LOL Are You Serious? Heather question of "IF"

I was told by somebody that "my diet" didn't conform to the EFI guidelines because "I" was eating too much IF.
I find this ridiculous because I eat AT MOST 20 grams of fiber per day.

Moreover though, this person told me my diet wasn't conforming to the EFI protocol because I was eating the following foods:

Quote:


Envirkids Frosted Flakes
Envirokids Gorilla Munch Cereal
Horseradish Mustard
Caribbean Jerk
Rice crackers
Seasome Crackers
Brown Rice Protein Powder
Frozen Spinach
French Style Green Beans
diced green chillis
corn tortillas
Paprika/cumin/chili powder
Pepper Relish





Now for crying out loud, LOL, are you serious?
I checked, virtually of all these foods listed has NO FIBER, and many of them have ZERO carbs.
I find it incredibly hard to believe that if a food product has less than 1 gram of fiber (or even 2 grams) that somehow it is high in "IF" and not EFI safe.

I mean seriously, we are talking about mustard and brown rice protein powder...all of 1 gram of fiber.
Is this absurd or true?


Yes, I plead guilty.
On my sandwiches I like to have mustard+hot pepper relish slabbed between two pieces of bread (without any lettuce mind you!).

Yes, I plead guility, I also like to have Brown Rice Protein Powder which Heather said was safe since it has less than ONE GRAM of fiber.

I am sorry, but nowhere on Heather's EFI guide, or IF foods to avoid did I ever get the impression that mustard/paprika/cumin/brown rice protein powder were "bad guys" to "watch out for."

Now am I wrong, am "I" missing something, or is this critque absolutely nit-picky, splitting hairs, and taking the IF thing way too close to a molecular level?

I mean seriously, to me, IF caution=foods with a lot fiber (raw lettuce).
Processed Brown Rice Powder and Mustard DO NOT seem IF, they have less than 1 gram of FIBER!
