How many of you, when starting the beach, went directly to Phase 2? If so, how were your results?

I don't really see the point in starting in Phase 2 because the diet is designed to detox the body from high-glycemic foods for two weeks during Phase 1. If that isn't done, the chances for success, IMO, would be hampered by cravings.

If you are pregnant or have very little to lose, it's recommended that you start with Phase II. I don't know if we have any chickies who did that.
Anyhow, welcome back to The Beach.

Oh, I didn't know that you could start P2 if you have only a little to lose! Thanks for telling us!

I think we have also had some in the past who were nursing really young babies who started in phase 2. Most people should go through phase 1.
