I’m stocking up the freezer and the pantry this week in preparation for the 28-Day Diet to determine my Metabolic Function Index.  Next week I’ll be shopping from the deli and the fresh produce section of the store.

In his book, Is Your Thyroid Making You Fat?, Dr. Sanford Siegal gives a long list of recommended foods on pages 137-157 for the 28-Day Diet.  Here’s what I’m buying this week from his list, keeping in mind our alkaline OsteoDiet guidelines:

Beef, choice and select cuts, as recommended on page 137.
Frozen chicken (hormone-free)
Frozen cod, flounder, or whiting
Canned tuna fish packed in water
A dozen or so frozen meals (Healthy Choice, Stouffer’s Lean Cuisine Entrees, and/or Weight Watchers) from the list on pages 146-148.
Unsweetened applesauce
Canned pineapple, packed in water or juice
Frozen strawberries, cherries
Frozen broccoli, peas, etc.
Seltzer water
Herbal teas
Butter-flavored cooking spray
Low-calorie Italian or vinaigrette salad dressing

Dr. Siegal also recommends a daily vitamin/mineral supplement.  I take Twice Daily Essential Packets, purchased from Dr. Steven D’Antonio, my naturopathic physician.

As I mentioned, I’ll be buying foods from the deli and the produce section next week.

Only 10 days until our 28-Day Diet adventure!
