I believe LizzRR put the calorie guidelines for P2 and P3 up, but I dont remember the thread name. But I do remember that p2 is roughly 1100 calories a day, and P3 is around 1400 cals a day. each phase adds 300 calories from the 800 cal guideline for P1. WHen you get to maintenance, your calorie/nutrition should be based on your individual needs, and not according to the protocol sheet.

I had my first fun day today. Not too crazy.....had a p3 breakfast, then 2 fajitas at lunch with whole wheat tortillas, and 3 pieces of a small pizza for dinner with a 1 cup serving of blue bell light ice cream. I haven't eaten that much in forever, it feels like, but I felt like I ate a month's worth of food!! LOL I'm ready for a P1 day tomorrow.
Thanks for the workout info. Time for me to motivate!!!! Have a great week!
Thanks for the information Ken!! I logged my food in looks like my calories are around 1480. Hopefully that is fine. Maybe I'll have do drop 1/2 of an english muffin (which I don't want to do!).

I did plyometrics this morning at 5:00 a.m. It went really well, but I'm a cardio kind of girl! I'm a little sore from yesterday's Chest/Back workout, but that is to be expected...I feel like I actually did something!

Your cheat day sounds very yummy! I'm not so sure that I'm really going to go "all out" on mine. The breakfasts, so far, really fill me up...I just love them!! I hope that your phase 1 day goes well today. You'll have to keep us posted on how the weight fluctuates when we cheat. Thanks again for your expertise...and have a great week!
