  1. Hi Dr Mike, I am in C2 and doing really well. I have a question for you about the power cookie. Simmie Sanow on the FB – breakthrough page says the cookie with the cherries is not allowed in C2 and that we don’t need the almond paste. She seems to contradict some things in your breakthrough book. I am curious, who is she? How did she become the go to gal for your book? She runs all the FB sites for your book and is very legalistic when it comes to who can say and do what.

    Is she speaking for you? I want to make sure I am following the diet the way you intended.

    Sincerely,

    Elaine Schmidt
