Default Wave 1

Wave One is the most restrictive phase. As with all low-carb diets, sugar and most sources of starch are avoided. Like the South Beach Diet, the Sonoma Diet is low in saturated fats as well. No fruit or alcohol is allowed, or anything sweet. "If you just can't take it any more" you may have small amounts of diet soda or artificial sweeteners, but this is discouraged.

What You Eat:
Lean protein sources (eggs, seafood, remove skin from poultry, lean cuts of beef and pork, soy foods), certain low fat dairy products, one serving beans, low starch vegetables, small amount of nuts (you have to count them), certain fats such as nuts and olive oil, some low-carb condiments. Nothing else, including fruits and alcohol.

How Much To Eat:
To make the diet easier, you should have a bowl which holds 2 cups of liquid, a seven-inch plate (like a dessert plate), and a nine-inch plate (sometimes called a lunch plate). Do measure the plates - a small difference in diameter can make a big difference in the amount of food. Breakfast is either protein and grains on the seven-inch plate (some vegetable is allowed as well) or whole grain cereals and milk in the bowl. Lunch is on the nine-inch plate, which is a little over half vegetables, and the rest protein. Dinner is also on the nine-inch plate, which is half vegetables, one third protein, and 20% grains.

Carb Level:
Although carbs are not specifically counted, the Wave One menus I analyzed had about 40 grams of usable carbohydrate.

Length of Phase:
Ten days

Wave One goals are:
1) To promote fast weight loss by limiting carbs and calories
2) To do away with carb cravings.
3) An introduction to the foods emphasized on the diet.
