Include These Foods for Maximum Body Benefits


  • ETHELMERZ, just asking, depending on what you're saying it is a LIE? may be it is but how is it proven that it is a lie? - 10/20/2015 5:09:11 AM
    Unfortunately, these "super" foods are good for you, but not as "Super" as they were thought to be, researchers are disappointed that these foods will not prevent diseases as much as advertised, AND organic or not, you still get vitamins from the fruits and vegetables, it's a LIE that organic is better, just get real people, get off of your high horse with organic. - 8/22/2015 9:02:09 AM
  • You lost me when you added chickpeas and garbanzo beans because they are the same thing and if you did not know that and counted them as two separate items well.... - 6/21/2015 7:24:25 PM
  • This list is honestly lazy. Cheese, pork, and yogurt as superfoods? Yet no mention of chia seeds, maca root powder, cacao, camu camu, etc...It almost reads like an advertisement for the meat and dairy industries. Granted, there's no actual criteria for anything called a super food, but the general consensus seems to be foods (mostly plant based) that pack a wallop of nutrients. Milk, canola oil and the highly processed sodium nightmare that are veggie burgers? Not so much. This is extremely misleading. - 6/5/2015 8:40:25 PM

    I have hashimoto's and I follow the list, I put on more 5 pounds in just 2 days!!!
    Also I'm really swollen, specially my feet. Probably I can't eat some foods specially with sugar our gluten. - 4/5/2015 12:19:43 AM
  • Most of these are foods I eat regularly, so to meet the challenge of trying a new superfood, I've added almond milk, rice milk, triticale, and hemp seeds to my shopping list. Do I use triticale just like wheat? - 2/21/2015 9:04:26 PM
  • So this list is pretty much an unprocessed american diet? All of these foods can be found in most processed food as well. This list is quite simplistic and misleading. - 1/23/2015 11:51:45 AM
  • I'm surprised to not see coconut oil on this list. Also, canola oil is definitely in question. - 1/11/2015 4:51:04 PM
  • Meat and meat by products (eggs and milk) may have protein but they are also full of antibiotics and steroids. I don't eat them.

    Vegetables and fruit are great as long as they are organically grown. I have picked up non organic apples at the store and felt the pesticide residue on them. I showed the difference to my husband and he quit giving me a hassle about the extra cost. - 11/15/2014 1:13:40 PM
  • Unless strawberries are organic, don't let them get near your mouth. They are a toxic soup. - 11/14/2014 7:50:55 AM
    Meat and dairy are great options. My whole life I was told that most Americans get plenty of protein, so I assumed I was, wrong. I find it incredibly difficult to increase my protein, without increasing my carbs and fat even more, if I don't eat enough meat and dairy. - 9/6/2014 6:09:28 PM
  • OK, so I had to count. I eat 95 of these! The vast majority on a regular basis.

    I also agree with the comments that most of the meat and dairy should not be listed as super foods! - 8/21/2014 12:20:00 PM
  • The healthiest place to get calcium is actually dark, leafy greens. Some of us don't eat dairy, or dairy substitutes like soy milk. (I have acne that seems to react specifically to these foods.) That doesn't mean we have to be deficient. I understand vegetables were listed in their own column, but if you're going to have a column to list calcium-rich foods, why would you leave off vegetables and sardines? - 8/1/2014 12:51:33 PM
    Sorry - but meat and dairy are not super foods. Unless you count them as 'super dangerous' for one's health. There is quite a lot of scientific evidence that suggests that animal products contribute to getting cancer. See the book 'Eat to Live', for example. - 7/23/2014 7:22:17 AM
    A worry to see low fat items on this list! - 6/13/2014 8:10:42 PM
