In this video, Dr. Sam Robbins details the best foods to eat, no matter your health, age, or sex:

1. Carbohydrates
The best source of carbohydrates is from plants and vegetables. Eat them as much as you want. The best would be:
Broccoli
Brussels sprouts
Asparagus
Bok choy
Celery
Cucumber


In the last two you can eat raw and the first ones should be lightly steamed.

ME: I eat mainly broccoli, Brussels sprouts, celery, and cucumbers, along with mixed greens in a salad.

2. Starches
The best would be
Yams
Sweet Potatoes
White rice
Butternut squash
Lentils (soaked/washed for 24 hours or pressure cooked)

ME: My main source of carbs are from yams and white rice. I do have some lentils, but no matter how I cook them, I just don’t digest legumes very well.


3. Fruit
I know people scare you into NOT eating fruit because of fructose, but that’s just silly. YES, high fructose corn syrup and fruit juice must be avoided. Dried fruits should be limited. But fruit is mainly water and fiber. It’s fine, eat it. The best fruits are:
Berries: Blackberries, Raspberries, Blueberries, Strawberries
Lemons & Limes
Pomegranate (NOT the juice and eat the seeds)
Avocados (yes, this is technically a fruit, even though I categorize it as a “fat”)
Grapefruit
Pineapples
Kiwifruit

ME: I mainly just eat lemons daily, blueberries year-round and pineapples occasionally.

4. Protein
I think out of all the proteins, low mercury fish is the best; and wild-caught, sockeye Salmon, anchovies, and sardines are ideal.  The next best is grass-fed bison. It’s much better than a cow. Both of these protein sources are expensive, but the quality is far more important than quantity. If you need more protein in your diet, add in vegetable protein sources such as organic rice or hemp protein.

ME: I primarily eat:
Grass-fed bison
Wild-caught salmon
Rice and hemp
Some pastured raised whole eggs

I have small amounts of grass-fed, cold filtration, whey isolate during my workouts.

No pork, chicken, and shellfish.

5. Fats
And the final category is fats. The best and safest are:
Avocado's – it’s mainly fat, even though it’s technically a “fruit”
Raw Nuts: walnuts are the best. Macadamia, almond, and pistachios are second in line.
OILS: Extra virgin olive oil (you better pick a good brand because most are fake), Macadamia nut, Udo’s Blend, fish, hemp

Ideally, you should NOT heat your fats. Eat them raw.

I did not list animal fats, seed or vegetable oils. These aren’t good for you and can be very bad, especially when fried in.

ME: I mainly have fish oil, extra virgin olive and Udo’s oil the majority of the time.
