If anyone has ideas about how I can stay OP maybe with alternatives, I would be so grateful. I'll have plenty of places like WalMart, Target, maybe GNC's along the way and in the city we will be in. I know I'll be gone for at least a full week then have to travel to a business trip for another full week again with no chance to get to my doctor.
I was thinking about phasing off P1 in three weeks.
Thanks in advance, everyone.
I feel for you and have been to heaven and **** in the course of my IP life with issues and emergencies concerning my aging parents. No details.. It does not matter.
2-3 Egg white omelettes filled with select veggies for breakfast.black coffee, tea or water....
Garden salad for lunch with 2-3 oz canned tuna or grilled chicken or a few shrimp. Keep meals to less than 120 calories. 15-20 G protein and NO sugar.. No carbs. Ask for sugar free guten free prep and extra select raw veggies on the side to get your 2 C.
Dinner.. Same as lunch but increase protein and be sure to order steamed veggies for your additional 2 c veggies. Get to walmart and use an EAS shake or one of the bars mentioned for a snack or restricted...I used HB eggs and shakes because I need to stay GF. I lost 70 pounds while also losing a parent within the last year.
Not ideal... But close. Good luck and I sincerely hope your crisis is a temporary situation.
We are still grieving at the moment, but I am still on track, and am so very sorry you have this stress. Sending hugs.
If you get through this, you will never be able to excuse yourself from not staying true to the choices you CAN make. You are the captain of your own ship.
