Just did p3 for a week as part of reset.
Generally calories were at 1300 (I was shooting for 1400), carbs around 100 and fiber around 30 (about 70 net) with fat at about 50. I am trying to bring this up in calories each week for p4, so I am at about 1500 calories bringing the net carbs ups to about 80 (it's just been a couple days now) with fat at looks around 60. (The idea is to be able to eat more calories day to day and not "go wild" every fun day.)
Couple of questions for you: what is your weight & height? what does "snacking on granola mean? Does it mean, I measure out an amount and sit down and eat it? or does it mean two or three times a day when I pass the bag I grab a handful? (bet you know where I'm going with this).
Granola as a real snack, maybe 150 calories worth ONCE a day (or 75 calories worth twice a day) is going to be fine.
Snacking on granola and justifying it by it not being cookies or ice cream, I really think that is going to get you into trouble, especially as a day to day mind set. (I found a protein ice cream that is really too high in sugars no matter what the fiber count and am pretty sure I got into a lot of trouble with it, thinking "hey, it's like a protein bar" and "at least its not cake, it's a healthy dessert).
Also, how many weeks or months were you on phase 1?
I have my theories on this stuff. ; )
