What Is 4Leaf?

617 jpeg 4Leaf Logo4Leaf is an eating concept designed to make it easy for everyone to learn how to eat a near-optimal diet. Naturally, it all begins with the definition of the optimal diet for humans.In the interest of simplicity, we chose this statement by Professor Emeritus T. Colin Campbell of Cornell University. Here, he concisely summarizes his conclusions after a half-century career as a nutritional scientist:

“The closer we get to eating a diet of whole, plant-based foods, the better off we will be.”

—T. Colin Campbell, PhD, Nutritional Biochemistry

History. The 4Leaf model was created in 2009 and was first introduced to the public in our 2011 BenBella book entitled, “Healthy  Eating, Healthy World.” We registered the trademark and introduced the 4Leaf Survey in 2012. In 2015, we formed 4Leaf Global, LLC, the company that will execute the 4Leaf mission going forward:

Promoting health, hope and harmony on planet Earth

    I find 4leaf an excellent idea but in my situation (ESRD/on dialysis) I have to follow a diet with max.2000mgs of potassium (pretty low)+800mgs of phosphorus (pretty low especially with the high protein required)+2400 kcals (pretty high with WFPB) +80 grams of protein (pretty high) per day – with all these restrictions I doubt I could reach 3leaf let alone 4. Any idea or sample menu compliant with both 4leaf and dialysis diet?

    I just finished your audiobook and found it very interesting and totally agree with your points on health. i was hoping you guys had a 4 leaf app to help me keep track of eating habits in order to better break bad patterns. Is there anything like this around?

    • J. Morris Hicks says:

      Lewis, Glad you liked our book. As for a 4Leaf app, we will have one in the future, but I am not sure when. In the meantime, I recommend that you go to 4leafprogram.com, take our survey once a week as your eating habits improve. That little survey is pretty accurate in estimating your 4Leaf level; it has been given about 2500 times and people seem to like it.

      Be well, Jim Hicks
