|the diet talks about how refined carbs and sugars are so bad for us. The first two weeks of the diet you eat no grains or fruit or anything with sugar. You eat plenty of vegetables, meat (unless you are veg), nuts, eggs, cheese (unless you are vegan) tofu, beans, etc. (we are not veg but I picked up a Vegetarian mag at the store a few weeks ago and it had an article on how to do this diet if you are veg - that's actually what sparked me to look into it ). Then after two weeks he claims your cravings for sugar and refined carbs should be gone. Then you slowly add back fruit, whole grain products (brown rice, whole grain bread, etc). But he is of the opinion you shouldn't eat bread/pasta, whatever at every meal, every day, even if it's whole grain.|

Foods like cheese and nuts are carbs.

I normally do a great job of buying them, then tossing them from the fridge when they've gone bad.
