    Phase 2 is pretty straight forward- no mixing of carbs or fats basically- you can bring back dairy/wheat (if you don't have any intolerances/candida etc) and keep things unprocessed. There is a list in the book of what you can have- grains, wholewheat pasta, brown rice etc. The odd glass of wine with a meal too :D If you haven't got the recipe book, I'd really recommend it- found some great meals in there that my OH loves too!
    I lost half a stone on phase 1 and am looking forward to the next bit :D

    Well, it certainly IS idiot-proof, but not sure if it's advertised that way :p

    I've just been reading this book and was wondering how you were getting on. Does it really get rid of the cravings and stop the tiredness like it says it does?

    I've been eating too much processed food and am feeling bla ruddy bla, so am looking for a healthier plan

    The Harcombe diet one. I have got the pig to twig one and although I loved the book I couldnt get on with the diet it gave me terrible heartburn - must have been the fat content
