Ok So I am just going into phase 1 week2 and for week 1 I went from 200 down to 191.5 (yay) but then this week I've shot back up to 195 in 3 days. (I weigh on Sundays officially, but I weigh every morning after using the restroom and without anything on). Here's a sample of what I'm eating and I'll give you my exercise routine, maybe one of you can see something in my plan that isn't working or that I'm doing wrong. Thanks so much!!
Week 1 I ate:
b- Sausage and egg cup with 2 tsp salsa
s- chicken breast with fresh veggies
l- curry chicken salad (out of south beach diet book) with peas (I didn't know until yesterday that they weren't allowed on southbeach)
s-black bean salad (lots of veggies, less than 1 serving cheese, 2tsp dressing)
d-different recipes out of south beach diet book (usually 1-2 servings protein and 1 serving veggies)
Also at some point during the day I would have 7-14 almonds and 3 of the days that week I had a serving of sugar free jello
Week 2 I'm eating:
b- protein packed cheesecake (from this site)
s- chicken breast and fresh veggies
l- kebab recipe from south beach phase 1 cookbook
s - 3 bean salad (with splenda)
d - different recipes out of south beach diet book (usually 1-2 servings protein and 1 serving veggies)
I'm still eating almonds like I did last week and almost nightly have been eating a FF Fudgescile because I'm having these wild cravings for chocolate (which I never had when I wasn't dieting or even last week).
As for workouts:
I run/walk 1 hour 4 days a week (going 2.5 miles)
I do strength training workouts 2 nights a week
and I have one rest day where I don't do anything at all.
I'm sure some of this is water weight but I can't tell if I'm gaining any real weight or if there are any flaws in what I'm doing so far. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
