The B.E.D. “Diet”

Body Ecology “Diet”

On my blog, I talk a lot about all the different types of “Diets” that are out there. I like to give Information where I think Information might lack. I also like to tell you the truth behind these different “Diet” fads. An example I talked about lack of nutrition and mental health If you are Interested In reading that here Is the link so you can check It out~~~~>Nutritional Depression 

I haven’t really talked about gut health. And today I am going to talk all about the gut. The problem people have Is that people never think Issues on why they aren’t losing weight Isn’t gut related. Food allergies and Food sensitivities all In the gut. In our physical body Is born with a certain amount of enzymes to maintain health and vitality. When these enzymes are depleted In the physical body the body becomes diseased and gradually expires… due to Improper eating habits, we have knowingly or unknowingly reached a point where our bodies are severely depleted.

What Is B.E.D? The Body Ecology Diet or B.E.D Is all about boosting immunity by maintaining a healthy inner ecosystem by keeping large amounts of friendly bacteria in the digestive tract and maintaining alkaline blood, which In turns, strengthens the health of the entire body. 

Explanation: In everybody, there are always friendly and unfriendly bacteria present. In a strong healthy body, the beneficial bacteria effectively combat the harmful bacteria, preventing an overgrowth. Conversely, in a compromised immune system, the unfriendly bacteria overpower beneficial bacteria, and this imbalance of bacterial beasts releases toxins, which invade our tissues, cells, organs, and blood, weakening our immune system even further, and affecting our ability to fight infection.

This bacterial war is manifested with symptoms ranging from food allergies, headaches, digestive disorders, persistent colds, and flu, to life-threatening diseases such as cancer. Other factors that contribute to this harmful Imbalance Include chemicals, stress, Inferior quality air and water, hormonal changes, and the use of antibiotics, which destroy harmful pathogens but also destroy beneficial bacteria, which then throw our bodies out of their natural balance, starting the entire process of imbalance again.

Today I am going to talk about something that has been around for many years this “Diet” just goes by a different name and that name Is the Body Ecology Diet or B.E.D.The first thing I want to get out of the way Is that The B.E.D Is not designed for weight loss. It’s designed for people who have gut problems and weight loss comes naturally because you are cleansing your gut from all of the bad bacteria.

The B.E.D doesn’t have a workout plan either. So If you’re looking for a plan that Includes a workout plan this doesn’t. You can workout while doing the B.E.D you just have to know how to workout. One of the benefits of The Body Ecology “Diet” Is that dieters should expect to lose weight If they stick to the foods that the book recommends. That being said, It Is not the type of “Diet” plan that people should follow If they need to lose more than just a couple of pounds. Not only Is this type of “Diet” slow to work, It Is also not built to be a long-lasting “Diet” program.

Easy To Follow

The B.E.D Itself Isn’t that hard to understand or follow. What makes It hard and this Is where most people quit Is because In the first stage of the “Diet” you are NOT ALLOWED to have any sugar or carbohydrates. This where cravings will hit and they will hit hard. The B.E.D Is also about changing your lifestyle rather than a “Diet”.  Which means weight loss that may occur might be slow. This can leave many frustrated and not willing to wait, which usually results In a total abandonment of the “Diet” Itself.

There are some key principles of healing the body. These principles are more of a holistic approach and Is not for everyone.

Yin And Yang

There are foods that cause our bodies to expand, open up and relax, such as sugar, alcohol, milk, cheese, and coffee. Conversely, there are other things that cause up to tighten and close, such as salt, meats, nuts, and beans. Just like a healthy balance of bacteria Is required In the body for optimum health, so too Is a balance between contractive (closed, tight, soft, dark) and expansive (released, open, relaxed, active) forces. The Ideal state Is to exist between the two extremes, where the body feels calm, centered and strong.

The Body Ecology “Diet” principally utilizes neutral foods such as green vegetables, sea vegetables, and alkaline grain-like seeds such as quinoa and millet, and employs healthy food combining strategies that work with the complementary nature of opposite forces, and balance the life force energy or Ki (pronounced Chi) In the body.  Some expansive (herbs, spices, kefir, ghee) and contractive (fish, eggs, salt) foods are allowed. Fish (halibut, salmon, tuna) is the recommended animal food In the “Diet”, as It Is the most balanced contractive animal food.


Acknowledging the reality that one “Diet” will not work for every human being on the planet. We must acknowledge the Impact of seasonal changes, environmental pollutants, emotional realities and aging on our bodies. This concept of flexibility and fluidity not rigidity resonates with me. It Is much healthier to adopt an Intuitive approach to “Diet” and healing that does not remain static. But rather, adapts to your body’s changing needs. Listening to and learning from our bodies Is critical. In the cooler months, you may want to eat more cooked, heating and strengthening foods; and In the hotter months, more raw foods would be balancing. Similarly, If you are feeling tight, you will want to eat more expansive foods In order to gain some strength.

Natural Cleansing

I’m sure at this point you have done or heard all about cleanses. Did you know that not all cleanses actually cleanse? Yes, you read that right. Not all cleanses actually do what they say they do. Cleansing and removing toxins Is Important In order to regenerate and heal. This process Is fabulous when you are at the other end of it. But can be unpleasant whilst In the throws of the detoxification process! Natural cleansing reactions Include headaches, muscle aches and pains, fatigue, colds, flu, skin rashes, diarrhea, and erratic mood swings.

It Is advised that we do not try to mask these cleansing reactions with antibiotics or other medicines. Allow the body to naturally purge these toxins, or they will be driven deeper Into the tissues and organs and embed themselves, causing problems down the track. The disease occurs when our bodies become overwhelmed with deep-seated toxins and pathogens and are no longer able to cleanse effectively.

Final Thoughts

I just covered some of the key points of The B.E.D lifestyle. This Is for anyone who Is looking for to cleanse their gut. If you are looking for a weight loss program this Is not It. You are better off looking for something that covers both nutrition and fitness. Once you find a fitness and nutrition program that works for you-you can then go and do The Body Ecology “Diet”. Just like with everything else related to fitness and nutrition always talk to your Doctor before switching your lifestyle. Remember not every “Diet” will work for everyone and everybody bodies react differently.
