Unlike a crash diet (or vlcd diet, one under 1000 calories) there are no hard limits, even on the shakes and entrees. The 3 shakes, 2 entrees and 5 freggie servings are minimum guidelines, not maximum. The diet can be a crash diet if you choose the lowest calorie and minimal options for shakes, entrees and freggies (only totaling about 600- 700 calories).

Eating when you're hungry is stressed, even if that means extra shakes and entrees (but freggies are top priority). Even so, potatoes, beans and even avocado count as veggies (as long as they're prepared without added fat and as long as your weight loss isn't suffering for it.).
