Hi everyone,
I'm new to the board. I'm starting phase 1 tomorrow. Wondering if anyone else is? I've come to a stall so am going to try this out.

Ditto for me.

I've been on Atkins before but missed the fruit. I look forward to being able to eat fruit sooner. From what I understand Phase 1 is just like Induction for Atkins. If I am incorrect, someone please let me know.

cajunsugar - Lafayette, huh? Me too. Where abouts?

I have no idea what the induction to Atkins is like, so I wouldn't be able to compare the two.

The FAQ lists Phase 1 appropriate foods.

Also, there is a Phase 1 thread that all the girls on P1 chat in.

I just checked out the induction phase of Atkins....it has some similarities, but a TON of differences. I would recommend reading the book, or at the very least checking out the Phase 1 acceptable foods.

Remember that this isn't a low carb diet, but a "good" carb diet. There is no limit on carbs as long as they are the right ones and phase appropriate. During Phase 1, the carbs come mainly from vegetables and legumes and in later phases from vegetables, fruits, whole grains and legumes.

Here is the link to the Phase 1 food list http://3fatchicks.com/forum/showthread.php?t=141376

But I would highly recommend reading the book to fully understand the concepts...especially Cajunsugar who is coming off of Atkins and will likely have confusion between the two.

Thanks for the link! I should be okay for tomorrow using the info from the link. I really didn't realize how different SBD was compared to Atkins. I will buy the book ASAP. I would also like more info on how the diet works compared to Atkins. Is blood sugar control taken into consideration?

Definitely. It is recommended to eat three meals plus at least two (usually three) snacks per day. In addition to frequent meals, we eat foods that are low on the G.I. scale.

It should be easier to commit to for long term because after phase 1, there really isn't any deprivation. It teaches moderation of whole foods - which is essentially, the healthiest way of eating. It's very easy to picture myself eating this way for the rest of my life - not simply to maintain my weight, but to be healthy. There are many of us who have shown lowered blood pressure as just one of the many benefits in addition to weight loss.

Also, because carbs are not limited - just told to maintain good carbs (whole grains, fruits, legumes, etc.) there is no risk of ketoacidosis like with Atkins.

The main library on Congress should have the book which will provide you with more theory. The latest book - SBD supercharged has a lot more scientific backings to his theory...although you may have to request and reserve it from the library.

Thanks! Until I can get the book tomorrow night, how does this sound...

breakfast: 1 hard boiled egg
snack: 1 small apple
lunch: salad-baby spinach, low fat cheese, turkey with ranch
snack: 1 oz. almonds
supper: baked chicken, broccolli

Am I eating enough? Am I getting everything I need? Do I need to exclude any of my choices?

Talking Hello...

I just finished P1... Today is my last day...

The first thing I wanted to mention was that you should really check out the frequently asked questions area there are food list there... make sure you look at the Phase 1. Fruit is not on the Phase I list of foods.... that is in Phase 2 when fruit is added back.

You might want a more substantial breakfast.... Perhaps a veggie omlette?

Also for varitey and added Veggies... you may want to add some more veggies to your salad. I load up on the veggies personally. I love Veggies! he he he

There is a lot of good stuff in the frequently asked questions area, if you haven't been over I would recommend it.

Have a awesome day on the beach tomorrow!

That is ok for Phase 2, but for phase 1 not so much. It also isn't very much food or calories. Have you ever used Fitday? I would plug your daily menus into fitday and make sure you are getting at least 1200 calories.

Breakfast should include veggies of some sort - even something simple like v-8 juice.

no fruit on P1.

lunch, make sure the ranch is sugar free and only 2 T. are allowed.

the second snack and dinner look ok.

I don't see any dairy - 2 cups a day is recommended (milk is ok on SBD, unlike Atkins). More veggies! 4.5 cups a day is the recommended amount! You could also throw some legumes (black beans, kidney beans, chick peas, lentils, etc.) on your salad to up the protein and deliver some good carbs.

Make sure to read the P1 appropriate food list!

oh and the salad dressing should be under 3g of sugar per serving and between 11-16 g of fat per serving.
