I'm only in the middle of my first round phase 2, but I like to try to be ahead on what's coming up. So I was wondering if anyone had a list of P3 foods that are ok. Obviously I will be adding them slowly to see how I gain or not, but just curious.
Great P3 info, courtesy of Margie (mgsondance.)
Margie knows A LOT and I try to read all her posts...she's one of my Protocol Gurus!
I'm starting P3 tomorrow and am scared outta my everlovin' mind! gah!
Making a shopping list now.
Also if you have a iphone I found a great app. Just wish I would have had it when I was in P2. Its called HCG Diet app and is wonderful. It has a list of what you can it in each phase and how much. You just type in the name and it give you all the info. You can add it keeps track of your measurements, pictures, and water intake. Tells you when you need to take a steak day in P3 and has a count down of each phase.
P3 is no added sugar, and no starch. You have to read the labels of everything. Look at the ingredients, not the nutritional info. For example, dairy products have natural sugars reflected in the nutritional box, but don't necessarily have added sugar according to the ingredient list.
Here's a list of P3 hard to find foods:
SUGAR FREE BACON
Market Pantry Reduced Sodium (Target store brand)
Safeway Select Reduced Sodium (Safeway store brand)
Albertson's Reduced Sodium (Albertson's store brand)
Kroger Reduced Sodium
Jimmy Dean Reduced Sodium

Kirkland Signature Low Sodium (Costco store brand)
Newman's Own Olive Oil and Vinegar
Marie's (found in the refrigerated section):
- Chunky Blue Cheese

Stonyfield Organic Plain, (Cream Top, Low-Fat, and Fat Free)
Dannon All Natural Plain (all fat contents)

Voskos Plain, (all fat contents)
Dannon Plain 0% fat

PEANUT BUTTER (many health food stores will allow you to grind peanuts into butter)
Laura Scudder's (all except Reduced Fat)
I'd like to add for the peanut butter, any brand (Smucker's is the most popular) that's all natural and contains ONLY peanuts or peanuts and salt.
Peanut butter is technically P4 because it is a legume not a nut.
