On Plan Thread Feb 10 - 16

  • It's time for a new week of talking On-Plan! This is the place for South Beach meal plan and food support, encouragement and questions.

    Anyone, from any phase (1, 1.5, 2, 3, etc.) can post, and those who are new to 3FC are especially encouraged to do so!

    This thread is for questions, sharing advice and strategies, and encouraging each other to stay on plan. It is not for chatting about daily life unrelated to this topic. Members have indicated that they would like to have chatting remain in the Daily Thread, so any posts that are off topic or chatty will be moved by the mods to the Daily.

    People in different phases of South Beach post here so it will help everyone if you indicate what phase you're in when you post. Thanks!

    While you may certainly find, from time to time, the need to ask for help after going off plan, remember that this thread is about staying on plan. When you share details of off plan foods you've eaten, it can upset, tempt, and otherwise frustrate other members, so please keep these details to a minimum.

    So, share with us: How are you staying on plan this week?

    How's it going for you?

    Of course feel free to share your daily on plan menu

  • Rivergirl looks lonely in here! I haven't been perfect (soup bar, anyone?), but doing okay. I've made ham and cheese omelettes for breakfast, leftover jambalaya for lunch, and mexican crockpot for supper. CHeesesticks as needed!
  • Hi RiverGirl! it IS lonely in here...

    I'm not even going to explain what has been going on with me.
    I have issues
    Working through them though hopefully.

    Along those lines, I have been doing a LOT of reading. I'm all stocked up on recipes to try (mostly vegan, though I am not vegan) and I'm all inspired about exercise due to books such as The Exercise Cure (Dr. Jordan Metzl) and Ultrametabolism (Dr. Mark Hyman).

    Yesterday:
    Phase 2
    B - coffee with us almond milk. Chia protein pudding.
    L - Shirataki noodles with veggie meatballs and marinara sauce
    S - Red bell pepper with Greek yogurt/cucumber/dill/garlic
    D - Big stirfry of tofu, broccoli and asparagus
    dessert - rooibos red tea with us almond milk, handful of cacao nibs and almonds, navel orange

    Veggies: ~4.5 cups

    Today:
    Phase 2
    B - coffee with us almond milk. Later, yerba mate with us almond milk.
    Exercise: Jogging (C25K Week 8) - 28'
    Flourless almond muffins with wild blueberries (1 serving almonds), 1 veggie sausage
    L - Veggie meatballs and marinara sauce WITH 1 sauteed red bell pepper added to sauce - served over zucchini noodles.
    S - Quest bar on the run
    Exercise again: Yoga class
    D - Pan-fried sustainable-wild-product of USA-etc Whiting filet, cauliflower salad with cumin, something green...
    dessert - Greek yogurt

    Veggies: ~4.5 cups

    I'm using too many "fake meat" products - am trying to get away from them in general but I have quite a stockpile that I want to use up first. I do have to say that the veggie meatballs I found are insanely delicious... I think I will always have the odd processed veggie product (veggie pepperoni and the meatballs spring to mind) but I don't want to rely on highly processed soy and gluten.
