SabbyKay, I remember the scary feeling of going out into Ph2 land after the safety and comfort of Ph1. I was particularly scared because I had tried SBD the year before and followed the menu plan in the book, so I added stuff too quickly and cravings came back and I didn't last long after that. This time, with all the good advice from the chicks, was so different. Ph2 is awesome, you will be so happy to have all these great options in your menus. I continued to lose at a very constant rate once I started Ph2. If you go slowly and add things one at a time, you will be just fine. Pay attention and if your loss slows too much when you eat up to 3servings of grains/day, and 2 or 3 fruits a day, you'll just have to cut back. You may find certain legal foods you need to avoid, or times of day that you can't eat them. Even now, most days I have one serving of fruit and one or two servings of whole grains. I'm going to try increasing the fruit a bit to help with an issue that would be TMI, but I will carefully monitor how it affects me. Anyway, just look at it as a learning process and proceed with caution and you'll do great! And enjoy those berries! That's a great way to start!
Life's a journey, not a destination.
It's easier to stay on plan than to get back on plan.
