Soy Milk --- Yay or Nay?
There's a long discussion thread about Soy on the Forum, and I believe the answer is NO.

FF = natural. If Mother Nature didn't manufacture it, don't use it. Read the labels. Not worth it in the long run...see my post on "cravings". {{{hugs}}}

Wonder why those cravings happen? FF is an amazing plan, and what's made the most difference for me is understanding what happens when a craving hits. I've been reading your posts and it seems that many of you have the same kinds of reactions/yo yo's.

It's the food or drink that TRIGGERS the craving, not the actual craved food. EG, when I eat bananas, I start to crave salty and crunchy food. Avoid bananas, no cravings. Taking chromium triggers sugar cravings for me. So I avoid chromium.

Ann Louise Gittleman, founder of FF explains bloating/gain/ etc/ this way. Direct quote from the Fat Flush Forum: "Please note that I am using the word "allergy" to also convey a food "sensitivity." Simply put, a toxic response to any given food or food substance, like grains, milk, or sugar, can cause irritation and inflammation. The body responds by retaining water to dilute the effect of this toxic reaction. As long as you keep eating foods or food substances causing these reactions, you will continue to retain excess water weight.

Internal inflammation may dramatically affect your weight in another way because this type of response can inhibit your body's ability to burn stored fat. A food allergy or food sensitivity can act similarly to morphine-like opiod drugs. Eating the wrong food can produce a temporary "high" and then when that "high" fades, you begin to crave the same foods to get that "high" feeling again. These types of opioid chemicals ultimately increase appetite and decrease metabolism.

So, certain foods with certain sensitive individuals can make you "fat" or make you retain "false fat" regardless of the caloric content."

Hope this helps!

From the Fat Flush Forum (loads of recipes!):


3 tomatoes
3-5 tomatillos
1-2 jalapeno
1/2 green bell pepper
2 cloves garlic
6 scallions (whites only)
Handful cilantro (more if you like)
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
Juice from one lime (more if you like)

Grill the tomatoes and tomatillos on bbq until skin is charred and soft on inside, about 10 minutes. Remove; let sit while you get the other things prepared. Put green bell pepper, jalapenos, garlic, scallions, cilantro (all ingredients slightly chopped) into food processor.

Add apple cider vinegar and lime juice and blend in food processor on pulse until well mixed. Add the tomatoes and tomatillos blend again until well mixed.
