I'd like the listeners to go to TerryWahls.com/diet and get that one-page handout that is a really great summary of the key concepts of the Wahls Diet. You can put that on your refrigerator and they'll help you restructure your approach to food and what this really is.
A goal of nine cups of vegetables/greens, sulfur-rich, color-rich, and some clean meat. A lot of great oil such as olive oil or flax oil hemp oil but this is a great pyramid to get you started in terms of how to think about food.
