Default What is phase 1.5?

I'm in my second week on phase 1, and already starting to get nervous about phase two. In my last try on this diet in the spring, phase 2 really stalled me, and I eventually went totally off the diet after being so good for so long and seeing no results on the scale. Can someone give me an idea what it's about? thank you all!

Your story sounds just like mine!! I did well onP1, but my progress went downhill after adding back in foods-I lost control. So here I am re-starting P1,too. Best of luck to us both!

Ditto. Phase II totally stalled me. Restarted on P1 today. Hopefully I will see some movement!

Me too!!!! I also had some off plan foods at around a friend's wedding which set me off. Not giving up though, just starting over.

I feel much better when I'm eating this way, and I'm afraid
to start adding sugars back in! Good luck to you you guys- I
know we can all do it!

Phase I.5 is when you add things back after Phase I slowly.

I'm starting my 4th week of phase one and guess what, after the first two weeks, my weight has remained the same and I haven't even started phase two yet! I'm holding strong though and except for one slip with too much on plan dessert, I have stayed true to phase one (well except for missing some snacks and a meal here or there). I just came home from the grocery store and did buy two apples and a small container of rasberries. Not sure if I will end up eating them this week or not. We'll see.

I think what stalled me for a whole week was jumping into Phase 2 too quickly while my body adjusted. So when I scaled back to Phase 1, and added one thing at a time, the scale was moving again. So while I am careful with fruit and milk, I only allow myself 1 serving of the homemade whole wheat bread I've made, and that's as far as I've gotten with Phase 2.

Didn't know it was called Phase 1.5
So usually 1 serving of milk, 1 bread serving and maybe some fruit. I need to up my veggies more but so far, this is working fabulously

Lamay, why are you still on P1? I have more to lose for my height than you and I left Phase I after 2 weeks. Get on the Phase 2 wagon so there are no more slips.

I did 3 weeks of phase 1 and didn't loose much if anything that 3rd week either.

Most people seem to slow down or stall during their 3rd and 4th weeks on plan whether they move into phase 2 or not. My theory is that our bodies need to 'catch up'. The timing is unfortunate though because phase 2 gets blamed for what would most likely have happened anyway.

If you are Type A Personality, it might help to track your food and keep a little record of what you're eating to track down patterns that might delay or stall you a little bit. Tracking has been invaluable for me to go back, see what I did that produced a result I didn't like!

With that being said, you're so close to your goal and (ideal?) body weight for your height, that perhaps your body is being stubborn, give it some time and patience Don't be discouraged, you're working towards making this a lifetime change in the way you see and eat food, with the added bonus of a little weight loss on the side
