Default First Day on SBD - Menu Review Please?

Hello!

Today I'm starting the SBD...I did a lot of research on it and am planning to get the book today but just wanted to try it out...not sure if the protein bar is good or not.

Breakfast - protein bar and 1 boiled egg

Lunch - Spinach sauteed in olive oil with tomatoes, onions, spices and cheese (paneer) w/ 1/2 cup plain yogurt on top

Snack - boiled egg

Dinner - Spinach & tilapia w/ garlic and olive oil

Thanks!

More than likely the protein bar has ingredients that are not allowed. Until you get the book, look carefully at the phase 1 and phase 2 food lists on the site here. In fact, our lists are more up-to-date then the hardback (unless a new edition has been published) and they match the lists in the paperback.

One thing you should do is aim for 4 1/2 cups of vegetables a day. That really makes a difference. Try for a variety of vegetables. Legumes are good for adding healthy carbs and helping to keep you full especially in phase 1. And make sure you are eating every 3-4 hours. I don't see a morning snack and that is required in phase 1.
