A person should not make meals out of just the foods listed above or a deficiency in other nutrients may result in the long run. Furthermore, many of these calcium-laden foods are either mucous-producing if taken in excess (e.g., dairy products) or high in acid (fish and seafood).

For best results with this diet a person should take a vitamin D supplement (of the fish liver oil variety) regularly to insure that the extra calcium is going to be absorbed by the body. In addition, he or she should eat no refined sugar but use natural honey sparingly as a substitute. A dieter should eat small meals, with no heaping portions, and chew the food thoroughly before swallowing,

I suggest a menu that includes a glass of freshly squeezed orange or grapefruit juice with 'A lemon added for breakfast. Lunch should be the biggest meal of the day, consisting of four ounces of meat (perferably fish or chicken), a fresh salad, cheese or cottage cheese and a dessert such as custard, nuts or cheese. Dinner should consist of a fresh fruit salad with a honey-baked yam or sweet potato. Acceptable desserts are baked apples, apple pie made with V* cups of honey and fresh fruits. Desserts should be eaten Vz hour after a meal. Moreover, no liquids should be drunk with meals but, instead, consumed at least Vi hour before or after a meal. All fish should be steamed or baked.
