Animal Protein

All meats should be lean, grass-fed, free-range, hormone-free and antibiotic-free whenever possible. Grass-fed meats will have omega III fatty acids (EPA, DHA); grain-fed meats will have none.


  • Organ meats (very healthy if they are hormone-free and antibiotic-free, grass-fed animals) DO NOT eat organ meats from industrially farmed animals.
  • Wild Game (this is the BEST source of animal protein!)
  • Lean Beef (trim excess fat; don't go for the fat-marbled meats)
  • Lean Lamb (trim excess fat; avoid chops)
  • Turkey (range-fed or wild only) Do not eat skin unless it is organic and only if your weight isn't an issue.
  • Chicken (range chickens are best) Do not eat skin unless it is organic and only if your weight isn't an issue.
  • Eggs (no more than six per week; free-range only)
  • Wild Caught Salmon (Sockeye, Pink, Chum) Canned is o.k. - check for added salt.
  • Cod, Snapper, Rockfish, Haddock or Halibut (limited to no more than six times per month)
  • Tuna, Swordfish (very limited) Avoid completely if pregnant.


Avoid all farmed fish (Most fish in markets is farmed. Those that aren't are still often highly contaminated with heavy metals.)

Avoid shellfish (These are bottom feeders and highly contaminated.)

Avoid all processed meats (lunch meats, Slim Jims, etc)
