No, but I do recommend a dietary pattern that is predominantly whole-foods plant-based (> 85%) as this has been shown to be optimal for sustaining human (and planetary) health. For example, in 2019 the EAT-Lancet commission gathered 37 scientists from 16 countries who came up with the “Planetary Health Plate”, a dietary pattern in which at least 87% of all calories derive from healthy whole-food plant sources. If this dietary pattern were to be adopted at a planetary scale, the report predicted that more than 11 million lives could be saved every year from diet-driven preventable chronic diseases. My program initially focuses on crowding out unhealthy foods by simply increasing the consumption of these more healthful plant-food sources and drinking plenty of water! Then and in conjunction with the client it would be decided how far to go on the plant-based spectrum.
