This diet is primarily designed for economy, distribution and shelf-life. This diet is poor in the delivery of essential nutrients and primarily responsible for the declining health and obesity of the American population. Hunger and cravings are signals of insufficient essential nutrients. The body tries to compensate by volume. That volume exposes you to the aforementioned components. The Western Diet is deadly for cancer survivors and everybody else. . I researched published data to determine the best diet for cancer survivors. I wound up with the “Mediterranean Diet”.I modified it for me because I’m in the process of eliminating dairy and red meat. The Mediterranean Diet is heavy on fish,olive oil (extra virgin), moderate wine consumption, plenty of vegetables and fruits, and whole grains,and of course at least a ½ gallon of water. Note. Processed grains/enriched flours,etc. have the beneficial fiber removed, resulting in empty calories. ‘ The Mediterranean Diet is associated with lower blood pressure, lower blood sugar,and is a significant benefit with regard to cardiovascular disease and cancer. The “Mediterranean Diet” is perfect for an annual one or two month optimizing regimen. It’s designed to satisfy all of your essential nutrient needs, strengthen your immune system, and mitigate some of those inflammatory aches and pains. All pharmaceutical medication is damage control. Optimizing is the way to go, to prevent damage. Remember let quality food be your medicine. All of our clients get their own QR code for free when purchasing an ad. Albemarle Tradewinds April 2015 7
