BX Diet and Nutrition
The Delta Institute has researched and designed a nutritional plan to support the member while on the BX Protocol. Every food in this plan has been included for the value it lends to the overall nutrition of the member during the program. Additionally, many foods that have the potential to alter the effectiveness of the BX Energy Catalyst have intentionally been eliminated from the diet. Delta Institute strongly urges the member to become familiar with the nutritional program and strictly adhere to the guidelines presented in this handbook, although many variations of the diet have proven successful for members as well.
Why the BX diet is important
Nutrition is a vital component to the healing process. The foods you put into your body directly impact the way your body functions. Your body is like a machine that needs proper fuel to be healthy and maintain proper balance. As a patient of the BX Protocol, nutrition plays a large role in protecting the highly reactive molecule from interaction with unwanted constituents within the biological terrain. Every food you eat has the chance to support or potentially disrupt the effectiveness of the BX Protocol. It is important for the member to understand that deviating from the BX diet can significantly reduce the ability of the BX to work properly, which can interfere with recovery.
The primary goal of the BX Diet is to eat organic foods that will sustain an alkaline state within the body. The energy catalyst can be compromised by acidic body chemistry. Therefore, keeping your system alkaline is essential. This is done by choosing foods that are primarily alkaline. The handbook will include an acid/alkaline food chart to help you stay balanced.
In addition, the diet has been designed to establish healthy bowel function. Seeing as how the body needs to eliminate its toxic load, it is necessary to make sure all systems are working properly. To assist the body with this process, the BX Diet places a strong emphasis on patients making organic whole grains and vegetables the basis of their daily food intake. This handbook includes Delta’s recommended intake for each food group. It is important to eat the recommended amount of approved organic foods daily.
An emphasis on consuming healthy fats is meant to accommodate the members increased metabolism, which accompanies recovery.
Understanding the BX diet
The BX diet has been created to compliment your treatment. Designed to be high in complex carbohydrates and vegetables, it is expected that 50-60% of your daily food consumption be derived from whole grains and 25-30% from fresh vegetables. Of the 25-30% required for vegetables, you can achieve this through a mix of cooked, raw and juiced vegetables daily. Delta recommends eating only organic foods as commercial foods are laden with agricultural pesticides which will increase the body’s toxic load. By eating organic you will help to lower the amount of additional toxins the body has to process. This will allow the body to focus on eliminating the toxic load more efficiently.
The BX diet evolves slightly as the member moves toward full restoration. During the first four weeks, the diet is very limited. After week four, the diet becomes a little more lenient.
Although it may be difficult to understand, the BX Diet should be bland, in an effort to avoid the complexities associated with extensive spices and similar reactive compounds. As you study what foods are approved and which foods are not, you will understand what “bland” means in this context. However, you may find as you become immersed in the diet, you will find enjoyable recipes and healthy, tasty meals that comply with the BX Diet.
