  • Reduce dairy intake -- Say farewell to milk, cheese, yogurt, ice cream, sour cream and butter. Replace milk with rice milk. Load up on water or unsweetened herbal tea.
  • Reduce sugar intake -- It's time to eliminate white, brown and powdered sugar, in addition to those artificial sweeteners. Enjoy pure maple syrup, honey, molasses and Sucanat.
  • Stock up on whole foods -- Fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes should comprise a big part of your diet. Whole foods only have on ingredient on the package.
