Good Foods

  • Eggs (soft scrambled in butter, soft boiled or poached) 
  • Fish 
  • Chicken 
  • Pork 
  • Lamb 
  • Beef (rare/medium rare) 
  • Mixed, Salted Nuts (no peanuts) 
  • Beans 
  • Any "gluten-free" carbohydrate (except oatmeal) 
  • Rice, Millet, Pure Buckwheat, Couscous & Quinoa 
  • Corn (Non-GMO)

  • Red wine

Bad Foods

  • Wheat 
  • Barley 
  • Rye 
  • Oats, 
  • Oatmeal – even if it says that it’s gluten-free. 
  • Fried Food – nothing fried! You should boil, broil or bake and never more than medium rare for red meat. 
  • Oils – Oils oxidize when they come into contact with the air (become rancid). 
  • Since almost all oil is continually exposed to some air from the time it is produced, the process of oxidation has begun in even the freshest oil. 
  • Well done red meat; rare or medium-rare is ok. 
  • Any nitrates added to meat – (i.e. deli meats) tell your butcher NO NITRATES or NITRITES! 
  • No carbonated drinks of any kind within one hour before, during or one hour after meals.
  •  Skin of a baked potato (or yam, or sweet potato). If you boil a potato, you can eat the skins.
