South Beach Diet - On Plan Thread - 1/15- 1/22

View Full Version : On Plan Thread - 1/15- 1/22

01-15-2011, 10:02 AM
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?

I've started to tracking my calories since starting phase 2 to make sure I don't go overboard, and I'm realizing how few I'm eating. Saturday was 609, Sunday was 702, and today is on track to be between ~750. I'm very uncomfortable with how low this is -- I really don't want to send my body into starvation mode -- but how do I get in more calories? (I can't believe I'm even having to ask this! ME!).

I don't want to add in more carbs before I'm ready. I'm really realizing that the bulk of my overeating was done on starches in the past. If I can't have them, I don't really care much to eat anything else!

01-17-2011, 07:29 PM

01-18-2011, 11:29 AM
If any of you ladies counting calories are using "my fitness pal" to do it, send me a PM with your username and I'll add you as a friend!

Sent bf for groceries yesterday. He bought rootbeer and chicken breasts :dz:
B: 2 cheese sticks and v8
L: 1/2 a grilled [fat-free] ham and [fat-free] cheese sandwich on whole wheat bread. 1/2 dill pickle. A container of mixed vegetable sticks and about 1tbsp dip.
Sn: Almonds
S: Cheat meal! *Censored*

Since my calories have been so low, and I don't have any groceries anyway, I'm arranging a cheat meal for dinner tonight. Hopefully that will keep my metabolism going.

Edited to add: Wt today was 170.0lbs. This is a bit rapid for my liking (9lbs in 2wks & 3 days). I know I'll complain when things don't go this fast in the future, but, for my own good, I've gotta slow this loss down a bit.

01-18-2011, 11:45 AM
Sent bf for groceries yesterday. He bought rootbeer and chicken breasts


I'm drooling over your censored meal, but my calories have been plenty high - so I'll just live vicariously through you for now :smoking:

01-18-2011, 12:47 PM

01-18-2011, 02:16 PM
lol @ the rootbeer and chicken. I rarely let DH out to the supermarket on his own. There's a famous story I still tell about when I sent him to Sam's for laundry detergent and he came back with $300 of telephone for the house.


I count calories, I have to. I need that sense of control about what I'm eating. Also, it makes me accountable as I am an impulse and emotional eater. If I get a craving, I'll most of the time give in to it. If I have to log what I am eating, it helps me not give in to the cravings.

Had an enjoyable cheat meal last night, but made sure we ordered only enough for one satisfying meal so there'd be no leftovers... this way we don't make it a multi-day cheat:ink:. Yesterdays caloric total was 1700. I was actually expecting it to wind up much, much worse. In any case, it was a much needed bump to my calorie intake. I want to lose weight, but not at the expense of my metabolism!

Did have a pre-breakfast oops though: 1/2 a hot chocolate. I'd been waiting outside the infiniti dealership in -30C. :brr: When they opened, they handed me a hot chocolate as a walked in (what service -- would've been nicer if they'd just opened the doors a little earlier!), and I chugged 1/2 of it before it clicked it was a no-no! :devil:
B: half a fried egg, cheese, bacon sandwich on w/w bread. Diet Pepsi Lime :D
Sn: V8
L: Greek salad with chicken. Probably. There's also a chicken and white bean soup on in the caf, so I might get that instead if they haven't added noodles or other crap to it.
S: Chicken breast stuffed with spinach, mozza, and ?sundried tomato. Green beans. I might grill some roma tomatoes too if I'm not too lazy.

Weight today was 169.8! 160s! :broc: Without a "bathroom celebration" too :lol:

I'm doing alright for cravings so far, at day 5 of phase 2. Even at last night's cheat, I wasn't just inhaling the calories the way I usually do. The real test will be today. After last night's refined carbs, and the hot chocolate earlier this morning, I'll have to be acutely aware of my hunger cues. I think the key is to not satisfy cravings triggered by sugar with more sugar to prevent the cycle from starting again.

I've been really bad at taking my vitamin and omega-3 supplement. I don't know why taking two measly pills is so hard for me to do on a daily basis. I know I need them. I'm Canadian, so I'm probably already vitamin D deficient :p And without the grains for two weeks, and with my limited servings now, I'm definitely well on my way to a multi-vitamin deficiency.

01-19-2011, 12:45 PM

New discovery: coconut milk. my son can't have dairy and the store I stopped at was out of almond milk so I picked up coconut milk. It's sweetened, though I have seen unsweetened varieties (and I think they were just out of stock on that) but it is SO SOSOSOSOSOSOOOSOSOSOSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo super good.

01-20-2011, 07:15 AM

MMC - it has the same nutrition stats as a cup of the light canned stuff, so I would assume it is similar. we regularly eat coconut milk yogurt - which is awesome too.

Picked up the Skinny Bi*ch Ultimate Everyday Cookbook last night. Oh my. DROOL! It could very easily be incorporated into South Beach -- there are a few recipes that use regular all-purpose flour, but that could easily be exchanged for either whole wheat or whole wheat pastry flour. 90% of the recipes on my menu plan for the next week are from that cookbook. I'll report back with reviews.

1: smoothie (1/2 c. plain ff yogurt, 1/2 c. skim milk, frozen blueberries, 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder)
2: mexican chicken soup, 1/2 apple, 1 c. skim milk
3: snack tbd
4: late workout so I think I will just have a green protein smoothie and maybe a small salad

exercise: 45 min. pilates, 45 min. zumba

01-20-2011, 12:00 PM
Day 4, Phase 1

No workout today, rest day.
Breakfast - 2oz canadian bacon, 2 dry fried eggs, coffee latte with 1% milk
AM Snack - light string cheese
Lunch - oh dear. I'm on campus between classes and no time to go home for lunch, so it's the cafeteria :mad:. I'm hoping and praying there is some kind of soup or salad on offer, otherwise it's probably a chicken quesadilla which throws me off for phase 1. Oh well, it's only 1 meal.
PM Snack - celery and laughing cow light cheese triangle.
Dinner - taco bake leftovers mmmm, squash. Strawberry sugar free jello for pudding.

01-20-2011, 12:37 PM

Coming to you from Edmonton this morning. Tomorrow is my first interview. Wish me luck!

B: Continental b-fast was included with my room, avoided the danishes, bagels, and toast. Phew. Had ~1/2 cup of oatmeal with 1tsbp of walnuts and 3 dried apricots. Also a half cup or so of fruity yogurt, which i'm pretty sure was sweetened with sugar. Oh well. Also swiped a little packet of pb to eat to for a snack later.

Unsure at this point. I'd like to find a really nice salad for one of them, though. Then I think I'm going to have to go to one of my favorite restaurants, La Creperie for the other meal.

I'm making the coconut banana french toast out of Skinny B*tch Ultimate Everyday Cookbook this morning for the family. It's perfectly phase 2 appropriate - with the exception of the evaporated cane sugar, but that can be swapped with splenda.

I'm having french toast scrambled eggs because when I have days off from the gym, I make sure to have a phase 1 day foodwise.

1: french toast scrambled eggs
2: tuna and chickpea salad, mixed greens
3: cucumbers and cottage cheese
4: kale salad with thai peanut dressing

Banana with nuts
Water: 8 cups

Day 6/Phase II

So yesterday was a bit loco, didn't end up at McDs, but had a much lower calorie bowl of leftover soup. I did have a 1/2 glass of wine - managed to stop after that. It was difficult though, so I'm thinking no more wine yet for a while.


B: 3 eggs w/bacon and milk
S: Cottage cheese and berries
L: Leftover salad and soup
D: Unknown quantity at this point - we'll be at my sister's house; I'll edit if I remember :) Planning on staying OP, but not sure with what

Phase 1 has been successful, cravings are pretty much gone and I've lost about 6 lbs. I'm looking forward to starting Phase 2 tomorrow. My plan is to add 1/3 cup oatmeal, made into a "pancake" for breakfast and 1/2 cup blueberries mixed with greek yogurt after dinner.
