Default Life after Phase 1- renew

After spending a lot of time reading the original "Life after Phase 1" and "the Sequel", it seemed to me that we need a place to talk about Phase 2 & 3 and the transition to Phase 4 (maintainers). I know that we have some wonderful veterans out there that can help shed some light on the phase off process.

In the original "Life after Phase 1" started by Novak, they discussed the protocols, sample breakfast menus, recipes and concerns.

Slipfree - my coach added stuff back into my P3 breakfasts slowly. Added grains the first week, fruits the second week and my own protein and dairy towards the end of the second week. It worked well for me and I didn't gain any weight in P3.

I still pretty much eat a P3 breakfast. Today it was:

1/2 cup Mountain High vanilla yogurt
1 cup sliced strawberries
1 slice Dave's Killer Bread 21 grain
1 tbsp Adams All Natural Peanut Butter
1 hard boiled egg

I vary the fruit, switch out Kashi Go Lean cereal for the bread or use pumpkin flax granola, use labneh or butter on my bread sometimes... you get the idea.

Congrats on your success!

Favorite P3 breakfast is my own homemade pizza with lower fat cheese, lots of veg, and shrimp or diced chicken breast on it! AND, not even needing to include it for Funday in P4! But I have to be in the mood to cook, and have the time... On a day when I need something quick: pc of Onion Cheese GF toast, tuna & dab of Greek yogourt mixed with Patak's Hot Lime Pickle, lots of romaine on top of this open face sandwich, and a 1/2 c of raspberries to finish.

Thanks Ruth Ann, you are always so supportive. I meet with the coach next Sat. And begin Phase 3 that day. I have the need for information because that gives me power over my trepidation. Moving through these Phases can be daunting after so many months of Phase 1. I figure that I can not be the only one out there right now that is feeling this way.

I am interested in specific products that work for Phase 3 breakfasts. Cereal/granola in particular, because I foresee yogurt,fruit, cereal, low carb toast and nut butter as my go to during the school week. Have to be at school by 7:00. I have not in the past been a morning eater, but I am determined to do this right.

Best breakfast thread is this one
Phase 3 Breakfast Ideas

yes, it takes time to look through but oh my! Great ideas.

I needed Gluten-free so I made muffins (or pancakes) from flax & almond meal and coconut flour. I made them ahead-of-time, added a whole egg & sometimes some nut butter, along with some (homemade) plain yogurt with fruit.


The thread has the granola recommendations, however.
The time I spent reading the thread was time well spent because it helped reduce my fear

Thanks Lisa! Definitely searched that query, but did not get this thread. I will start reading

Update: I did read this whole thread! Brain must be on overload.

I like Ezekial bread, Thomas thin bagels, steel cut oats when I have grains, which I do not have very often. Love all berries, blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, rasberries. Like the morningstar and boca sausage products. Also have bacon a couple times a week, and eggs are always easy. I like Chaboni greek yogurt a lot.

I had to study it & go back several times to really figure it out.
It wasn't until I plugged my own meals into MFP that I got a clear picture of my own plan.

Mostly 3 breakfasts: One with a paleo muffin, one with corn tortillas (and huevos rancheros) and...hmmm...guess mostly 2 breakfasts! I just changed up the paleo muffin for a paleo pancake, instead.

Phase 3 breakfast:

3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt (Kirkland)
1 cup fresh strawberries or 1 cup organic frozen mangoes
2 pieces Freybe Canadian back bacon
2 pieces Silver Hills Little Big Bread
1 tablespoon Maranatha Almond Butter or 2 tsp butter

you could add a hard boiled egg but I'm very full after eating all this and the greek yogurt has a lot of protein.

I sometimes eat the following as a low carb option:

2 eggs scrambled with onions/zucchini/peppers/spinach and some cheese with 2pieces of bacon

or

1 minute Skinny Muffin

1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1 tsp coconut oil
1 tsp baking powder
1 pkg stevia
1 tsp cinnamon
1 egg

mix thoroughly in a coffee mug and microwave for 50 seconds. top with butter!

My absolute favourite Phase 3 breakfast:

2 pieces squirelly bread toasted
1 tsp butter
2 poached eggs
2 pcs bacon
1/2 grapefruit

Seemed like so much at first. I got it from a sample menu my coach sent me.

Thanks Hawaii! Seems weird to me that there aren't more people in Phase 2 or 3 right now. I know there are a whole slew of Oct. Newbies right behind me and I thought it would be good to have a current thread with easy information.

Thank you for starting the thread slipfree. I am going to start phase 2 next week and have been wondering about what phase 3 will look like. Do we eat any packets during phase 3? I am nervous about dropping my bars and crisps... I look forward to them everyday!
