Avoid saturated fats.
Avoid processed meats and meats cured with sugar.
Eat only lean meats
Eat 5 to 6 ounces of lean protein (meat or beans) every day. So, 5 or 6 eggs, or 1 chicken breast, but not both in 1 day.
Unless there is a clear allergy, eggs should be an important part of the diet.
Children should consume 2 to 6 per day.
Adults should consume 4 to 8 per day.
Limit consumption to 6 per week. Eat only eggs that are enriched with "Omega 3"*
Can cause trouble for people with autoimmune diseases. Don’t eat every day, but no upper limit on consumption.*****

Potatoes and other starchy vegetables
Avoid at least 2 years, or until healed.
Sweet potatoes may be enjoyed in moderation****
Some of the veggies to consume at least 2 1/2 cups of every day.
