Introducing the Evidence-Based Eating Guide
Check Out Our New Resource
One of the most common requests we get is for some type of practical guide to healthy eating that health practitioners can hand out in their offices or people can use at tabling events. That was part of my goal in writingÂ How Not to Die. I took thousands of videos and boiled them down into a scant little… 562 page book. Hard to carry around 50 of those in your backpack!
So I am excited to announce a brand-new resource fromÂ NutritionFacts.org, a summary of my practical tips in booklet form, our newÂ Evidence-BasedÂ Eating Guide.Â It includes a summary of my Traffic Light system and Daily Dozen checklist, as well as tips for putting them into practiceâeven a couple of sample meal plans.
Get it right here.Â There’s a digital download link and print-friendly version. We’re hoping to also have an on-demand print option set up next month so you can order pre-printed glossy copies (at cost).Â
Daily Dozen Challenge 2.0
To help you get that Daily Dozen checklist ticked off every day, we’ve re-launched our popular Daily Dozen Challenge to help more people discover how easy it is to fit some of the healthiest of healthy foods into their daily routine. I kicked it off this year by publicly challenging five of my friends and you to try to check off all the Daily Dozen servings for one day. Then you challenge more people, and on and on, and soon lots of people will be eating healthy foods!Â
To see who I challenged this year head over here. For inspiration, search the #dailydozenchallenge hashtag on Instagram, or watch some of the videos we have shared in a challenge playlist on YouTube.Â Â
Join in the fun by:Â
- Accepting the Challenge:Â Pick a day to eat the Daily Dozen, and then release your own public announcement asking others to do it.
- Posting a picture or video about your experience and tagging 3 more people to challenge them: Use hashtagsÂ #HowNotToDieÂ and #DailyDozenChallengeÂ in your announcement post and ask others to do the same. Let people know they can track their Daily Dozen on our freeÂ iPhoneÂ andÂ AndroidÂ apps. You can challenge 3 people personally, or ask all of your friends!
- Donating: If you or your âchallengeesâ are unable to complete the Daily Dozen challenge you can ask them to consider donating $12 to help spread this life-changing, life-saving info to others.
If you don’t have it yet, myÂ cookbook has tons of green-lightÂ recipes to help reach the Daily Dozen (all my proceeds from all my books go to charity). There are also a few dozen free recipes right here onÂ NutritionFacts.org.Â
Hiring: Web Developer
Our end-of-year fundraising campaign was such a smashing success (thanks to you!), we’re excited to offer a new job opening.
