Excellent eating program - two weeks and I can finally eat three meals a day without feeling deprived and starved between meals - I work out and on low fat - low carb eating regimns always felt hungry mid morning and it seemed as though I was never full. I did not start this with the intention of loosing weight I just wanted a sensible eating plan that I could follow. I am a busy executive in my 50's - pre-menopausal and the last two weeks I have felt energized and content after each meal Thank you.

Hi Liv,

Coconut milk falls into the Very Healthy Fats category.
written by Liv, August 15, 2010
How much coconut milk/ cream constitutes a serving and does it fall into the fat category?

I have struggled with weight since I was a teenager. About 8 years ago I lost 100 pounds and plateaued and then despite eating (what I thought was) healthy and exercising regularly, I've gained back 40 of it and I'm severely overweight (not like the 20 or 30 pounds that are some of the success stories that are classified as overweight). It is causing a deep depression and at times a desire to just be done with this life. I can't lose weight no matter what I try. This book has given me a little hope and I started stage 1 today. I hope it works and it's not some gimmick that causes me to gain more weight because I simply can't afford to.

I haven't read the book yet, and just stumbled on this site from somewhere else. I do know, however, that coconut milk is lactose free and I've been using that for my son for a couple of months now since he has horrible problems with lactose. Hope that helps.

I'm excited to learn more about this eating style!! I have felt for some time now that the foods we've been given, and in their most natural form (fat and all) are the healthiest for us!

Could someone please share the recipe for the coconut smoothie that has been talked about here and out on the web. Supposedly, it was in a FIRST for women magazine article and I did not see it. Thanks.

I have purchased the book and I love it so far. I have lost 6 pounds in one week, and I am full of energy and my snack cravings are decreasing. However, I am allergic to eggs and I would love some alternative breakfast recipes (besides the smoothie), for people on Stage 1 besides the smoothie. The smoothie is delicious, I have tried the one in the book and the one from First mag, however I would love some other options. Can I eat a nitrate free chicken sausage or Nitrate free Turkey bacon like Applegate farms instead? And what would I pair it with? Thank you!

First, I just want to say good luck to Debbie Klemm above who is going to take on the challenge of changing her lifestyle once and for all, losing weight and keeping it off! Debbie, I am here to support you, please keep in touch on this site and let us know your progress! If there is anything we can do to support you, don't be afraid to post it here, on Facebook or on Twitter!

Now, to answer Corinne's question from a couple days ago. I asked Dr. Aziz this question about organic foods. Here was his reply: "You don't have to eat foods from organic sources all the time on the Perfect 10 Diet. Certain fruits such as oranges and bananas have thick skin and have very little exposure to pesticides. Attempt, though, to buy eggs and dairy and fruits with thin skin from organic sources if you are able to." Good luck Corinne with food options. Maybe you could also look into something like Fresh Direct who might be able to deliver you organic options. Just a thought. Good luck!!!

will this diet work if I don't use organic foods?????.....the small town where I live has very few options for organic!

waiting for the book to arrive. I am 43 years old and have had a weight problem since childhood. I am at my all time high and my cholestrol and trigliceriges are off the charts. I am on two medications and am surprised I havn't had a heart attack. I have tried every diet and have lost weight but only to put it back on and gained even more!! I am excited to try this diet, if that's what you want to call it. I need a life style change!!

Hi Debbie and Elizabeth:
My name is Lyron and I am the head cheerleader and question-wrangler for the Perfect 10 community going forward. I will be answering questions like the ones you posted here and elsewhere across the Perfect 10 Diet community. Briefly, Elizabeth is totally right that Dr. Aziz is recommending the use of full-fat coconut milk. Also, he recommends that you eat raw, unsalted nuts (not roasted). As for quantity, you can replace your croutons in your salad with nuts, use almond butter instead of jam or jelly, or just have a handful as a snack. Remember that you can eat nuts regularly to help prevent heart disease. As always, the Perfect 10 diet is about moderation so don't go overboard! Enjoy and I hope you are on your way to a Perfect New Year!

I am getting ready to start the diet and have finished reading the book. I was looking for some soup recipes. I need some good ways to use beans as I don't usually cook with them. Bean soup would be great.

I too heard about the diet in First Women magazine and have the same question as Debbie. I made the coconut banana smoothie this morning using full fat coconut milk because that is what I had on hand. I'm assuming that is what he is advocating since he warns against fat free and low fat foods. Also, this berry smoothie recipe is made with whole yogurt.

I am excited to get your book! I read your article in FIRST WOMENS magazine. Is the coconut shake described made with the full fat coconut milk? Are there guidelines for nut consumption? Loooking forward to sharing with my chiropractic patients>
written by Debbie Baker DC, November 28, 2009
I read your article in First women's magazine. Are the recipe selections for one serving size and is the coconut milk the full fat version? Are there recommendations for the amount of nuts etc? Thank you ! Can't wait to read the book and pass the info on to my chiropractic patients.
