Nutrition is a hotbed topic, and there are lots of views on what really is right for people to eat. Kris Gunnars, a blogger at io9.com, posted a thoughtful post about consensus ideas, regardless of your approach to nutrition. The article does a good job of sharing those varied points, so check out the full article:

  1. Added sugar is a disaster. 
  2. Omega-3 Fats are crucial and most people don’t get enough
  3. There is no perfect diet for everyone
  4. Trans fats are very unhealthy and should be avoided
  5. Eating vegetables will improve your health
  6. It is critical to avoid a vitamin D deficiency
  7. Refined carbohydrates are bad for you
  8. Supplements can never fully replace real foods
  9. “Diets” don’t work, a lifestyle change is necessary
  10. Unprocessed food is healthiest

Hard to argue with this list, isn’t it? How many of these do you really live by?
