I have the Koufman Diet book too but my Dr. said to stay away from some of the things she suggested so I am going to have to ask him next time I see him for further clarfication. Be careful of carbs like breads and pastas, sugars like corn syrup and dairy. My diet consists of chicken, turkey, lean meat, vegetables such as carrots, edamame (soy bean), broccoli, string beans, peas, lettuce, other green vegetables etc apples, melons, almonds, honey, chamamille tea, potatoes seem to be ok, oats, sometimes other fruits like mangos, bananas (not when they are green). The other night I made chicken coated in raw honey with crushed almonds and I baked it. Pretty good. Be care***l with food that has preservatives....those are acidic. Some grocery stores have their own line of organic food and it is not as expensive as Whole Foods (which is ridiculously expensive).
