Hi! I am starting SBD today and am excited. My copy of the book hasn't arrived yet, but I found enough sample diets and food lists to help me until my copy comes in the mail. I am 33 and have 35 pounds to lose. I look forward to any advice and hope to be able to give support too!

Welcome, Cindy! :wave:

I HIGHLY encourage you to read the book when it comes. I don't know how I would have made it through without knowing the background of what Dr. A was thinking with this WOE. :D

I love this's the first one I've done that I can truly live with ! :goodvibes: I hope you feel the same way!

I agree with Laurie. You might also want to get the cookbook. It has a lot of good recipes although I tend to take a lot of my healthy recipes that I already had and convert them. It is really easy once you read the book and the info on this forum. Just don't let yourself get discouraged during Phase 1. I gets a lot easier after the first week or two. I think the real secret to SBD is planning your meals and snacks so that you can shop for the ingredients and won't be tempted to grab something off plan. Welcome!

Welcome to SBD.

I have been on the plan for just over a month. Yesterday, I started Phase II after 5 1/2 weeks on Phase I. I wouldn't recommend that, though, it just happened that circumstances in my life made the decision to stay on Phase I more convenient.

You can do this...
