I asked if I could just double up on broccoli, spinach, green beans, or zucchini (those are my favorite veggies anyway), but was told I needed to eat the starchy ones. I don't understand why, considering that after this week I won't eat any of them ever. I may talk with some of the other consultants at the center to see if that would be permissible

Did any of you maintenance MRC'ers struggle with transition? I really feel like I just want to add a bit more of the same foods I'm already eating (of the veggies and protein, not necessarily the starches). Did you skip the starchier vegetables and just eat more of the green menu ones?

AshleyRae: I followed the transitions foods that way I knew which ones would make me gain and all 4wks I lost weight LOL! Just know that after transition it's all counting calories and eating really healthy but you don't have to stick to the green menu or their foods, in fact I've been eating what I want in moderation and this week so far I'm down another lb, I go weigh in Friday, go figure huh
