While on the Phase One Diet, we avoid all grains!
Read more here.
Including corn, and sugar, both of which are grains.
Seeds are different than grains and sometimes seeds are called false grains, or "pseudo-grains." Seeds such as sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, quinoa, and chia seeds are permitted on our phase one diet.
On Phase Two, moderate use of certain grains like oatmeal or flour tortillas is allowed while continuing to eat pseudo-grains like buckwheat, amaranth and quinoa-again, in moderation.
So yes, this means no WHEAT FLOUR! Why? Because yeast and fungus feed off of grains. We are trying to kill the yeast and fungus. Part of that is starving it to death.
