Chill Out and Get Healthy is all about eating clean, organic and nondead foods. The steps of the plan include eating healthy, sleeping seven to eight hours each night, taking some chill out time for at least five minutes per day and exercising on a regular basis. The book, the author explains why sugar is evil, soy sucks and bigger is not better. One piece of advice for choosing your foods is if it sits on your counter or the bottom of your purse and doesn’t go bad, don’t eat it. This means that you need to eat live – nondead foods, not deal meal replacement foods. Some of the things you need to avoid are sugar, soy, white flour, or anything white. This doesn’t include the natural sugars that occur in foods like fruit. For your dairy, you should not have more than one slice of organic cheese per day or a couple ounces of organic, full-fat milk. Instead of dairy, the book lists several ways to get calcium through clean fruits and vegetables if that is a concern.
The foods you can eat on this program include 100 percent organic fruits, vegetables, meat, poultry nuts, milk, fruit juice and dried fruits. There are some foods that can be non-organic and a list is provided. For corn, you must make sure it is not genetically modified. Various types of seafood are also ok with the exception of shark, swordfish and tilefish. These should be avoided because if their high mercury content. You should also eat fat in the form of nuts, avocados, flaxseeds, olive oil, eggs, meat, coconut oil, ghee, organic butter and fatty fish like salmon. You are encouraged to eat all types of meat like chicken, lamb, duck, beef, pork, turkey, buffalo, elk, venison and others you might think of. Another piece of critical advice is to eat foods that are in season and locally grown. This enables you to eat foods that are in season in your part of the country. Below is a sample menu for one day of eating a nondead diet.
- Breakfast: two scrambled eggs with tomato and fresh basil; one piece of bacon and a slice of whole-grain bread
- Lunch: mixed mesclun-green salad with wild salmon, onions, green beans, olives, olive oil and vinegar
- Snack: a banana and two handfuls of almonds or cashews
- Dinner: baked chicken with fresh herbs, sautéed kale with garlic and a sweet potato with a touch of butter
For those that are concerned that they have social events that involve eating out, Raupp states to stick with the eating of nondead foods 80 to 85 percent of the time. That equates to about four dinners per week that might deviate slightly from the plan. Of course you are encouraged to stay within reason, but there is some flexibility involved.EXERCISE
