Diet contains no dairy and include only organic foods without hormones and without inflammatory effect. A serving of protein means a serving size of your palm and you must choose lean meats and more natural, with no hormones or antibiotics, preferably from animals reared in traditional conditions (outdoors and fed on grain and grass).

Natural foods are favored and should exclude sweets and dairy, and if you are craving for something sweet you can enjoy a fresh fruit shake goji, a few slices of apple with peanut butter or a square of dark chocolate, organic.
