Okay, girls. Here you can post your food for the day. Do it however you like, but no cheating. If you eat a bag of Doritos and a bag of Bridge Mix, you'd better darn well write it down.

So far I've planned nothing other than this:

- 3 coffees w/skim milk
- smallish chunk of low-fat mozzerella
- can of white tuna in water
- small salad
- 6 waters
- two diet pops
- 5 shrimp rolls w/lettuce, mint, noodles and peanut sauce
- 3 of those sesame seed snack thingys
- small (well, regular) box of Smarties

Could have been worse.

:lol3:

Ellis, you kill me! I'm having tuna for lunch, but the can isn't on the counter yet. :lol:

This reminds me of those cartoon recipes in the newspaper where the first panel is, "Get out spoon and medium bowl". :D

2 coffees with Int'l delight low carb creamer....I know, probably not the best, but it's the only way I can drink my coffee. Probably another cobb salad for lunch....again.

I've had the following so far:
blueberry yogurt (FF/no sugar added)
one glass of Metamucil
one cup of hot tea

Plans for the day are:
snack: cauliflower dipped in a little horseradish
lunch: leftover Broccoli Cheese soup
snack: raw red pepper strips dipped in hummus
Dinner: Pizza Meat Pie and a veggie (probably cabbage with red onion) with a glass of Metamucil

I promise I'll come back and edit this if anything changes. And I'll be drinking plenty of water.

Shequila, I know how you feel, but the int'l delight creamers have those "hydrogenated" oils that are so very bad for us. :( How about 2% milk and some splenda syrups? They are very good, especially in coffee. I can't do my coffee with skim milk, has to have some fat, and 2% really feels like a treat. But even the saturated fat in whole milk or cream :yikes: is better for you than that hydrogenated stuff. :grouphug:

Breakfast: whole wheat bagel with minimal lf cream cheese
Snack: 20 peanuts
Lunch: salad with 1/2 cup lf cottage cheese, sunflower seeds, and lf carbwell dressing

Dinner: 1/2 cup fat free black refried beans, lf cheddar cheese, salsa, maybe some ff sour cream on top
Dessert: Either a sf fudgesicle or sf jello with ff cool whip on top

Mm mm good.

This is a good idea for a thread!

OK, so far today:

I cup coffee with In'tl Delight low carb creamer
4 eggs (I was starving - no dinner last night!)
1 small pork sausage link
1 V8
I cup green tea w/ Splenda

About 5 slices of deli roast beef
2 string cheeses
4 Hershey Kisses

vege salad w/ shredded mozarella, sliced almonds & blue cheese dressing
about a dozen almonds
s/f jello

What I had later:

t-bone steak
salad (like above)
glass of wine (or 2)

LOL - this is a bad day for me to do this! I didn't eat anything yesterday and so I'm starving & eating everything in sight today!

Laurie, Wendyjo is using it, too. Should we whip them, or let them blow up? I say let 'em blow up.

Later... I`m going to make a vegie quiche (No crust of course), which i will have for brekky and possibly for lunch as well....... and dinner will be lean meat with steam vegies.

I`m going to make a cheese & broccoli soup, some boiled eggs and cook some lean meats to keep in the fridge to graze on.

A toasted tomato sandwich on 100% whole wheat bread (2 slices) with Becel spread and real mayo, onion and fresh basil leaves. Yummy! Oddball breakfast but the first garden tomatoes beckoned!
Lunch will be Greek salad and yoghurt.
Dinner is planned as pork and cabbage, tomatoes, sweet potato chips.
Of course this could all change as the universe unfolds.

Go ahead and whip me, lol - I like it!

The flavored coffee creamers are the one thing I refuse to give up - even when I started SB and before they had the low carb version I still refused to give it up. If I can't have my coffee with creamer in the morning then there is no reason to live.

SOOOOOOO jealous of you non-Phase oners.

I had a veggie quiche cup and a little yougurt. For lunch, I had some chicken and summer squash with tomatoes that I made last night. For snack, I just had yougurt with cinnamon and slenda. For dinner, I'm planning on oriental veggies and tofu with soy sauce, but am not sure tofu is a SBD food. Btw, this whole forum thing is fun! Better to jump on here than indulge in Starbuck's Ice cream which is presently trying to lure me into the firm's kitchen. =)

You know...I don't even think I looked at that...I just saw that it was low carb. I may have to try the syrups? Where can you get the SF one? Thanks for the heads up....that might explain why I am not losing anything since starting P2. :(

I say let them blow up, but no eating cake. ;) (I feel like Marie Antoinette!)

Ellis, I know you can think of a more interesting cheat than smarties! :lol:

Shequila, sorry I didn't notice this post yesterday! :goodvibes: Low carb products might be good for South Beach, but rarely just because they are low carb. Honestly, you need to read the ingredients of a low carb product before you eat it, because many of them are totally unsuitable for SBD, and we don't count carbs anyway, so... :shrug: But I understand the mistake...I have made many like that. I seem to spend most of my time saying, "There's sugar in that???" :lol:

There are tons of great sugar-free syrups made by a ton of companies. The most popular ones I found are DaVinci and Torani (sp?) syrups, both available at most small coffee shops, but also at TJ Maxx, Marshall's, and online. Here's more about syrups:

Good luck! I think it's great that you are working so hard to stay OP! :cp:
