Can you recommend a diet plan that doesn’t have DAIRY or EGGS?? I’m finding it difficult – most diet plans have eggs and dairy – So. Beach, Sonomo, Best Life – and I do best on a lower-carb – but I do eat high fiber whole grains, breads, cereals, & pasta. I’m familiar with the exchange diet since I have a family of diabetics and I’m trying to at least post pone it – I’m so proud of Ricki Lake – she’s a real role model for me.

I think the focal point of the diets you have mentioned is on eating a balanced diet, which basically consists of quality protein, complex carbs, and healthy fats. Dairy is not an essential element of a healthy diet and some would argue that consumption of dairy – with an exception of cultured products – is unhealthy.
As for eggs, they provide a pretty good source of protein, but can be easily replaced with other protein sources. In short, find a diet that you are comfortable with and do not worry about dairy or eggs.
