I believe that Duchaine was wrong when giving his vegetable recommendation. It is okay to have your green, fibrous veggies. These types of vegetables will not raise insulin levels, and because of the fiber contained in them, there are very few impact carbs (carbs minus fiber). I find that the veggies will serve two main purposes. They will allow you to feel fuller after a meal, and they will help you move your bowels. Trust me; this is a big one, unless you want to wind up getting fissures and getting so annoyed with the diet that you give up on it.
