The Swedish LiveWell diet would reduce greenhouse emissions from the current average by 25% – at a slightly lower cost than that of the current diet.
The LiveWell diet shows a decrease in meat and an increase in vegetables. There is a notable change in the composition of the categories, with big increases in lentils and carrots and a shift in meat consumption from beef and pork towards chicken. Increases would be needed in fish and egg consumption to source correct levels of protein while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. There’s a decrease in cheese in the LiveWell diet, but increases in other dairy products, particularly yoghurt.
