Smile How many beans on Phase I

I just made a huge pot of Great Northern Beans, and they are SOOOOO freaking there a limit (besides producing intestinal discomfort) on how much I can have? I see on the lists that it says to start with a half a cup...could my weight loss stall if I eat more? Thank you!!

I have eaten a whole can of beans at a time (3.5 servings), about 1 3/4 cup and not had a problem with it. Love my beans!

You can have as much beans as you can handle. On Phase 1, you eat until you feel satisfied. Just remember, though, that 3500 calories = 1 lb., so keep your calories below that.

Hey cottagebythesea,

We dont count calories or fat grams or carbs, but we should keep an eye really on how much fat we do eat, correct?

I saw in your post to keep our calories under 3500. I really have no clue as to how many I eat in a day. I reckon with the foods we do eat, it should not be close to that amount.

Are there ones who do eat that amount of calories in a day?

Cottage was just warning that it takes 3500 calories to gain a pound. Most of us eat in the 1200 to 1800 range. A half cup of kidney beans is 109 calories.

I just learned that we can have beans on Phase 1. I'm so excited! I'm thinking refried beans with ground turkey, white bean soup...

Now I just have to get to the grocery store!

I am thrilled(!!) about beans on this diet! Bean brownies are delish, pot 'o beans, chili, etc...I think, scratch that, I know that they are the reason I have enough self control to stick to this diet...err, new way of eating. )

I also just realized beans are allowed on Phase I. I love beans, and they are very handy if you keep a few cans in the cupboard. I think I will make a pot of chili in the next few days. Beware: canned kidney beans often have sugar added. Look at the label.

I am doing this at the reminder about beans!! I love beans, they help me SO much toward feeling full! When I read the title of this post, I went "we can't have beans on phase I....can we????"

Phoenix, read the Phase I Food List in the stickies. We can - and should - have beans and also dairy.
