Hi! Haven't read book - it's on order. But in the mean time am reading up on it as much as possible. It appears there are a number of items that will be part of menus, the eating plan, etc. like Glucomannan Powder, stevia, Chana Dal Beans, certain greens for the smoothies, etc.
I'd like to make a shopping list so I'm stocked up to follow this without interruption due to missing an ingredient or anticipated food item that is routine for this plan.
IS there a shopping list of sorts? OR has someone made one up that is willing to share?
These are some of the things I didn't have that I bought and use the most:
Nunaturals stevia (make sure its pure) get it at Vitacost.com Glucomannan powder whey protein (swanson premium brand) flax or flax meal defattened peanut flour (I put a TBS in my Fat Stripping Frappe) almond flour egg whites almond milk low fat or fat free cottage cheese Greek Yogurt laughing cow cheese wedges (although Now I make Serene's Transformer Cheese Sauce more than use this its cheaper to make and you can use it in allot of the same things, for that you need the sharpest cheese you can find)
Some other things you might have already but might use more of are
Cabbage (it makes a nice noodle replacement cut very thin) Cauliflower (I like to buy frozen use it for creamy soup base, mashed potato and rice substitute for s meals) Eggs (you use allot of eggs to make some of the breads and muffins) Low fat chicken broth lettuce or greens (I like to buy the Organic baby spring mix at Sams Club for making Earth Milk) Mozzarella cheese and cheddar cheese (for pizza crust recipe, they have one that uses cauliflower and mozzarella but I like the one with mozz and cheddar best, its sooo good you might need more of this on hand for that I buy pre-shredded bags)
this is just a rough list so I hope it helps, everyone is different so you might find other recipes that use different thing than what I liked best. plus I could have things on hand you don't so I wouldn't think to tell you to get because they were already part of my list. Happy weight losing!!

Jaidra, that was very helpful, thank you. Obviously without the actual book yet, I'm just setting up the kitchen. But definitely knew I was missing items that will need to become part of my typical stock at home. Deeply appreciate it. Eventually I'm sure to create a shopping list of must haves but I didn't want to derail before I got going!! TY again!
steffanie3: Hi Bryony As your body adjust to coconut oil, mct oil, or xylitol loose stools can happen. If you have added those or more of those recently you might need to cut back a little and work up Congrats on the 17 pounds, that is great

grammalynda: if there isn't a reply button on a thread (too old maybe?) should I start a new thread for that subject?

steffanie3: Hmm, on the upper right as long as you are logged in there should be a reply button, but you sure can start a new thread if you want

grammalynda: I figured it out-when you do a search it takes you to the conversation-there is not a reply button-but the name of the thread is listed above the date and if you click that it takes you to the thread and the reply button. thanks stefanie3 and rebekahrl
