THP Healthy Eating Guidelines

Getting your health back on track can be difficult, especially when there is so much information out there, how do you know what’s the right one?

Well, luckily for you, we’ve figured it out for you!

Getting back into shape just became a whole lot easier…

To keep it simple, follow this one rule:

‘If it’s made by nature, eat it; if it’s made by man, DON’T!’


• Meats: Beef, lamb, chicken, turkey, pork, veal, kangaroo, deer, etc.

• Fish and Seafood: Salmon, trout, haddock, shrimp, shellfish, etc. Choose wild-caught if

you can.

• Eggs: Choose free-range, pastured or Omega-3 enriched eggs.

• Vegetables: Broccoli, kale, peppers, onions, carrots, tomatoes, etc.

• Fruits: Apples, oranges, pears, avocados, strawberries, blueberries and more.

• Nuts and Seeds: Almonds, macadamia nuts, walnuts, hazelnuts, sunflower seeds,

pumpkin seeds and more. Make sure they are raw and unsalted.

• Healthy Fats and Oils: Lard, tallow, coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil and others.

  • Salt and Spices: Sea salt, Himalayan salt, garlic, turmeric, rosemary, etc. Make sure you read the label to ensure there are no other ingredients.


• Sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup: Soft drinks, fruit juices, table sugar, candy, pastries, ice cream and many others.

• Grains: Includes breads and pastas, wheat, spelt, rye, barley, etc.

• Legumes: Beans, lentils and many more.

• Dairy: milk, commercial butter, yoghurt, cheese, etc.

• Vegetable Oils: Soybean oil, sunflower oil, cottonseed oil, corn oil, grapeseed oil,

safflower oil and others.

• Trans Fats: Found in margarine and various processed foods. Usually referred to as

“hydrogenated” or “partially hydrogenated” oils.

• Artificial Sweeteners: Aspartame, Sucralose, Cyclamates, Saccharin, Acesulfame

Potassium. Use Stevia Leaf instead.

  • Highly Processed Foods: Everything labeled “diet” or “low-fat” or has many weird ingredients. Includes artificial meal replacements.


These are perfectly healthy – in small amounts!

  • Red Wine – a high quality red wine is high in antioxidants and beneficial nutrients.

  • Dark Chocolate – choose one that is 85% cacao (NOT COCOA) content, usually you will need to go to a health food store fir this.


  • Water, Water and more Water – keep yourself hydrated throughout the day by drinking at least 2L of water. Add some freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice to spice it up. Only drink out of a stainless steel water bottle, or glass. If you can, get a water filter.

  • Tea – choose tea that comes in unbleached tea bags, green tea is great!

  • Coffee – very high in antioxidants and has some considerable health benefits. Make sure you choose an organic brand and obviously no milk or sugar!
