It also said that no more than 4 ounces of wine per day was OK. Another site says you can consume a "moderate" (defined as 1/4 to 1/2 cup total per day)
> Sunnybrook Health Science Center's MAOI Diet, which I generally follow, says to avoid all cheese except fresh cottage cheese, cream, ricotta, processed cheese slices, and allows no more than 2 domestic bottled or canned beers (including nonalcoholic) or 4 fluid ounces glasses of red or white wine per day.

With cheeses, don't take the lists provided as total - basically fresh cheeses (what they list) are fine, including mozzarella! If you're craving a cheese that melts, like I was, mozzarella is your friend! Plus, they seem to come out with new cheeses all time. I always find out if it's a "fresh" vs. aged cheese and go for it if I'm positive it's fresh. (Usually the white creamy cheeses.)

RE: soy sauce, I've seen numerous sites that say it's okay in limited amounts, no more than a tbsp. Since I've been fine on that, I see no reason to exclude it from my diet. (Personal choice.)

RE: alcohol. I have also ready varying amounts for red and white wines, and beer some more generous than others. I, personally, have interpreted this to be 'in moderation'. I have had as much as three glasses of red wine & champagne in an evening with no averse effects. I've also had three or so beers and been just fine.

The issue with beer, is as Bobbie said - the danger lies in possible moldy or unclean processes. That's why tap beer & homemade beer are no's, and some of the smaller microbrews are questionable and therefore taboo (in my mind). I also extrapolated this to mean the homemade wine my friend gave me should be totally off limits. (Didn't want to chance it.)

I've had all types of hard liquors, in moderation, with no adverse effects as well.

Please note: these are MY opinions and MY experiences, your mileage may vary.
