    • Maissa, in the book the doc tells us to limit to 1/2 to 1 ounce of dark chocolate a day if you really need it. Try to stick with no sugar added. Check the ingredients for the chocolate you’re referring to see to see if the berries add a lot of extra sugar (sometimes it’s just flavor and sugar and no fruit).

  1. Hi Torey…saw my doctor today and he is impressed with most of the 17 day diet. However, he wants me to really cut the carbs wayyyyyyyy down and focus on the ”good fats”. Avocado, olives, olive oil, etc. What is the name of your low carb cookbook and where can I get it? Any info greatly appreciated.

  2. Torey, is there a way to make French onion soup for cycle 1, not using meat just using onion and broth maybe with a smidgen of cheese? Also can we have sugar free hard candy? Thanks,Karen

    • Of course! Most recipes are customizable to be cycle 1 compliant. You could easily use chicken instead of beef if you want to keep protein in this dish. Keep the cheese the same. It’s approved all cycles in moderation under the condiment section!
