WHAT TO EAT

Eat ‘real’ food. Plants and Animals. Avoid boxed or packaged meals. Aim for a diet where the bulk of calories comes from seafood and animals, but the physical bulk comes from plants. Don’t be afraid of healthy fat.

HOW TO EAT

Follow traditional recipes and get advice from your grandparents. Eat fermented foods (sauerkraut, kimchi). Eat raw foods (sashimi, ceviche, tartare). Make broths and stocks at home. Cook at low heat, using traditional fats and oils (coconut oil, beef tallow, butter, ghee, olive oil). Eat your colors. Eat time-honored “superfoods”: liver, eggs, seaweed, cold water fish. Enjoy real organic butter and stay hydrated.

WHAT NOT TO EAT

Sugars and processed foods should be avoided at all costs. From table sugar to artificial sweeteners, make no exceptions. Avoid processed foods of the Industrial Age. Don’t choose vegetable oils (canola oil, soybean oil, corn oil, peanut oil). Avoid eating large quantities of seed-based crops such as grains (wheat, corn, barley, oats) and legumes (soy, beans, peanuts).

HOW TO DRINK

Drink water when you wake up, when you exercise, and when you feel thirsty. Drink traditional beverages in moderation, if desired (tea, coffee, wine, alcohol, milk). Avoid industrial beverages (soda, energy drinks, skim milk).

Lead a Healthy Lifestyle

Sleep as much as possible. Move and exercise regularly. Stay on your feet (stand, walk, run). Get regular, moderate sun. Try some hot and cold exposure. Make it meaningful in order to make it an ongoing lifestyle.
