OK, so when is the best time to go shopping for P3 food? Last injection date? Third day of 500 after LID? How hungry aro you by that 3rd day without HCG? Come on folks give us some hints.
I went shopping on the day before I started P3... BUT I thought about what to buy for a few days before that... I am doing the same this time.

Yep, I'm going to make out my shopping list ahead of time. I want an egg and some nice low sodium bacon (sugar free of course), and salmon for dinner!!!!!
Actually, the first few days I'm going to just increase my protein and save that breakfast for a day or two. I think I'm going to try to keep the no breakfast thing going. That used to be a way of life for me, and it seems like it was a good way to do it, the only time I had breakfast was on a weekend or special occasion. It was like a treat. Maybe I'll do a piece of cheese or something as you dash out of the house.
I decided to do a steak day today. I didn't eat breakfast and forgot my lunch and am almost 2 over LDW so I figured "wth, why not".
I made a really good chicken brocolli casserole last night, it was supposed to be 2 servings but I was really tempted to eat the whole thing is was soooo yummy. Between that and chicken fajita salad I'm a happy camper so far with my P3 foods. I made a cheesecake last night too but it didn't turn out as planned...It was a no-bake and called for xylitol and another kind of sugar sub but I only had xylitol. I don't think the ratio ended up being right because the cheesecake is not sweet. I made the crust out of almond meal, that turned out good. It's still a treat though. Next I want to try the cauliflower pizza!
Sorry I'm just getting on today - I can't believe how much trouble I am having breathing and my family doesn't want to be in the room with me while I cough, sneeze, sniff, and breath through my mouth. I'm really looking forward to some drugs tomorrow because the homeopathic isn't working for me!!!!
Okay, enough complaining.
It's vlcd 3 for me and I am STARVING! This did not happen the first 2 rounds but I think drainage makes me hungry (sorry, tmi). I bought some things for R3 and I regret it because they are calling to me and I have to fight it with every fiber of my being.
My recommendation, if anyone out there is struggling with being strong, is to wait until P3 to shop if you can. If you can shop in the morning of the first day then I would have an apple on hand, eat it on the way to the store, and shop for day one's food intro. then go home and have a good time. I for one am starting with cheese, I just decided that today. I will have cheese and apple for breakfast, melt cheese over chicken breast for lunch and parmesan crust some fish for dinner. Of course all of this will have yummy grilled vegis like mushroom, onion, and bell peppers!
Just thought I would check in an all of you again, see how it's been going...
I am starting P3 on the 17th - only 8 days left, but I am already making plans for what i am going to eat Reading al of your posts really makes me hungry.
I am definitely having eggs for breakfast, probabbly with some bacon. And I am definitely having a nice steak with a glass of wine for dinner - I've been looking forward to it this whole time. And definitely some salmon in the first day or two... Hmmm... Ok - this thread is not good for me. Be back soon
Okay, I'm reading here about P3 and I'm confused. We'll take our last drops at dinner on the 13th. According to our booklets that came with the HhCG, we're supposed to wait three days before going into P3. So does that mean dinner on the 16th or Breakfast on the 17th?
My other half has decided half & half will be the first. I'm still undecided. Bacon sounds so YUMMY, but then so does CHEESE!
