THM “Fuel Pull” Foods Chart

A Fuel Pull (“FP”) day is low in carbohydrates and low in fats. Consequently, they are naturally low calories days. They utilize the body’s own body fat for fuel since they do not contain a primary dietary fuel.

The FP meals are intended for days 4, 5, 11 and 12 of the initial THM weight loss cycle and for any days that you want to push weight loss into a higher gear. However, Serene and Pearl caution readers not to eat Fuel Pull meals for more than two solid days in a row.
