Has anyone stayed on Phase 1 longer than the recommended 2 weeks? I'm wondering if the good doctor wrote the diet for people who only had about 20 or 30 lb to lose. What about those of us who need to lose 100+? I lose weight very slowly to begin with and if I start adding back carbs now, it just might come to a dead halt or be so slow that I'll get discouraged and quit.
I have to admit that I'm dying to have something like oatmeal or multigrain toast for breakfast instead of eggs, eggs, EGGS. I don't like them much to begin with and no matter how I try to disguise them, they are still eggs.
For those who started SB with over 100 lb to lose, and have enjoyed success on it, I'd like to know if you stuck with Phase 1 longer than 2 weeks or did you switch to Phase 2? If so, which carbs did you add back in at first?
I'm feeling so good on Phase 1. Not hungry at all and with more energy than I've had since I was on Atkins but I would like more variety in my menus. I'm just so scared of changing what is working for me, allbeit slowly.
