Hi, from what Ihave read you can have all the things you like, it is more to do with portion sizes and choosing wholewheat pasta over white, brown rice over white rice, wholegrain bread over white/ordinary brown. Ideal if you like meat, fish, and a nice varied diet including all natural foods veg, spices, fruit, seeds, grains, etc.
Some really nice recipes in the Sonoma Diet book to start with but I think I will definately get the cookbook for more inspiration.
I am hoping to start it on Monday once I have done a shopping list for Tescos this weekend.
Good luck. We can keep up to date with our success!!
