  1. Um, y’all are high. Dr. Now’s diet not only restricts by calories, but it also restricts carbs. So, no breads, pasta…even fruit is on the no no list. So, it isn’t eat what you want within x amount of calories. It is 1200 calories of protein and carbless vegetables. Like broccoli. Not potatoes.
