Question Just Starting...some ?s

Ok, I have looked everywhere for the answer to my question. My husband and I are doing this together(he wants to loose 15lbs. I want to loose 70...) We are following the menus from the book with the three meals and snack in between. I still seem to want more snacks-one cheese stick isn't enough, want more to nosh on at night. Is is ok to have more snacks then is in the standard menu as long as they are "approved" snacks? Or am I limited to just those three snacks(Late morning, late afternoon, and dessert) and only one cheese stick, one celery with cheese, etc...?

Hi Willshottie! and to you and hubby!
have you checked out the Emergency Handbook for Phase 1...? http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/showthread.php?t=58183... and while you're there check out the other stickies in FAQ section....

Unless something is listedwith specific amounts in the list in the thread link provided, or in the book, there is no limit on the amount you eat for each snack or meal. Perhaps you are not eating enough during your meals, or perhaps part of it is also habit....a lot of us are night noshers... You might want to start out concentrating on eating whole healthy items, and then concentrate on portion control . A favorite Phase one filling treat for me is egg salad stuffed celery and roasted chickpeas... hope this helps

from another relative newbie. I'm doing SBD with my husband too. His cholesterol is high and I obviously need to too. I'm more motivated with him than I was with other plans recently and I feel more creative, less restricted.

Onward! The boards and those great people behind the names are a great source of encouragement and support!

Closing this thread as it's from last April.
Welcome to you both. I see you've already found the Fat Chicks On The Beach area.
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?
