Exclamation About to begin diet, questions over salsa


I am new to this diet and have an unresolved question. Thought it would be easier to ask you all. I have salsa I bought from Target and it has 2 grams of sugar, but it is all completely natural. Which makes me curious. Is this sugar just a natural veggie sugar?

Also, can I have tomatoes during this first phase, let alone the second?

Sorry if this seems redundant and lazy. I probably could read the book, but thought it was way faster this way.

It would be easier to say yes or no to question one if we could take a look at the ingredients, but it's probably safe.

tomatoes are a definite yes!

and yes, it's faster this way. there is a huge wealth of information here

good luck!

Many salsas have added sugar so you need to check the ingredients. Salsa with added sugar is a no in Phase 1. South Beach is going to teach you to be a hardcore label reader

It is important to read the book too. Understanding the reasons we make the food choices we do can be really helpful. This forum is also a great place to get information and questions answered along with the information in the book.
