils
5. Carbohydrates – avoid all sugary foods and have clear carbohydrate goals
6. Greens & Vegetables – should be at least half of our food intake by volume
7. Natural Animal Foods – wild-caught, free-range, and grass-fed are healthier
8. Dairy Products – use attentively within your personal fat and carb goals
9. Sweet Fruits & Cooked Starches – use or avoid, depending on your carb goals
10. Grains, Cereals, Legumes & Beans – ecologically and personally unhealthy
11. Processed Foods – avoid these foods in nearly all their forms
12. Food Allergies, Intolerances & Aversions – avoid these foods as well
