This isn’t really “thee” Divinity Diet. It’s the almost-Divinity Diet.
It’s the Divinity Diet, without the compassion component, which is what uniquely separates the Divinity Diet from all other diets.
A great analogy is if a pianist came to you and said they were going to play Für Elise, but they could only play the beginner’s/kiddy version. It’s missing notes from the original, which makes both hands easier to play. Would it be accurate to say they can play Für Elise? Yes and no.
This diet is the yes-and-no version of the Divinity Diet. “It’s better than nothing!”
Nuts and seeds.
Sprouts and stalks.
Beans. Specifically, raw edible beans like green beans/string beans.
Raw honey. Should be paste-like and in a jar; not in a squeezable bottle.
Companies lie but chemicals don’t. Must be raw, regular honey is cooked.
Plant Oils in small amounts. No more than three tablespoons a meal.
All edible parts of the plant.
Everything must be raw and organic when applicable.
Applicable example: Strawberries. Inapplicable example: Pink Himalayan salt.
Small usage of natural seasonings is fine. No more than three tablespoons a meal. No more than one tablespoon of salt per meal, because salt considerably dehydrates you. Examples: Curry powder. Blonde coconut sugar. Date sugar. Pink Himalayan salt. Any crude looking sea salt.
Unripe fruit. Examples: If the banana doesn’t have some spots on it (not too many spots) than it isn’t ripe. If the pineapple flesh is sour, and or its skin is green, it isn’t ripe.
Conventional/Non-organic/Pesticide and rodenticide riddled food of any kind.
Conventional produce has all sorts of harmful and toxic chemicals, and these chemicals are
specifically made so that bugs and other animals no longer consider it food. Also,
conventional produce can be GMO without stating so, by law in the US.
Also by law, organic produce cannot be GMO.
All processed sugar. Examples: Cane sugar (white table sugar, brown sugar,
raw brown sugar/demerara, etc.). Beet sugar. Brown coconut sugar.
Anything with charcoal or ash type compounds. Examples: Black Himalayan salt is a no-food while pink Himalayan salt is fine. “Activated charcoal.”
All animal products other than raw honey. Examples: Dairy, Meat, Nutritional Yeast, Honey, etc.
Cooked anything, including tea. Boiling, frying, roasting, or pasteurizing.
Peanuts, including their oil. They’re a bit toxic. It’s one of the reasons so many are allergic. We’re actually all allergic—some bodies just can handle its toxin better.
Cacao (chocolate). It has a neurotoxin in it.
Grains. Examples: Corn, wheat, quinoa, rice, etc.
Soy anything. Examples: Tofu, Tempeh, etc.
Unnatural chemical toxins. Example: Red lake 5, MSG, “Natural Flavors” (they are toxic), etc.
Vinegar. Doesn’t matter what kind. They’re all bad.
Anything frozen or fermented.
Dehydrated/dried anything. Example: Kale chips. Matcha.
Preservative laced food and drink. Example: Fruit juice with ascorbic acid.
Dead food. Example: A week old smoothie. There’s actually a simple method to tell if your food is dead that I explain fully in a book. Long story short, if the food isn’t fresh, it’s dead. Different foods have different time lengths of freshness, especially when chopped or blended or mixed with other foods. Juices stay fresh for only about 12 hours. No juice on a shelf is fresh unless it was made 12 hours prior. This subject is actually a bit complex, because just because a food isn’t fresh doesn’t mean it’s “fully dead.” Again, there are many factors; one being how it’s refrigerated.
Nuts and seeds should be eaten mostly from the shell. Eating nuts that have been shelled for over a day can cause mild dehydration and constipation (your stool will come out hard). Use the 50/50 rule with nuts and seeds bought unshelled: Eat half bought-unshelled nuts and half freshly unshelled nuts (you bought them in the shell and cracked them yourself) or some other water-based food in the Divinity Diet, like greens.
Don’t mix high amounts of sugar with high amounts of fat in a meal. Raw fats and raw sugars are not the same as their cooked counterparts, and don’t digest correctly in the body when in high amounts. If mixed, the ratio of fat to sugar should be like that of a strawberry or watermelon and its seeds—very little of either in the mix.
Don’t eat too much fat at once, fats are hard for the body to digest properly in high amounts. Two handfuls of nuts max is a good rule of thumb for how much fat in one meal your body can properly digest (it will probably take 3-4 hours to digest).
