I've decided to try SBD again. The first time I tried it, I barely lasted through Phase 1, but in the few days that I did stay on the diet I lost 5 pounds. I've been struggling with losing weight the past year through diet pills on and off and various diets. I've managed to keep off 10 pounds, which is a huge thing for me. Despite that, I have a long way to go. I'm currently 277 with no goal weight in mind. I just know that I have to lose weight. I'm from a family full of heart problems and being this big scares me when I actually allow myself to think about it.
I've just started my first year of nursing school and this little voice in the back of my head is always saying "How can you take care of your patients if you can't take care of yourself?" By the time I graduate in 2014, I'd like to have reached at least 160, a goal I consider incredibly achievable.
My question is: Can you share with me grocery lists of items to get to start Phase 1? Keeping in mind that I really only have two days a week that I can actually do any cooking.. I know breakfast is a very important thing, but I rarely have time. I need ideas for incredibly fast breakfast meals and lunches that can easily be thrown in my lunchbox. The last time I started this diet, I realized that sweet foods are easily replaceable, but I had such a hard time avoiding potato chips. Are there any alternatives that you have found that help satisfy that craving?
Your help is greatly appreciated!
