Body Fuel or What Should One Eat?
Zone Eating: 40-30-30 (by calorie)
40 % energy from carbohydrates
30 % from proteins
30 % from fats
Key to the ‘Zone’: Deliver a steady supply throughout the day of glycogen to the brain (brain sugar) for a feeling of alert awareness without undo stress and tiredness. This steady supply comes from 4-6 meals per day and eating meals containing slow release sugars (complex carbs)
How to eat a plate of Zone (40-30-30) food: Do not consume cold beverages. Cold numbs the stomach and prevents enzyme secretion. Before eating, take 3 seconds to think about eating, this will stimulate glands (or thank your hosts). You could take digestive enzymes/bacteria before the meal for help in digestion. Some cultures start with some pickled item, the vinegar helps to start the stomach.
Eat the protein item first; this takes the longest time to digest. Eat greens and veggies next. Lastly consume any starches. Desert can be fruits at least 30 minutes after you have finished the meal but Zone prefers sweets between meals.
For those with low HCL stomach acid (poor digestion) do not eat plant-based proteins, nuts and legumes, with fast absorbing sugars (example, peanut butter and jelly sandwich). The undigested protein can get absorbed into the blood stream with the sugar.
Diet changes or Foods to avoid and what to use as replacement:
“C”s and why they are bad
Corn Syrup- body cannot regulate insulin quick enough to balance the extremely fast absorption of corn syrup into the blood stream. Use Honey or a less processed sweetener.
Carbonic Acid (in carbonated beverages)/ slows down blood’s ability to carry oxygen esp. since the blood begins carrying CO2 away from the stomach. Also creates acidic condition in stomach (ulcers). No replacement.
Caffeine - used as additive/ increases heart rate, increase calcium loss, replacement- ginseng? Avoid Mua Huang/Guarana (found in energy drinks)
Cocoa a.k.a chocolate, may lead to colon cancer. No replacement.
Phosphoric Acid: also in soda. No replacement.
(4 of these are in sodas. Hmmmm?)
Canola Oil (a.k.a. rape seed oil = Canadian oil = CANola OIL/ plant oil from Rapeseed plant. Disturbs natural hormone balance (especially sex organs). Replaced with unrefined oils like coconut, avocado, peanut, sesame, olive, etc.
Charred meat- carcinogen. No replacement.
Cow’s Milk may have rBST a growth hormone that increases milk production up to 20%. Has been linked to obesity and breast cancer. Replace with RAW milk or goat’s milk and reduce overall milk consumption. BTW, Soy milk is really soy juice, not a milk.
Soy Juice- contains plant based plant estrogens. disrupts natural sleep cycle. Induces insomnia. Suppresses male libido.
In addition to avoiding Canola Oil, Avoid all heated oils a.k.a. heated treated oils including: Hydrogenated oils, Margarine, Vegetable oil (Soybean oil), Corn oil.
Why? Processed Oils are heat treated to prevent them from naturally breaking down. This helps stores keep oils on their shelf for years without having to trash. Heat treating involves raising the temperature of the oil(s) to over 450 F which chemically alters the oil and more difficult to break down. When these oils are in the body, they not as easily processed and like to “stick”, just look at pots and pans for residue.
Also, since animal feed is usually mixed with these processed oils for the animals to consume, most animal fat contains the harmful products residual from the heat treating process.
Animal fats includes: Lard, Dairy, Skin, Beef and bacon grease
Find oils that are not heated treated or termed: “unrefined” or “cold-pressed”. If you are worried about not getting enough oil in your diet, (we all need healthy oils to help mobilize the fat vitamins A, D, E, K in the body) use cold pressed olive oil, corn oil, sesame oil, and other unrefined oils. Check with you local health food/ natural foods store.
Stop eating deep-fried foods (oil is dirty) and any oils other than those that are cold pressed. Stop eating microwaved food.
Preservatives: Sodium Benzoate (found in sodas, bottled drinks, soft drinks), BHA, BHT
My basic rule is that if the food is processed by chemical or thermal devices, it is probably stripped of some of the nutrients and/or laced with toxic chemicals. Furthermore, food ‘preservatives’ are to be avoided. By eliminating these toxins you will keep the body systems (digestive, circulatory, lymphatic, endocrine) working smoothly. If it works for you, you'll notice the difference in your emotions. (Emotions are a product of the hormone balance in the body. An imbalance is easily altered by all the hormone disrupters (endocrine) in the environment a.k.a. "DIOXNS") Stable emotions/ feelings/ dispositions means stable hormones which means the diet is balanced.
Organic? The label explains the process of growing food did not use chemicals (inorganic materials) but may use animal waste as fertilizer. A Japanese farming technique "Nature Farming" grows food in a ‘ dead plants as fertilizer’ method. This method says that the plants were only given other plant compost material with no chemicals being used in the food production process.
Why Organic? To minimize known hazards from food (pesticides, herbicides, etc) and emphasizes support of local farmers, organic foods address both issues.
Toxins in the body can slow down, over stimulate or inhibit body processes. Where are toxins found?
Inorganic: man made chemicals
Organic: processed material that the body cannot use easily
Remove known toxins from diet via Detox agents.
Eliminate existing toxins from
Live Bacteria Cultures and Digestive Enzymes
Gall Bladder/Liver Cleanse
Psyllium Husks “Nature’s broom”
Gallbladder and Liver cleanse at least every 6 months. (see
instructions below ) I have done a GB/Liver cleanse at least twice per year since 2002. Every time I have
seen between 50-200 visible gall stones (they float) except for the
first time I did the flush. I noticed many of my quasi allergies
left (skin issues and food allergies), I have not been flu/fever sick for 3 years ( In the past, every
flu season was terror on my body, I would be sick sometimes twice
in the same season.) and my memory is clearer and I feel like I have
the strength and I feel full of vigor after each cleanse. My skin has definitely
cleared up too. Some of this could also be due to my reduction of
white sugars and elimination of Gluten because I have Celiac.
I do attribute some of my increased energy to the GB cleanse, especially
since it also flushes out the intestines/digestive track too.
If you do the GB cleanse/flush I suggest these additions.
1. On day 2, start you diet back on lite foods like soups. Also, find a good
enzyme additive like those made by "Rainbow Light" to take after
the cleanse and replace the lost enzymes in your diet.
2. When you lie down on your back on night one, pull your right knee into your
chest for about 20 minutes. Also, a little light massage on the GB which is
on the right side just below the rib cage. The Duct of the GB points towards
the esophagus so gently apply an upward motion on the right abdomen.
If you are not willing to try this GB cleanse but want
to try a simple diet alteration, I have found that Daikon radish (a
japanese root regatable, looks like gaint white carrot but tastes like
a radish) shredded at about one tblsp, twice a day for about three
weeks does a wonderful job of breaking down gall stones.

You will need to eliminate a total of 2000 stones before
the liver, gall bladder and bile duct clean enough
to rid you of heavy allergies, Dursitis or upper back
pains (if you have) permanently.

or some longer, but as the remained stones from the
rear travel forward, they give you the same symptoms
again, and you have to repeat the cleanse.
WARNING! You have to be exact in this time frame. The
result will change significantly.
Take supplements to help your body to heal, Especailly
natural healthy bacteria, vitamins A,B,C,E
and minerals especially magnesium and potassium. Also,
use a enzyme replacement like Rainbow Light's ® Advanced Enzyme System
for a few days after the flush.
How it works:
The epson salt acts
as a laxative and prepares the digestive tract for
a smooth elimination of the stones.
The acidic citrus helps dissolves bile and the olive
oil lubricates the stones to eject from the gall bladder
as the bile is secreted.
The fasting speeds up the process and keeps any toxins
of the stones from being absorbed by the colon.

What does the gall bladder do?
The gall bladder stores bile, and releases it in optimum quantities when it is
needed. Without your gall bladder, the liver will STILL produce bile, but
the bile will leak inside you because it will not have a proper place to
What is bile?
The spleen breaks down worn-out red blood cells into bile salts and other substances.
(What a wonderful system is our body! Even worn out blood cells get used!). Bile
salts are normal in the body when in normal amounts.
The liver removes excess bile salts and wastes and sends them to the gall bladder
for storage. The liver is the body's principal chemical plant. If a man built
a plant to perform all the chemical functions one mans' liver could perform,
the plant would cover 500 acres.
While the products are in the gall bladder, water is reabsorbed and so the waste
products get more and more concentrated and form bile.
Bile is needed for 3 things:
1.It neutralizes the acid from the stomach (because bile is very alkaline)
2.It breaks down fats so that they can be digested
3.It is a natural laxative for the colon
Bile is essential in the digestion of fats. When you eat a meal with fats, the
gall bladder releases a LARGE amount of bile to digest the fats. One big problem
when a person has gall bladder surgery is that the body has nowhere to store
bile until it is needed. Therefore, it just drips continually. And when a large
amount is needed to digest a meal with a lot of fat, there is not anywhere enough
bile added to digest it properly.
What are gall stones?
Stones can form anywhere in the body where there is a liquid containing mineral
salts that can be crystallized and where the fluid is held for a while in a hollow
organ, such as the gall bladder.
The stones may be large or small, and sometimes grow together causing extra large
stones. Small stones are often excreted along with the bile and eliminated with
no problem. Larger ones, however, can become lodged in the ducts, causing gall
stone colic, one of the most painful illnesses known. At other times, gall stones
may be silent. In autopsies, examiners often find gall bladders full of gall
stones although the deceased had no complaints about them.
A gall stone is not a true stone. They are rather rubbery and soft. Most gall
stones float. They are mostly green. The size varies from rice grains to golf
balls. Even large gall stones will slip out easily with this gall stone cleanse.
