Cat, I really like your style of eating without the big meal in the evenings. I've been trying to mimic that the past few days and find that I sleep SO much better and wake up more refreshed. i like the idea of having 3-4 meals instead of a set breakfast, lunch and dinner. I'm going to test it out for another few weeks and see how it goes.

still battling the bloat this morning -- but TOM is here...that explains it.
--

1: smoothie (spinach, berries, banana, whey, greens powder, chia seed, almond milk)
workout
2: sauteed kale and white beans with poached egg,
3: greek yogurt, tomatoes, zucchini
4: almonds

lots of water

exercise: at least 60 minutes cardio

BellaLucia
07-26-2010, 12:04 PM
Hey Beth, it's a stage between 1/2. It's called 1.5 because u are slowly transitioning into stage 2!

Mel, are you on P1.5?

Yep. I ended Phase 1 about 2 weeks ago, and have been slowly trying to transition into Phase 1.5 and then 2, because I fear if I overdo it or rush into it, it may lead to cravings.

***************************
Woke up with big headache, no breakfast for me. Got my butt in gear with some Advil just in time for lunch.

L- Chicken caesar salad- huge bed of romaine, chicken breast, parmesan, and caesar dressing.

S- Apple with SF natural PB

D- Tacos made with lean ground turkey, seasonings, lettuce, tomato, salsa, RF sour cream, FF cheese, on a whole wheat flat-out wrap. May have some on top of salad also.

S- FF organic Greek yogurt with vanilla and splenda

SF fudgesicle or small bunch of grapes

Omg thanks to everybody for being such a motivation. I am on day 10, phase 1 and i just wanna start phase 2 tomorrow or something. I am trying to be patient tho, if others can do it, so can i right? I don't know how much weight I have lost, I feel like it is not much. I am doing my sugar free tho, only few days left, then planning on having carrots and beetroot salad one day and boiled barley another day, is that ok?

07-26-2010, 04:32 PM
continue with the full 2 weeks of phase 1. you're so close, it's worth going the rest of the 4 days.

have you posted any menus in here? the book gives you a ton of information about the transition between phase 1 and phase 2, but here (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/sbd-frequently-asked-questions/83406-whats-your-p2-combo.html), here (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/sbd-frequently-asked-questions/141379-phase-ii-food-list-revised-may-2008-a.html), and here (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/sbd-frequently-asked-questions/59321-emergency-handbook-phase-2-a.html) are some threads that may help in your transition. If you don't have the book, the FAQ section here is your next best resource.

The weekend was weird. No planning Saturday which meant OFF plan. A little. But not too bad, considering... Yesterday wasn't so bad either, so I guess I am slowly getting better even when I am not OP.

Phase 2

Pre-workout - decaf green/white tea
B&L - after *canceled* yoga class, got a burrito. Not even off plan - whole wheat tortilla with whole pinto beans, scrambled eggs, salsa and very little cheese - but not really what I would have planned for
S - carrots/celery with hummus, 1/2 a grapefruit with some cottage cheese
D - giant green salad, steamed broccoli, grilled tofu, sliced tomatoes
dessert - nonfat Greek yogurt with wild blueberries

Calories: 1220 (WOW, surprising after my ~600-cal burrito this morning), 21 g fiber, 39% carbs, 35% fat, 29% protein.

I don't even want my SF fudgesicle now. Today instead of my apple PB snack, I had FF greek yogurt with red grapes (with a little vanilla flavoring and splenda). Oh my god, it was sweet enough for me... the grapes... it was perfect. It was like a delicious, yet healthy little parfait or something like that in a bowl. That will be my dessert tomorrow. It's making me very happy that I can have something like that for dessert. It shows my tastes are changing. Yay!

I'm about to now have my apple and peanut butter snack for dessert rather than the SF fudgesicle as I enjoy some television before bed.

I am on day 11 today, managed to get through the day yesterday. I had massive fear last night that I was going to put on all my lost weight back on and I just was consumed by that fear. I can't put 10 pounds on just like that. I know that for every pound I have got in exess I have overaten and eating high calorie food. It didn't just end up on me as a miracle. I stuffed myself with food on full stomach and this is how I put on the weight.

Then I looked at all my new positive behaviours - I don't have sugar in my tea, I eat normal portions, I even eat meat, I was vegeterian before and that mean high carb. I am not eating before bed - I have tea instead. All that I have achieved over the past two months and I would like to keep it that way and I strongly believe that I am not going to act like I did in my binge-eating days. I also pick up the phone to share my emotions instead of eating on them.

So here I am today, realising that I am demotivated to carry on because I am too strict, I really think I am. I haven't had anything sweet, not even splenda and I haven't made effort to eat my fav food - chicken salad, salmon with asparagus, aubergine with tomato and mozarella. I really can't wait to have smoked salmon with soft cheese on wholegrain bread or a portion of fruit. I really have been focusing on everything I can't eat than the things i can eat!

I am going shopping tonight!

I do have curry today and I like that so it should be good. But I do need to treat myself, otherwise I feel miserable. I think I am going to try the canellini beans muffins as well and see what happens.

Wishing a successful day to everyone! btw can checking my weight be a motivator? I haven't checked it in a week.

Hope For Recovery,
I find that it can be. The first time I tried the south beach, I lost 2 pounds over a week, and although that's pretty good, it was disappointing to me. Now I restarted Phase 1 and have lost 3 pounds in three days. That's motivation for me, but it depends on how you react to numbers. It's your choice, but in the end it's really about how you feel. :hug:

I hope I can join in here on this thread. Today is Day 1 of Phase 1 for me. I've joined the SBD website to keep up with things and to use the tools. I have been trying different low carb diets since I was recently diagnosed with diabetes. BS numbers were not dangerously hi, but my tryglicerides were pretty hi. My doctor was pleased when I told him I was going to follow SBD and said that it should help bring the tryglicerides down to normal. I am glad to be here.

Hope for Recovery, I'm sure you could have those favorite foods of yours with no problem! They sound pretty on-plan to me. You've done great, you should treat yourself to a nice treat made with Splenda or something. There are plenty of awesome recipes in the Desserts forum.

Thank you Jlyne327! I am in a much better place today and I thought I would share it! I don't have a scale but I can feel myself being tonned and losing it! And I do wanna do it for myself, to be well, to feel happy and relieved from that horrible weight. Also the last few pounds are the most exiting for me because they show bigger difference. I am not having eggs today. I had veg curry with chicken leg and yoghurt for breakfast and I am having chicken salads today :) I will do it, I will do the whole thing for the two weeks and then maybe think about wholemeal bread :)) Thank you for the support!

pattygirl, welcome, well done for making the effort to do this! For me it has been really worth it, just the fact that I live on food which does not make me have cravings and i am eating healthy meals that leave me full and happy and i am losing weight on top on that. I thought to myself today that even if I wasn't mentaly trying to lose weight, the weight wa going to come off as a consequence of my eating. I have changed my eating habits so much over the past few months that i feel pretty positive that i am going to maintain my recovery and i am going to be well with my food!

I can just feel that i am losing it and my tummy has actual shape now, which is different than the blob like thing i used to have. Omg I love it and I thought I would share it with you!

I have lost 4 pounds for the past 12 days! I couldn't wait to share my happiness with you! I do worry that some of it is muscle as I find it hard to exercise these days! But I know there is fat in there and I just love the relief. What a great relief! I absolutely love it! Thank you so much for the support chicks! I am so happy that I went through this! Now slowly but surely eating carrots over the weekend, it is my welcome of the next phase.

Hey EmmaD?:) I hate to be a pain in the butt but last year I was told on the forum that Subway's whole wheat isn't really whole wheat! It was right after I had enjoyed a sub, too. I was glad to find out that info. They do have the option to turn a sub into a salad for like $5 or so though. Last time I went I had chicken breast and all of the veggies over the spinach leaves with ranch.


*******************
Was up and on the go early this morning with my mom and sister, (I actually got along with my sister!) and never got a chance to grab breakfast. Mom wanted to treat us to KFC's buffet, and I was a bit horrified. The thought of finding anything OP in there seemed a very grim possibility. Not to mention, even if I wasn't trying to change my eating habits, I'd still never want to eat at their buffet. Most of the stuff in there looked totally gross but I found a few things to eat. So I had:

L- Spicy cabbage, grilled chicken breast, lima beans, cottage cheese. Then some sort of mess with tomatoes, peas, and carrots. I picked out the peas. Yuck. I actually had to scrape off the chicken breast's outside, 'cause it tasted sweetish and barbeque saucey, even though it didn't look like it had anything on it. I didn't finish the chicken but I did go back for seconds on the cabbage.

I was able to resist the biscuits ( I always loved biscuits previously, a nice treat) with NO problem whatsoever. And not a single fried chicken morsel touched these lips either. Also the more 'palatable' items on the menu, the puddings and whatnot, I resisted without any trouble at all. I must surely be kicking the junk food habit.

D- leftover turkey breast, "gravy", greens, whole wheat macaroni with garlic and smart balance

D- Gonna heat up a can of greens, still a bit hungry since I only have eaten twice today. Will probably follow that up with some FF cottage cheese and a small apple with PB.

Kind of a "weird" day...waited for my husband to get up (his weekend starts today) before I made smoothies...so we didn't really start eating till 10, so the day is a bit "off"

1.Smoothie: kale, spinach, green powder, ginger, chia gel, vanilla powder, hemp protein, mixed berries and more blueberries added, coconut milk
2. Went out for lunch around 2:30..sat on the river watching the boats go by..it was great. I had a big seafood salad with creole tomato dressing and one bite of my husband's oyster poboy.
3. Not too hungry for "dinner" 4 hours after lunch, so we just had a snack while watching Big Brother of spelt crackers with humas and guacamole.

weird eating day!!

zeffryn
07-29-2010, 11:52 PM
had an odd day today too...it didn't really turn out as planned. some funding fell through for a function that is TOMORROW night, so i spent the entire day chasing down new stuff and trying to reallocate funds in the budget (which included taking money out of my own pocket) to get the job finished. it also included an impromptu conference call -- which I didn't realize I had forgotten to put on a bra until midway through (classy!). have i mentioned that i love volunteer work? argh.

anyway:

b: orange on the go, cottage cheese cup
l: chocolate cheesecake smoothie (my stomach was really upset for some reason)
d: "guiltless" pizza - sugar free, whole wheat crust, vegetarian cheese, sugar free sauce, tomatoes, chicken, herbs, artichokes. super yum.

not a great day foodwise, but i did get my exercise in.

Sad news, but somehow I am not surprised. The roll only has 4 g of fiber and it does taste kinda sweet... I guess I was in denial :p since it is one of my standby's when I am on the road without my "stash" and want something as unprocessed as possible. I wanted to believe - hahaha

Zeff, it turned out great...almost like a "thick" pancake. I drizzled a little honey over it. Husband liked it too. Putting our smoothies off till later..another weird schedule eating day looms.

Fast food places are masters at luring us healthy consumers in with promises of 'health food' added to their menu! Don't feel bad, Emma! :-)

B- 2 eggs cooked in smart balance, cheese, on whole wheat flatout wrap

D- lean ham and RF provolone whole wheat sandwich with tons of veggies (I'm about to try out Kraft's new garlic herb mayo!!)

D- I'm about to make a whole wheat sugar free cake.... wish me luck.

No lunch... I've been superbusy today packing stuff, but perhaps will have some cottage cheese and apples in the evening. Maybe some of my cake if that turns out well.
