The No-Grain Diet is a book and diet plan developed by osteopathic physician Joseph Mercola. He claims that overconsumption of grains and sugars is the cause of many degenerative diseases, such as diabetes and cancer as well as obesity. Recently, he is calling this diet the "Total Health Program" including a 3-stage "Nutrition Plan".
Additional recommended knowledge
The No-Grain Diet emphasizes organic vegetables with limited fruits, quality meats, eggs and oils such as virgin coconut oil and virgin olive oil. It discourages the eating of any grain-products, sugars, most fish, most polyunsaturated oils and processed foods.
The diet goes against the recommendations of most mainstream nutritionists and dieticians; for example, the American Dietetic Association recommends fish and polyunsaturated oils as part of a healthy diet.
The book was number 5 on the New York Times bestseller list for May 18, 2003.
