Success with A High Protein Diet

Recommending a High Protein Diet

You may have heard about eating a high protein diet to treat or heal illness.  Some illnesses that would benefit greatly from it are chronic fatigue, candidiasis, fibromyalgia, heavy metal poisoning, irritable bowel, and others.  Hanna Kroeger Healer will give recommendations on the protein type, necessarily alkalizing your diet to counteract acidity, and how to compensate for the increased demand on your liver. It is recommended you read signs your liver is having difficulty before commencing a high protein diet. 

What a High Protein Diet is Not

A high protein diet is not about eating more soy products, or eating more beef. Soy is a cooling food, and eating too much beef may promote heart disease and is also pro-inflammatory.

Foods Highly Beneficial on a High Protein Diet

  1. Salmon
    • Sockeye Salmon
    • Pink Salmon
  2. Cod
  3. Mackerel
  4. Sardines
  5. Herring (Other Fish Too)
  6. Chicken (Chicken Breast, Chicken Thighs, Legs)
  7. Eggs or Egg Whites (possibility restricted)
  8. Some Protein Body Building Supplements

N.B. Inclusion on this list does not mean that the protein source will be acceptable to your body.

Believe it or not some Protein Body Building supplements are actually very effective at healing and providing nutrients to assist in healing.  Eggs are a high fat content food, and they need to be carefully used perhaps only once or twice a week.

Foods Somewhat Beneficial on a High Protein Diet

  1. Beef
  2. Lamb
  3. Pork (sparingly)

Food To Possibly Use Sparingly

  1. Shell fish
  2. Snapper
  3. Sole
  4. Tuna Fish (especially Albacore)
    (May not be advised due to mercury content)
These recommendations for protein sources are not necessarily vibrationally compatible with you. Alkalizing the diet and compensating for the increased demands on digesting the protein sources are necessary. A Vibrational Reading is essential to ensure long term success and Healing.

How To Keep Yourself From Becoming Acidic

This is very, very important. High protein diets are acidic which is not good for the body.  In order to compensate for this, you will need to use alkalizing foods or soups.  The most important compensator for alkalizing foods is using the right kind of water. Basically using a vibrationally compatible spring water rather than distilled water or reverse osmosis (supermarket dispensed machines) helps to ensure alkalinity.  The reverse osmosis water is acidic.

Alkalizing Foods

Here are some foods which are highly alkalizing in order of effectiveness.

Spinach, turnip tops, beet tops, almonds, carrots, dates, avocados (ripe), lemons, limes, coconuts, celery, cucumbers, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, asparagus, green beans, broccoli, green/red/yellow peppers, mustard, kale, okra, onions, garlic, radishes, collards, green leafy vegetables, wheat grass, barley grass, cabbage, dandelion tops, brazil nuts, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, flax seed, millet, buckwheat, and sprouted grains and legumes.
Selected Fruits: fresh coconut, watermelon, grapefruit, red currents, cantaloupe, strawberries, cherries, or cherry juices, dates, plums, raspberries, blueberries, black currents, cranberries, grapes, ripe gooseberries, currents, oranges, apricots, mandarin oranges.
Figs are an excellent choice and are very alkalizing, even in dried form.

Note grains are acidifying.

Helping the Liver Digest More Protein

Your liver takes flesh proteins and breaks them down into basic amino acids.  Therefore its only natural that your liver needs to be supported while on a High Protein Diet since it will have to work harder.  This is especially important in the long term since in the short term you may feel better, but if your liver is not supported in the long-term and healed you will have further difficulty. 

Waking up during the time between 1am and 3am is an absolute sign that your liver is having difficulty!

There are several ways to support your liver during a high protein diet.

The first method is to eat more deep green vegetables -- a necessary requirement.  Zucchini, Broccoli, Parsley, Bok Choy are all good choices. These vegetables help increase the liver's energy. 

The second method is use eat more Almonds. Almonds are an excellent choice for feeding the liver and aid the liver directly.  If you are waking up during liver time (1am to 3am) then try eating some almonds before going to bed, about 2-3 hours before. You will see your sleep improve. The almonds must be dried.

The third method is to go for a walk during the early morning hours, especially between 5am and 7am.

The fourth method is to practice Liver-Qi Gong or Qi Gong during the morning hours when liver is available naturally.

How Often Do I Eat the High Protein Food

Intuition is often your best guide to eating a high protein diet.  In fact, you may need to increase or decrease your protein intake at each meal depending on your needs.

What is important is that you balance your increase in protein intake with vegetables at each meal.  Use your intuition as a guide to how much protein you need.

Remember you can even eat that high protein meal AT BREAKFAST.

Following the proper rules of food combining will also help digest your protein's faster resulting in less toxicity. Eating more veggies at your meal is very important for added fiber.  Without the fiber you are likely to get constipated.

Eating Protein For Breakfast

Are you used to eating a high protein breakfast like sausages, eggs, waffles, toast, and bacon? Do you eat cereal and milk for breakfast? These kinds of meals are often a high fat content breakfast.  Its much better to eat a proper food combined meal containing protein and veggies. There is nothing wrong with baking some chicken or eating a can of fish with some veggies for breakfast.  The breakfast meal is very important.

There is good reason to eat protein at your breakfast.  Your stomach produces more acid during that time.

A High Protein Diet Can Be Inflammatory

If you have read and followed the diet in The Zone, by Dr. Barry Sears, you know that it is an anti-inflammatory diet.

The difficulty that some people could get themselves into because of a high protein diet is that it could become pro-inflammatory if it is not balanced properly as in the Zone Diet. The balancing means the proper addition of vegetables, and some proper, and a very small amount of mono-unsaturated fat. The Zone Diet is a blood sugar-stabilizing diet, a good immune balancing diet, by it‘s nature a high-protein diet.

How Does Inflammation Show Up?

If you have inflammation because of a high-protein diet, you may feel it. You could feel it in the heart muscle. The high protein diet could be contributing to inflammation in your arteries, which can cause plaquing. Other areas in your body where you may see, or feel it are the anal region, where they may be some redness. You could for example, be diagnosed with colitis, or have inflammation in your small intestines which you have had for a while and not know it. A diet such as the Zone Diet, can save your life, and keep you from being diagnosed with a serious medical disease. The Zone Diet if followed for sufficient time could also reduce the need for pharmaceuticals so be sure and mention your desire to follow this diet with your medical doctor, and have any blood work monitored.

Take an Essential Fatty Acid Formula such as Fish Oils

Essential Fatty Acids are Good For the Brain. If you are not eating enough fish on a high-protein diet, then it is recommended for you to take a vibrationally compatible fish oil supplement. Some fish oil supplements are made from salmon oil, while others are from Krill Oil, and yet others from a trio of fish, including sardines, anchovies, mackerel. These fish concentrate oils are free of heavy metals and other contaminants. Said another way, these fish oil concentrates are Omega-3 Oils.
