V8 Juice Illegal It has tomato paste listed as an ingredient. Elaine has listed tomato paste as being illegal. It is also made from concentrate and has added sugar.
Vanillin But not in concentrated form see Vanillin
Vegetable stearate I believe that stearate is always a fat (stearic acid) so vegetable stearate would be a fat from some vegetable like coconut, etc. -- Elaine
Vegetables (canned) Illegal Canned vegetables are not permitted; they must either be fresh or frozen.
Vinegar Red and white wine vinegar also white and cider vinegars are allowed but check the label for added illegals. Balsamic vinegar is not allowed as it has added sugar. However you can make your own legal balsamic vinegar substitute see scdrecipe
Vodka Only have it occasionally.

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.
