Michael Pollan Advices to Eat food, Not too much. Mostly Plants

Here’s an advice by famous food writer Michael Pollan if you are looking forward this New Year to lose weight and keep yourself fit and healthy. He suggests to ‘Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants’.

Michael Pollan's documentary film In Defense of Food is going to be premiered on PBS on Wednesday, December 30. The film is based on his book ‘In Defense of Food’.

His suggestion ‘Eat Food’ means people usually prefer eating outside and end up eating high-calorie food and junk which increase their weight. He suggests making a choice between eating at home or outside.

According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), several kids eat fast food every day. And Pollan said that it should be considered as a food when it has come through the window of your car.

His advice to ‘Not too Much’ means that during festival season restaurants majorly offer excessively large portions. Restaurants believe they have to serve portions that satisfy the demands of the most voracious eaters, not the average. Pollan said restaurants serve you with supersize portions to make you feel that you are getting your money worth.

Mostly Plants: It is known that fresh produce has a short shelf life and is more challenging to ship and resell. On the other hand, processed foods and animal-based products such as dairy and meat are easily available.

Pollan said that our incentive structure promotes the wrong type of foods, and therefore it is your take to decide which one is good for you.
