    Other people have said this came from me? I'll see if I can find those places and correct them. I never count calories. I eat way more than I'm supposed to for my weight. I don't believe in calories in/calories out.

    Beth, have you tried eating more calories than the 11x formula on P3?

    This diet has taught me that if I eat certain foods, I can eat more calories and maintain.

    If I stick to P3 eating, I can eat a few hundred calories more. As soon as I introduce even one carb, that number goes down. Same thing with regard to processed foods. If I stay away from them, I can eat more calories.

    Was it Margie who mentioned the 11X your weight theory, or am I remembering her commenting on that...I do recall reading it...but grammy is the consummate non-calorie-counter.

    Hmm, this isn't my advice, Beth. I never count calories. Once in a while I count them just out of curiosity. I eat well over 2000 calories a day. I don't believe in calorie counting at all. I only watch carbs to maintain.

    On March 5, 2011, Colleen (Grammy) said she eats well over 2000 calories: http://hcgdietinfo.com/hcgdietforums...-eat-p3-21866/

    I thought the point was--by the end of P3--to reset our hypothalamus to as high a calorie count as we are comfortable with (without stuffing ourselves), as long as we maintain our weight. This way, we don't have to worry about occasional indulgences in the future.

    I don't think Colleen still eats that many calories in a day.

    I've always looked at the 11 times number and worked around that. In R1 I could do about 1800 calories. In R2 at 159 lbs it was more like 1600 to 1700 most days.

    This round at 135 it seems that total will be lower.

    This is awesome, Beth, thanks! My only confusion is about the calories limit. Even Grammy, to whom you credit these guidelines, says she eats between 2000 - 3000 calories a day and doesn't count calories. I've seen many posts from women who say they maintain at 2000+ calories, but gain if they eat less. In P3 week two, I maintained nicely and even dropped eating 2200 calories/day. I'm 5'3" and presently about 161 lbs. So the (11 x current weight) number seems low to me (I'd be at 1771 cals/day). Can you elaborate on this?

    Beth, by any chance do you have a list of what kind of beans are good and what are bad for P3? Things like kidney, pinto, etc. Or are they pretty much all off limits?

    Thanks again for all the help! You are my Yoda!

    Thank you for this Beth. I also read that some have to stick to mostly P3 foods to keep the weight off. I'm not a carb person (potatoes, breads, pasta, etc) so that will most likely be me.

    When I made this - they were delicious, thanks for the recipe - I used just ground pork - then I added spices to make it seasoned like sausage - sage, thyme, salt, pepper, a teeny bit of nutmeg and ginger...you could add other things as you like - added these as I browned the sausage. Yummy!

    Thank you so much Beth! This list is awesome. On day 3 of P3...so it was great to have last night when I was about to eat broccoli and snow peas! I saw yogurt on your list of things to avoid - is that only if they have sugar? or sweetener? I have been having plain, organic, greek yogurt and love it. This should be fine - right?
    Thanks again!

    Beth, for P2 I was lazy and just stuck with the bare basics (also, I was worried about making the wrong choices). I steamed everything and added mustard and apple cider vinegar to whatever sounded right.

    But after two months I'm ready to get adventurous - IF I can find the ingredients. There is so much on this diet that is not available out here.

    And after my fourth order, I'm beginning to think that I should invest in stock from iHerb.com.
