Default On Plan Thread: November 1-Nov. 7

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?

Hi! My boyfriend and I are starting Phase 1 tomorrow. I went grocery shopping today and got all the food I think we will need and have made a food plan for this week. He has about 15 lbs to lose and I have about 25 lbs to lose. I'm looking forward to starting South Beach and making the life style changes.

The only thing that I am worried about is my BF does not like eggs or cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese, and a variety of veggies. I have lunch and dinner for us covered, but I'm worried about what he will eat for breakfast. I've read about the mock french toast and pancake recipes, but I'm wandering if there are any other breakfast ideas that don't have eggs in them?

Thank you so much for your help! We're looking forward to staying on plan this week!

Hi, everyone! Busy weekend, so I haven't been around much.

I have however stayed on plan. I am on Day 5 of Phase 1.

Getting a little better every day. I went to Outback last night and had no bread, a salad, the ahi tuna appetizer and a side of broccoli and it was great. I felt satisfied as if I had not missed anything!

My birthday is this Friday. I plan to stay OP Friday but splurge a little (nothing crazy) Saturday. I will definitely be off plan. Since that point, I will be at Day 10, should I just pick back up with Day 11 or start all over again? Thanks for any advice you guys may have.

Welcome, Star! A lot of non-egg eaters seem to eat non-breakfast foods for breakfast during phase 1. Best of luck to you and your boyfriend!

Monday, November 1

I am on Phase II but today is a Phase I eating day because I haven't gone to the store for fruits.

Meat (2)
Fish (2)
Water (8 cups)
Peanuts (10)

I will begin my third month on South Beach on November 5 and I think I've gotten the hang of things by eating right and blogging on my feelings and thoughts.

Over the last few days I was reading all the South Beach diet threads on here and now decided to register so I could join in :-)
My boyfriend and me started the SBD together. Today we are on day 5. I have lost 4.2lbs and are amazed by that! I am loving the SBD as I feel like I can eat and I am not hungry and don't have to count cals etc.

So a big hello from London to all of you :-)

Hello Daisy and Starstup - welcome and good luck with SBD. I hope you'll end up loving it as much as I do, South Beach has really changed the way I think about food.

Happy Birthday in advance, Randi! November 5 is a great day to be born. That was my father's birthday, too. I would try not to go overboard with the birthday celebration and then go right back on plan after the celebration, but I've always been able to get right back on plan with little trouble. Many of our regulars would advise you to do a totally clean phase 1 - either skip the off plan birthday treats or restart phase 1 afterward. Good luck to you whatever you decide to do.

Here's my plan for the day:
Phase 2

B: vanilla yogurt and chia seeds, hot tea, and a can of V8
S: red pepper slices and hummus
L: cabbage & bean casserole, apple
"JIC" mtg snack - almonds
D: deep dish Italian pie, SF jello if I "need" it
I'll have a milky beverage sometime this afternoon or evening, too.

Exercise: wii fit and/or hooping. I've got a couple of meetings after school so I don't expect to be home before dark - no walk today.
