OK, I've done a little bit of research since my doctor's suggestion left me with a few questions. I found this No Starch diet that I think will serve my needs well during the next eight weeks. I'm going to stick with the no beef, pork, and lamb thing (something that this particular plan leaves in), but everything else? Looks like a keeper.

I think it will be totally doable. My boyfriend's main question? "Have you ever gone for eight weeks without pizza before?"
