Requirements for a Healthy Diet


1) No sweeteners (or greatly reduce their use) — This includes honey (too much fructose), table sugar (fructose also, too tightly bound to glucose), high fructose corn syrup (mercury, dangerous levels of fructose), agave nectar (high in fructose), or even stevia (creates insulin response, disrupts male hormones). Fructose tends to damage the liver, cause diabetes, and end up as belly fat. Also undergoes glycation in the body (same chemical reaction involved in browning of food) which leads to rapid aging and dark circles around eyes.

2) Limit fruit intake — stick to berries, avocado, bananas, apples. Don’t gorge on fruit. One apple max per day, but avoid applesauce. Fruits contain fructose.

3) No Cow Dairy — except butter. Goat milk and cheese is okay too. But no cow cheese, sour cream, half-n-half, whipped cream, milk, or ice cream. Cow dairy contains lactose (some are intolerant to it), casein (turns into casomorphin an opiate and contributes to autism, hard to digest), lots of puss (just gross), has homogenized fats that oxidize quicker and are abrasive in the blood stream, and feeds internal candida yeast which contributes to acne and hair loss.

4) No wheat — No bread, crackers, pretzels, bagels, pizza, buns. Wheat is very high in gluten, especially bread with added gluten. Many people are sensitive to gluten without knowing it. Creates allergic reaction that spikes insulin and contributes to rapid weight gain at best, intense stomach cramps with diarrhea and damage to the nervous system and small intestine at worst. In ancient times, wheat was only a few percent gluten and fermented like sourdough before baking to reduce bad elements, today bread is none of these.

5) No high-heat broiling, grilling, or frying meat — These high-heat methods produce carcinogens and advanced glycation end-products that accelerate aging. Browned food accelerates aging and damages health. If necessary to broil steak, better that it be medium-rare. Instead, try to mostly steam, slow-cook, boil, braise, bake, or poach your meats and eggs.

7) Balance your pH (blood acidity or alkalinity) — Include vegetables with every meal especially onions and leafy greens. Avoid pizza, processed meats, pork, junk food, and other foods that increase acidity.

8) Balance your blood sugar — Avoid high glycemic foods, especially fruit juices, soft drinks, white rice, potatoes, and breads.

9) Grains — For grains, eat sprouted brown rice, rolled oatmeal, and maybe steamed millet or quinoa.

10) Meats — Eat fresh chicken and turkey, buffalo, beef, and lamb. Occasionally eat seafood, preferably fresh and wild caught, not farmed or from the atlantic since those contain higher mercury and PCB toxins. Avoid all processed meats.

11) Fats — Use olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil, and butter. Avoid corn, canola, vegetable, peanut, and sunflower oil as your main oils due to their high omega-6 content.

12) Nuts — Get them raw and roast them yourself in coconut oil (because pre-roasted nuts tend to be rancid already). Avoid almonds due to them being highly irradiated and peanuts which are allergenic and can contain mold. Stick to walnuts, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds.

13) Include both fresh and cooked vegetables. Fresh for the lifeforce, cooked for the bio-availability of the nutrients that are otherwise locked away if uncooked. A completely raw vegetable diet is okay for short term fasts or special detoxing periods, but the human body cannot absorb all the nutrients it needs from just raw vegetables, so some of it needs to be cooked too.

14) Go easy with the salt. Too much sodium makes hair fall out and dehydrates the body.

15) Avoid non-fermented soy products. These have estrogen-mimickers that will emasculate men and contribute to breast cancer in women. A little soy-sauce or miso is fine.

16) No vegetarianism for O blood types — It seems people with O blood are not evolutionarily equipped to permanently handle vegetarian diets, as they need dense and rich proteins. Beans are not enough to provide adequate protein (it takes several cans of beans to even equal one steak, for instance). On such meat-free diets they tend to get lethargic and suffer from greater deficiencies. Without common dairy or soy (those are to be avoided) the options for protein are severely limited, and eggs are not good enough since they don’t provide the amount of zinc, B-vitamins, and iron that meats have. Those with A, B, and AB blood do better on vegetarian diets than Type O’s, however.
