Our Nutritional Focus:

Group 1: 'Go' Foods

These food items you can eat plentifully and are high-water content.

Group 2: 'Easy Does It' Foods

Good for you foods. They need to be moderated.

Group 3: 'Caution' Foods

These are foods to be eaten sparingly.

Group 4: 'Avoid' Foods

Avoid or cut way back on these foods. Disease & body fat producing.

We have been in the natural health and wellness sector for over 40 years in both a clincial setting and with thousands of people at destination health resorts.

Over this time, we have studied, followed and lived many types of dietary preferences and philosophies including:

 

  • vegan
  • vegan raw
  • vegetarian
  • plant based vegan diet with organic chicken, some organic eggs and wild-caught fish
  • keto, paleo and
  • a regular meat and potato and junk food diet in our younger years

Our Conclusions:

  • Vegan: a great cleansing program and wonderful for the planet and the animals, but not a sustainable & nourishing long term dietary program for many people – need to add grains, soy & legumes for variety and calories which may not be the healthiest foods for some people with health issues
  • Vegan raw:  some cooked food is necessary for most people living in colder climates and again, not long term sustainable & nourishing
  • Vegetarian: many people add dairy and plentiful grains to their vegetarian program which are not healthy for some people
  • Paleo: reliance on a meat centered diet, too forming in the body
  • Keto: a higher fat program – therapeutically excellent, but can be too acid-forming long term – ketogenic plans are meat and dairy-heavy, creating a host of other problems
  • A regular meat and potato and junk food diet: why are most people so sick in our society? No mystery.
  • *Plant based vegan diet with organic chicken, some organic eggs and wild-caught fish; low glycemic fruit; occasional Group 3 Foods: healthy long term dietary program with no dairy products – please see chart below

*This is the program we recommend for long-term health maintenance

Our Opinion Based on Years of Experience:

Therapeutic, short term cleansing to enable maximum healing:

1.Green vegetable juicing / plant based vegan program

2. Water fasting for up to 7 days

A Healthy Long-Term Maintenance Dietary Program When You Return Home:

A Plant based vegan diet with organic chicken, some organic eggs (optional) and wild-caught fish: this is a healthy long term dietary program with no red meat, little or no grains, no dairy products and no sugar & observing the following guidelines:

  • Blood sugar / insulin response: imperative to monitor because processed carbohydrates are killers. Some people need also need to watch the consumption of high glycemic foods like tropical fruits, bread and white potatoes.
  • Acid / Alkaline (congestive vs. flow foods): generally, our tissues need to be in a slightly high alkaline range for optimum well-being. A state of chronic metabolic acidosis is inflammatory-producing and thus disease inducing
  • Organic food, locally bought whenever possible: eating close to nature as it was always intended to be
  • Intermittent fasting: an eating pattern that cycles between fasting and eating that helps restore health, lose weight and perhaps live longer

In a nutshell, when you return home, we recommend:

 

  • Organic plant-based, high water content, whole-food, low-carbohydrate foods
  • Little to no grains, beans, legumes and red meat
  • Avoid white sugar and white flour, dairy and all products made with them
  • Practise intermittent fasting regularly

This nutritional approach is much better for people’s health than a low-fat, high carb diet or even a pure keto / paleo diet.

We often refer to this back-to-basics approach as the Hippie Foods approach which is a back to the land revolutionary way of living.
