Anyone here add clean eating in addition to their program? I’m thinking i need to try it to see if It helps other(non surgery related) health issues I have. It seems so daunting to add what you can’t have eating to clean to what we already need to

What are good products to get there? I know they have a low carb yogurt, but anything else? I am making a trek to one that is pretty far but I am wanting to try their stuff and then maybe making a monthly trek to stock up on whatever I like but I want
