Here is a list of the top 10 foods that this diet suggests for you to include in your diet:

• Green, leafy vegetables. This includes kale, spinach, cooked greens and salads.

• All other vegetables. The best types of vegetables are the ones with less starch because they have a lot of nutrients with a low number of calories.

• Berries such as strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries because they are rich in antioxidants

• Nuts

• Olive oil. You can use olive oil as your main cooking oil.

• Whole grains, like oatmeal, quinoa, brown rice, whole-wheat pasta and 100% whole-wheat bread.

• Fish. Fatty fish like salmon, sardines, trout, tuna and mackerel are great options as they have high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids.

• Beans, including lentils and soybeans.

• Poultry including lean chicken and turkey

• Wine (in moderation). Both red and white wine may benefit the brain.
