    Major (for food additive allergy)

  • Burden

Dosage: Daily
Advice & Tips: Eat all organic, unprocessed food with no chemicals or sugars. Eliminate all forms of sugar (substitute: stevia), and check all food labels for sugar content. Eat natural fats (whole milk, butter, nuts, ghee, avocados, coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil). Avoid American-grown wheat (even if organic), limit grains in general. I do all my own cooking, but everything I eat is delicious and satisfying. I do not feel deprived. I went into COMPLETE REMISSION of inflammatory arthritis, and got off ALL medication for arthritis and pain. I have NO PAIN, NO INFLAMMATION, after suffering with osteoarthritis and psoriatic arthritis for over 25 years. The improvements happened within just a few months of faithfully changing my diet, and have continued for more than 5 years.
Cost: < $25 monthly

Advice & Tips: I think WW's zero-point assignment to some foods is bogus. My weight loss plateaued in two weeks after losing 4 pounds right off. I am now using www.LoseIt.com with much more success and no cost.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
