1. Eat plenty of vegetables, preferably raw, including fresh lemon, grape juice and carrot juice. Do not eat both fruits and vegetables at the same meal. If possible, 50 to 80% of the meal should be eaten raw. Asparagus and garlic possess anti-cancer qualities.
2. Eat fruits generously.
3. Eat grains moderately.
4. Eat nuts and seeds sparingly.
5. Avoid oils, margarine, shortening, greases, and fried foods.
6. Eliminate all animal products from the diet, including meat, milk, cheese, eggs, butter, yogurt, and ice cream.
7. Vegetarianism is preferable. However, if meat and eggs absolutely must be eaten, they should be overcooked to try to kill germs, viruses, bacteria and other microscopic organisms that can damage your health. The meat should also be blotted to remove excess fat that beads up in great yellow droplets upon steaks and burgers which will result in plaque and cholesterol in your body.

Limit meat consumption, in accordance with the recommendations of the American Heart Association, to two to five times a week, except for objectionable meats such as pork, ham, bacon, sausage, hot dogs, hamburger, canned meat spreads, pressed meats, and canned composite meats such as Spam, which should all be permanently eliminated.
8. Consume mostly whole grain cereals, bread and pastas. Make sure cereal grains are well cooked, usually from two to four hours. Choose cooked grains or vegetables from barley, buckwheat, carrots, corn, millet, oats, potatoes (white or sweet), rice, rye, and wheat. These foods are selected because of their low phenylaline and lysine content. Eat whole grain cereals or quick breads without sugar, baking powder or soda or excessive salt.
9. Eat legumes (beans) five or more times a week. Consume immature legumes, such as field peas or green peas, not more than twice a week, as they are high in phenylalanine and lysine. Select only one at a meal.
10. If you feel compelled to use a sweetener, use honey, molasses, barley malt, maple syrup, or turbinado sugar instead of white sugar, brown sugar or confectioner's sugar. In any case, use these all sparingly.
11. Eat dried fruits moderately.
12. Avoid the third meal of the day. A two-meal plan allows the digestive organs to rest. Two meals a day help the body recover from the heavy work of digestion. Avoid snacking. Do not take sips of drinks or eat food between meals.
13. Eat meals at regular times everyday. Establish regularity and regimentation as far as meal schedule is concerned. The digestive organs should be stimulated only at certain specified intervals so that they can maintain their rhythmical pattern. Therefore, mealtimes should be very regular, with as little variation as possible, and nothing eaten between meals.

Wait five hours between the end of one meal and the beginning of the next. Eat a substantial breakfast and lunch. Supper, if eaten, should consist of only whole grains or fruit.
14. Read labels for irritants, harmful foods and additives, such as vinegar, monosodium glutamate, pepper (black, cayenne, hot), baking powder, soda (sodium bicarbonate), ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, all spice, animal products (whey, sodium caseinate, gelatin, mono- and di-glycerides), mace, and lactose.
15. Omit one to three meals weekly, except if you are underweight.
16. Eat slowly and chew well.
17. Cook grains and legumes thoroughly for at least three hours. Use crock pots for cooking.
18. For creams, spreads, and dips, use cheeses, butters, and sauces made from nuts, potatoes, carrots, tomatoes, onions or other vegetables and seasonings.

Cheese can be harmful. The putrefactive process produces amines, ammonia, irritating fatty acids (butyric, caproic, caprylic, etc.), and lactic acid. These are waste products that irritate the nerves and gastrointestinal tract. Tyramine, a toxic amine produced in cheese, may cause migraine headache. Some amines can interact with the nitrates present in the stomach to form nitrosamine, a cancer-producing agent.
19. Omit liquid foods at meals except on rare occasions. Liquid foods include sodas, juices, water-based soups, and other beverages.
20. Use frozen fruit blended with a little fruit juice as an ice-cream substitute. Shop at health food stores and produce markets.
21. Avoid soft drinks, coffees, teas, medicines, and chocolate. Herb teas and cereal beverages can be consumed.
22. Do not use white bread, buns, melba toast, crackers and saltines, cakes, cookies, white macaroni, spaghetti, white rice, bolted corn meal, cream of wheat, and other refined grain products. Make your own whole grain melba toast and melba waffles. Manufactured crackers, cakes and cookies are unhealthy as they are made with baking soda or powder, eggs, milk, shortening, artificial flavorings and colorings, and sugar.
23. Milk products are not recommended. Milk sensitivity is the most common form of food sensitivity in the United States. Nut milks, soy milk made from soybeans or flour (not commercial soy milks which are heavily sweetened), cheeses made from nuts, flours or vegetables, and sour and sweet creams made from special recipes are recommended. These milks may be used sparingly for cooking and meals.
24. Learn to eat and enjoy foods in their natural, unsweetened state to cultivate the habit of not adding sweeteners to food.
25. Do not eat bread within 24 hours of baking time. Time is required to ensure that the yeast is deactivated and the alcohol is evaporated away.
