Has anybody had chili on plan? If so, how did you count it? I don't do anything too drastic. ground beef, kidney beans, tomato sauce, diced tomatos, chili powder, green pepper & onion.

Thanks! :)

I had asked about that one at my COD and they just told me it was not on plan. But I count it as 1P 1S 1V Just be sure you get enough meat to equal an entire protein. I think it is no fair beans count as a starch, they are high in fibre and I love them.

I don't know where it is right now, but they have a Turkey Chili recipie that they gave me. I'm not sure if it is in the new cookbook or not. The recipie did not include beans and used ground turkey breast. Ask around...

So far, so good...although I am tempted to step on and just take a peek! But I won't. I'm also doing the 6 week challenge. How about you?

Yeah, I am doing both. I must be losing too, because I am fitting into smaller clothes. I feeling like you, I want to look, but I'm not going to. The end suprise is going to be so much better!
