South Beach Diet - feeling hungry and weak and grouchy day 3 of ph1

01-11-2008, 02:31 PM
I woke up today feeling more tired but then I ate eggs and turkey bacon and had a small low sodium V8 and felt better. 2 hours later I was starving again!! Last night I was starving by 5pm after having salmon with veggies for lunch and two snacks one was celery with hummus and the other was chicken lunch meat with cheese roll ups. I dont know why I am so hungry I drink 12 glasses of water if not more a day and I am getting all my veggies. Ive always had this problem on diets being always hungry., I was hoping I wouldnt with this one.

This is what I ate yesterday.

2 egg and spinach quiches, glass of milk, V8 juice, cheese stick

snack- 7 almonds and a cheese stick

lunch- 6 oz salmon and brocoli

snack- 2 tablespoons of hummus on 3 celery stalks

snack#2- 5 fat free roasted chicken lunch meat slices with a slice of 2 percent cheese

dinner- 1/4 pound of taco meat in a salad with cheese, pinto beans, sour cream, salsa.

dessert- 2 tablespoons of cream cheese mixed with sugar free jello.

You would think this would be enough. I use all lowfat cheeses and everything. I also drink alot of water. I was also very grouchy last night and tired!

Day Three of Phase I is usually the hardest. Hang in there.

You can do it! Think of someone who is always hungrier than most people, like Posh Spice. Be glad you aren't that hungry all the time and know you can pull through!

You're doing great! I can tell from (very recent) experience that the third day is by far the worst. Just hang in there and keep on going with the variety of foods you have been eating. It will pay off!
