I'm surrounded by delicious farmer's market food. But still, didn't plan well. I gave up caffeine today (not sure if that is going to stick or not!) so maybe that is why I was starving all day???

Hey all!
Quite a ride since I last posted! Tapas bar with friends (some white flour breading although not much on goat cheese round on salad, and 3 olives stuffed with blue cheese) Had a tougher day the next day but think this was the problem: Cantaloupe with last day breakfast at school. Hungary day but ate on plan with an extra snack. Getting the hang of "off for the summer" and OP life style mixed with more exercise. Will try to adjust :D

No scale as I used to weigh at work so will shop for one.

Hi - Haven't been officially planning recently but I wanted to say thanks to those of you who pointed out that cereal + soy milk + fruit = starving the rest of the day. Funny how that works. I hadn't had cereal for a while and now I know why! I'll be back to the planning thread next week...

06-19-2010, 08:39 AM
Natalia - were you still trying to stick to SB priniciples? You didn't have any veggies until supper...that may be in part why you're not losing? (and is zone bar "legal"?)

06-19-2010, 06:54 PM
Twynn, I don't know. I mean, most days I have veggies for lunch, supper and snack so I don't think that's why I'm not losing. Not sure if the zone bars are 100% phase 2 legal but they have no HFCS and so convenient; I am really turned off by all other "protein" bars , the texture is so hard to swallow. I'm really thinking it's the calories- hey it's possible to even overeat dairy, beans etc. I'm going to calorie count along with SBD this week and if still nothing, I will ditch the zone bars and try that :)

B- bite size shredded wheat, 1% milk
s- zone bar (at the beach)
s- carrots, sugar snap peas, sf pudding cup, coffee
S- BBQ chicken breast and low starch veggies

06-19-2010, 07:22 PM
OK, I just compared both boxes. SBD chocolate PB bars, and zone perfect bars.
Both have 15g protein
Each is within 1g fat content (SB bar 6g, Zone bar 7g)
Both have 21g carbs
Unfortunately the zone box dosn't give breakdown ie fiber, sugar, etc.
There is some fiber as I can see oat bran etc.
The biggest difference I can see is that the SB bars have sugar alcohols ,
and the zone bars use glucose-fructose (sugar) and no suagr alcohols. From what I've read a long time ago, sugar alcohols are partially absorbed as carbs, but n ot fully. So, in fact, the realized carb content of the SB bars may be slightly less.
The small amount of glucose /fructose in the zone bars does not make me crave; it's extremely filling and satisfying. I really hope they don't end up being what's giving me the stall as I have a trip to Toronto planned along with a conference and they would be so handy on the trip!!! But like I say, I am doing a personal experiment this week; if the scale still refuses to budge, I WILL cut them out next week to see what happens!

06-20-2010, 12:44 PM
Update: down 2lbs! wooooo-hooo! So I am going to continue to watch calories along with SBD principles and see what happens. Hopefully I`ll continue this downward trend :)
