understand, what we are doing, the
basic protocols we learn together are the foundations that we will
use for a lifetime.
- real food is nutrient
density at its best. there’s no point in obsessing
over supplements when you don’t have the basics of real food
- real food replenishes
years of toxicity and nutrient deficiencies. if you skip eating real food
because you think vegan is “cleaner,” or if you fast without
setting up the right machinery, you miss the
opportunity to replenish nutrients that your body so badly
- we want to slowly build up
the bodies resilience to do the things we want to do
later such as low-carb, cleanse, and strategic fasting.
- real food is detoxifying
in and of itself. real food is void of
the toxins, has all the right things to nourish our bodies, and all
the nutrients to facilitate the detox pathways. there’s no need to go vegan
to clean things up. eating real food is already cleaning
- there is plenty of time to
experiment with low-carb, cleans, and

when starting out, it's all about:
- eating 100% real food.
- eating the right things

- eating the right things at the
right time of day.
when it comes to balance:
- we want a broad spectrum of nutrients over the long-term.

- no dominant carbohydrates for your first meal = no safe
starches, fruits, or sugars.
- no snacking in between your main meals.
- have a little bit of carbohydrates from safe starches and
fruits in the evening.
most of our people do well on 2 or 3 meals per day.
