I'm on day 1 of Phase 1. Here's my plan -

Breakfast
1 cup oatmeal (steel cut oats) with 1 small, chopped apple, cinnamon, a dash of butter buds and a smidgen of splenda, and 1 cup skim milk

Snack
Smoothie made from 6 oz plain yogurt, 1/2 cup skim milk, 1/2 cup raspberries, and splenda

Lunch
Salad of baby spinach leaves, chopped tomatoes and onions, 1/2 cup black beans, and roasted red pepper vinagrette (Seeds of Change). I'll try a cup of plain brown rice on the side, but if I don't like it then I'll dress it up.

Dinner
Eggplant and zucchini, tossed with 2 tsp olive oil and oven roasted
1 cup brown rice pilaf with porcini mushrooms and onions

Snack
Another raspberry smoothie

Exercise
30 minute morning treadmill
PUSH dvd
30 minute evening treadmill

Morning,

I have to food shop this afternoon and will give it a go starting tomorrow. After food shopping I plan on making some red lentil and carrot soup. Have to modify it a bit for phase I but will have that on hand in containers for the week.

Like both your menus. I really haven't made a formal menu for myself yet but as I think of something I add it to my shopping list. So far I know I will be making the soup.

I'm also thinking of a mock risotto. Saute diced veggies in a light broth and add that to brown rice.

Good luck everyone.

I am starting today too, my book is in the mail and should be in tonight

Seeing your menus for today, I obviously didnt bring enough food with me to work today. So tonight I will get on track with making a menu and planning better. Yesterday I went shopping for fruits and veggies, and you know it was weird only going to the produce isle!

Starting today again for Phase 1. Oatmeal for breakfast...cooking up a big batch of brown rice (I make it with low sodium chicken broth instead of water, gives it a better flavor) so that I can use it over the next couple of days. Also love smoothies with plain yogurt, small banana, frozen strawberries and some fresh squeezed OJ and some ice. Yummy.

Pam, I find shopping goes a lot faster now that I've switched to whole foods, and this diet (at least phase 1) is going to be even easier. And cheaper! I went to the farmers market Saturday and bought a lot of produce for just a few bucks.

I'm getting a late start on making my brown rice today. I'm going to try a tip someone else posted, that was from Cooks Illustrated magazine.

FOOLPROOF OVEN-BAKED BROWN RICE
1-1/2 cups long-, medium- or short-grain brown rice
2-1/3 cups water
2 teaspoons butter or vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 375 F and move a rack to the middle position. Spread the rice into an 8-inch square, glass baking dish. In a covered saucepan on the stove, bring the water and butter or oil to a boil over high heat. Once it begins to boil, stir in the salt and pour over the rice. Cover the baking dish tightly with a double layer of foil. Bake for one hour, until tender. Remove from the oven and uncover. Fluff the rice with a fork, cover with a clean kitchen towel; let rice stand 5 minutes. Uncover for another 5 minutes, then serve immediately. Serves 4 to 6.
