Melba Toast on the Liquid Amino Diet
One of the questions that our Health Coaches are asked frequently is which “cracker” to eat while on the Liquid Amino Diet. It can be dfficult to find melba toast or grissini breadsticks (which are the main ones recommended) and when you do find it, often times you will see that it has sugar in it (-ose words). Although we say not to eat things with sugar, or things ending in -ose, there are some exceptions to this rule. Vitamins, and “crackers” are one of them. On our protocol we do not limit you only to melba toast or grissini breadsticks, rather we suggest that eating ANY healthy cracker (Cheese-its don’t count) for the allotted 20 calories per day you will be fine. Eating your crackers is not a must, but is beneficial because it keeps your body processing carbohydrates, which makes the transition off of The Liquid Amino Diet much easier. If you do decide to take them out of your diet then please make sure you make up the calories in protein or veggies.
Bottom line…If you can find a cracker without sugar or sugar alcohols in it then that should be your first choice, but if you can’t, don’t fret, you will still lose. Health coaches are available to answer questions at 1-800-980-7208.
