I am new to this forum but have some confusion I am hoping you can help solve. I just moved to Phase 3 today (actually, starting it tomorrow), but the info I received from my clinic is different than what I am seeing online and I am not sure which is correct.
The overview sheet that I received from my clinic says that for breakfast, I should have:
1 protein (or IDEAL COMPLETE packet), I carbohydrate (grain and/or fruit) and 1 fat. OPTIONAL: Coffee/tea with 30ml (1 oz) of regular milk
It also says that "Ideal Complete must replace a protein and must be consumed once daily. When consuming Ideal Complete at lunch or dinner, you must still eat 4 ounces of your protein, always being mindful of your BMR." This Ideal Complete packet is in addition to an Ideal Protein food for snack!
But everything online says that breakfast should consist of 30g or less of Carbohydrates (subtract the grams of fiber from total carbohydrates), 20g or less of Fruit, 15g or less of Fat and 25g or less of Protein.
Breakfast should be between 400 and 500 calories in Phase 3.
And there is no mention anywhere of "Ideal Complete" packets on phase 3 that I can find, other than the snack.
I have attached the overview sheet I received from my clinic in case that helps.
SO, any help in clarifying would be greatly appreciated! I would have to have gone this far only to screw it up because of conflicting information.
Thank you in advance!!
