What is phase 1.5?

What is phase 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)

Thank you RiverGirl, yes you explained it well! I knew it wasn't part of the original South Beach because I have done South Beach before and knew it was phase 1,2,3. I was wondering what you all were doing on phase 1.5 and that makes since to me and thank you so much:)

morning! holding 2 pounds of water... could be worse I guess...
rode the Griffith Park Bike Loop yesterday after work...WOW! What a workout! Up and down hills and stuff - took over an hour but was so fun. TOM is playing games with me and refusing to show up on time...2 days late which is probably why the water weight. I'm in no mood to be bothered by it much, so moving on...

breakfast - leftover pressure cooker chicken breast in cheddar soup/rotel (about 2 ounces?) and zucchini sauteed in coconut oil
snack 1 - I brought cottage cheese and fresh cherries
lunch - tofu w/part skim shredded mozzarella and green salsa
snack 2 - stick of light string cheese
dinner - will be a salmon patty and steamed broccoli...maybe a salad made with baby spinach and coleslaw.

no bike ride tonight going to the gym for chest and back, so will try to get a little cardio in on the air trainer...but HATE it now it's so boring! Especially compared to riding my bike! *sigh* WhatEV...I'm off tomorrow - paid holiday at the temple. Shavout.

I see familiar faces - hi Lindsay. I've been away too long. Was away for a week in June with no internet at my mother's, and I never came back to SB groups. I doubt my ticker is correct. I came home and gained 5 lbs!
