Whole foods is what the body does best on. Skip all the probiotics and snake oil the writer is talking about. The problem is the writer is as bad as the anti-science, climate deniers and bull shitters because he is doing the same thing. He is taking the bad stuff that always follows good and making the whole lot bad. I have lived the whole foods anti processed lifestyle for 4 years now. When you are +50, not on meds, regular daily, have not gotten the flu or colds in that time with all the medicated and sick people around then something in the WHOLE FOODs world works. Even the doctor I see once a year for screenings does not promote healthy eating, it's just not taught by anyone in the medical community (industrial complex). Going after what should be good for almost everyone (biology has its quirks) is just another denier jumping into the mix to support the corn-fed, drug dependant, sugar high society. This sounds like someone that thinks that more than 3/4s of the freezers full of cakes, ice cream, pizzas and frozen waffles is a healthy diet. (Except for the college dorm where Beer, Pizza and Twinkies are food groups J/K). By the way, that Ezekiel bread digest better than any other bread on the market. The reason being 90% of what is on the shelf goes directly to sugar which is what stickies up the blood.
Besides what stores sell, you have to know what is real and what is not and organic is a whole lot better when it is certified.
Go to the real veggies and fruits, most of this is good, some better than others.
Whole meats are still the better choice (yes these are what WHOLE FOODS are about).
Canned and frozen veggies can be used but avoid the sauces and flavorings. Frozen peas, beans and some fruits with no additives are still OK.
Milks, eggs and cheese without additives are the final clue. If you have a farmers market or store with organics then you rock (we don't and look at what state I live in but I still seek out the good stuff).
