    P4D1....adding things back

    So....P4D1.....5.4# under LIW.

    I have all the THM stuff....bc I always plan on doing it...but CHEESE and DAIRY are big trigger foods for me so I've always gone off course....

    This time around....I really think I've made a turn around....no cheats on P2.....P3 has been a success and NO cheats at all (not even by accident, lol). I've been trying to eat 1700 cals...but usually 1500....I'm having trouble eating the higher calorie amount since I've been avoiding the cheese (I do have some Parm...that cheese isn't a trigger).

    Today I've had my regular breakfast (2 fried eggs with butter & salsa & 2 bulletproof coffees made with coconut oil). Lunch is shredded chicken breast with 1 cup of cauliflower rice. I will add snacks in-between....nuts and today, a whole apple.....Not sure what I'm doing for dinner yet...but it will include a sweet potato.

    My question....should it be one kind of carb a day....or eat that carb for a couple of days? Should rice/grains be last? I love beans....what about that?

    I know FMD & THM are both encouraged for P4. Do I just jump in or add things slowly? Any help appreciated.

    P4 is about testing to see how much starch and sugar you can add back in and maintain your losses.

    The safe way is to do as you suggest: one choice and eat for 3 days, starting with a small amount and increasing to a full portion by the 3rd day. That should tell you how much of that particular choice your body can handle. Then test another one. Safest start is with a starchy vegetable like sweet potato, then move on to beans and sprouted or soured grains. After you've found your limits on those, you then can try 2 portions in a day. This is an excruciating slow process, so most people don't do it.

    There is is nothing wrong with jumping right in. But it is important to always pay attention to eating only to satisfaction, not fullness, and eat whenever you are hungry. Delaying eating when strongly hungry will encourage your metabolism to slow down again. I think that eating regularly is just as important as what and how much you are eating. You want to keep your metabolism burning so you don't start gaining at a low calorie level.

    If you feel you are carb-sensitive, you can fix that by doing a month of FMD. It really works for that. After the first week, I found that the carb/fruit days actually brought losses. You can do close to the same thing by doing single fuel days in THM. It is possible do THM without dairy, and it would seem that would be a wise choice for you.
