The Rules of OWL

Just about everyone knows the rules of induction by heart, but do you know the rules of OWL? Well, here they are! You should follow these rules just as stringently as you followed the induction rules. Also, note that those following a "modified OWL" do follow the rules. You are allowed to increase net grams of carbohydrates by no more than five each week, but you are not required to go up the full five. It is a good idea to eat a fat with your new carbs as ou introduce your new foods to help keep your blood sugar from spiking.

Rules of OWL
•Keep protein and fat as the mainstays of your diet.
•Increase your daily carbohydrate intake by no more than 5 grams each week.
•Add new foods in the order listed in the carbohydrate ladder.
•Add one new food group at a time.
•Eat a food group no more than three times per week to start, then eat it daily.
•Stop new foods immediately if they provoke weight gain, the return of physical symptoms lost doing Induction or increased appetite or cravings.
•Continue doing OWL until you have five to 10 pounds left to lose.
