BTVC - While You're Waiting for it to Arrive

Deborah writes to someone waiting for their copy of BTVC to arrive:
I know how frustrated you must feel without the book, and wanting to go on the diet. Until it comes, a general rule is - all grains, all starches (potatoes, tapioca, taro, etc.), all seaweed, all canned veggies, all sweeteners except for honey and saccharine (plus fruit - pure fruit), all fluid and non-fermented/aged dairy products, all processed foods - are illegal.
