Stretch receptors respond to bulky foods like a lot of organic
mixed green salad, brocolli, green beans, cauliflower, artichokes, tomato, olives, ochra, squash, zucchini, asparagus, celery,
mushrooms, hearts of palm every day. Your salad every day should equal the size of 2 baseballs or more. Before eating salad,
soak your salad in one part vinegar and 4 parts water for 2 minutes only and then rinse with water. This will kill the bacteria
often found on salad. Steel -cut oatmeal microwaved with low-cal almond milk is good bulk for the stomach also and will not
raise your blood sugar.
The best oil or fat is "monosaturated" fat found in extra virgin olive oil, grapeseed
oil and evtra virgin organic avocado oil - all available at Walmart. They all have polyphenols which are very good for you.
The highest polyphenol content olive oils are Kirkland, Bertolli, Newman's and Colvita brands. Get 6 tablespoons
of these oils daily and you will be able to shut off your cravings for high glycemic carbs. You can add these oils
to Atkins drinks or to the lowest calorie Almond or Almond-Coconut milk you can find. The avocado oil is basically tastless
- and you won't even notice it in your drink. You should put these oils on your salad but since they fall to the bottom of
the bowl, you may not get your full dose of oils that way.
High glycemic carbs (see a list of them on the next page)
go straight to belly fat and liver fat. Try your best to avoid them as they are as addicting as cocaine!
Eat no more
than 50 grams of carbohydrates per day and no more than 100 grams of protein a day. If you eat more than 100 g of protein
a day, the body will produce carbs in the liver from the extra protein - and you will defeat the purpose of your low carb
diet. 50 g of carb a day and 100 g of protein a day equal only to 600 cal a day – so you must get the extra calories
(660 calories) from fat or oil.
We no longer need be afraid of eating saturated fats in red meat, chicken, pork, dairy
and coconut oil. Only 20 percent of your cholesterol in the blood comes from your diet. If your cholesterol is high, it
is easily controlled with one very safe pill a day. However, red meat or nitrate-containing meat like hot dogs and corned
beef should only be eaten once a week. Also, be cautious about eating fast foods which are often fried with reused oils
which are toxic (especially to pregnant women). Try to drink at least 6 glasses of liquid a day when on this
diet. Stevia is the only artificial sweetener we feel is healthy but it has been shown recently the sweet tastes actually
stimulate insulin production in the body - and insulin is lipogenic (creates fat). If you are diabetic, ask Dr. Gaber which
diabetic medicines must be stopped before this diet is started. We have been able to get several diabetics off insulin or
other diabetes meds completely with this diet.
