Will be uploading more files and testimonials over the next few days for my program that has helped thousands lose weight and heal. It's the very plan I developed to help me lose 100 pounds and heal...I share it freely with all.
It has been approved, recommended and even used by many physicians.
We have a secret FaceBook group where I coach and help you (for free). If you are interested, send me an email. We allow new members on a very limited basis as we want to keep the group relatively small (we try to keep it under 1,000 ladies at a time)
The Official List
These are the ONLY approved foods for this challenge - if it's not on the list DON'T eat it or drink it!
Water. This is key for many reasons. Take your current body weight and divide it in two. Drink that many ounces in water each day. For example: If you weigh 150 pounds that would be 75 ounces of water. If you weigh over 200 pounds, cap it at 100 ounces.
Club Soda & Flavored Seltzer Water. Make sure there are no added sugar(s).
Broth. Make sure there are NO sugars in it.
Coffee. Can we say, Amen?! Lol
Tea. Make sure there are no added sugar(s)
Cream. It can be heavy or light, but NOT half and half. Don't drink it like a beverage. You can add it to your coffee or tea.
Almond Milk. Unsweetened or Vanilla Unsweetened - perfect in coffee 8 oz < 1 g
Coconut Milk. Full fat only
Note: STEVIA is the ONLY recommended sweetener. We don't do "artificial" here.
This is where you should get most of your carbs. I believe in a "plant slant". The limit is 20 carbs per day during the 21 Day Challenge.

Enjoy the eggs, they are a staple! Deviled, fried, hard-boiled, soft-boiled, omelets, poached, scrambled.
Feel free to get creative with your eggs! Mushrooms, cheese, greens, meat...go for it!
Meat and Seafood
Bacon - Make sure it is not cured with sugar. Check carb count on package
Ham - Make sure it is not cured with sugar. Check carb count on package
Cold cuts - I avoid the deli counter because of added nitrates, sugars, etc. I buy Hormel's Natural Choice with no preservatives, no nitrates or nitrites, no MSG. Avoid cold cuts and other meats with added nitrates, if possible.
Fats, Oils & Sweeteners
This list contains NO carbs...BUT...don't overdo it...it still contains calories. A serving size is approximately 1 tablespoon.
Butter. I only buy organic for many reasons, but you can do regular butter.
Coconut Oil. I prefer organic...many reasons, once again. You decide.
Olive Oil. Cold pressed only.
Mayonnaise. Read the label. Make sure there is no added sugar.
SWEETENERS: The ONLY sweetener allowed is STEVIA. Use the drops, SweetLeaf is the one most of us use, they make flavored drops as well (Vanilla, Chocolate, etc.) The packets have other artificial sweeteners added.
Condiments, Herbs, Misc & Spices
Hot Sauce (read the labels to be sure)
Mustard (no honey or sweetened types)
Soy Sauce or Bragg's Aminos
Vinegars (but not Balsamic, keep under 2g of carbs)
Most spices in your spice rack but read the labels!
