Simple ‘Yes & No’ list made famous by Dr. Steven Gundry, author of The Longevity Paradox and The Plant Paradox. I approve of his list. It is a good general framework by which to remove inflammation from your body. And it works well.

Below I found these wonderful and exhaustive collection of natural products and how they interact with the body from the people over at the Oncology Nursing Forum. I wouldn’t even dare to improve on these lists much like Dr. Gundry’s above.

  • Adults should get 45 percent to 65 percent of their calories from carbohydrates, 20 percent to 35 percent from fat, and 10 to 35 percent from protein. Acceptable ranges for children are similar to those for adults, except that infants and younger children need a slightly higher proportion of fat (25 -40 percent).
  • Added sugars should comprise no more than 25 percent of total calories consumed.
  • The recommended intake for total fiber for adults 50 years and younger is set at 38 grams for men and 25 grams for women, while for men and women over 50 it is 30 and 21 grams per day, respectively, due to decreased food consumption.
  • Using new data, the report reaffirms previously established recommended levels of protein intake, which is 0.8 grams per kilogram of body weight for adults; however recommended levels for pregnancy are increased.
