Leaving Phase 2 onto Phase 3

I shared with you, at the beginning of the week, how it was going with the first days of this plan.

That was while I was still on Phase 1 and carbo loading.  It was not a happy 2 days but that may have been from detoxing so I am anxious to see how I feel this upcoming week during this phase.

Phase 2 found things getting much easier.  The wooziness, headaches and shakiness were gone. It was easy to adapt to eating out.  I was invited to dinner at my brother and sil's house, and didn't even mind that I couldn't have a glass of wine.  What I did mind was not being able to have a hunk of the artisan bread that was on the table.

This morning I enter into Phase 3.  As I write this post, I am eating breakfast: 3/4 of a sprouted English Muffin, 3 T. almond butter, 1 1/2 c. raspberries, celery sticks and water.  A lot of food first thing in the morning!

We are going to the zoo this morning.  I will pack up some almonds for my morning snack and bring along a plum to have along with lunch out.  

I started this program, 4 days ago, with  my weight at an all time high of 184 lbs.  I weighed myself this morning and the scale shows 179 lbs.  It was worth the couple of days of detoxing.

I have posted my Weekly Menu over at my other blog, A  Day in the Life on the Farm, if you care to take a look at next week's planned dinners.


  1. How does it work with Frank and the others. Do you eat the same things they are eating? Or do you have to fix different for them? Congratulations!!!!! 5 pounds if good!

    1. We fend for ourselves for breakfast and lunch. I have been giving them the same dinner as I but perhaps adding potatoes for them. Dinner always includes a protein and a vegetable so it is easy to include everyone.
