What to Eat, What Not To.


Meats - Beef, pork, lamb, goat, fish, shellfish, chicken, turkey, duck,
wild game, eggs. Avoid grain fed livestock if you can afford it.

Vegetables - Look this word up if you do not know. Eat a lot, eat a variety, and eat colorful ones

Fruits - See vegetables.

Nuts - Almonds, pecans, brazil nuts, hazelnuts, cashews, pistachios, walnuts

Drinks - Water mostly, some black coffee, some red wine, some unsweetened teas.

Herbs and Spices - These add a ton of flavor and micronutrients

Cook with water, olive oil, butter, or lard


Grains - Wheat (bread, pasta, cereals, snack chips, etc.), Rice, Corn, Soybeans

Sweeteners - Sugar, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, all artificial sweeteners

Vegetable Oils

Dairy (some may tolerate dairy products but a majority have problems)

Thanx to Marks Daily Apple for his food pyramid.

This sounds very different than most are used to and it can be difficult at first. Take your time and wheen yourself away from the stuff on the DO NOT EAT list. Can you cheat? Sure but for true effectiveness try to comply 80% of the time or better. The more strict you are, the better off you will be.

Make sure that when you fry that fatty duck in a pan, you coat with lard first so that it doesn't stick. then drizzle some oil and water on top and watch the fats separate. sounds like a good meal to me!

Not sure why you say not to eat soy and artificial sweetners, considering that there is no scientific basis for making such a claim. Many studies have been done and they have shown no adverse effects from foods made from soy or artificial sweetners. I'd also question your claim about most people having problems with dairy. Where is your evidence?
