dw: let's not forget that non-organic produce has many pesticides and contaminants that significantly increase the risks to health and decrease any perceived benefits.
overall my diet is quite strict and repetitive (sabrina hates this about me) but it suits me well. of course we start with the no's. no white flour (and now no flour of any kind, due to my sensitive system,) no refined sugar (now i'm actually avoiding all sweeteners, period, except for the occasional glass of rice milk,) no meat except fish, (and especially no red meat,) no dairy whatsoever, (if you must have eggs only do the yolks,) no white rice, (same effect as white flour,) no msg (which is so cleverly hidden with names like "natural flavor" that you basically don't buy anything prepackaged unless it is from an established health food store and is labeled as clean,) no fried foodand no preservatives. now by this point most do not think that there is much left to work with.
what i have every day, based on a constant interchange with the readings, is as follows: two or three huge glasses of water after awakening. wait 45 minutes. cooked millet grains forbreakfast (a complete protein.) wait two and a half hours, drink two or three glasses of water, wait30-45 minutes, thenmixed greens salad with garbanzo beans, shredded carrots, avocado, olives, extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice and tamari for lunch. wait two and a half hours, drink two or three glasses of water, wait 45 minutes,and steamed dark greens for dinner, again with lemon juice, olive oil and tamari - usually a half onion, cabbage and broccoli included - always organic and never inorganic. if required for energy, i.e. if energy is too low, then baked fish can also be a part of lunch or dinner - although from a digestive standpoint it seems to work much better with cooked greens as opposed to raw salad greens. i do have the occasional unsalted brown rice cakes with almond butter for the in-between periods of water and meals - i.e. after water cycles but before meal cycles, or after meals but before water.
two hours after dinner you can have your in-season fruit, remembering that the really sugary ones do more harm than good, such as the bananas, pineapples, mangoes, et cetera. apples should only be eaten as cooked unless you're on a cleansing diet, oranges and citrus are doable, pears are ok at this time of year, melons of all kinds always good, papaya is fine, but again make sure it is organic. if the fruit is one where it needs to be peeled to eat, there is less danger of buying inorganic if your only other choice is starvation. citrus fruits should only be had by themselves and not with other fruits, and if you are a blood type o you are allergic to strawberries.
food combinations catch a lot of people. if you are going to have fish on this diet, you cannot blend it with carbohydrates (grains) in the same meal. you should never combine fruits and vegetables in the same meal. if for some reason you feel you must have dairy, it should only be had by itself - nothing before or after. also important is the water cycle. minimum of 30 minutes without significant water intake before a meal, minimum of two hours without any significant water intake after a meal. the reason is that it rinses away digestive enzymes and you end up with a lot of undigested debris stuck in your colon, which is not fun or healthy. also, you don't end up digesting the food and your body gets weak. the only exception to the water cycle is that you can drink water only 30 minutes after eating fruit, due to the speedy digestion that ensues (unless it is dried fruit - but that can have molds that again are very bad for you.) using enzyme supplements isextremely highly suggested.
going out to eat? don't do it too often (twice a week is plenty) and stick to either health-food store cafe's if possible, or chinese restaurants, hold the rice and the msg. (many sauces have sugar in them as well.) you can find your way around an indian restaurant fairly well, though many dishes have some form of dairy and / or may be uncomfortably spicy (which is detrimental to the body above a certain point.) should you be forced to go to a more mainstream restaurant, tell them that you have "special needs" and you would like the baked fish entree, without butter, and the lightly steamed vegetables on the side, without butter. ask for water only with your meal and don't drink any of it. then pray to god that you'll make it home without a coronary for your obsessive-compulsive behavior with the waitress, your guests and yourself. it's often better just to stay home.
