I'm going to try to ask myself when I eat something if
**I'm hungry
**it's REAL food

Phase I

B: mushroom, spinach and feta omelette
S: cheese stick and/or veggies
L: red bean with pepper and feta salad!
D: stuffed peppers (rice for family, cauliflower for me)
D: cashews. Must measure first! (or a cream cheese concoction...)

I'm beginning phase II - lost 5 lbs on Phase I - which was a real victory for me! I'm going to begin by adding in a fruit serving each day. I'll begin adding in a starch next week:
B: egg on top of spinach, tomato, green onion saute. Tomato Juice
S - I know I'm supposed to, but I never have time for a morning snack
L - Deli Turkey on a Salad
S: Greek Yogurt Protein shake
D - Salmon patties with Veg.

Wait - where did I put my fruit??? I know - I'll add strawberries to my salad at lunch. That'll work!
