Z-DIET TO TRY
Below is a simple diet, set up for a week. Use this sample to set up your own menu for a week, a month, or a year... Just substitute foods, as suggested from your pH Balance Evaluation, for the ones shown, or change the daily meal order of this "balanced diet," and this menu plan could could go on indefinitely. The main idea is for you to see what a healthy, balanced diet is like.

Use this menu plan for a guideline, then "input" the foods recommended from your Evaluation, and you will be doing all you can towards eating a good balanced diet... which is by far the best thing you can do for yourself as far as attaining optimum physical health.

It is WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO as far as long term health is concerned, because there are NO short cuts to a balanced pH for your body besides eating well.

Hints:

1. See also vegetarian alternative meals in recipe section of the program.

2. In making salads make enough to last several days, then store in air tight containers.

3. Do the same thing with dinner meals, or freeze leftovers for convenience.

4. Rotate varieties of lettuce when making salads such as head, romaine, butter, etc...

5. Rotate cereals/breads for variety of minerals. Toasting makes it easier to digest.

6. Soups are therapeutic---home made best, especially with lots of vegetables.

7. Remember what your mother always told you... "Eat your vegetables!"
    You should have listened!!!


FOR WEIGHT LOSS:

A protein powder shake may be substituted for one meal until you have made some initial progress in your weight loss efforts, WHICH MUST INCLUDE daily aerobic type exercise... like walking, biking, swimming or what have you for at least 20 minutes each day. The longer the exercise, the quicker the weight loss. Stay away from weight lifting, except low weights with high repetition.

Trying to lose weight without daily exercise is not possible. Diet alone will just further deplete your body chemistry of the very minerals it needs to maintain good digestion and strong metabolism. This leaves you even more hungry, with the body starving for the elements and nutrients it isn't getting from a restrictive diet. A balanced diet, with high fibre, moderate protein and lower fat... plus exercise... is the bottom line for those who are truly interested in real weight loss for a "life-long diet" they can stick to, or should I say "long life diet!"

Yes I Should!

After the weight is lost, exercise of an aerobic nature will only be needed a few days a week. Keep in mind that simply walking 10 to 15 minutes daily is for weight maintenance, and more than that time is pure calorie-burning weight loss... the longer you can go past the 15 minute time, the quicker the weight loss... as simple as it gets when it comes to the "bottom" line...
... perhaps your bottom line...
We hope so!!
