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.

People in different phases of South Beach post here so it will 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?

Wt: 172.0 - I think I may be approaching TOM?
B: 1/2 banana with PB pre-gym
Sn: Cheese slice & V8 post gym
L: Break-free with spinach, tomato, and RF old cheddar
Sn: Veggies with 2T hummus, Skinny latte
S: Vegetable soup at home, and I'll get some lettuce wraps at the gastropub
Ex: 60 minute BodyCombat class

I'm going to a class function tonight at a gastropub. I will probably have a couple of drinks. Should I even try to resist the tapas? Should I set a limit for myself? Should I adjust my meal plan for the day in anticipation for an off-plan evening (eg: skip dinner)? Thoughts appreciated!

Ok, I've been pretty off plan for the past few days and the scale and my body shows it. I feel terrible physically.

We're going on a picnic today - any ideas for food that is easily packed and not so bad?

Zeff, you could make sandwiches in whole wheat pita pockets, or wrap lean roast beef, turkey or ham with lowfat cheese around celery sticks. Raw veggies w/hummus or ranch dressing are always good to-go foods, too. Some other suggestions would be fruit, yogurt, string cheese, nuts.

How about making a whole wheat pasta salad loaded with veggies, or a quinoa or whole wheat couscous salad?

Taco bake is also good cold and could easily be packed for a picnic lunch.

And don't forget deviled eggs! And, oh! Gazpacho!

ShelfLife, I'm sure there will be on-plan choices on the tapas menu. I would think skipping dinner to make up for it could be a bad idea--if you go to the pub hungry you are more likely to make unfortunate choices.

Zef-My favorite picnic snack is green beans sauteed in olive oil and then dressed with lemon. They are super tasty cold!

B-Smoothie
L-another smoothie and some burnt broccoli
D-Quinoa risotto w/broccoli, chicken, and bell peppers

Gonna do my best to exercise today, after 2 days off in a row (Yay! Did it)

Another off plan day for me. My friend bought mini ice cream chocolate lolly things round last night as a thank you for cooking her dinner. They've been in the freezer since last night and I've eaten 3 (whoops) of them since then. I am terrible, I can't have things like that in the house. I've thrown them in the bin, which is a terrible waste. I thought about taking them to the local train station and giving them to the homeless people, but it is sub zero outside and ice cream isn't the best thing in that weather. Bin it is!

Tomorrow i'll be back on phase 1 + an apple a day. Hopefully I can get back on the wagon and quickly...

PHG - are you getting your 4.5 cups of veggies and just not listing them? Remember vegetable juice shouldn't replace more than 1 serving of your veggies per day
