  • The way to eat when your health hits the Wall - Wahls' Protocol.

    Have you heard about the 9 cups of vegetables a day diet? No, it is not vegetarian or vegan diet, you can eat meat, you can also eat a little bad carb if you finished all your meat and vegetables first. It is not 9 cups of iceberg lettuce a day (definitely not a head of iceberg with blue cheese and bacon dressing salad), it is the Wahls' Protocol.

    Here is her viral TedX talk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLjgBLwH3Wc

    Here is an article about Wahls' Protocol. http://paleozonenutrition.com/2012/0...veggies-a-day/

    Here is an excerpt from this article by Eileen Laird... http://www.phoenixhelix.com/2013/04/...e-protocol-qa/

    1. 3 cups (about one heaping plateful) of leafy green vegetables, such as kale, collards, chard, spinach or lettuce,
    2. 3 cups of sulfur-rich vegetables, such as cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, onions, garlic, mushrooms and asparagus,
    3. 3 cups of colorful vegetables and fruits (ideally three different colors each day) that are colored all the way through, so apples and bananas doesn't count as colored, but berries, peaches, citrus, beets and carrots do,
    4. Always eat vegetables with some healthy fat for better nutrient absorption. Healthy fats include
    avocados, unrefined coconut oil, ghee, extra virgin olive-oil and animal fats such as tallow and lard,
    5. Eat your proteins especially grass-fed meat or wild fish at each meal,
    6. bone broth and fermented foods daily,
    7. once a week, eat organ meat and seaweed,
    8. NO grains/legumes/processed foods/dairy/sugar.


    *Other consideration... If you have egg allergies or any nightshade food allergies, you definitely do not add them in your diet.

    The Wahls' Protocol has 3 Levels:

    A. Wahls' Diet - #1-8 above are required, once you fulfilled your requirement, you can have more fruit, you can have some bad carb if you really want to (1 gluten free grain, 1 teaspoon of sweetener, and 1 non grain alcohol drink a day allowed).

    B. Wahls' Paleo - Same 8 requirements, but no junk food and seriously more meats (9-21 oz daily) with 12 oz of organ meat and 16 oz of Omega 3 fish per week. Seaweed, fermented food, soaked nuts, and seeds daily. Less sweet fruit and optional items that is not Paleo approved. No soy product. Getting close to Autoimmune Paleo with Wahls' requirements. 1 non grain alcohol a day allowed.

    C. Wahls' Paleo Plus - Wahls' Paleo Ketogenic, the vegetables requirements is reduced (2 cups, 2 cups, 2 cups), 6 oz - 9 oz of meat, 55% of fat intake, very low carb and might be 1 serving of berries allowed, fasting for 12-16 hours to help with nutritional ketosis. Eating twice a day. Definitely no cheats and no allergen food items. 5 tablespoon of coconut oil or 1 can of 14 oz full fat coconut milk per day. No legume including no soy sauce. Alcohol on special occasion only.

    Colored Vegetables and Fruits: Artichoke, asparagus, avocado, green beans (legume), green cabbage, celery, cucumber with skin, green grapes, green peas (legume), honeydew melon, kiwi, limes, okra, olive, green peppers, snow peas (legume), sugar snap peas (legume), zucchini with skin, beets, blood oranges, red cabbage, cherries, cranberries, red currants, red grapefruit, red grapes, radicchio, red pepper, red raspberries, rhubard, strawberries, red tomatoes, watermelon, aronia berries, blackberries, black currants, eggplant, elderberries, black grapes, purple kale, black olives, plums, black raspberries, apricots, carrots, grapefruit, gold kiwi, lemon, mango, muskmelon, nectarines, oranges, papaya, peaches, orange and yellow pepper, pineapple, pumpkin, summer and winter squash, sweet potatoes, tangerines, yellow tomatoes.

    Coffee and tea allowed.

    Here is a good article for gluten grain and food items:
    https://celiac.org/live-gluten-free/glutenfreediet/sources-of-gluten/

    To count your protein... here is a USDA website link you can look up nutrient composition
    https://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/s...rd%20Reference

    Vegetables in Grams as I measured:
    Tuscany (dinosaur) Kale - 1 cup of Kale is 30 gram or 1oz.
    Mushroom (crimini) - 1 cup is 70 gram / less than 2.5 oz.
    Onion (red) - 1 cup of onion chopped or sliced is 100 gram / less than 3.5 oz
    Romaine Lettuce - 1 cups is 55 grams/ almost 2 oz
    Broccoli - 1 cup is 62 grams/ 2 oz
    Carrots - 1 cup is 133 grams/ 4 oz
    Endive - 1 cup is 125 grams
    Arugula - 1 cup is 30 grams

      Sissy, doing Ketogenic...

      That is pretty much you were doing already, right? Do I need to worry about your in ketosis? I know Ketogenic is great for seizures and things affecting the brain including brain tumors. The founder of ISSA, he had brain tumor, and he went Ketogenic to get rid of it. It was a very interesting video to watch, as his nickname was Dr. Deadlift when he was young, and he was a big muscle body builder that believes in big carb load. Going no carb to keto was his unchartered territory. Nope, it wasn't covered in the nutrition classes, it was my other miscellaneous browsing and reading over the last few years.

      I think you are just getting more specific with the vegetables for the Wahls' Paleo Plus? I am not going to worry about you.

      We can try shopping and start on January 1, 2017.

      Make food journal entries on mood, water retention, headache (migraines), carpal tunnel, joint pain, etc.

      I am going to make an excel spreadsheet like a check list for the vegetables and fruit intake... I can get that ready by tomorrow night, so, just PM me your email address and I can give you my excel.

        Yes, I have been doing keto or very low carb for almost three years, now, so no need to worry about my ketosis ☺! A form of dementia runs in my mum's family and I feel much safer being keto... So, you are right, I mainly want to focus more on getting into the habit of rotating the vegetables, to be sure I get the most nutrients I can. I also want to go back to dairy free, and try an egg free period. I also need to cut on the decaf, which has been creeping...

        Now, on the practical side... how many grams is a cup? The Plus version has 4 cups for petite women and I am not sure about it. I am not so good with portioning, as I have always been eating tons of vegetables! So I prefer going with grams. I limit myself to 200/300 g a day of radicchio and/or lettuce, but I could easily eat much more if I don't weight it ☺! I will also go with the carb count, of course, to be sure to stay keto!

        Bones broth and fermented food would be more difficult to be included daily, though...So my plan is to rotate the vegetables first and then think how to implement the rest.

        I am going with 40 grams of proteins per day, which should correspond to the 6oz suggested on the book. Now I have some day with 70 grams, some days with 40. I don't really count them.

        Hope to finish reading the book by the end of the week and also to find some good recipes (and easy!).

        Thank you for your excel!

          Sissy,

          We normally go by volume and not weight.. each vegetables has different water content. 1 cup is counted as chopped raw, and once the vegetables is cooked, it would shrink down to 1/2 cups (be sure to include the juice of the cooked vegetables, that is where the nutrient is). Raw leaf not chopped is 2 cup = 1 cup chopped. It is about 1 organic romaine lettuce (10 leaves). A large grapefruit size radicchio might be 2 cups servings after you chopped it up. 3 whole Endive (3-4 inches long) is probably one cup. Kind of difficult to know, most of the fruit, vegetables, meat, eggs in US are huge (but the nutrient content might be lower as the favor is not strong). I somehow coordinate the nutrient content with how strong the food taste like. The organic food's favor are normally stronger and the nutrient is more, as it takes longer to grow.

          I might need to weight my vegetables to give you the grams, but then, if you eat radish, beets, onion, and carrots, they are much heavier than leaves. You need a baking measuring cup.

          You can also do your natural and nature's portion control size you already have in your own hand (pun intended). A serving size of meat is the size of you palm. Bigger people has bigger palm, petite girl has a smaller palm, kids have their own, but the size and thickness of your palm will do. For vegetables, the raw leaf, the size like 4 of your fist. Raw chopped vegetables like 2 of your fists. Cooked vegetables like 1 of your fist. So, you will still be doing 2-3 palm size of protein, however, 6 servings of raw and cooked vegetables. So, 12 fists sizes of chopped up vegetables raw before you cook them.

          If most of your food is cooked, take enzyme.

          The Wahl's Paleo Plus has an element of intermittent fasting, that is 16-18 hours without eating anything at all, just water, will you be able to adhere to it? I am familiar with fast and the premises of letting the body focus on healing old scarring tissue and damages. It is dedication and a drastic change form people eating 5-6 times a day to just eating twice a day, are you going to be okay with this? If you are only eating 3 times a day without snacking, I think it is doable, you would be skipping one meal.

          If the intent of doing Wahls Paleo Plus is to induce autophagy during intermittent fasting, I will suggest you take some digestive enzyme to make sure food are all digested instead of sitting at the GI track. Please do your workouts after one of your meals, otherwise you will not have enough energy. I am not sure about if your protein should go that low (for as long as you have digestive enzyme for protein). Try at least 50 grams of protein and at least 100 grams of carb a day, of course, the rest you use your good fat. Every week, feed yourself with more vegetables like 6-8 cups (if you are doing 4 cups everyday), I don't want your metabolism to dip too low. Refeeding is needed. This is a personal trainer advice.

          Bone broth... Get an electric pressure cooker, you can put things in and walk away. You can turn it off after 2 hours. When you are home, just turn it back on for 2 hours at a time. Add all your vegetables skin and ends into the bone broth (as one or two tablespoon of apple vinegar or red wine vinegar to dissolve more minerals). Make sure the broth has bone, joints and skin. Skin has a lot of collagen, you want that in the bone broth too.

          Fermented... saukraut, kvass, http://www.loveandwildhoney.com/2013...to-vegetables/

          When you go to the market, ask if they make the antipasto vegetables/dishes for sale. I am sure there are people doing that. In my area, I have Korean ladies making the traditional kimchee without MSG, they are hired by a local grocery store. Korean has a lot of fermented vegetables, they sell them for people who won't have time to make them. I am not sure I can get fermented Chinese food here.. If diary is out, I cannot use my milk kefir or yogurt, that is probably the most difficult aspect of the diet. I don't do diary other than dessert or the cream in coffee or black tea (but of course I can easily take it out, I don't drink them everyday, it is a treat and a social event).

          We have cookbooks dedicated to fermented vegetables. I think the main thing is make sure you press down the vegetables to no air touching it. Air bubble inside the vegetables causes mold and you need to throw them out. You can add sugar in your vegetables in the fermenting period... I think I would cheat and do pickling juice with sugar and vinegar to do the no air bubble if I am going to make fermented vegetables myself.

          I might just cheat and use Yakult and buy Kimchee.

            Well, the vegetables do not seem huge here, and I ususlly buy organic. 1 romaine lettuce is around 300 gr, while radicchio can vary from 300 gr to 600 gr depending on the variety (there are more than 7 varieties just in the region where I live). Anyway it would be nice (and much easier) if you could just weigh your cup of raw vegetables!

            You can also do your natural and nature's portion control size you already have in your own hand (pun intended). A serving size of meat is the size of you palm. Bigger people has bigger palm, petite girl has a smaller palm, kids have their own, but the size and thickness of your palm will do. For vegetables, the raw leaf, the size like 4 of your fist.

So, 12 fists sizes of chopped up vegetables raw before you cook them.
            With this method I might already been eating the 9 cups, I guess...

            If most of your food is cooked, take enzyme.
            Meat and fish is cooked, vegetables are usually raw. I will need to cook the cawliflower/kale/cabbage etc, as two years ago I had an alergic reaction to eating too much raw cawliflower (very itchy hives). And then I found it is not good for thyroid to it them raw, right? I will take seaweeds, this time, though, so it might be different. It would be much easier for me not to cook, though...

            The Wahl's Paleo Plus has an element of intermittent fasting, that is 16-18 hours without eating anything at all, just water, will you be able to adhere to it? I am familiar with fast and the premises of letting the body focus on healing old scarring tissue and damages.

If you are only eating 3 times a day without snacking, I think it is doable, you would be skipping one meal.
            This won't be a problem. I am already skipping breakfast most of the days, and don't usually snack.

            I will also look for the fermented food. It is not something typical of my area, though!

              I am doing these measuring and weighting as I cook, and eventually, I will edit the first post and add the measuring details in weight in. Today, I cooked onion, mushroom and kale and then added some mince garlic.

              60 gram of chopped Tuscany (dinosaur) Kale is 2 cups, that means 1 cup of Kale is 30 gram or 1oz.
              282 grams of Mushroom (crimini) is 4 cups, that means 1 cup of cut or chopped mushroom is 71 gram /2.5 oz.
              1 medium onion (red) is 1.5 cups, that means 1 cup of onion chopped or sliced is 100 gram / 3.5 oz
              I head of Romaine Lettuce is 4 cups, - chopped 2 cups is 110 grams, 1 cups is 55 grams.
              Broccoli - 2 cups is 125 gram, 1 cup is 62 grams.
              Carrots - 1.5 cups for 200 grams, 1 cup is 133 grams.

              I am the "finish the bag" type of cook, 3/4 of a bag means I am going waste the other 1/4 left. So the real recipe (no following any recipe, I just wing it, but for your amusement) was, 1-2 oz of extra virgin olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon of pink salt, heat a 12 inch pan then add the onion, after onion is sizzling and looking soft, I added 4 cups of mushroom, when the mushroom started shrinking but not much liquid left (you need medium to high heat), then added 6 cups of kale (to finish the half bag I have left). I added 3 cloves of pressed minced garlic for good measure for the last 30 seconds before turning the heat off. So, that is 11.5 cup of vegetables. I ran out of onion, if I have another, I would use it too, then this is a 13 cups of vegetable recipe. You can also add some carrot or tomato in this dish to get the other color all the way through requirement.

              I ate half, so I already ate almost the 3 cup of first category and 3 cups of second category. I ate 1/3 (filled a 16 oz container) of a pineapple this morning, so I actually fulfilled the 9 cups requirement without breaking sweat. Actually, I am still a little hungry and my avocado is ripe, I am going to eat a avocado now and maybe an orange for dessert. I ate some of the left over leg of lamb. So, there I had grass fed meat today. I also ate a piece of bacon for snack.

              I am not going to ever measure garlic in cups, not even when I make garlic chicken in a pressure cooker (40 cloves garlic chicken). Actually, it is better than you put 60-80 cloves of garlic to make the chicken and then add another 20 cloves in when the chicken is cooked.

              I am not sure if I have some Italian taste buds or not, but I lived at the North Beach Area (the Italian settlement in San Francisco) the first year I came to school in U.S., the garlic is 3 times as much as most of the recipes. If I am going to use garlic, I am going to use a lot.

              Ok, I am that type of cook, too! You are right about the garlic, we use it A LOT here. The only thing is that I sweat a lot, too, so I will smell like garlic if I eat that much....

            Sissy, I don't want you to eat less than what you are already doing, just change the choice of vegetables is good. The factor for the deviation is, you are an experienced T-Tapper. You might not have reversed all your muscle imbalance, and you still have some scarred tissues, trapped toxins in your body or your thighs, but you have lean and strong muscles, if you undereat, you will start losing muscles. That is not what I want of you.

            We T-Tappers have a lot of muscles, and using up carb is never an issue. If you are go to reduce any vegetables, you are depleting your stored nutrients. We burn carb 24/7 with our hard-earned T-Tapp muscles, you need to feed your muscles. Intermittent fasting is good and autophagy is great, but starving yourself is not.

            Just make sure you use digestive enzyme so that after dinner, you are in the fasting zone sooner. You still can use lemon juice, parsley, and a lot of basil for your food. Minimum is 9 cups of vegetables, but it is not the maximum amount, if you are hungry, eat more vegetables. I do not worry about T-Tapping women not getting into ketosis at all.

            When we talk about everyone is different, we T-Tapper sure are different.

            Now, when you are in the IF time, do not even chew gum... Chewing or swallowing lemon pulps will cause the stomach to churn and the digestive process starts up again, and you will not be in fasting mode and the autophagy won't happen.

              I cook all goitrogen vegetables... I am Chinese, I cook everything and I boil my drinking water. The only think I eat raw is fruit... and sushi (that is not Chinese) and salad (obviously not Chinese). I cook spinach too, I don't like it raw. Spinach, I think the shrinkage is the most among all vegetables.

              It seriously is not difficult to eat 9 cups of vegetables in cooked form when all grain products are cut out, I might eat 12 cups worth of vegetables to get filled up or for the carb,. You can saute onion with mushroom and add to spinach or kale or chard.

              Liver is a great organ meat, onion, garlic and mushroom sauted first, then quickly add sliced thin liver to cook for just a mins or so.

              I am looking forward hearing you improving your cooking menu and skill.

              In the summer, you can look forward to green smoothie. You can try bone broth and add vegetable for a quick blanching, then puree to make a soup. I can eat butternut squash (with coconut milk and cinnamon, or some curry and salt) that way. Adding coconut oil or olive oil in puree soup is also quite easy.

                My family, too, would like me to improve my cooking ! I would eat everything raw!

                I will try liver first, then heart and brain as soon as I find them. I like liver, but never tried other organ meats.

                I also need to look for digestive enzymes...

                  Teresa's digestive enzyme is great. Wait for the next buy one get one free, and order for your husband to take home if he has another business trip. Teresa's was formulated for her and her price is likely 1/2 of what we have to pay for similar ingredients in the open market. So, use her brand and the descriptions at the store to compare what you get.

                    I have just checked the Digest Plus in the T-Tapp Store. It's still 50$, so I would get 4 for 200$. Plus 29 $ for International shipment. Plus some tax fees (unknown in advance). My husband and I do not travel much even in our own country .

                    But if it is so worthy I am willing to try! I guess $50 would be the best price for the store, right?

                    Regarding IF, would a decaf break it? We have a coffee time at the bar, at work. I guess I should just skip it...

                    My T-Tapp form is not so good, I have to say, but I do have some muscles, at least in the arms! I need to bend more, keep KLT, upper abs zipped in throughout the workout.... I had my form reviewed by Trisch, and, ok, I can surely improve A LOT!

                    With only fish and meat I know I would normally eat around 40 grams of protein, but I will try to increase a little bit the amount. With eggs I find it easier to eat more because I can have them as desserts, with some stevia and lemon juice. But I wanna try the no-egg period. I have had alergic reactions to the raw egg white, maybe I have a lighter intollerance to the cooked egg, too!

                      I never managed to eat the fat bombs I made... However, I ate the Nutiva macaroon. You can try making coconut meat with coconut oil and coat it with chocolate. Almond butter chocolate cup is also great choice. I used to make chocolate truffle. I use dark chocolate and a lot of butter and heavy cream. Roll them is balls after being the refrigerator for a while, and roll the balls on plain cocoa powder.

                      Ok, no barley, too and will try to have lemon water at 10.30. Coconut oil... I need to have it with food, otherwise will give me nausea after a few minutes. Coconut butter has the same effect. I will try the coconut milk!

                      I will read the link about gluten. I have never read much, as I haven't been eating grains for almost 3 years. Better late than never!

                    When we have a buy one get one sale, you get 2 for $50, we just had a December Deep Discount Tuesday with that, and I think we have the Thanksgiving Sale for digestive enzyme in similar 2 for 1 deal too. I think I also got some like that back in August or Sept. I think to get something in the quality of what Teresa's digestive plus, you might need to pay $130. There are 18 types of enzyme that digest fat, protein, cellular material, sugar and gluten with extra trace minerals. When I browse the internet for product, I don't see most of the digestive enzyme hitting more than 8 different type of enzyme, so I gave up on the comparison. Teresa is picky on what she uses, she would not sell it let alone put her name on the product if it is not top notch.

                    I would not be surprised if Teresa will put Digestive Plus on sales again for Jan or Feb, especially, if she sees a need (she read the threads on the Forum). She is a softee, there are always tappers did not see the newsletter or just find out about the enzyme. I think I saw someone asking about right her sale on Facebook right after the Thanksgiving sales, so, there were are, we have it for Deep Discount Tuesday in mid-December.

                    Our T-Tapp annual contest starts on Feb 15, I am sure there will be mega sales for DVDs and products to equip us to get the best non-surgical results with nutrients and exercise in consistency.

                      Raw egg white is a counter nutrient... So stay away from raw egg white. Raw egg yolk on the other hand is very good. I bake my eggs in the toaster oven. Depends on the size, smaller one might take 10 mins at 250 degrees to the egg white is done but egg yolk still runny (I keep my eggs at room temperature). Jumbo size is like 14-15 mins at the toaster oven at 250 degrees. Yes, I walk away, I cannot stand standing there waiting for 6 mins with boiling water. A lot of things can be accomplished with 5 mins of focus.

                      I will put my hot water in electric kettle and put my eggs in the toaster and walk away to take my shower.

                      I normally eat two eggs for breakfast and some fruit (like pineapple or orange). You probably will not be eating breakfast for a while... With cleansing and detox, 7 am - 11 am is a good natural detoxing time. However, you can have eggs for dinner.

                        I sent the excel food journal and measurement journal for people who PM'ed me.

                        It is not my habit to keep track of weight and measurement weekly, but weighting weekly is suggested by Wahls...

                        I put down 6 feeding on the journal, it is overkill for some of you, you can hid the rows that you don't need, but I am also preparing for people who might eat 6 times a day for insulin issue. I have incorporated a place for cheats, not that I am encouraging cheating, but as eating banned food from time to time is human. However, I want to keep track of the effect or inflammation of cheats, so if there is a cheat, please weight and measure daily for 14-21 days, until your measurement goes back to before you cheated. We can see what more sugar, gluten and dairy will do to you.

                        If after the cheats, you have no weight issue or measurement change for 21 days, then you can cheat without remorse... LOL. I think we all like to know this too.

                          My problem is this is so much food to eat. I am literally feeling stuffed. Now at lunch I had 1 1/4 cup bone broth with 2 cups cabbage and a couple tbsp of chopped purple onion. I just managed to get 3 oz of protein down but I still left 1/3 of broth/soup. What shall I eat first? Or how to eat with out feeling so stuffed.
