to The Beach, Karen! And congratulations to both you and
It's not advisable to extend Phase 1 past the original 14 days, as your body needs the extra nutrients you've been depriving it of. Many of us do a Phase 1.5, where we may have only 1 grain and/or 1 fruit a day. When you do start Phase 2, introduce new foods gradually so you can keep track of how your body reacts to certain grains and fruit.
Good luck, and we hope to see you around often!
