I was extremely skeptical of this diet until my reproductive endocrinologist suggested I do it since nothing else had worked to allow me to ovulate in 9 years. I started ovulating immediately after doing the 40 days of Phase 2 and got pregnant within 2 months! Not to mention I lost tons of weight too! This diet also allowed me to lose the baby weight.

You may not have a dehydrator so here's a way to make your own fruit leather or roll ups in your oven.

Fruit Leather

4 C strawberries or peeled apples
(pictured is mixed berries)
2 T or more powdered stevia
1/4 C fresh lemon juice

Preheat oven 170-200 degrees. Cover baking sheet with plastic wrap.
Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Run through a sieve, if desired, for a smoother texture (to remove seeds, etc. - I did not.)

Spread evenly on pan. 

Place the pan on the top rack of the oven.

Bake for at least 4 hours leaving door partway open, if desired. 

You'll know it's dry when it's no longer tacky and you can tear it.

Either place the whole pan on a cooling rack, remove the plastic wrap from the pan and cool on the cooling rack or only remove the fruit leather and place on a cooling rack until completely cooled.

Cut into pieces.

To store: store in an airtight container or Ziploc.
