What I meant was that there are no snacks mentioned on your menu or food log on the website. There is no place to log them on your food log.

LaDean.........I got into some trouble on the Prevention site for repeating/copy/pasting information so I have to be very careful that I don't infringe on the Flat Belly online. I probably shouldn't have post the snack suggestions. (Bev, once off the jumpstart you don't get a snack if you're on the 1100-1300 calorie plan) I started dividing up my lunch, 1/2 at lunch time and the other half around 3:00. Many people complained about not having a place to post snacks on the personal menu and they said they'd work on it.
LeDean, I got a 3 month free trial on the online site, you could try that if you're serious about it. Otherwise I could email you the 4 day jumpstart and the reasons for it.

Bev, I read somewhere on there that some of them were adding it on to one of their meals. I can't remember, but I think there is a place at the end of each meal planned for adding more foods. Check it and see. I planned my whole week on there, but I didn't know what that was for and haven't been back there.

Can you believe it? I just got an email from Prevention in answer to my question as to whether I'm getting the book or not. They said they had some kind of technical problems which kept me from being signed up for the plan I wanted so they are sending me the book for free and refunding some of my money. Can't beat that. I think I'll be keeping the book.

Bobbi,

Is it legal for us to share our foodlogs? As that would help us and anyone wanting to follow the plan. I changed my Sassy Water to a more Personal. I make up a pitcher of water with just the lemon and ginger. Also, why can't we just share what they showed on RR show. They showed how to make the Sassy Water just went too fast to catch the recipe. They also shared the 3 main rules didn't they? Can't we share that much?

Maybe Suzanne, if she is reading this could give us some guidelines on this. I don't want to break any rules, but want to be helpful too. I know I would appreciate her input on this. This is all new for me.

BTW I checked my JS menu with my WW Flex points. I am allowed 26 pts on Flex Plan and the daily JS plan (Day 3) is 25 pts. which makes it very WW friendly. So I think Day 5 will become WW Flex for me using the 26 pts just following FBD rules.

I'm not sure what can or can't be shared. I think food blogs would be o.k., good idea to ask Suzanne. One of the times I got my hands slapped was when I shared the winning Valentine recipe on the Prevention site. I copied/pasted it from the Flat Belly site,added the lady's name that made it. I was told I couldn't take anything out of the book and quote it on the Prevention threads.
I told her I didn't take it out of the book, I took it off the FBD site and I said it was the winner of the contest and who the winner was.
She said they had to tread lightly because the FBD is letting the Prevention site have a forum on their plan. I guess they (FBD)want you to pay for the plan along with buying the book. But like you say, the plan is everywhere. It was on Rachael Ray and Good Morning America plus in the Prevention magazine. So I'm totally confused just like everyone else. I just sent a private message to On2ndThought about the jumpstart. Maybe some of the questions we can answer that way.

Thanks Bobbi. I think you are right. I really don't think sharing what they say on television should be a problem. Maybe we can watch RR and the other show on the net even guide others to read it. What was it Good Morning America? That way we won't give out any more info than what they say themselves. Other info can be sent privately as you say. I'm sure that 3FC have to be careful and I don't want to do anything to lose it. So will wait till we hear from Suzanne on it.

Hi Everbody,

I finished 4 Day JS and I lost 5 lbs and 2 1/2 inches off my waist. Out of curiosity I did my overall measurement and lost 6 inches total. I did that because I heard RR ask if it would take inches off her rear end and she was told you would lose inches all over. So for the JS that turns out to be true. I am starting Day 5 back on WW Flex using the FBD principles of MUFAs added and being sure that I get my fiber. I read so much on nutrition I'm not sure where I get all my info, but I did read on Prevention.com and in my magazine how important the grains/fiber is. So I think that incorporates some of the Whole Foods thinking as well. How are you doing Bev, Bobby?

Fiber? Ah yes, I'm the fiber queen. When I first became aware of fiber and what it does for you I was amazed. Not only does it keep you full but moves everything along, if you know what I mean. I start every morning out with Fiber One. I have little snack zip bags with a serving in it, eat it dry like popcorn while I sit in bed and do Bible studies. Later I always eat a regular breakfast. One serving of Fiber One dry is only 60 calories and you get 57% of your daily fiber from just that. Most people can eat this with milk, I love milk but can't abide soggy cereal, so love it dry.
I'd love to hear what everyone is eating and how they are working it into the FBD program. I personally count calories, but include the MUFA's in.

Greetings one and all:

Good news I've lost 6 lbs. Although I was initially discouraged, It occured to me that it may be taking longer for me to see real weight loss because I lift weights. Muscle weighs more than fat. I guess I also really need to use a tape measure to see if I'm loosing inches.
