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 just have to share this delectable new concoction I came up with today. I'm glad there's a new thread now cause I didn't want to keep posting in the other one and clogging it up lol!!! Okay so I had listed my snack as celery with PB and some FF greek yogurt. Instead I ate a few celery sticks for crunch, then I took the rest of my FF greek yogurt (probably about 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup? something like that) and mixed in 2 tablespoons of SF natural PB, a little cocoa, and a little splenda.

Oh my GOD. Best thing EVER. It was more peanut buttery than chocolate. I am so loving greek yogurt.. you can make the most healthiest sweet snacks with it.

For my dinner I've made my own dressing for my big salad, I mixed in a tablespoon of sesame oil, with some rice vinegar, splash cayenne sauce, tablespoon lemon juice, garlic, a little salt, a teaspoon of Thai fish sauce for a yummy Asian dressing. The flavor sesame oil gives to things is soooo awesome.

Chicks, I am sooooooo off plan it is unbelievable I have no diet in place, I really cannot control my food. I haven't binged eaten coz then I would just get depressed but I am not following the 1.5 phase and I think I have put some phase 1 lost weight back. I went camping over the weekend and this is what I have had for the past 2 day:


B - pear and nuts
S - pear and nuts
L - jacket potato with bolognese
D - fish and veg

B - Bacon sandwich (yes, two slices of bread) and an apple
L - a slice of cake
S - an apple
D - to be confirmed but I am home and I shall have veg and meat.

I feel extremely happy that I can eat a slice of cake and not crave any more and I feel happy to be free about what i eat, instead of picky but I know I need to get back on plan or stay on a plan that will allow me to not put on any more weight. That is literary all I want, even if I stop losing, I don't want to be gaining.

08-09-2010, 01:37 PM
Hope, I hope you can get back on the bus now!

S - nut butter boats! I'd forgotten about them! (natural peanut butter in celery sticks)
L - grilled sirloin burger and salad

Phase 2 but this is more like a Phase 1 day because my 1 serving of grain yesterday left me a bit bloaty. Will have fruit however.

B- Coffee with some nonfat dry milk.
3/4 cup northern beans over 1 3/4 cup turnip greens. Seasoned with garlic and 2 teaspoons smart balance.

L- Big leafy salad with romaine, tomato, green pepper, sesame-oil/rice vinegar dressing.
Can tuna.

S- 1/2 cup FF cottage cheese with flax and small chopped apple.
FF milk as beverage.

D- Modified Crack Slaw recipe with chopped shrimp and lean ground pork. Going to stirfry cabbage and carrots & onions (and one beaten egg) in sesame oil, rice vinegar, garlic and fish sauce for an inside-out egg roll. (only not really inside out, it'll be more like a big healthy stir fry of egg roll stuffing if that makes sense!)

Looking forward to this meal SO much. Serving over brown rice for my husband and son, but I'm refraining from the brown rice. It's a problem area for me!

************ EDIT

I just did Jillian Michael's 30 day shred... I'm almost diiiiied but I made it through. I can barely breathe, I just collasped into this chair. Check ya chicks later! :)

Edit: Post workout snack was 2 tablespoons natural sf peanut butter and lots of fresh spring water. So I'm not going to have the flax seed with my cottage cheese. (I edit my posts repeatedly to keep accountability to myself, I find it helps me immensely. ) :)

UM- DINNER=FAIL! lol, my veggie burgers tasted good but didn't look so hot, I may try to make them into mock meatloaf or something tomorrow... and I made the Hobbit Shire Soup that Linda posted(That I love!) and I used capers instead of the wine vinegar I normally do and boy oh boy I must not like capers! DH said "why would people eat those?! they don't taste like food!" lol... I got tired of trying to pick around them and missing some that I just threw the whole batch out... :( It reminded me of how much I like that soup though so I will probably making some more very soon sans capers. Guess all this kept me from overeating tonight!

Also- why is it so hard to find unsweetened cranberries dried or frozen?! I did manage to find some 100% not from concentrate cranberry juice that I am using in my water... Love that idea MMC, Thanks!

08-11-2010, 04:19 PM
SnackieJackie, oh Phase 2, skipping snacks should be a no biggie; I would think if you don't feel hungry, then no need to snack. But for a pick-me-up between meals, healthy snacks are great. As long as you're eating regular meals and whatnot and getting a full balance of SBD allowed foods in, there should be no reason why you couldn't skip a snack if you truly don't feel hungry. Since you feel full, your body is telling you you don't need it because you're not hungry so no need to force down some extra calories. :) Yum, brussel sprouts! I need to get some. They're so substantial and filling, even my son likes 'em!

I was at the college all day long for registration... thankfully before I left I fueled up on a turkey/swiss/lettuce/mayo whole wheat wrap sandwich. It really get me sated for quite awhile. I did start getting hungry though and I looked at their snack machine. Not a pack of nuts to be found, only junk so I got diet pepsi from an adjacent machine and walked away.

They were giving away tons of free pizza from our local delicious pizzeria (italian NY style), to feed us since we had to wait so long, and I managed to resist it with no trouble. (And I LOOOVE NY pizza!) Yay!! Came home and ate the remains of the Pork Shrimp crack slaw.

B- Turkey/swiss/lettuce/mayo on whole wheat wrap
L- skipped and should have packed something, but did resist the college's free food
D- leftover plate of pork shrimp crack slaw, a few rosemary/olive oil triscuits.

Thinking about cracking open an easy can of greens, with a little vinegar. Gonna have some yogurt and peanutbutter afterwards. Tomorrow will be a more balanced day.

****Edit: Sorry about the double posting guys, I posted about 5 hours ago the first time and this time around I didn't check or notice, I apologize for that. :)

08-11-2010, 09:27 PM
I thought yogurt was a food to avoid in phase 1. Am I wrong? I sure would like to include yogurt during these 2 weeks.

08-11-2010, 09:40 PM
Check out the updated food list ( for phase 1. Dairy is allowed and encouraged in Phase 1.

Except for half and half, 2 cups allowed daily, including nonfat yogurt or lowfat plain yogurt
Greek Yogurt nonfat
Low-fat milk (fat-free and 1%)
Fat-free 1/2 & 1/2 (2 tablespoons)
Low-fat plain, vanilla, or artificially sweetened soy milk (4 grams of fat or less per 8 ounce serving). Be sure the product does not contain high fructose corn syrup
1% or fat-free buttermilk
yogurt low fat or nonfat plain"

Do you have an old version of the book? Dr. A has updated some of the foods since the first addition.

and :welcome3:

08-11-2010, 09:40 PM
This is my third day on sb phase 1 and I'm doing ok. I struggle with the soda cravings mainly because it's hot outside and I want something carbonated and cold. I'm going to get some Perrie or something like that to hit the spot. Any suggestions? I don't like diet drinks too much.

Hi Chicks,

it is my day two of being back on the plan, I went to gym yesterday and felt heavy and flabby, weighted myself and i was a pound or so more. I need to face my consequences but I am happy that i am back on plan a bit quicker than before. Previously, it used to take me at least a month of binging to feel like i have had enough. Now I know I have had enough over the past week and i am back on eggs for breakfast and chilli con carne. I do eat a bit of fruit and bread, I am trying to add it back to my diet even if that means i stop losing because i am going on holiday in 3 weeks and i need to be eating everything by then, otherwise i set myself for another up the scale.

Good luck all!

These past 2 days have been super carby, even though whole-grain of course. Made way too much WW spaghetti and plan on finishing that off today, and tomorrow planning the next couple of days to be a few Phase 1 days to make sure the WW spaghetti doesn't set off crazy cravings and imbalances. I am afraid of carbs in pastas and rices and breads, even WW ones.

L- chipotle tuna, on ww wrap, topped w/ RF provolone, tomato, onion, romaine.
D- ww spaghetti with tons of spinach, tomato, herbs & garlic
Skim mozzarella and parmesan.

parmesan. Coffee with FF milk.

S- RF cheddar chunk & FF milk

D- leftover spaghetti with spinach, tomatoes, herbs and garlic, w/ parmesan.
Salad. -- Change of plans, might be going out towards Walmart tonight to pick up school supplies so may grab a salad with grilled chicken instead and just eat up the rest of the spaghetti tomorrow. Or... hmm, I could freeze the leftover spaghetti for a later meal.

S- FF yogurt and PB

08-14-2010, 02:48 PM
