Ice cream Illegal Commercially prepared ice cream is not allowed. However, there are many wonderful recipes for homemade ice cream.
Inositol Illegal Inositol is a sugar alcohol. Sugar alcohols will
feed bacteria and that is something we do not want to do. Sugar alcohols generally cause diarrhea but small amounts in supplements are ok - Elaine
Inulin Illegal Inulin is a FOS and is illegal, see Inulin
Iron supplements Illegal Please do not get vitamins with iron; they encourage all kinds of infections especially in the gut, and iron has had much research done on it re other diseases. No oral iron if you can help it. Just eat the liver pate and if you like liver, eat it at least once a week.
Isoglucose Illegal It is a new sweetner likely to be used in many products in future. See Isoglucose

We got this book after reading an article in the Wall Street Journal. From Day 1, my husband felt better. His spirits are up, and I see the joyful and optimistic man I married returning! He sees the results, and has become absolutely manic about sticking to the diet. During the first few days he was worried about all the things he couldn't eat - now he raves about all the things he still CAN eat, and is loving it all.
