The Body Ecology Diet

I am not so much a fan of fad diets however I recently learned about the Body Ecology Diet (BED) by Donna Gates and tried to check it out.  Below is an introduction by Donna Gates herself. All that she mentions matches with the various information on natural healing and nutrition  I learned through the years.  I am particularly interested in this because all recommendations are sugar free and best for diabetics like me (who  refuses to take drugs).

The Autism Network for Dietary Intervention site discusses the diet in detail.  BED is recommended also for Autism.  There are recipes and other downloads available in the official website of Donna Gates.

An Introduction to Body Ecology

18 things that make Body Ecology's diet the best diet out there.

We Follow the Principle of Uniqueness so we know that there is no one size fits all diet you eat the foods that are right for your body.

Body Ecology is a flexible diet. The foods you eat will change from time to time. Certain physical conditions or diseases, certain seasons of the year, your age, even your sex can play a part in determining what foods you need to be eating.

Body Ecology is an antifungal diet and helps overcome yeast or fungal infections.

Body Ecology can easily be adapted to become an anti-viral diet and can be used for all viral conditions like herpes, shingles, AIDS or the flu.

Body Ecology can be eaten vegetarian but it is NOT a vegetarian diet. If you are a vegetarian we have lots of excellent easily digested vegetarian choices. IN other words, we do vegetarian better.
