Default Phase 1 Accountability Thread!

A couple weeks ago, I posted that I'd be joining SBD after I ate the remaining food in my house. During that time to reflect, I almost decided that I didn't want to go on SBD because the pounds were just flying off! But... On the fly yesterday, I put my foot down.

I'd like to share my daily food intake for accountability, and even critiquing to see if I'm eating too much. I also invite anyone else on Phase 1 to join in!

Yesterday I had a half-day of SBD, because I wasn't aware that I'd be starting it that day. So my breakfast/snack is a bit naughty. But here we go...

Friday, March 12
- 1 beef hotdog (high in fat) 150 calories
- Ketchup
- Corn with garlic butter sauce
- Slice of raw fish
- 1 cheese stick
- A few strips of skinless chicken breast
- A deep bowl of half thawed spinach, half iceburg lettuce, w/ vinegar and salt
- Ricotta (with cocoa powder and splenda)

I think that was it. I'll keep today's accountability below

Saturday, March 13
Breakfast
- 2 scrambled eggs w/ splenda
- 1 small bowl of cucumbers w/vinegar

Default Help! First Timer Ova Here...

I bought the book yesterday and I'm starting phase I today. However, I'm confused about what exactly I'm suppose to be eating. Do I HAVE to eat from each food group each day? I do not like milk, cheese, yogurt or soy milk. I mean can I just eat lean protein and veggies all day or do I HAVE to eat nuts and beans etc. also.

Hi Timswife

Most of us come up with menus that suit our personal tastes and lifestyle while following SBD guidelines. I don't care for eggs or dairy, so I managed to avoid them as much as possible during phase 1, though I eat them more often now.

I've learned to enjoy a lot of new foods since joining this site. There are some great recipes and great ideas here. You might want to check out the "on plan" threads to get some new meal ideas and to see what others are eating.

I look forward to reading more of your posts!

I found this helpful for planning meals:

How to Adapt Your Meal Plan


This list doesn't include your daily nut servings. Check the Phase I list on the FAQ's. Just omit the dairy if you don't like milk or yogurt. Make sure you get your calcium from another source though, dark green leafy veggies, canned salmon, some beans & nuts, or supplements.

March 16, 2010. Day 4 of Phase 1
Breakfast (?)
- Qt of Miso soup
- 1 Small deli slice of lean turkey
- Bowl of ice burg lettach (apple cider vinegar and 1/4 TSP salt)
Lunch (?)
- 1 small piece of chicken
- Slice of pork
- 1/2 cucumber (apple cider vinegar and 1/4 TSP salt)
Snack
- 15 black olives
- 1/2 cucumber (apple cider vinegar and 1/4 TSP salt)
Dessert
- Ricotta with a spoon of all natural peanut butter, splenda, and vanilla extract


(I'll add more as the day goes on). So I have kind of an issue. I sleep... too much. It's Spring Break and I just want to sleep. My boyfriend does his best to wake me up, but I just... hate waking up Today I woke up at 3PM and had "breakfast" at 4PM. That doesn't leave much room for lunch, dinner, and all the snacks in between!! In fact... the last few days I've just been having breakfast, lunch, snack 1, and dessert... I'm PROBABLY not eating enough, but I feel completely satisfied. I don't like eating past 10PM even though I don't usually go to sleep until at least 3AM (for some reason, I don't usually get hungry past 10pm, AND I feel guilty eating past that time because I used to be a huge night snacker). My schedule will get better once spring break is over... but that's still a week away

I'd LIKE to keep up what I'm doing... I feel stuffed after each meal (all those veggies sure fill you up fast!) but I don't know I really need to post my foods daily.

Wild Vulpix, you need more veggies than iceberg lettuce and cucumbers, no dairy or beans.

Hi everyone! I started SBD this week after being on Medifast for a while. Phase I is so much more enjoyable than tearing open packets and adding water! I bought the SBD Taste of Summer cookbook and will make the Grilled Eggplant Rounds with Garlicky Cilantro Topping tonight and pair it with grilled chicken.

S: almonds
L: Sausage and bean soup
D: Turkey sausage and Braised kale with tomatoes and beans
