The Full Plate Diet

I came across this site a month ago, downloaded the book and read it straight away. Turns out it's on the best seller list. I think it's just great that the authors have made it available free online to everyone. Information on about healthy eating should be free for everyone! You know I'm not about "diets" in the sense of strict, temporary, on-again/off-again measures but the Full Plate approach of eating high fiber foods is definitely worth investigating. High fiber means more volume, more volume means more fullness.

The book presents a lot of good, solid nutrition information as well as some very interesting statistics. I learned that avocados are very high in fiber. I knew they were amazing for healthy fats, but fiber, too? BONUS! The information is straightforward and well presented. I don't necessarily agree on their viewpoint of meat and dairy, but learning about the health benefits of fiber was definitely worth the read.

I'm not going to do a formal review, but rather point you to it and encourage you to read it. If you do, please come back to this post and let me know what you think.
