Hello Everyone! Well... I am back. I started SBD for the first time in the Fall and lost alittle over 10 pounds! I was at the thinnest I have ever been in my adult life. Then all of the winter holidays, family gatherings, shopping, and traveling happened... and everything I learned and worked for disappeared. It was like something snapped in my brain and all of those bad eating habits came back with a vengence.

So... I am starting over on Phase 1 starting TODAY! I went shopping last night and cleared out my kitchen of everything that is not needed. I also got a membership at a gym too!

I think having this site and all of you to chat with really helped me last fall stay on track and do what I needed to do. I found that when I was off SB, I avoided this site. So, I am back and am planning to stick around this time.

B- 1 egg w/ LF cheese + mushrooms, 8oz V-8 (calcium)
S-mixed nuts
L-salad (mixed greens, mushrooms, celery, cucumbers), LF lunchmeat rolls
S-celery sticks w/ horseradish hummus
D-grilled shrimp (and some kind of veggie side)

I am also planning on going to a weight lifting class from 5:30-6:30.
Hope everyone is having a great start to their week!

Thanks Ruth for starting this thread!

Brain snap happens to me too! It takes forever to heal up too.
back and no more shenanigans, Shenanigans!
Don't forget the dairy and legumes although I see hummus! I'm about to make a three bean salad.

Hello-

I am new to the beach. Today is my first day. I just had breakfast 3 sausage links and 2 bacon. I'm not an egg fan so I am trying to stay away. Snack will be a piece of laughing cow cheese on 2 celery sticks.For lunch I will do salmon wrapped in lettuce with lime juice. A second snack will be 30 pistachios. Then for dinner a pork chop, 1 cup salad and 1 serving of mock mash potatoes. How does this sound for phase 1? I am still a little confused but I think I got it down.
Also, if I bought some phase 2 meals by mistake can I take the bread out and still eat them or is that not advised?

Thanks for your help,
Nikki

Hello there! yes it did very well for me, I have hypothyroidism and have tried every diet I think and this is the only one that showed any results, and considering it has been some time since I have gotten back OP I have maintained pretty well, my weight loss comes slower than most but a pound lost is a pound lost is the way I look at it.

I am not sure but I would watch the sausage & bacon, I use turkey most of the time. the mods here are a great group and will help out alot.

good luck!!!

Whoa on the sausage and bacon! Please peruse the stickies in the FAQ Section. There's one on sausage there and the REVISED Phase I Food List. You must be sure to have legumes, dairy and at least 4.5 cups of good veggies. IMHO iceberg lettuce is not a veggie - it's a nutritional nobody!
Are the Phase II meals frozen? If so, save them.

hi-

Thanks for the reply. I feel like a fool I hate eggs so I was trying to eat protein without eggs. Also I used Romaine instead of ice berg I agree with you on the ice berg. I will have a nice size salad with dinner and only use lemon juice on it.Also I had a glass of milk and some cheese today for my dairy. So I looked at the stickies and it looks like 1 sausage link every week might beok but no more. Also, are pork chops not allowed on Phase I ? I am unsure. I will put the meals and bars aside until I hit phase 2.I'm not use to eaing so much so this is pretty hard for me to eat so much.

Nikki

gagirl - I'm not sure on the smoked oysters but I can tell you that pudding is not allowed on phase 1 because of the starches that are added as thickeners.

Thanks, Eagle Eye Barb - I missed that! We need to checked out the ingredients in the smoked oysters. What kind of oil are they packed in?

Hello everyone, I'm starting back tomorrow. I've been off plan for awhile myself (sounds like I'm not alone in that respect). Some of you may have read my post about cholesterol and tg's....not too terribly bad but like my doc said, I need to fix it before it's broke. Anyway, I have a few questions and suggestions.

1) I can't remember but were carrots added as being allowed on Phase 1? For some reason, I thought they were but I may have dreamed it. 2)Is sugar-free pudding allowed on phase 2?

Nikki-Some breakfast ideas that don't include eggs. I get tired of eggs sometimes and it's hard for me to get up and cook in the morning anyway as I'm not a morning person but I do HAVE to eat breakfast or I'll get sick.

1-2% cottage cheese
lean turkey or ham & cheese rollups (just be sure there is not too much sodium or any type of sugar in the preservatives). There are a few brands of lunchmeat out now that are natural with very minimal preservatives and salt. Oscar Mayer makes one and there are a few other brands as well
V8 juice, if you like it
Plain yogurt and add some vanilla or almond extract or lemon juice and some splenda for flavor
turkey bacon (you can have 2 slices of this per day)

Hope this helps.

Everyone, PLEASE read the Revised Phase I Food List in the Frequently Asked Questions Section and the other stickeis there.

Carrots are Phase II and puddings are as well.

Read the breakfast thread in the recipe section for ideas.
