Sample Nutrition Plan for a 180 pound Male
Daily consumption for Carbohydrates, Fats, Proteins:
Carbohydrates – 35%
Fats – 35 %
Protein – 30%
- Proteins – essential to growth and repair of muscle and other body tissues.
- Fats – one source of energy and important in relation to fat soluble vitamins. Important for cells, the brain and nervous system.
- Carbohydrates – our main source of energy, important for chemical reactions, vitality and fuel.
- Minerals – those inorganic elements occurring in the body and which are critical to its normal functions.
- Vitamins – water and fat soluble vitamins play important roles in many chemical processes in the body.
- Water – essential to normal body function – as a vehicle for carrying other nutrients and because 65+% of the human body is water.
3.5 litres of water per day for an active male
2.7 litres of water per day for an active female
Health plan for a 180 pound stature includes:
Grains – buckwheat, millet, and other non-gluten grains. Need to drastically reduce these. Today’s grains are not very good for human health. Provided best options if you “need” them still. I prefer no grains at all.
Vegetables – 4 servings of vegetables per day. Fresh organic is preferred.
Fruit – 3 servings per day. Aim to consume fruit over juices which are high in calories & low in fiber content.
Dairy – 2 cups/servings per day (organic milk, real butter, goat’s milk, sour cream).
Protein – 4 – 5 ounce equivalents ((fish, organic eggs (if not sensitive), grass fed organic meat)).
Fats – 3 servings per day. Include avocados, almond butter, ghee, coconut oil, olive oil, dark chocolate, macadamia, raw nuts, and fish.
Three different daily plans. Pick one each day.

Avoid these if possible to reduce allergies as they are the five main “culprits” I see in clients:
- Commercial dairy with all the hormones, bovine, etc. ($3.97 bags of milk for example).
- Grain fed corn (GMO)
- Wheat, rye and barley (gluten rich foods)
- Eggs (non-free range injected with hormones)
