I seem to be the master of phase one having gone back to it probably 8 times since 2004. The last time I did it was the easiest because I made a recipe book from recipes of this forum and a shopping list to go with the recipes. It was so nice not to be bored of the food. The SB Diet Book is a little too poshy for me, I just wanted easier to fix recipes.
Anyway, I probably use phase one as a crutch, but it does get rid of the cravings. The last time I did it I stayed on it for three weeks. The third week seemed to be a waste, gaining .5 pounds that week. Two weeks is the magic number for me, then I have learned I need to progress SLOWLY into phase two. It's so easy for me to go overboard on fruits.
Anyway, just curious....how many phase one repeaters are there?
