Whenever possible, eat organically grown, sun-ripened fruits and vegetables.
Make sure you eat at least sixty per cent of your food raw, as conventional cooking methods destroy all the enzymes and certain vitamins and minerals. Eat sprouted beans regularly, and you will be eating true live food.
Keep your sugar level low
Eat more lentils, kidney beans, navy beans, quinol, cabbage, broccoli, peppers, cauliflowers, apples, oranges, kiwi fruits, and berries. These won’t increase your sugar levels, so you won’t overproduce insulin and turn everything you eat into fat.
Fresh and Steam
Make sure you regularly eat fresh salads with plenty of tomatoes, celery, cucumbers, capsicums, lettuces, parsley, basil, mushrooms, onions and garlic. Sprinkle generously with extra-virgin, cold pressed olive oil and apple cider vinegar. Steam your vegetables (including potatoes, pumpkins and sweet potatoes); don’t boil or fry them.
Get rid of your microwave
Microwaved food can cause structural, functional, and immunological changes in the body. Also, microwave cooking diminishes a food’s energy pattern by energetically disrupting its biomolecular structure. Fats in particular are denaturated by microwave radiation, resulting in a free radical formation.
Low Fat Sources of Proteins
Make low-fat sources of proteins the second most important component of your daily meals. And make sure you get most (if not all) of these proteins from vegetable sources like dried beans, quinoa, lentils, chickpeas, peanuts, nuts, grains, corn, and mushrooms.
Make sure you give your body fibres
Get your supply of fibre from fruits and vegetables. Get your fibre from the real things, not from cereal packets!
Avoid cured meats
Avoid to eat cured meats, such as ham, salame, pancetta, sausages, bacon, and pies; as they are very likely to have been treated with nitrates and nitrites.
Stay away from mercury
Eat fish and other seafood in moderation, and never fried. Fish such as tuna and salmon are likely to be highly contaminated with mercury.
Stay away from saturated fats
Stay well away from saturated fats (the kind found in dairy and animal products.) Switch to unsaturated fats like olive oil.
Avoid potato chips and other deep-fried junk foods.
No more than 5 eggs per week
If you eat eggs, make sure they are fresh and come from free-range hen sources. Don’t eat more than about five per week, and don’t fry them. Eat them steamed or soft-boiled.
Avoid all kinds of sugar and sugar-ridden products, such as lollies, cakes, biscuits, soft drinks, doughnuts, cookies, commercial fruit juices, ice cream, jam, chocolate, syrups, sweetened yoghurt, and jellies. As for honey, eat it sparingly, and only if it hasn’t been refined. If you wish you may sweeten your foods and cold drinks with Stevia; as for teas and other hot drinks, you may use Licorice or Carob powder.
Avoid high-glycemic and refined foods
Stay away from high-glycemic foods, such as white bread, refined sugar, jam, dry cereals, white rice, white flour, white pasta, cookies, etc. Don’t eat highly refined, processed foods, as all their valuable minerals and vitamins have been stripped away, and they are likely to contain many chemical additives. Avoid adding chemically processed sauces or salad dressings to your food, such as mayonnaise, as these are often very high in sugar as well as chemical additives. Stay away from artificial sweeteners, as they affect negatively your metabolism and your health in general.
Reduce consumption of bread
Reduce your consumption of bread, as it is the wrong type of carbohydrate, which is normally full of chemical additives; unless, of course, you have the necessary equipment to make your own bread, using wholemeal flour. If you cannot make your own bread, eat Ryvita biscuits instead.
Use salt sparingly, and only the unrefined mineral-rich Celtic salt type.
Don’t eat foods containing chemical additives; especially if these additives are Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), Hydrolysed Vegetable Proteins (HVP), and Aspartame, as they have been shown to contribute to or aggravate more than forty illnesses.
Reduce intake of cow's milk and cheeses
Give a miss to cows’ milk, and drastically reduce the intake of processed cheeses, sweetened yoghurt and other dairy products. Use rice, soy or almond milk instead.
Use butter instead of margarine
Use butter instead of margarine, as this contains dangerous trans-fats.
Drink plenty of water
Drink at least four to six glasses of purified water per day. However, don’t drink it with your meals, but in between them. Drink a glass of water with a squeeze of lemon as soon as you get up each morning. This is a great detoxifying practice. Avoid commercial fruit juices, as they have been pasteurized, and contain too much sugar and chemical additives.
Don't mix carbohydrates with proteins
Don’t eat carbohydrates with proteins, as the former require an alkaline juice for proper digestion, while the latter require an acid juice; and the two neutralize each other. This neutralization has a negative effect on the digestion of these two foods.
Don't mix fruits and vegetables
Don’t eat fruits and vegetables at the same time, as generally the former have an acid effect, whereas the latter tend to be alkaline. Therefore, it isn’t a good idea to mix fruit juice with vegetable juice. Eat your fruit by itself and on an empty stomach, don’t eat it immediately before, during, or soon after a meal.
Give up alchol and caffeine
Give up alcohol and caffeine, as they raise your blood-sugar and insulin levels, contribute to the storage of glucose as fat, trigger fatigue and provoke mood swings. Also, reduce your intake of tea, and drink only the green variety.
Get enough zinc
If you are a strict vegetarian make sure you get enough zinc from plant sources, as for example: beans, chickpeas, lentils, peanuts, cashews, brazil nuts, kelp, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, whole grains, and yeast. Also, you can obtain plenty of iron from apricots, prunes, kelp, beans, dulse, grains, pine nuts, sunflower seeds, steamed coked spinach, stinging nettles, pumpkin seeds, and wheat germ.
Chew your food
Make sure you chew your food thoroughly, as digestion (especially of carbohydrates) starts in the mouth.
Don't skip breakfast
Eat like a king at breakfast, like a prince at lunch, and like a pauper at dinner. Don’t eat too much at any meal, and make sure you don’t eat too late at night. Eat only very light meals when you feel unwell, depressed, worried, angry, stressed, or over-preoccupied.
Whatever you do, don’t smoke and keep away from smokers and smoke-polluted places.
Make sure you get your daily supply of oxygen by avoiding as much as possible over-polluted places, and/or by doing regular physical exercise, as well as breathing exercises.
Last, but not least, remember to detoxify your liver once a year.
