Any time of year can seem to be the WORST time for people to get serious about their health, and yet, for many, it is the BEST time of the year. A very few have the motivation to accomplish DESIRABLE results, hence landing at the top of the new year feeling GREAT! And if you are one of those very few, you are one who ends up making strides while most others choose their demise. That’s why we have NEW YEAR’S resolutions. New Years is behind us and today is the day to begin your Fresh Start because eating light and cutting the sugars pays great dividends.
When we run our Comprehensive Nutritional Analysis, we go through your report of findings with you (Zoom or phone meetings available) and not only go through the results of your testing, but also make an action plan that can start right away. Many times, for health reasons, we ask people to “make a FRESH START” and we have several DIFFERENT FRESH START plans depending on the findings of your testing.
Today, we’re talking about the HIGHER PROTEIN version of our Fresh Start for TWO reasons.
- Many of our patients are athletes
- Many times, for healing, our bodies need a little extra protein
Fresh Start Diet: Higher Protein
Duration: usually 3 to 7 days
This temporary eating program is designed to help take stress off of your digestive tract so as to provide an environment for proper healing and repairing of the digestive tract. The foundation of this diet is the Vegetable Broth. Make up a lot of VEGETABLE BROTH—see recipe below. Drink lots of this broth. It is full of minerals (minerals alkalize your body and they are electrolytes).
At the end of your “Fresh Start Program” please refer to the body of your Comprehensive Nutritional Analysis report and implement those recommendations. Start your customized supplements AFTER you complete your Fresh Start. This allows time for you to receive all of your nutrients and set them up in your am, noon, and pm packets. E-mail us if you did not receive your zip-lock baggies to customize your nutrients. We will get them right out to you.
What to expect from the Fresh Start program
The first day you may feel slight discomfort by having changed your regular mode of eating, but do not allow this to disturb you, for it is natural. About the 3rd or 4th day the bowels and kidneys will begin to move freely. As a result of this cleansing process, you may experience symptoms of headache, perhaps nausea, gas, and a few aches and pains. Do not be alarmed. These symptoms are quite natural and to be expected. About the 5th day you should start to feel a surge of energy.
If you start this program—STICK TO IT! Don’t try it one day then quit. Follow the instructions and you will be surprised at how refreshed you feel at the end of the process.
BREAKFAST FOR EACH OF THE SEVEN DAYS
Fifteen minutes before you are ready to eat breakfast, squeeze the juice of a lemon in a medium glass of hot water and drink it. I like to drink warm water and lemon at night after dinner as well.
JUICE – 8 ounces. You can take more if you desire, but be sure that you take 8 oz. at least.
(Cucumber, Celery, Ginger, Cilantro, coconut water, pinapple, Greens First)
2 hard-boiled eggs.
One-half pound. You may eat more, but be sure to eat at least ½ pound. You can eat only one kind of fruit or you may mix.
Between breakfast and lunch you should drink all the VEGETABLE BROTH you can hold. Also eat fresh, raw vegetables. The more fresh fruits and vegetables you take, in the more thorough the cleansing. (only one fruit per day for insulin resistant and diabetic)
LUNCH FOR EACH OF THE SEVEN DAYS
Drink two cups during the meal. For more protein, drink 1 scoop of OptiCleanse GHI at lunch.
Make a chopped salad of fresh raw vegetables. Use a dressing of oil (I like flax oil because it’s highest in omega 3 fatty acids), lemon juice, vinegar (I like apple cidar vinegar and/or balsamic [1/2 and 1/2]) and a little iodized sea salt. Eat at least EIGHT LEVEL TABLESPOONS or more if you desire. Use four of the vegetables listed below.
Artichokes, Asparagus, Beans, Beets, Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Cucumbers, Celery, Endive, Egg Plant, Fresh Corn, Fresh Green Peas, Green Peppers, Kale, Lettuce, Okra, Onions, Parsley, Parsnips, Pumpkin, Radishes, Rutabagas, Spinach, Squash, Swiss Chard, Tomatoes, Turnips.
Fresh fruit or a vegetable (only one fruit per day for insulin resistant and diabetic)
Between lunch and dinner, drink all the vegetable broth your desire. Eat all the fresh vegetables you want and drink lots of broth. Keep your fruits down per day per our Diabetic Guidelines in your report.
DINNER FOR EACH OF THE SEVEN DAYS
Drink two cups during the meal.
Select 2 or 3 of the different kinds listed previously and sauté’ them with olive or grapeseed oil. Eat a generous helping of each. (NO POTATOES).
One medium slice WHOLE GRAIN BREAD with Earth Balance Spread or Coconut Butter (optional) or avocado – No Butter.
Fresh fruit or hot water with lemon. To add protein, drink 1 scoop of OptiCleanse GHI with dinner for dessert
If you feel hungry after dinner, eat fresh vegetables and drink vegetable broth or water—all you want!
RECIPE FOR VEGETABLE BROTH
Take 7 carrots and 1 small bunch of celery and cut fine. Place in 2 quarts hot water and boil for 15 minutes. Add 1/3 bunch of parsley and a large handful of fresh spinach, cut fine. Boil 10 minutes more. Drain off the broth. Flavor with a pinch of salt, okra, tomatoes, green peppers or garlic. Mix with one quart of organic vegetable juice of your choice or V8 juice (low sodium for high blood pressure – full sodium for athletes). [some people do not do well with the tomato – omitting the tomato is your choice].
The above recipe makes about one day’s supply. You can make more if you desire and place in refrigerator. It can be used hot or cold.
The purpose of this broth is to provide an easy venue for concentrated nutrition and cleansing. Drink lots of it during the seven days. It is full of minerals from the vegetables. “Olive oil to make your face shine” means that your omega 3 fatty acids need to be internally balanced to have clean skin.
