Default On Plan Thread - Week of Oct. 18

It's time for a new week of talking On-Plan! This is the place for South Beach meal plan and food support, encouragement and questions.

Anyone, from any phase (1, 1.5, 2, 3, etc.) can post, and those who are new to 3FC are especially encouraged to do so!
This thread is for questions, sharing advice and strategies, and encouraging each other to stay on plan. It is not for chatting about daily life unrelated to this topic. Members have indicated that they would like to have chatting remain in the Daily Thread, so any posts that are off topic or chatty will be moved by the mods to the Daily.

Because people from different parts of the plan are posting here, it'll help everyone if you indicate what phase you're in when you post. Thanks!
While you may certainly find, from time to time, the need to ask for help after going off plan, remember that this thread is about staying on plan. When you share details of off plan foods you've eaten, it can upset, tempt, and otherwise frustrate other members, so please keep these details to a minimum.

So, share with us: How are you staying on plan this week?

Back to Phase 1 for me for a bit. I've been having too many cravings for bready sweets and I think I have been putting too many grains in my daily menus because I'm plateauing I guess 7 months without a stall isn't too bad.

-

1: greek yogurt w/ cinnamon
2: greek salad, hardboiled egg
3: some bell peppers and hummus, string cheese
4: spicy shrimp saute, served over spinach instead of rice
5: espresso pots de creme (p 1 recipe from SB cookbook)

exercise:didn't happen today, allergies laid me out flat.

Hey FO - are you not posting your veggies? You didn't include any on your list...

I was off plan yesterday. I was at an event in the middle of nowhere for 11 hours and mostly what they had available was carby/fatty stuff. I definitely could have done better. Oh well, it's a new week.

B - coffee with 1% milk
Walk, yoga
Mediterranean omelet with spinach, sundried tomatoes, light feta; 2 veggie sausages, glass of low sodium vegetable juice
L - Lentil soup with orange pepper, mushrooms, carrots, celery, tomatoes (cleaning out the fridge!), with a green salad, brewed white tea
S- Pepper strips & broccoli florets with spicy hummus
S2 - celery with Laughing Cow light cheese
D - Eggplant lasagna (with ricotta and cottage cheese), tomato/cucumber salad
dessert - 1/2 honeycrisp apple with some raw walnuts

Okay...today was weigh in day for me....drum roll please....188.8!!! Do the happy dance!! I was getting SO frustrated with NOT being able to get out of the 190's....so being in the 180's is a HUGE deal to me right now. I felt like they were being SO elusive...darn scale!

So, this weekend I went to a bbq at the in-laws. Bratwursts....and here's the sides they had....potato salad, potato chips, macaroni salad and baked beans!! Ugh!! lol So...I loaded up on Brats, with LOTS of grilled onions and sauerkraut w/ mustard on top. Then they brought out apple crisp dessert. I chose water....luckily I'm not a huge fan of baked apples, so it wasn't too bad. It was really hard to pass up the macaroni salad though, it looked SO good!! So, there's my kudos for the weekend

Hope you all have a fabulous, ON PLAN Monday!!!

Hi, I'm pretty new. Phase 1. Are the meal plans you're posting what you're eating today, or everyday this week, or what you ate already?

Jyoyo78 - Congrats! See, all of your hard work has paid off. I can identify with you as I got out of the 290's this morning. It's so nice to see the 80's and well worth the effort.

Spoon flipper....I think some people post what they plan to eat for the day. But, since I never really know for sure....I always post what I ate the day before. Except that I'm really bad at keeping good track on weekends...so mine only end up being for Mon-Fri when I'm at work...which is where my little food log spreadsheet is

Hi, I've been doing P1 for about a week and I'm getting a little tired of a hunk of meat on my plate. Any ideas for something different?

Yesterday:
B: 1 egg
L: teri-yaki chicken, brocolli,
D: carrots and pretzels

Just Dance -

first, carrots and pretzels are not phase 1 friendly You also need to make sure the teriyaki chicken doesn't have added sugar, as most teriyaki marinades have a lot of sugar in them.

second, there is a recipe section for phase 1 meal ideas that is fantastic. i highly suggest checking it out.

Have you read the book? it stresses the importance of vegetables (4.5 cups daily) and regular meal eating. Honestly, your menu doesn't look like it would give you enough calories to thrive on. Cutting your calories too low is going to be counterproductive to your weight loss. If you haven't read it, I suggest doing so. The library is a great resource in checking out the most recent copy and the different cookbooks.

Thanks, Zeffryn, for the input. I forgot that carrots aren't in P1, the pretzels were me falling off the wagon (thunk). I think I'm eating enough, my portions, especially of vegies, are good.

I do need to reread the book. It's strange that hummus and beans are in P1 but carrots are not.
