I spend a lot of time writing and talking about what isn’t true. Over the past few months, we’ve had lots of episodes talking about how many nutrition recommendations aren’t supported by science. I’ve argued that what many people are telling you may be inaccurate. In response, lots of you have asked me what nutrition recommendations should say.

The truth is that it’s much easier to tell you what not to do, than to tell you what to do. But we don’t avoid the hard questions. Recently I shared my nutrition recommendations over at the Upshot at the New York Times, and they were surprisingly popular. So I’m going to share them with you, here on Healthcare Triage

You should go read that piece, which all of this is based on. References and links can be found there: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/21/upshot/simple-rules-for-healthy-eating.html
