Hi. I just want to make sure I'm getting this straight. When on the elimination diet, it is not necessary for me to have the fish, correct? And, (this won't happen but I just want full understanding), if I wanted to ONLY eat pears the entire time I could do that? One more thing, there are insectisides on fruit, right, so I need to get the fruits and veggies from an organic store? Thanks to whoever answers this!

Hi Me,

You shouldn't just eat pears for 6 days!

You should create meals that consist primarily of the vegetables and no more than 1/2 of a piece of fruit. You should also experiment with adding fish at various meals. The results will help you figure out your metabolic type.

Sorry, the name should have been Mel, not "me." I wasn't trying to be a smart a*$! :) The line in the archives that confused me was "Friday morning’s breakfast and all subsequent meals for the next six days should consist exclusively of the ‘safe’ foods
(cod, trout, mackerel, pears, parsnips, turnips, rutabaga, sweet potatoes, yams, celery, zucchini, carrots and peaches).
You may eat them in any combination and in any amount as often as you want throughout the first six days." That last part led me to believe that I could eat all of the same food if I wanted to. Thanks for the clarification. I love veggies so that won't be a problem.

I really can't stand fish. Could I do without? I never eat it anyway.

Thanks again.

Mel,

If you are an Agriculturist you won't miss the fish. If you are not you won't be able to make it through the week.

So many folks seem to have this aversion to fish. If you steam the cod or the trout it really is good. Try it.

Good luck Mel, I am one week plus into the diet. What I have learned is that having fresh fish is important. I got some bad cod and it really ruined my day, it was really awful because of the quality. SO listen to Bob and his tips he is very wise.
All the best,
Denise

PS: Another thing I would suggest. You cannot do TOO much planning. I got caught without enough food on hand and some of it was hard to find. Do your shopping early and be well stocked. From someone who got caught short supplied so to speak.

Thanks, Denise! I'm praying about the fish! Ha ha! *NMI*
