Welcome to another round of the daily on plan thread. Posting your menus for all to see helps us to remain accountable and to get help with any menu issues we may be having. In an effort to help us all remain on plan and not tempted, let's leave the food porn talk in the daily chat.

It does go away after a few days but don't be afraid to eat bigger portions if you are still hungry...as long as it is items allowed on Phase 1.

I drink a lot of water between my meals and it helps me a lot. If I get bored of water I had Crystal Light. :)

Can you have dairy? If so, Greek yogurt is excellent and filling. You can sweeten it with any number of non-sugar sweeteners if desired (though I went through a stage where I got to love it plain - an acquired taste for sure). I use cottage cheese a lot. Also plenty of people here like the ricotta creme desserts. If you can't have dairy, there are some soy products that could be substituted. One of my favorite smoothies is made with silken tofu.

Also beans! All forms (except peas) allowed on Phase 1. A side of pinto beans or refried beans with breakfast is very filling. Garbanzo beans/kidney beans/edamame add bulk to salads...etc.

Don't know how big your salads are but make sure the total veggies for the day is 4.5 cups, minimum. That should fill you up. (Also many sources say leafy greens like lettuce count for half as much since they are less dense ... I thought I had bookmarked a great visual but I can't find it so here is the American Heart Association (http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/Caregiver/Replenish/WhatisaServing/What-is-a-Serving_UCM_301838_Article.jsp); but according to the SBD reference list, all veggies are measured the same).

I personally have been focusing on getting more protein plus all my veggies and when I do that I am not hungry and actually I have to make myself eat sometimes.

But anyway, if you are starving, eat more! :broc: on plan foods of course...

S. cup of SF FF mango coconut ice cream

WOW - did you make this? I haven't yet found any *S*-free and *F*-free ice cream-type products. Seems like once they eliminate one of these variables, they jack up the other :lol:

I'm lucky enough to have an ice cream store nearby that makes their own, and they usually offer several varieties of both SF and FF. My biggest problem is portion control!
