Where lies your interest?

Are you making healthy choices for your life?

A vista can stand for more than beautiful scenery, and instead like the above image represent what lies ahead. An ideal or a goal to which you can aspire. And this should be based on reality, not a pipe dream.

In the midst of this jungle of nutritional information, diet-health.info offers you objective and well-researched evidence. We want to provide you with information about the links between lifestyle and diseases of affluence — grounded in scientific research that isn’t tainted by industry interests.

Our texts don’t reflect the latest trends in diet and nutrition that will soon be outdated. Instead, our focus is on healthy habits that have been established to be the foundation for a long and healthy life.

Our nonprofit foundation does not sell anything.
We only provide you with information that will enable you to form your own educated opinion. (The motivation for this)

What do we really need and what doesn’t work? How and to what extent is our health under our own control and how much is determined by our genes? What genetic dispositions can we change as a result of our diet and lifestyle?

These are the types of questions we answer. However, if you want to gain a deep understanding you will need to be inquisitive, interested, and persistent.

But right now I would like to wish you good health and all the best as you find the path that will lead you there.

Cordially,
Ernst Erb  (Foundation Pres.)

Back to Basics

I have been a type 2 diabetic for many years, but in recent years my diabetes started getting worse. I was taking three medications, two oral and one injection. Could never understand how following a strict carb diet and getting adequate excersize couldn't stop the progression.

I spent a week in Freemont, California where I was eating various Asian foods for breakfast lunch and dinner. Noticed over the course of that week that my blood sugar would drop very fast and low levels. My carb intake had not changed but the type of carbs that I was taking in did change. The foods I was eating while in Freemont contained many authentic fresh vegitable dishes, fresh fruit and a lot of types of green tea.

When I got back to my home, the first thing I did was change all allowed carbs to natural carbs. I would eat a serving of rice instead of bread, vegitable juice over concentrated fruit juices and so on. It wasn't more than a few weeks before I could start taking three medications down to one. With a little more work, maybe I can take no medications. 

Long story short, I have found that good nutrition starts with going back to the foods that we were meant to eat. We should be getting back to the basics by eating the foods that are more natural and closer to being picked off the vine.

Democritus (c. 460 BC - c. 370 BC): (from Wikiquote.org)

Men in their prayers beg the gods for health, not knowing that this is a thing they have in their own power. Through their incontinence undermining it, they themselves become, because of their passions, the betrayers of their own health.

Vegan Recipes
Savory Pea Pancakes (Erbsenpfannkuchen) from the cookbook “Das vegane Kochbuch meiner Oma” (My grandma’s vegan cookbook), p.52
The sun-dried chili peppers give the pea pancakes a special flair. We recommend trying the pancakes with curry, herbs, or lime juice. See alternate preparation.
Cucumber Rolls with “Goat’s Cheese” and Mint Sauce (Gurken-Rolle, Ziegenkäse, Minz-Sauce) from the cookbook “Everyday Raw Express,” page 84
These Cucumber Rolls with “Goat’s Cheese” and Mint Sauce hold together surprisingly well. They are ideal as an appetizer or finger food when you have guests.
Erb Muesli for two people ready to serve — lactose-free and gluten-free (vegan, raw). For a special finishing touch, we’ve added some freshly grated ginger.
Erb Muesli is a vegan, and therefore lactose-free, raw muesli. With seeds instead of sprouted grains, it is also gluten-free and a good “bread replacement.”
