A Simple Healthy Diet in a Few Words
A simple healthy diet is a menu of 85% raw, uncooked, and unprocessed plant-based food, and 15% cooked, plant-based food.  http://www.hacres.com/
Why Plant-based Foods?
The design of the human body is not like that of carnivorous mammals; our digestive tract was not designed to properly digest and dispose of meat.
Carnivorous mammals have a relatively short and straight digestive tract that eliminates meat waste efficiently.Herbivores and humans have a much longer digestive tract that includes many bends and pockets. Because our stomach acid is not designed to completely break down meat (as it does with plant based foods), undigested meat can get trapped in these bends and pockets. Here it can putrefy for days, delaying elimination and thus causing toxicity—a key component of disease creation. Our food has the amazing power to both create and destroy health.
The dense, living nutrients found in a diet of primarily raw, plant-based foods and their juices are the ingredients needed to meet and satisfy your cells’ nutritional needs, restore damaged cells and rebuild whole-body health that will last a lifetime.

As commonly recommended by health professionals, Diet includes eating more fruits and vegetables, drinking more water, eating less saturated fats and hydrogenated oils, consuming more fiber, getting more exercise and alleviating stress.
