Hello Everyone,

I finished pre conditioning and today I am starting day 1. I took the weekend off in between to celebrate my bday and that was a huge mistake. I am going to stay on plan from here on out. I look forward to having some support in this journey!

You got it! There is much support here...making this process a bit easier :) I am from Colorado, too!

Good luck,

Day 1 went ok. It wasn't enough calories and I had a headache all day. I even added in two spoonfuls of mac and cheese at dinner and was able to get my calorie count up to 1100. Has anyone else experience this? My workout burned 350 yesterday......Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.

I discussed this with the clinic and they just want me to add more HNS to my diet but that gets really expensive. Hopefully the next phase is better for me. 3 day to go.

this isn't a calorie-counting program, and adding in foods (especially ones like mac and cheese) could totally derail your program. This program is low-cal, low-carb, low-sodium, low-fat. if you feel you just have to add something, make it cooked egg whites, fish or chicken (lean proteins). once you get to the real program, you may need meta-balance if you work out that much. ask them about it.

Thank you! I will ask about it when I go weigh in! I wasn't sure what to add and the Mac and cheese was me tasting it as I served the family. I knew it was a mistake but i almost didn't realize I was doing it. I do appreciate the advice!
