Sutton Diet Plan

For this diet I've done a lot of research and talked to several people about their diets and what works for them. My diet is a compilation of all of these and my own personal beliefs and ideas.

I believe in the Word of Wisdom which was a commandment from the Lord that is a code of health that if we follow, we are promised blessings.

Doctrine and Covenants 89:7-21
7 And, again, astrong drinks are not for the belly, but for the washing of your bodies. And again, tobacco is not for the abody, neither for the belly, and is not good for man, but is an herb for bruises and all sick cattle, to be used with judgment and skill. And again, hot drinks are not for the body or belly.  And again, verily I say unto you, all wholesome aherbs God hath ordained for the constitution, nature, and use of man— Every herb in the season thereof, and every fruit in the season thereof; all these to be used with aprudence and bthanksgiving. Yea, aflesh also of bbeasts and of the fowls of the air, I, the Lord, have ordained for the use of man with thanksgiving; nevertheless they are to be used csparingly; And it is pleasing unto me that they should not be aused, only in times of winter, or of cold, or bfamine. All agrain is ordained for the use of man and of beasts, to be the staff of life, not only for man but for the beasts of the field, and the fowls of heaven, and all wild animals that run or creep on the earth; And athese hath God made for the use of man only in times of famine and excess of hunger. All grain is good for the afood of man; as also the bfruit of the vine; that which yieldeth fruit, whether in the ground or above the ground—Nevertheless, wheat for man, and corn for the ox, and oats for the horse, and rye for the fowls and for swine, and for all beasts of the field, and barley for all useful animals, and for mild drinks, as also other grain.  And all saints who remember to keep and do these sayings, walking in obedience to the commandments, ashall receive bhealth in their navel and marrow to their bones; And shall afind bwisdom and great ctreasures of dknowledge, even hidden treasures; And shall arun and not be bweary, and shall walk and not faint.  And I, the Lord, give unto them a promise, that the adestroying angel shall bpass by them, as the children of Israel, and not slay them. Amen.
So that's basically my diet right there. Some people like the diets that are meat based, others only want to eat vegetables and no meat. I believe the above passage to be the word of God and I am basing my diet off of what He says.
My doctors say no yeast, no sugar, no processed foods, no soda.
Its basically this: no processed foods, no sugar, fruits and veggies with grains and meat on occasion, and no yeast because my body does not do well with it.
Food to eat:
(I'm not eating much wheat because it usually has yeast in it)
all, especially leafy greens
Spaghetti squash is a great substitute for noodles
mostly fish and chicken
(red meat doesn't make me feel very well)
only plain yogurt- especially ones with probiotics!
(I'm lactose intolerant and my body needs a break)
Almond milk is my milk substitute
I have some almond slices in my granola but yeast free diets recommend staying away from all nuts so I'm compromising with the almonds 
honey- in smallll amounts
coconut oil
olive oil
ranch dressing- this is my one compromise
All other condiments usually have sugar or yeast
homemade fruit Popsicles


  1. Good luck! Brown rice is much healthier than white too, btw. You probably already know that though. Are you going to start exercising too? Or just build up slowly with the diet first?

  2. Yes I have been eating brown rice but I also cheated and had frozen yogurt- but thats healthy right?! haha yes with my fibro its hard to go all out with exercising but I've been using my eliptical and walking and stuff, and using weights so hopefully after a few weeks I can do more and more! Do you exercise when you are pregnant? how does that even work? I'm trying to get as healthy as possible to help with getting pregnant and keeping the baby healthy!

  3. I tried to comment from my phone before but it wouldn't work. Basically get your exercise regime up to what you want it before you're pregnant: because once you become pregnant they tell you that you can exercise at the same level you were before. Otherwise you can increase your exercise but slowly/carefully. So exercise now! I usually go on walks and occasionally go to water aerobics, but unfortunately I wasn't working out before.
