hi ladies- posted this in my "hulloo i'm back" thread but would appreciate y'alls opinions

"i have rationalized the idea of doing a "modified" P1- whole grain carbs at one meal only.....i think i am chickening out, tho
ummmm i'd really appreciate some input here- has anyone else ever tried a p1/p2 combo? or is the tabula rasa method the most effective?"

i do weigh about 203 pounds now but am exercising every day (weight training 30 day shred....) boy oh boy you can tell i am not relishing the thought of my 5th bout with p1.....

Phase 1 is Phase 1 for a reason. It seems to defeat the purpose of the cleansing of Phase 1 if you don't follow it precisely.

In my opinion, any healthy diet is a good idea.And if you stick with it, it will work.A diet concentrated in veggies, fruits, lean meats , low fat dairy and whole grains is recomended by medical and nutrition professionals.Sounds like a great way of eating.

I do understand this is not SBD though.I am a big fan of SBD but if you are unable to follow their recommendations, then this is also a healthy way of eating-forgot to add that.Good luck.

I'd say go with it ONLY if that is the ONLY way you can succeed getting started.

BUT, a clean phase 1 is SO important and you may be setting yourself up for problems down the road....detox all the way!

I was actually looking forward to restarting again, and don't mind p1 at all. Am I the only one? lol

Last week was my first week, and also the first week in a *long* time that I have felt as good as I did.

Any step in the right direction, is good .. but I kind of agree with those that said that SB is set up the way it is, for a reason.

I just remind myself that it's only 2 weeks. 2 weeks of getting rid of all that crap, and getting myself on the way to success.

I was totally ready though to do this, so I didn't have that fear or thought process of it. I just jumped in.

You can do it.. you've done it before, you can do it again

When I am wanting to mess with the structure of this WOL (which I am not calling a diet today) by eating something not OP, I will tell myself, "Debbie, don't mess with the chemistry."
More Sugar=less weight lost
I believe that my lack of cravings which has made the last 10 weeks PDE(pretty darn easy) is because I detoxed during a clean P1.

While eating healthier is always a better choice, the reason I am committed to SB as prescribed is that I am ready to live at a normal healthy weight in a reasonable time frame. The majority of my weight loss from "eating healthier" on my own came at an amazingly slow 1# per MONTH. 63 pounds took 6 years!

I think if you post post post here, that 2 clean weeks will go by very fast.

My vote is clean P1. I hear so many P1'ers saying just what Ruby said, "Last week was my first week, and also the first week in a *long* time that I have felt as good as I did."

Best wishes!

Note: I wrote this in your other thread and transfered it here, Janda, so it's a bit late. So glad you've decided to do a clean P1!

Time for a If you've been pretty much on plan for a long time, you can consider a modified Phase 1. But it sounds like that's not at all the case. So you need to do the real thing. Not necessarily for 2 weeks, but I'd definitely do at least one week. You need to get the sugars out of your system. Just remember how good it feels to be on the other side of Phase 1! If you haven't been exercising much, put that off until Phase 2 as a way of making things easier, okay?

The best way that I stayed on Phase 1 without cheating is by ALWAYS having your meals planned out and having snacks ready--like cut up celery, nuts, and cheese ready for emergency snacks. It really helps! My friends are very impressed at how disciplined I am with my new WOL. =) Good luck!
