Default chayote squash..phase I????

Does anyone know if chayote squash/mirlitons are allowed in phase I? My sheet says squash is not allowed, but zucchini(a form of squash) is. It seems like chayote are similar to zucchini.

Easiest way to check is by comparing the carbs/fibre/sugars and calories of the two (zucchini & chayote) in www.nutritiondata.self.com
Simple answer is just follow the protocol sheet, but that is up to you. For instance, I used nopales while on P1 and they aren't on the list, but it was my choice as I still had some to get rid of just after I started. Just so you know, , I'm not suggesting that you go off plan, but you will be armed with more info to make your decision for other phases if you choose.

Do you have the current P1 sheet? It is listed as allowed.
