“The Best Foods” Lists and What to Avoid Too

It seems as if people are finally waking up to the fact that we are what we eat. There are seemingly unlimited types of diet information available including Atkins, South Beach, Blood Type, Gland Type, Low fat, etc. etc. Sometime too much information can be as confusing as a lack of information. As such, I have included the top 5 foods from each of the 7 major groups of foods.
