    Broccoli, Asparagus, pineapple, etc? Can I eat these and how?

    I love broccoli so much. I can usually just boil a bag of frozen spears. Is broccoli safe on VLCD?
    I love pineapple a lot too. I usually just eat it right from the can. I only eat the kind of pineapple that uses pineapple in it's own juice. Is this safe to eat on VLCD?
    I have never really eaten Asparagus, but I am willing to try. Any particular ways to make it?

    Asparagus is the only item you mention that is on the protocol. Pineapple is especially bad. some people can eat broccoli okay but it may not work for you. It's not on protocol, as I said.

    you can have broccoli in P3 to be on the safe side.

    Pineapple is probably one of the highest GI fruit so you will want to introduce it gradually in P4.

    Here's a list of allowed foods copied from Pounds & Inches:


    The Diet

    The 500 Calorie diet is explained on the day of the second injection to those patients who will be preparing their own food, and it is most important that the person who will actually cook is present - the wife, the mother or the cook, as the case may be. Here in Italy patients are given the following diet sheet.

    BREAKFAST: Tea or coffee in any quantity without sugar. Only one tablespoonful of milk allowed in 24 hours. Saccharin or other sweeteners may be used.

    LUNCH: 100 grams of veal, beef, chicken breast, fresh white fish, lobster, crab, or shrimp. All visible fat must be carefully removed before cooking, and the meat must be weighed raw. It must be boiled or grilled without additional fat. Salmon, eel, tuna, herring, dried or pickled fish are not allowed. The chicken breast must be removed raw from the bird.
    One type of vegetable only to be chosen from the following: spinach, chard, chicory, beet-greens, green salad, tomatoes, celery, fennel, onions, red radishes, cucumbers, asparagus, cabbage.
    One breadstick (grissino) or one Melba toast.
    An apple or an orange or a handful of strawberries or one-half grapefruit.

    DINNER : The same four choices as lunch.

    The juice of one lemon daily is allowed for all purposes. Salt, pepper, vinegar, mustard powder, garlic, sweet basil, parsley, thyme, majoram, etc., may be used for seasoning, but no oil, butter or dressing.
    Tea, coffee, plain water, or mineral water are the only drinks allowed, but they may be taken in any quantity and at all times.
    In fact, the patient should drink about 2 liters of these fluids per day. Many patients are afraid to drink so much because they fear that this may make them retain more water. This is a wrong notion as the body is more inclined to store water when the intake falls below its normal requirements.
    The fruit or the breadstick may be eaten between meals instead of with lunch or dinner, but not more than than four items listed for lunch and dinner may be eaten at one meal.
