There is no one perfect diet for everyone, as people function best with different energy source breakdowns.

The Hausers, realizing their traditional medicine training did not have it all right, encourage you to pay attention to how foods make you feel rather than personal preferences.

  • People thriving on a plant-based diet are often hotter, not prone to hypoglycemia, and may enjoy moderate caffeine/alcohol without ill-effects, and favor a plant-slant eating plan.
  • Those energized by protein and fat tend to be colder, experience hypoglycemia, and find caffeine/alcohol impactful, favoriting Keto or Atkins type eating.
  • Those who feel good with any food can maintain balance in moderation. Thus, we encourage you to pay attention to how you feel with eating.

Here are some healthy eating tips for all: eat fresh food, consume more vegetables than fruits, choose organic when possible, cook at home, avoid processed items, sugar, and sugary foods, and drink purified water!

Here’s to your health! Enjoy the recipes!
