You want to buy Dick Gregory’s Caribbean Diet for Optimum Health meal replacement – but can’t find it? You’re not alone! This wonderful product – with hundreds of positive reviews on Amazon and eVitamins – is unfortunately discontinued. Due to a lack of information from the manufacturer (Wellness in Nature), no one seems to know if Dick Gregory’s Caribbean Diet or his Dick Gregory’s Slim-Safe Bahamian Diet Drink Mix products will be available again. [UPDATE 1/20/2016: It looks like it’s been discontinued.]
But that’s OK – we can deal with that! If you want to follow his nutritional wisdom and eat right, lose weight, and live longer…continue to see some high-rated, proven products that you can use until Caribbean Diet meal replacement goes on the market again (if it ever does). In addition to that, his complete plan of nutrition meant you had to cook right. So first…
Get the Knowledge
Part of Mr. Gregory’s advice is to eat lot of fruit and vegetables, focus on plant-based proteins, some seafood and lean meats on occasion, and use herbs and spices for your seasonings (not salt). He once wrote a book about cooking healthy foods (Dick Gregory’s Natural Diet for Folks Who Eat), but unfortunately it’s out of print – and used copies are hard to find. However, there are some currently available books on healthy Afro-Caribbean cooking that you’ll love!

Since his meal replacement products aren’t being made, you can use one of the following meal replacements instead. They all have differences (depending on what you like, and ingredients). But they all have a few things in common: they have high reviews, they are proven with many people’s testimonies, they all use high-quality ingredients, and they all can be used in the same way as Mr. Gregory’s meal replacement powder. (The idea is to eat healthy, and replace one or more meals with the powder.) Check out the products featured here – and don’t forget to take a look at our Meal Replacement Guide and be fully informed.

One last recommendation is the book Back to Eden – and this recommendation comes from Mr. Gregory himself. Not only did he follow the advice of his mentor, Dr. Alvenia M. Fulton, but he put a lot of the wisdom found in Back to Eden into his now out of print book on nutrition. You can order Back to Eden on Amazon – and hopefully live as long as Mr. Gregory!
