Have you heard that yogurt can help you lose weight? Actually, lowfat yogurt and other common "health foods" might not be the healthiest snacks.
Do you know that some "health foods" are not actually healthy? Common "healthy" foods like milk, cereal, yogurt, wheat bread and even fruit juice can actually harm your health!
Our guide dispels common myths about deceptive foods and gives you some wholesome alternatives:
A better alternative? Nutritious raw milk contains essential fatty acids that boost your immunity to fight disease.

Please note: At Body Ecology we do not recommend milk, especially in the first stage of The Diet. Some people never do well on dairy foods usually because the protein casein is difficult to digest and is often dehydrating and constipating. Dairy is often mucous-forming for many as well. If you do introduce dairy into your diet and find you thrive on it, then please ferment it. Kefir is unique in that it can be made with raw milk.
A better alternative? Why not make your own probiotic-rich kefir (as mentioned above) at home? Use a Body Ecology starter to ferment your own raw milk kefir. It is as easy to make as :Kool-Aid…you just have to wait 24 hours before drinking it. Kefir made at home contains much more potent amounts of beneficial microflora. Kefir also contains beneficial yeast that help control pathogenic yeast.

A better alternative? For a warm, convenient morning meal, try Body Ecology's Hot Breakfast Porridge recipe.
Conventional whole grains lack vitamins and minerals, can be difficult to digest, and often cause allergenic responses, contributing to autoimmune disorders like Celiac disease.4
