The Optimal Diet is not a form of medical treatment. It is the correct nutritional supply template of all the necessary nutritional elements needed by the body in order to sustain a healthy life. Diseased individuals who adopt this type of nutrition quickly return to health, regardless of the type of disease, since the diet does not treat the particular disease, as does a pill or a specific treatment. The causal treatment associated with the Optimal Diet is based on the delivery of the most important nutritional elements, e.g., the most valuable proteins and fats, whilst leaving the body in charge of the distribution of these elements to the most critical areas. Thus, the Optimal Diet firstly treats the underlying disease and then subsequently (rapidly) removes the burden of unnecessary body weight, whilst increasing the strength, the energy, the resistance and the vitality of the body.
And that is how the principles of the therapeutic function of this diet should be understood.
Therefore, this type of diet, or rather a healthy eating habit, can and should be adopted by sick and healthy individuals. Various disease states, which can be corrected (and in many cases cured) by the Optimal Diet are described below.

The principles of the Optimal Diet
The main principle of this dietary model is a marked increase in the consumption of fat, and the reduction in the consumption carbohydrate, as the energy source for the body. There are, however, strict rules on the proportion between the three main food components, protein, fat and carbohydrates, which need to be followed (with few exceptions) in order to achieve claimed benefits of the Optimal Diet.
The ideal proportion between the main food components of protein, fat and carbohydrates should be in the range of:
m m 1 : 2.5 - 3.5 : 0.5
In order to work out the correct daily food intake using this proportion, one has to know how many grams of protein needs to be ingested in a day to satisfy body's requirements. This amount varies from person to person and depends on a "due body weight". Due body weight, in kilograms, is equal to person's height in centimetres less 100 (± 10%). Thus, for a person 160 cm tall, a due body weight is 60 kg ± 6 kg.
A correct amount of protein to be consumed in a day is approx. 1 g per 1 kilogram of a due body weight. Thus, a 60 kg person needs to consume 60 ± 6 g of protein to satisfy body's daily needs. Any excess of protein, above the daily requirement, is converted by the body to fat, provided energy requirements are met by other components.
Having worked out the amount of protein, one can then calculate the amount of other components in a daily menu. Thus, for our typical 60 kg person, the consumption of 60 g of protein has to be accompanied by between 150 to 210 g of fat, and 30 to 50 g of carbohydrate in order to follow the principles of the Optimal Diet.


For the last few years I have been suffering from ulcerative inflammation of the colon, ulcer disease, diabetes, hypertension and neurasthenia. I was very sick and weak, I had strong headaches, severe abdomen pains and diarrhoea; my stools contained blood. The pressure on the left ureter causing urine retention in the kidney was a result of intestine disease according to my medics. I was taking heaps of medication for my problems; I weighed 115 kg.
I have been implementing the optimal diet for the last 6 weeks. During that time I have lost 18 kg of body weight! My blood sugar level was between 18-22 mmol (224-280 mg%) even though every day I took 6 pills to reduce it.
I stopped taking the diabetes pills after only 5 days and since then the sugar level has remained within the normal range. I stopped taking the anti-hypertension pills after a week since the blood pressure has normalised. These days a typical pressure is 115/65.
The stomach pains and heartburn were gone after 1 day on the diet.
The abdomen pains, although persisting are minimal, I have no diarrhoea, nor blood in my stools. Urinary retention is gone. There has been a great improvement in my neurosis; I stopped taking sedatives from day one of the diet. I am full of energy and strong. I have regained the will to live and my enjoyment of life. I have forgotten what a headache is.
