20 Healthy Eating Guidelines
Healthy Eating Guidelines #1 – Sickness Or Health
Animal protein – casein - in the form of meat, dairy, eggs, and cheese - is the root cause of all sickness and disease. Plant-based foods are mucus-less, alkaline, revitalizing and healing.
Healthy Eating Guidelines #2 – Protein Needs
A plant-based diet of whole or natural foods can sustain ALL your nutrient requirements inclusive of protein in the form of amino acids. Amazingly, human breast milk contains about 3-5 percent protein, of total nutrients, as the foundation for a fully developed adult body! Do you know of another species beside us humans consuming protein as milk beyond the nurturing stages of infancy?
Healthy Eating Guidelines #3 – Eat Complex Carbohydrates
A true plant-based diet means you consume the complex carbohydrates of wholesome fruits and vegetables, such as bananas, oranges, strawberries, spinach, and broccoli… You eliminate the processed junk foods that are simple refined carbohydrates. Yet, don’t become a junk food vegetarian! Get to know the healthy foods to eat.
Healthy Eating Guidelines #4 – Drugs and Supplements Don’t Cure
Prescribed medications, pharmaceutical drugs and surgery do not cure illnesses nor heal for example the causes of coronary heart disease. Only a diet of healthy wholesome foods can do that. Nor can you purchase health from using supplements to cure the dis-eases of a toxic animal protein-based diet. Supplements can benefit. Yet there are no long-term magic cures in individualized vitamin and mineral supplements.
Sound nutrition rooted in a vegan plant-based diet prevents, halts and reverses disease, anywhere from its inception to the most advanced stage. Even so-called incurable autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and type 1 diabetes can be slowed down into reversal through a plant-based diet of wholesome foods!

Healthy Eating Guidelines #6 – No More Food Deprivation
You no longer have ‘to diet’ and deprive yourself, nor worry about what to eat and portion sizes, nor be a victim of food cravings and excessive overweight. You can and will eat much more food than your animal-protein counterpart and be healthier, lose weight and get rid of all disease symptoms.

Healthy Eating Guidelines #8 – Genes Do Not Exclusively Determine Disease
You are not doomed genetically to experience the scourge of ancestral diseases. Genes do not exclusively determine diseases. The biochemical condition of your bodily environment and your day-to-day dietary habits are catalysts to the predisposition of your genes. Nutrition as food, functions as the on and off switch to genes – good or bad. You cannot not have bad genes. Yet they can remain biochemically dormant indefinitely, through the power of good healthy natural food.
Healthy Eating Guidelines #9 – Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Nutrition plays the key role in reversing diseased conditions and creating improved health. Recognize that there’s only ONE cure for all illnesses.

Refined denatured foods through processing, are stripped of key nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, fiber, trace minerals and antioxidants. They are designed to mimic natural foods. As simple carbohydrates, they have no nutritional value, loaded with food chemical additives and colors, and will wreak havoc with your blood sugar levels. Many people are duped into believing that they are following a plant-based diet with these lifeless artificial “designer foods.”
Healthy Eating Guidelines #14 – A Fish-Based Diet
A fish-based diet will provide you with high levels of cholesterol, saturated fat, excessive protein and possible dosages of mercury and other toxic polychlorinated biphenyls - PCBs.

All food-related oils are liquid concentrated saturated fat, devoid of nutrients and certainly have no fiber. This list includes all vegetable oils – including olive oil, vegetable cooking oil, nut oils, and hydrogenated oils. These oils are used as ingredients in refined manufactured foods and baked goods.

Get your doses of oils in their wholesome state from olives, nuts, seeds, avocadoes, fruits and vegetables.

The blood stream is the river of life. And only a diet of wholesome natural plant-based foods can provide pure grape sugar as glucose and required iron, suitable for perfectly healthy blood composition.

Sugar addiction becomes inevitable and drinking sodas satisfies sugar cravings. So condition yourself to have more water.
