I don’t understand why zucchini and yellow squash are not allowed until C3. They are low in calorie and low on the glycemic index.

Question 2... what defines a cleansing vegetable -- WHY is it considered cleansing?

This question is about The 17 Day Diet

Your post didn't say whether or not you bought the book, but in the chapter about "ethnic" eating, Dr. Mike allows summer squash for the Latino dieters, and zucchini for the Persians in the 1st cysle. Based on that, I have allowed them for myself as well! Hope that helps!
