  1. What a difference a day makes!

    This morning I was down 1.6 pounds. I lost all the weight I gained from being sick, plus a few ounces. I don't know why I'm having an easier time this round compared to my first... maybe it's just a matter of knowing what to do whenever I stall or gain, and which foods work best for me.

    Really, I think that liter of green tea in the evening is what's really helping. I always seem to lose more whenever I'm drinking green tea regularly; therefore, I'm incorporating it into ...
  2. Gain & Correction: I owned it!

    This hasn't been my best week, to say the least. I think I ate too much the day before, which resulted in a 0.8 gain yesterday morning... BUT! I've been through this before! I know how to fix it! And I did. Solid drop of 2.0 pounds this morning. Not only do I have a better idea of what I'm doing this round, but I've actually found the will to do it.

    On the downside, I did a lot of talking yesterday (with some shouting and a brief but painful span of screaming) and now my throat ...
  3. Grapefruit Day & Chart Adjustments

    Well, I'm back down within my 2-pound range (actually, I'm .2 pounds below it) after my bad food weekend. I didn't do a steak day (don't like steak, and the thought of a meat-heavy meal right before bedtime isn't that appealing) but what I did do was eat my usual breakfast (Uncle Sam's Flakes w/ Flaxseeds and blueberries, plus coffee), have a huge protein shake for lunch (with a very filling 48g protein), and ate a light dinner consisting of a huge serving of grapefruit, lots of water, and some ...
  4. Shudda Wudda Cudda

    I was overconfident yesterday and I ate out twice. Fridays are hard for me, there is hardly anybody in the office and most of my co-workers go out to eat. I had Indian (again) for lunch and Greek (baklava anyone?) for dinner. The scale definitely did not lie for I am up to 166.6 lbs. Aaaack! Just got done eating a pound of steak and doing a ctcd day tomorrow. Need to get this weight off ASAP or else no P4 for me.

    I shudda ate my packed lunch
    I cudda declined the dinner offer ...
  5. Veggies to Eat When You're Re-Introducing Carbs with the PCDS

    ORGANIC VS. NON-ORGANIC: POINTS TO CONSIDER WITH THE POST-CORRECTION DAY STRATEGY
    In my experience, there are certain veggies that have always helped with weight loss, both in P2 and P3. And, perhaps not so coincidentally, they're "low-glycemic" vegetables. I also only eat ORGANIC vegetables whenever I can; some are more important to have as organic than others. The guiding principle: if you CAN'T SKIN IT, you need to buy it as an organic veggie. IF YOU CAN skin it, you probably ...

  6. Your protein limit: Phase 3, Phase 4, etc.

    Hey all. I have to thank Beth_M for this; I had no idea that someone could eat TOO MUCH protein and gain!

    So, when I once had a gain, and Beth let me know it could be from eating too much protein, I went back and looked at my history that was present in my tracker. I discovered:

    Whenever I went over 120% of my weight in cooked grams of protein, I gained.

    So...if you want to be sure you don't gain from protein, I believe this calculation will be helpful. ...
  7. Reader's Digest Version: The First Two Crucial Days After a Correction Day

    READER'S DIGEST VERSION OF THE FIRST TWO DAYS AFTER A CORRECTION DAY

    Okay, this ORIGINALLY started out as a brief bulleted list, but folks seemed to want more of an explanation of the points. So it got longer. It's STILL shorter than the whole guide, so it qualifies in a sense as a "shorthand" version.

    Here it is:

    Sooooo....no carbs the first two days -- NONE whatsoever. Higher calories from grams of fats than calories from grams of proteins ...

  8. How to Lock In Your Loss After a Correction Day, and Get Back on Track: Ch. 7

    EARLY ON
    If your body loses weight the first no-carb day, continue on until through you complete the next no-carb day. Then, if you've lost weight two days in a row, and you're about to go lower than 2 lbs from your LIW, you'll need to proceed with upping your carbs and calories (but not before then!). If you're losing weight the first two days, but you aren't in danger of going 2 lbs below your LIW, it stands to reason that your body is adjusting itself to get back there, and you should ...

  10. How to Lock In Your Loss After a Correction Day, and Get Back on Track: Ch. 5

    NO CARBOHYDRATES EATEN THE FIRST TWO DAYS
    In this Post-Correction Day strategy, calories from fat grams will always need to be higher than calories from protein grams, and calories from protein grams will always need to be higher than calories from carbohydrate grams. Keep this in mind as you use a tracker.

    LISTING OF RATIOS AND THE ORDER OF IMPORTANCE
    Note: many trackers display their ratios in the order of fat/carbs/protein. So don't get this mixed up with your order ...
