New public health initiative touts low-fat, whole food, plant-based diet as best way to prevent chronic disease
HOLLYWOOD, Fla., May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Being naked doesn't only suggest a lack of clothing any longer. Naked Food Magazine today released its latest initiative, which proposes going back to basics and consuming a low-fat, whole food, plant-based diet as the best road to prevention and reversal of disease. The initiative educates readers on ways to avoid toxins, chemicals, animal protein, saturated fat, processed, and genetically modified foods.
"Seven out of the ten leading causes of death in our country are strongly linked to diet and nutrition. These include heart disease, cancer, stroke, Alzheimer's, and diabetes. Our food choices have a dramatic impact in the prevention and development of these diseases," says Margarita Restrepo, founder and editor-in-chief of Naked Food Magazine. "Following a naked diet based on vegetables, fruit, legumes, grains, nuts and seeds happens to be a natural way to prevent and even reverse diseases such as cancer, restore heart health and achieve permanent weight loss, among other benefits."
Research has consistently found that animal based protein such as meat, eggs, and dairy, on the contrary, promotes weight gain, alters the mix of hormones and modifies important enzyme activities. It also causes inflammation and cell proliferation, and it creates an acidic atmosphere in the body which is an ideal environment for cancer to thrive. According to Restrepo, "Asking people to achieve perfect health and lose weight while still consuming animal based foods is not only misinforming them, it's also a recipe for disease as well."
Naked Food Magazine is a one-stop source for evidence-based nutrition, delicious naked recipes and advice from leading industry experts. "There is no magic pill, product or fad diet to sell here. We don't have any financial or political bias either. Our goal is to educate and encourage individuals to take control of their own health by acquiring healthier eating habits and knowing the truth behind the food they eat," says Restrepo.
