D - 6oz steak w/ garlic and sea salt, 2 cups mushrooms and 2 cups of yellow squash, 2 tsp olive oil
S - Advantedge sp? choc shake

I had to add the egg in because I was pretty hungry midday. I've heard that will dissipate next week. I think I'll be one of the people who will have to break up the protein between lunch and dinner.

Since I am new and am doing this on my own, I have a few simple questions. I've researched the heck out this diet, so I feel like I have things pretty much figured out. However, I have one question about the dinner protein. Are there any requirements as to the fat content of the steak? It says sirloin, tenderloin, etc. but do I need to cut the fat off? Also, what is considered extra-lean hamburger? I bought some that is 93/7 and hope that's okay.

Thank you!!!!
Welcome Zoerba! First, you probably want to break your veggies up and have two cups at lunch and two at dinner - that will help with the hunger. The diet really is designed to break them into two meals (look at the Phase 1 sheet in the first post of the daily/weekend chat).

I cut the fat of my steak - lean protein is what you want. 93/7 hamburger should be just fine.

My coach said I could cut down to 6 oz of protein once I had lost (if I remember correctly) about 75 pounds. That said, I do sometimes add a couple ounces of meat or a hard boiled egg during the day if I'm feeling hungry.
