Proteins should be lean and natural. Avoid canned, potted, processed, battered or fried  meats, including lunch meats, sausage, and hot dogs. Eggs can be prepared as scrambled, poached, soft boiled, hard boiled or deviled. Limit cheeses to four (4) ounces or less per serving. Keep soft cheeses to a minimum, as they typically contain more carbohydrates than do hard cheeses. You should also avoid any processed cheeses, such as cheese spreads or canned cheeses.

Buying Tips

  • 100% Grass-Fed and Grass-Finished is optimal. 
  • Grass-fed (grain-finished before slaughter) is a big step down, but is better than conventional meat. 
  • Pastured doesn’t mean anything unless it’s also grass-fed. 
  • Organic meat is better than conventional. . 
  • Extremely lean conventional meats (factory raised) are better than no meat at all. 
  • Aim for organic and pasture raised eggs. In a pinch, eggs can be factory raised because hens filter out many of the toxins that would damage their offspring. 
  • Never, ever eat “omega 3” eggs. 
  • Farmed salmon/fish = bad. You’re better off eating fat-free factory meat
