questioning Posted July 12, 2012 Share Posted July 12, 2012 Sorry if this is in the wrong section - I didn't see a 'general questions' section. I've been hearing a lot about the Whole30 lifestyle from several people around me. Most of them have praised the diet, so I've become interested. There's only one lingering question I have. It's not meant to be an antagonistic question - just generally looking for an opinion on it. From what I understand, whole30 is supposed to not just help with weight, but overall health in general (such as preventing cancer, diabetes, etc.). I understand there are many factors that go into an overall population's health, not just diet. However I'm still curious why some populations that include a very large portion of carbohydrates and soy-based foods in their diet, such as the Japanese with their very high per-capita white rice consumption, show some of the lowest cancer/disease rates and highest average life expectancies? From what I understand of the whole30 diet, nearly all traditional Japanese food would be cut out, correct? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
