Thanks! 1 More week of phase 1 and then I'll be moving on to one week of phase 2 and 2 weeks of phase 3. We changed my goal to 120 instead of 115.

thanks!
She said that most of the days on vacation I should try to stick to phase 3 but some of the days I can add in grains/carbs for dinners out. We'll see how that goes!

How exciting to be so close to goal! Have you been buying new clothes already?

I bought 3 bathing suits and 2 sundresses from Tommy Bahama. I'm sure they will fit in 6-8 weeks when I'll really be wearing them.

Hey all

Have a quick question about phase 2, will be heading into phase 2 in about 2 weeks time and my coach who is registered nutritionist is going to transition me to breakfast first, keeping the IP lunch and snack, I know by this forum that it's the lunch that comes first in P2 and breakfast in Phase 3, has anyone done something similar?

cheers/s...

Fun! I haven't bought anything new yet. I really need work clothes but I get excited about weekends because I can wear old jeans I used to fit into. I tried on 2 pairs of skinny jeans I had and they were too big! hehe

My coach gave me the handout that has been posted on the boards and said that we'll just be changing our lunch to animal protein.. not sure where your coach got their info or why they are doing it that way.. What does she want you to have for breakfast? For phase three we change our breakfasts to carbs, fats, dairy, and fruits...

Easier: Find the Phase 3 breakfast thread. I learned all I needed to know there. It really isn't so scary if you spend some time learning ahead-of-time & have a plan going into it.

There is also a much newer thread where people have been talking about P3. The last post on this one before yours was over a year ago

Phase 3 !!!

Hi! Everyone has some worries about going from the super structure of P1 to the land of P3 where you have options!!! Trust us you will love it! (And P4 is even scarier !) and in P4 we're all so different that you'll have to learn what works and doesn't work for you..

You'll do great! Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yummo!!!!

Thank you Lisa and NE! I have been reading all the threads, and actually made the jump this morning after 2 hours of calculations and debate. It is so weird to be eating real food again...

1 slice Dave's Killer Bread 60 cal slice
1 tbsp almond butter
1 cup peach
1/2 cup cottage cheese, 2%
1/2 cup scrambled egg whites
almond milk in my coffee

I totally enjoyed it, and made it through lunch..onwards to dinner. My concern is that I don't want to slip...I am worried the carbs will trigger cravings for more carbs...

I have a question about phase 2 and beyond - my clinic gave me handouts that say 8oz of protein for lunch and dinner. The handouts that I have seen here say 7oz chicken or fish and 5oz beef. Did the structure change and does my clinic use older handouts? If anyone happens to know, please clarify for me. Thanks!

I'll link the newest protocol sheets for you. It is 8 oz. Other things you're looking at are older sheets.

Edit: Link to post with most recent protocol sheets
