You can substitute with another phase-specific item. You might want to pick up extra veggies for snacking. We’ve given minimum ingredient quantities to make a week’s worth of recipes (you’ll often have some leftovers). When no quantity is listed, assume that a standard container will contain plenty of the ingredient. We’ve also noted when you’ll need a larger quantity for those using 1 ½ portions (20+ lbs. weight loss goal). For a few items, like almond butter, you only need a couple of tablespoons. You could substitute a different snack, or choose a different nut butter. For stevia and xylitol. You don’t have to buy both – you can choose one or the other and substitute in recipes. 1 tsp of xylitol is equivalent to about 1/8 tsp. of stevia.
