Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.

And there you have it. A few extra years onto your life.

'Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.' that is the synthesis of the book The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan.
I had heard an interview on Radio New Zealand National between Pollan and the very strange, but often amusing Kim Hill and made a mental note to buy the book. Haven't done so yet, but I will as I was reminded reading a blog entry by UK advertising planner Philip Slade (whom I discovered in a link from my Ziki.com page).

Mr Slade's entry linked to an excellent essay in the The New York Times by Pollan. To read it you must register, but it is free and well worth the effort. Or you could simply adopt the mantra...Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants...and wonder how the Atkins diet got so much traction.
