I do have the book and have read most of it. I can see where the beans are allowed it just worries me with the carbs attached. I guess I can trust in the people here
I have been having sugar free candy or gum 2 or 3 times a day, ricotta desserts a few times, also I do have the sugar free dark hershey's chocolate (the little bars) that I have had twice so far. That's it for sweet treats. I think all of those should be OK.
Truthfully, I am a hard core carb eater. The cravings now aren't as much physical as mental. The idea of having the flax bread really appeals if that is OK - just to put something on what feels like "bread" makes it easier to it, and more filling. The other issue (as I mentioned in one of my posts) is that I am having serious constipation even with the fiber supplements and stool softeners (sorry TMI). Last week I took to eating a 1/2 cup of All Bran or Kashi Go Lean in the A.M. and that helped but I suspect that isn't OK on Phase 1.
