Can anyone give examples of foods that are permitted on Phase 1.5?

1.5 is an unofficial phase used by many here. It's what we call the transition from Phase 1 to Phase 2 when you slowly and carefully add fruit and grains back into your diet. Some of us have found that Phase 1.5 is were we end up either because we are extra sensitive to grains or to fruit. So 1.5 can be anything on the Phase 2 list.

1.5 is a great time for you to start learning what works for your body. What foods in combination with other foods work best? Is time of day an issue for you (some people can;t have grains in the morning, some at night, others have no such issues).

One of the best things about South Beach is really learning the unique factors that work best for your body.

What a good example - Phase 1.5--I wish I had more time to research these things.

I feel like I'm in Phase 1.5.4 (Phase 1.5 day 4)

tee hee hee

A good example in the first week after completing Phase I would be to add a serving of fruit once a day. The following week, keep the fruit, but add a grain. Just don't add everything all at once. That way you can track what foods give you cravings and how much you can eat and still lose.
