    If you need to avoid pork, you can use turkey or beef bacon.

    You can start with day 3, or use this week to prep and start with Day 1 on Sunday.

    This recipe has a completely different nutritional information in the Spanish site. Here it says 10 gr per portion, there it is 14 gr per portion. How can this happen? It is really misleading and difficult to believe the rest of the information we are getting from diet doctor. And remember we are paying for it .... please explain and correct

    I wish the recipe didn't use 'ounces'...that being said, am I to assume I am to 'weigh' all the ingredients?

    Yes, measuring by weight is the most accurate way to ensure getting the precise amount of the ingredients, which is important for tracking the macros.
