I am allergic to many foods, including wheat, milk, soybeans, watermelon, ad some others. These are not severe allergies, but I am supposed to avoid these foods as much as possible. How can I create a healthy balanced diet for myself while still avoiding these foods as much as possible? That would be including necessary nutrients, and such.
And also, what is the recommended amount of types of food, (bread, vegetables, fruit, fats, milk, etc.), for a person on a 2000 calorie diet?
Weight Loss is a very easy concept to grasp once you have required enough knowledge on the subject. http://boyels.com is where I first started my weight loss goals. After reading the site and watching the video I decided to give it a try. Nine months later I was 78 pounds lighter and had a visible 4 pack of abs (still working on that 6 pack). You just got to remember no matter what you’re doing to lose weight you can never give up and have to always push yourself further than the day before because at the end of the day the amount of weight you lose is entirely up to you. I truly wish you the very best wishes for your journey down weight lost.
Cow milk is one of the most common food allergen. Most people in the world are either intolerant of allergic to cow milk. Professor T. Colin Campbell in his book “The China Study” reported the correlation between higher consumption of dairy foods and increased rates of cancer (breast, prostate, colon, liver), vascular disease, and diabetes (Type I and Type II). Dairy is unnecessary for people with other food choices and should be avoided because of health risks. The ideal source of calcium and other nutrients is leafy greens including kale, collards, spinach, broccoli, and chard. Leafy greens are also high in iron and protein. It’s one of the best foods.

Sadly, most commercial breads are unhealthy because of refined carbohydrates, sugars, salt, and added oils. Some bread makers add wood pulp to baked goods in order to increase the reported fiber content on the label. Instead of bread, you should eat non-gluten whole grains such as brown rice and quinoa. To complete your protein requirements, you should eat legumes including a variety of beans, peas, and lentils. Avoid soybeans and eat any of the hundreds of other variety of beans. Sadly, wheat, corn, and soy products are typically genetically modified varieties in America. These GM foods have a severe allergenic affect on some people. Nearly every packaged food product in your grocery store contains some corn or wheat or soy or dairy. Dairy in the US often contains genetically modified bovine growth hormone (GM).
All of your daily requirements for fats can be met with one teaspoon of ground flax seed each day. Even olive oil and fish oil have unhealthy saturated fats. Manufacturers tend to stress the healthy aspects of the foods and neglect to tell you about the risks. Fish and fish oils often contain chemical pollutants and heavy metals. Avoid them. Just consume ground flax seed and avoid all other oily foods.
Eat a variety of colorful vegetables in steamed or raw form. Also eat a variety of fruits in whole form. Do not drink commercial fruit juices because they often contain fluorine compounds (from pesticides), and chlorine (from municipal water sources). Commercial fruit juices often contain sugar and additives that are included in improve appearance, consistency, taste, and shelf life. It’s best to eat your food whole instead of from a bottle, aluminum tray, can, or plastic packaging.
These allergies may be a blessing to you because you can take this opportunity to eat a truly healthy diet that allows you to avoid many diseases that are diet related. A whole plant based diet can had several years to your life.
I do not have any food allergies or other health issues, however, I eat a whole plant based diet as recommended by Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr. of the Cleveland clinic. This is the same diet that former President Bill Clinton adapted. He said that he lost 24 pounds before his daughter’s wedding. It was recommended to him by Esselstyn because President Clinton was suffering from heart disease.
The “whole plant based diet” is the optimal diet for most people. In rare cases, some people may need to eat differently because of diseases or genetic issues.
To learn about ,this way of eating, I recommend that you obtain books by Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Dr. Dean Ornish, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., Dr. John McDougall, or Professor T. Colin Campbell. These books are available in most libraries and thrift stores.
