Can someone break down the prep phase. Not really clear on what to do during the 3 day prep phase to start everything.

So excited to find this forum!! I've been on the program for 3 weeks now and today I weighed in down 18lbs from my starting weight. I travel a lot and find it hard to pack easy to eat lunches on the go. Any ideas? I have the cookbook and have tried a lot of the recipes, my husband has been so supportive (he's the cook). I need some ideas for when I'm on the go! I used to be a meal skipper because of this and don't want to fall back into that bad habit!!

I don't usually take food with me in the car. Sometimes, if I know I will be in a place where I have no viable food options, I will take a protein supplement bar and/or shake with me and have that as a meal replacement.

But my main solution to eating on the go is to go through the drive-thru of Pollo Tropical and order the grilled boneless chicken breast meal with two side salads - with dressing on the side - in place of the rice and beans. They also offer brown rice as a side. The meal comes with two breasts. Usually I save one of the breasts for later (if they are both big). But sometimes they are small and I eat both for lunch.

It was never really fully explained to me because I do not go to QWLC. But I know that it involved (1) certain raw green veggies, (2) protein and (3) either a small or 1/2 orange. I'm sure the approved veggies are one that have a low glycemic index. So peas would be out. I'm not sure which other veggies are off limits. Another thing I'm not sure about is the quantity of protein. It seems like it was not as limited as the regular plan. But I don't know what the limit was. Sorry I couldn't be more help. Perhaps some of the actual members of QWLC can answer your question better.

The three days prep for me was as follows:
Breakfast two eggs
Snack- half An orange
Lunch-unlimited RAW green salad veggies (spinach, zucchini, celery, cucumbers),unlimited protein-chicken, shrimp, fish
Snack- another half an orange
Dinner- same as lunch

If you are still hungry you can eat more veggies or protein. Also you are allowed to use Italian dressing, NO balsamic, but it has to be under 32 calories a serving. Boathouse farms makes a good one.

This is it for three days! You can used mrs. Dash and Morton's light salt to season. No additional sodium or sugar based seasonings.

Hope that helps!!

I'm new to this forum and it has been a few years since I was on the qwlc diet. I cannot remember the portion sizes for vegetables and proteins. Does anyone have that??

Thanks so much!

I am on day 2 of the prep phase and so far so good. I am eating 2 oranges a day and reading through this forum, I think that maybe wrong! But, I havent gotten my supplements yet so maybe it will all work itself out!

So any documentation anyone has from one of the centers would be great!

Thanks

I'm on a losing streak. I went for a weigh in on Monday and lost 1lb since Saturday, which is unheard of for me on the veggie plan.

I wish I could be more helpful to those who ask questions about the plan. The veggie plan is different in both the prep and losing phases and I don't want to lead anyone astray.

I can say that onions, peas, carrots and corn are not allowed on the plan. Surprisingly pears are not either, but watermelon is allowed. Yum. My new love is spaghetti squash, which is allowed. To me, it's rich and creamy without butter.

Anyway, I'm off to do a workout.

I love spaghetti squash! Have you tried making cauliflower "rice"?

Default Hello QWLC Peeps

I want to write to say hello. I am trying qwlc independent of the center. Right now is not a great time to spend $1000. Although anything that works is worth 10 times that, I, along with many others, have spent $30 here, $150 there for one program or plan or another then later wonder why did I do that?

So, I am going it alone, and so far modifying it, but using the principles. Please feel free to comment or make suggestions.
I don't weigh myself on a traditional scale because it totally messes with my head and emotions: the number not moving, the number dictating a guaranteed bad day. I have a quantum scale that shows plus or minus from a start weight. The last time I "reset" it was around the beginning of May. At the time I was participating in a very strenuous boot camp 5 mornings a week at 5 am and trying to eat clean. From that reset (like 0) I have stayed around -7.6. That was May.
Any way, fast forward, the week of Thanksgiving I was around -8.0 and today (Wednesday) I was -11.6, so 3.6 pounds from Friday to Wednesday. Water weight, whatever, I don't care, I am HAPPY. I mean that scale barely moved for more than 5 months.
I have done PREP days so to speak. However, I have had diet coke, although less, and low carb salad dressing, and today more than the allowed supplements.
For shakes, I have had atkins, because there are about 10 still in my house. For bars, I have tried Atkins, South beach, and thanks to to Joe, Pure Protein today which was yummy.
To be fair, I am probably not "doing" qwlc, maybe working into it. But I have been following some of the guides, such as not mixing proteins, no dairy, 1 protein plus veggies for lunch and dinner. Also, I take vitamins and ordered one of their supplements on ebay, but it has not come yet.
I am excited. My big 40 is Monday and I think I can get away with wearing size 16 jeans. Happy Dance!!! (My "short" story is my high was 245 in the late 90's, I completed a 500 calorie a day liquid fast-medically supervised- to get down to 155 in 1999, I hovered at a high of 184, but usually 165 for several years, climbed over 200 between 2007 and 2010, lost about 20 pounds for my wedding, then gained I guess 30 in my first year of marriage-2010-2011)

If you understand doing it on the cheap and diet coke addiction, any ideas or suggestions are welcome
