I started out the new year with the atkins diet(I had done this years ago with success) but just feel like I would be more healthier doing something with less dairy and meat. I have done FS before with some success but after i get to the 9th day i usually fall off the wagon..hoping this time I can stick to this through march and get to other phases and where I want in weight. I will turn 42 Tuesday and feel like if I dont get rid of the my extra pounds and lean up I never will....I have found that I really need to execise...sometimes i try and just watch what i eat but with out execise I really dont lose much for long
This is tricker being a mother of 4 and home with a 3 year old and the fact that it is winter and hard to get outside and walk. I have a older treadmill I use but it just doesn't seem to be the same.
just wondering if anyone drinks coffee in phase 1? i know you are not supose to but i find it hard not to have it in the morning...i can drink it black if needed...I have tried tea and will again..but it's not the same.
also about brown rice
How much brown rice is too much? It says 2 cups in the book...I am asumming that is cooked?
Do you know how many rice cakes add up to 2 cups?
any thoughts on refried beans in can...or any beans in a can?
I have a lot of issues with portion size so if anyone has suggestions or ideas that would be great!
thanks for you time and help!
