Default Question about Phase "1.5"

Hey all,
I've seen some post that they are in Phase 1.5. If Phase 2 means one allowed fruit and 1/2 cup whole grain or one slice bread each day, does Phase 1.5 mean just one of those?

I started Phase 1 on Monday, January 4. Technically I am due to be done with it on Sunday, January 17. However, I am going to extend Phase 1 through Tuesday, January 19 (with one caveat - I may cheat with wine as of the Sunday). We are going on vacation President's Day weekend, and I'm not sure I"ll be able to add carbs back in responsibly - i.e. not sure we'll be eating places that will have whole grains available. We'll be back on that Tuesday and I think it might just be easier for me to stick to Phas 1 through then.

Then - I was considering doing a "1.5" I've realized that I have to be VERY careful with the carbs. Am I right about what a Phase 1.5 is?

I added in oatmeal every day for week one of Phase II. Added in one fruit on the second week (in addition to the oatmeal). Added in a second fruit or grain later. I never felt the need to add more after that. I was satisfied and continued to lose until I reached my goal weight. Now that I'm on maintenance I really just eat the same, with an occasional indulgence.
