    Quick comment. The starred food in the book are his recommendation based on what worked for *him*. It doesn’t say those will produce the fastest results for anyone else.

    Is shellfish allowed?

    is ketchup allowed on the diet?

    • Carolyn says:

      My guess is no, because ketchup usually has a good deal of sugar in it. If you could find it without sugar, then I’m not sure ;) The ingredients in it would be allowed, so maybe so? Try it and see!

    So… under Vegitable Broccoli is listed twice, once with a star and once without, so should it be starred?

    Are the following allowed on the four hour body diet?

    - bean sprouts<
    - soy sauce
    - canola or soya oil – small quantities for cooking


    • 4hourdiet says:

      You are fine using a little bit of soy sauce as well as canola oil for cooking!

      You could definitely do worse than eating bean sprouts, but a significant portion of their calories do come from sugar. You are better off with other vegetables.

  9. PJ says:

    Are Navy beans (Northern beans) allowed? I ask because they are fairly common but were not listed. I want to be sure their sugar content is safe.

  10. My biggest obsticle in losing weight are carbs! I love them and they love me!
