Not a bad list so far, eh? No, this isn’t all of it. But look the vegetable list over. Look for foods that you are already eating and breathe a sigh of relief. I mean, if you already like something, in particular, isn’t that half the battle?

One of your chores after reading will be to find every one of these vegetables at your supermarket. Don’t despair. What you don’t find at one grocery store, you may find at another.

Don’t discount health food stores either. The prices may be slightly higher, but you’re probably getting a better quality product, not to mention the fact that the produce at a health food store was more than likely grown without chemicals.


  • Apples
  • Apricots
  • Blackberries
  • Blueberries
  • Cantaloupe
  • Cherries
  • Cranberries
  • Currants
  • Damson plum
  • Figs
  • Fruit salad (fresh/canned)
  • Grapefruit
  • Grapes
  • Honeydew melon
  • Huckleberries
  • Kiwi
  • Kumquats
  • Lemons
  • Limes
  • Loganberries
  • Mangoes
  • Muskmelons
  • Nectarines
  • Oranges
  • Papaya
  • Peaches
  • Pears
  • Pineapple
  • Pomegranates
  • Prunes
  • Quince
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries
  • Tangerines
  • Watermelon
Feeling a little better now? Yes, your sweet tooth will make it through this diet. Take a really good look at this list. You’re remembering what each fruit tastes like aren’t you?

My experience has shown me that most people stick with just a few of their favorite fruit. I’m asking you to break that habit. Live a little! Broaden your horizon!


  • Abalone
  • Bass (freshwater/sea)
  • Buffalo fish
  • Catfish
  • Clams (cooked)
  • Cod Steaks
  • Crab
  • Crayfish
  • Flounder
  • Frog legs
  • Mussels
  • Oysters (half shell)
  • Shrimp
  • Terrapin
  • Trout
  • Tuna

That’s the list!
Really spend some time with it. Read each food item and visualize it. That’s right. See each item in your mind’s eye. Imagine the taste, the smell. Why do this? Self-Programming. You don’t want this to be just another diet failure, do you?

    Here’s a shorter way of expressing the list: Anything but potatoes. (crying)
