Hi, Christine. It depends on how much of the ingredients, of course. If you go easy on the dressing, each cup of salad would equal 1 vegetable + 1 fat exchange.

I saw in a response to a question you mentioned that things like horseradish & vinegar are on the free list. I can’t seem to find them on the free list that I found under FAQs. Can you point me in the right direction to the entire free list?

Hi, Gail. If it is too much food, you can definitely cut back on some items. Since you seem to be dawn to low-carbohydrate options, you can cut back on the starchy carbohydrates in your menu. Taking your Monday menu as an example, you can leave out the breakfast crackers and morning snack English muffin and spread, as well as the afternoon snack pretzels and evening snack graham crackers. You can then increase the amount of protein at lunch, if you wish – for example, 6 ounces of fish or chicken.
We don’t generally encourage processed products such as Atkins shakes, which also contain artifical ingredients, as these can work against your efforts here. If you wish to drink your snacks, we have a collection of “shake” and “smoothie” recipes that could be much better for you.

Sorry to be such a pain with all my questions. But I have a bad sweet tooth especially at night. I seen the recipes on desserts. Am I aloud to eat them in my plan ?

Hi, Alphatia. Those flours aren’t essential here, just mainly used for a gluten-free diet. If you don’t need that, you can use regular whole wheat flour.

Hi, Loose19, and welcome. Yes, we encourage fresh, relatively unprocessed, whole and natural foods. To get started, you can either use the “8-Week Plan” (link on the home page) to become acquainted with the program and build a menu, or you can click on “My Menu” (also on the home page) to get an instant menu, then make specific selections through the “My Food Choices” link in the toolbar above the menu. That link will bring you to food lists from which you can choose, while being guided by a color-coding system in which the healthiest foods are in the lighter blue shades. If you would like more help with making food choices, take advantage of our articles in the “Tips and Tricks” section of the site (link at the top of each site page), and get ideas for healthy food preparation in our searchable “Recipes” collection.

Please Help! I am the only person in my household doing this and just started working on my meal plan but I can’t figure out how to convert the recipes to smaller servings. My Mom is doing the Keto diet and we are going to compare.
