  • 1 Grissini Breadstick or Melba Toast
  • Selected fruit (see below)

You are encouraged to drink lots of water (minimum of 2 liters per day) and you can drink all the coffee and tea you want. (If you want something for breakfast, then use one of your fruits or be creative with what is allowed) And now for the calorie count of allowable foods.

Keep in mind that all the above calorie counts on meats and vegetables do not include any sauces or salad dressing. One trick I learned in phase two of my diet is that I could use Louisiana Hot Sauce, as it has zero calories. That has helped immensely and because it is spicy, you feel fuller. I also use Lemon and Apple cider vinegar with black pepper on salads which is quite tasty.
