People often ask me, “What do you eat?”
Here is my answer:
One tablespoon of BARLEYGREEN* powder either dry and let it dissolve in my mouth or in a couple ounces of distilled water at room temperature. That is usually all I have until noon! If I do get hungry, then I may eat a piece of juicy fruit later in the morning. Cooked food is an absolute no-no as my body is in cleansing mode until about noon each day. (It is vitally important to me that the BARLEYGREEN powder I use comes from AMERICAN IMAGE MARKETING and that it contains kelp. There are other companies that I have tried but they are not processed the same way. I have tried other products including the BARLEYGREEN caplets, but they do not give the same results).
One tablespoon of BARLEYGREEN powder, as at breakfast. Sometimes I stir my BARLEYGREEN powder into 8 ounces of freshly extracted carrot juice**, which I find especially delicious and extremely nutritious. At least a half hour after the BARLEYGREEN, I prefer an all-raw fruit lunch. A banana, apple, dates, etc. Organic is always best when available. (Sometimes I have a vegetable salad for lunch instead of the fruit). It is important that this be an all raw meal!
One tablespoon of BARLEYGREEN powder either dry or in a couple ounces of distilled water or in carrot juice. Carrot juice must be freshly extracted, never canned, bottled, or frozen. Then, at least 30 minutes after the BARLEYGREEN, I eat a large green vegetable salad of leaf lettuce (never head lettuce), broccoli, cauliflower, celery, carrots, etc. This is usually followed by some cooked food (baked potato, baked sweet potato, brown rice, steamed vegetables, etc.) Later in the evening I often have a glass or two of organic apple juice or a piece of juicy fruit. (My diet consists of approximately 85% raw food and 15% cooked food.)
Exercise is also an essential part of our program. At least one hour of vigorous exercise daily is recommended.
*The reason I supplement my diet with BARLEYGREEN is that our food today is being grown for the most part on deficient soils that often lack all the nutrients my body needs for building new, strong, healthy, vital, vibrant cells. BARLEYGREEN is grown organically and contains the widest spectrum of nutrients available today from a single source that I am aware of. It is also loaded with enzymes. I consider it the single most important food I put in my body each day and always consume at least three tablespoons of it a day. Another AIM product that is very beneficial is Herbal Fiberblend, for added fiber, preventative maintenance of the colon, and insurance against parasite infestations.
**The second most important thing I put in my body each day is freshly extracted carrot juice made from large California juicing carrots in a Champion juicer. I try to drink at least 16 to 24 ounces each day. When I had my colon cancer over 20 years ago, I consumed 32-64 ounces of carrot juice each day. If I had a serious physical problem today I would consume up to eight 8 ounces glasses of carrot juice each day in addition to my three or four tablespoons of BARLEYGREEN. The reason BARLEYGREEN and carrot juice is so important to me is:
- Cooked food has practically no nutritional value.
- A large percentage of the nutrients in raw food are lost in the digestion process, with only 1-35% of nutrients reaching cell level, depending on the health of the digestive system.
- When vegetable juices or BARLEYGREEN is consumed, up to 92% of the nutrients reach cell level. This is because the pulp has been removed and thus no digestion is necessary. Raw vegetable juices are the fastest way to nourish the cells and rebuild the body.
