Alantra, remember to get in 4 1/2 cups of veggies daily. Also you can have 2 cups of low fat or FF dairy daily. Also 2 Tbs. healthy oils. Welcome to SB!

:welcome: to The Beach, Alantra! I hope you've read the book so you'll understand the fundamentals of this plan before you got started.

Your menu looks good, except make sure you are getting the required amount of veggies every day. They'll help fill you up, along with including beans and dairy, and will also help in preventing the SBD flu that many Phase 1ers get around the 2nd to 3rd day in.

Come and join us in the Daily thread, so we can get to know you, and please check out our recipe and FAQ section for some great recipes and and helpful information.
