Our Healthy Diet Plan – What we are doing
Remember: We went to this extreme for my kids who have food allergies – just discovered by a special type of food testing. The benefits have been surprising. My son’s headaches have been reduced; my daughter’s acne is disappearing; I have lost weight and my sinuses are clearer.
Disclaimer: I am not a nutritionist or play one on TV. I have no medical background. I am just sharing what we are doing and do not claim that you will have the same results.
If you suspect food allergies, give this a try for at least 4 weeks and then add a potential allergic food to see how you react.
Here are the major foods we are off:
- Gluten free
- Soy free
- Dairy free
- Peanut free
- MSG free
Here are the other foods we are off:
- Tomatoes (Doug and I are having tomatoes on salads)
Here is the recommendation of our nutritionist:
Every meal have one serving of protein and two servings of vegetables.
The fresh vegetables are best; slightly steamed are second; frozen third in value.
Drink water – take your weight and divide by 2 and that is the number of ounces of water you should drink each day.
Carbohydrates – small serving 1-2 times a day
NOTE: Serving size: roughly what fits in the palm of your hand
What we do eat:
Breakfast: Scrambled eggs or left overs from dinner
Lunch: large salad with protein (nuts or meat)
Dinner: Meat, 2 vegetables and a carb (brown rice or quinoa)
Snack: Nuts, fruit or veggies
Treat: muffins or pancakes made with special baking mix (Pamela’s —>)
(1-3 times a week/not every day)
