You're on the right track! It's good to have things pre-made that way you are never starving and searching for a quick meal.

I sure hope so! I am remaining positive that I can do this as long as I stay prepared!!!

Trust me you'll do fine. There is a possibility that you may be a little tired and have a headache the 1st few days as your body detox's from all the sugar and other bad stuff. But after that you'll be fine. I totally avoided the "south beach flu" and this is the 2nd time I'm doing it so you may be lucky as well.
I was never hungry and didn't really have cravings. You'll be surprised how much you won't miss the junk.

An option for down the track if you're time poor or lazy (like me!) is to have some yoghurt - 1/2 cup of natural or greek - for breakfast, if you've run out of prepared breakfast options like the vegetable fritattas. Good luck! I'm cheering for you =)

thanks! I do have 3 plain no fat greek yogurts in the fridge but no idea what I would do to them to make them edible as I tried one plain last week and BLECH......all I can think is that I will make them into a savoury dip option which I am not sure I could do in the mornings haha....I will be thankful to be on phase 2 where i can have my steel cut oats in the mornings!

add some sugar free syrup to the yogurt Pear Fairy. Or sprinkle in some crystal light...not sure how much...just add to taste. I buy the sugar free coffee syrups (like what they use at espresso stands), those go very well with yogurt for phase 1 and beyond...plus there's a ton of different flavors to choose from.

Phase 2 option: I recently started buying Fage plain greek yogurt and mixing in 2 or 3 TBS of frozen blueberries and one packet of Sweet and Low. It tastes amazing and is high in protein.
