I am new to this forum. I done SB years ago after my 3rd child. I got about half way to goal, feel off the wagon and now I am the biggest I have ever been.

I am glad I found this forum because obvisously somethings have changed from the version of the book I have.

Right now I am on day 4 and I have been really good but today I am zapped for some reason. It is all I can do to get my housework done. I would love some coffee but I cannot stop at a few cups. I do not drink it that often, but when I do I make up for it. ;)

Looking forward to keeping up with everyones progress!

Hey Payday, usually around Days 3-5 of Ph1, I find myself exhausted and sometimes headachey. Some of us call it the SB "flu." Some get aches with it, etc. If you're feeling "zapped," try a cup of milk. That might help :)

:welcome: to The Beach again. Take a good look at the Revised Phase I list because there are some changes there that may help you to conquer Phase I. The changes are in green. The addition of dairy and legumes will help.
Good Luck but rely on planning ahead!

I was so happy to see milk added. I was just thinking I may go fix me a glass with some of my SF kahlua syrup... Hopefully this will pass fast! I am hanging on. Although I have not been anywhere and the house doesn't really have any bad food that appeals to me. Tomorrow I go to my parents so I hope this passes before I get there. Also anytime I am in the car is bad for me. I apparently was a drive thru junky and didn't realize. My kids are going to be eating so much healthier!!

I feel that way too at the mid and end of Ph1. To each it's different but I empathize. Hang in there :)
