CR-friendly foods list

Nutrition data has a relatively new feature they call the nutrient balance indicator which is a combination of the fullness factor relative to their nutrition. It should be useful for CR. See
http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts-B00001-01c20e3.html . From the site the following 20 foods rank highest for their NBI if one wishes to drop weight so they are particularly early stage CR friendly:

Alfalfa seeds, sprouted, raw
Cowpeas
Amaranth leaves
Asparagus
Balsam-pear (bitter gourd)
Beans:
Kidney
Mung
Shellie
Snap
Beet greens
Broccoli
Cabbage:
[Type not listed so I assume standard store bought cabbage]
Red
Savoy
Chinese
Cardoon
Celery
Celtuce
Chard, Swiss
Chicory

Once weight loss has been obtained and one is in a CR stable pattern consider the following 20 foods which the NBI ranks as best for health:

Taro leaves
Dock
Horseradish-tree leafy tips
Asparagus
Squash, zucchini
Dock
Chives
Turnip greens and turnips
Mustard greens
Kale
Jute
Broccoli
Sweet potato leaves
Pokeberry shoots
Lambsquarters
Collards
Alfalfa seeds
Mustard spinach
Kale
Collards

Both lists have been simplified for this posting. For greatest accuracy go to the site and examine the NBI feature.

For those, like me, too busy to mess with the whole computerized diet thing here is my simplfied CR mantra (AKA CR for the brain dead):

Just eat a lot of weird vegetable foods your Grandparents used to eat that most of your friends have not seen in years, if ever. Eat these raw if possible.

Care to go for the gold and become a certified CRON expert? Along with your high vegetable diet eat a lesser amount of animal based foods, often weird, that your Grandparents ate like gizzards, liver, kidney, etc.
