The diet consists of 3 well balanced meals with the proper amount of protein, fat, fruit and vegetables. Here is a list of my “YES” foods:
PROTEIN: Bacon, Lean sirloin, Chicken, Turkey, Fish, and Eggs.
FATS: Avocado, Butter, Coconut (butter, fresh flakes, oil, coconut milk), Olives, Olive Oil, Seeds (Pumpkin, Sesame, Sunflower, Pine Nuts), Almonds, Brazil Nuts, Cashews, Macadamia Nuts, Pecans, and Walnuts.
FRUITS : Blackberries, Blueberries, Raspberries, Strawberries, and Apples
VEGIES: Arugula, Asparagus, Beets, Bell peppers, Broccoli, Brussel sprouts, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery, Cucumber, Eggplant, Garlic, Radish, Kale, Lettuce (all types), Mushrooms, Onion, Tomatoes, and Spinach.
SNACKS: One mug of bone broth twice a day! I also added 1 cup of coconut chip flakes with Chamomile tea in the evening (just to fight that sweet tooth urge)! Believe me – you actually look forward to it! It makes you satisfied and sleepy!
There are more items in each category that are okay to buy, however, these are simply foods that I like from each category.
And of course Bone Broth, which I found to be easier to buy and also comparable in price as if you were to make it yourself. There are two options that I found at Whole Foods. The first is Pacific Organic and the second is in the dairy section and is Organic Real Bone Broth. Believe me, it’s not that easy to find and they sell out quickly, so I recommend to buy a few at a time.
