What to Eat and Why
What to Eat and Why
May 31, 1999
Hard to believe that it’s June already. What happened to spring? Summer is here and with summer comes SKIN… swimsuits, shorts, sleeveless tops, etc. Hopefully all of you are “summer skin” ready since you have been doing the CRT Skin Tightening System daily. I wanted to share with you a testimonial I received last Thursday.
”I previously had vein surgery, but it resulted with more spider veins than ever. Between the T-Tapp workout and CRT brush system, my spider veins are disappearing. It’s incredible! Every day they seem to get smaller and smaller it’s as though they are being “sucked” into my body. My legs have never looked this good. I can even wear shorts again!”

Tip of the Week
In response to all your requests about food (i.e.: what do I eat, when do I eat, etc.) I thought perhaps I could start covering this area since it is in the “book”. I don’t do “menus”; instead I try to get people to think about what they are eating and why. Our bodies were created to digest and assimilate a balance of nutrients. We need vitamins, minerals, protein, amino acids, enzymes, carbohydrates, and fat. And we need them from food, not just supplements. Vegetables are very important to the body for a multitude of reasons. Primarily they are complex carbs, which give us energy. The blood types have great processing ability to pull out the nutrients from vegetables. If you are an A or AB and ate correctly, you could do without supplements. Botanical supplements are the best for A and AB blood types (this is why the Premium Blended Alfalfa is so good for you). So if you are an A or AB blood type, it is a must to consume at least two colors of veggies per day in order for your body to function properly and make weight loss/maintenance feasible (i.e.: broccoli and red bell peppers, carrots, or tomatoes). O and B blood types need the two colors of veggies as well, but they cannot fully assimilate all of their nutrients. Therefore O and B blood types need to supplement. However, they need protein and do well with animal protein (O needs red meat, B needs chicken). A and AB blood types do not need any animal protein, but need vegetable sources of protein (i.e.: tofu, garbanzo beans, legumes, alfalfa, etc). I will get into greater detail in the book, but this can help you start your own food “profile”.
I suggest that everyone try to get the following foods into their dietary intake:
1. Grapefruit every morning, at least 3 sections (not juice - you need the fresh fruit) and no sweeteners on it (not even artificial).
2. Romaine lettuce, at least 3 leaves a day. I love those triple washed romaine hearts that come 3 to a bag. I don’t even make salad with them.
3. Cherry or grape tomatoes, 3-5 daily. These small tomatoes are so convenient. Otherwise I consume ½ large tomato a day.
4. Broccoli, 2 cups every day. This is a super veggie - a must for every woman!
5. Carrots, 2 daily preferably with green tops still attached so you know that they are fresh and full of nutrients!
6. Almonds, 7-10 raw (not roasted) daily.
7. Red bell peppers, 3 “strips” a day. Usually one will last for 3 days.
8. Parsley, one fresh small bunch per week.
9. Cucumber, one per week.
10. Sweet potato, one per week.
11. Eggs, 2 per week.
12. Tofu, 1 box Mori-Nu per week; 2 Boca burgers per week.
13. Brown rice and wild rice, 2 cups per week
I’ll start breaking down the “whys” for each in upcoming newsletters. But just remember to eat foods that are nutritious. Don’t just eat “empty” calories. We all can cheat and eat whatever we want as long as our machines can function well and be able to “eliminate the crap” (i.e.: do the T-Tapp Workout and CRT brushing!!) AND as long as you feed your body the nutrients it needs in order to function properly… at the cellular level.
Until next week. Good Luck and Eat Well!
