Limited Carb Diet


LIMITED CARB DIET

 

FIRST STEP Duration: 14 - 21 days

(Children, nursing or pregnant women begin diet using the SECOND STEP)

 

HEALTHY FOODS TO EAT

Vegetables: broccoli, carrots, cucumber, celery, green beans, squash, salads, freshly made vegetable juice, onions, garlic, beets, cabbage, spinach, bell pepper, seaweed, asparagus, olives, etc.

  • Vegetables may be fresh or frozen; plain or steamed. Try to avoid canned vegetables.
  • Freshly-made veggie juice - not required, but it's very healthy and adds some variety to your food selections
  • No condiments such as salad dressings or mayonnaise. Olive oil, lemon juice, and spices are fine.
  • No potatoes or corn
  • No mushrooms
  • No soy foods
  • No bread

Fruit: fresh coconut, berries, grapefruit, tomatoes, green apples, pomegranates (fresh), lemons, limes, avocado. Two to three servings per day, maximum.

Nuts: almonds, pecans, cashews, walnuts, hazelnuts

  • Plain nuts are best, but they may be dry roasted and/or salted. You can dry roast and salt them at home as well.
  • Avoid nuts roasted in peanut oil
  • No peanuts or pistachios

Protein: meat (especially grass-fed), eggs, chicken, fish (wild, or ocean fish), plain yogurt, wild meats (not corn-supplemented)

Sweeteners: stevia, honey, xylitol (hard-wood tree xylitol), agave nectar

Beverages: filtered/purified water, green tea, herbal tea

  • Do not drink milk or fruit juice

Cooking oils: olive oil, grape seed oil, macadamia nut oil. Use butter instead of margarine or other substitutes.

SECOND STEP Duration: 14 - 21 days

After the 21st day (Children, nursing and pregnant women should start here)
Choose from among the following and start with 2 - 3 servings per week. Work your way up to 4 - 5 servings per week on the grains. You may have fruits more often. Keep the majority of your food selections from FIRST STEP.

Oatmeal: Oatmeal is best prepared by boiling the rolled or cut oats (i.e., it's best not to use instant oatmeal).

Bread: spelt/yeast-free spelt bread

Other fruits: pears, red apples, kiwi, mango, papaya

  • Be cautious with oranges, melons, and dried fruits, which are quite high in sugar.
  • Regular consumption of fruit juice � even freshly made � should still be avoided. It's always better to eat the fruit.
  • No bananas, which have constant mold problems

Other vegetables: yams (Dioscorea spp.) or sweet potatoes (Ipomoea batatas)

Beans: pintos, black beans, lentils

Pasta: 2 times per week maximum, unless you're a child, active teen or endurance athlete. In all cases, organic pasta is NOT better than conventional pasta and may, in fact, contain higher levels of mycotoxins.

NATREN PROBIOTIC PROTOCOL

During the FIRST STEP, it would be ideal to start on the HEALTHY TRINITY® probiotic - start with 1 capsule every other day or daily.

During the SECOND STEP, for children, it would be ideal to start on the BIFIDO FACTOR® powder: start with 1/4 - 1/2 tsp per day, working up over the first week or two to 3 - 9 tsp per day, by mouth or mixed in food or water.

Adults can continue on the HEALTHY TRINITY or start with 1/2 tsp 1 - 2 times per day of BIFIDO FACTOR, working up to 3 tsp three times per day.

 

FOODS TO AVOID

  • No potatoes or corn
  • No mushrooms
  • No soy foods
  • No milk
  • No bread
  • You might use goat's milk or rice milk for cooking certain recipes, or for making smoothies and protein drinks. Heavy cream may also be used in cooking.
  • Use either egg-white protein, brown rice protein, or pea protein for smoothies or shakes. If you are allergic to eggs, use brown rice protein powder.
  • Children and adults can get plenty of calcium from yogurt, almonds, and green, leafy vegetables, and Vitamin D from cod-liver oil. Children take approximately 1 tsp of cod liver oil per 50 lbs of body weight.
  • Adults: If you work indoors, rarely get outside, or live in the north, then it's a good idea to supplement with 1000IU of Vitamin D3 daily. Carlson's® and Nordic Naturals® make wonderful, flavored cod-live oil.

    If you drink coffee, keep it to a minimum and avoid a lot of the sweeteners that are added to some of the specialty coffees. Caffeinated espressos made from an espresso machine or Moka brewer contains the lowest amount of naturally-occurring mycotoxins. Green tea would be a healthier alternative, overall.
