THM “Deep E” or “Refuel” Foods Chart

E image

“E” stands for “Energizing.” “E” meals are protein-centered meals that have a medium amount of carbohydrates, but have less fat. They utilize glucose as their chief fuel. The result is weight loss.

When you are working to lose weight, you want to eat what Serene and Pearl call “Refuel” foods, along with the “S” and “Fuel Pull” meals. What is confusing to me in the book is that “Refuel” foods are actually “Deep E” foods, so that’s what I call them.

“Deep E” foods are those foods restricted to the initial 2-week weight loss cycle for those just starting out on the THM diet. The purpose of these two weeks is to detoxify your body and get you accustomed to this new way of eating. It’s kind of like a practice run before getting into the THM lifestyle.
