Ummm pickles are fine. They have like 5 calories or something . . . salt but nothing to stress over. I have had pickles all along with no issue. Why do you think it was "cheating"?
Ok so i went to take one tiny itsy bit from a dill pickle spear today and ate the whole damn thing. Anyone have any experience with this? I need some input because I swear I am sitting here thinking about nothing except how good that pickle was and how one more probably wouldnt hurt....BAD BAD BAD!
i AM ON P2!
Also, what are people's thoughts on broccoli? Some say yes on p2 sopme say no...I know it isn't strict protocol. But still...
Pickles are fine, they are just the cucumber pickled... Broccoli is okay on P2 for many too I just wouldn't eat a lot as it is high fiber and it tends to sit awhile before moving on...
I eat both in P2 from time to time myself.

I eat pickles all the time in P2. Just be sure they don't have sugar - some dill ones do.
I also eat broccoli, although it is not protocol. I don't like most of the veggies, and I have to have a little variety. It has not affected my weight loss, as far as I can tell.
But you'll have to try it for yourself. Some people stall when they eat it.
I do fine with brocoli but DH gains a ton when he eats it. weird huh?

I was only concerned becasue in my mad rush to swallow the pickle whole I didn't check to see if there is any sugar in there...down .2 this moring. I think they may have cooked my darn eggs in butter yesterday.....big meanies. Theya re lucky I am over 2 hours away from them!
Pickles are just cucumbers! They are perfectly safe for the diet! I tried eating broccoli and stalled for 3 days, my husband did the same.
