The (Weight-Related) Case For Diversifying Your Diet. by Jodi Helmer. September 8, 2019. No Comments. If you refuse to try quinoa, recoil at the texture of tomatoes — or, gasp, avocados — and insist that certain foods never touch on the plate, you might be a picky eater — and you are not alone.

It’s no mystery that a subpar diet can lead to obesity, type 2 diabetes, and a variety of gastrointestinal issues, but a new study suggests that it’s primarily a lack of diversity in our diet that may be driving this trend. The solution: Shake up your menu. Case Studies.

Case Study 1 Traditional foods of the Pacific. Case Study 2 Home gardens and neglected species for food security in Nepal. Case Study 3 Diversity of indigenous fruit trees in sub-Saharan Africa. Case Study 4 Fish diversity and consumption in Bangladesh. Case Study 5 Orange-fleshed sweet potato in Mozambican diets.

Diversify your diet with Chris Masterjohn. October 15, But did you know that it’s a good idea to diversify our diets, as well? Today, Chris Masterjohn makes a strong case for why it’s critical to do so for optimal health. Chris is a health expert and educator, with a PhD in Nutritional Sciences from the University of Connecticut. The (Weight-Related) Case For Diversifying Your Diet: Courtesy of Jodi Helmer on My Fitness Pal. Would you describe yourself as a picky eater?

Maybe you eat the same types of foods each week. While this isn’t necessarily a horrible thing, Jodi makes the case why you should diversify your diet in this article. 4. Could Your Diet Use a Little More Diversity? June 11, 2013 It goes without saying that a varied diet—one that includes all food groups—is key for proper nutrition and lifelong health.

Dietary diversification interventions are interventions that change food consumption at the household level, such as increasing the consumption of animal-source foods (Gibson and Anderson 2009; Gibson, Perlas, and Hotz 2006). Recently, the potential for measures of diet diversity to help identify food insecure households has received growing attention from operational agencies. This interest is founded on the observed relationship between income and diet diversification and is fuelled by the ease and low-cost of collecting and using dietary diversity indices.

Agricultural biodiversity is important for food and nutritional security, as a safeguard against hunger, a source of nutrients for improved dietary diversity and quality, and strengthening local food systems and environmental sustainability. Strategies for food and dietary diversification at the community and household levels include a range of food-based activities that can maximize the availability of adequate amounts and greater variety of nutritious foods.

List of related literature:

These recommendations include engaging in regular physical exercise; eating appropriately sized portions of food; moderating the intake of fat (to reduce the energy density of the diet); restricting the intake of saturated and trans fats; and eating an abundant amount of whole grains, vegetables, and fruits (Box 15-1).

  • I was able to give up animal products overnight, but I too believe i am a food addict and I still have trouble with all of the unhealthy, though vegan, food that’s out there. Or just eating too many peanuts or not enough vegetables or still too much candy because it’s made with coconut milk instead of dairy milk. And it’s a struggle. I just can’t seem to kick it. I’ll do okay for a little while and I’ll think that I’m doing really good until all of a sudden I’m not. And I don’t get a sharp pain in my stomach when I eat it. I can’t seem to get off of it long enough to maybe have that effect. I feel like I need to go into a hospital and not be allowed to have it or get it anywhere near me for like 3 months. But who can do that? Right? You know we got jobs and mortgages etc

  • It’s so good to see you Gianna! I love this interview. I’m a big fan of Dr. Lisle and that’s how I found this. I’m a long time vegan and looking forward to watching more of your interviews with my heros! God bless and congratulations for all that you are doing in the wellness area and all of your other endeavors xo

  • For asians, normal bmi is probably closer to 18 to 22. For people from india and pakistan, probably better to stay closer to bmi 19.

  • People think that carbs mean processed food, but that is not the case. A calorie is still a calorie but one food is not the other. This stupid idea that a unit of measure is not the same based a circumstances is just moronic. Wholefoods are the way to life better and healthier, nothing beats that.

  • Dr. Gil can you cover omega 3’s/6s/7s/9s in a future video? I’m vegetarian but still take fish oil because the science appears to be quite definitive on it for health benefits (lowers triglyceride levels and inflammation and cortisol, elevates mood, heals brain and burn injuries faster than usual, though verdict still out on CVD). There are so many acronyms that it makes my head spin. For example, the supplement I take has omega 3s DHA, EPA, DPA, ALA, SDA in it plus omega 6 GLA (is this healthy?). Then my kid’s organic fish oil also has omega 9 Oleic acid and omega 7 palmitoleic acid on top of the regular 3s DHA/EPA. Are all of these scientifically backed and should vegans/vegetarians be 100% supplementing with these from an animal (eg fish) or plant (eg algae)? I know in previous videos you’ve slammed salmon for its saturated fat levels but are omega 3s a big part of that saturated fat? Help!

  • Can easily lose weight and or be healthy by eating unrefined foods with low calorie density. If reducing or eliminating animal products, can take b12 supplement. Very low calorie density: vegetables, fresh fruits (not dried, not juice), non fat dairy. Fiber needs water to work so consume plenty of soups. Low calorie density: winter squash (like pumpkin), sweet potato, potato, taro, yam, oat groats, wheat grains, barley, millet, beans, peas, lentils, anchovies, sardines, egg whites. Medium calorie density: brown rice, red rice, black rice, whole grain bread, whole grain noodles, whole grain pasta, pork, chicken, eggs. High calorie density: nuts, seeds (like pumpkin seeds, hemp seed, sesame seed), oil, sweeteners, refined flour, bacon, cheese, butter, margarine. To get enough calories have to eat enough cheap staple foods like tubers, whole grains and or winter squash.
    To avoid deficiencies, unrefined vegans do need to know which foods are good sources of vitamin d (usually sunshine and or supplement), iodine (seaweeds like nori and wakame), epa/dha (flax seed powder, chia seed, and or supplement), vitamin b2, calcium, iron, zinc, etc. There are brands of mushrooms with vitamin d (they shine uvb light on the mushrooms).

  • I have a bit of a problem with how superficially you dealt with some of this.
    Let’s look at how the human body is supposed to access food. It evolved over many millennia, from a “hunter gatherer” environment. Humans ate when they could, and what energy they did not need in the moment was stored as reserve energy, i.e. fat, which their bodies could burn for fuel when food sources were scarce. All foods were natural, truly natural, hunted, grown, picked, etc. I do not think there is any scientific debate about how the body stores food as fat, and retrieves it for fuel. Once the human body uses up the glycogen stores, it goes to its stored fat for energy.

    Fast forward to the 20th Century and beyond.

    So what has screwed up this whole process is the relatively sudden availability of abundant food and especially highly refined carbohydrate food products filled with sugar, which throw a giant monkey wrench in the bodies metabolic works. It is simply not normal to eat 16 hours a day, every day, stuffing our faces with “foods” which have basically been invented to make us even more hungry and play havoc with our bodies, especially sugar and high fructose corn syrup.

    Before the 1900’s, obesity, diabetes, heart disease and other metabolic ailments barely existed in society on a relative basis. The very best diets are those that provide food for the body in the way it was meant to function. We only need about a tsp of sugar in our entire blood stream to function and they key to weight loss, weight gain, hunger, etc IMHO is controlling our blood sugar. Fats cause no rise in blood sugar when ingested, protein very little, which leaves a wide array of carbohydrates (unnecessary for human life, BTW) which have a very wide range of glycemic effect. So a more accurate statement would be to say it is the control of the “quality” of carbohydrates, not simply carbohydrates per se. The effects of eating several ounces of turnip greens is wildly different from eating several ounces of high fructose corn syrup.

    I don’t think it can be disputed scientifically that controlling blood sugar is the bottom line key to weight and metabolic health, and some methods are much, much better at doing this than others.

  • Thanks for always being clear and focus on finding what works for you instead of generalizing. Love it. Also, love your alter ego jumping in and wanting the TIPs right away, and then summarizing them:-D

  • I work as a model and personal trainer so on occasion i have to get lean. it isnt fun but it can actually be enjoyable and rewarding i dont go low fat or low carb. Its about getting enough protein, plenty of fibre (fruit, mainly apples berries and grapes/melon, making half your plate veggies like broccoli and romaine) training but not over training, laying off the processed foods (although the odd spoon of nutella or a tub of halo top 300cal ice cream is ok and can make it more enjoyable) and i dont count every calorie. I just am mindful lots of veggies, lower calorie fruit, protein (tofu, lentils, vegetable protein) and drink plenty of water! ��

  • I’ve been on armor thyroid for 20 years so I went vegan and started taking guggul, coleus and aloe and after 3 months my dosage of thyroid medication had to be reduced by 25 percent so I am going to continue on this plan and see what happens.

  • Just finished reading Fiber Fueled by dr Will Bulsiewicz. According to him the microbiome plays a huge role in this. (Weight loss) Really interesting research coming out on the microbiome. Post biotics (short chain fatty acids) for the win on so many levels! And plant diversity…. (You mentioned this in the video as well) Would be really interested on your take about the microbiome. But can highly recommend reading Fiber Fueled.

  • I like your channel, I’ve been following you since a week. This ebook could be very helpfull too on abs workout and fat burning, it has helped many people and I hope it will be usefull to many more persons ���� Keep on posting your interesting videos. Thank you…

  • If you look at all successful weight loss, the #1 reason they succeed is not what type of food it is, not what “program” they joined. It ultimately was because they were 100% consistent, because they could do it for life. Since most diets are contrary to our lizard brain nature, they will fail most of us and the data clearly shows this. I love when people say “just cut out “processed” foods” and all is well. The truth is, most people LOVE processed foods because it hits those places that not only satisfy our lizard brain and reward center, it still has nutrition and obvious calories our bodies use. Considering how fat America is, what is worse? Eating “processed” food if it helps lose weight and saves your life OR temporarily eating food we hate or don’t naturally enjoy to lose weight for a few weeks, only to quit and gain it back?

  • Any chance you can explain how carbs become fat, shouldn’t there be an energy loss during the conversion? It’s just really confusing and it makes no sense that body just real quick turns carbs into fat.

  • Thank you for this video. It is one of the best I came across so far not because it mentions things you cannot find elsewhere but because it does it concisely and conclusively, staying short, sweet and funny. I for one am ssoooooo tired of that “carbs are the devil and insulin is your doom” nonsense…

  • Thank you both! I love the beautiful truths that you speak, and your desire to help others, as you both have been helped! PCRM YAY!

  • I know this is a hugely different question on conditions any advice is greatly appreciated, is axenfield rigers syndrome including dental resorbtion because of autoimmune condition curable or manageable please?

  • You’re so damn good, keep it up! Clearly delivered, perfect balance of science-based -> viewed through the lens of a normal person. Gave me a good laugh as well��

  • One simple rule to have healthier unrefined diet is from Dr Bill Harris of the vegetarian society of hawaii: if it has no fiber, do not eat it. Fiber needs water to work so do soups. Can eliminate refined substances like oil, sweeteners, juice, refined flour, protein powder, salt, etc. Another class of junk food to reduce or eliminate are animal products (all animal products have 0 fiber) and just take vitamin b12 supplement. China has already told its citizens to reduce animal products by 50% for health and for the environment. About 15% of global warming is caused by livestock.

  • Hey guys my journey to losing 80 lbs in 6 months with bridesmaid weight loss I reviewed the top products for me that worked. Hope this helps

  • Gianna I just discovered you and your channel and all I have to say is that you are amazing!! Best interviews I have ever seen!! Thanks from a fellow vegan!!

  • I’m very disappointed that this video does not first make the distinction between Type II Diabetes and Type I Diabetes. This perpetuates the misconception that Type I Diabetes is “reversible” and that Type I Diabetes was caused by lifestyle choices. Both of these are completely untrue. Type I Diabetes afflicts 1 in 600, and the vast majority of these are adolescent children. They did nothing to cause it, and there is absolutely no cure or ability to reverse or lessen the disease. They will be insulin-dependent for the rest of their lives. Period. We need increased funding in stem-cell research and in technology like a closed-loop artificial pancreas.

  • Great show! So glad she touched on families. For mine, the worst sin in their eyes was being fat. You could gamble, drink, smoke, drug it up, or skirt the law all you want, but don’t you dare be fat like I was. I recently saw two of my cousins after 20 years and both of them are weed-smoking alcoholics who live on wings and pizza just like they did as kids. They look like they’re in their 60s instead of their 40s, but gosh, they’re not fat. They have all kinds of health issues, but golly, they’re not fat. They can’t walk up the stairs without coughing and wheezing, but you guessed it, they’re not fat. Meanwhile, I’ve completely overhauled my diet to WFPB, transforming myself into the best shape of my life, but all they could do was call me nicknames because “dudes don’t eat salad.” Imagine what would happen to them if they did…

  • Hi… love your work… agree completely with all you are saying… my question is why not address the issue with processed foods? Real food is only as good as it is sourced… so then with process foods why not discuss how the ingredients damage our cellular metabolism…

  • I came across many videos on “healthy eating”, never heard this being said ((use your muscles so that the body will not break them down for extra energy))!! Very inspiring… Many thanks. ����

  • I must tell you about a person who helped me with Diabetes! He is the only 1, who can grant you a step by step way how to cure it. Just open site DIABETES. XCOURSE. XYZ and watch his amazing story!

  • Happy for Jeanne that it worked. But in my case I have been on my meds for over 30 years…went vegan three years ago, and kept at it for 2 years and my body went “hulk-mode”, gained additional 50 pounds and all organs started to fail. Several ICU moments. So please people….do talk to doctor before changing your life drastically.

  • I am an Indian and we have adopted a lot of western food habits in our culture lately (mainly unhealthy, processed and junk foods) due to which our generation is suffering from a lot of health issues.
    Studies shows that our ancestors lead a healthy life, had the best food habits and it’s slowly gaining popularity.
    -lot of whole foods, whole grains, veggies, pulses, legumes
    -no processed and refined foods
    -healthier alternatives for sugar that is jaggery, dates
    -cook using healthy oil known as GHEE (which is now marketed around the world as ‘clarified butter’)
    -finish last meal of the day before 7pm
    -active lifestyle (as opposed to our sedentary ones)

    These are some simple things that they followed and the same things are being validated by modern science in different studies

  • Important information in this video. Sometimes you feel worse after changing your diet as your body cleanses out stored toxins and people think it’s a sign that they are making a mistake. Have to give the body a chance to heal especially if you have been eating the SAD diet for decades. I’ve got to say she looks radiantly healthy and is a walking testament to what a person can heal with the right food.

  • Love the comment she made ” learned to change my health and my health destiny”! Now she wants to help others change their health destinies! AWESOME! That is what the Whole Food Plant Based way of eating does! Great interview!

  • same here, I was taking euthirox 50 for more than 3 years, before I got better. I think it could be because of my new diet but my endocrinologist told me, that these things happen regullary.

  • Thank you for sharing your story Jeanne, you are very lucky that you caught the thyroid thing early on. I’ve been on meds for 12 years and have learned that the longer someone is on it, the harder it is to get off (thyroid atrophy). I still haven’t given up hope though!

  • But there’s probably not any hope for getting off synthroid after being on it 15 years, and 6 of those years being on a plant-based diet, right?

  • Thank you for going over this! I went over calories in a separate YouTube video, and we are in the middle of a weight loss series on our podcast, The Art of Eating:

    We most recently went over the insulin resistance model too! Funnily enough, we came to a very similar conclusion. It is unfortunate that all “carbs” are lumped in under one umbrella term, because carbs can be great… if you are choosing the right ones��!

    Yet mainstream marketing puts all this flashy advertising together that demonizes all carbs when it is simply untrue.

    Awesome video!

  • I love Jeanne Schumacher, and have really been enjoying her videos, particularly her interviews with Dr Barnard about his new book! I really appreciate what Jeanne brings to the table, especially as she’s been where I am, and come through it to the other side!

  • Hi Gil! Thank you for the continuous quality content!
    However, even after watching this video, I still face the uncertainty if this theory applies to insulin resistant, pre-diabetic or diabetic type II people?
    I present several insulin resistant/pre-diabetic signs, I’m already waiting for the lab results prescribed by my endocrinologist.

    Upon hours of research, there are experts who defend, no matter what is your calorie intake, as long as your insulin is constantly at peak due to carbs consumption, you will not be able to lose fat.
    Is calories in-calories out, with constant and monitored adjustment, still applicable to this group of people?

    In the past, I visited an endocrinologist, she completely overlooked every symptom I listed and put my on an extremely low-fat -carb diet (aprox. 1200 calories). Needless to say the adherence was null.

    I don’t necessarily consume too many carbs, perhaps a sugary drink every other day and rice/pasta but in Portugal we do consume a lot of saturated fat, which I believe to be my trigger (I consume meat, mostly red, on average, 2 times a day).

    Anyways, hopefully, you are able to answer my questions, if not, I will still watch all your upcoming videos ahah.
    Thank you and good luck!

  • There are claims that fructose is processed by the liver which is not a good thing hence why keto enthusiasts do not consume fruits. Any evidence on the effect of fruits to our bodies? can we live without fruits? the nutrients in the fruits?

  • This YouTube channel is literally the BEST weight loss community anywhere. I love it.I am also so grateful I found helped me not only lose weight but keep it off, hope it helps some others!

  • Amen sir! �� I specially like the last comment about adherence to a diet. It should be done enjoyable and customized for every person since the succes depends of that.
    Amen viejo. Quiero resaltar la toma parte sobre adherencia a la dieta. Debe ser personalizada y diafrutable por la persona d otra forma estamos hablando de la famosa eventual dieta q no sirve a largo plazo.
    Cheers college!

  • Thank you for the very kind comment on my narration of The Pleasure Trap. It was an honor. Would you like to come on my live show to promote your show?

  • I have be dealing with herpes for the past 5 years until i got review online about Dr Ehizele people testifies how they got cured with his herbal medicine. And i order the treatment, after taking it for 7 days i totally got cured with Dr Ehizele herbal treatment. I’m recommending you diagnosis with herpes should get this treatment and be cured of it you can contact his email via; [email protected] or whatsapp him on his phone number +2347089384319

  • Would love to know more. Did she have Hashimoto’s or some other thyroid condition? Was she ever on Naturthroid, or only synthetics? Did she gradually decrease her dosage over how long? This was a great start, but I’d love to see/hear a more in-depth interview on the specifics.

  • Thank you for your videos. I had hypothyroidism for 8 years and I used to take synthesis.m, but thanks to the changes in my diet. I no longer take medication and all my labs are perfect. I stopped taking my thyroid meds two years ago. I feel better than ever.

  • So, I am wondering if Jeanne was able to permanently go off of her thyroid medication. I am struggling with this same condition. Thank you for posting this.

  • Thank you so much for such an interesting and informative video. It would be great if next time you use special noises the volume were lower on those parts since I was listening with earphones and at these parts it was painful for my ears. Thanks again and take care.

  • I love this…I support PCRM, I love Jeanne but….there was nothing about foods to get off thyroid. I would be hard pressed to share this.

  • Watch Goodbye Lupus by Brooke Goldner, M.D. to use diet to heal. Eliminate meat, oils, and processed foods, and nourish with raw greens.

  • Amazing story just diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. I feel like I’m googling everything about it and really overwhelmed. But this video is amazing I have to hear more of Mrs. Jeanne story. I have had that same pain after eating a bagel with cream cheese

  • this is nice but “toxins”? I need more information not just this anecdotal stuff. Anybody can say anything about an “incurable” disease and profit off of that

  • I went vegan almost 11 years ago, for the ethics. And I’m still vegan for the animals. Meanwhile, many years ago, I found out that veganism can have a positive impact also for the planet and for my health. So, in the last few years I adopted a wfpb diet, so I can take care of my gut.

    The problem is that I crave for vegan junk food, loaded with SOS and fried and so on, all the time. I don’t remember to have ever craved for something healthy in my whole life. I know it’s weird… All the people I knew and know, crave for at least some fruit or vegetable. But not me! I thought that after years of eating wfpb, my gut microbiome will start to crave for healthy stuff. But no! It finds the taste of everything that is healthy very awful. I also thought that maybe it’s something genetic (even though it’s not something backed by science). But no! My entire family enjoys healthy food.

    Also, I wish to gain some kilos. But eating healthy, is not helpful at all. =))

    No matter what, I’ll keep eating in a rational way and not in an emotional way because it’s the right choice to make.

  • In general, nutrient-dense, calorie-dilute diets work. If you have a food addiction or eating disorder, you have additional work to do.

  • Hello, in this paper, they explains fat have a low satiety index compared to carbs and protein but thats probably also linked to high water content and fiber, makes sense to me:
    This NF video about chicken is interesting, altough this meat is not high in fat, it is the most linked to weight gain for known and unknown reasons, cheese also obviously because it is very fat and contains growth hormone especially aged cheese which concentrate milk muck more.

  • Jeanne, I enjoy watching you interview others and now I get to hear you being interviewed and your great journey. �� BTW, love your outfit and necklace.

  • My doctor told me one time:” As an endocrinologist (Diabetes doctor) I study how to manage diabetes not how to cure diabetes!!! ” I was shocked but I realize the truth which is they don’t want to cure diabetes because they make 14-15 billion dollar a year ONLY IN USA from diabetes medication. These beasts don’t want to lose these money. Over 100 year since insulin treatment founded nothing changed and they willing to continue to use it as treatment because it is a successful trade item that makes trillion of dollar worldwide.

  • WOW �� I watch all her videos but she only shows herself from head up…I finally can see she’s walking the walk!���� She’s looks great��

  • I don’t understand how anyone could give this a thumbs down. Anyway, my doctor (M.D ) is very open minded and stays up to date. It’s good when people can change their opinions based upon the ever changing evidence. I was hesitant to share with her that I was on a ketogenic diet. Shocked me when she admitted that she was too. Hooray for the few good ones out there.

  • Hasn’t anyone bothered to tell her so far that she already has enough natural “black” on her, and therefore those eyes (and also the whole face) would be much more beautiful if they remained simple and natural…!!??

  • Well all any of us csn really draw from is personal experience and mine is that a strict ketogenic diet was best..I dropped all the weight I needed to and have kept it off. Not to mention the health benefits of regulating my insulin levels.

  • Since when plant-based diet is good for thyroid? I switched from being a long-term vegetarian to carnivore diet. Have never felt better. Do your research before following plant-based diet.

  • I too think that the body releases a whole heap of nasty chemicals/hormones with weight loss that bring about their own challenge, on top of losing the weight itself. But so long as you click to whole foods, plant based, and reduce oil as much as possible, they should all make their way out of your system and leave you feeling better and better with every passing month.

  • Same for me.. Took Thyroid meds over 15 yrs.. changed to a Plant-based low to no oil/ fat for digestive issues, couldn’t even tolerate my T meds so stopped taking them… (Doctors/Specialists, multiple tests, etc. & Meds couldn’t resolve). 5-6 months into my new diet/lifestyle… I was eating again, Bloodwork was improving along with Excellent Thyroid Function… Been off all Meds over 5 yrs❤️❤️����.

  • Very interesting questions with thoughtIful responses. I’m going to check out other YT videos of you both. I’ll rewatch the part about the internal audience. I fear that my internal “boss” will never be pleased.

  • Thanks for the weight-loss drive-by. Lots of helpful info. What are your thoughts on caloric density? Watched a vid by Jeff Novick, RD, and he focuses mostly on teaching people about calorie density. It makes a lot of sense. Dr. Greger’s new book also focuses on this. Thoughts?

  • Thank you very much for bringing so many interesting people with very insightful works! You are also very charming and a good interviewer.

  • “After years of doing research in immunology, observing scientific activities of my superiors, and analyzing vaccine issues, I realized that vaccination is one of the most deceptive inventions that science could ever convince the world to accept…”
    Dr. Tetyana Obukhanych, Ph.D. in immunology Rockefeller University, NY, NY
