The high-carb, low-fat diet is the main focus of many plant-based whole foods advocates. Processed vegan foods are avoided, with a particular emphasis on fruits, veggies, intact whole grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds. Added oils, including olive oil and coconut oil, are avoided, and for some practitioners, avocados, olives, pickles, nuts, and seeds are limited. 

The percentage of carbs consumed daily is about 70% - 80% of calories, while fat would be around 12% or less (possibly more for athletes and kids). For people working on reversing a disease like heart disease or type-2 diabetes, fat intake would be about 5% or less with added fats off the shopping list – at least until the disease battle has been won. 

Cookhouse Hero asks you to consider this: Reversing a disease takes deep commitment and for many, an almost 180-degree turnaround with diet, exercise, sleep, and stress. A HCLF diet has oodles of evidence-based science showing the results of disease reversal without drugs or surgery.
