BASIC DIET FOR
THE NUTRITIONAL BALANCING PROGRAM
  

(Tradititonal Diet)

Eating a balanced diet is vital for good health.Food provides our bodies with the energy, protein, essential fats, vitamins and minerals to live, grow and function properly.​We need a wide variety of different foods to provide the right amounts of nutrients for good health but not the kind of food that will slow down your engine (body and mind).  

(Tradititonal Diet)

WHY IS NUTRITIONAL BALANCING THE BEST DIET?

Nutritional balancing is a sophisticated, integrated system for healing the body at a very deep level.  It uses specific foods and nutrients to increase the vitality level of the body. 

Further, for people with gut issues, Nutritional Balancing is histamine safe, low carbohydrate, fructose safe and naturally anti-Candida, and has animal fat which is required on a daily basis to heal the gut, feed the brain, and remove excess copper from the body.

The following gives you an idea as to what is involved in the diet, when embarking on the program.​


Meals should be a simple matter based around several cooked, but not overcooked vegetables. 

​Seventy to eighty percent of the diet by volume should be cooked vegetables, eaten several times daily, preferably. 

COOK ALL YOUR VEGETABLES

 

Most vegetables are excellent, with the exception of the nightshade family of vegetables (tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant and all peppers).  These are generally somewhat irritating and less healthful, though they are okay once in a while. 

Root vegetables are particularly good, except red beets, which contain a toxin.  Golden beets are better but it is best to eat them with other vegetables and not on their own. 

Root vegetables are warmer for the body and very nutritious.  Preferably eat one kind of root vegetable at least every day, such as carrots. 

Have a variety of cooked vegetables with at least three-meals every day and a total of about 6 to 9 cups daily.

 

MEATS

While vegetables may be eaten by themselves, you may add some animal quality protein such as: ​

  • Eggs cooked soft (with the yolks runny)

  • Chicken

  • Turkey​​

  • Lamb 

  • Beef

  • Goat

  • ​Pork (Only if you can find a ethical farmer and pastured raised)

 

Try to avoid spicy, complex meals that use too many ingredients and condiments or that are deep fried, over-cooked, raw or that contain odd mixtures of foods.  Simple food is much easier to digest. 
​​

FISH

Fish used to be a prime food source. 

Today, all of it is toxic in mercury and other toxic metals and/or toxic chemicals. Eat only small fish such as sardines, anchovies. 

Eat small fish only. 

​I suggest everyone eat 3 or 4 cans of sardines every week.  The cold water fish, particularly sardines, are excellent sources of omega-3 fatty acids and are excellent for this reason alone.  Sardines, although canned, also are a more complete food since one eats the skin, bones and spinal cord as well. 

 

DAIRY 

If possible, eat only raw dairy products.  These are an excellent source of calcium, omega-3 fatty acids in some cases, and other nutrients. 

​Best kind is full fat raw goat yogurt, raw goat kefir and soft goat cheese. 

Pasteurized, homogenized dairy is not a good food, as this is also processed. 

Avoid all “processed cheese”, “cheese food”, chocolate milk, and other junk dairy products.  Do not cook cheeses, milk, cream and other dairy products.

FRUITS 

Although many doctors recommend it, I find that fruit is not a good food to eat today.  Fruits tend to make the body too cold caused by the sugar, and its mineral content is unbalanced, in my experience. 

So it is best to minimize fruits. 

​An occasional apple or berries are okay, but not needed daily and best avoided. 

​Also avoid or limit all avocado and coconut products such as coconut oil and coconut water, as these also are too cold for the body, as both are tropical fruits.  It does not matter what other benefits these foods may offer.

NUTS, SEEDS & BEANS (LEGUMES) 

Though nutritious, avoid eating a lot of nuts, seeds and beans.  These are too cold to the body causing bloated stomach and other digestive issues.  

You can have the following on a daily basis, which is considered a protein:

 

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons roasted or toasted almond butter

  • 4 tablespoons of hummus or

  • 2 tablespoons of tahini ​

 

Legumes are also allowed on the program but once or twice a week, such as: 
 

  • Lentils

  • Pintos

  • Kidney beans

  • And many others are okay once or twice a week, depending on your oxidation rate. ​

 

Legumes are a cold food and not quite as good as animal proteins such as meats, eggs and raw dairy foods. 

 

GRAINS

Blue corn tortilla chips (or blue corn dippers or blue corn taco shells) are a grain food eaten on the nutritional mineral balancing program.

The corn chips are made out of the starchy vegetable corn, thus are rich in carbohydrate.

Carbohydrate containing foods – including corn chips – break down into glucose sugar molecules during your body's digestion process thus causing digestive issues for some people. If you find yourself having no self-control (eating more blue corn chips than you should), skip them for now.

Otherwise, adults need about six to ten blue corn chips with each meal or about 1 to 2 bags of blue corn tortilla chips per week, assuming that a bag contains about 9 ounces (250 grams) each and assuming you can tolerate grains.

​Blue corn chips are easy to overeat, so count them out.  If you are still hungry, add more vegetables or protein to your diet rather than eating more blue corn chips. 

Other grains that are acceptable on the Traditional Nutritional-Balancing Diet Program are:

  • Amaranth

  • Millet

  • Quinoa

  • Polenta (corn)

  • White basmati rice; however, rice should be eaten occasionally because of its high arsenic content.​

DRINKING WATER 

The best drinking water for most people is spring water. 

The second best is usually carbon-only filtered tap water.  However, avoid all fancy water filters, especially reverse osmosis and other types. 

​Avoid all other water and beverages except mild teas, perhaps.  This means no alkaline waters, no “drinking water” or “purified water”, no reverse osmosis water, or others. 

​It also means no fruit juices, punch, wine, beer or other beverages.  This is very important for proper hydration. 

​One cup of coffee is okay for most people, but not more, and coffee is not highly recommended as it is somewhat toxic and irritating to the digestive tract and coffee tends to be dehydrating.

Do not drink much liquid with meals, but rather drink an hour after meals and up until about 15-30 minutes before each meal.  Avoid drinking a lot in the evening, as it can interfere with your sleep.

Every adult needs at least 3 quarts or 3 liters of drinking water daily, while children need somewhat less.  A good habit is to drink at least 32 ounces of water upon arising. This will start your day properly.

SWEET & SUGAR 

Avoid all sugars in any form and all sweeteners, if possible. 

The best sweeteners are probably stevia and xylitol unless one reacts badly to these. 

For children, do not give them sweets as rewards, as this sets up an improper reward system that will trouble them their entire life.

Also, avoid juicing except for 10-12 ounces daily of carrot juice, if you can tolerate it, and perhaps one or two ounces of wheat grass juice as an alternative. 

​More juices tend to be too cold for the body and tend to upset the stomach.

Also avoid all fruit smoothies, protein powders and drinks, which are not good food combinations and often upset digestion. 

ALCOHOL 

Alcohol is often irritable to the digestive system and can damage the brain and the liver.

​Although it is recommended by many health practitioners especially red wine, it is best to avoid alcohol and wine at all costs if you so wish in having a life without diseases and remain youthful.

SUMMARY OF FOODS TO LIMIT OR AVOID ENTIRELY 

  • Avoid all extreme diets such as vegetarian, raw foods, “fit for life” and others. 

  • Also limit or avoid all pig products such as pork, ham and bacon, as they can all harbor dangerous parasite eggs, even if well-cooked. (If you can find pork that is organic and pasture raised, you can eat it once a week, but make sure the pork is coming from an ethical farmer). 

  • Avoid fermented foods, except for sauerkraut, yogurt, kefir and Miso.

  • All fruit, including nightshade vegetables

  • Also avoid all wheat products, as wheat has been hybridized and genetically altered so much that it is no longer wholesome in any form at all, even organically grown whole wheat.

  • Most bread and pastries are horrible concoctions and best avoided as well. 

  • If you want pasta, eat pasta made from rice and quinoa.
