I’ve compiled a food list for the Slow-Carb Diet that we can eat. I took it from several sources including the Four Hour Body book and a few websites detailing the diet. Now that I have a complete list I feel more confident that I can continue this diet. Depending on what the scale says this weekend I may continue it. We’ll see.
Here is the list. As you can see, there are actually a lot of good things on it. I am really happy to see that dairy is okay. I will go back to adding cottage cheese to my diet!
