Eat animal-based protein 3 times per day. This includes: organic eggs, free-range meats, poultry, and fish.
Vegetables and Fruits:
Eat 10-12 servings of organic fruits and veggies daily. Eat at least twice as many veggies (raw and cooked) and fruits and consume fruits away from other foods and meals.
Use grass-fed butter (Kerrygold), coconut oil, and organic 1st cold press olive oil in cooking… grape seed, sesame, and other seed oils are great too. Avoid margarine, canola, vegetable oil, and partially hydrogenated fats. Read your labels, these are poison!
Drink water only. For every 50lbs of body weight drink 1L of water. If you weigh 175 lbs., drink 3.5L (approx. 122 ounces) each day.
Eat every two-three hours to avoid blood sugar crashes. Favor whole food snacks like nuts and unsweetened dried fruit.
Be careful with wheat, corn, soy dairy, sugar, and yeast-containing foods. Over-consuming these items can lead to the body feeling overloaded with exposure to the same narrow range of nutrients and it will revolt. Diversify your diet. Have a wide variety of foods everyday and every week.
Limit caffeine and alcohol! Coffee can be blended with grass-fed butter and/or MCT (Medium-chain triglyceride) oil to produce a beverage commonly known as ‘Bulletproof’ coffee. Alcohol should be limited to one drink or less per day.
Legumes are full of lectins and phytic acid and should be limited and not lived-on. Legumes that are fermented and or soaked and sprouted may be more easily digested than those that are not.
Be wary of all processed and packaged foods. Read your labels and know what you are consuing. They are ofeten full of preservatives additives, and colorings. MSG is a hidden trouble-maker too and should be avoided. Fried foods are full of trans fats which are poisons.
This is a short primer on diet and by no means is the final word. Talk with an experienced practicioner or pick up a book on the Paleo diet, ketogenic diet, the zone diet and learn more for yourself on what works for you. No one diet is perfect for every person on the planet. Worldwide, our diets are as diverse as our climates and the people who live in them.
