1) Don’t mix your protein foods with starch foods. Leave at least two hours between the two if starch is eaten first and longer if protein is eaten first. When eating meat, if necessary, don’t use hydrogenated vegetable oils especially on deep fried foods. Broiled is best and if you fry anything, use expeller pressed coconut oil. Spectrum is one that carries this.

2) Discontinue wheat and sugar, especially the wheat. You can replace the wheat with spelt or millet and the sugar with fruit or Canadian maple syrup. If you are not over weight, eat dried fruit…has lots of sugar of the good kind. Small problem with this is it is a concentrated food but that can be overcome if you don’t eat any other concentrated food at the same time and keep the portions small.

3) Discontinue all diary products. Switch to rice milk if necessary provided you are not allergic to it.
