Hi Katz259:

I'm a newbie to this SB having been on it only 2.5 weeks, I am a carb junkie (or ex CJ now!) and have been for years and years, have struggled with weight, and yoyo'd for years, I can not believe how good I feel on SB - I'm never really that hungry, my carb cravings are gone, so are my sugar cravings .... it's really amazing. Dr. Agatston who designed the program, the cardioligist, certainly did his research.

I used to love my high carb brekky after working out; however, I have switched quite easily to breakfast frittata's (lean bacon, eggs, mushrooms, red peppers, etc. ... I make it in a large square pan and then have a piece heated up for breakfast. Or, I don't mind 1% cottage cheese with some chunks of tomatoes mixed in. Even a boiled egg, or poached egg on a piece of lean bacon with some tomatoe, or egg substitute omlette, or even an egg white and one yoke omlette with veggies in it. Sometimes I just grab a couple of pieces of lean turkey lunch meat and wrap red peppers in it and some bits of part-skim mozzarella, and wrap a boston lettuce leaf around it all and it's pretty good.

Hope that helps somewhat ... it really does work though, and you may find like I did that you really don't miss the carbs.

Ms A

I stayed in phase I for a total of 4 weeks. I did that because I was not doing it perfectly and wanted my 2 weeks to be perfect before I moved on.

Unless you have orders from your doctor otherwise, it is totally OK to eat eggs daily. I eat about 2 eggs a day...everyday!! Eggs are good for us....yolks too!!

I always have 6 HB eggs ready to eat in my fridge.

Hi Katz259

Yes, I lost 10 Lb's, in 2.5 weeks and I am now starting phase 2 as I do like to have my steel cut oats for breakfast - but now I have some protein after I eat the oats and find that is working and I'm not hungry. I have the steel cut oats with 1% milk, then an egg or some lean protein or nuts afterwards.

I always make sure I have my mid morning and mid afternoon snacks too, either nuts or lean protein. I am also starting to add one apple back in and have that for my afternoon snack, but I spread a little natural organic peanut butter on each piece and that really makes a huge difference. Usually when I eat an apple it makes me hungry.

I also work out pretty regularly, at the gym on the cardio machines 3 times a week, weights, yoga, and walking my dog. I find I really enjoy this now and also find it much easier to do and have way more energy for exercise now I'm eating SB!

The 'egg' situation has changed now - they used to think it wasn't so good for us to eat too many eggs, even on Weight Watchers they wanted you to limit to three a week; however, recent studies have shown that they are NOT bad for you and they do in fact effect both good and bad cholesterol levels in such a way that it is not unhealthy as they once thought.

Dr. Agatston talks about this in his book - like Judynyc says, unless your doctor tells you not to eat too many for health reasons then they really are ok!

I do notice that Dr. Agatston talks about egg substitutes in his recipes though .... not sure why? Perhaps because his patients are mostly obese with heart problems??

*** Judynyc, do you know why Dr. Agatston talks so much in his recipes about the egg substitute stuff?? I use real eggs, not sure I want to bother with the substitute stuff, plus it's expensive!

I buy organic free range eggs - Dr. Agatston does mention that free range eggs, and meats, are better for us if we can afford and get them, so I do try to make most of my diet organic and free range whenever possible.

Hey everyone! I am Eliana, I'm 21 and I'm new to the forums and to the SBD. Well.. I always kinda have been a SBD, but I was under a lot of stress last year and I won a lot of weight. Now I want to go back to my ideal weight, so I read the SBD bood and I decided to give it a try.

Thought I should introduce myself to all the other SB dieters.

Hi Everyone! I posted a ton of questions in separate threads, but didn't introduce myself yesterday. I've been on the LC forum since 2004 when I very successfully did Atkins. But slowly I cheated more and more and then all out binged and so............. This time I'm really trying to find something that works as a true lifestyle. I read the SB book last fall, but wanted the "what to look for" list on labels. My DD (a SBer here) kept saying "well it's right there on the forum" & I could never find it. ANYWAY so I kept looking for a different diet. Long story short, I think I'm doing my own plan, but it's really close to SB. LOL Anyway I've lost 3 lbs this week. Have not had time to update my profile, so that's not right at all.
Just want to thank you all for the answers to all the questions I asked. It has been VERY HELPFUL!!!!
