1What does the diet consist of?
The diet can vary significantly for each individual, ranging from completely vegetarian to purely carnivorous. What the diets have in common is the exclusion of all unhealthy and non-essential additives. These include white sugar, refined cooking salt, artificial sweeteners (aspartame), various E-numbers, colourings and preservatives. The diets also exclude pork, strong alcoholic drinks and beer, commercial cow’s milk and sugary design products on principle, as well as all genetically modified soy, wheat and rye products, products containing peanuts or pistachios and blue cheeses.

2What is the reason for organic food?
Normal fruits and vegetables contain legally permitted levels of toxic chemicals such as pesticides. Although they are permissible individually, when added together the quantities often exceed the accepted limits. The human body cannot process these synthetic toxins properly and ultimately gets sick from them. In principle, organic food with the Eco label, or (better yet) biodynamically grown food such as Demeter, does not contain these toxins. However, because these products too can be perishable, it is important to take due care during food preparation. Organic does not automatically mean ‘good’.
