    I take warfarin and it is difficult for me to find a diet that I can lose weight. Most of the diet are based on green leafy salads. Do you have a diet that I can do to lose weight? Plus I have high cholesterol, the Dr. want me to lose 60 pounds.

    I am a vegetarian and do not eat the suggested meats in the plans given. How can I be successful with this plan and not eat meat?

    I recently started the FFP and have all my supplements, etc. lined up. My questions is: I found an organic natural sweetener called; BLUE AGAVE NECTAR, touted for it’s low glycemic index- it tastes wonderful and doesn’t clump-up like the stevia. Is it legal on the Fat Flush Plan????
