If you've already done a proper P1, then there is no reason to go back there again. Just get back with the P1.5 or 2 and keep going. You'll be fine. Some of us choose go back to P1 for a few days if we're stuck on a plateau to shake things up, but its really not something you must do.

thanks for the responses. I think I'll probably do phase 1.5, and if I have issues I'll go back to phase 1 for a bit.. :)

I'm not a person who feels it's necessary to go back to phase one every time you get off plan unless it is for an extended period with weight gains and return of cravings. You might try a day or two and see if that is enough but 2 weeks? No.

From what I understand an infection can cause higher blood sugars so being sick is going to cause a problem even if you could eat "perfect".

I would most likely go back to where I was when I got sick. I guess you could go back to ph 1 if you feel like it.

Take care of yourself.

hi all! Sorry I haven't been around this past week... DH,DD, and I have all been sick.. first started with sinus infection for me, DH and DD had colds, then on top of that, we all got the stomach flu for 2 days... ugh...

anyway, I have't followed the diet, just ate what would stay down. I'm still down 3 pounds. yay!

my tummy seems to be back to normal now, but my blood sugars are still a bit out of whack (high fasting in morning, but good the rest of day). Should I start back on phase 1? I had moved to phase 1.5, but I don't know how my body will react to any added carbs. I think that's what screwed up my sugars while sick. I was eating more carbs than I would have, as that is what my body would keep down (as in dry cheerios, and some homemade noodle soup). any suggestions?
