Why This Works

The differences between The Protective Diet and other low-fat plant based diet plans are:

  • Physical cravings are eliminated by removing all forms of sugar (including dried fruit), food additives, coffee, juice and all animal products
  • Taste buds are reprogrammed with the elimination of extracted fats in the diet such as oils
  • Whole plant based foods high in saturated fats such nuts, nut butters, avocado, coconut and seeds (except for chia seeds for thickening purposes) are removed
  • Physical food addiction is eliminated in the first 30 days with abstinence
  • After the 30 Day Detox and Taste Bud Reprogram is complete, our taste bud receptors are not searching for the missing fats
  • Natural food satisfaction is improved, making this plan an enjoyable, maintainable delicious lifestyle
  • We can then truly address eating to satisfy hunger without cravings and addiction driving us to over-consume food
  • After 30 days our major challenges of food addiction are behind us
  • It becomes easy to stay on track
  • We are eating to satisfy hunger rather than to satisfy cravings
  • New skills are developed to manage this diet and lifestyle
  • The Guide to Optimal Health outlines three focus levels to hone your practice all the way to optimal health (the guide is located in the Services menu).

Protective Diet recipes are based on comfort food favorites for the entire family to enjoy. They aren’t just boring steamed veggies with rice or big pots of hot water and vegetables called soup. I’m offering you familiar food favorites so you never have to cheat. The recipes are sure to please simple young palettes and foodies alike. Protective Diet incorporates authentic global cuisine, uniting kitchens of the world with healthy worldly options. The program and recipes are designed to encourage those new to the kitchen along with master chefs who want to improve with innovative healthy cooking techniques.

I designed this plan incorporating the science behind a whole foods plant based diet proven to reverse and protects us from disease. I then took it a few steps further to eliminate cravings, make us feel incredible, and satisfy our love of good food with delicious and easy to follow recipes. Protective Diet incorporates lifestyle coaching, a community of support and a step-by-step guide to make this practice enjoyable and fun while quickly reaching all our health goals.

The Protective Diet allows us to eat when we are hungry and stop when we are full and satisfied. This may sound simple, but it is something that is nearly impossible to do when we are eating foods loaded with additives, sugars, and fats that cause us to confuse cravings or withdrawal with hunger. We never limit grains or starches. Once we accomplish the first 30 days, we move forward improving our health with the PD 50/50 Balanced Plate Practice. We then can move on to mastering our practice with a 21 Meals to Mastery Challenge. This third and final step is optional and focuses on mindful eating to accelerate weight loss or eliminate those last few pounds of body fat. It will reduce food costs and time spent preparing meals.
