Proper Diet Tips

Always make certified organic whole foods the focus of your diet. It may cost a little more, but it is well worth it in terms of quality and the long term benefits to your body.

Organic foods 

  • Choose free-range, grass-fed organic meats
  • Support your local organic or farmers by buying their produce
  • Don’t wait until you are sick before making the switch to organic foods. Look after your body by eating the best quality foods possible, and your body will look after you. 
  • Buy organic because it will last longer 
  • Shop frequently and rotate your foods

Cooked vs Raw 

  • Eat as much raw food as possible These foods should be organic because organic foods are pesticide-free. 
  • Wash produce thoroughly with a non-toxic soap, or soak in vinegar, before preparing.
  • Choose juices that are freshly squeezed rather than canned or bottled juices. Drink juices as soon as they are squeezed.
  • Cook your grass-fed, organic meats as little as you can handle to retain the full nutritional value of the food. Remember that heat kills enzymes and wipes out trace minerals and vitamins.

Processed Food

  • If you cannot pronounce any of the ingredients in a food, don’t eat it.
  • The more money that is spent to market a food product, the worse it generally is for you. 
  • The longer the shelf-life, the worse it is likely to be for you
  • Never eat anything with “hydrogenated” or “partially hydrogenated” oils in it.
  • Avoid all processed foods in general.

Food storage and package 

  • Avoid purchasing drinks in smoky plastic containers. 
  • Store food in glass or ceramic containers. 
  • Never heat plastic containers. 
  • Shop on days that meats and produce arrive from the suppliers.

Genetically Modified Foods 

Don’t purchase GM foods To do this, you must avoid processed foods as they are most likely to have GM ingredients. Many foods specifically say they do NOT contain GMOs - always look for these in preference to unlabeled foods.

Fiber , Colon and detoxification 

Drink lots of water each day and avoid sodas and caffinated drinks such as coffee, tea and Red Bull. Avoid processed foods.  


  • Always purchase organic grains and freshly made grain products such as pasta and breads.
  • Eat only whole-grain products.
  • Make your own cereals and grind your own grains fresh each time you eat them.
  • An important tip is to soak grains for at least 12 hours before eating them, to break down phytic acids. Another benefit of sprouting grains is that it increases the nutrient value.

Animals Birds Eggs Seafood 

  • Always go out of your way to purchase organic free-range meats and eggs, regardless of the cost.
  • If you cannot get organic free-range meats, look for free-range meats. Animals allowed to graze outside of cages eat foods natural to the environment.
  • If you do eat commercially raised meats, trim as much fat off as possible. Fat stores toxins. Bake or grill the meat so the fat can drip off and don’t use the fat in gravy. 
  • Avoid commercially farmed fish whenever possible.
  • Avoid commercial eggs, even the whites. 
  • Read labels - manufacturers use all sorts of fillers in meat products, especially sandwich meats, sausages and spreads. Wheat and other grains are a common ingredient in these types of food.


  •  Buy raw organic dairy products whenever possible.
  • The second best alternative to raw dairy products are certified organic dairy products. These will be hormone and pesticide free and may come from grass-fed animals.
  • If you have allergies to dairy, it is highly probable that you are also intolerant to gluten. Try eliminating both from your diet for two weeks and see if this improves your health.
  • If you can’t get high-quality organic dairy items, avoid eating dairy. There is no need to eat dairy if you eat a variety of high-quality meats and produce.
  • Fat & Oils

  • Go organic, remember fat stores toxins.
  •  Read labels and avoid products with “partially hydrogenated” or “hydrogenated” oils. These fats contain trans-fatty acids which look more like plastics than fats.
  • Foods from a vending machine or with a shelf life more than a few days will probably contain trans-fatty acids. Once again, avoid these.
  • Avoid any supplements that include soy as a carrier oil.
  • Avoid roasted nuts - the high heat denatures the fats.
  • Eat raw nuts and always soak them before eating. Soaking the nuts makes the nutrients more available for your body to use.
  • Minimize deep fried foods.
  • Cook with fats that are stable under high heat, such as coconut oil, palm oil, lard, duck fat, beef tallow and butter - organic of course!
  • Avoid commercial vegetable oils.
  • Avoid fast food restaurants - their meats and oils are low-grade.
  • Mothers, go out of your way to feed your children adequate Omega-3 fatty acids. They are essential to brain development. Good sources include: leafy greens, oily fish, free-range eggs, and walnuts.
  • Focus on getting your fats from whole, unprocessed or minimally processed organic animals, vegetables, nuts and seeds. If it wasn’t here 10,000 years ago, you probably aren’t designed to eat it.


  • Read labels! Become a sugar detective and look out for the suffix –“ose.” Limit your consumption of products containing processed sugars.
  • Look for foods that say, “100% Sugar Free” on the label. However, make sure they do not contain artificial sweeteners.
  • Be wary of the term “natural” as it does not necessarily mean the product is good for you.
  • Avoid all sweet drinks. Sodas and sports drinks are loaded with sweeteners, artificial colors, flavors and preservatives and are non-foods.
  • Avoid artificial sweeteners. Stevia is a good natural alternative.
  • Use in-season fruits and berries to sweeten your foods. During the winter you can use dried fruits. Root vegetables such as yams, carrots or beet roots can also be good sweet alternatives.
  • Salt 

  • Look for cubed shape salt. This is the shape of naturally dried sea-salt.
  • Avoid regular table-salt.
  • Salt your food and/or water, to taste, with high-quality unprocessed sea-salt.
  • Sea salt in a bath is very useful to pull toxins out of the body and can also be good if you have abrasions or scrapes.
  • Water

  • Use a whole-house filtration system.
  • If it is on your skin, you are drinking it! Don’t bathe in chlorinated water.
  • Each day drink half your body weight in ounces of water, regardless of whatever else you drink. If you weigh 150 pounds, you would needs to drink 75 ounces (about 10 cups) of water. A 100 kg person would need to drink about 3 liters.
  • Try adding a pinch of high-quality sea-salt, or a few drops of essential oils, such as lemon or peppermint to flavor your water.
  • Avoid soft water. Distilled water is good for detoxification, but not long-term drinking, as it will leech essential nutrients from your body.
  • Drink high-quality bottled water if you do not have a good filtration system. Look for a TDS (total dissolved solids) content of at least 300 mg/L. Glass bottles are preferable to plastic.
  • Check the source of your bottled and household water.
  • Store water in dark cool locations. 
  • Water is best consumed at room temperature.
  • Drink 2 glasses of water at least 15 minutes before eating. This will lubricate the gut wall and release digestive enzymes. Don’t drink too much while eating as this may dilute your digestive enzymes.

Microwave Ovens

  • Avoid eating anything that has been heated in a microwave oven, even water. 
  • If you are around a microwave, stay several feet away from it when it is in use.
