Hi all, I am finding it hard to find bacon/ham and mayonnaise that are nitrate/sugar free? do you use specific brands of stuff? I did this diet about 7 years ago with much success and have tried to get back on the wagon a few times with no success. I want to try again as it is amazing how much you can eat and how satisfied you feel, but I feel that I am cheating (or else I have read it is harder for returners), so want to be as strict as possible. Also, when you have 'salad' do you only have romaine/iceberg lettuce or any bagged salad? how strict are you all? any help would be most appreciated.
