Food, Health

Remove these foods from your diet to start living longer…..

March 9, 2015

So, as many of you know our family has started on an awesome new way of eating. If you have not had the chance to read Better Health in 120 Days: Finding Answers with the WEE Protocol for a Genomic-Specific Nutritional Plan you must! It is a small book that will change the way you think of food and your health! 

We started the plan in December and feel great, look better, sleep better, and have saved money at the grocery store to boot! I will be posting some great tips from the book and the WEE Protocol itself. I will follow-up with a large post on breaking it down and how we did it in the next few months. So stay tuned. 

For now here are the Omega 6 Plant Oil Foods that we should remove from our diet or limit significantly. They can lead to omega-6 inflammation and cancers.

  • seeds
  • nuts
  • flax
  • soy
  • granola
  • trail mix
  • humus
  • farm fed fish and poultry
  • Plant & Cooking Oils
    • Nut and seed oils, canola, soybean, corn, cottonseed, safflower, sunflower, coconut oils
  • Shortening
  • Chips

It is not easy by any means and you have to start little by little, one by one. We need to balance our Omega 6 with our Omega 3. Increase your fish oil intake and lessen the Omega 6 in your diet. There is just way to much of that in our Western diet.

Nuts, seeds, flax, granola and trail mix can be expensive. Instead of humus make a bean dip. 

Buy wild fish and organic poultry

Use butter and make you own potato or tortilla chips with butter

Easy fixes

Stay tuned for some recipes and more tips from the #WEEProtocol

***This is a protocol that my family is personally following. I am not a doctor and don’t intend to be.  I would recommend consulting with your physician first. Common sense stuff. If you are interested in the protocol definitely read the book and reach out to Dr Auckerman 🙂

    Just met with one of his former patients and she highly recommended his plan. She feels better and looks better than she had previously. She lowered her bad cholesterol and increased her good cholesterol just by following his guidance.

    Due to health issues, my brother in law met with Dr. Auckerman and is following this lifestyle. I would love to help make meals to help his family. Do you have any favorite recipes that are wee poetical compliant? Thank you in advance!

      That is great! I hope he is doing well. I had talked to Dr Auckerman about coming up with some recipes as there is not a cookbook or anything out there that follows the WEE protocol. That was last year. Our family then moved a few states away, life happened, and I put it on the back burner. 🙂 If I ever see any recipes or if I put some together I will definitely let you know! We do a lot of stirfrys – rice with vegetables in season or frozen. Meat from a local farm, mainly organic. Since Summer is here, we really just eat the in season veggies and fruit along with meat and rice. We try to keep it simple. 🙂

    Also, you should maybe take a look at the book and the protocol itself. Research more about why it works. It will definitely rub some people the wrong way, but I think we should always find out everything we can about a new idea before we judge it! 🙂

    Thank you both for your comments. There are always two sides to every story and/or diet. Everyone is very different in what they need and currently this is an option that has worked for many people, including myself, and from someone that I trust. The WEE protocol is not for everyone and that is ok. 🙂 I am just trying to educate others on this option. Thank you again for your comments as they are always appreciated.

    Innovate Inc appears to be a health supplement company. They perhaps have gotten permission to promote Dr Auckerman’s program. But, if only for legal reasons, that is very sound advise. I am happy that you are working directly with a qualified practitioner.

    I don’t have that kind of faith. Your blog sets you up as an “expert” in many people’s minds. A large percentage of folks read and hear little bites of information and run with it. To give the average human a book and hope they can have the same results as a person working with an expert on the system? Or even be safe? I don’t know if there is a condition regarding Omega 6 – that’s outside of my purview. Several of things on your list are recommended as part of a healthy PCOS diet. Would PCOS go away if Dr. Auckerman’s diet was introduced instead? Perhaps. I’m sure you’re well read and have researched these topics. But still, that list is…ugh for me…

    Hi Kathy, I mentioned this article to my sister because it struck a chord with me. I of course clicked on the link that you posted to learn how to live longer by removing certain foods from my life, even though I, in fact, have a nutritionist and an endocrinologist, and am intelligent. When I read the list, I was shocked because half of them are items that my nutritionist actually has recommended that I increase in my diet due to my insulin resistance. And yes, I’m going to follow my nutritionists recommendation, clearly. I do have to say that, as much as I would LOVE to have more faith in my fellow man, we know that just isn’t the case in a lot of situations, that they are going to take to the medical profession for advice, especially when health bloggers abound at their fingertips. Unfortunately, common sense is lacking in a lot of our society. =(

    I’m not so concerned about those who lack Omega 6 in their diet as I am about the other benefits that these items with that HAVE omega6 in them also have.

    “Successful use of this protocol necessitates working with a licensed clinician including MDs, DOs, NPs, NDs and PAs who practice or are open to integrative medicine strategies.”

    You should consider being more careful when telling people to radically modify their diet. Especially if you are not a dietician/nutritionist etc. To blanket statement suggest that people should avoid an entire list of foods generally considered to be healthy is outside of your purview. What if the person reading pretty much gets NO Omega 6 in their diet? Now you’ve told them to remove it completely. Regardless. This is post is irresponsible.

      Thank you Eliza. I actually am working with Dr Auckerman on this and have read his book and articles. I am not a doctor nor intend to be. I like to provide facts and information to my readers. There are so many great options out there for us to be healthy! The link you provide is a marketing affiliate of Innovate, Inc. Are they associated with yourself or Dr Auckerman? I am unfamiliar with them.

      I am unfamiliar with any type of condition where an individual does not get enough Omega 6, so I apologize. It is in most everything we eat here in the Western diet. I would hope that many people have enough knowledge to know that I am not a doctor and they should consult theirs. Have better faith in people. 🙂 Thank you for taking the time to comment, I appreciate it!
