The needs of sick people determined the approach to cooking and recipes. In a
practical sense, your kitchen becomes your personal chemistry laboratory where
your recipes for better health are carefully put together and records of your
progress are kept. You want 40 or so nutrients that your body extracts from the
foods you eat. You want to minimize exposure to substances that are not
nutrients. You want to balance nutrient intake so that your metabolism functions
well. The recipes are gluten-free, milk-free, egg-free and follow a progressive
path from Phase 1 foods ( a strict hypoallergenic diet) to a more expanded food
list in Phase 3.
The strategy of diet revision is to renew the importance of preparing and
eating the right food for the restoration and maintenance of your health and
well being. The program has been designed with a careful approach to food
selection and preparation. Since health goals have priority, complex food
mixtures and spicing are considered undesirable and many people have found that
simple meals can look and taste delicious. A simple appreciation of basic foods
can increase your pleasure in cooking and eating.
The main task is to assess which foods are suitable to eat. Often, single
foods have to be introduced in a slow sequence. When food evaluation is
important, meal planning takes second place and kitchen skills may seem
unimportant. As you progress and accept more safe food into your emerging diet,
you need to spend more time and energy making meals interesting and varied.
The program design is based on assumptions about food reactivity, safety, and
overall desirability. These assumptions have been confirmed by 15 years of
testing different food choices in a large number of patients who suffered from a
variety of disorders. The program includes foods that we have found to be highly
desirable nutritionally and, at the same time, caused the lowest incidence of
adverse food reactions in a large group of people. The program excludes food
choices - even popular choices - if these food choices created health problems.
Rice, vegetables, and some fruits were among the best tolerated and most
acceptable of all food choices.
