E1: The Planetary Health Diet

What is the planetary health diet and how will it benefit both people and planet?

For the first time in history we have a full scientific review of what constitutes a healthy diet from a sustainable food system. And which actions can support and speed up food system transformation. 

The EAT-Lancet Commission of Food, Planet, Health introduces the planetary health diet – a optimal diet for people and planet. But what does this look like? What should we actually eat?

In the first episode of the Let’s Rethink Food podcast, the leading experts and co-chairs of the EAT-Lancet Commission, Prof Walter Willett and Prof. Johan Rockström take you through the key findings of the groundbreaking report.
