Joy eat and smoothies

I have heard two different strategies as far as joy eats go. I’ve heard Brooke mention (maybe in her book?) that she recommends you wait 6 weeks before including weekly joy eats into your protocol so that you nix your sugar and flour addiction before stepping back into controlled eating those substances with joy eats. And I’ve heard her say to include them right out of the gate in the stop over eating course, so I’m just looking for some clarity around that!

Oh! I have also heard her mention no smoothies, but does she mean no store bought smoothies or is she also including home made smoothies that are of course within protocol? If so, is it because of the fruit and therefore insulin boost we get?
