Week 2 Phase 2 Days 1 & 2

This phase is my least favorite phase. I haven't weighed myself in a couple of days because we had company.

1) I had the same breakfast and lunch as you did Renee'. Supper is the cinnamon mustard chicken.

2) Same breakfast and lunch as today. Dinner will be the chicken and vegetables soup.

Week 3 Phase 2 Days 1 & 2

1) definitely not my favorite phase, although my daughter likes it. she's not an oatmeal fan like am, although she does miss the fruit. It's a meat kinda day! eggs for breakfast (whites scrambled with onions, peppers, mushrooms in veggie broth) tuna on greens for lunch, hamburger patty and greens for dinner.

2) planned is same breakfast as yesterday... same lunch, but chicken for dinner.

Week 2 Phase 2 Day 1

I did very well the past two days, yet I'm up a bit... It must be water retention, I've not eaten enough to gain FAT... I really hate fluctuations.

So.. protein phase. Today I had egg whites and spinach cooked in veggie broth, organic, of course, lunch is chicken and mixed greens, dinner will be the stuffed mushrooms recipe in her book, and snacks are chicken and turkey jerky... I thought I did so great finding the jerky, No nitrates, no preservatives, no artificial ingredients, sliced from solid turkey breast meat, minimally processed... but it's got SOY SAUCE and CORN SYRUP in it! Grrr... it didn't mention that on the website. :/ oh well, I shall eat very little of it and hope for the best.

Day 2
I skipped the turkey jerky today, snacks today are 1/2 of a beef patty each time.
back down on the scales.

I hate fluctuations.

Thanks. I have already lost quite a bit since Monday... my starting weight was 223 that day. I'm already 9.5 lbs down from that. Water weight, I know... still, the scale number is improving nonetheless.

I also ordered some stuff online... Week 2 will hopefully be a bit easier.

It does get easier. I'm on week four and find I don't really give it much thought any more. Hang in there. It's worth it.

while phase one went pretty good, phase 2 is already proving difficult. unable to find stuff I was wanting this weekend left me slim pickin's for phase 2. I had an egg white scrambled in veggie broth with onions & mushrooms for breakfast, skipped snack... didn't have one nor did I have a chance to eat it if I did. court was today and it started about 8:30 and I just got out. I'm eating lunch now: spinach and tuna. will probably have boiled egg whites with sea salt for snack when I get home after work... and I do have the Southwestern Beef and Cabbage Stew in the crock pot for dinners.

I'm almost wanting to give up already because eating should not be so hard or such a big deal... but I promised myself I'd go the full 28 days. I'm hoping that as I learn the diet it gets easier. I used to do Atkins and it was hard at first, but now I'm a "pro" LOL!

Hi,

This is my 1st week back on TFMD in 3 months and my 1st Phase 2 for this 28 day cycle.

The 3 cycles I did last year, Phase 2 was the toughest for me also. This time I'm hoping it will be better. I just bought Haylie's cookbook yesterday so I think the recipes will help.

I'm down 1.8 lbs form Phase 1 the 10th & 11th and if I remember right I lost good in Phase 2 before so I'm looking forward to these 2 days this week.

Hugs, Charlie

.

G'day, Spark mates!

Phase 2 is always tough but here I am again, week 3, day 1 of phase 2. I added an additional egg white to my omelet this morning and it seemed to help (I have chickens and one is a bantam that lays small eggs so I used one of hers with 3 of the "big girl" eggs).

Phase 2 is the only phase I needed to adjust by adding slightly more protein and I still lost weight. I think my body needed more protein so I gave in to it and I feel a bit better. It may not be a one size fits all diet but I am making it work.

We can do this!

Phase 2 was really hard for me. I don't eat much meat and it was a real struggle. I'm hoping to have more of a handle on it this week. Last week almost made me give up. Hope your day 2 was better!

Phase 2 is always best for me also. But I know the others are necessary in order to set up the next weight loss.

I too completed phase 1 and lost nothing, so I am looking forward to moving into the next two phases. I have completed multiple low carb diets in the past, so phase 2 should feel fairly natural to me.

Hi, I'm here! I made it through Phase I and didn't gain weight- my fear because of all the food and carbs! Decaffeinating wasn't tooooo bad :-) just a little tired yesterday. This Phase should be easier for me, because I am used to low carb dieting - like for the last 20 years!
