Dr. Preddie’s Simple Diet Plan

Before dieting, the body should undergo a fast.  To prepare the fast, eat only raw vegetables and fruits for two days; this will make the fast less of a shock to your body. Your fast will be for seven days.  It should begin on a Sunday and after the two days preparation and conclude on Saturday at sunset.

While on the fast, consume at least eight, 8-ounce glasses of spring water a day, plus pure juices and up to two cups of Herbal Peppermint or Chamomile tea a day.  Dilute all juices with water, adding about one part water to three parts juice.  Do not drink orange or tomato juice and avoid all juices made with sweeteners or other additives.

The best juice to use during your fast is fresh lemon juice.  Add the juice of one lemon to a cup of warm water.  Fresh apple, beets, cabbage, carrot, celery and grape juices are also good.  As far as green drinks, which are made from green leafy vegetables are excellent for detoxification of the body.  Raw cabbage juice is very good for ulcers, cancer, and all colon problems.  Be sure to drink the cabbage juice as soon as it is prepared.  As this juice sits, it loses its vital nutritional contents.

Follow the juice-water and tea fast with a two-day diet of raw fruits and vegetables.  Eating solid cooked foods immediately after fasting can ruin the desired effects of the fast.  Both the size of the stomach and the amount of secreted digestive juices may decrease during fasting.  The first meals after a fast should be frequent and small.

Now that you have finished the fasting program, please consume the following foods only for the next two weeks:

 

      For people who eat meat:

  • Bake or broil organic chicken or turkey
  • Boil, broil or bake fish.
  • Brown rice
  • Fresh, unsweetened fruits, and vegetable juices
  • Fresh fruits (except oranges)
  • Herbal teas (no caffeine)
  • Raw, steamed or broiled vegetables.

For Vegetarians:

  • Tofu
  • Grillers or Veggie burgers
  • Brown rice
  • Fresh unsweetened fruit and vegetable juices
  • Fresh fruits (except oranges)
  • Herbal Teas (no caffeine)
  • Raw, steamed or broiled vegetables

In this fast-paced society, we live in; some people are not taking the time to eat correctly.  Therefore, robbing their bodies of essential nutrients, which is vital for optimal daily functioning.

A proper diet is essential in today’s highly technological society.  Some people are eating the same foods on a daily or weekly basis.  When this is, the case people suffer from food allergies.  Although some people have a reaction soon after ingesting a particular food for the first time, food allergies often develop slowly. Reason being, if you consume the same foods daily, your body eventually develops intolerance to them.  Then, rather than nourishing the body, these foods provoke the digestive system, causing harmful reactions.

The following is a Rotation Diet that will increase your energy, boost your immune system and help to stabilize your weight.

The fundamental principle behind the Rotation Diet is that each type of food is to be consumed only on one out of every four days.  For example, if you eat beans on Monday you will not eat beans again on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.  If you eat a Veggie burger on Friday, you will wait at least until Tuesday before consuming it again. Rotating your foods in this manner will make you feel better, help you to lose weight, thus look better, feel better and prolong your life.
