Phase 1.5 is a gradual return to a higher carb level but they are still good carbs so you won't be eating all that much different than you are eating now. You will just be adding a new food every few days while seeing if it's a trigger or not.

It really isn't recommended to stay on phase 1 longer than 2 weeks unless you have 100 pounds to lose. Most people figure that they lost so well in phase 1, that if they extend it, they will continue with the higher loss. It doesn't work that way unfortunately. Basically most folks settle into a normal weight loss pattern that varies (depending on individual, amount to lose) from anywhere up to 2 lbs a week which is considered the norm (1-2 lbs). Thing is you can do a modified phase 2 (you will see us use the term phase 1.5) that allows you to slowly incorporate fruits and grains/carbs back into the diet. So you may do a couple days of phase 2 rotated in with phase 1 type eating days. Or some variation...

You really don't want to be missing out on food groups such as fruit.

Hi all, I have been off and on Spark People for a while and have finally stumbled onto something that's working for me: south beach diet! Lost 4 pounds the first week and found it really 'doable'. Which brings me to my question: I have the feeling if the second week goes well, I will want to stay on phase 1 a little longer. I know this is not the plan, but am wondering if anybody has done this, and how did it work for them? Thanks!!
