What are your "must have's"?

TIA

Black beans
Refried black beans
reduced fat cheese
hummus
lots of fresh vegetables - red pepper and cauliflower for snacking. Fresh broccoli, zucchini, cabbage, eggplant for cooking, onion and garlic
canned no sugar added tomatoes (diced, sauce, crushed, paste)
Splenda
natural peanut butter
chicken broth
salsa
avocado
eggs
yogurt

These are actually the staples that I almost always have in my fridge.

I agree with Barb, beans are great. Read the ingredients label, some store brands, Food Lion, add sugar to their beans. Yuck I was wondering why they tasted so sweet. Check the ingredients on the refried black beans and make sure they are fat free. They sneak the fat in.

If I remember correctly, the biggy items on phase 1:
beans, both dried and canned.
eggs
skim milk
plain or vanilla nonfat or lowfat yogurt no sugar added, you can't find sugar free yogurt
cottage cheese
ricotta cheese-if you don't eat a lot of ricotta get the smallest container you can find and try out the recipes-some brands are smoother then others. Somepeople can't quite get past the texture for the ricotta cream desserts.
2 or 3 types of lettuce for variety or a couple bags of salad mix
lots of veggies

It's easy to go overboard the first trip to the store and come home with enough vegetables to feed a small army. It took me several weeks to get the right amounts.

Be careful to buy the foods you enjoy eating, only try the new, strange items one or a few at a time. I bought everything I could find in the store from the foods to enjoy list and wound up with many things I didn't know how to cook and didn't like at all.

Good luck, have fun shopping. Don't forget to read all your labels, they hide sugar and hydrogenated oils in some of the strangest items.

If you do the ricotta creme desserts in the food processor, they come out smooooth decadent and delicious - I didn't much care for them just hand mixed. The difference is awesome!

Question. I noticed Weezle mentioned FF Cool Whip. I checked their ingredients and there are hydrogenated oils in it -- isn't that bad?

Thanks....Atkins has worked well for me, but I get pretty bored with it, it's taken me a very long time for me to lose these 58 lbs...I'm embarrassed about that part of it.

I'm sooo looking forward to South Beach!!
