    When and how can you introduce fruit into the program?

    Hi Juli,

    Most fruits are considered non- starchy carbohydrates. Therefore, when one of the meal formulas calls for a serving of non- starchy carbohydrates you could have either non- starchy fruits or non- starchy vegetables. In the Balanced Meal Formula we recommend for dinner during the Trimsition phase you have 1 serve of protein, 1 serve of starchy carbs and 2 serves of non- starchy carbs (which could be 2 serves of non- starchy vegetables, or 1 serve of non- starchy fruit + 1 serve of non- starchy vegetables if you wish). We recommend no more than 2 servings of fruit per day due to the higher sugar content.
    Where we have stated that you may have ‘non- starchy vegetables’ i.e, during the FAST Start dinner meal or as an addition to protein snacks, this means only vegetable options, not fruit.

    Kindest Regards,

    So…I could have Greek yoghurt and fruit like blueberrys and banana for a breakfast option occasionally?

    Hi Annie,

    The breakfast meal is 2 serves of protein and 1 serve of starchy or non- starchy carbs.

    Here are a few other options you could try:

    Yoghurt smoothie: 1 cup milk + 1/2 cup Greek yoghurt (protein); 1/2 cup berries or 1 small banana (starchy or non- starchy carbs).

    Muesli: 1/4 cup uncooked oats (starchy carb); ½ cup milk + 1/2 cup Greek
    yoghurt + 8 almonds chopped (protein). Sprinkle with cinnamon.

    Kind Regards,
