Thread: Pickles in P2?

    Pickles in P2?

    Are pickles allowed? I have some spears that are 5 calories per spear. No sugars. Ingredients list cucumber, water, vinegar, mustard seeds, and a few other spices...

    Yay or Nay?

    This is technically my 2 round, first round was in 2011 after I had my son. I lost 9lbs (went from 129 to 120) but have since gained some back.

    From what I've read, as long as the ingredients are fine, pickles are a go. You just have to watch to make sure that the high amount of sodium doesn't make you retain water. Of course, they count as a veggie serving.

    Yup, dill pickles should be a go :-)

    It's the icky sweet bread and butterpickles that you need to watch out for.

    I like the baby dill pickles. I eat them as an after work "treat". Usually one little one satisfies my craving.

    I've been able to eat dill pickles in P2 and haven't noticed a scale difference on days I ate them versus days I didn't. I say it's worth a shot to try it out
