PlantPure Word of the Day: Whole-Food, Plant-Based (WFPB) Diet
The whole-food, plant-based (WFPB) diet or lifestyle is what we recommend as the optimal diet for human health.
What exactly is the WFPB diet?
- Consuming plant-based foods in forms as close to their natural state as possible (“whole” foods).
- Eating a variety of vegetables, fruits, raw nuts and seeds, beans and legumes, and whole grains.
- Avoiding heavily processed foods, animal products, and added salt, oil, and sugars.
Why eat a whole-food, plant-based diet? Based on many years of research and overwhelming evidence, Dr. T. Colin Campbell reports in his book Whole — Rethinking the Science of Nutrition, “People who adopt a WFPB diet find that most of their health problems were caused or significantly worsened by their old diets and resolve naturally and quickly once the body starts getting the proper fuel.”
Aside from the many benefits for personal health, there are other compelling reasons for adopting and promoting a WFPB diet: to reduce the number of animals subjected to pain and suffering due to factory farming practices and conditions, and to reduce animal agriculture’s large role in degrading the environment through air pollution, water pollution, and deforestation.

The story of Eloise’s plant-based transition is highly unusual because throughout her life, quite a few physicians suggested she look into a vegan diet before she actually made the change. Her story begins in the 1980s when she was working in Silicon Valley and was a self-described type A personality. At 122 lbs., she looked healthy on the outside, but had high cholesterol. Interestingly, her physician recommended that she change over to a vegetarian diet to control her cholesterol. At the time, Eloise did not take his advice, but later wished she could turn back the clock to transition to a plant-based lifestyle much sooner.
