Mod Note: I changed the font, colour and size as it was very difficult to read. It is now set to the system default. Ruth xxx
I tried the SBD a LONG time ago when the first book first came out. I made it 3 days, but I was in college, and ate out every meal. It was very difficult to follow choosing from fast food menus (lived in the dorms), and back then NO dairy was allowed either.
I have read the recipes on this site and the updated food lists on Phase 1 and a lot of tips and tricks for phase 1. This diet seems like one I need to follow. I gave up sodas on Jan. 1, and I accidently grabbed my dh's cup the other day, and yuck! The coke burned and was WAY too sweet! YEA!! I am addicted to sugar and carbs and crave them constantly. I am hoping to be the same way with them after phase 1. I am planning to workout on my elliptical and do pilates and handweights for at least 30 minutes per day.
Here are my questions:
What is the maximum time to do Phase 1? It took me about 5 weeks to stop craving sodas. I am nervous that the 14 day period of Phase 1 will not be enough to control my cravings.
How will I feel? Will I be tired and have headaches, or will I feel refreshed and energized?
How much weight did you lose on phase 1? I have set my goal at 10 lbs during phase 1, but is this too much or not enough?
TIA for your help! I start tomorrow!
