The plan for you is step by step. Originally I had coached folks week by week, stacking the changes upon each other. If this is too rapid, adjust your changes as needed. The point is to make successful shifts in eventual mastery, not to add pressure to you already busy lives. It may take six months just to get the gallon of water in daily. Add the next shift to the one already in place. By the end of the program, you will feel great and look great. You may have more energy to do more and serve humanity more. It really is a win-win situation!
Step 1, increase water to a gallon a day.
Step2, give up all wheat products and still drink a gallon of water a day.
Step 3, give up all grains and still drink a gallon of water a day.
Step 4, reduce fruits to 1-2 times a day, always keeping previous changes.
Step 5, reduce fruits to 1-2 servings a week.
Step 6, change your oils to only healthy fats I write about in my books. No consumption of industrial seed oils or hydrogenated oils.
Step 7, no more added sugar, in any form: no honey or agave or date sugar, etc. Buy Lakanto or XYLA on Amazon.com or Whole Foods.
Step 8, purchase raw dairy and pastured eggs if you regularly consume them.
Step 9, give up beans and legumes.
Step 10, write to me and share your experience! I know you can do this. The reasons and science behind my guidelines in the protocol are in my books.
In all of the steps pay particular attention to how you feel rather than how you look. Sometimes flu and cold symptoms, headaches, and general fatigue may plague you. You may suffer acne or a rash for a little while. These are symptoms of the body detoxifying as it gets used to the cleaner fuel you are providing it with. Fear not, and keep moving forward with the process. Moving toward superior health can spur us on to our true superior self. Just think about how clear, attentive, helpful, and generous we can be to others we love when we have taken care of our own essential biochemical needs.
Practice, practice, practice. Eventually your eating choices and preparation of meals will shift to a healthier format and it will become easier. For me, it has not yet become entirely easy. It requires becoming present and conscious at each meal. Remember that you do not have to feel alone. Surround yourself with like-minded individuals. Seek out thought provoking materials to stimulate your journey and spark continued interest in your superior self.
