Not going to post about today. I woke up too late to make my smoothie and today was going to be a fast day anyway but I just couldn't face it. I felt so HUNGRY! Got a smoothie at the hfs for breakfast but then had Indian food for lunch and ate it all - including rice, naan and papadum - and then had bagel chips and hummos for dinner. Ugh. Tomorrow will be my 2nd fast day for the week.

Hi everybody,
I'm glad to see so many , doing so well. I hope I'm replying to the group and not to just one. I've been emailing my program to a couple of people, and vice versa, but it isn't working for me. I need to see more peeps actually DOING it. So I've subscribed.


04-25-2013, 03:41 PM
I love someone else who can eat the same thing twice in a day - or at least 2 days in a row.

04-25-2013, 07:37 PM
Lisi - welcome, and I hope this helps you out! I often make a salad or soup for the week, and eat it most days. I had leftover beet salad and leftover brocolli salad today. Tonight was leftover mexican chicken crockpot cass. It's a lifesaver for me to eat the same thing several times!

Thursday: P2

The past two days have been very hectic, and with SB curing me of cravings, I've been so tired at the end of the day that I haven't had energy for much of a dinner. So, I think I ate way too little for two days and consequently felt really lethargic today. I was having hunger pangs but little interest in eating. So, I decided to make myself a huge salad this afternoon, and for the first time in 3 weeks, I tried grains, 1/4 cup brown rice...a little nervous it will spike cravings...but I figured it was time to start learning how to move to a more long-term way of eating before my body shuts down and I binge one day (even though I've been 99.9% perfect--with the exception of a taste of frosting for my brother's wedding cake--for 3 weeks).

B: coffee
L: 3/4 cup ff plain yogurt with fruit
S: 15 cashews, piece of cheese
D: spinach salad with cukes, 4 baby carrots, mushrooms, 5 black olives, red pepper, 1T LF bleu cheese crumbles, 1T lite bleu cheese dressing, 1T greek yogurt......and the frightening 1/4 cup brown rice...fingers crossed that cravings don't spike...kinda nervous

Glass of skim milk
Cherry tomatoes

Whole wheat tortilla w/ chicken, onion, lettuce, green peppers, rf cheddar & salsa (homemade)

Cheese String

Celery w/ pb (Very munchie today... I blame the tortilla)

Happy Friday Everyone! I just noticed this thread. I LOVE talking about what I eat lol So I will try to make a habit out of this.

Breakfast - Atkins Caramel Nut Chew Bar, String Cheese
Snack - Almonds
Lunch - Chicken breast leftover from dinner, celery, low fat cream cheese
Dinner - Grilled venison tenderloin, Green Beans and grilled zucchini

Love having my foods mapped out ahead of time. I feel so prepared and ready for the day. My biggest concerns have been getting through the weekends and for me its all about keeping busy! :dizzy:

Tomorrow will be back to 1.5)

What is 1.5?

Phase 1.5 is a name given by some of us here on the board, sort of a made up phase between phase 1 & 2, where you can eat somethings from the phase 2 menu but not all (for example, I can eat carrots & fruit... but still wont eat any grains)

Its not any part of the official South Beach lifestyle.... Alot of the people on the board like to use it as a transition between phases, but for someone like me who has a very hard time with breads, rice, pasta (even the whole grain stuff) it is easier to just avoid it (when possible) and stay on the so named "phase 1.5"
(I hope that explanation makes sense):dizzy:

Lindsay, making lots of sense. I googled 1.5 and found it! That is probably me.

Still having some trouble staying on the wagon. Friday not so good. I am up til wierd hours, and night eating is the worst. That's why I list a 12:30 bedtime, which I have to get going.

Spontaneous b'day for my stepdaughter, and I didn't want to be wierd, so I had a small portion of low-fat, spin, lasagne, trying not to eat the pasta. Chips&salsa, salad 2 dots of dressing. Sliver of bread. 2 bites fruit. A few nuts when I got home. I'm not unhappy with it.

Good idea to write an am program - I had been doing that w/a couple of friends.

Someone please tell me how to find next week's thread when it starts. Thanks.

Saturday, P2

B: 1/4 cup oatmeal, 1/2 cup almond milk, 10 raisins
L: can of tuna, 1T lf mayo, 1 tomato, slice cheese
S: string cheese
D: roasted chicken breast; spinach salad: 2 cups spinach, 4 baby carrots, 5 greek olives, 1 tomato, slice red pepper, 2T bleu cheese crumbles, 1T lite bleu cheese dressing mixed with 2T Greek yogurt

S: (visited friends) 4 baby carrots with white bean hummus, strawberries with dip (1/4 cream cheese, 1/4 Greek yogurt, 1/2 sf cool whip) stayed on plan while socializing!!!
