    Its just with Ignite.

    My grocery bill during ignite was double what it usually is. I don't have the cravings I did before, but I haven't lost any notable amount of weight nor do I feel particularly energized. Further, while it's probably related to other things going on in my life I've developed a bit of insomnia which has never really been an issue for me before. This is not sustainable for me, I'm going to have to do something else. What a huge disappointment.

    198west answered the Question: Bread? Tortillas? allowed?

    You can if they don't contain gluten. If its got wheat its most likely got gluten in it. Corn tortillas are usually ok.

    It appears to also be derived from brown rice. Does it taste like you are eating cereal? Does it all settle to the bottom of a glass if you don't keep it stirred? These were particularly unpleasant properties of the two brown rice powders I've tried.

    I bought it to start Ignite with and its almost gone. It's not as creamy delicious as some of the whey powders I used to use, but its definitely palatable. The problem is that its just way too expensive.

    I tried two different brown-rice powders from Amazon that taste... well I assume they taste like they should, which to me is unpalatable. Adding fruit doesn't help, it almost makes it worse. Maybe if I mix it with oatmeal...

    Does anyone know of something that is closer in taste/tastiness to "fuel" but which also meets the requirements of Ignite?

    Well as loud as I was about it... I went ahead and did it anyway. I went on a cruise, and needed to reset when I got back. I am surprised at how doable it was/is. I haven't really been tempted by restaurants or parties because there haven't been any. Just felt I should let everyone know... to be fair.

    Hey thanks for the info. I understand the concept of cleanse and detox. Actually at first I thought that was what the 21 day deal was until I read the rest of the plan. Even for a cleans/detox its pretty long. I think 14 days is the longest I'd try it.

    Thank You. I would like to see your shopping list items.
    You are probably right about the reason... I don't want to give up cheese or drink unsweetened coffee.

    When I read the "why dairy is evil" article I didn't see any good justification for why everyone should stop consuming it. There are some people that have allergies or problems digesting it, but that doesn't make it bad for everyone. If humans were not ok to consume it EVERYONE would have trouble digesting it.

    papercut2k: I didn't call anyone nuts for following it. The people that came up with it are the nuts.
    Those other diets you listed are not nearly so restrictive for so long. Also those diets recommend not eating artificial sweeteners while this one says that if you do it just once, you have completely failed and must go back to day 1 and try not to be such a failure at eating. Anyway that's the way I read it.

    I read them, and I am aware that some people have health problems related to those items. There is some science to some of the claims in the articles, but there is NOT science in many of the conclusions drawn by the authors of the articles. More importantly there is no science indicating that eliminating these six items are the only and best way to achieve a healthy diet.

    I don't "believe" you should assume what or how I eat. I know how ultra-restrictive diets can seem easier because there is less to think about. After reading through it all I stand by my opinion that this diet is the most restrictive and complicated one I have ever seen. Paleo and McDougal are easier by comparison.

    Congratulations on finishing your 21 days though. Did you really dispose of all of your existing food when you started? Did you really buy the expensive shakes?

    198west answered the Question: Introducing milk to my Ignite diet for pregnancy

    I have heard that pregnant women should eat exactly what they want to eat and should not diet.
