What to Eat
I want to join the boot camp. But I have a few questions: (1) Can you have any dairy? (2) Eggs? (3) Yams or sweet potatoes? (4) Any vegetables besides green ones?

I'd keep your dairy intake to eight ounces of low-fat or fat-free milk or yogurt per day. And yes, you can have eggs. Now the yams and sweet potatoes, that's a no, not while you're in the boot camp phase. When you get into maintenance, you can add them back in. As for other vegetables, you can have all of them except corn, potatoes, and beets. So yes on tomatoes, yes on squash. You can even have carrots. Nobody ever got fat eating carrots.
