RE-INTRODUCTION SCHEDULE
The first two days will have absolutely NO carbs in them. Then, you'll slooowwwlllyyy work in carbs after that.

+The Correction Day
+Post-Correction Day 1: NO CARBS
+Post-Correction Day 2: NO CARBS
+Post-Correction Day 3: 1-3% carbs
+Post-Correction Day 4: 1-3% carbs
+Post-Correction Day 5: 3-5% carbs
+Post-Correction Day 6: 3-5% carbs
+Post-Correction Day 7: 5-7% carbs
+Post-Correction Day 8: 5-7% carbs
+Post-Correction Day 9: 7-9% carbs
+Post-Correction Day 10: 7-9% carbs


NOTE: if this timetable stretches into Phase 4, that's okay.

WHEN TO STOP USING THIS SCHEDULE
Your body may bounce back sooner than 12 days after your correction day. What's that mean? It means you'll start to see it not just stabilize, but lose weight! But at what point it loses weight and how close you are to your LIW matters in determining when to increase your carbs and calories. I'll cover that in the next chapter.

VITAMINS AND MINERALS
It's important, as you transition to P3, that you get the minimum amount of vitamins and supplements necessary for your body to function. So, the supplement I take: One a Day, their "Essentials" line. I take this one because it has the bare minimum needed for our bodies to function. Also: a magnesium supplement called "Mag64" by Rising. It's Magnesium Chloride -- a more readily absorbable version of magnesium out there, one that has been proven in studies to increase sensitivity to insulin, thereby preventing/reducing "metabolic syndrome"....this is good. Last but not least: I take 2 grams of Vitamin C. That's 2 grams (also known as 2,000 milligrams). This is because vitamin C is a fantastic anti-inflammatory, and you literally just cannot get too much of this vitamin (unlike other vitamins!). It helps with reducing long-term inflammation. So, the three that work for me: One a Day "Essentials," the "Mag64" by Rising, and my vitamin C supplement of 2 pills (which is 2 grams) made by Nature Made.

The multi-vitamin in particular is the most essential part of this routine; it will help your body process all the things it needs to process to get stable. I personally do NOT recommend a multi-vitamin that has the 100% RDA for "everything." This is because several studies have shown that we're getting TOO MUCH of some of these vitamins in our diets when supplements are involved; keep in mind that you CAN get too much calcium, you CAN get too much vitamin A and D, et cetera. Even though vitamin C in big quantities is allowable, that isn't the case for all vitamins.

So, basically when you add a "100%" vitamin to the vitamins and minerals already present in our diet, it's just too much, in my opinion; there are only certain vitamins we can tolerate that much of; RDAs may or may not be accurate, but for now I'm playing it safe. That's why I take the "Essentials" line from One a Day. It gets me what I need, without giving me too much.

I'm restricted from posting more than a few characters of text at a time. So rather than skimp on details, I've decided to split this strategy up into several mini-posts. Think of them as "chapters," in a manner of speaking. Each point in the summary (first listed in the "Introduction") will be covered in a separate chapter, numbered according to the sequence listed.
