As for the nutrition principles, Phillips also weighs in with his suggestions. Eat six meals a day, one every two to three hours. All meals should have a portion of protein and carbohydrates. Add a serving of vegetables to at least two meals. Watch portion sizes.
Also, be sure to eat one tablespoon of unsaturated oil daily or three portions of salmon a week. Drink at least 10 cups of water a day. To ensure you're getting optimal levels of required nutrients, consume performance-nutrition shake and follow the regimen of dietary supplements.
In addition, Phillips recommends consuming a tablespoon of safflower, flaxseed, sesame or canola oil each day to give necessary Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids. The diet breaks down to about 40%-50% protein, the same for carbohydrates, and very little fat.
