Default Help, I just arrived at the beach!!!

I'm so confused! I've read the book and I am ready to jump in, but I have questions. Some things just don't make sense. Can we or can't we have mayo? It's not on the list but it's in the recipes. The same with avacado, sour cream, and a few others. What do we do?
I really want to be good and have this diet work. My son is getting married in November and I would like to be several pounds thinner.
Can some one help me please????
Thanks!

Tooste

Hi!

Welcome aboard! I used Mayo. Just keep checking labels for sugar - that's the no no. Also reduced fat is better than the regular. good luck. there's lots of support here!

I'm pretty sure that any fish is ok, and I would think that sour cream would be like cheese and use the low fat kind. I use mayo for my tuna to. You just have to. Good luck Julie

Wink To help you

Any fish is fine, but NO breading or frying.
Mayo is okay as well, but watch portions.
Keep things FF and SF.
Use spray I can't Believe It's Not Butter.
Use low glycemic index foods.
Good Luck
Lady

Default Thanks

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!
Made it through the first day ! Had a hamburger for dinner WITHOUT KETCHUP but I used chopped tomatoes instead. Not too bad. I'm really trying and hoping that this site will give me the inspiration that I need.

Kisses to you all!!!

As you look through the book, try to remember that in Phase 1 you are not allowed any dairy products (pg 127).When you do see a dairy product that is an ingredient in one of the P1 recipes, keep those foods to a minimal amount. There are many little inconsistencies throughout the book, so just use your best judgement.

Also the section on "Good Fats, Bad Fats" explains about the mayo, avocado (which have good fats).
