Default On Plan Thread Feb 24 - Mar 2

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?

How's it going for you?

Of course feel free to share your daily on plan menu

Hi! I'm on day 2 (2 1/2, to be exact!) of Phase 1.

I've read the book but I'm still shaky on portion sizes, etc., so I'm happy to be critiqued if necessary.

B: 2 cups coffee with skim milk
1 scrambled egg
1 cup of roasted brussel sprouts (good thing I like them...for now)
S: 1 cup green beans
1 cheese stick
L: Grilled chicken with a huge side of roasted asparagus
S: Roasted chickpeas
D: Enormous green salad with deli ham, a little RF cheddar, cucumbers, black olives, hardboiled egg. More brussel sprouts.

Water, water, water, and more water.
Oh, and more coffee. I can't seem to cut that down much yet.

Your menu looks good to me, though you might want to add in dairy (in the form of milk or plain yogurt) helps with the headaches and 'blah' feelings.

Thanks RiverGirl! Last night was horrible...monster headache and achiness in my arms and back. Really miserable. I re-read all the stickies last night and realized I'm supposed to be having 2 cups dairy in addition to the cheese. Duh. Feeling slightly better today now that I've tweaked that.

B: 1/2 cup of milk, cheesecake cupcake from the recipe thread
S: 1 cup green beans, 1/2 cup roasted chickpeas
L: 2 c. spinach/lettuce mix with 2 slices turkey and 1 egg, some olives
S: 1 string cheese
D: Bowl of turkey chili with white and red kidney beans, peppers, onions, tomato sauce; 1 1/2 c. broccoli/cauliflower with RF cheddar

I'll have more milk and my beloved Fudgesicle later.

2 questions, though! Do beans count towards my veggies for the day? Also, I don't put dressing or oil/vinegar on my salads so I'm concerned I'm not getting enough "healthy fats." Unless I'm getting them from the dairy?

I don't feel or look like I've lost an ounce, but no trouble staying on track--no cravings, no trouble turning "bad" foods down. So that's something.

Technically the beans should be in addition to your daily veggies, however that being said, if I am a little low on my veggie count, but I have had a serving of beans/legumes, I don't worry about it too much.

As for getting your 'healthy fats' in, the olives that you put on your salad do count towards your healthy fats, you could always throw on some sunflower seeds or avocado as well.... plus, if memory serves cheese would also contain a small amount of healthy fats.

You are doing great so far, the headaches should pass soon, they usually only stick around for a handful of days.
