I just started Phase 2 a few days ago and I quickly learned that I need to really focus on avoiding the "OMG CARBS" mentality. I bake my own bread, so I made a 100% whole wheat loaf and got really excited about it, so I ate two slices on day 1 plus a piece of fruit. Holy moly that was a lot for me! I was so energized I could barely sleep that night....and the fruit was so sweet!
When it comes to fruit, I learned to research and keep track of the sugar grams in different fruits...they ended up too sweet for my liking after Phase 1, especially bananas. Also, limit yourself to one whole grain serving a day for as long as you possibly can! It's hard...really, really hard lol....but for me I know it's really necessary. I have a serious problem with simple carbs, so my goal is to defeat their hold on me. Phase 1 was easy compared to this!
Best of luck and if you'd like to share tips with each other, send me a message! I'm always looking for a support group.
