    Its very hard to find gluten free food at a restaurant. I have to go off the reservation and people look at me like I have a disease. I read that gluten only impacts 1 - 2% of the population in a negative way. After I follow ignite and go back and eat some gluten, assuming my body reacts ok after the detox period is there any reason to avoid or watch gluten intake after ignite is complete?

    smacky311 asked the Question: Fair Turkey Legs

    Are faire turkey legs fair game for ignite? Looking online I see at least one copycat recipe uses honey:

    I'm no nutrition expert, but being a baste I would guess its less than 10g of sugar.

    smacky311 asked the Question: Is the detox shake necessary?

    This is my first day as a member of daily burn and ignite. I was at 230 and I've managed to get down to 200 and stay there for a year with diet and light exercise. I have hit a wall. I'm learning the basics of the recommended diet. I must admit that I'm a little turned off by the detox shake. I'm a believer in natural foods. I believe people in the past centuries have maintained good health without special shakes. I've experienced nasty side effects with products such as "ripped fuel" and energy drinks. Because of these bad experiences I'm skeptical and hesitant to take man made supplements of any kind. I'm not a bodybuilder. I'm just a guy trying to get in decent shape and stay off medications. Do I need these shakes? Can I get by with exercise and the natural foods, vegetables and other items listed in Ignite's grocery list?

    According to the Ignite Quickstart Guide page 5 honey should be removed:

    "Don’t eat anything with over 10g of added sugar per serving. Beware
    of sauces (they often have sugar). Added sugar hides in food in many
    ways: high fructose corn syrup, honey [...]"
