Could be. We eat a lot of pinto beans, black-eyed peas, etc., so I don't think about people not liking beans. Maybe natural peanut butter would work, too.

The difference between truth and fiction is that fiction has to make sense.

Hard to tell. Ihardly ever eat white potatoes. I just love baked sweet potatos with butter, and that's what I have when DH is having loaded baked potatoes. Occasionally, I'll eat some of the potatoes he fries in canola oil or something.

The truth is, we just have to try different things and recognize how we react to them. If I eat bread, I eat beans, too, and that seems to help.

Bossmare13, thanks so much about mentioning your cravings when you eat bread. I've found that to be true with me too. It doesn't matter what type of bread either. I'm better off with other carbs; even white potatoes don't affect me as badly. Is that true of you as well?

Thanks for all the support ladies!
I am doing MUCH better today.

Bossmare- It's true! I have virtually no terrible withdrawal symptoms (Yet! Fingers still crossed!)

Angel- The sushi with brown rice sounds amazing! I am going to have to try that once I get to phase 2!

Pam- I stuck with a sashimi platter which was delicious! And I've been able to keep the urge to binge at bay today (Although when my mother baked fresh chocolate chip cookies around lunch time today...I thought I was going to lose my mind...Had to district myself and keep away from the kitchen..Not easy!)

Carol- Sashimi is great! Can't get more SBD friendly than fresh raw fish! emoticon

Try sashimi next time. I have an allergy to horseradish and wasabi. Sashimi is a close cousin to sushi minus the calories on the rice that is unless you eat a side of it.

So you messed up one day, big deal. Tomorrow is a fresh start and no mistakes. Which can only lead to better you!

God determines who walks into your life....it's up to you to decide who you let walk away, who you let stay, and who you refuse to let go

Hello. My name is Pam and I am a binge-aholic.

Hey, Rachel. We all slip up. Allow that you are human and make mistakes and move on from it. Today is another, better, day.

Japanese food may be tricky. If you need nutrition info, try searching for menu items on The Daily Plate. Their database is quite extensive for prepared and restaurant foods.

www.thedailyplate.com/

Look for edamame (steamed soy bean pods) as your appetizer and chicken yakitori (grilled chicken kabobs with veggies) as your main course. Perhaps you can ask for fresh veggies or a green salad so you can get your 2 cups of vegetables.

Sushi isn't a bad choice for Phase 2. It would take several pieces to give you 1/2c of rice for a single grain serving.

Skip any of the katsu or tempura dishes which will be deep fried.

Sushi!
I enter my sushi into the food tracker by the individual type of fish usually. If I have yellowtail sashimi I try to estimate how many ounces, ect and just enter it that way. I've also compared to nutrition info online by searching for sushi to make sure I am on the right track. Spark has some sushi in the tracker already, but I think its just maki rolls and things like that. Also, I have a restaurant that will make rolls with brown rice if you request it so I guess on those as well. I have a friend who goes to a really nice restaurant that makes her sushi on a stick of cucumber instead of a slab of rice, but I've never asked for that( I don't go to really fancy places). My biggest downfall when eating sushi is not eating veggies, so a salad is a good idea. Also I always order edamame which is in the tracker. Yum!

I read your entire post, and I wouldn't call it crap.

I can help you with the first question, but not the second. You shouldn't go through the same withdrawal this time as the first time, because you haven't spent months or years building up your sugar dependency and tolerance level. One day is not a lifetime. You may go back to cravings again. I do when I eat too much bread. The good news is, you'll recognize them for what they are and you'll be better equipped to handle them.

As for the sushi, can't help you. I don't eat bait. But I'll be there's someone on here who can ballpark your choices for you. If not, there are plenty of websites that give you calories, carbs, etc., for different foods. Try doing a search for "sushi nutritional information" or something like that, and see if you don't come up with something.

Good luck, and don't despair. We're all entitled to fail once in a while.

I've been sticking with this program for a good two months or so and yesterday was the first day I really (and I mean REALLY) messed up.
I haven't been seeing that much progress on the scale, and after a particularly stressful day, in an emotional fit I surrendered all hope and binged on cookies, chocolates, fried rice, you name it.
I woke up this morning with a pounding headache, feeling the worse I have in ages.
I resolved to take it from phase 1 today and try my best not to let something like this happen again.
I however have two questions for you wonderfully helpful people :)

One: After my terrible episode will I experience as much sugar withdrawal for the next few days as I originally did when I started in January?
(Gosh, I sure hope not)

Secondly, I told my friend I would meet her for sushi today, and I realized this might trip me up a little as far as precise recordings on my food tracker. I'm probably going to order a sashimi platter with misu soup and possibly a small salad with ginger dressing. Would anyone be able to ballpark this for me? Any other phase 1 Japanese Restaurant tips?

If you read all that crap, I thank you greatly!

All the best!
-Rachel
