Forbidden For The Unwell
Forbidden are all fats, other than flax seed oil, –as well as white sugar and preparations containing white sugar. Natural sugars, as present in fruits are allowed.
Strictly avoid all types of sausages and processed meats, all baked goods from the pastry shop (the combination of hydrogenated or animal fats with sugar is detrimental to good health).
Within the framework of The Oil-Protein Diet regimen, scrambled eggs or fried eggs prepared with bacon or lard can cause problems. Poultry and game with added preserving agents can also exert a negative influence if one’s health is unstable.
With The Oil-Protein Diet, you can protect yourself against harm while you are traveling by ordering fresh fish, such as trout, pike or carp.
Strictly avoid canned fish, crab and other products from the deli, because they frequently contain artificial coloring agents and harmful chemical preservatives.
The formerly esteemed cod-liver oil was beneficial on account of its poly-unsaturated fatty acids. Recently, it has become common practice to heat the cod-liver oil in high temperatures in order to give it a longer shelf-life. The consequence is that cod-liver oil which has been treated in this manner causes serious health damage. The same is true of many oils in canned fish.
A Guide Out Of The Maze Of Nutrition Advice
One must ask what is valuable and important, what is less important, and what is hazardous to one’s health because of chemical additives. One must not only ask “What is forbidden or allowed?” “Vitamins” are necessary; they are present in fresh fruits and vegetables in adequate amounts, as are the necessary “trace elements”. However man cannot live by these alone!
The three basic elements of nutrition, carbohydrates, proteins and fats must under all circumstances be balanced. The basic nutrient “fat” is essential for life, as it is centrally significant for every vital function. Compared to all other nutrients, it contains by far the greatest force of energy which the body can access immediately.
FATS: A Life-Giving Principle In Their Wealth Of Electrons
Below are all symptomatic of the exclusion and “non-integration” of fats…
• Heart attacks, cardiac arrest,
• Fatty liver with irregular gall bladder functions,
• Tumor formation,
• Arteriosclerosis, rheumatism and joint diseases,
• Dry mucous membranes, also in the stomach and intestines.
Breakfast For Young People
“A full stomach doesn’t like to study!” So goes an old Latin proverb. Everyone knows how meals that are difficult to digest impair our ability to think. If, for their morning recess, we give children sandwiches filled with sausage and spread with indigestible fats, we will find in their blood all the symptoms associated with digestive fatigue that follow an enormous meal.
A child’s ability to perform in school is definitely improved and the tendency to tire easily reduced, when breakfast supplies them with enough, concentrated, energy-packed and easily digested nourishment (a little fruit serves as an adequate mid-morning snack).
Within the pages of The Oil-Protein Diet, there are guidelines to show how the very ill person, the mostly healthy person who “can’t tolerate any fat”, the person doing heavy physical work, the person who does “mental work”, and the athlete –all can avoid the burdensome effects of foods that are hard to digest.
Even in our times, with the many burdens caused by our civilization, it is still possible to preserve or get back our health, as well as our ability to perform at our maximum best.

About the Author: Seven time Nobel Prize nominee, Dr. Johanna Budwig — scientist, author and lecturer, has spent more than half a century studying how highly unsaturated essential fatty acids (like those found in flax seed oil), when combined with high quality protein (which makes essential fats easily soluble), counteract toxic and poisonous accumulations in all tissue.
Dr. Johanna Budwig has put together an imaginative, yet practical guide to healthy food preparation featuring over 500 deliciously possible recipes from her own kitchen.
