BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Similar to the Whole Foods Diet, the Natural Foods Diet endorses a way of eating that is free of additives and processed ingredients. Rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, sustainably and organically-raised poultry, dairy, meat and whole grains, the Natural Foods Diet is in direct contrast to the Western Diet, which is comprised of processed and highly refined foods and is strongly implicated in adverse health conditions.

The Natural Foods Diet is a way of eating that was followed years ago before the emergence of large food manufacturers and chain restaurants. The kind of eating has seen a recent boost in popularity as health devotees seek out a diet that supports both their health and the health of the planet.
