Ten personal eating principles

1. Eat enough food to meet your daily energy (calorie) levels
2. Increase your daily intake of unrefined carbohydrates so that they provide 60 per cent or more of your daily calorie needs
3. Adjust your daily intake of fats and oils (most of which should be polyunsaturated) so that they provide 30 per cent or less of your daily calorie needs.
4. Adjust your daily intake of protein (whether from plant foods, animal foods, or a combination of the two) to provide about 10 per cent of your daily calorie needs
5. Increase your daily fibre intake.


6. Reduce your refined sugar, salt and caffeine intakes to a minimum possible level.
7. Try to choose fresh food grown on healthy soil, with a minimum of chemical contamination, and eat your food as close as possible to its original state (raw, wherever possible and palatable).
8. Eat only when you are hungry, chew your food well and don't eat more than you need to feel satisfied.
9. Drink when you are thirsty - and preferably pure water.
10. Allow proper time and space for eating and for enjoying what you eat.
