|Healthful Eating & Living Suggestions
Drink sufficient fluids: Your weight divided by 2 = ounces per day. Take fluids between meals, using reverse osmosis purified water, unsweetened juices, and herbal beverages. Try liquid Chlorophyll in pure water, it is delicious and refreshing!
A minimum of 50% of your food should be alive: fresh, raw, unprocessed. Dead food cannot build strong bodies. Eat foods in season and foods that can spoil. (But eat them before they spoil, of course!)
Eliminate processed sugars and white flour and any foods that contains these; i.e., read labels. Substitute whole grain foods for white: stone ground whole wheat, brown rice, etc.
Avoid all stimulants: They are very hard on the adrenal glands. (Coffee, cigarettes, chocolate, cola drinks, alcohol, aspirin, black tea -- herbal tea acceptable.)
It is easier on your digestive system if you eat fruit by itself. Fruit digests faster than any other type of food. Starches and proteins do not combine well either.
Eat two-thirds of your daily food intake before mid-afternoon if possible. It is best to use protein in the morning and at noon, not in the evening.
Eliminate fried foods of all kinds: bake, roast, or steam instead. Avoid pork and any product containing pork: lunch meats, hot dogs, ham, bacon, sausage, etc. Experts feel that the parasites in pork are heat-resistant. Do not use aluminum cookware.
Replace table salt with Vegetable Seasoning Broth, Kelp or B-Salt. Table salt -- sodium chloride -- is an imbalanced chemical which can cause health problems.
Replace red meat with fish or fowl whenever possible.
Substitute leaf lettuce: Romaine, red or green leaf, or butter for head lettuce which has very little food value and is toxic in the colon.
Try to add cultured products, natural yogurt & keifer (not sweetened) to your diet to help your digestive system. Also add acidophilus supplements to your regimen to increase friendly bacteria in your intestines and support your immune system.
Take at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise 3 to 4 times a week. 70% of your daily food intake should be selected from alkaline-forming list. 30% from the acid-forming list.
To accomplish this, you may have:
2 starches -- or -- 1 starch
1 protein 2 proteins
Acid - Forming Foods
Alkali - Forming Foods
Fruit juices/except citrus
Fruits & vegetables
*Chlorophyl may be used as a vegetable.
