That's why I said we were only doing South Beach - sort of - and not being
really hard core about it.

I typically have eaten fruit as an accompaniment to other foods. An apple
with a grilled cheese sandwich, for example. Or a banana with toast with
peanut butter on it.

I already do 45 minutes on the elliptical 3 times a week, the alternate days
I do a routine of light weight/resistance training, and walk outside as much
as possible all days.

None of these things apply to me now. These things did not apply to me last
week, before we started this process.

LOL Forgive me, but I can safely say there is nothing on the approved list
for Phase 1 that I *love* enough to consider an indulgence. I am getting by
on almonds because I like them and they take time to chew, so they make me
feel like I'm eating something.

Actually, I have just found some recipes for ice cream that uses nonfat
sweetened condensed milk that sound really good. But that's a project for

I don't do shellfish.
or having a crustless quiche lorraine for
Eggs = gak.
I'm glad you feel a carb control lifestyle works for you and you're finding
enjoyment in it, but it's being a struggle for me.
