Wink New to SB-need help

This is my third day on SB. I'm on vacation. Seems like I'm spending lots of time in the kitchen cutting vegetables. I have so many questions. Here are three:
Can I use soy cheese (it's processed)in Phase 1?
After dinner dessert, can I have a snack, or is that it?
Do Buddies help a lot?

Welcome and good luck. I will leave others to answer your questions, but dont go hungry.

Here's the new rule. Break the wine glass and fall in to the glass blower's breath.

Welcome Carol28.
Soy cheese is OK on Phase I.
If you're hungry, have an evening snack.
Buddies definitely DO help and this is the place to give and get support to others.
Read all the FAQ stickies and join us on the daily chat.
Do you have the book?
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?

Thank you so much for your responses. I made the muffin quiches with soy cheese and then did not know if I could eat them, so I froze them until I could find out. Out they come. I hope they are good.
Now that I know I can have an evening snack, I probably won't want one. I just hated not being allowed one.
I used a marinade for steaks last night that was posted-lime, dijon, garlic. Fabulous! I'm so happy to have recipes. I haven't had steak in this house in years.
I'd love to have a buddy.

ps Yes, I do have the book. I do not have the cook book. The recipes online seem to be great!

Talking new too :)

Hi, Carol!

I'd be happy to buddy up with you! Today is my 4th day on Phase 1 and like you, I hope I'm doing it right. It all feels so strange to me...I've never done a low-carb diet. I always counted calories and fats (and used dern near all of them on carbs) but got to the point I was diet resistant from all the years of yo-yoing and insulin resistant.

I have got to lose weight...I'm carrying just way to much on my frame and I'm tired of all the aches and pains from it. I'm having to take a statin drug for my cholesterol and I sure wish I could get rid of that expense every month!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this works for me The book was so sensible and described me perfectly. I had just about given up on ever being able to lose weight until a friend suggested SB to me.

Nice to meet you and good luck to us both!

Phase 1, Week 1
