I am on Day 1 of Phase 1 too. From what I know of the diet (I'm no expert) it sounds like you did good except for the wine. Don't feel bad though I messed up at work this morning & had some real 1/2 & 1/2 in my coffee.

Here is what I ate:

Breakfast: 2 breakfast cup things from Phase 1 Breakfast Ideas off this forum. 1 cup reg coffee with 2 pkgs Splenda & 2 tsps reg 1/2 & 1/2.

Snack: 2 stalks celery with 2-3 tsps Skippy Carb Options peanut butter.

Lunch: About 3 cups salad greens with grilled chicken, reg Ceasar dressing (Ken's Steakhouse) & a little parm cheese. 1 can diet Coke.

Dinner: Salmon fillet with garlic powder & Carb Options teriyaki sauce, baked. 1 1/2 C steamed broccoli with my very odd dipping sauce( 1 Tbsp reg mayo & lo-sodium soy sauce). Diet 7-Up.

Other: About 70oz water sipped throughout day. Biggie Diet Coke from Wendys on way to nail appt since I was lagging by day's end. Hope I didn't exceed caffeine quota!!

Good luck to You and anyone else starting Phase 1!!!

Broomy and Melody, you both look to be off to a good start with just a couple of slips that I can spot - wine and 1/2 and 1/2 ? Best to stay pure for Phase I.

I'll merge this thread with the Getting Started Thread a bit later today.
In the meantime, please post on that thread.
