As hoped, Brian and I see eye to eye. The factors that influence what people choose to do with food matter, but so too do the foods chosen, and what they do to the people. We need not choose to focus on one of these, and neglect the other.
If you are shopping for a diet, the annual guidance offered by U.S. News & World Report is quite robust. But it, too, leaves a potentially important question unaddressed: should you really be shopping for a diet in the first place?

Experts agree that since the body uses calories from different nutrients in different ways, the key to successful weight loss is paying attention to more than just the numbers on a box.
I'm not sure that alternative diets with some salient feature to define them need to compete with one another. A second and related concern is that this kind of exercise may tend to foster a preoccupation with labels, rather than compositional details.
That sensibility may not fit so well with our on-demand culture, where we want results now -- be it dinner or weight loss

Those who want today's news to be that the Mediterranean diet has been proven superior to other truly good diets will need to wait until tomorrow, or longer. We had previously lacked any good head-to-head comparisons of "best diet" candidates, and we still do.
No one thing is wrong with the prevailing American diet, and no one-nutrient-at-a-time remedy will right it any more than a single part represents the whole elephant in the room. We need to see that elephant -- and develop a better recipe.

The conversation regarding what constitutes the ideal diet for optimal wellness and longevity is an ongoing and exhausting debate. Experts from each respective dietary camp have a plethora of data pointing to their case for why their particular system is the gold standard.
Many foods can be eaten raw, and many foods are the better for it. An emphasis on eating mostly plants is irrefutably good, be they raw or cooked. But the case for raw food diets is oversold, the rhetoric is overheated, and the claims of universal benefits -- substantially overcooked.
