Scientist have developed a healthy diet without causing irreversible harm to the planet

Did you know?

Scientists have just developed a healthy diet that could feed 10 billion people, without causing irreversible harm to the environment.

Although the diet does not ban meat completely, it recommends to get most of our protein from nuts and legumes (such as beans and lentils) instead.

The diet is the following:
Nuts – 50g a day
Beans, chickpeas, lentils and other legumes – 75g a day
Fish – 28g a day
Eggs – 13g a day (so one and a bit a week) 
Meat – 14g a day of red meat and 29g a day of chicken 
Carbs – whole grains like bread and rice 232g a day and 50g a day of starchy vegetables
Dairy – 250g – the equivalent of one glass of milk 
Vegetables -(300g) and fruit (200g) 
The diet has room for 31g of sugar and about 50g worth of oils like olive oil.

World population is currently 7.7 billion and is expected to reach 10 billion by 2050. So why not start and adopt this diet from now on? Easy! 😉
