Just a few short years ago, after going plant powered and experiencing amazing results I thought what I was doing was THE WAY. I had experienced amazing results myself, seen them in family members, done thorough research and read testimonial after testimonial online.
Now I have learned, from meeting different people and researching in different directions, that there are more than one path. ONE thing that is consistent is EATING REAL FOOD.
Meaning, stay away from processed, genetically modified, sugar laden, poison "food" and get into organic whole foods. Foods that aren't highly processed (or not processed at all).
Some bodies do better on high fat, others on low fat, some on no grains, some on high starch, some raw vegan, some paleo, some vegan, some macrobiotic. Find out whatever feels best for you, and do it.
A great tool is this food list made by "The Raw Foods World" (completely vegan raw food eating family/ health food pioneers and business owners~an aside, they sell the best organic maca) who talk about how you can still have good health eating cooked food, and even meat! Here is their comprehensive list, that can easily be brought to the grocery store as a new shopping list:
