I don't think there is a limit on cheese. Just that it is LF or FF. I know like Barb0522 said beans are limited to 1/3-1/2 cup servings but I do not see where it says if it is once a day or not. Hope this helps!
God is big, so we expect him to speak with the voice of thunder or lightning or earthquake or fire. But God often expresses his powerful love in gentle whispers. Listen for God's whispers as well as his shouts.
I appreciate your answers. It is so nice to be able to gain insight into SBD through all of you!
So lf & ff cheese you can eat unlimited amounts? Not that I plan on gorging my self on cheese, but I am wondering if anybody has noticed that they lose weight slower if they eat a certain amount of cheese. I have been eating part-skim string cheese 2-3x/day.
Also, regarding the beans... I don't believe that I saw servings per day. Has anybody noticed if their weight loss has slowed when they eat beans?
When I was on Phase 1, I made the white chili recipe which is on our recipe forum. I ate probably 2 cups of beans a day for about 4 days of Phase1 and I didn't notice a weight loss slowness.
Just remember you need to get in your veggies (I believe recommended is 4 cups/day?) but cheese can definitely add a bit of yumminess to quite a bit of things. I wouldn't overdo it though, just try to keep it reasonable. String cheese 2-3 times a day does seem reasonable to me.
You can't out-exercise poor eating habits.
Here's my 2 cents....Don't become so concerned about serving and portion sizes that you leave yourself hungry. Eat enough so that you are satisfied (not overfull). If you are cutting portion sizes too much and feel hungry all the time, the chance of staying committed to the eating plan diminish. Remember, this is a plan for life and being hungry is not in that plan...at least not mine, anyway.
Never be afraid to try something new.
Remember.... Amateurs built the ark,
Professionals built the Titanic.
