    also took the time to check on his take on P3 and hard to distinguish between p3 ... very limited snd basic information... but he does not say anything about moving forward from P3....
    This instructions for P3 are very basic and simple: basically eat what you like, except for starches and added sugar. Then, of course, everyone wants to add rules, but I can say that in my first rounds, before I connected with this forum, I did eat most everything in P3. Even corn on the cob and Ezekiel 4:9 bread. (Not huge amounts or often, but I did eat them.) And somehow, it was fine. I stabilized and went on with life. So I think we can really complicate the P3 instructions unnecessarily.

    What is Ezekiel 4:9 bread?.... i am intrigued enough to check it out tonight

    I agree... mostly people complicate things....0nly reason i am investigating P3 at this stage is so I can be fully prepared snd a transition is smooth without radical changes on the scale.... roughly

    what carb level is acceptable if you include fats?
    And if you decide to add fats... that means corn on the cob and other starches/higher carbs are out of bounds

    Ezekiel 4:9 is a sprouted flourless bread made by Food for Life company in the US. It is a mixture of sprouted grains, seeds and legumes. Some think because it is all sprouted that it should be considered a vegetable, but that's a bit of a stretch, I think.

    I found that it works for me in P3, but because my first week is usually pretty volatile on the scale anyway, I don't start using it until the second week. And then sparingly, no more than a slice or two a day. Everyone has to test these kinds of things for themselves.

    Generally if you stay away from root vegetables, you are avoiding starchy things in the veggie category. All low glycemic vegetables can be eating in any quantity you like with as much good fat as you like.

    And if you decide to add fats...
    ?
    Fats in P3 should be a given. They are really important to keeping your metabolism burning in P3. I always look forward to cream in my coffee the morning of my first day of P3. And coconut oil candy! Don't be afraid of fats. They are your friend in P3.

    If it makes you feel better to separate butter from your corn on the cob (should you decide to try that), I suppose you can. But overall starch is so low in P3 that I don't think it really matters.

    I made almond flour bread for p3 as I was able to eat it without problems. My husband likes this recipe. I might try it for p3. Im only on vlcd4 out of a long round. But Iím trying to be prepared for p3. I stabilized very well in past rounds. But Iím trying to find ways to make it family friendly as well. Plus McDonaldís doesnít make the salad I ate for dinner every night in p3 last time. HAha. https://elanaspantry.com/keto-bread/

    Yes! My P3 was mostly the same foods, in more quantities and added fats for the first week before trying new foods.

    WOW!! you have it down to an art!!

    I have always done red meat, lean Beef and Ostrich with great results....
    But I have always also have had a GREAT loss.... followed by pulling teeth....
    Thought if I lower the calories but still eat full protocol by doing fish for 2 meals today, it could possibly help to shift the scale a bit
    I usually keep my 2nd fruit for after dinner, but for the past two evenings I got sidetracked and by the time I realised it was 8pm and I don't eat after 7pm... so maybe not enough calories?
    I am not hungry..... so I will just wait it out....it is bound to give me a big drop in the next few days....

    All good things come to those who wait!

    Just an opinion but going much below 500 may confuse your body...e.g. signal starvation mode and slow you down rather than getting a whoosh ... i stay reasonably close to under 500 but i know you like to tweak the POP.... i do not recommend it, be patient and eat both fruits I also do not usually eat after 7 but on original pop i ignore it and eat both. However usually not issue since i eat my fruit for breakfast I do not eat the grissini since it is optional and i would not be satisfied with one skinny piece

    I realise that Rose that is why I am sticking as close to my 500 as possible

    I am going into a crazy period at work so my afternoon snack is often not a priority in my mind that is usually a grissini but I than have it as I finish work

    I got quite used to it eating just one...as long as I have the correct Grissini.. about a year ag I thought I would drop a few Kgs and the only grissine i could find was little thin ones weighing 2-3 grams.... they were so moreish I would eat a packet at a time so failed miserably so will never buy those again

    Never been a breakfast person so my current routine suits me.... But will stock up on Strawberries so at least if I am running late Strawberries are quick

    Morning all....
    excited to wake up to a nice strong pink keto stick...
    but alas only 200gm (.44lbs)...
    buttt..... slowly slowly catch a monkey...

    I thought that I am very stuck in my routine and thought to shake it around and see how things go...

    I normally only have coffee for breakfast... but admittedly I use more milk than I should, therefore I do not have coffee every day... but going to skip coffee today through to sunday and only do green tea

    I never have anything to eat, but the last two days I had a bread stick for breakfast... so I thought if I want to get my head in the right space for P3 I should start considering something for breakfast, so I had grafefruit this morning...with green tea

    Also think I drink too much water.... I drink 3 large cups of green tea (about 1 litre) and then I drink two litres before I leave my desk... and possibly a litre after work till bed time....(approx 4 Litres)... so going to do 1 litre during desk time... that should bring it down

    Unlike mrsstrong my meals are no fuss basic 1+1 plus a little seasoning for taste.... but it does not bug me... that's how I eat normally unless I entertain then its OTT... but I thought I need t play around again a bit..... definitely going to do a couple of soups so its handy over the weekend when I am go go go... made a simple Cabbage and shrimp soup yesterday but added less off the broth scared of a gain after last time....

    Patience girl...patience...BREATHE!!
