To add to what Tish said, after you identify that your oatmeal and your fruit choice doesn't cause you issues - you can then try eating a serving of both ON the same day. See how you do with the scale. If all okay then try either a new fruit or a new grain. Odds are you can keep one serving of fruit in your diet daily. The bigger question is how many servings of grains you can tolerate (ie daily vs every other day vs multiple). You can experiment with adding a second serving of fruit but I would wait for awhile (ie until you have been entrenched in this phase).

Please note - this phase 1.5 is really what we consider phase 2. The original book had described phase 2 adding in multiple servings which most people ended up gaining from. So when the newest edition of the book came out, Dr A had warned that not everyone can tolerate multiple servings and still lose. The SB Community basically coined the term 1.5 to represent this slowed down phase.

I would continue with this for a while. If you end up hungry within a couple of hours after eating, have cravings for carbs/sugar, stop losing weight or actually gain you may have found a trigger.

Then you can switch and try a new fruit...or try a new grain. DO NOT try two new things at the same time. Why - because if you end up with cravings, you can't sort out which triggered you. Grains are bigger triggers and cause more cravings than fruit usually. (Although apples can cause "growlies" which if you eat with a protein like peanut butter or cheese, it will counter). The link on phase 1.5 that I posted spells it out. Go slow...don't add a bunch of new foods all at once. Watch for cravings/triggers and watch the scale.

Okay so I plan on adding oatmeal Sunday morning and strawberries in the evening. So should I eat those for a couple of days and see if I gained weight? Then what....?

Phase 1.5 is the way to go. It's what most of us did.

Okay, down 4 lbs! One more week to go! How did you all jump into Phase 2 ? My girlfriend said you are allowed one carb (not for dinner) and one fruit everyday on Phase 2 til you reach your goal weight. is this true?
