OP again- i am pretty sure this is what im going to do:

Basic Philosophy: Emphasis is not given solely to controlling insulin production but to "Five Hidden Weight Gain Factors" being

Liver toxicity
Waterlogged tissues
Fear of eating fat
Excess insulin
Stress fat
By the numbers: The ratios resemble the the Zone's 40/30/30, and the Dr. Sears has written a forward for the Fat Flush Plan

Method: The plan has three set guidelines
Phase 1: The two week Fat Flush
Phase 2: Ongoing fat Flush
Phase 3: The lifestyle eating plan

Phase 1 is the 'toughest' stage of the program and has been labled 'bootcamp'. It is first and foremost a cleansing program to facilitate weight loss by giving the liver support and nourishment.

Phase 2 is designed for ongoing weight loss with a bit more variety in food choices adding back a 'friendly' carb each week to check for adverse reaction to it.

Phase 3 is really the fat flush maintance program providing a lifelong eating program aimed at increasing your vitality and well-being for life. Now 2 dairy products can be reintroduced and a variety of starchier veggies and nongluten grains. Once again new foods are added back one at a time to gauge your bodies reaction. Once on this stage of the program you will likely find your daily percentages work out at the ratio 40:30:30

The FFP is made up of whole natural foods eaten without salt.
Cut out are trans fats, caffine, diet sodas, alcohol, aspartame, sugar, yeast relalted vinegars (except apple cider vinegar), all grains and cereals, starchy vegetables, in the first phases dairy products (except whey) are also cut.

Flaxseed oil (2 tlbs) and essential fatty acid supplement are to be taken daily.
1 cup of unsweetened Cranberry juice is to be watered down to make up 64 oz and taken throughout the day.
First thing upon waking and last thing at night you have a teaspoon of psyllium husks in a glass of the 'cran-water' dubbed the 'Long life cocktail'.
Lemon juice in morning in hot water.
Lean Protein up to 8oz a day.
Eggs up to 2 a day.
Vegetables unlimited from a choice of non starchy low GI selection.
Fruit up to 2 a day from the low GI and carb, eg; 1/2 grapefruit or 1 c berries equals one choice.

Typical menu:

A Day on Phase 1: The 2-Week Fat Flush Plan

Try this sample menu:

On arising:
Long Life Cocktail

Before breakfast:
8 ounces hot water with lemon juice

Veggie scramble: 2 scrambled eggs with spinach, green peppers, scallions and parsley, and one 8-ounce glass of cran-water

Midmorning snack:
1/2 large grapefruit

20 minutes before lunch:
One 8-ounce glass of cran-water

4 ounces of salmon with lemon and garlic, warm asparagus, mixed-green salad with broccoli florets and cucumber, 1 tablespoon flaxseed oil, and one 8-ounce glass of cran-water

Two 8-ounce glasses of cran-water

4pm snack:
1 apple

20 minutes before dinner:
One 8-ounce glass cran-water

4 ounces of grilled lamb chop with a pinch of cinnamon and a dash of dried mustard, sautéed kale in broth, baked summer squash with a touch of cloves, and 1 tablespoon flaxseed oil

Long Life Cocktail

How to Use This Menu:
You can use this example as a basic menu guide. Just substitute foods from the same food groups for daily variety. Besides the daily diet, take GLA supplements, and a balanced multivitamin/mineral. You can change the fluid intake to suit your schedule if that is more convenient, of course.

Unique Fatures: No herbs or spices except for those fat flushing herbs and spices outlined in The Fat Flush Plan
No margarine
No alcohol
No sugar
No oils or fats except those in the flaxseed oil
No grains, bread, cereal or starchy vegetables such as beans, potatoes, corn, parsnips, carrots, peas, pumpkin, or acorn or butternut squash
No dairy products

I think you will have better lifelong "luck" eating to suit your hunger... keeping your tummy fullness at neither starving nor stuffed... like you are neither hungry nor full. Allow your body to eat what it wishes but do not overstuff yourself or eat unless you start to get hungry... Your body will start to crave good things naturally and by not putting foods on a "do not touch" list- allieviates or rids the power they might have to you... instead practice loving yourself and appreciating yourself for the positive things you do have about yourself. How many times have you eaten other things just trying to avoid the one thing you are craving, ending up eating more calories than you would othewise anyway, and then end up eating the thing you were craving in the first place? Once you tell yourself and truly believe that no food is forbidden and you can have it whenever you want... it is a non issue. There is such a relief. Granted - it is a process and self discovery. You can trust your body to tell you what foods it needs. Just let it. The hungrier you are when you finally let yourself eat, the more you will want to eat or end up eating.. guaranteed. read - Intuitive Eating

The only concern I would have is that having psyllium husks at night and in the morning is essentially ingesting a laxative to help things move along. I would be a bit concerned as to how that might affect your system's balance....
