I know you cringed at a few of the rules above -perhaps #6 in particular. But here's a bit of a reprieve. 10% foods are foods that don't necessarily follow the rules above - but foods you're still allowed to eat (or drink) 10% of the time.
100% nutritional discipline is never required for optimal progress. The difference, in results, between 90% adherence to your nutrition program and 100% adherence is negligible.
Just make sure you do the math and determine what 10% of the time really means. For example, if you're eating 6 meals per day for 7 days of the week - that's 42 meals. 10% of 42 is about 4. Therefore you're allowed to "break the rules" 4 meals each week.
