Dietary emphasis - Heavy breakfast with emphasis on protein - either from concentrated plant sources such as red algae, hemp hearts, nuts, seeds, bee pollen, or animal protein prepared with as little fat as possible (beef, organ meats, chicken, fish). Protein at breakfast supplies more energy and decreases appetite later in day; too little protein creates a craving for sweets later on.
Meals - Lunch is moderate to heavy, as it is best to consume the majority of your calories by 2:00pm. Salad is best eaten after meat and grain. Dinner is best early and light with vegetables, legumes, and/or fruit. Minimize dairy. Include variety and rotate menus.
Main focus - Be happy.

My nature is curious and creative with a childlike openness. My appearance is somewhat childlike. I exhibit a childlike joy and love for life. I am stimulated by finding ways to bring more joy and happiness into my environment, and the world in general. I possess mental acuity and clarity, which I balance through trusting my intuition. I am logical, analytical and systematic, with a natural aptitude for computers. Physical exercise is a challenge for me and requires significant discipline.
I have strong imagination and reason. Learning stimulates me. I am respectful of others and of life. I am generous and giving, often to the point of spreading myself too thin. I am social and receptive, and others easily cooperate with me. I am dependable and reliable and keep my promises. I stay with a project until it’s completed. I am forgiving in relationships until I’m finished. With me, when relationships are over they are over. Conflict makes me uneasy, and I delay or avoid confrontation. I will let a problem build up until I’m forced to deal with it.
I tend to make life fun, approaching it with a childlike openness and innocence. I am considered fun to be around. I am lighthearted and creative. I am extremely responsible and capable, preferring mental over physical activity. I am stimulated by new ideas and concepts, which I use to bring me happiness. My ultimate rewarding experience is to feel happy. I have maintained my childhood wide-eyed innocence and openness as an adult. My strong mental acuity allows me to take what I learn and use it to assist others so that they can be happy too.
