You can't totally eliminate food groups.... have you heard of Rickets Scurvy and Beriberi? Those are diseases of certain vitamin defficiencies primarily found in fruit....
2ndly I call it food combining but it's modified. You quote the SBP and I'm quoting my own diet that's always worked when I could afford to be on it. I do use *some* carbs with protein... the carbs are in the vegetable....
There's a new book out about eating like the French. Anyway I'm not suggesting eliminate food groups... Some you need less than others but still need and the way to avoid it's negative impact is to eat properly combined (imho).
On the food combining, you have to limit grains until you start noticing your weight coming off, or your skin clears up some. Right now I don't eat oatmeal every day but if I want to eat it once in a week I"m not going to freak out. And if I eat it I'll have whole rolled oats, organic, not precooked/chewed.
I agree with the person who said that there's something wrong if you have to eliminate foods.. I agree. One of the factors, i'm sure, are liver & gall stones. Check out http://curezone.com
and look for Liver Flush.
PS If you are SUPER DUPER Sensitive to sugar, I would have a dose of plain / unsweetened psyllium husk (ie not metamucil, i use Konysyl) with unsweetened cranberry juice -1/4 cup of the juice (knudsen brand 'just cranberry' - has no sugar at all) before the apple. Follow by cup of water andwait 15 minutesand eat apple. DO NOT eat the apple without skin.... that stabilizes blood sugar too.
I personally can't handle really high protein shakes bcse after repetitive use, I get increased muscle cramping/spasms (ie charlie horses) all over my body and more muscle twitching (despite drinking tons of water daily). Even though I've been to the doctor for it over and over and still have no answers, you know how the medical community is, if you're not frothing and twitching in front of them, it didn't happen. And if they do the standard 2 or 3 tests, and don't find anything from their minimal repitoire, they've done it all & they'll attribute their lack of education & ability to do research (this is a science, isn't it) by saying you have anxiety or sit around eating bonbons & self indulging yourself. The other day I tried to show the doctor a rash on my arms... he loooked at it from across the room & dismissed it. WOW good eye doc! What I want to know is... do other countries have the same rate of PCOS that we do??
