The book does make many nutrition and health claims that are not supported by research. As a Registered Dietitian I do not consider it to be a reliable source of information. Becky SP Registered Dietitian
I am sorry that the website support is not very supportive.
I have done research on this diet and I am beginning to thinking it is a bunch of bologna. I eat chicken and rice together all the time and I have not had a problem losing weight. And I have not the least inclination to ever eat Hemp Seed and I have several health food stores where it is affordable.
It is when I eat mindlessly that I have a problem losing weight.
I emailed and asked for other options for the goat cheese and was told to get Hemp Seed.... Sorry, I have no health food stores around me and I'm not ordering off Amazon for $14 plus shipping and handling. This diet has already put my food budget out of control. Back to the goat cheese totally nauseates me and leaves a horrilbe after taste in my mouth. I was told to stop acting like a third grader and that I need to try the food that millions of people are eating every day and love. And then, after that comment, I received an email from lyn-genet telling me to never contact the site again. The Plan is working and letting me lose weight and I'm not eating goat cheese. lol But I'm starting to wonder, since she says in the book not to deviate from the menus, if it is more about the food combinations than it is sensitivities. I've read on many sites now that people who have gone off the Plan but not eaten any of their sensitivity food, have gained the weight back very quickly. And I'm starting to think that this is happening due to the different combinations of food eaten. Like the Hay diet. She mentions in the book that you can't eat chicken and rice together. Why not? If it's all about food senstivity and I'm not sensitive to either chicken or rice, then why can't I eat them together?
