! I think it's GREAT
that you're taking the time to prepare for success in Phase 1. Jumping right in without getting your pantry cleaned out, buying the foods you need, preparing ways to deal with upcoming obstacles, and, above all, reading the book, is setting yourself up for failure, IMHO. What you're doing is much
more likely to lead to a successful Phase 1 and even more success in Phase 2.
Yes, you've got it about right, but you want to make sure you're getting lots of fiber in the form of veggies and beans/legumes. You also want to ensure that you're getting dairy (fat free or low fat), and the allowable good carbs for Phase 1 (in addition to beans/legumes and dairy, these include tomatoes and bell peppers). Making sure you get the good carbs and fiber will help reduce the symptoms of detoxing (i.e. the "SBD Flu") and also help ensure you stay "regular" during that time.
