Howdy and welcome!!
sorry, no milk. I miss it sometimes terribly. And also no sugar. I've heard of Truvia as an alternative to Splenda, but I'm not sure what it is exactly. The ONLY requirements are that you take Flaxseed oil (I get mine at Wal-Mart), a multi-vitamin (again from Wal-Mart), and purchase the HNS's. I buy enough to keep them happy (usually once a month) and I've bought off of Dietdirect.com when they have a great sale and it helps the cost of the program greatly.
Of course exercise is going to help. They don't want you doing more than 4 hours a week because from what I understand if you do more than that you'll be taking away more calories that allotted and would through your body into starvation mode. Someone else on here might have a more thorough explanation but that's a very simple. I try to do 30-45 min/day 5 days a week. They want you to do a minium of 30 min/3 days a week. So you're off to a rockin start!
Any other questions, ask away and I'd be more than willing to answer!
