South Beach Diet - On Plan Thread: January 3rd to 9th 2011

01-03-2011, 09:53 AM
Almost put 2010 in the title... Welcome to 2011 everyone!

It's time for a new week of talking On-Plan! This is the place for South Beach meal plan and food support, encouragement and questions.

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.

People in different phases of South Beach post here so it will 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?

01-04-2011, 12:38 AM
Tomorrow will be my first day in P1 at work...which means stress and emotions. I have my lunch packed perfectly as well as snack and an "emergency" stash for my desk.

I only on day 3 of P1 and so far it has been at home and very manageable. My only downfall is too much peanut butter. I know that is weakness and I have to watch it!!! But I am ready to face the real world.

01-04-2011, 01:09 AM
I'm fighting temptation tonight, that's why I'm here! I am delaying by writing, and maybe when I'm done I'll be able to actually say NO MORE FOOD THIS EVENING. Right now the best I can say is . . . write for a little while first and see how you feel after that.

OK, I lost 5 pounds before the holidays and actually enjoyed the process. Then I went off SB when I went to visit my parents for 12 days, although I didn't go crazy with sweets or anything. Now I don't want to even weigh myself until I have a week back on plan.

Today is Day 1 of Phase 1, and it wasn't quite perfect.

B: 2 eggs w/spinach, coffee
S: coffee
S: mozzarella stick, small V8
L: large salad (lots of veggies, vinaigrette, garbanzo beans, salami, chicken), Greek Yogurt with two chopped prunes for sweetener (yes, that's cheating because it is fruit on Phase 1), about 8 raw pecans
S: another mozzarella stick
D: one and a half andouille sausages (with lots of peppers, onions, grated carrots and celery sauteed in chicken broth), Greek yogurt with about a half teaspoon of lemon curd for sweetener (Cheating again with fruit! Small, yet still cheating.)
S: a handful of salted peanuts

OK, tomorrow can be a little better. I already made the salad I can take for lunch. Now that I wrote this I think I can be satisfied with a cup of peppermint tea and no more food for today.

Good luck to all of us!

01-05-2011, 08:14 PM
Phase 1.5 (no grains)

Cabbage beef is in the crockpot for dinner and smells so good. Gosh, the recipe makes a lot so will have to freeze some.

I have a question about plain greek yogurt. Since starting to eat it, I've found so many different brands and a huge difference in the amount of fat and sugar grams in addition to thickness and taste. So far my favorite is Chobani but I believe I've also heard someone mention Fage or Oikos. Any feedback about your favorite and why would be appreciated.

01-05-2011, 08:37 PM
Phase 2

B. oats soaked in unsweetened almond milk w/chopped peaches & strawberries
L. veggie salad w/chickpeas, feta and 1/2 avocado, 1/2 apple
S. 1 piece string cheese
D. Sauteed chickpeas, tomatoes & spinach with garlic & onions

01-05-2011, 08:42 PM
TallandThin, I really like Fage and Trader Joe's brand of nonfat Greek yogurt. They are both nice and thick and creamy, with a mild tang. I like them so well that I eat them plain.
I remember looking at other brands of Greek yogurt, and I'm pretty sure that they were higher in calories, although I could be wrong. But I know there was some reason that I didn't buy them.

I use either Oikos or Trader Joes. Both are cheaper than the Fage brand. The calories are only a difference of 10 & the sugar in it is lactose, so I wouldn't be concerned. The protein gms. are virtually the same and both that I buy are fat free.

S: Greek salad with chicken breast
Sn: sf jello
Vitamin? Yep!
Omega-3s? Yep!
Thoughts: I'd feel worse about my out of control afternoon snack, but today was filled with temptations, and I think I did rather well. To start off with, during morning rounds, there were homemade date squares that everyone was raving about. I just kept saying to myself that it's easier to just stay on plan than to try and get back on it after cheating. Then, when I went back to the Health Sciences Centre I ran into my bf, who needed to get lunch. I'd already eaten mine. I accompanied him to the caf and just sat and chatted while he ate. Old me would have just eaten a second lunch!

Jan 7 (P1, D7)
Wt: 175.0
B: Even more rushed than yesterday... chowed down the leftover greek salad from yesterday!
Sn: Laughing cow wedge
L: Leftover fat-free ham, broccoli & cauliflower, and veggies with ranch dip .
Sn: Skipped
S: Turkey, bean, and veggie soup x 2 bowls
Sn: Fake brownie
Vitamin? Yep
Omega-3s? Yep.
Thoughts: Woke up with a sore throat this morning, and I'm getting more and more stuffed up as the day drags on. I'm really hoping to get to the gym after work, with the thought that I'll probably feel even worse in the coming days. If I'm feeling pretty bulldozed by the time I get home, though, I'll just take it easy.
Added.. made it home. Sick. Taking it easy.
I brought my lunch today, but bought veggies and dip from the cafeteria to supplement it. I think I might have inadvertently eaten a carrot stick, and the dip might not have been entirely OP, but I'm not worrying about it. I think I'm starting the mental transition to phase two. Going to reread the phase 2 part of the book over the next week so I'm totally ready for it!

01-06-2011, 05:20 PM
Phase 1 day 4:

S: pistachios and iced tea
D: Veggie soup and lf cheese
S: 2 pieces of sugar-free cinnamon hard candy
All Day: LOTS of water...but I didn't want my 2nd cup of coffee this morning. In fact I didn't even finish my first!

01-06-2011, 06:54 PM
Amy, yes, what I referred to as cabbage beef is actually listed under Soups and Stews - phase one as cabbage beef soup. I thought it was very good but be aware that it makes quite a bit, in fact barely fit into my large crockpot.

Also, thanks for all the feedback on plain yogurt. It sounds like I've found the best of the best.
