the right proportions

When it comes to health and weight control, the foods you eat are important, but the proportion in which you eat them is critical to reaching and maintaining your ideal weight and optimal health. The Diet Code applies Golden Ratio math to create a diet of 52% carbohydrates, 20% protein and 28% fat (by calories).

Understanding The Diet Code Fundamental Food Pyramid is one of the first steps toward eating a truly balanced diet. The base represents the 52% of total calories that should come from fundamental carbohydrates; half vegetable and fruit, and half grains and beans – and including a bit of wine, beer and dark chocolate! The upper levels of the pyramid divide fats (28% of calories) and proteins (20% of calories) equally between animal sources – fish, eggs, poultry, beef, lamb, dairy products – and vegetable sources – nuts, seeds, olives, avocados and their oils.

The numbers 52, 20, and 28 have long been identified with prominence in the architecture and cosmology of ancient cultures from Egypt and Mesopotamia to MesoAmerica. 28, for instance, variously represents the lunar cycle, a yogic age of spiritual unfolding, one of the Egyptian cubit measures, and a fundamental Mayan calculational coordinate.

The same Golden Ratio formulas that structure the universe, the same math that describes the human body, naturally creates a diet that will give you everything you need (and nothing you don't) to fuel your day and your life. Taking Leonardo's lead, we'll build from a foundation of these fundamental foods put together into perfectly proportioned meals - guided by numbers all the way.
