The Green List

Green is an all-you-can-eat list – you choose anything you like without worrying about the carbohydrate content as all the foods will be between 0 to 5g/100g.

It will be almost impossible to overdo your carbohydrate intake by sticking to this group of foods. Eat a moderate amount of good quality (not processed) animal protein at each meal.

Caution: even though these are all-you-can-eat foods, only eat when hungry, stop when full and do not overeat.
