Tracks Thru the Program
We use the term "track" to refer to the speed with which you travel down the diet revision path. A relatively healthy person who wants to redesign a preventive and health optimizing diet can proceed more quickly than someone who is seriously ill.
The Alpha Nutrition Program is designed for self-help. It is based on the assumption that a well-motivated, person can understand the goals and direction of the program and can learn over time how to choose better foods and self-regulate, using some basic concepts and rules.The program is modular and flexible in terms of the sequence and timing of food introduction. The duration of the journey is variable, depending on who is traveling, why the journey was undertaken and what burdens have to be carried along.
Both the healthiest and the sickest person need to clear during the first 10 days on Phase 1 and then proceed with food reintroductions. Since initial clearing usually takes 10 days, we have tended to use 10 day periods for planning progress along the path. For significant health problems, Phase 1 can begin with a food holiday. Food is replaced by Alpha ENF for 10 days or longer. Alpha ENF continued as foods are reintroduced to supply a portion of the required daily nutrients as foods are gradually reintroduced.
Three tracks are described in the Program
A Fast Track that lasts 20 to 30 days
A Medium Track lasts up to 60 days
A Slow Track will take longer than 60 days and sometimes extends over months to years.
You can compare the beginning of the program to infant-feeding practice; you return to the beginning and start over again. Alpha ENF acts like mother's milk or a safe formula in infant feeding, supporting nutrition while a new diet is slowly, and carefully created. The pace of food introduction varies with your illness and state of tolerance to foods discovered as you proceed along the path.
Phase 1 Start by Clearing Symptoms
The first idea of the program is to simplify your food intake and give your body a rest. Stop whatever you are now doing and have a fresh start.
You want to re-design your food supply to match the current needs of your body. You want to review and reconsider the impact of your eating habits on your health. You want to open yourself to changes that may solve immediate health problems and that promise to offer you better health in the future.
The time required for clearing symptoms depends on many factors and may vary
from 5 days to 3 weeks.On average, we expect significant improvement to
occur in about 10 days.
1 You can stop food problems by not eating
2 You can replace food with Alpha ENF ( or Alpha PMX)
3 You can eat from a simple list of well tolerated Phase 1 foods.
Phase 2 & 3 Food Reintroductions
During Phase 2 you add selected foods progressively and practice a problem-solving approach to symptom recurrence. Your goal is to develop new eating habits that stabilize a new healthy state. You make daily decisions about food choices. You plan your meals. You learn that the rules governing your food choices are more internal than external. Your body will tell you if a food is acceptable to eat or not. You learn to self-monitor and to self-regulate.
If you do well with a core diet created from phase 1 and 2 foods, you progress to Phase 3, designed to increase the variety of food choices and palatability of meals. The emphasis is still on vegetable and fruit choices with more grain-substitutes and their flours for cooking and baking. Phase 3 foods are optional rather than staple foods. Your attention moves to more flavorings, more substitutes for missing foods, more variety in recipes and meal plans.
