  • 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.

            Well that helps knowing that we can indulge in dill pickles as long as the ingredients are "right"!!

              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
