Tips:

1.)    Protein serving is approximately the size of the palm of your hand.

 

2.)    Vegetables: Fruit should be 2:1.

      

       *Important to Remember, Fruit has sugar in it, if you are trying to lose weight, or need to lose weight, stay away from fruit completely!

 

3.)    Variety is key. The more variety, the more nutrients you get on a daily basis.

 

4.)    Make your own vinaigrette from olive oil and vinegar of your choice. Drizzle one TBSP of this over a salad made from at least five vegetables, topped with chicken breast.

 

5.)    Substitute vegetables for refined carbohydrates made from sugar and white flour.

 

6.)    Use garlic and different spices to create flavorful meals.

 

7.)    American breakfast food choices tend to be all carbohydrate-heavy.  Avoid Cereals.  Make sure you round out this meal!

Testimonials

  • "My son was experiencing handwriting problems at school and the occupational therapist was not able to diagnose them. After his first adjustment, he woke the next morning much cheerier, telling me he slept "awesome." The school therapist called that afternoon to say there were no tremors in his handwriting that day. He looks forward to each appointment. Dr. Greg is fabulous!" (results after 1 adjustment)"
