What Dr. Berg Eats
First meal — Mostly a combination of protein and fat with some vegetables (not too much) A few different combinations I like: • 4 eggs with onions and fermented vegetables (without sugar) or raw asparagus • Grass-fed, grass-finished, fatty hamburger (.5Ib) and sauerkraut • Organic summer sausage (8 oz.) with organic grass-fed Swiss cheese • Salmon (8 oz.) fried with olive oil, topped with sea salt, black pepper, and mayo (Primal Kitchen) with olives on the side • A handful of pecans after the meal (if unsatisfied) • Celery and organic valencia salted peanut butter after the meal (if unsatisfied) • Sugar-free chocolate occasionally after the meal (if unsatisfied).
Second meal — Primarily vegetables with a small amount of protein and fat. A few different combinations I like: • 8 cups of salad (arugula or greens mix from the farmer’s market, olive oil, balsamic vinaigrette, sea salt, and avocado or nuts) • 3 1/2 cups of chopped white and red cabbage and carrots, topped with mayo (Primal Kitchen) • 4 cups steamed cauliflower with butter, sea salt, and black pepper Things I may add to my second meal: • 1/2 can cod liver • Summer sausage (4 oz.) • Pecans • Celery and organic valencia salted peanut butter I fry my eggs in beef tallow, and I try to get my greens from the farmer’s market. If I buy greens from the store, they have to be organic. I also consume a lot of organic tomatoes from the farmer’s market or my garden when they’re in season.
