    Oh Help

    Genious woman here is going to be away on vacation 3 days after starting P3. I am absolutely terrified of regaining all that I have lost (and still have to lose). It's a travelling vaca (by car) and will be 12 days. Every hotel has a 'free breakfast' kinda deal - I'm thinking cold cereal, yogurt and stuff. Do I head for the hard boiled eggs? Lunches I'm not worried about as my SIL loves big salads, so I think I'll be good there. As for dinners, I also think I'll be pretty much okay as long as I stick with broiled, baked or poached items and no pasta. We are going to be purchasing a cheap styrofoam cooler for the car ride and load it with water and fruit.

    SO --- any advice? Anything you can suggest will be HUGELY appreciated!!! --- especially for the breakfast portion.

    [QUOTE=Lola Smythe Pinkerton;693199] After a while you might be able to add some fruit, but the first week or so I would not eat any. QUOTE]

    Why? we were eating 2 fruits a day during P2? I think P3 is going to be soooooo hard I'm almost dreading going off P2.

    Because the first week of P3 your weight can be very unstable. I gained 2 pounds after the first 2 days. I am in week 3 of P3 and my weight is finally starting to stabalize for the last 4 days at what my LIW was. Stick to meats and veggies and good fats the first week and you will be good.

    You have to be really careful week1 that

    1)You get your calories up as fast as you can. It will be a little tough but you must do it. You dont want to stabilize at 1000 or 1200 calories because that will be your setpoint for calories. I stabilized at 2000+ calories.

    2)Most of the calories need to be protein and fats. You can add HWC to your coffee, cook your meats and veggies in healthy oils(I use coconut oil and butter). You can add meats that you didn't have in P2 including fatty fish and pork. Except for butter and HWC, be careful with the dairy. Introduce 1 item at a time and wait 3 days to make sure it doesn't cause a weight gain before adding more foods. Stick to lower carb veggies. You can add some like broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, etc. No starches or added sugars whatsoever. It really is easier than you would think as long as you are not careless and pay attention to what you body is trying to tell you. If you wake up with a gain of 1-2 pounds overnight, you may have a sensitivity and you will want to stop eating whatever the newest item you added for 3 days. Your weight should drop back down. You may try the item again later in P3 or P4. Small weight fluctuations under 1 pound are ok and normal.

    I read a bunch of P3 threads and had a few questions...

    All parts of the chicken at anytime? But then I read about chicken thigh day, so can I eat it anytime or only on a correction day?

    Can I have steak any day or just on a steak day if I need it?

    Pepperoni and bacon? Or not because it's processed?

    Brown rice is OK?

    Should I be taking any supplements?

    Just verifying skin on chicken is ok?

    Yes or No on eggs, I have read both on this thread?

    No milk, cheese, peanut butter, or any nuts?
    (READ THE FOLLOWING IN THIS THREAD SO I AM CONUFSED): "No peanut butter, because peanuts are NOT nuts... They're legumes, and legumes are forbidden. Legumes cause gains.) (Don't eat eggs, nuts, all things made from cow's milk (cheese, etc.) until P4. Dairy has sugar in it) (Eggs are inflammatory culprits, and only a few people can handle them in P3 without gaining)

    I think I answered all your questions on the thread you started about this.

    I've read all this information on what to eat/ not eat on P3, but have not read anything on concerns with cholesterol problems and eating such a high fat diet?? Should this be a concern? I realize it's only for three weeks but wanted to bring it up anyway.

    This article explains it well. Also if you google about the fat lie you will find much more info.

    Can somebody break it down on what you CAN eat during P3

  11. #131
    Hi, I thought I understood it to be no rice, potatoes, cakes, cookies, cupcakes, anything with sugar or a sugar derivative. Now, after reading this thread, I am more confused than ever. I never realized that ph3 was broken down by 3 weeks.

    My p3d1 starts on Thursday, trying to get a grip on it before it starts. Now, I'm more confused! What fats are we supposed to add? Coconut oil and olive oil? Heavy whipping cream? I don't drink coffee so that is useless.

    I was looking forward to eggs and FF plain greek yogurt

    P3 is no starch (like the baked goods you mentioned, any flour) and no sugar.

    That's it, in its most basic form. There is no formula for adding things back. You want to add healthy fats, increased protein, and increased non starchy veggies immediately. Beyond that, it's safer to add new foods one at a time - one new food every 2-3 days - so if you have a gain or sensitivity to something new, you know exactly what it was from. You see people mentioning dairy, eggs, and nuts the most often because they're the ones that cause people problems more often.

    Stick to the guidelines of no starches or added sugars, add other new foods in slowly, and you should do well! Good luck!
