The Starter Diet (How Long?)



I'm eating the soup now and the weight loss has stopped but I got the
impression from the book that until the diarreah is under control (its not)I couldn't add new foods! Now i see that  can add applesauce Etc. What’s the order of priorities here? . Introducing new foods(which would be a big help as I'm about chicken souped out) or waiting till the D is under control. If applesauce is ok,how about fresh juice from a juicemaker?or fresh juice to make gelatin?

I have revised and reprinted the book many times and have tried to clear up this point to the best of my ability.  On page 5l of the 7th printing, I say stay on the introductory diet for about five days.  If you have not seen any improvement in that time, you can still add some variety by adding the items on the bottom of page 51.  At the end of a month, if there is no improvement, I suggest that the diet may not be working.  Yet some people stayed with it and found it worked after a few months.  I cannot take the responsibility of having someone stay on a limited (but healthy) diet which may cause them to lose weight  for an indefinite time.  It is up to you. Every person reacts a little differently and you just have to use your own judgment after I show you the way to go - the direction in which to go.  I am sorry if this sounds like a cop-out but I just can't do any better.  Best wishes, Elaine
