Phase 3 Allowed foods

I am about to start Phase 3 and am looking for a definitive list of foods that are permitted. I have ordered the UltraBurn, which should arrive today or tomorrow, and I received the general guidelines about what to eat (ie Protein, Fruit, Vegetable, Fat) and when, but I would like a list of what is permitted. I have looked on the web for lists of "low glycemic index" fruits and vegetables and all I can find are places that want to sell me something. I found this site: www..com, but don't know if your professionals would agree with their list. I really don't want to mess this up, like I did the last time, by jumping into the wrong foods too soon. Thank you!

For example: is Pineapple allowed in Phase 3? What about Watermelon? If so, at what quantities? From what I can find on the Simeon's protocol, his philosophy was try it, if the scale changes, then don't do it again...is that about right?

You are correct, thats what he says, trial an error. The only thing that he really mentions is to stay away from carbohydrates especially when you start eating fat. The carbohydrates are the last thing that you can start eating. skimmed milk, eggs and cottage cheese is fine. To “starchy white” carbohydrates, such as sugar, rice, bread, potatoes, pasta, pastries, etc., avoid nuts, legumes, cereal and oatmeal. He recommends good fats obtained from healthy fruits, vegetables and proteins. For the following 3 weeks, all foods allowed except starch and sugar in any form (careful with very sweet fruit). After 3 weeks, very gradually add starch in small quantities, always controlled by morning weighing. There is no list of what to eat during the phase…. While you can find such websites with "lists", consuming some of those foods may cause you to gain weight, so trial and error with regular healthy foods and/or those lists by weighing yourself every morning is the best solution. There is never a distinct program for weight loss and everyones body is different. If you find that your having difficulties, call our office for professional medical help!
