Alpha Nutrition Program Sequence
The success of the Alpha Nutrition Program involves regulating body intake of
food with minimal opportunities for biochemical confusion. To simplify the task
of food selection, the plan suggests avoiding most foods in bottles, cans, and
boxes. Frozen vegetables, fruits, frozen juices, carefully selected fish, and
poultry are recommended. Increased vegetable and fruit intake is one key to the
success of the Alpha Nutrition Program and one of the clearest emerging dietary
recommendations from all scientific studies. Increased vegetable intake reduces
obesity, coronary artery disease, strokes, cancer, and diabetes 2.
Vegetable foods should account for 50 % or more of daily calories. Complete if not
superior nutrition is possible with vegetable foods alone. Many people are
unaware that vegetable foods have enough protein to maintain athletic
bodybuilding. The only trick is to combine vegetable foods so that the set of
nine essential amino acids is complete. If you mix four vegetables from
different botanical families (e.g. carrots, peas, broccoli, and squash) with
rice, you tend to get complete nutrient sets with the exception of Vitamin B12
and Vitamin D. The combination of rice and a legume (peas or beans) is an easy
method of completing vegetable protein. Use four vegetable choices per meal. If
you wish, the addition of small portions of poultry, fish, or red meat easily
completes the daily requirement for protein.
Program Sequence Three Phases
The program is a sequential process. We have divided the sequence into three
Phase 1 consists of basic foods and the option of using an elemental
nutrient formula, Alpha ENF or Alpha DMX. Not everyone gets better, of course,
and not all recoveries are quick and smooth, but the fact that so many health
problems will clear with Phase 1 techniques is a miracle worth celebrating.
Phase 2: Once clearing techniques are working, you proceed to Phase 2, a
progressive addition of other important foods. You resolve some of the
negative emotional responses to change. Your new habits become more acceptable
to family, friends, and co-workers. You practice a problem-solving approach to
symptom recurrence, striving for a healthy, asymptomatic state.
Phase 3: If
you do well with Phase 1 and 2 foods, you progress to Phase 3, a period of
further food introduction, designed to increase the variety of food choices, and
palatability of meals. You add further food items slowly, especially flavorings,
fruits, soy products and legumes.
