"The more variety of locally grown food, the better."

Dr. Jen Haley: The healthiest diet for a fit body, glowing skin, and energized life favors Paleo mixed with a bit of cyclical keto and intermittent fasting. Carbohydrates should come from organic, colorful, and a wide variety of vegetable >> fruit.

Our foods should change throughout the seasons and we shouldn’t be eating the same food every day all year long. The more variety of locally grown food, the better.

I recommend avoiding most grains, especially wheat. Depending on genetics, some people do well with oats, quinoa, and rice. Some people don’t so it’s important to listen to your body and even consider using a continuous glucose monitor to see how foods affect you as maintaining healthy glucose levels is important in order to reduce inflammation in the body.

Dairy should be avoided completely as it is highly inflammatory for the body and skin and can cause congestion in the airways.

Healthy meat, preferably from regenerative farming, is recommended. Red meat and lamb should be grass-fed, while chicken and eggs should be pasture-raised.

Conventionally raised meat is inflammatory and has a negative effect on your health and well-being so invest in yourself and be discerning when choosing this food (yes, it costs more for higher quality and nutritious food, and you are worth it).

I also believe in intermittent fasting or time-restricted eating with 16 hours of fasting/night for men and 14 hours/night for women.

Alternatively, one day per week of 24 hours of fasting can also promote autophagy, which is the process where metabolic waste products are cleaned up and renewal and rejuvenation are promoted. It is really important to give the body a break to help clean up and heal.
