Notes on the Diet:
(1) Meat and fish are better if not corn-fed. This means avoiding farm-raised fish and meat, even if they are “organic.” Grass-fed beef is ideal.
(2) Dairy products are better if from range-fed cattle and animals not injected with antibiotics, hormones, or steroids nor fed silo-stored grains. Whipping cream is liquid, unsweetened heavy cream.
(3) Organically grown vegetables are preferable.
(4) Excluded because many of them contain fermented products like vinegar.
