Since we have lots of new beachers, I thought I'd revive the description of this thread. It's not just for menus, although it's where they are always posted. Questions and SBD observations are always welcome!

It's time for a new week of talking On-Plan!

* Anyone, from any phase (1, 1.5, 2, 3, etc.) can post, and those who are new to 3FC are especially encouraged to do so!
* This thread is for questions, sharing advice and strategies, and encouraging each other to stay on plan. It is not for chatting about daily life unrelated to this topic. Members have indicated that they would like to have chatting remain in the Daily Thread, so any posts that are off topic or chatty will be moved by the mods to the Daily.
* Because people from different parts of the plan are posting here, it'll help everyone if you indicate what phase you're in when you post. Thanks!
* While you may certainly find, from time to time, the need to ask for help after going off plan, remember that this thread is about staying on plan. When you share details of off plan foods you've eaten, it can upset, tempt, and otherwise frustrate other members, so please keep these details to a minimum.

So, share with us: How are you staying on plan this week?

I've done my 6 weeks of 'taking it easy and just maintaining' while I was grieving and on the road so much. The 6 weeks ends today, so I'm going back to a solid phase 2. I'm below my original goal and happy with how I look and feel, but still overweight according to the charts. I'm happy enough on phase 2 so I'm going to stay faithful to the plan and see what happens. :lol:

S: yogurt, with blueberries and Ezekiel 4:9 cereal
L: grilled chicken, cukes & tomato, steamed summer squash
S: almonds or pistachios and iced tea
D: roasted chicken, broccoli salad, bean salad (and whole grain bread for DH, not sure if I'll have a slice or not)
And a milky beverage in the evening

Exercising when it's hot and humid is a challenge for me, but I walked early, did some yardwork and I'm off to work in my classroom for a few hours. I'm hoping to talk DH into kayaking this evening, but if not I guess I'll crank up the fan and hit the wii fit for a while this evening. :)

phase 1
hey ladies, i'm new to the site and also to the south beach diet. i joined because in the book it says it's always good to have some support and accountability and since i've bailed on everything other diet, i thought it was a good plan. so here i am. i've been in phase one for the past three days and it's going well. i just find that i have a hard time getting enough veggies in. does anyone have any suggestions for veggies on the go? i'd really appreciate it. also, i've been seeing that a lot of people are eating the burgers without the bun, is this ok for phase one? if it is, i'm game cause i wait tables at a strictly burger joint and it's been extremely hard not eating a thing while i'm there for six hours.

07-01-2010, 05:41 AM
I'm in Phase 2. I'm going to break it down by meal number instead of breakfast/lunch/dinner b/c I'm a nightshift person and would just confuse everybody.

1st meal - Fried brown rice and chicken stir fry (made w/ SB teriyaki sauce).
Snack - 1 wedge of laughing cow cheese and 8 triscuits
2nd meal - Bowl of reduced sodium chicken noodle soup (skipping the noodle part, however)
Snack - Sugar free popsicle

I know I should be eating a 3rd meal, but I just now got used to eating 2 meals and 2 snacks...working on the 3rd meal soon, I promise. :)

When I get off work (in less than an hour) I will be heading to the gym to walk a mile or so on the treadmill and then see if I can bump up my devil machine time to 7 minutes plus cooldown.

:welcome: to both CaliforniaMelanie and kirby28oconnell!

CaliforniaMelanie, from the menu you posted, it looks like you're not getting enough veggies, and your calories are way too low for the day, too. Make sure you're getting at least 4 1/2 cups of veggies each day, and try to get your calories up to at least 1200 in order to keep a balanced, healthy diet.

kirby28oconnell, here are a few ideas for veggies-on-the-go -
a big veggie filled salad
raw veggies w/hummus
lean, lowfat deli luncheon meat or cheese wrapped around a celery stick
cherry tomatoes & string cheese
celery stuffed with peanut butter or Laughing Cow cheese

You are allowed to enjoy a burger without the bun on Phase 1, but the burger should be made with lean ground beef or turkey, and no fillers. But you can top it with a big slice of tomato and onion and wrap it in lettuce leaves. :)

Notes to myself and any New Beacher who reads this and gets the wrong idea of what an OP SBD day looks like:

Ph 1-

B- 3 eggs scrambled, v8 juice
s- Cocoa roasted almonds
L- Salad from Subway with oven roasted chicken breast, spinach leaves (instead of lettuce), tomato, onion, banana peppers, pickles, green peppers, black olives, and ranch dressing.

(Realized later, black olives is technically a fat so I should have left those off perhaps, but I think it will be okay.)

S- whole sliced cucumber with garlic hummus

D- chicken salad with lots of celery, onion, and pickle, and mayo, on romaine lettuce hearts

Dessert: Lowfat, SF cheesecake

After dessert snack: I was having really bad cravings for some of the junk food my husband has around the house, so I opened up a can of green beans and ate the entire can to add some more veggies to my day (3.5 servings to be exact) and to quell the cravings to munch.

Got an hour of walking going through the mall, and although was tempted by $5 Chinese plates (right next to Subway), I stuck to my guns and had my salad (and it was delicious!)

Notes to myself for today: Glad I got more veggies in today so I'm proud of that. Realized I did not have any dairy today nor any cheese, so maybe some fat free milk would have helped quell my cravings if I had some with the green beans. In fact, going to have a cup or so before bed.
