The very occasional exceptions are buckwheat and quinoa which are not technically grains but, unfortunately, they have many grain like qualities. The answer is to limit your consumption and always exercise moderation. Cutting out grains also includes all the ways we add wheat, corn, rice and other starches to our foods in the form of bran, wheatgerm, modified starch and so on. Again, read the labels.
Do not eat legumes, except for some occasional sprouted legumes. This includes beans of all kinds (black, red, pinto, navy, white, kidney, lima, fava, etc.), peas, chickpeas, lentils, and peanuts. No peanut butter, either. This also includes all forms of soy, soy sauce, miso, tofu, tempeh, edamame and all the many ways we sneak soy into foods (like lecithin).
Do not eat dairy. This includes cow, goat or sheep’s milk and milk products such as cream, cheese (hard or soft), kefir, yogurt (even Greek), and sour cream Use coconut milk, coconut yoghurt and coconut cream It’s the Delicious in Skinny Delicious!
Do not consume carrageenan, MSG, sulphites or any additives whatsoever. If these ingredients or any E numbers appear in any form on the label of your processed food or beverage, do not even touch it!
Sounds tough, does not it? But that’s because we have been conditioned to connect really bad food and sugary sweet flavourings with good times. We get sweets and candy as a reward during childhood and the comforting feeling gets embedded in our behaviour.
Before long we are addicted to all the things that effectively poison us. Take a look around you. Do you see much evidence of happy, healthy people in the local population? Disease incidence and obesity are ballooning. Something’s radically wrong and you are one of the few, lucky ones to know exactly where the problem really lies.
