What is the CEA HOW food plan?

The CEA HOW food plan, "Forever Abstinent", is designed for people who have what we think of as an allergy to carbohydrates. Therefore, we abstain from all sugars, flour, and refined starches, as well as alcoholic beverages, sweets of any kind, nuts, and fried foods. We weigh and measure our food, and we eat three meals a day with nothing in between except for sugar free gum and zero calorie beverages.
“Oh, I can’t do that! I don’t have that kind of willpower” you might say. We said the same thing. We don’t have the willpower either. But by consistently using the Seven Tools of CEA HOW, we were able to do it, and we continue to do it one day at a time.
