As I was reading through this thread this morning, what really stood out to me was how different we all are in P2. For me, in P2, I have taken several things into consideration;
1. What I enjoy eating
2. What I can eat and continue to lose weight
3. How I can learn to read labels and buy appropriately
4. What I can't stop eating when I start
For me, I have to find a way to incorporate foods I enjoy in order for SBD to be a WOL (as long as I can eat a reasonable portion then stop.) I enjoy bread, but I don't eat it every day and I need to understand what bread is appropriate WHEN I choose to eat it. I have found I am able to portion it and it doesn't cause cravings for me. Personally, I use Ezekial breads and tortillas but I keep them in the freezer, since I don't go through a loaf very fast. Ezekial products are made from sprouted grains instead of refined flours which I think make them really SBD friendly. My local grocery carries their products in the frozen food section and they are avaliable at health food stores. Here is a link to their products; http://www.foodforlife.com/
Here is a thread I found helpful for reading labels
Phase 2 - How to choose Breads
I still get frustrated from time to time because there is so often a huge difference between what the front of a package advertises and what the actual ingredients are. I am very careful when buying bread, crackers and cereal. BTW-with bread I'm fine, but crackers-I could devour a whole box, so I don't incorporate them into snacks but occasionally crumble a few atop my salad...and I rarely eat brown rice or sweet potatoes. I think that is one of the things I like most about SBD is that there are lots of choices.
Take it a day at a time. I remember being nervous when I started into P2. As you slowly add things you will quickly find what works for you and what doesn't.
