You will notice that by following this guide you will be avoiding most packaged and processed foods. It is important that you increase the amount of vegetables (from the list below) that you include in your diet on a daily basis. Remember too that ‘fat is your friend as long as you are not eating carbohydrates’, so please include good fats in your diet daily; avocado, olive and coconut oil, butter.

 What you can eat:

  • Plenty of fresh vegetables, in particular those grown above the ground; lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, asparagus, zucchini, cucumber, capsicum, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower

  • Avocados

  • Meat, poultry and fish (keep the fat on)

  • Eggs

  • Nuts and seeds – especially almonds, walnuts, macadamia and brazil nuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and linseed

  • Nut butter such as almond, macadamia and cashew and Tahini

  • Cheese, cream, butter, sour cream, cream cheese, milk (full cream)

  • Coconut cream and coconut milk

  • Olive oil (as a dressing with salad vegetables), coconut oil (for cooking)

  • Yoghurt (full fat Greek, avoid low fat and sweetened options)

  • Fruit but no more than 1 piece per day (not banana or grapes due to the very high carb count). A good guide is ‘what’s in season within reason’. Berries are a good option and frozen are fine

  • Any of the recipes included in this website

NOTE: If you are in doubt as to whether you should or should not eat a particular food a good motto is;

“If in doubt, leave it out!” and then ask me in the question section!!
