The Virgin Diet

jj-virgin

I’m very skeptic to the word “diet,” especially books with the word. But, recently I was very surprised and impressed when I listened to J.J. Virgin, the author of The Virgin Diet.

The Virgin Diet is an elimination diet. For three weeks you will take away 100% of the seven below:

  • Eggs
  • Soy
  • Corn
  • Peanuts
  • Sugar/sweeteners
  • Dairy
  • Gluten

No snacking is allowed. Often the food you crave the most is the worst for you. Don’t forget to drink a lot of filtered water.
How are you feeling after three weeks without the above? Hopefully much better. Slowly introduce the above foods again. I would not introduce sugar/artificial sweeteners, gluten, corn, soy and peanuts again though. After every meal you should feel energized.

It’s fairly easy to do and it’s inexpensive; a great way to find what is causing you issues.

Here is our shopping list to help with the food planning (exclude eggs and dairy).

Good luck!

HOW TO GET WELL FROM…EVERYTHING, PROBABLY!

gluten

By now, you know that I love success stories and one of my favorite Facebook pages is Wheat Belly. When they recently asked their amazing followers if they had experienced a reduction or reversal of any AUTOIMMUNE CONDITION with wheat/grain elimination?

They got these amazing comments:

I have lowered my thyroid antibodies from over 400 to 298 after one year wheat free. Keeping in mind that I have had Hashimoto’s for 20 Years and didn’t know about my wheat allergy, a 25% reduction is a decent improvement in only one year. Down 85 pounds now…

Have you found your perfect diet?

Have you found your perfect diet yet? Which should be for the rest of your life so that’s why I often prefer to call it “lifestyle” instead of a diet. Paleo, LCHF (low carb healthy fat)………

This is a laid-back conversation between Dave Asprey, the Bulletproof Executive and Abel James, the Fat-burning Man. Two “high performance” men discussing food and health. As they say:

If you are not thinking, then you will be doing it wrong

If you are on Paleo and start to eat processed foods marked “Paleo”, think again. It´s still processed food! Don’t be fooled into eat highly processed foods marked “low carb”, “Paleo”, “Vegan”, or even “gluten free.”

What’s the perfect diet for you?

CARB-LOADED – A CULTURE DYING TO EAT

This is a trailer of another new film about carbs called Carb-loaded – a culture dying to eat.

I think it is high time we start talking about TOFI’s; people that are thin on the outside and fat (and often diabetic) on the inside. And, the danger of having elevated blood sugar (and insulin) levels around the clock.

Do you eat every five hours because you’re hungry again or after two and a half hours because your blood sugar is getting low?

How to heal your gut naturally

Watch this very informative video about how to heal your gut naturally.

When I did the post about poop I wrote about the importance of healing the gut; to be able to reverse many diseases and not create new ones. If you know that you have Celiac disease or Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity and haven’t healed and sealed the gut completely, it is very important to do so. (more…)

My years with Lyme disease (Borrelia burgdorferi)

lyme

You have probably guessed that it is Lyme disease (Borrelia burgdorferi), and co-infections I have, and wrote about in the previous post.

Lyme is spread primarily through the bite of a tic, and dears, mice, birds, and other small animals are hosts for the tics. Some researchers believe that some biting insects such as mosquitoes, fleas, biting flies, and lice may also transmit Lyme. And, that it can also be sexually transmitted, transmitted by a blood transfusion, and transmitted from an infected mother to the baby. (more…)
