    Exclamation P3 1st 3 wks--# of meals?, fasting? Atkins bars?

    Hi,

    I see that alot Walden farm products are not recommended on the threads I have read, so what other dressings are there, especially blue cheese that I love! Also:

    I intermittent Fast at least 3 days a week, How many meals are minimal for P3?

    Are Atkins bars good in P3?

    Any other tips would be appreciated

    For P3, you'll get the best result if you do not follow other programs during P3.

    P3 is the time when you tune into your hunger and fullness signals. If you have a set eating schedule, that can't happen effectively. You can return to whatever plan you feel works for you after the short 3 weeks on P3.

    There are no set number of meals. If you are eating just to satisfaction (recommended) you will find you will likely be hungry every 3-4 hours. You want to eat something every time you are hungry. This keeps your metabolic fires going that have been revved up by your time on HCG. Your meals might be different in amounts according to your hunger and satisfaction signals. You might only want a light snack for your last meal of the evening, for instance. That is ok. Don't worry about calories except to check that you are getting enough. Its all about choosing the foods that will get you enough calories for the amount you are able to eat without stuffing yourself.

    Its better to eat real food in P3. Processed foods like protein bars and such re-introduce chemicals that are not optimum. Nevertheless if you are stuck somewhere hungry, and an Atkins bar is what you have to eat, its better to eat than than to stay hungry.

    Relax and enjoy the freedom to eat yummy things like chicken baked with the skin on, real butter, bacon, steak, coconut oil candy, all kinds of non-starchy vegetables and any fruit you like. If you decide to add dairy, choose full fat or at least 2% versions. Heavy cream, half&half.

    Thanks Leez,

    That helps alot, I need to get comfortable to eating more and im struggling with that concept. I am apprehensive about eating more, yet I look forward to it--weird I know lol! I would love suggestions for low carb & sugar veggies.

    Also, what do I do when I add a new food, like eggs for example, and they make me gain--do I stop eating them and wait a few days and try again, or stop period?

    You can retest in a few days if you wish. Personally, I do not retest a food once it causes a gain in P3. You can always retest later. But P3 is just a short time, and the more of that time you can spend at or near your LIW number, the more solidly you will stabilize. So why mess with retesting when there is the possibility it will result in another gain and the need for a steak day.

    Berries, lemons, limes and kiwis are your lowest glycemic fruits. Dark green veggies are you lowest glycemic veggies, but any non-root veggie choices are great for P3. I like to make a rhubarb sauce (method is same as making applesauce with your favorite sweetener) for when I'm wanting a "fruity" sidedish that is ultra low carb.

    As Leez has recommended, save all those "alternative eating patterns & foods" for P4. They do work then to keep you close to LIW when you don't feel like eating a lot, or are nearing the top of your limit in P4. But you do need to follow P3 as suggested.
