Do I Have To Purchase Special Diet Foods Or Take Prescription Drugs?
The Michaelson Method relies on regular supermarket and restaurant foods. There is no need to purchase — and Dr. Michaelson's office does not sell or profit from — any commercial diet foods or supplements. In restaurants or at home, the Method allows you to eat all you want, whenever you need to, of satisfying YES foods such as seafood of every variety, chicken and other poultry, lean red meat, high-fiber, low-starch vegetables, nuts, and berries, as well as savory cheeses, whole eggs, butter, creamy salad dressings, and rich-artificially sweetened desserts.
In addition, some prescription medications and over-the-counter shakes, protein bars, vitamins, fiber supplements and other products can be very helpful. Their use is determined collaboratively on a case-by-case basis to ensure that they are safe and effective and tailored to the medical needs and lifestyle preferences of each individual patient.
