Health Food & Healthy Eating Resources

There has been a trend in recent years towards health foods and healthier diets as people discover the benefits of a healthier lifestyle that can be achieved and enjoyed by eating health food. The increase in obesity among the population and concerns regarding the ethics and safety of producing and consuming GMO food has lead to an increase in the number of people considering a change in eating habits and diets by eating health food and organic foodstuffs.

Diet plans are no longer simply about weightloss and are increasingly becoming lifestyle choices. There are many popular diets and eating plans each with their own merits and appeal to different sectors of society for different reasons depending on the lifestyle of the individual and what they wish to achieve and their lifestyle. There are also diets based on physiological intolerance to certain food types such as celiac disease which requires a gluton free diet and other allergen free diets. When first considering a change in diet and eating habits the wide variety of diets such as The Palio Diet, The Dash Diet, The Dukan Diet, The Atkins Diet, Vegetarian Diet, Vegan Diet, Low Carb Diets, Whole Food Diets, etc can be a bit daunting. For this reason this website is intended to provide a central respository of resources related to health food and healthy eating.
