For those looking for a P4 plan, here are my thoughts on 3 good choices that keep you eating lots of real, clean foods:

Want to desensitize yourself to carbs and flood your body with foods that will heal your adrenals?
Try FMD [Fast Metabolism Diet, Hayley Pomroy]. (2 days grains & fruit-no fat, 2 days protein and veggies_no fat, 3 days healthy fats veggies, fruit, minimal grains-moderate fat) This plan disallows coffee and dairy.
Overview: http://www.chewfo.com/diets/the-fast...oid-food-list/
Pros: everything is yummy, you have choices within each meal, you get to eat grains and sweet fruits, and a lot of them.
Cons: takes lots of planning and dealing with leftovers of things you can't eat again till next week, the Part2 days are a little more challenging because you only have protein and veggies to work with. No matter what I did, I gained on the Part3 days. I never figured that out.

Want the healing effects of FMD but without the structure?
Try THM [Trim Healthy Mama] choose every 3 hours from either fat+protein/veg berries, or starch+protein/veg fruit, or protein/veg no fat or fruit. Plan allows dairy and a tsp of fat with starch meals.
Overview: http://savvyhomemaking.com/trim_heal...ew_start_here/
Pros: Most flexible. You get to have dairy proteins. You can have a tiny bit of fat with starch meals.
Cons: Most flexible-its' easy to mess up because you do have so many choices. Even when you are allowed starches, they are restricted to small portions.

THM is closest to P3 eating with a template on how to incorporate starch into P3 framework without disaster.

Want to zero in on what "healthy" foods might be causing gains for you and hidden inflammation that could be the source of arthritis, skin conditions, hormone or gastric problems--not to mention weight gain:
Try THE PLAN [Lyn-Genet Recitas].
Overview: http://www.chewfo.com/diets/the-plan...oid-food-list/
Pros: you might actually finally figure out what your real friendly foods are, not just the benign ones and learn how to use that to lose some weight when needed. All the recipes are yummy.
Cons: a LOT of prep and expensive ingredients, and results are not always decipherable without expert help. (and even then....) You will not be eating "like yourself" for a really long time because every little thing has to be isolated and given its own test day.
