The Do Not Eat List : Exclusive Interview with Dr. Alejandro Junger

Wednesday Oct 1 | BY |
| Comments (51)

This ground cover is ALL blueberries… definitely on the DO eat list.

A lot of experts have a do not eat list…

Some say eat this and not that, others say don’t eat nightshades or macronutrients like carbs or too much protein.

Regardless, there are foods that most all of them will agree on. In this second part of my interview with Dr. Alejandro Junger, we talk about these foods, as well as alcohol, coffee, detoxification supplements and more.

Here’s where you can listen to this second half now (my written thoughts follow)…

Here are my thoughts:

1. The do not eat list…

Anything white, sugar, coffee, alcohol, gluten, anything with chemicals added.

It’s a simple list and I think there’s much less argument about many of these than with others — particularly macronutrients, plant families, or animal foods.

2. Coffee like a whip to the adrenals.

We chatted about coffee quickly and I liked how Dr. Junger described it — “a whip to the adrenals.”

Chocolate can do the same thing.

3. “Jesus turned water into wine, he didn’t turn water into green juice.”

This was a great quote from Dr. Junger, that he said when we were discussing alcohol. He’s positive that regular use is not optimal, but when he said this he was referencing the historic use of wine in ceremony. His thought was maybe there is something to it and it has it’s place.

So, yes, Jesus did not turn water into green juice. And I, too, believe that there is some medicinal and ceremonial use for alcohol. I also, and maybe Dr. Junger would agree too, believe that if Jesus had a Greenstar, he’d think twice about drinking the wine.

4. On health food fanatics…

It’s not worth stressing out so much about your food that you create an acidic environment in the body. Dr. Junger talks about a cousin of his that is so fanatically about her diet that she’s always stressed out.

Believe me, I know what this is like.

I’ve been there too.

I can remember a time when the only thing I thought about was where I was going to get my next meal and if I would be able to get the exact food that I wanted.

It was constant stress. I’m sure it affected me negatively — and I definitely know it got my friends and family pissed off at me from time to time…

5. Detoxification supplements?

Dr. Junger was careful not to recommend any blanket supplement for detoxification. He did mention the importance of fiber and enzymes, but made it clear that a supplement isn’t going to be the entire answer. Detoxification is a whole body activity, not a take a supplement and forget it process.

6. The Clean Program…

We talked briefly about the Clean Program, which is a program that Dr. Junger has created. It’s a program for busy people. Dr. Junger explains that the fastest way to cleanse is water fasting. Then juice fasting and then a raw food program follow. The more you digest, the slower the detox. He also mentions that some of these programs can be to detoxifying for those who live in crowded areas. So his program is kind of an intermediary system that combines a lot of what we know about health with the practicality of real life.

7. You cannot argue with success.

I asked Dr. Junger what his colleagues thought about him when he left cardiology to get into natural medicine. He told me, at first, they thought he was throwing away his career. But as soon as he was able to show results, they started to think differently.

Basically, nothing speaks louder than results when it comes to proving to anyone — particularly the medical community — that a natural remedy or protocol works.

Your question of the day: What foods are on your do not eat list?

Kevin Gianni is a health author, activist and blogger. He started seriously researching personal and preventative natural health therapies in 2002 when he was struck with the reality that cancer ran deep in his family and if he didn’t change the way he was living — he might go down that same path. Since then, he’s written and edited 6 books on the subject of natural health, diet and fitness. During this time, he’s constantly been humbled by what experts claim they know and what actually is true. This has led him to experiment with many diets and protocols — including vegan, raw food, fasting, medical treatments and more — to find out what is myth and what really works in the real world.

Kevin has also traveled around the world searching for the best protocols, foods, medicines and clinics around and bringing them to the readers of his blog — which is one of the most widely read natural health blogs in the world with hundreds of thousands of visitors a month from over 150 countries around the world.

  1. Megan says: has a study that had found that caffenine actually reduced your risk for certain chronic and degeneratve illnesses such as Alzhiemers.

  2. Sylvia says:

    He mentioned fermentation while discussing alcohol. My question is, is it what is fermented or is fermented foods not a good thing to consume. I was under the impression that some fermented foods were very good for the digestive system. I ferment cabbage with other veg added, am I wrong to think that is healthy? Also I consume homemade kefir which can cause the kefir to be a very low alcohol level (0.5 – 1.0 I think), is this also not healthy?

  3. Norman Hawker says:

    1. Sugar in all its disguises – especially high fructose corn syrup. I eat berries and other low-glycemic fruits sparingly, and indulge in a couple of deglet noor dates with raw nuts.

    2. Wheat, and grains in general. Might occasionally have rice or quinoa.

    3. Processed oils – soybean, peanut, sunflower, safflower, canola, and any hydrogenated oils. Replace with coconut oil, olive oil.

    4. Dairy. Cheese was the last to go!

    5. Chemicals – Aspartame or anything made by Monsanto, sucralose, MSG, food coloring, prescription drugs, vaccinations, antibiotics.

  4. Megan says:

    I want to see primary studies. I really don’t care about opinion. It’s all about FACT vs. MYTH. Not about what experts believe to be the “right@ thing based on their biased observations alone.

  5. Sam says:

    Megan, I couldn’t agree more!

    That said, for me wheat is on my do-not-eat list. I get terrible lower back ache (of all things!) when I eat much of it. It took me a long time to work that one out.

  6. Derek says:

    I’m most strict about avoiding refined vegetable oils like soybean, canola, and sunflower oils as well as trans fats and anything deep fried.

    I generally avoid most artificial stuff added to food as well since I make most of my own meals from whole foods.

    While I don’t advocate heavy caffeine or coffee drinking, that is one of those things there is some debate about. I personally enjoy coffee regularly, but I rarely have more than 2 cups a day and could take it or leave it.

  7. Coffee, in moderation, was found to be ok in the many studies that were done, just make sure it’s ORGANIC coffee !

  8. Patricia says:

    Megan, watch “Sugar:The Bitter Truth” video on U tube by Dr. Lustig. The one that is 1:29mins long. It’s ALL FACT and No Myth.
    Dr. Junger’s book “Clean” is pretty good and a good “tool” to use if one want to clean toxins out of the body. But, like I said watch Dr. Lustig’s video if you want all FACTS.

  9. Ryan says:

    Megan, you can’t get degenerative diseases without eating unhealthy foods in the first place.. Detox is a whole body activity as mentioned above, don’t rely on foods for “reducing this and that” it’s such a backward way of thinking.

  10. I don’t eat anything white, no wheat or anything with gluten, no processed foods but I do use raw milk and make my own cheese, yogurt and butter which I use very sparingly. However, I love coffee! My one vice but it’s organic. Also, love coconut oil. I use it, my dogs get a daily dose along with enzymes – the same ones that I take.

  11. Lance says:

    Dr. Junger knows his stuff! Here’s some more great information and reviews about his “Clean Program:”

    I think the subject of wine is interesting. I’ve been told that they way they made wine back then was different than most wines we buy today. I think one of the biggest differences is all the nitrates in wine now.

    I am curious if anyone has found some good info on whether the benefits outweigh the harmful effects of nitrates (and alcohol for that matter).

  12. Winter Fey says:

    I have never heard of Dr. Junger before, but I absolutely love his message, information, and heart! Incredible! He genuinely cares about humanity and our health and wellness. I’m awed! Thank you Kevin for such a beautiful interview <3

  13. Winter Fey says:

    P.S. I recently got my allergy test done and I tested positive for candida as well as my neurotransmitters being out of whack. I have attention deficit combined type. I went off the pill in January and saw amazing improvements in my intuition, lessened chemical sensitivity, improved libido, and improved mood. In the end of May, I took out allergenic foods (including garlic and kale, so what is good for one person isn’t always good for everyone), gluten, sugar, and processed foods. I eat organic chicken, fish, vegetables, cooked and raw, a green smoothie daily, low added fats, occasional organic potatoes (not white) popcorn with canola oil, and that’s about it. My ADD is improving dramatically, I have energy to take long walks, my rashes only happen when I eat something that doesn’t digest properly, I’m happier, clearer, my life is just exponentially better. Blood and allergy testing, a digestive enzyme, probiotics, a multi vitamin without kale, (I was taking raw multis with kale in them that were making me sick), a low dose liver supplement, getting off the pill, and eating a diet tailor made for me, saved my life and marriage. I also use homeopathic and essential oil remedies, since I am too sensitive to adaptogenic herbs that are usually recommended for adrenal fatigue, and my stress and anxiety have significantly diminished. I can be the person I’ve always wanted to be now. <3

  14. Rebecca Cody says:

    My biggest No-No is aspartame. I never used it much, and it took awhile to figure out what happened, but I once used it in coffee while on a date at a nice restaurant. In the middle of the night I had a severe seizure. They rushed me to a hospital and I finally woke up 32 hours later. Later I had other seizures. Once I figured it out, I have scrupulously avoided aspartame and I’ve been both seizure- and Dilantan-free for many years.

    The second biggest thing I avoid is trans fats.

  15. Angel says:

    I would suspect any study that says coffee is beneficial is done by someone making money on it. Coffee is one of the worst things someone can put into their body.

    1. It’s highly acidic
    2. it robs the body of important minerals such as magnesium, calcium, iron, etcc
    3. It robs the body of important vitamins such as b vitamins including b12
    4. It releases cortisol the stress hormone. I think we all know what stress does to the body
    4. Weakens the adrenal glands, kidneys
    5. Severely dehydrating

    I could list more but i’m sure you get the point 😉

  16. Valerie says:

    Let me say many extreme health fanatics I know are not any Healthier than others who eat in moderation and are not into fear having just said that I avoid dairy eat mostly organic
    I drink the rare cup of coffee regular organic is better than decaffenated(the process is not worth it)( I only started to have the odd cup yes I grew up in a country with the best coffee but at mid age I just started to do this,Read about the benifits
    Unless a person produces their own food its difficult to control the quality.
    Emotional well being is important.I do what my body tells me not some guy what is good for one may be poison for the other!

    Coffee enemas is used in a lot of detoxification programs successfully so it has its place

  17. Gini says:

    I basically listen to my own body and not just what the “experts” say. I avoid sugar, corn syrup, etc, gluten, meat, milk. I don’t eat nightshades but only because if I do I have severe joint inflammation. Coffee gives me the jitters but I can drink white tea.

    Kevin, thanks for the summary. My computer sound is out.

  18. Cherie says:

    Soy anything is on my do not eat list.

  19. Tom says:

    Also see You Tube: The Skinny on Obesity – four vignettes – 8-9 mins each – really digests Sugar the Bitter Truth into layman’s language. To your health!

  20. Ed says:

    Hi Kev,”Great Book” is often overused, but the Doc really put one together here with “CLEAN”. The Docs’explanation of mucoid plaque and the misinformation about it is something I hope you can ask about next time. When you do I’m curious about his “I Clean” product a single strain probiotic and what it’s target might be? Till then I’ll just keep chuckling about Valeries’ comment about coffee enemas and coffee having it’s place.

  21. Eve says:

    I would characterize Dr J’s list as a detoxification-oriented diet. Evidence exists for completely avoiding some of the things on the list, others not so much.

    SOmeone posted “you can’t get degenerative diseases without eating unhealthy foods in the first place”…that’s not actually true. Degenerative diseases have always existed in humans and in animals, regardless of their diets. We can influence health significantly with diet, but this statement goes too far.

    Likewise, some items demonized as anti-health have extremely strong evidence to the contrary: namely, alcohol and coffee.

    If there were one or two studies nefariously funded by those who stand to benefit from sales of these products, I’d be suspicious – but that isn’t the case.

    And the research doesn’t say – light to moderate consumption is healthier than heavy use. It says light-to-moderate is healthier than ABSTAINING and healthier than heavy use. With coffee, some benefits increase with higher levels of consumption.

    Also note: protective effects (of alcohol especially) do NOT occur with “occasional” use; it must be low-to-moderate daily or near-daily use. It appears that our bodies learn to use these substances for health purposes only if they are ingested regularly. Some studies show moderate use to have more benefits than light use.

    SO if you only have a drink or a coffee “occasionally”, don’t fool yourself by thinking you are in the category of “healthier” alcohol or coffee consumption.

    Don’t guilt yourself either – just be realistic about it.

    If you have a coffee once in awhile, then yes, it is “like a whip to the adrenals”. If you drink it every day, it has health benefits. (As with everything, I say choose organic whenever possible…)

    Maybe this research doesn’t apply to those of us who make extraordinarily healthy food choices – but that study hasn’t been done. I hope it’s the case, since I don’t actually drink coffee. (I like to think my daily cup or two of tea is equivalent.) But I like knowing that having a glass of wine with dinner most nights is adding to my health, not harming me.

    Since like some of you, I, too, demand hard science, I offer the following sources for my statements about coffee and alcohol (and there are many, many more):

    1. Coffee Consumption and Risk of Type 2 Diabetes (JAMA)
    2. Consumption of Coffee is Associated With Reduced Risk of Death Attributed to Inflammatory and cardiovascular diseases in the Iowa Women’s Health Study (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition)
    3. Content of Redox-Active Compounds (ie, antioxidants) in Foods Consumed in the United States (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition)
    4. Coffee, Cirrhosis, and Transaminase Enzymes (Archives of Internal Medicine)
    5. Caffeine Decreases Exercise-Induced Myocardial Flow Reserve (Journal of the American College of Cardiology)
    6. Coffee May Trigger Heart Attack (JAMA)

    Moderate drinkers tend to have better health and live longer than those who are either abstainers or heavy drinkers.
    Sensible drinking also appears to be beneficial in reducing or preventing diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, bone fractures and osteoporosis, kidney stones, digestive ailments, stress and depression, poor cognition and memory, Parkinson’s disease, hepatitis A, pancreatic cancer, macular degeneration (a major cause of blindness), angina pectoris, duodenal ulcer, erectile dysfunction, hearing loss, gallstones, liver disease and poor physical condition in elderly… fewer heart attacks and strokes, less likely to suffer hypertension or high blood pressure, peripheral artery disease, Alzheimer’s disease and the common cold…

    One Virginia Tech study shows that heavy drinking, defined as at least three drinks, three or more days a week, is even worse for you than abstaining. (Although not by much, and non-drinkers were more susceptible to heart disease.)

  22. Serena says:

    I would like to know what kind of damage can be done by juice fasting for longer than the few days that Dr. Junger says can safely be done alone. He says that it starts firing back. What does he mean by that? I just came off of a 21 day juice fast myself. What dangers are there?

  23. David King says:

    Very interesting interview! Glad you shared it… thanks for posting! what he said about juicing is interesting.

  24. Sue Rushford says:

    I’m sure everything I eat is on somebody’s DNE list – here is mine:

    ALL ANIMAL PRODUCTS – for ethical reasons – I am not convinced whether they are necessary for health or not – they may be, but I seem to be doing ok without them for 25 years(?).

    GMO-containing foods (best I can!)

    HIGHLY PROCESSED FOODS – table salt, white sugar, white flour, refined vegetable oils

    ARTIFICIAL colorings, flavorings, additives, chemical sugar substitutes

    I used to drink a full cup of coffee daily, gave it up totally for 4 years effortlessly – didn’t notice any difference in anything, so picked it back up just 1/2 a cup a most days.

    I have 1-3 bites of chocolate most days. No idea if it’s doing anything bad, but I’m not aware.

    I’ll have 1 alcoholic drink every other week – just drink extra water, chlorella, & rejuvelac the next day.

    I’ve cut way down on gluten – will maybe have something with gluten once a week. Perhaps need to make more of an effort to ditch gluten.

    As far as oils, I’ll do extra virgin, cold pressed, organic, blah blah blah coconut oil, olive oil, flax seed oil, sasha inchi oil.

    I’m good with limited beans & legumes.

    Not much of a sweet tooth, but I’ll use dates, maple syrup, coconut crystals, maple crystals, stevia – some xylitol, rapidura, and agave.

    I understand grains should be sprouted if consumed because of the lectins/enzyme inhibitors – I still do some grains most days – so sue me 🙂

    Eve aid:

    Eve, does that include non-drinkers that take a resveratrol supplement?

    I forgot to include artificial sweeteners in my earlier comment. Also unfermented soy and GMO soy (so I eat only fermented organic non-GMO soy) But if I was a man would not eat it at all.

  26. Ira Edwards says:

    Ramiel Nagel, in his book HEALING TOOTH DECAY puts together reliable information from several sources to show how rotting teeth can be remineralized with good food. Teeth are nourished from within from the blood stream, not from what is in the mouth. His nutrition information is great for the whole body, not just the teeth. The most effective nutrients are high-vitamin butter oil and fermented cod liver oil. His list of don’ts is not much different from yours.

  27. Tbug says:

    The only way to eat is from the gift of NATURE… PERIOD! Why can’t people understand that the shell of the flesh was placed on this planet for no other reason than to love and nurture the gift of life???? Why do we seek the illusion of processed and powdered additives that many still “CLASSIFY AS LIVE FOOD” when it is in fact an illusional belief of indoctrination???

  28. Brenda says:

    I avoid Gluten and sugar, coffee, alcohol, processed food, artificial anything, GMO, soy, anything cooked in a microwave oven. That is my main list. I prefer to eat organic. I am selective and not finatical. Life is good.
    Kevin, you are amazing! 😀

  29. Nadine says:

    I want to comment on the article written (Dr Junger) above about the miracle done through Jesus Christ turning water into wine.. How anyone can claim that it was alcoholic wine that Jesus made is completely inaccurate. How can alcoholic wine represent Jesus’s blood?? Think about it! Jesus Christ was sinless. As the wedding was for about a week the grape juice started fermenting/alcoholic there was no refrigeration to keep it cool. The miracle was fresh grape/wine unprocessed juice.

  30. Sue says:

    I have read a lot of these comments, and myself over a period of many years have tried a variation of so many recommended ways of eating. I embrace all of them but have realised that as many have said people react chemically in so many different ways to food and drink of any kind. Also food has changed so
    Much our soil our water and so on. This day and age is presenting with a never ending battle for people who have the awareness of what is going on. All the information given and researched by so many passionate people is refreshing, but personally now after so much trying of this and that I now adopt the way of eating and drinking as to what my body likes and dislikes. My self awareness is now so precise it’s my best guide. I will say that I follow the organic route where ever possible and have not eaten a variety of many foods now for a lot of years. We never stop learning and things are always changing.

  31. Qbmc Qman says:

    My guess is that the wine Jesus made was more health-giving than any drink we have ever made even our raw green juices, so yes, I would drink His wine. And if he made beer, I’d drink that,too. I do not drink alcoholic beverages of any kind but I’d drink His. Today’s alcoholic drinks are laced with toxic chemicals. How do I know? If I were to drink a can of beer, I would have a blistering headache before I finished one can of the stuff. That does not happen when I used to drink homemade beer. I agree that no one should drink alcohol if they want better health.

  32. Qbmc Qman says:

    When it comes to Bloomberg’s plan to reduce the size of the tumblers, I agree there is much else that needs doing besides that.

    At the same time, however, us health nuts don’t buy soda so we don’t understand the marketing. Competition between soda companies is very stiff so they invent ways to get a bigger piece of the market share. One way is to offer a huge serving for almost nothing. If the serving (glass) was smaller, they would probably offer free refills to make up for the reduction in size compete.

    Sodas and the various sports and other drinks, in my opinion should be outlawed all together. They are cancer in a can/glass and it would be an end to a lot plastic bottles.

    They could start by educating people about the humungous dangers of drinking these beverages. Then watch the hammer come down weilded by Coke and Pepsi.

  34. Bryan says:

    What Sue said. I think one has to come to some realization as to how/why they consume food and note that some things make them feel certain ways. As one refines this sense of how their body feels, they may begin to note when they feel better and if foods are part of the noticing, then a conversation as to more specific and purposeful eating can ensue. I have felt healthy and not seen a doctor for at least 5 years now. I know blood testing would help me zero in faster than just intuition and body feedback, but that is another conversation.

    So my only absolute nots are meat (including eggs) and alcohol (pretty much nevers are the artifical sweeteners) due to the evolution of my diet becoming part of a spiritual practice I have committed to for life. Other things on the list above I have very sparingly and mostly avoid, but am not going to get my mind worked up about as the chemicals my brain makes over stress feel worse than a little wheat or sugar.

  35. reen says:

    Nadine is correct – Jesus never would have turned water into an alcoholic beverage – not only would that not represent His blood, it would go against all of His teachings. He was all about us being healthy (whole = ‘holy’). If we followed the original diet that our creator told us to consume (Gen. 1:11 – 29)we probably would have never met Kevin (sorry, Kev!). A total vegan diet. And if you look at verse 30 you will probably be shocked to learn that the same vegan diet was for animals, yes, even lions and tigers and bears, oh, my! The only time flesh meat was prescribed was after the flood for obvious reasons – all vegetation was destroyed. And immediately the lifespan shortened drastically and the and stature of man deteriorated. Alcohol does have a purpose in the Bible – it is for the dying. The term ‘wine’ for both fermented and unfermented grape juice must be applied in context and against the backdrop of biblical law to arrive at the correct use of the term.

  36. naomi says:

    hey rosemarie, lighten up love! 🙂
    Flour, sugar, soy, salad dressings etc Kev’s taught me a lot about health!

  37. Laura says:

    No ‘way to eat’ is right for everybody. Read a book called Diet Wise by British doctor Keith Scott-Mumby to find out how to discover the foods that don’t work for you personally. It’s not an easy program, but it works.

  38. Lorie B. says:

    Why does everyone have to be right? There is a bit of truth to everything! It
    May not be truth for you, but it applies somewhere and in some way;)!! Know YOUR body! Share what WORKS FOR YOU! Be a light for someone else so they may find THEIR path…instead of using your experience as a torch to scare them onto yours!! Thanks Kevin for all you do!

  39. Julie Stander says:

    My purpose in commenting is to direct your attention to the recorded lectures of Rudolf Steiner about diet and nutrition. He spoke about alcohol, coffee and tea, raw versus cooked, many specific vegetables, meat and milk consumption, and the way the human body interacts with foods. Dr. Steiner understood the spiritual aspect of nutrition. You might find his ideas interesting.

  40. Joanie says:

    I agree with all except coffee. I drink 2-3 cups per day and don’t have any “adrenal fatigue”… I’ve never been healthier. Is there a major study done that even says that moderate caffeine consumption is bad?

  41. Lucy says:

    In Indian philosophy we learn that that we eat not only through mouth but through our ears, eyes and thoughts too. So degenerative disease is in this philosophy coming from thinking and of course that effects what eat, how we think about what we eat, how we react to what we see and hear etc etc which of course affects the digestion and general functioning of our system. Balance in all areas is key…..if you see something crave it but don’t eat it will still affect your body because you have mentally ingested it in thinking about it againa and again. This is why some people cure themselves through diet of cancer and others do not….those that do have made some mental changes too even if very subtle…….having said this a change in diet due the change in vibrations can have a subtle effect on your thinking when the acid environment in the body is reduced…..if you let it!

  42. jerial beattie says:

    i wanted to check on the quality of company “only NATURAL”. i AM VERY WARY OF COMPANIES WHO ARE REALLY PHARMI COMPANIES, i.e. New chapter. thank you for any help you can give me. Jerry Beattie

  43. Jackie says:

    Is there a part 1?

  44. Ryan says:

    Gluten itself may not be the main causes of the issues with wheat, I would say avoiding wheat itself is probably more on the mark than avoiding gluten or maybe just all foods with high phytic acid levels.

  45. David says:

    Actually, it was a German doctor Joanna Budwig, and not Charlotte Gerson who first began to use flaxseed oil in her cancer protocol. Not that it matters, but I thought your teaser using the male possessive pronoun a little misleading, if not adding insult to injury.

  46. Colin Walsh says:

    What about animal foods? Why have these been left off the ‘do not eat’ list? Surely an ex-cardiologist should be aware of the work of Dean Ornish and Caldwell Esselstyn? Getting this wrong convinces me that this guy flies with the mumbo-jumbo crowd. ‘You can’t argue with success’? Yes you can, if it’s all bullshit!

  47. Kay Smith says:

    I get your podcasts – enjoy listening to them. However, on The Do Not Eat List episode one — at the end it was mentioned about buckwheat — not sure you said sprouted buckwheat — is sprouted buckwheat on your do not eat list? I just soaked, sprouted, and dehydrated for cereal.
    I would also like to suggest a podcast on what to eat/drink before working out and after – I play tennis and also workout. Eating before is an issue since I have to be careful and not get too many carbs (even nuts) — since my blood sugar crashes if I do. Thanks, Kay

    Rune Factory is at the most basic element Harvest Moon 2.
    The resulting movie proved a smash hit with criticcs annd moviegoers
    alike, generating a steady streamm of visitors to Don Lansing’s farm that now numbers 65,000
