Vital Energy Tips
This is the strict list of items to avoid during the first phase of this eating plan, until you have reached your weight loss goal. Vegetarians have a more limited protein list, if you continue to have success, you add in some nuts, seeds, and cheese sticks. Goat cheese and sheeps cheese is less sluggish on the system than cows milk cheese. If this slows down your results..... I recommend you cut them out. You may just have to have more of the meal replacement and eggs for your protein.
