It's time for a new week of talking On-Plan! This is the place for South Beach meal plan and food support, encouragement and questions.

Anyone, from any phase (1, 1.5, 2, 3, etc.) can post, and those who are new to 3FC are especially encouraged to do so!

This thread is for questions, sharing advice and strategies, and encouraging each other to stay on plan. It is not for chatting about daily life unrelated to this topic. Members have indicated that they would like to have chatting remain in the Daily Thread, so any posts that are off topic or chatty will be moved by the mods to the Daily.

People in different phases of South Beach post here so it will help everyone if you indicate what phase you're in when you post. Thanks!

While you may certainly find, from time to time, the need to ask for help after going off plan, remember that this thread is about staying on plan. When you share details of off plan foods you've eaten, it can upset, tempt, and otherwise frustrate other members, so please keep these details to a minimum.

So, share with us: How are you staying on plan this week?

How's it going for you?

Of course feel free to share your daily on plan menu

Today was my first day, and I think I did pretty good. I did get a headache in the morning and came back in the evening, but a overall had a good day.

B- scramble egg with mushrooms, onions, and tomatoes and 2 slices of turkey bacon and coffee with milk.

L- stirfry (snap peas, onions, mushrooms, and few cashews) with grilled chicken breast and green tea

S- 1/2 glass of milk with 1tbs natural PB

I walked 8.8miles in the morning and ride the bike for 1hr in the evening. I drank 56oz water.

Hoping tomorrow I can drink more water.

Glad you had a good first day, make sure you get your beans and dairy (milk or plain yogurt) in... really helps with the headaches.

I ate way too many almonds & drank way too much coffee yesterday otherwise it was a good day. I am trying to basically do P1 for the week but allowing myself a little more beans as they really satisfy me and I know I am up a bit from overindulging.

B: 2 coffee w FF H n H and some LF yogurt

L: I am thinking tuna in the middle of a salad w grape tomatoes

D: Have red lentil & garbanzo stew from Kalyn's Kitchen site in the crockpot now.
