Key Points Regarding the 12 Diet Types 

  • Start gently and implement slowly. Leaning into your ideal digestion is a lifelong endeavor. Don’t feel like it is something you need to do overnight. 
  • To start, look at the conditions of your ideal diet and think about easy things you can change that lean into your ideal digestion type. 
  • One clue that you are leaning into your ideal digestion is feeling a sigh of relief. Very often, our natural inclination is to eat in alignment with our ideal digestion but we tell ourselves that we should be eating differently because of external advice around what being “healthy” looks like. 

Consecutive Appetite 

  • Theme: Simplicity
  • You are designed to eat one thing at a time with a focus on unprocessed, whole foods.
  • For example, if you have three foods on a plate – a veggie, rice and chicken – you would want to eat one food first, another food second and the third food last. The order is not important.

Alternating Appetite 

  • Theme: Simplicity but it’s the beginning of mixing foods.
  • You are designed to focus on whole foods and cooking foods simply like adding lemon or sprinkling herbs to season.
  • Avoid heavily processed foods.

Open Taste 

  • Theme: Repetition
  • You are designed to eat the same thing everyday.
  • Eat seasonally. Instead of focusing on variety each day or week, think about getting a variety during the course of a year. 
  • It is energetically correct for you to try new foods but you will know right away if you do or don’t like it. There is likely more of a desire to try new foods.

Closed Taste 

  • Theme: Repetition
  • You are designed to eat the same thing everyday
  • Eat seasonally. Instead of focusing on variety each day or week, think about getting a variety during the course of a year.
  • There is likely *less* of a desire to try new foods so it is energetically correct for you to not want to try new foods. You will already know whether you will like something or not before trying it. 

Hot Food 

  • Theme: Temperature
  • It is energetically correct for you to eat hot foods or foods at a higher temperature because your body tends to run cold.
  • Add warming spices to your foods.
  • If eating something cold like a smoothing, allow it to warm up a little bit before drinking it.

Cold Food 

  • Theme: Temperature
  • It is energetically correct for you eat cold foods or foods at a cooler temperature because your body tends to run hot.
  • Avoid warming spices where possible.
  • If eating something hot, allow it to cool a bit before you eat it.

Calm Atmosphere 

  • Theme: Atmosphere
  • It is energetically correct for you to avoid talking while eating. Your optimal digestion requires a chill, peaceful environment.
  • If meeting people out for dinner, consider eating something before you go and plan to order something light at the meal like an appetizer or salad.

Buzzing Atmosphere 

  • Theme: Atmosphere 
  • It is energetically correct for you to eat in an environment that is lively and stimulating. You may also eat on the move or eat standing up.
  • Disregard the external voices that say it is more healthy to eat in quiet. You are designed to eat while working, talking or watching TV. 

High Sound 

  • Theme: Volume 
  • You are designed to eat with the stimulation of sound because your brain works well with stimulation. 
  • Consider including meditation music in the background or any sound that feels good to you and revs you up. 
  • Create a playlist for meal times.

Low Sound 

  • Theme: Volume
  • You are designed to eat with minimal stimulation from sounds in your environment. 
  • Figure out what works best for you – you may like music that is playing at a low volume in the background. You may prefer some white noise or even complete silence. 

Direct Light

  • Theme: Frequency
  • Your brain is designed to thrive with the stimulation of light.
  • It is energetically correct for you to eat your biggest meal in the middle of the day.
  • If you are invited to a late dinner – eat your biggest meal in the daytime and eat something light that evening.

Indirect Light 

  • Theme: Frequency 
  • Your brain is designed to thrive in low light or soft lighting.
  • It is energetically correct for you to avoid eating (or eating something light) during the daylight hours and eat your largest meal in the evening. 
  • Don’t listen to the external voices that tell you not to eat at night or before bed. Your brain requires the calories before you sleep.
