Ten Golden Rules for Great Health
2. Eat small amounts of protein often. Eat approximately every three hours, or when you feel hungry. Rule of thumb is to divide your body weight by 15 to get the number of protein ounces you should eat per day— eat this protein over 3-5 meals.
3. Get your carbohydrates from veggies and fruits- limit grains and sugars. Eat twice as many vegetables as fruits, Juicing is okay, but never juice your fruits– eat them, don’t drink them.
4. Eat real whole food. Don’t eat anything that won’t eventually spoil.
5.Try to eat local, “wild” produce and meats. The higher price is worth its value because of the extra vitamins and minerals you receive. And it tastes better too!
6. Avoid processed foods and artificial sweeteners. Avoid “diet” foods and foods that make health claims. Avoid foods with long ingredient lists and words you can’t pronounce.
7. Eat healthy unrefined natural fats and oils like butter, coconut oil (for cooking) and olive oil (for dressings).
8. Avoid unfermented soy products like soy milk and tofu. Instead, eat fermented soy like miso, tamari and tempeh. Eat plenty of other raw fermented foods like sauerkraut. (From the refrigerated section, not the aisles.)
9. Use unrefined sea salt that hasn’t been bleached white. Our favorite is Redmond’s Real Salt, which we sell in the office!
10. Enjoy your food! Savor it. Eat slowly in a relaxed state, sitting down. Food is a source of joy, not a source of stress. Try to share your mealtime with someone else.
Tara Lambert, BA, CNC Founder, Nutritional Wellness Center
Tara struggled with her health for many years, nearly becoming non-functional. In seeking out the reason for her ill health and a solution, she was diagnosed with a variety of illnesses such as celiac disease, hypoglycemia, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, environmental illness, heavy metal and chemical toxicity, migraine and tension headaches, hormonal imbalances, acne, leaky gut syndrome, adrenal fatigue, Raynaud’s phenomenon, candidiasis, and on and on. She was even repeatedly screened for lupus and rheumatoid arthritis because her entire body chronically hurt!
As her situation worsened, she started looking for real solutions. She spent a small fortune trying nearly every modality in both conventional and alternative medicine.
She was introduced to Nutrition Response Testing® and whole food nutrition. She found it strange and unbelievable because it was very different from anything that she had experienced before. But she got better!
“I learned the difference between traditional nourishing foods and whole food supplements versus faddist so-called ‘health foods’ and synthetic supplements. As a result, I immediately recognized that I had found a solution to my health problems and I had also found my life’s purpose!”
