The "Wheeler" Mediterranean Diet

Dietary Protocol

The best diet is one that is nutritious and uses sound dietary principles. To be successful, a dietary protocol must be easy to follow, easy to access and be affordable. The basic principle of any diet relies on the intake of calories from your dietary choicesas energy resources, as well as the requisite expenditure of energy (calories lost) associated with daily activities. Any imbalance in the exchange of calories over a 24 hour period will tip the scales by enhancing weight gain or, conversely, weight loss. Beyond a diet that supports a healthy lifestyle, questions surround the “source of calories” that complement the basic food groups.

I believe is that the Mediterranean Diet includes most of the principles associated with healthy eating,although by making or adopting some modifications it can become an even better diet which does not support the growth of cancer. The Modified Mediterranean Diet has become known, to my patients, as the “Wheeler Diet” or “Prostate Diet”. The diet is built on sound nutritional doctrines and avoids controversial foods or nutrients including animal and/or dairy fat, CoQ10, Lycopene, Chondroitin, Flax and Beta carotene. These supplements have been shown to hasten the growth of prostate cancer cells. The principles of the modified dietinclude appropriate nutrition, adequate exercise, stress reduction and education. These principles enable prostate cancer patients to thrive with the disease, while avoiding lifestyle altering treatments, such as radiation or surgery (refer to Prospective Diet and Nutritional Study). In effect, many patients with known cancers are living a better life with cancer than prostate cancer patients who have received definitive treatment. Additionally, a nutritionally validated diet supports systemic healthwhileenhancing maximum output from the various organ systems. In other words, the “Wheeler Diet” specifically promotes a healthy heart, a healthy prostate in men, a healthy colon, a healthy brain and so forth.

Dietary Dedication

Dedication to any dietary plan must come from within. Without question, commitment comes with some level of sacrifice and requires a measure of dedication. After all, most people do not “tune in” to dietary needs until they are in their forties and, by then, the junk food, fast food, muffin munching, cola guzzling and sugar swallowing habits have made a mess of their bodies both internally and externally. Frequently, weight gain is the only indication of real problems that lie within. Years of dietary abuse leave indelible marks such as diabetes, hypertension, weight gain, heart disease, stroke, and an increased risk for prostate cancer proliferation when present.

Medical Testing "Awakens" Our Dietary Plan

While many of us see the “physical display” of dietary recklessness with a quick daily glance in the bathroom mirror, it takes meaningful blood tests to gauge the destruction and/or compromises that have occurred withinthe body. For most men, an evaluation of lipids and prostate specific antigen (PSA) is all that is required to improve your understanding of risk with the two most prominent diseases men face. Acomprehensive lipid panel is recommended to evaluate the sub-types of Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL or bad cholesterol), Triglycerides, HDL (High Density Lipoproteins or good cholesterol) as well as meaningful ratios of one fat component to another. By making these assessments, a lifestyle altering plan can be implemented while meaningful change can be accurately documented. Once the various components of the lipid panel are understood, effective change can be validated by monitoring these levels on a 6-12 month basis. Beyond the LDL/HDL (low density lipoprotein/ high density lipoprotein) ratio and triglyceride/cholesterol ratio, there is the Arachidonic acid/EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) ratio as well as the EPA/DHA (Docosahexanaenoic Acid) ratio, which evaluates systemic Omega 3 fatty acids. These ratios, if unfavorable,have been shown to predictheart disease while a positive result indicates a healthy heartwhen they become normalized.

Rather than waste money on a basic lipid panel, associated witha10-12 hour fast and less than accurate calculations, which may give us a false sense of health and well being, my patients are encouraged to take advantage of the Vertical Auto Profile (VAP);a real time accurate assessment of the lipid metabolism within your bodywithout fasting. This is a comprehensive microanalysis of your systemic fat composition. Based upon the fact that minimally 50% of patients with normal lipid panels (using the basic lipid profile) persist with heart disease, the Vertical Auto Profile test is essential to providing the best methodology for understanding heart disease risk. We cannot allow a genetic history of high cholesterol, for example, to be an excuse or barrier for not exercising or trying to change dietary habits. Fortunately for those who are genetically predisposed to hypercholesterolemia (high cholesterol), there are medications that can control, if not correct, the problem once identified. Unfortunately, in many cases, a sentinel event must take placeprovidinga “wake up call” that mandates change. Former President Bill Clinton needed chest pain and a diagnosis of heart disease to cause him to alter his dietary milieu. In other words, it literally took a life threatening event to knock some health sense into his Presidential head. With heart bypass surgery behind him, chances are he will not be passing through the “arches” of his favorite fast food eatery anytime soon. Like many others, he now bears the scars of a surgical procedure that will forever remind himthatproper diet and exercise is as important as life itself.

Just like the former President and his “awakening”, many patients I see have had the same type of life changing experience with the diagnosis of prostate cancer. Fortunately for my patients, my interests lie not just with the prostate but systemically as well. I realize and understand the responsibility of treating the total patient. I believe in my heart that most disease and cancer is a culmination of a series of interrelated systemic events or battles lost and are not organ-specific. In many cases, prostate cancer is systemic when we had every reason to believe it was organ-confined. For this reason, all patients should be coached and treated as if their disease process is beyond the capsule of the prostate. Specific to my clinical practice, I coach patients that our goal is prostate disease resolution. A healthy prostate means little without a healthy heart. Health of one organ system should never be encouraged at the expense of another. In this regard, we do not treat disease in a vacuum, but must understand that what is good for one disease or organ may cause conflict with another. From my position of understanding, this translates into a controversy and controversy must be avoided.

We have all heard “you are what you eat”! While this sounds trite or simplistic, what you eat determines disease and aging of the organ systems. Type II Diabetes, for example, results primarily from pancreatic burn-out associated with years of abuse. The more simple the sugars and less complex the carbohydrates in your diet the more frequent will be the call to the Pancreas for Insulin production. Overtime, the incessant demand results in organ failure or Adult Onset Diabetes whereby the Pancreas cannot keep up with what you are eating and gives up. Diabetes is commonly associated with visual disturbances, weight gain (obesity), peripheral neuropathy (tingling and numbness of the hands and feet), poor circulation of blood, loss of bladder control, loss of erectile abilities and much more. It is estimated that there are minimally 11 million adult-onset Diabetics in the USA, while millions more are doing their level best to join their ranks through poor eating habits and lack of exercise. More revealing is that a better diet could have prevented the body from breaking down. Unfortunately, the under-educated are most prone to this disease process but we will all succumbto it if we are unwilling to push back from the table, and/or change the menu. There is no excuse for Type II Diabetes in most adults. More importantly, no specific assortment of vitamins and minerals will have an impact without a basic dietary understanding of the Glycemic Index (a measure of how quickly your blood glucose level from carbohydrates will rise) and a commitment by the individual to consume an improved diet. The Glycemic Index (GI) is, therefore related to the complexity of the carbohydrates we eat (refer to the GI chart of carbohydrates for specific details). Specifically, the GI correlates to the relative Insulin requirement needed to offset or balance the sugar entering the blood stream. To state further, food selections with higher GI numbers will raise blood glucose levels more easily and, thereby, trigger the Pancreas to enhance its production of insulin.In contrastlower “numbered” food groups accommodate a slower Insulin release, thereby decreasing the demand on the Pancreas. To summarize this, the more complex the carbohydrates we eat, the less demand on the Pancreas (a good thing), making more complex carbohydrates better for you.

Recognize the Problem

Before we can fix a problem we must first recognize that there is a problem. Let’s look at an example of a diet concept that has figuratively gone south. It is amazing to me the number of people who hang out at eateries that serve chicken wings. This is one commodity that you can do without! Wings are loaded with saturated fat and containvery little protein with a modicum of nutritional value, not to mention the fat that they were fried in is artery clogging. It amazes me how many people pick up a chicken wing and pick it clean without any sense of remorse for the dietary misadventure that just took place. The only meritorious comment is that you are now full, albeit, you are filled with grease and chicken skin mixed in with a disproportionately small morsel or two of legitimate protein. After consumption, you wash it all down with a couple of beers and you are good to go. This goes on day after day for lunch, supper and in-betweensnacks consuming fat, carbohydrates and a microscopic amount of protein. This is nothing to feel good about! You would have been better served with a grilled chicken breast (without the skin, of course) with a piece of lettuce, tomato, a slice or two of onion (a source of natural Quercetin, a bioflavonoid) and a couple of pickles on a Kaiser bun. Do I need to remind you to use a condiment other than mayonnaise?

While I personally and professionally discourage red meat consumption, it is obvious that various steak cuts including: Chuck, Rib eye, New York Strip, Prime Rib, London Broiland Sirloin have significantly more fat than a Filet Mignon (without the Bacon, of course). Men at risk for prostate cancer (approximately 50% of 55-60 year old men) or men who are currently battling the disease are encouraged to avoid red meat as it has been shown to enhance the growth of cancer. A fatty acid called Arachidonic Acid, common to red meat, has been shown to promote aggressive growth of prostate cancer when present. For this reason, men at risk of the disease based on age alone are cautioned about the risks of red meat consumption.

While I probably don’t need to talk about hamburgers, I will as billionshave been sold over some specified time frame by fast food outlets with no let up in sight. If the threat of mad cow disease or E. Coli (Escherichia Coli or the animal’s bowel bacteria) wrapped within your “burger”, at no extra charge, does not discourage you to avoid this dietary selection, think of hormones injected into the meat, saturated fat, fat on the griddle, as well as a meal full of fatty acids that promote cancer growth, precocious puberty as well asheart disease. Did I hear anyone ask for seconds or double on the all beef patty? In this case, when you are hungry while wanting to avoid the bait of eating less nutritiously, try a garden fresh salad with a skinless chicken breast added. Olive oil with red wine vinegar (vinaigrette) will top this selection nicely.

Typically hot dogs, sausage, scrapple, spam and kielbasa are made from scraps of meat representing the poorest quality of meat that is unusable anywhere else. Commonly, chemicals are added to kill bacteria and add color to the final product. If this is your selection for the grill or for eating out, it really does not matter if your selection was blessed by a Rabbi or not as the selection represents anything but what you should eat. If anything, you should receive a blessing from the Rabbi for eating it! Come on people, let’s get our priorities straight; are you living to eat or are you eating to live? Few people, if any, believe that eating hot dogs is living large. The proverbial silver lining in an otherwise dark cloud; what you are eating will keep someone in a job. Now you may take a bow if you can still bend at the waist.

While some of what I have described previously may be part of American culture, what I have described is associated with a premature exit from life associated with heart disease and the American Culture and therefore must only be a rare event, if ever. The risk to living a fruitful quality of life with a measure of longevity will be seriously challenged by a lifetime of hot dogs and hamburgers. Free range chicken and turkey (white meat) are the best selections when given the choice. Unfortunately, we are not always in the most convenient location when hunger strikes. I have included some additional “road recipes” later in this chapter for the traveling public.

Whether it is hormones injected to fatten the meat we eat, poor preparation that contaminates the meat we eat or the pollutants in our streams, oceans and waterways, we need to avoid toxins whenever and wherever possible. The public, for example, may want to consider a boycott of farm raised Salmon unless our Grocer can assure us that the ponds where the Salmon were raised aredevoid of pollutants like PCBs (Poly-chloro-Benzene, a cancer causing chemical), animal waste and heavy metals that are commonly down-stream from landfills or industrial manufacturing plants. To make matters worse, the fish are often fed a diet of fish meal (ground up fish); a common source of additional mercury as well as Omega 6 fatty acids (corn meal) to fatten them up, thereby depleting the anticipated Omega 3 fatty acid benefit. The net effect of this activity results in a less than stellar dinner choice that could be more toxic than nutritional. Unfortunately, if you are not armed with information that gives you the assurances you need, I suggest that you should not eat fish that were farm raised!

The Best Fish to Eat

The best fish to consume are cold water varieties that are high in Omega 3 fatty acids. The reason for this is that the standard American diet (SAD) offers far more Omega 6 fatty acids than Omega 3s. Omega 6 fatty acids are precursors to cellular oxidation and pro-inflammatory processes leading to a variety of diseases including arthritis, asthma, psoriasis and who knows what else? While most Americans have an Omega 6/ Omega 3 ratio in the neighborhood of 20:1, the ideal is 1:1. Fish that are full of the favorable Omega 3 fatty acids include: Wild Salmon, Halibut, Tuna, Mackerel and Sardines. Other fish types like Grouper, Ono, Redfish, Snapper and Trout are examples of fish that serve as wonderful protein sources but do not have the Omega 3 fatty acid content you thought you were getting. This is the reason that I personally supplement with Omega 3 fatty acids as part of my daily routine. I generally recommend a 2:1 ratio of Omega 3s consisting of 1400-1600 mg of EPA daily with approximately 700-800 mg of DHA daily.

The Modified Mediterranean Diet (Wheeler Diet) - Overall

Without question, arguably the most studied and proficient diet to enhance systemic health and longevity of life is the Mediterranean Diet. No other diet is as comprehensive and beneficial to the prevention of disease. Other diets, when studied carefully, are flawed while subsequently counterproductive togoodhealth. All experts are in agreement that the diet you consume should provide the core nutrients to enable a healthy lifestyle. The Modified Mediterranean Diet (Wheeler Diet) is a step up from the traditional core Mediterranean Diet whereby it recognizes the sacrifices that Americans must make if they want to undo the years of dietary abuse. The core ingredients of this dietary plan are protein, carbohydrates, fruits, vegetables, fats and non-toxic water. Specifically, the protein sources allow you to enjoy fish, white meat chicken, white meat turkey, peanut butter, egg whites and beans prepared in many delightful combinations. The vegetables recommended are always fresh (when available) and should highlight the cruciferous or Brassica classification of garden delights including but not limited to: Broccoli, Broccolini, Brussels sprouts, Collard Greens, Mustard Greens, Kale, Cauliflower and Cabbage. This class of vegetables contains cancer fighting plant nutrients called phytonutrients including DIM (di-indoyl methane) as well as fiber and I-C3 (Indole 3- Carbinol). More importantly, the sources of these core nutritional ingredients are integral to the image you will portray while being mindful that a caloric intake in excess of your daily metabolic needs will result in weight gain. Complementing your caloric intake with an adequate exercise program should allow you to maintain your weight while exercising more often and decreasing the calories consumed will result in predicted weight loss. We should all be mindful that a marked decrease in daily caloric intake could result in unnecessary hunger and decreased productivity at home or in the work place. Starvation or food deprivation “fad diets” are discouraged as they are doomed to failure as the ability to comply with such a regimen decreases daily. The inability to comply with any diet ultimately results in a rebound weight gain with no lessons learned except “the diet did not work.”

Let’s begin to understand some of the essentials of the diet I recommend. As the diet develops, you will readily see the difference from what you currently eat and a diet concept that you need to embrace. For more information on what’s for dinner, please take a closer look at the specifics of the “Wheeler Diet” below and the recipes that follow.

In summary, the most nutritionally replete diet for men and women of all ages is a Modified Mediterranean Cuisine.

A Closer Look at the Wheeler “Modified Mediterranean” Diet

The most favorable diet for all men (and women) is a Modified Mediterranean Cuisine. The benefit of this type of diet includes heart health, prostate health and is a mechanism to slow the aging process while reducing weight. Heart disease is prevalent in all ages but most commonly seen in men aged 40-70. Similarly, prostate disease is prevalent in all ages beginning as early as our teen years and extending throughout our adult lives. The Wheeler Diet is ideally intended for all men of all ages who want to prevent heart disease and prostate disease as they grow older. For men who already have heart or prostate disease, it is never too late to start a proper diet. You can expect to lose weight on this diet if you commit to it. Beyond the dietary commentary, I encourage prostate nutritional support with the worldwide patented Peenuts® formula, regular daily exercise, stress reduction and education; so never stop reading and never stop learning!

Nutritional Beverages and Sports Drinks

People are always asking me what my preference is regarding the various fruit based antioxidant beverages available in the market place. After intense review of what is available, I have recently agreed to study the benefit of an antioxidant beverage made up from more than 20 ingredients which I think is at the top of the class. The study will center on men who have failed to be cured from prostate cancer with conventional surgical and radiation remedies. While my belief is that this beverage will increase the time it takes for the PSA to double (doubling time) while extending quality of life, I intend to try to prove it. The basis of this concept is the ability of a synergistic antioxidant blend including Pomegranate, Polyphenols from various sources including tea, bilberry, adaptogens and Acai, among many specifically chosen ingredients, to scavenge free radicals common to cancerous processes. Free radicalsoften potentiate the growth of cancerthrough a process of cellular oxidation. Adaptogens, historically have been shown to decrease cellular oxidative stress, thereby slowing the proliferation of prostate cancer cells as well as slowing the aging process while contributing to higher energy levels, better sleep, improved glucose tolerance, improved focus, lower blood pressure and a decrease in Cortisol levels. While I expect success versus prostate cancer, I believe this same concept would work versus any type of cancer encountered. Men with an interest in adding this product to their daily regimen are encouraged to contact my office distribution staff by calling 1-888-733-6887. This is cutting edge research that is expected to change the lives of a generation of men who face similar challenges on what to do when the PSA continues to rise despite an attempt to cure the disease. While my specific research centers on men, women will also benefit from this multi-potential formula.

Fast Food Eateries

Without naming specific vendors, as they all share some guilt, the unwitting public must become better educated when eating out. While I am sure price is a factor, especially for students and larger families, try to select healthy choices whenever possible. As example, when you choose your favorite cup of morning Java on the way to the office, leave the sticky buns and coffee cake behind. When you eat chicken for lunch or dinner, never eat the “famous bowl”. For those unfamiliar, the now “infamous bowl” consists of mashed potatoes, corn and delicious morsels of battered, crunchy fried chicken pieces smothered in gravy. While it may be tasty to some, this dietary selection is a nutritional “belly bulging, hip absorbing, diabetic inducing”dietary nightmare. Carbs, carbs and more carbs with a morsel or two of chicken is never healthy. When you add a carbonated beverage, the crime scene becomes embellished; in other words, it is a crime to see anybody eat like this. Stick to a salad with a piece of grilled chicken with olive oil and vinegar if possible with a bottle of water. Also, avoid going to any restaurant that serves pasta and endless breadsticks. Management in the restaurant industry should be concerned about the potential liability for making you fat remembering that sugar turns to fat! If this type of meal is your only option, you may as well save the tank of gas and open a bag of sugar, grab a spoon and sit on the couch to watch a movie. Don’t sell yourself short!Social behavior is learned or mimicked and can be corrected. Even the most educated among us needs a lesson in discipline or self control from time to time. If you are going to splurge once-in-awhile, make sure your “once-in-awhile” doesn’t happen more often than once a month to every 6 weeks. Congratulations…you are now an educated consumer and on the road to a healthier you.

General Dietary Considerations

- Avoid Fried Foods whenever possible in favor of broiled or baked
- If Dieting, precede every meal with an 8 ounce glass of water
- Heart Health and Prostate Health is directly related to a Proper Diet (See Modified Mediterranean Diet), Appropriate Nutrition, Adequate Exercise, Stress Reduction, and Education. Always eat food fresh and/or fresh frozen; Canned goods are generally to be avoided due to preservatives and high levels of sodium; An exception would be tomato based products including tomato sauce or tomato paste (the best source of lycopene). If you grill your dinner, do not over cook or burn what is to be consumed as the charred portion is cancer causing.
- Avoid the use of butter or margarine remembering, “If it is solid at room temperature, you shouldn’t use it” (referring to butter or butter-like spreads)
- If you form kidney stones, avoid the restaurant that serves “all you can eat” as protein excess contributes to uric acid formation, a prime ingredient in many stones 15% of your daily calories should come from Fats
