- Avoid products containing protein powders as they usually contain carcinogens or damaged proteins formed during processing. Likewise, avoid lean meat, skinless poultry, reduced-fat milk and egg whites without the yolks. Consumption of protein without the cofactors occurring in animal fats can lead to deficiencies, especially of vitamin A.

- Avoid canned, sprayed, waxed and irradiated fruits and vegetables. Avoid genetically modified foods (found in most soy, canola and corn products).
- Avoid artificial food additives, especially MSG, hydrolyzed vegetable protein and aspartame, which are neurotoxins. Most soups, sauce and broth mixes and most commercial condiments contain MSG, even if not indicated on the label.

I’m just starting this journey because I do all of the above dietary guideline recommendations and my cholesterol was recently found to be very high. While I’m new to my research, I’ve never believed in “high cholesterol” as a true danger. Wow, there’s so much information.

Do not agree with #7. In fact, that statement is entirely false, humans are much better off without animal products, including protein, in their diet. Per Dr. Caldwell Essestyn and others of the plant-based, whole food movement (and Chef A.J. of L.A.). Drop meat from your diet and your cholesterol will come down.
Human beings evolved eating meat as well as leaves, etc.
Most people over-eat.
Veganism is not “better” than a balanced, moderate diet.
Great website. I was a vegan for 18 years and ended up with disabling ailments. The worst was copper toxicity. Like most vegans i ate tons of avocados, nuts, dried fruits, beans and lentils. I ended up with elevated blood calcium for which I had to get parathyroid scans exposing myself to radiation. I couldn’t even walk around mall because my legs ached so terribly. My chronic fatigue was unbearable. My thyroid was utterly trashed and I am now on synthetic thyroid hormone for life. Over the years when all these physical symptoms were unfolding i never attributed it to my healthy vegan eating. In fact it made me double down and eat more beans and avocados trying to eat “cleaner” All the while the copper was building and wrecking havok. I never knew anything of the important counterweight zinc provides to copper. I am on the road to recovery now. Eating a balanced diet that includes eggs, chicken, fish and beef. Thank goodness for websites like you’re that provide rational advice.

Does aluminum foil leach into foods or into our skin? I don’t use aluminum cookware. I am wanting your opinion of using aluminum oil to bake or store food. Thank you for your time and consideration.
I use parchment paper and then aluminum foil, so it does not directly touch the food.

Was just wondering – does this mean I shouldn’t eat bacon for breakfast or buy salami – even if its from a high quality pasture raised source? I eat bacon and free range eggs for breakfast pretty much every morning but this has me a bit worried?

Hello there! I just made some Russian Custard, a delicious desert for anyone wanting a easy way to get tons of protein in – especially for people on the cabs diet. When I finished making the custard, I had lots of egg whites left over.
What are the pros and cons of eating egg whites?
What do you think of eating the egg whites, then enjoying the yolks later on when I eat the Russian Custard?
