Thanks everyone for suggestions …. very helpful. I didn`t realize red meat should be avoided. In fact the past 3 days it has been chicken, steamed veggies, greek yogurt, + salads. fresh garlic, olive oil & lemon dressing for everything!
I have been taking acidophilus + lots of water. The itchy skin is almost completely gone + I`ve never had such a flat, non bloated stomach! I think I`m off to a good start. In fact, I went to a garden wedding today …. lots of canapes + wine flowing everywhere… I had 4 pieces of cold asperagus * 2 glasses of spring water. It was a huge test! LOL.
Thanks again & I`m off to read more pages of the past posts.
