90DLC: eating habits

I will be posting meal recipes, but here is a breakdown of the 90DLC diet:

Eat little and often:  
no fasting 

Don't cook every meal:  
you lose nutrients in cooking foods.

To Maintain Energy Levels: 

Eat carbohydrates in the morning/afternoon and proteins in the afternoon/evening:

Carbohydrates that are beneficial:
  • OATS
  • FRUIT
  • VEGETABLES
  • POTATOES
  • YAMS
  • BROWN RICE
  • LENTILS
  • QUINOA
Carbohydrates to avoid:
  • Wheat and gluten based products, especially the whites, white bread, white rice, white pasta etc.
  • Processed breakfast cereals
  • Processed fruit juices
Proteins that are beneficial:
  • FISH AND SEAFOOD
  • EGGS
  • GOAT/SHEEP MILK/CHEESE - Fat globules are 5 times smaller, and contain more nutrients, than cow based products and are therefore easier to digest.
  • BEANS
  • NUTS
  • SEEDS
  • YOGURT
  • WHEY
Balance Acidic Foods with Alkaline Foods: 

An overly acidic diet will result in illness and a weakened immune system. Introduce elements of both lists into your meals leaning toward the alkaline:

Acidic Foods:
  • PROCESSED FRUIT JUICES
  • PROCESSED/CANNED FOODS
  • CORN
  • LENTILS
  • OLIVES
  • BEANS
  • CASHEWS, PEANUTS, WALNUTS
  • SALMON, TUNA, SHRIMP, SHELLFISH
  • COCOA, COFFEE
Alkaline Foods:
  • GREENS
  • GREEN JUICE OR FRESHLY JUICED FRUITS.
  • GARLIC
  • EGG PLANT
  • CARROTS
  • CELERY
  • SEA VEGETABLES
  • PEPPERS
  • ONIONS
  • EDIBLE FLOWERS
  • CAULIFLOWER
  • BEETS
  • Although you would assume that citrus fruits would have an acidifying effect on the body, they actually have an alkalinizing effect in the system: APPLE, APRICOT, AVACADO, BERRIES, COCONUT, DATES, FIGS, GRAPES, GRAPEFRUIT, LEMON, LIME, ORANGE, PEACH, PEAR, PINEAPPLE, RHUBARB, TOMATOES, WATERMELON
  • ALMONDS, CHESTNUTS
  • HERBS AND SPICES
  • WHEY PROTEIN
