When I did pre-conditioning before... they did not give us a menu. Just told us to cut out caffiene, sweets, and excess fats.
This time around I only did preconditioning for one day b/c I havent had caffiene in quite a while.
I know that salt and soy sauce are out of the picture... you cant have those later on when you go into the other menus. I use "No Salt", it doesnt have sodium but has the salt taste. Ketchup and mayo are out. However, I use "Free Mayo" with half a spenda packet when I make my Tuna salad. It has some sodium but I am losing really well so I am not worried about it. If you go to amazon.com you can order the Metabolic Research Center cookbook. It has condiment substitute recipes and a bunch of other things.
On the Veggies... you cannot have corn (i love corn) or carrots while on the other menus. Cant have tomato until the green menu.
Portion wise, I wouldnt worry about it on preconditiong... it is specific on the other menus.
I havent been really hungry yet... if I do start to feel hungry I drink an HNS, some water, or Crystal Lights Hunger Control. I start the green menu on Friday (yay! Tomato! lol).
Hope that helps some.
