I'm in my third week of phase 2- and I followed the advise to only add 1 carb and 1 fruit a day for a week, working up to 2-3 of each per day. I was really nervous about this phase because I had read and heard that many stopped losing or gained back weight doing phase 2. Plus, I felt I had worked so hard and finally was in such control over my eating, I didn't trust myself.
I opted to stick with phase 1 recipes, and just add carbs to compliment. I've also read from others that different carbs can cause different reactions in different people- so if you find eating cereal for breakfast leaves you hungry, or certain carbs at dinner introduces cravings- adjust accordingly.
I'm still being cautious, haven't added more than 2 carbs and 1 fruit a day- but I need to trust the plan a little more and expand, because I am starting to feel a little bored or restricted- I feel a major breakdown coming! Good Luck :
