Intro to an anti-inflammatory, age-reversal nutrition
A. Options in High Energy, Alkalising and Cell repair Nutrition
Don't cut off all your pleasure sources such as chocolate, coffee, etc. abruptly. As you build vitality, they become less desirable anyway.
Introduce a "Power-Plate" with around 80% low carb vegetables and 20% protein-rich food. It should be solid. Eat this power plate before your normal time breakfast and lunchtime, but, 10-20 minutes before you are hungry.
Breakfast and lunch - Start with, say, 300-400 grams low carb vegetables and 50-100 grams protein-rich items. Add around 30 grams every day for breakfast and lunch to make it 1% of your body weight. A 60 kilos person eats 600-gram power-plate for breakfast and lunch. Make sure you are doing it in a safe and comfortable way. Initially, you might want to eat part of your regular/old breakfast on top of your power-plate.
Snacks can be such as low sugar fruits and seed bars.
Dinner - Eat one or two soups for dinner, as early as possible. This plan can be applied over a week or 10 days. High carb items - You will find that your desire for starchy foods, sugars, and dairy products drops naturally.
Times - Breakfast could be up to 9 am. Lunch at least before 2 pm.
The right quantity - work comfortably and safely towards 1% of your body weight.
Chew & Sip - every mouthful 30 times. Sip liquids slowly, a glass of water should take 10 minutes to drink. Energy rise - Soon, your energy level raises and stabilises, and the need for high carb items vanish.
Morning snack - Nuts and seeds, anything hard or heavy.
Afternoon snack - Fruits, anything light and easy to digest.

Your meals - Work with this program slowly and steadily over a week or two.
Cooking. Steaming, boiling, pan frying, currying, baking, etc. is fine, as long as its nutrient-dense and tasty. High carb items - You will find that your desire for starchy foods, sugars, and dairy drops naturally.
Batch cook if that works.
Storing. Stock high quality and easy to use food items. Have pre-chopped, grilled, pan-fried, roasted, curried or steamed - in Tupperware refrigerated. Twice a week refrigerate or freeze baked, grilled, pan roasted, steamed, chopped and curried vegetables. Frozen vegetables are fine. It's easy to put them together! I personally like stir-fried vegetables, as it tastes fresh and warm. Slow cookers also make it super easy to cook nourishing, flavoursome food overnight
B. Shopping List Avoid anything that is not agreeable to you. This is a starters list. These are cell-nourishing, energy building, anti-inflammatory food items. Also, personalise it further if you need to.
Drinks. Fresh filtered or spring water (not ‘dead’ distilled water) Low sugar juices. Apricot juice Coconut milk Cranberry juice Lemon juice Prune juice.
Condiments. Dark chocolate Chutney Coriander Coriander leaves Curry leaves Olive Miso Parsley Salt Tamari.
Others. Have small animals and birds, along with all types of fish except shellfish.
C. Some funny facts - Most gluten-free products are high in carbohydrates and hence increase inflammation. A sugar-free product might be high in bad fat. Many fat-free products are high in sugar, salt or both.
