Thanks for the suggestions! I love cabbage, so I'm going to try that for next week!
Yes, I am getting the phone calls, and I do find it motivating to get that call every day to remind me to stay focused!

MELAMON, there are only 2 days where you cannot have carbs. Hang in there and Phase 3 will start soon. Remember no starches or fruits on Phase 3. Eat those veggies and drink plenty of water. When you feel the need for a carb, stuff a veggie in your mouth. Cucumbers are my go-to veggies, as well as carrots. But carrots are not allowed in Phase 2. If you like cabbage, steam up some chunks and indulge yourself if you get hungry.

Does anyone else have any helpful suggestions?

Here is fine with me. I am now getting daily phone messages from Haley Pomroy. Anyone else receiving them? Do you think they are helpful?

I am going into Phase 2 tomorrow. That's the one that I find the most difficult. I bought some thin steaks to saute in our new non-stick pans and also some turkey bacon. Today I am making some stuffed peppers as well. That's stuffed peppers sans the egg and breadcrumbs. Yes, it can be done.

How is everyone else doing?

So I'm doing a cleanse week with some intense exercise before I jump into my next FMD round next week. I guess it's my own version of The Burn detoxes. I'm using bits of it but need to shape it to me.

Has anyone used one of Haylie's cleanses to jumpstart their FMD round? Slow and steady is not changing my body and I think I need something pretty drastic to make the scale/inches move. I want a healthy, fast metabolism, so I'm trying to keep my food clean with tons of vegetables and protein.

Any other ideas that have worked for you? I know that bumping up my water intake has helped in the past, too.

Kind of follow the same plan?

Sounds like a lot of us hate Phase Two. BUT..........we can do ANYTHING for 48 hours, right??
We appreciate Phase three so much more because of Phase 2!

I did two cycles of FMD a couple of years ago with great success, over 15 lbs lost. I thought I was just skipping a third cycle because of traveling but I have had a hard time getting motivated to get back on FMD. Regained about 7 lbs over two years. Now I am about 8 lbs from goal and I'm finally back to FMD; this is my second week and I'm doing well even though I was a bit wobbly at lunch today - gave in to a few tortilla chips. No recriminations though; I'm just moving forward. I know perfection isn't possible although I've been doing really well. Lost nearly 3 lbs last week and hoping for the same this week.

Where are you now in your goals? How many sessions of FMD do you think you'll need to complete to get there?

I'm wondering about my weight goals and the weight that many of you have lost the first and subsequent times you've done this. I'm not really far from my goal but the last 20 are the hardest, right? I'm just wondering how effective this will be this time around and how long I'll have to do it.

What is your experience with maintenance? Do adding dairy & wheat back in the diet set you back or irritate your stomach?

Lots of questions. Good luck to all!

What appealed to me about the FMD was that it seems to be something that I can do for a lifetime. I had sworn off ever doing any more diets, exercise torture or food deprivation programs. My plan was to make healthy lifestyle changes as I learned what worked for me; however, when I found out about FMD, it made sense, and it didn't seem burdensome so I tried it out. Phase 3 is my absolute favorite also. I tend to get the hungriest between meals on phase 1 (I wonder if I am eating enough). Phase 2 is not as fun, but I don't get hungry.

I am trying to organic but it is so costly.
I use eggbeaters for breakfast in phase 2. Makes it so much simpler for me.
I buy a roasted chicken from the store. This is my lunch, sometimes supper, for 3-4 days.
Find the breast is 2 days at 4 oz, and leg/thigh 2 days. Works out pretty good.
I dislike cooking for my self so this is really for me.
Have been on FMD now almost 3 months and lost almost 30#.

Starting up again this week. After dabbling in this a bit, this is my first full session.

I'm really loving fruit and grains! It's really true that it affects your mood & hormones. I'm going to be as strict as possible in doing both the diet and exercise. I really want to do the exercise as prescribed because I think you either subscribe to the hormonal cycle theory or you don't. The exercise type is part of it. I shrugged it off before & want to make that part of this cycle.

Good luck to all & update us on what you're doing.

Phase 2 is rough for sure. I add some low glycemic fruit like grapefruit or berries at lunch per the diabetic instructions and that helps. I have lost 19.4 pounds since starting the FMD on February 15. I have PCOS which makes weight loss tougher for me but this has definitely been successful.

I started the FMD about two weeks ago and have lost about 5 pounds. I am very happy with it, since nothing I've tried in the past gave me any results. My least favorite phase is Phase 2, but I can get through it with nice, big turkey bacon and egg white veggie omelets for breakfast. I love mango smoothies during Ph 1 and I love everything about Ph 3. I think I could do this for the rest of my life.

Dalores, I sent you a sparkmail about BLC but the link was bad. SO it's basically a 12 week challenge made up of 18 teams of about 25-30 people on each team. Some teams focus on support - my team is like that. Some teams are very competitive with each other in a good way! Some are very structured and have lots of accountability. There are challenges and there are posting and participation expectations. But it's doable on about any level and I find it keeps me focused and energized.

Okay, as far as The Burn, I have heard from fans of the FMD that they HATE The Burn! The Burn is really for breaking through plateaus. I HIGHLY recommend trying the FMD instead. It's much less intense than The Burn and I know it works when followed since I am having success with it.

Hope that helps some!

Rebecca, what is a BLC challenge?

I tried jumping in with "The Burn" before the FMD book and didn't do well. I made a big pot of the soup and didn't like it.

Dalores, I am not a cleanse type but I have friends who swear by them. I would suggest some adjustments ahead of time so it's not a huge shock to the system. Not sure what her cleanse is but my friends who do them wean down the sugar, salt, whatever so they don't get a big system shock the first day.

Patti, yes read the book and take notes as well! I wrote down what meals appealed to me so I could plan a week out. I start on Mondays just as she suggests because it suits my schedule best. If you have any questions, I am glad to help out with them.

Phase 2 is not my favorite either with the high protein but I have tips and tricks for that as well. I've made this fit pretty well and right now when awaiting "THAT" time of the month my typical multi-pound bloat (as in 5 in the past years) is only 0.4 today. So something is sure helping that too.

By the way, if anyone is into structured challenges for your weight loss, I am a leader in the BLC challenge and we are accepting new people. Our next challenge starts in May and our teams are private. So let me know if you are interested and I'll invite you (no obligation to join). I didn't come here to drum up members - just wanted to offer in case someone had interest.

I'm already down 3 pounds in 3 days, but its probably water weight, I don't care, my scales been stuck for months on the same up and down couple pounds its nice to only see down! I can see how this car really bee a long term way to eat.

After sticking with the start nutrition page recommendations for 3 weeks, plus exercise, and drinking lots of water the scale didn't budge. After day 5 my scale was finally down 10 pounds. I couldn't be happier. I've been pretty miserable with the diet (especially p2), but now I can't wait to keep going.

Reading the book, checking out what I'm supposed to eat. I've been stuck at the same weight for months. I eat good, stay under 1600 calories (I track with Lose it) I walk about 28 miles a week.

Scale is not budging. I know I'm going down because my clothes are much looser and I'm wearing things I haven't in a while, but I'm perimenopausal and my weight fluctuates from 5 pounds and up when TOM is due, its been late up to 12 days almost every other month (track that too) the past 6 months and my pre-period is worse that the actual thing. So I thought I'd shake thinks up a bit and see if I can help my metabolism out! The foods are not much different then what I eat now so its not going to be a a big change, just the scheduling of eating what when. Has anyone tried the app for iphone?

After a week of stubbling through the process in an imperfect way I still actually lost some weight & feeling great today! Ready to do it over this week in a better way. I'm amazed how good the recipes are, my favorite last week was the Halibut Stir-fry. Very yummy! At first I thought I burned the pan but it was just the color of the tamari, haha. New adventures in cooking :)

Hi Everyone. Hope you had a restful night. Sleep is so important!

My Nook library is empty! I don't know what happened, but both my FMD book and cookbook (and every other thing) are gone. I'm trying to do this from memory.

Hey everyone! I have done this diet before and lost some to begin with and hit a plateau. I was not following the diet as strictly as should so retrying it...

Hi!
I'm new in the group. I'm doing the diet beginning on Saturdays. so I'm enjoying my mangoes on weekends. I lost 4 pounds in the first week. I'm finishing Day 2 of my second week now.
I felt hungry the second day of phases 1 and 2 during the first week. Phase 3 has so much food, I couldn't have the second snack! This week I'm doing better. Let's see what happens on that deadly Phase 2 (low carb AND low fat)...
First week I didn't do exercises (but Yoga on Phase 3) because I felt weak, but this week, I did already my fast pace walking, I'm going to do weight machines and and/or kettlebells for phase 2 and Yoga on Phase 3.
I'm really happy with this diet. I hope to have consistency and finish the bunch of cycles I have to do. May God Help me!

I fixed salmon steaks for dinner a couple of nights ago... Yum!

Looking for an opinion / feedback: Would you purchase a reconditioned Vitamix if you had the chance? (comes w/ a 5-yr factory warranty)

Great job on the week 1 completion and loss. And as everyone says, after you complete the 1st week, you start to figure this out. I would be lost without the phone and ipad app. The books and cookbooks are a quick read but tough when you are starting school work- I enjoy trying the new recipes.

The start of week 3 for me - phase 1 (which I love) and I lost 7.5 for the 2 weeks. I have 2 more weeks before my school starts and I want to have one cycle behind me. I also love phase 3 for the weekend. I cheated once this weekend and did not have snack 2 instead had a 3.5 oz glass of red wine (I have never had that little bit of wine in a glass) but it made sitting on the porch at the beach more relaxing. Tonight pasta and tomato sauce (made from tomatoes from my garden) I can't wait.

What is Shakeology Green Berry Shake and my T25 program and my BeachBody Coach? Is that part of the new stuff she is selling?

I have finished Week 1, and I lost 3 pounds!

I like Phase 3. The fat and carbs make me feel like I've "loosened up" a bit for the weekend without going off plan. I'm all ready to start over tomorrow.

I didn't do a great job planning with veggies and Phase 3 fruit this past week; I hope to have those things better figured out this coming week.

I ordered the cookbook, and it came Friday. I got sick Friday night, so I have yet to look through it.

Onward and downward!

We don't go back until after labor day so I have time to figure it out.
Week 2 Day 2 Phase 2 for me and you are right, this is the hardest phase to meet parents after 6 PM.

Good luck all, keep up the cutting and prepping.

Belmargirl - LOL! We started back to school this week, and I'm still figuring out my bathroom schedule with all of the extra water.

Week 1, Phase 2 began today. It's gone well. Hoping I don't get slammed with a headache tomorrow. Open House is tomorrow night, and I really don't want to be a monster when the parents meet me!

It is hard to drink all the water when we teach with ou limited bathroom accessibility.
It is easier to drink more of it after 3 PM.

Phase 1 Day 2, I love the fruits!

I'm baaaaaack!!!!

I started my 28-day cycle today. Day 1, Phase 1.

It's been a good day. I did lots of food prep for the week last night and feel in good shape to make it through the week without any hiccups.

I don't have all my water in today, but it was the first day of school with students, and I've got to remember to take the time to go to my desk and take a drink on a regular basis.

Ready to get back to goal!

Week one done! 21 more days left of this cycle.
Only lost 4 pounds in week one with a 1.5 gain in phase 3 but feel great eating real food.
And I did go to a graduation party Saturday night and said no to alcohol and ice cream cake. I think I was more upset about the ice cream then the wine.

Off to week 2 - lets go ladies!

I have a master's in nutrition, and was very excited about this eating plan. the science is sound. And any system to keep one from eating junk (sugar being number one) is going to help you.

My personal hope for following this plan for the next 28 days is to kick the sugar habit, the caffeine habit, and learn to say "no" more often in social situations where alcohol is presented.

Be Inspired - and inspire others.

Hi all,

I start back to school tomorrow. This week will be a little up-ended, but I plan on a "hard start" next Monday (8/11).

I'm looking forward to getting back in a routine and on a structured plan!
