So I had a grain today and oh my do I feel guilty! Does that ever go away?? I made chicken quesadillas with a 100% whole wheat tortilla, lg cheese, chicken, tiny bit of turkey bacon, lots of tomato, green tomato salsa and raw onion and I feel like a slob now! :(. I quess I could have stuck in some more veggies, but please someone tell me it wasn't that bad! Lol.

It wasn't bad! lol. I feel this same way sometimes, even if it is a whole wheat, because carbs are so demonized. I do, however, remind myself that my body needs fiber and as long as I regulate my carbs and take in healthy ones I should not feel bad. Does that help at all?

That's helps except for the lol after you said it wasn't bad!!! Lol

The lol wasn't laughing at you though, it was laughing at the way food and eating makes us feel. It so funny, I just read someone's post about feeling guilty for eating too much healthy food, and I do this to. I feel guilty over eating too much healthy food, carbs even if they are whole grain, I sometimes feel like I can never do enough, but then I just have to laugh at myself and think oh wow, stop this, you are doing great, celebrate your healthy choices. Sometimes I have to laugh at the expectations I hold for myself because I lose sight of my goals in the midst of all those rules and taboos.

At least what you had was healthy. I drank a few beers on Saturday. DH and I were at a local club and everyone was having so... much fun. Hadn't had any alcohol in ~ 2 months except for 1/2 glass of champagne @ a wedding. I actually felt buzzed after 2 small draft beers. I should have eaten a ww tortilla instead!

It is normal! And you did good (I just eat a salad at some point with my snack or something)!!! Don't feel guilty for doing the right thing. Remember, Ph2 is something to LIVE ON!!! :)
