That is a great question...I started today and some of the receipts look great! Also, what sorts of beans are you allowed to eat? All I can find is that you can't have baked beans, does that mean that everything else is ok to eat? (Re-fried?)Question

I have been eating all kinds of canned beans including refried ( fat Free)- they are basically just smashed pinto & pink beans with spices mixed in them. I also have found No Sugar Added,Fat Free baked beans from B&M sweetened with Splenda( Homestyle & Spicy). My weight loss has been consistant so I guess I'm alright- It's nice to have a change of pace sometimes.

I started using some of the recipes right away. All beans, chickpeas, lentils are ok. Also all rice is ok except white. I buy all my stuff from a farmers type market where they have bins full of all kinds of combos. Also when the cycle lists having something like a combo of rice ,beans and veggies I combine the three and make a slow cooked soup using beef broth. Tonight I made a combo soup with lentils, country rice, fresh mushrooms, onions, zucchini and fresh carrots. It turned out great! Very Happy

Drink lots of water. If you can, try drinking the Benefiber packets in your bottled water. It keeps you feeling full which helps during the detox phase and it helps with bloat, belly fat, and energy.
