"The next best protein comes from fowl, because the fat of the bird is on the outside and not marbled into the meat. Even though this is saturated fat, by removing the skin from the meat you still can have a very lean protein meal. Obviously the worst fats and protein come from our red meats and dairy products. If you are going to eat red meat, at least eat the leanest cut you can. You should avoid dairy products except for low-fat cottage cheese, milk, and egg whites. If you are going to eat eggs, try to get range-fed chicken eggs, which contain omega-3 fatty acids."

"Their hunting-and-gathering behaviors would also have made the meat they consumed far different in composition from the domesticated meats we now consume. Opposite of our grain-fed animals that are high in fat, the meats of our ancestors would have been taken from hunted game that was lean, protein-dense, and low in saturated fats. And since human groups were never far from waterways or coasts, and much migration is likely to have occurred along rivers and coastlines, our ancestors would have had a relatively high intake of fish and other aquatic foods."

"Other meat tenderizers may work, provided the active ingredients include chymopapain, an enzyme that breaks down protein in meats—and in bee venom. • Fragrant, Oily Prevention If you're the type of person that insects always seem to favor, consider using a natural, homemade repellent, especially if you're already recovering from stings or bites received earlier in the week. (This will also work in a pinch on vacation.) Using three parts almond oil as a base, add one part essential oil of either citronella, eucalyptus or lavender."

"Don't trust your eyes when buying packaged meats Misdirection is also a favorite tactic of meat producers. They produce bacon, pep-peroni, ham, sandwich meat, breakfast sausage and other products that use an ingredient called sodium nitrite in order to turn those foods an appealing shade of red. This is also misdirection because it makes the foods look red so that you believe they are fresh and healthy; in fact, sodium nitrite, when consumed by the human body, forms some of the most highly carcinogenic chemical compounds ever recorded in the world of foods and nutrition."

"Even though this is saturated fat, by removing the skin from the meat you still can have a very lean protein meal. Obviously the worst fats and protein come from our red meats and dairy products. If you are going to eat red meat, at least eat the leanest cut you can. You should avoid dairy products except for low-fat cottage cheese, milk, and egg whites. If you are going to eat eggs, try to get range-fed chicken eggs, which contain omega-3 fatty acids. Some of the worst fats that you can eat are the trans-fatty acids. These are called rancid fats because they are so harmful to our bodies."

"Hidden hormones in meat and dairy are a problem. Red meat and dairy contain growth hormones, sex hormones, and antibiotics. (Hormone use is prohibited in poultry and pork.) It is estimated that 90 percent of U.S. livestock is injected with some form of hormone and up to 30 percent of dairy cows receive hormones. In addition, pollutants and pesticides in the animals' food supply (which then becomes stored in the animals' fat) might trigger breast cancer. 2. Women who eat high-fat foods tend to be overweight, and overweight women produce more estrogen and have a higher rate of breast cancer."

"In parentheses, I have included chicken, fish, or meat substitutions. If you decide to use chicken, fish, or meat, prepare it using the least fatty method, such as broiling or boiling. But try the vegan recipes first. You might be pleasantly surprised! I realize that the dishes I offer in the thirty-day meal plan might seem a bit overwhelming to prepare at first. That is why I'm including these easy-to-make entrees. None should take more than thirty minutes to prepare."

"Oats add texture to soup, can replace some portion of the meat in meat loaf or meatballs, are a fine addition to batters and crusts, and can be food-processed into flour for dredging poultry or fish or for use in baking. Bulgur and Couscous Bulgur is a fast-cooking grain with a nutty flavor and meaty texture. It makes a fine breakfast cereal and an excellent addition to salads and stuffings. Try a bulgur pilaf, a bulgur loaf, or add it to pasta sauce or chili. Couscous, which also cooks quickly, is light, fluffy, and a perfect bed for vegetables and meats."

"They lunge for the stick, snatch the meat, and back off. Now and then two will compete for the grab, with the larger one growling or snapping the other away. Yussef shortens the stick until it is only a few inches long. Then he puts it in his mouth, and the hyena's snapping jaws clamp the meat a kiss away from his lips. It is mesmerizing. I have read that the Hararis had a mystical relationship with the hyenas, and something wild is going on here. I find my feet shuffling toward Yussef. He beckons me forward and hands me a stick. I stab a hunk of meat from the bucket and hold it out."

"The L-carnitine concentration in vegetables is approximately 90 percent less than it is in meats, and in cereals it's less than 5 percent (of that in meat). When I encounter vegetarians in my practice, I insist that they consider not only vitamin B12 and coenzyme Q10 supplementation, but L-carnitine as well. There are documented cases of people following strict macrobiotic diets that develop weakness, weight loss, and severe nutritional deficiencies, that evolve into disease states."

"Remember, the word carnitine comes from carnis, meaning flesh or meat. The greatest quantities of L-carnitine are found in mutton from older sheep, followed by lamb, beef, other red meat, and pork. Although carnitine is found in many foods, the quantities in plants are exceedingly small (see Table 5.1). So, vegetarians are, in this regard, "behind the eight ball." Not only do pure vegetarians fail to get enough carnitine in their diet, they may also lack the methionine and lysine needed to synthesize it in their bodies. Modern approaches to carnitine TABLE 5.1."

"As Thomas Jefferson suggested generations ago, meat should be thought of as a supplementary food rather than as a main dish in our diets, and the meats we do consume should be lean, high in protein, and low in saturated fat. Thinking like a hunter-gatherer To understand why such foods as fish, fruits, and vegetables are good for our brains, we need to visualize ourselves along the continuum of human evolution."

"Foods high in B6 include meat, poultry, fish, fruits, vegetables, and grains. Major sources of B12 are meat, poultry, fish, milk, and other dairy products. Dietary Suggestions to Reduce Cardiovascular Risks Eat more fruits and vegetables. Eat more whole grains. Reduce fat intake to 25% to 30% of the diet. Reduce cholesterol intake to less than 300 mg a day. Reduce consumption of egg yolks to three to five per week. Minimize the use of whole milk and its products; use low-fat or nonfat milk products. Avoid red meats; eliminate all cured meats and lunchmeats."

"By dinner on the first day following your fast, you may add back starches, but wait another day before adding heavy protein foods such as meat. Think Slippery Wet Rather than Dry Avoid excessively cooked foods where much of the water is cooked out and the fiber is broken down by the heat. Eat raw, fiber-rich foods as much as possible, and eat foods that are wet versus dry; for example, chips and toast are dry, where as whole grains and vegetables are wet foods."

"If you were born before 1974, you may have been exposed to dieldrin, a pesticide that was found in 96 percent of all meat and 85 percent of all dairy products tested in the United States. If you were born before 2004, you may have been exposed to diazinon, a toxin poisonous to the nervous system and sprayed on lawns and in gardens before its ban. There is reason to believe (and hope) that ultimately, the "pest" problem on farms may be solved not through the use of more potent pesticides but through restoration of optimal mineral balance to the soil in which crops are grown."

"We'll pay a fine," Tonino replied breathlessly, addressing a gaping cavity, the insides of which he was scraping with a menacing blade, "or give him a piece of meat." Later I was invited into his low-ceilinged kitchen for papassini—a Sardinian cookie made with raisins, almonds, and a jam made from cooked wine (saba). Inside, a small fire from a wood burning stove heated the room. Tonino's wife, Giovanna, a heavyset woman with quick, intelligent eyes, sat at the table. She offered us wine. ("No thank you" was not an option.) Tonino may have ruled the butcher shed, but Giovanna ruled the house."

"In 26 of 71 municipalities surveyed, meat is a luxury eaten only during festivals, not more than twice a month. Interestingly for a Mediterranean culture, fish did not figure prominently into the diet." The report went on to say that shepherds drank wine daily. "In the fields, some peasants drink wine; most of them drink wine only at the evening meal, and no more than a quarter bottle." The region's Cannonau grapes endured the harsh Sardinian sun by producing more red pigment to protect from the ultraviolet rays."

"That's right, if your diet is too acid forming (too much meat, dairy, carbohydrates, and sugars), your body will begin leaching calcium from your bones to balance the pH and avoid death. In effect, your body says osteoporosis is preferable to death. How Can We Help? • Change your diet. Follow the guideline laid out in Chapter 6. • In addition, there are several special alkalinizing agents available. Your health food store has alkalinizing teas or drops available. There is a machine from Japan that will "micronize" your water."
- Jon Barron, Lessons from The Miracle Doctors: A Step-by-Step Guide to Optimum Health and Relief from Catastrophic Illness (Get the book.)

"Cut way back on acid-producing foods such as meat, dairy, sugar, soda pop, refined grains, etc. Add alkalinizing foods to your diet. Drink water that has been magnetized. Magnetizing can raise the pH by as much as one full point, depending on the water. One final thought on pH. It really makes sense to test the pH of your saliva on a regular basis as a touchstone of your overall health. You can pick up pH paper specifically designed for this purpose at most health food stores."

"Proteins, such as meat and eggs, are the major builders. Most fruits are aggressive cleansers, while vegetables have both a cleansing and building effect on the body. Ideally, a detoxification diet will feature cleansing foods but contain enough of the building ones to prevent undue discomfort brought on by too rapid a release of toxins. An extreme cleansing or detoxification program such as a water fast (where no food at all is eaten and no beverage consumed other than water), fruit diet, or prolonged juice "fast" is not recommended."

"Great sources of sulfur include not only eggs, high-quality fish and meat, but also an assortment of vegetables: onions, celery, kale, string beans, soybeans, turnips, radishes, and watercress. A third pathway happens with the help of amino acids that the body can manufacture, and those include glycine, glutamine, arginine, taurine, and ornithine. Of these, glycine is the most important for neutralizing toxins. Even though your body can make glycine, it frequently runs out of available glycine."

"Long before it became a part of the Adventist religion, Bates had decided to give up smoking, alcohol, and consuming any meat, coffee, tea, or spices. Imagine: As far back as the 1820s, Bates ran a temperance ship; he wouldn't allow his crew to drink on a voyage across the ocean." Bates was much older than the other early church leaders, yet he was the only one who stayed healthy, Giang continued. "

"Those who ate meat were at twice the risk of getting bladder cancer and a 65 percent increase in the risk of getting ovarian cancer," Fraser said. "For lung cancer, we found an extensive relationship with smoking, which is no surprise, although most Adventists are past smokers if they smoked at all. We naturally have a large percentage of Adventists who never smoked, and when we looked at them, the ones who ate two or more servings of fruit per day had about 70 percent fewer lung cancers than those nonsmokers who ate fruit only once or twice a week." "Tell him about water," Butler prompted."

"If a woman is eating a lot of meat, her body produces more estrogen levels. One way this works is seen in the connection between our diet and the bacteria that live within the intestinal tract. Each of us has about 100 trillion organisms within the intestinal tract. Most medical doctors don't consider the intestinal flora, but they have metabolic activity on par with the liver. The metabolic byproducts are absorbed into the bloodstream partially and influence all aspects of our physiology, including the brain."

"Poultry 6 ounces Skinless breast meat has the lowest fat. Eggs 1 large Boil, scramble, or poach. Black beans 1 cup Combine with rice for a complete protein. Veggie burger 1 parry (See recipe in Chapter 8.) Chickpeas 1 cup Buy canned and heat or soak dry chickpeas for 24 hours before cooking. Dried beans: lima, black-eyed peas, lentils 1 cup Buy canned and heat, or soak dry beans for 24 hours before cooking. Tree nuts: almonds, pecans, walnuts, Brazil nuts V4 CUP Best raw or roasted. Avoid heavily salted or honey-roasted nuts."

"A person's identity is thus equated with the raw "meat" of their brain such that when that organ is injured or even reduced in size, so is their humanity. A mind-set of fatalism sets in, causing us to write our loved ones off and lament their progressive decline as we understand their condition through the loss-of-self metaphor. As I expressed earlier, cognition and rationality must not be equated with personhood. This viewpoint, which the late Tom Kitwood called the "malignant social psychology" of dementia, often precludes the empa-thetic engagement that persons who are aging deserve."

"There are, however, plenty of lean complete proteins, including the breast meat of poultry and eggs from organic, free-running hens. Organic plant sources of protein such as beans, legumes, and nuts are also excellent choices, but plant proteins must be combined in order to form a complete protein (e.g., rice and beans). You should eat a serving of protein with every meal. Table 3-2 lists some good protein sources. Table 3-2. Protein Sources and Serving Sizes Protein Source Serving Size Comments Fish 6 ounces Steam, bake, grill, or stir-fry in olive oil. Do not fry."

"When possible, eat only organic, hormone-free meat and dairy products. Eat organic produce, which has not been sprayed with pesticides. Wash all produce to rid it of any type of chemical residue or pesticides. Throw away all pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides. Never tent your house and fumigate it with pesticides. Research and use organic approaches and products for home gardening and pest control."

"Environmental estrogen, or xenoestrogen (pronounced "ZEE-no-estrogen"), can be found in pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, plastics, fuels, car exhausts, dry cleaning chemicals, industrial waste, and meat from animals that have been fed estrogenic drugs to fatten them. It is also found in the synthetic estrogen and progesterone (chemically termed progestin) of birth control pills and hormone therapies; these synthetic hormones are secreted in women's urine, are flushed down the toilet, and eventually make their way back into the food chain."
