I am moving to Phase 2 early. It is so upsetting to plan meals. Everything my husband wants has rice or noodles and I am going nuts. I haven't had any real cravings, but really am not happy doing this plan. I think it is a good plan it is just causing me the same type of stress that always caused me to fail in the past. My husband will make anything I tell him, but isn't really trying to find anything to cook that would be on my plan. He bought cabbage rolls for tonight. Pre-made by Hy Vee I have no idea what is in them. He thought it would be good, after all it has cabbage around it. Does it have white rice or bread inside it also? So then he said," well how about a veggie pizza since you have to eat so many veggies". The thing is he really thinks he is trying. Of course I can't get him to read the book or go through the recipes picking something out to cook.
I will try phase 2 which is really close to how I was eating. I will not have my ramen noodles, rice cakes and fruit cups. We will switch to wheat noodles which I like and I will not go crazy with my husbands meal choices. I will just eat small amounts and have lots of salad. Why couldn't I be one of the lucky people who can eat like horses and not gain weight! Now I am off to meditate, then workout, go to the bank, store, and make who knows what for supper.
