To achieve a better yangsheng effect, one should intake at least 25 different kinds of foods on a daily basis, including grains, beans, nuts, vegitables, eggs, milk, meat and sea produce.
Recommended by leading yangsheng experts and prepared by the 'imperial kitchen', this diet has been practised by China's very top national rulers/leaders since ancient dynasties. As a diet principle, this number became known to the public only in recent decade.
While the content of the diet may vary with different people in different times, the number of 25 must be reached daily as it ensures the balance of nutrients.
