... chicken is also avoided. After one year of no beef, you can have 3 oz. of beef each week. ... (24 replies)
... Hi all, I was wondering about the rationale behind the no beef/no pork part of the first year of the SWANK diet. Is this because of the fat content, or is there something specific to beef/pork that is a problem? If it is a matter of the fat content, I'd like to try to get a clear answer on that so that I can make decisions with the right "spirit of the rule" in mind. ... (24 replies)
... Sushi rice is not a sticky rice. The rice is prepared (slightly overcooked) and vinegar is added to make it sticky. Real sticky rice is a variety grown in SE Asia. PS: I LOooooove sushi!:D:D:D:D:D:D (24 replies)

... Re: white rice, think of white carbohydrates in general converting to sugar in the body and swiftly -- these things are high on the glycemic index (and associated with inflammation.) Gluten is a whole 'nother aspect but there are some people with gluten sensitivites who do okay with spelt and sprouted wheat bread (like Ezekiel). Even though these things do have gluten,...

... When considering deli meat, not only is it if there is a mixture of white and dark meat, it maybe that it's cooked/roasted with the skin. Fat from the skin drains into the meat when cooking. I follow the swank diet. It has always been one of my questions, Is deli meat ok? I've decided to eat it as long as it is chicken/turkey BREAST. Also, I eat fat free cheeses (if... (24 replies)
... The inflammation angle is another interesting one to me. In the past I have done the elimination diet to determine if I had any specific food sensitivities. ... (24 replies)
... lunch meats, they are often highly processed. While I don't follow any set diet I wind up implementing a lot of principles from Swank, MS Recovery and Best Bet by some degree of default. ... (24 replies)
... I'm not sure if it's 'alright', but I buy those low fat or 0 fat deli meats and eat them. Chicken and turkey, mmm. I think the no no is that they can contain dark meat chicken and turkey, and that's listed as to be avoided in the diet. ... (24 replies)
... For what it's worth, I was wondering the same thing. The emphasis of Swank's diet is on limiting saturated fat, so as long as you figure the red meat into this, I don't understand the difference. ... (24 replies)
... Hello again Melanie. :) You can go vegetarian and be very healthy in doing so. Keep in mind that there will be several vitamins you'll be short on/missing in what meats are allowed within the Swank diet. For those, you may have to integrate other types of foods or supplements into your diet. If you continue to allow egg products, I have found that eating only the egg... (24 replies)

... yes, I know that fish and chicken, etc. are allowed. but if I'm going to be avoiding beef and pork, I might as well just go ahead and get rid of all the flesh at the same time, since that was a goal of mine anyway. ... (24 replies)
... To clarify, I thought the WHOLE thing was strict -- didn't realize that at some point you could integrate things like red meat back into your diet. Most people I've seen on Swank for a very long time don't eat red meat at all. I just read the other day that there's a small study being conducted (or will commence) comparing the Best Bet Diet (Ashton Embry) to Swank. (24 replies)
... Oh yeah, the first year on Swank is quite strict :) Like Jayhawk mentioned, once my year is up, I doubt I'll be back to eating red meat. For my tastes (I was vegetarian for several years as a teenager), I'm completely fine with turkey and chicken instead of red meat. I don't have a taste for certain red meats as it is :). One bonus with the diet, I've lost a lot of... (24 replies)
