      I eat two small portions of grass fed organic meat or wild fish 6 days a week, 3 organic brazil nuts and lots of fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables daily. I limit grains, legumes and dairy. I drink one cup of black coffee and one cup of green tea with fresh lemon and one tablespoon of coconut oil daily. I use spices and herbs on cooked vegetables and spices on fresh fruit. I use organic butter and eat organic almonds, cashews, pecans and macadamia nuts several times a week. I eat lots of organic dark green leafy vegetables and avocados several times a week. My body needs meat and I don't feel well when I don't eat meat. Therefore, I eat small portions. Each of us are different.

      Mediterranean diet for me. Chicken ,fish . vegetables, beans, soy products, which I read are bad for you now?, Eliminated all red meats, to avoid animal fats that fuel cancer growth along with sugar..it sucks but you do what you have to do to survive.

      A naturopath I went to years ago never, all her life, ate meat, smoked anything, drank alcohol; always exercised. One day she was diagnosed with brain cancer and died 3 months later.

      We're a fear-based society and folks are making beaucoup bucques off our fears. We need some fat and some protein daily. My DNA has markers for cancer - diet "don't change that none".
