Ok. So I'm about to start Phase 2 tomorrow. I lost 7 pounds on Phase 1 so I'm motivated. I do plan on taking it slow and doing what it says...adding one starch and 1 fruit a day. But, when I get further into Phase 2, how do you figure the approx. GI of your recipes. For example, according to some lists I've found online, buckwheat flour is fairly low GI. I make pancakes for my kids with 1/2 buckwheat, 1/4 graham and 1/4 whole wheat flour. So, is that bad? Good?
I'm just not sure how to determine if something is really okay or not unless I see it specifically listed. Am I just freaking out over nothing? I guess I could just see how it affects my weight but I'm not sure I want to take the chance of haivng it trigger cravings. I've all but gotten rid of them on Phase 1.
TIA for any help or suggestions.
