Transition Diet Program - Month 2

By: Ron Lagerquist

You should already be noticing a change in health. The discipline it has taken to get you through the first month will be a blessing in every area of your life, not just in how you eat.

  1. Cut back on or eliminate animal products from your diet. There is a variety of simulated products made from soy that look and taste like meat: soy burgers, soy hot dogs, soy chicken fingers, soy scrambled eggs, soy bacon bits, soy ground beef, and the list goes on and on of textured vegetable protein products available. If you decide to continue to eat meat, we suggest small servings of fish or naturally-raised lean meats, no more than two to three times a week.
    You do not need to eat meat to be healthy. You can receive all your protein needs from the vegetable kingdom. If you become a vegetarian, supplement your diet with a good intake of B12.

  2. Increase your intake of raw foods to 40% of your diet. This will be the most difficult step you will take but the most significant in contributing to health. The standard diet is mostly comprised of cooked foods. We do not realize it until we start trying to make changes. Achieving a 40%, raw-food diet is a major accomplishment but is probably the single most important element in achieving optimum health. Living food—for a living body—from a living God.

  3. Start making your own natural salad dressings. Store-bought salad dressings are pure garbage. We have provided you with a variety of recipes for healthy dressings and vegetable dips which will satisfy the most ferocious fat cravings, but can be indulged in with a clear conscience. Remember, fat is not bad, it is the type of fat we eat that is harmful.

  4. Make your own nut butters. You will be amazed at how delicious they are and the kids will readily accept them, often not even noticing the difference.

  5. Do not overeat on wheat products. Try sprouted breads, heavier pumpernickels and rye breads that are lower in gluten, making them less mucus-forming. Make fruit your mainstay instead of wheat products.

  6. Have a farewell party to coffee, tea, pop and all caffeine products. These can be happily replaced with herbal teas, Sucanat tea, fresh fruit and vegetable juices, broths, dandelion coffee, etc. A healthy body no longer needs the kick start it received from caffeine. You will have a natural energy high all day long.

  7. Change from:
  • Three meals a day to smaller meals and health snacks.
  • Table salt to herbal seasoning.
  • Potatoes to yams.
  • Fried food to steamed or boiled.
  • Meats to fish, TVP, raw nuts, beans and sprouts.
  • Salad dressings to avocado flax seed dressing.
  • Butter to butter replacer.
  • White vinegar to cider vinegar.
  • Eggs to tofu scrambler.
  • Fattening desserts to fruit salads.
  • Coffee to coffee substitute and herbal teas.
  • White sugar to Sucanat, frozen pineapple or apple concentrate or honey.
  • Snack foods to bananas, raisins, raw nuts, dates, dried fruits, and oranges.
  • Tap water to filtered or distilled.
  • Heavy breakfasts to fruits and/or fresh juices.
  • Peanut butter to raw nut butters.
  • White rice to brown rice
  • Wheat products to gluten-free grains, such as quinoa.
