Do 1Drink lots of good quality water (distilled is arguably best, as are glass bottles as containers) 2Make sure you chew your food and appreciate each mouthful 3Always eat a healthy breakfast (unless you are on an intermittent diet - but more about that later) 4Try to eat fresh, locally sourced, seasonal organic food when possible 5Balance your fruit and vegetables with sufficient protein and healthy fats 6Invest in copper pots, pans and utensils (they have tons of health benefits) 7Start using virgin coconut, olive or avocado oil instead of vegetable or sunflower 8Always sit down to eat and remain seated for a few minutes after you have eaten. Then go and walk 100 steps (ideally outside) and rub your stomach with both hands (right over left) in a clockwise motion 30 times, swap your hands over and do the same but this time anti-clockwise. Then with the palms of both hands, rub your stomach downwards 30 times. It is a Chinese medicine hack! 9Do plan your meals and cook your own food at home 10 Do wash your food before you prepare it 11 If you can grow your own food (and herbs), do (and consume them as quickly as possible because they will be full of life energy! 12 Carefully read the labels on all the ready-made food you buy 13 Keep your vegetables crunchy and always grill instead of fry. Unless it's a healthy stir fry. 14 Try to keep the body slightly alkaline - an easy tip here is lemon juice with water in the morning. You might also like to add a little bit of bicarbonate of soda and Tibetan sea salt 15 Listen to your body - learn to identify the difference between physical hunger and emotional hunger!Don’t 1Don’t eat late at night before you go to bed or when you are angry or emotional 2Don’t eat sugary foods or sweets. Sugar is incredibly bad for you (and highly addictive) 3Don’t eat tinned, processed or junk food (remember – fresh or frozen are better) 4Don’t overeat bread, pasta or grains (basically avoid inflammatory gluten as much as possible) 5Don’t think that brown granary bread will be any better for you than white bread – I find it is often the reverse! 6Avoid sweet fizzy drinks (including diet drinks and energy drinks) or super sweet smoothies or fruit juice 7Don’t do fad or crash diets (although some fasting and detoxing can be good) 8 Don’t overdo the salt (and start using Himalayan sea salt if you haven’t already) 9Don’t overeat much soy (the estrogenic isoflavones play havoc with hormones) 10 Don’t eat too much fruit (fructose is natural sugar – but it's still sugar!) 11 Don’t overdo the inflammatory legumes and beans (they contain high amounts of lectin - which plants use to keep insects away) 12 Don’t eat GMO food (often also now referred to as 'bioengineered food') - in my opinion, there has simply not been enough long-term independent research on them (and let's be honest, nature knows best!) 13 Don’t overdo the tomatoes, peppers and white potatoes (all are deadly nightshade vegetables!) 14 Don’t use margarine (grass-fed Irish butter is best) 15 Don’t eat anything with aspartame, e.g. NutraSweet (oh and avoid Agave Nectar too) P.S. If you still smoke - you really need to think about going back to normal, i.e. living a smoke-free life. As with pretty much everything else, smoking is bad for your digestive system! If you need help, just let me know. I have a 100% success rate in helping people break this habit loop.
