I don't eat meat or chicken, Could I substitute that with shrimp or fish? Thank you. I have become a vegetarian for my love of animals. And I'm very careful of the dairy I buy to make sure cows are not abused. I understand greek yogurt is to be eaten. So, please give me some suggestions, as I would really like to go on this diet. Thank you!

I don't like fish at ALL! Can I eat chicken and turkey in place of fish?

I lost 7 lbs in the first week! However I've hit a plateau and have only lost 1/2 lb in the second week.

Lea - you'll need to please confirm with your doctor the restrictions of your medications.

Pamela - One of the things we advise on DIR regularly is planning. With a little bit of planning, healthy eating, exercise, all of it, no matter which diet you're following, is all manageable. You don't have to be a celebrity doctor. Grill chicken breast at the beginning of the week and then grab-and-go for lunch. Same w/ the rice, you can make a large batch (honestly, something I do myself) at the beginning of the week and have it to heat and serve all week. Shop sales, off-brands, buy local and in season produce, frozen fruits/veggies, and in bulk, and you'll see that healthy foods can fit in your budget. Again, it all goes back to planning. Best of luck.
