The Diet at a Glance

As long as you focus on these 3 main principles – and eat food that’s clean, whole, and balanced – you can’t go wrong.

1.  Clean:  First, you look for the dish with the smallest number of adulterating additives and hormone-disrupting chemicals.

Remove These Foods:

>Hydrogenated fats

>Refined grains

>High-fructose corn syrup

>Artificial sweeteners

>Artificial coloring and preservatives

>Glutamates

Reduce These Foods:

>Starchy vegetables

>Tropical, dried, and canned fruits

>Excess soy

>Excess alcohol

>Full-fat dairy and fatty meats

>Canned foods

>Caffeine

2.  Whole:  Then you look for foods that came from the ground or had a mother.

Restore These Foods:

>Legumes

>Alliums

>Berries

>Meat and eggs

>Colorful fruits and veggies

>Cruciferous veggies

>Dark-green leafy veggies

>Nuts and seeds

>Dairy

>Whole grains

3.  Balanced:  Finally, you get a healthy balance of protein, fat, carbs, and calories throughout the day.

Rebalance Your Energy:

>Eat breakfast

>Eat every 4 hours

>Don’t eat after 9:00 p.m.

>No carbs at night

>Eat until you’re full

>But not stuffed

>Eat 40% carbs, 30% fat, 30% protein

I know you’re human.

You’re going to have sugar.

You’re going to have chocolate.

But here’s the deal:  Instead of a processed, artificially flavored peanut butter cup with trans fat and high-fructose corn syrup, have a Newman’s Own organic peanut butter cup.

Instead of a huge bowl of sugar-free, nonfat frozen yogurt, loaded with chemicals and artificial sweeteners, have half a cup of organic full-fat ice cream.

If you’re going to have less healthy foods, eat real food and not chemicals.

Scientists are just starting to appreciate how certain hormones, pesticides, and chemicals interact with one another to produce side effects exponentially more dangerous.

Well, luckily for us, high-quality nutrition can have exponential effects, too.

Nature has a powerful way to fight back, a health phenomenon also greater than the sum of its parts, called “food synergy.”

This new field of nutrition has sprung up to study certain foods and patterns that appear to work together to combat disease like cancer, heart disease, and other chronic conditions in a stronger way than individual nutrients could on their own.

But I’ll let you in on a little secret – food synergy is just a fancy way of saying “Eat whole foods.”

Don’t focus on carbs, or protein, or fat – just food.

Whole foods work together to bring out each nutrient’s individual strengths.

By eating more whole foods, you’re inviting more of these natural synergies into your body, where they can work together to optimize your hormones and detox your body.

The special combination of steps – to Remove the hormones, pesticides, and chemicals in conventionally raised foods; to Restore lost nutrients; and to Rebalance your energy in and out – allows you to tap into this food synergy on a daily basis.

All of the plan’s facets work together to bring out these hormone-optimizing foods’ most powerful healing qualities.

And now you’re going to learn how to fit all the pieces of the program together.
