If you read the instructions carefully you will see that you can use any one of the alternatives listed. The sample menu is just a suggestion. So if it says 1 fruit, you can eat any fruit or even use half a glass of fruit juice, wholewheat bread can be replaced with rye bread or any other type of bread, lean meat can be replaced by fish or egg or even low-fat cheese, etc. Based on research findings people who eat low-fat, high-fibre diets for other purposes such as blood cholesterol lowering, start to lose weight even if they eat the food 'ad lib' (as much as they want), this diet is based on the low-fat principle and is not only an energy reduced diet. As an adult woman who is going to do some exercise and wants to lose some weight you would need about 1500 cal. You can, therefore, eat some additional high-fibre carbs to s upply you with the additional energy you may require.
