The Total 10 Shopping List

Use this list to buy food for The Total 10 Rapid Weight-Loss Plan.

Find everything you need for The Total 10 Rapid Weight-Loss Plan on this shopping list. It's part of the full, downloadable plan available here. Save and print the plan to make grocery shopping a breeze while following the diet.

As a rule of thumb, avoid the middle aisles of the store where you're more likely to find processed foods and foods with refined sugars -- both of which aren't allowed on Total 10. When you're near the dairy section, grab your 2% plain Greek yogurt and eggs and move on to the next part of the store because dairy (except for 1 cup 2% plain Greek yogurt per day) is also eliminated from your diet during the Total 10. If you stick to the guidelines of the plan and regularly consult this shopping list, you'll get the results you want and deserve.
