Wise and lovely Ruth has done a great job of putting you on the right track. There is endless info in the stickies on these pages. You have the right idea, but realize that the book was written over two years ago, and Dr. A is committed to modifying the diet to reflect new knowledge in food studies and health. For instance, because of the new information on glycemic load, we are now allowed a medium banana in Phase 2, something that is listed as a "food to avoid" in the book. Likewise, we are also allowed carrots in Phase 2, which is not listed in the main book, but I believe is listed in the Cookbook. I highly suggest getting the cookbook...you can get it very cheaply at Wal*Mart and it has many wonderful recipes. In addition, both the cookbook and the GFGCG have updated lists of foods to enjoy and avoid. Also, sign up for the free "Daily Dish" e-mail at the SBD website. That tells you new information about the diet (the bananas were discussed in a Daily Dish last week) and good info on staying healthy.
Things to count are:
75 cals (at most) of non-nutritive sweets (artificial sweeteners, SF gum, SF popsicles and Jell-o, etc.)
No more than 2 1/2 cups of dairy a day (i.e. five servings)
One serving of nuts each day (2 Tbsp of natural PB, OR 15 almonds, OR 15 cashews, OR 15 walnuts, OR 20 peanuts, OR 30 pistachios)
That's basically it. The diet really is easy to work. Good for you on the vitamins. That should help, as should transitioning to Phase 2! Are you drinking enough water? You need to drink at least 63 oz a day, I believe, and you shouldn't count more than 2 glasses of things like crystal light to that total. Plain old water is so good for you, keeps everything hydrated, and helps you reduce water weight. You might be dehydrated, too, and if so, drinking water will help you become more energetic! Also, are you having issues with constipation? If so, take Senakot (my OB/GYN says it's very gentle and non-addictive) and see if that helps. Being constipated makes me pretty lethargic. After four weeks on Phase 1, I can imagine that you'd have some problems with that. Also, take your metamucil. It does help, especially if you are drinking a lot of water.
HTH! I think you'll find this diet doing wonderful things for you!
