The Health and Swell Diet

Let's do this. So I realized we never spoke about protein. The reason for that is well, there's not much to talk about. Basically, you are eating too much of it that's for sure. The supplement companies fooled us into thinking we need tons of protein to gain muscle. That's just not true. We need only .4-.6 grams of protein per pound of body weight. And for longevity purposes less is probably better. As for where we get our protein from, ideally you want to get it from pastured meats, wild shellfish, wild fish, nuts, and seeds. A2 dairy is also okay. But treating meat as a side dish is the best option. Trust me, I've never seen this much muscle growth and I eat about 3-4oz of meat or fish a day. And veggies have protein too by the way. We also didn't talk about fasting. Each level of my diet plan will involve fasting. The health benefits are amazing. And it is sure to help you shred body fat. So if you are ready, let's get into the plan:

Level 1

This plan is designed for those who aren't as concerned with the nitty gritty health benefits of it all. They just want to lose weight. These people are also not looking to alter their diet much.

Foods to avoid

There are no restrictions, just aim to eat clean as much as you can.

Supplements

Omega 3 with high DHA, protein powder (optional)

Fasting

eat for only 8 hours during the day , fast for 16. The easiest way to do this is to eat from 2-8pm but whatever way works for you is fine.

Level 2

This is for those who are serious about improving their health. They want to lose weight but are equally or more concerned about improving their health. The micro biome is taken into huge account here. Therefore the food that you will eat will directly relate to good gut health. There are also some foods that will be restricted in this level (excluding your “cheat meals” which we will discuss at the end of this post .

Restrictions and other notes

As much as possible eat local and seasoned vegetables as this correlates with the seasonal changes of your micro biome

This means less meat in winter, no eggs, no fruit, and tons of fermented foods.

Whereas in the summer you can eat more fruit (great to eat first in morning ) tons of eggs and more meat.

Only 1 avocado per week as although extremely healthy, they are extremely harmful to our environment.

Aim to buy organic or better from local farms who use sustainable farming methods

Aim is to consume 1 litre of olive oil a week.

Other than a glass of red wine, alcohol should be consumed sparingly,save for the real special occasion.

No A1 dairy, nightshades, grains, pseudo grains, all bread (except sourdough), soy, and corn.

Fasting

Fast at least 20 hours once a week, 18 hours twice a week, 16 hours once a week . Every 3 months fast for 2-3 days. Also, eat at the latest 3 hours before bed .

Cheat Meals

They don't exist. If you want to eat something then do it. Just remember that you are strong enough to get back on track the next day. Pro tip though, it you are serious about this plan,then be serious about when you decide to go off it. Don't waste calories on crappy fast food. You can do better than that.
