It also provides further support for HumanaNatura’s Natural Eating recommendations and OurPlate healthy meal guidelines. We would encourage you to learn more about the study’s important findings, which are consistent with other emerging dietary research and have important natural health implications.
Example of HumanaNatura’s OurPlate Approach In Action
In the new study, members of a small group who had previously undergone significant weight loss were placed in random order on each of three 30-day eating plans – 1) a “low-fat” plan comparable to diets widely advocated by a variety of medical organizations and health policy institutes, 2) a “low-carbohydrate” plan comparable to the Atkins Diet, and 3) a “low-glycemic” plan rich in fruits and vegetables and with moderate but healthy fat and protein levels, comparable to the Mediterranean Diet. Although the HumanaNatura approach omits grains and legumes – replacing them with additional vegetables, lean proteins, and fruit – it is similar to the Mediterranean approach in important ways.
