The word is out that a plant-based diet helps to fight obesity and chronic illnesses such as heart disease, adult onset diabetes and cancer. Many Americans have begun following AlCR's advice to fill their plates with two-thirds (or more) vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans and one-third (or less) fish, poultry or red meat. That is, they are trying to take the spotlight off animal protein and push vegetables center stage. To do that, they reduce their serving of meat to no more than three ounces - the size of a deck of cards. Then they add three or more servings of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans. That's the New American Plate.
