  1. Don't eat commercially processed foods such as cookies, cakes, crackers, TV dinners, soft drinks, packaged sauce mixes, boxed foods, can foods, etc.  Cook from scratch with grains, legumes, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds.
  2. Avoid all refined sweeteners such as sugar, dextrose, glucose, high fructose corn syrup and even agave. Just raw honey as much as you can, then some maple syrup, and black strap molasses in cooking.
  3. Avoid white flour, white flour products and white rice. Just use wheat, rye, basmati rice, barley, quinoa etc.
