Nutrition

How Not to Die Book contains all the evidence needed to prove that a whole food, plant based diet is the best thing you can do to mitigate diseases and living a healthy life. The author also has a website where he blogs about various things nutrition and health.

Knowing this, I eat whole food, pescatarian diet with a daily morning smoothie I make + supplements after a morning workout.

I minimize the days on which I do eat fish to few times a month as to minimize my contributions to overfishing which is a serious problem.

I try drink only water/tea with occasional coffee. No added sugar in food/drinks. No dairy too. I love exploring new and interesting pescatarian recipes.

Rhonda Patrick's interview, Diet Habits that Built my Physique & What I Eat in a Week are insightful videos.

I try to include a lot of vegetables, nuts and eggs in my diet. Foods rich in probiotics are great for healthy gut microbiome.

Avoid empty calories like flour and sugar. Fruit sugar is okay as it does come with some vitamins and fiber.

Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.

Don't eat anything your great grandmother wouldn't recognize as food.

Common foods

I try to eat a lot of protein rich foods as I do daily exercises and generally try to live an active life style without sitting too much.

Foods I try to eat a lot of and make recipes from:

  • Avocados (eat with eggs and/or some whole grain bread)
  • Greek yugurt (with frozen blueberries often)
  • Eggs (omelettes, sometimes boiled too)
  • Greek salad
  • Soups (fish/vegetable soups are great, also garlic soup)
