Hi, with a little google I've found this.  I've been on for 3 days now and lost 5lbs already.  Hope this helps.

Ok, here are the Cliff Notes regarding the jump start for those of you without the book.

The four bad guys of bloat: stress, lack of fluid, lack of sleep, air travel.

Four Days, What to avoid:
1. The salt shaker, salt-based seasonings, and highly processed foods.
2. Excess carbs. Decrease your intake of high-carb foods such as:

Pasta, Bananas, Bagels & Pretzels.
3. Bulky Raw food (ie: eat cooked carrots, not raw)
4. Gassy foods:

Legumes, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage, Onion,

Peppers and Citrus fruits.
5. Chewing gum (you swallow air, causing bloat)
6. Sugar alcohols (Xyliyol & Maltitol)
7. Fried foods
8. Spicy foods
9. Carbonated drinks (soda!!!)
10. Alcohol, coffee, tea, hot cocoa and acidic fruit juices

Remember, these "rules" are just for the four day jump start period.

Four Days, What to do:
1. Follow the meal plan exactly ( I had to modify, as I am a vegetarian).
2. Eat four meals a day, for a total of 1,200 calories
3. Drink one full recipe of Sassy Water (recipe below).
4. Take a quick 5 minute after meal walk
5. Eat slowly
6. Work your mind (the book give you "mind tricks" to help keep you motivated).
