:) Hi everyone. New member here. I was looking over your recipes for phase 1 and 2 and they are delicious. I have been trying to decide what plan to go on and was going to do WW Core plan, but it doesn't allow bread unless you count your flex pts and it seems SB has more to offer. You can have whole wheat bread and make things with whole wheat flour which is right up my alley. I will miss my white potatoes though as I know they are not on the plan. I don't like sweet potatoes. Hey I have the SB books and recipe books, but never used them and think I will get them out and read them and maybe I can do this plan. One thing on WW core you can't have turkey bacon, only canadian bacon and I hate that stuff. I mean I have bought it and let it go bad. I love turkey bacon. I hope I get support here and make some friends...barb

Good morning, Barb, and :welcome: to The Beach. Be sure to read the book and our Forum info thoroughly before you start Phase I. Ask questions and do join us on the daily. There's lots of support in this area of 3FC.

Barb - In phase 2 you can have small red new potatoes occasionally. They are limited but my husband is allergic to sweet potatoes so he eats them when my son and I share a sweet potato. Welcome to the Beach!

Try using the turkey bacon if you like it so well, I bet you still get the desired weight loss. One or two personal "bends" in a program sometimes work if it makes it easier to stick to. The problems start when you bend on 5 or 6guidelines!
