HOW TO EAT

The Following principles and recommendations should be the basis of a healthy diet: 1 ) Eat a variety of foods. Eating the same foods day after day may cause allergies to develop. Also, eating the same foods will cause “taste fatigue” and encourage overeating. Eating a variety of foods will promote a balance of nutrition. Each food provides specific amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, but no single food provides all of what you need. Rotate your food.
2) Reduce or eliminate wheat. Wheat, a relatively recent agricultural innovation, is eaten in enormous qualities in Western countries. This has led to wheat sensitivity. Particularly to gluten, a major protein component of wheat. Many people have resolved long-standing digestive problems by going off wheat. Gluten is a strong endorphin trigger. Meaning, once you begin eating foods containing gluten, you will keep eating them.
3) Eat your vegetables. Fresh. Organic vegetables contain loads of valuable nutrients and fiber, and are low on the glycemic index. Be careful not to over-cook. Overcooking destroys vitamins, phytochemicals, and other nutrients. Light steaming is the ideal way to cook.
4) Eat colorful food. By eating a variety of naturally colored vegetables, you obtain a broad spectrum of vital nutrients.
5) Drink freshly squeezed vegetable juice. This is just about the healthiest thing you can drink: putting fresh, organic, low-starch vegetables through a juicer. These drinks are high in vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals.
6) Drink tea. Tea is low in acidity and caffeine (1/3-1/4 that of coffee). A study showed that drinking tea reduced the rates of heart attack by 44%. This applies to black and green tea, not herbal tea.
7) Go easy on alcohol. The body processes it like a carb: loads of high-glycemic calories. The rest of the dangers are well known.
8) Eat breakfast and eat frequently. Don’t skip breakfast. People who do consume 44% more calories during the day than those who eat breakfast. Five small meals are far superior than three big ones. Keeps blood sugar balanced, consume less overall calories.
9) Avoid unhealthy snacks. Typical snack foods are high in fats and sugar which trigger the appetite center, leading to cravings and continuous eating.
10) Plan ahead. Take healthy snacks with you during the day. Take your own sweeter with you (naturlose, stevia).
11 ) Take supplements. You can’t get all the vitamins and minerals you need by eating processed food made from soil depleted of its nutrients. Mega-doses are required.
12) Everything in moderation. Don’t get discouraged if you slip on your diet. Stand up, brush yourself off, and continue.
13) Be aware: sugar is everywhere. Look out for hidden forma of sugar: fructose, sucrose, glucose, maltose, matodextrin, honey, molasses, maple syrup, sucanat, amasake, and high fructose corn syrup.
