    Have I totally ruined my phase 3 on day 2?

    Ugh. So, first of all: I already feel pretty stupid.

    Somewhere, I got the idea that black beans were okay on Phase 3. I realize now I was incorrect.

    Yesterday was my first day of Phase 3, and I made a salad w/ Cucumbers, Tomatoes, Avocado, Black Beans, and Lime juice. I had a couple servings yesterday (small ones, as this was shared at a BBQ) and probably 1/2 a serving at lunch. I'm prepared to do a steak day tomorrow if there is a lot of damage in the morning, and clearly I won't be eating any more of them. However, have I totally messed up my set point phase now? I lost ~14lbs on Phase 2, and obviously I'd prefer to maintain that.

    It's not totally ruined but do a steak day if you need to tomorrow. Good luck!

    Thanks, I feel like a total doofus. Looking at my #'s for today, I feel as full as a tick and I've eaten just 600 calories. 35g carbs, 19g fat, and 60g of protein. It's 8:30 and I am trying to figure out if I should eat more - I don't even know what I WOULD eat - Maybe a 0% fage with berries and stevia? But I'm seriously very full. Under normal circumstances I would not eat again right now, I'd have a peppermint tea!

    Don't eat 0% fage! That's more carbs. Eat as much fat as you can. You're not eating NEARLY enough. Tomorrow you have to do better. I don't have 0% anything in the house.

    Breakfast:
    1 egg scrambled with salt, Trader Joe's Everyday Spice Mix (excellent, if you have TJ's)
    slice of turkey breast meat
    1/2 apple

    Lunch:
    Curried Chicken Salad with Apples

    Snack:
    1/2 Apple

    Dinner:
    3.75 oz chicken breast
    5 oz sauteed spinach

    Various teas through out the day, coffee (no cream or dairy), and water.

    Edited to add: Also, Fage 0% has (according to their website) 7g carbs per serving, where as full fat and 2% have 8 grams each. I pretty much use Fage instead of mayo all the time because I think mayo is gross. So now I'm *really* confused. :-/

    There's a slight difference in amount of Fage. But regardless, I never eat 0% fat anything. And you've already had too many carbs today so 7 more carbs is the worst possible thing you could do tonight. 600 calories is barely more than Phase 2 and you're on the 2nd day of P3. You've got to get those calories up and not be afraid to eat or you're going to start gaining, doggone it!

    Well, assuming I don't end up doing a steak day tomorrow, I'll do my best! I literally do not feel like I could eat a single other thing right now, though. I probably ate "better" yesterday, but b/c of the bean mixup, probably didn't really reap the benefits.

    I've been seeing different figures all over the place about what range to keep carbs in, and find that confusing as well - people saying they're eating far more carbs than I've had today (over 50?!), others saying to keep it at less than 15 grams - where should I aim? I'm tracking with My Fitness Pal.

    You should not be eating many carbs. I never even add in fruit the first week of P3. To get to 50, you'd have to be eating a lot of fruit because that's the only allowed item with very many carbs in it. Not sure where you are reading that kind of number. I've never seen it. You don't actually count carbs but because of what is allowed in P3, you naturally don't get many. You should talk to people who have actually stabilized for a long time, not someone who did one round and was fine even if they cheated because that is not the norm and that kind of thing can come back to bite you about 6 mos down the road.

    OK, so I was up exactly 2lbs this morning, so I didn't do a steak day.

    I managed to eat slightly over 1300 calories - 77 grams of fat, 141 grams of protein. My carbs were still high (39 EEP) but half of those come from the avocado I had at lunch, so I don't know.

    We'll just see how it is tomorrow, but I was impressed with how much I managed to eat. Also, I am finding out that my brain is programmed to eat much lower-fat than I really ever considered, and many of the choices I want to make instinctively to "eat well" are not what I need to be doing right now. Very frustrating. Regardless: Thank you for responding.
