    I love the website makeover and the recipe section is awesome! Thank you so much for that. I do wish the recipes were more clearly labeled as to how many proteins, veggies, fruits, etc, are in each serving. Since that’s an extremely vital part of the program, we don’t want to mess up on that and de-rail ourselves, so it seems that should be included in each recipe along with calories (per serving, not just per recipe–along with how big is a serving for that recipe, i.e. “147 calories per 1 cup serving, 1 Protein, 1 Veg).

    Just a suggestion to make the recipes more accurate and easy to understand.

    Shari, thanks for the feedback! I have been labeling the recipes that are appropriate for phase 1, 2, 3, but I can see why you would want to be able to keep track of the proteins, veg, fruit, fats etc. I believe all of the recipes have been broken down per serving however as far as calories goes. I will look them over again and check, but I have actually broken down the nutrient analysis of each recipe pretty detailed. We are working on adding an element for the nutrition portion that will tell you the amount of protein, vegetable, fruit, healthy fats and liquids as well, so this should help clear up this confusion in the future. For now though try to base the recipe off of what phase you are in so if a recipe is for Phase 1 that means it will appropriately use phase 1 ingredients and will be fine to eat in that phase. Tracking calories will be of primary concern and most recipes will be including at least one protein, one vegetable or fruit and a little healthy fats. I will review the recipes again and verify that the serving sizes are accurate though and keep you updated on when we have the other elements added! Thanks so much for bringing this to our attention. You are welcome to message me directly too if there is a question on a particular recipe 🙂

    I too love the way the recipe resource has grown. It provides us with so much variety to keep us from getting bored. Because it is getting so great, may want to consider possible organizing into folders of sort. Maybe beef(red meat), chicken(white meat), seafood, salads, condiments, drinks, etc. just an idea. Makes searching for specific food group easier. But truly Thank you for such a wonderful resource to carry us to success.

    It would be nice if in the recipe search you could do a search for phase 1 and also dinner. Right now I can just search for one at a time. Just a suggestion, but I love all the recipes on the site. Wish I could also post them to my Facebook friends who are not on this diet.

    Lynette I believe that you can copy the link and share with anyone…I don’t think they are restricted 🙂

    I have a question for clarification.
    In the book it suggests not to use Coconut oil at all. The book encourages the use of Olive Oil for cooking etc. Etc.. This goes against everything l know about oils. Could you please explain this rational to me.
    Thank you

    Hi Maurice,

    Coconut oil can be cooked with, it just has a low smoke point. Much lower than Olive Oil. Just don’t cook with it at high heat! Hope this clears up your confusion… you can still cook with it and eat it!

    Thank you for the reply I just wanted to be sure it was not for any other reason than smoke point. There are so many pros and cons out there about coconut oil. Once one sorts out the facts from the nonsense one can make a decision. I personally use Avocado oil for cooking as I believe it is the highest smoke point oil if cooking at temperature. When it comes to Olive Oils it all boils down to the type of olive oil used and smoke point as they are all over the map. It is also important to assure you are actually buying Olive Oil and not one that claims to be. There are so many fake Olive Oils on the market it is a bit disturbing. I never buy an Olive Oil that is not is a very dark bottle or not organic, I think this helps a lot in getting what one hopes is real Olive Oil. The other oil I use when I use Oils is Grape Oil. I never use Canola Oil as I feel it is a very toxic product. The manner in which Canola Oil is processed is not what I would refer to as consumer friendly.
