    How was everyone's Friday? Anything to look forward to this weekend?

    My friend and roommate is having a cookout for her birthday, so I'll be tempted by all kinds of sweet and savory treats. Ugh! Hopefully if I eat my protocol meal beforehand I'll feel fine.

    I've been hiding in my house all weekend. I'm on VLCD2 and the cravings/hunger are merciless!

    How's the week going so far? Liz, has you hunger subsided? By the 3rd of 4th VLCD it should, or you might want to adjust your dose.

    I was a bad girl and cheated a bit this weekend I was just so tired and there was all this party food in my house, blah. I didn't go nuts but I went above my 500 calories: a hamburger that prob wasn't lean enough, and a few bites of grilled veggies that had olive oil on them, a few bites of bread. Not crazy, but I felt SO guilty about it afterwards, because I'd been doing so well. It's really fricking hard to stick with P2 strictly!! Much harder than I thought it would be.

    Anyway, how are you all doing this week? I see there are some new peeps, hellooo!

    My hunger has subsided, thankfully! Now I'm just contending with the weakness. I'm going to go buy a good multivitamin after work today in hopes that it helps. How are you doing?

    Second day of loading- feeling awful! I feel a slight feverish, is that common?

    Hi Jules, I think it's because your body is burning all the calories you are consuming. I know that before the diet, any day that I would eat high calorie foods I would feel feverish.

    I weighed myself this morning today was VLCD-2 and I've lost 4 lbs from my pre-load weight. MissLiz I've been taking a few which my Dr. said is good to do during the protocol. I haven't felt weak, no headaches or lightheadedness.

    What's everyone doing for the holiday weekend? What are your strategies for surviving 4th of July barbeques??

    Here are mine, I'm going to a party at 8 Monday night:

    FOOD:
    -Eat a satisfying day of protocol foods before the party--plenty of f/f protein, curry spiced chicken, maybe some extra-lean burgers.
    -Bring a fruit serving and an extra-lean protein to the party in case of emergency/temptation.
    -Go easy on fruit and melba servings the days before so carb/cravings are to a minimum.

    DRINK:
    -Pre-mix seltzer water, lime juice, and vodka, mix over ice. Bring to party and sip slowly throughout the night.

    IF MAJORLY TEMPTED in UPSETTING WAY:
    -Remember mantra: "Nothing tastes as good as slender feels."
    -Remind self how great P3 will be a in a couple of weeks! Avocados! Dressing on my salads!! CHEESE! Milk in coffee!! Bacon and eggs!! Fruit with real whipped cream!! AHHH!
    -Ask boyfriend for kisses.
    -Fake headache and leave early if absolutely necessary. There will be other parties this summer, and they will be more fun in phases 3 and 4.


    Okay---hope everyone is okay!!
