To an enormous degree, we are what we eat.
Based on the Article: Foods for Daily Use by Dr. Wilson
Development is the expansion of the energy field of a human being. It is also the unfolding of the full genetic potential of a human being and the primary goal of development programs. Certain foods contain the right chemicals needed for development. These foods are needed on a daily basis. This article discusses the principles of the development diet and the foods required.
- Please do not skip meals – 3 meals a day are important, including breakfast and to avoid foods that are not part of the program.
- 70% of each meal by volume (not calories) should be cooked vegetables. About 15% of so should be protein food. At the same meal sitting, start with your protein first, and a few minutes later eat your vegetables and lastly your blue corn chips.
- Eat lots of well-cooked vegetables with breakfast, lunch and supper. Eat three meals a day. Do not eat just grains and meats, or mainly chemicalized food such as fast food, or raw vegetables (salads).
Adults need 2-3 cups of well-cooked vegetables with each meal. It is best if they are fresh and not canned or frozen. Interestingly, canned vegetables are testing better than frozen ones. Organically grown and locally grown are usually superior, as well. For rapid healing, one must eat mainly the preferred vegetables from the list of preferred vegetables. Ideally, 10 or more well-cooked vegetables with each meal.
Vegetables need to be pressure-cooked for no more than 3 minutes or steamed, boiled or slow-cooked for no more than about 45 minutes. Do not fry, broil, roast or bake vegetables. Also, preferably do not stir-fry or sauté vegetables. These produce toxic chemicals.
- Eat only whole, natural foods. This means: no protein powders, no green drinks, smoothies or shakes, no juices except 10-12 ounces of carrot or wheat grass juice away from meals, no eggs whites only, no egg beaters and no food bars.
- Eat animal quality protein twice every day, and eat protein three times daily. For rapid development, do not eat a vegetarian diet. Animal protein includes red meat such as lamb, goat, organic or grass-fed beef, dark meat chicken, sardines, eggs and a little goat yogurt. However, limit the portion size for adults to 4-5 ounces or 110-140 grams of protein per serving, and no more.
- Eat warming foods only. All food tends to either warm the body or cool it down. These are physics qualities. Warming means faster motion of the atoms and molecules. It is also more compact, with more inward and downward movement of subtle energy. Some teachings use other equivalent words such as yang and yin in Chinese medicine and Macrobiotics.
Warming foods includes meats, eggs, cooked vegetables, and whole grains. Other foods such as fruit, raw vegetables, most juices, all food powders, and sweets of all kinds tend to cool the body and this slows development.
For this reason, do not eat sugar, honey, maple syrup, agave nectar, coconut products such as coconut water, coconut cream or coconut milk, soda pop, fruit juice or much fruit or milk. Also, do not eat sweetened foods such as cookies, cakes, ice cream, pastries, all desserts, and many breads.
- Do not drink any liquids with meals. Have drinking water before your meal, then wait five minutes or longer before you eat your meal. It also means take your supplements before your meal if you need to have some water to swallow them. Then wait five minutes and then eat your meal. However, it is okay to take supplements during or right after a meal.
Do not have smoothies, shakes, protein drinks, superfood drinks, frappes or any other drinks that combine water or other liquids with food. This is much harder on digestion and too yin. If you have carrot juice, have it alone. Then wait at least half an hour before eating a meal.
- Use sea salt with all meals. Preferable brands are Hain and Hawaiian Bamboo Jade. Use sea salt to taste, including on meats. Sea salt in moderation does not raise blood pressure or cause other problems. Avoid standard table salt, which is a processed and toxic product. Also avoid salt substitutes such as potassium chloride.

- Acceptable fats and oils are butter, cream, tallow, lamb fat, olive oil (not heated), and a little of other vegetable oils.
- AVOID coconut oil and avocado oil. They are too yin. Vary your extra fats and oils.
Drink about 3 quarts or 3 liters of water daily. More should not be needed. This is more than most people are accustomed to drinking. The best water to drink for this program is spring water or if you tap water is safe to drink, carbon-filtered or sand-filtered tap water. In some nations, tap water is not safe to drink. You can buy spring water in plastic bottles. Other types of drinking water are not recommended. Particularly avoid reverse osmosis water and alkaline waters.
You may have one cup of coffee daily, though it is not ideal. You may also have one cup of regular tea or one cup daily of a mild herbal tea. You may also have up to 4 ounces of cows or goat milk if you are not allergic to it. Avoid nut and seed milks. Avoid all juices, except for 10-12 ounces of carrot juice daily or 1-2 ounces of wheat grass juice twice per week.
