Ok so my dh wants to take me out for Valentines Day on Saturday. I am so excited he even told me that we were going to go to a comedy club and that's right up his alley, I just hope it will tickle my funny bone. I am so happy he planned all this. The only thing he said I need to do is figure out what and where we should eat. As he fully supports my THM new shape happening.
Well I started the One Week Cycle and will be on a E meal day. What do I do? This will be my 2nd week through and I don't want to destroy it but when does my dh ever plan anything?? I couldn't say no.
So what type of restaurant do I go to? What do I eat? Help, suggestions please. Also, we will not be going to some fancy place. It just has to be dinner!
I don't know if this will help you or not but I'm in the same boat. My plan is to eat E all day but allow myself to eat an S dinner...I can't think of a healthy, on plan E meal to eat out & my Fuel Cycle is merely a way to boost my metabolism, it is not a measure of my success on this plan. If my husband wants to take me out then I will drop the FC for the night & completely enjoy my time w/ him & I can eat an S meal w/ no guilt. Enjoy your date, comedy clubs are so much fun!

I was going to say the same thing as cashen You could get a low-calorie salad, with chicken breast and low-fat dressing (fairly common menu option). Or a white fish with citrus (depending on where you go).
But I would probably switch it up and do the S, I don't think it would be destroying your week and you could finish your last day as E in the morning (guessing you have one left). You could always decide for sure once you get there as long as you have had 3 hours to switch.
Thanks ladies I appreciate the advice! I know I shouldn't worry but I am still trying to loose and last week loosing a 1.5 lbs I wanted to see something like that this week. I suppose I could just do a 3rd week if Monday I wake and don't feel like flopped. I need this boost as well. We had talked prior to starting so that I didn't have any of these days happen. But when dh get's an idea he runs. Which is good, or we'd never do anything as I am a home body! :-)

nakona62: Is it ok to have an S dessert right after an S meal, or when do you have your desserts?

stacylynn: linmom - I am sorry that this is so late, but for next time, try dipping your meat in mayo and "bread" it with nutritional yeast and spices. YUMMY! Chicken is especially taste-y prepared this way.

stacylynn: nakona - Sure! : I find if I eat my dessert directly after a meal, I don't want to graze. It works for me!

stacylynn: katiehatty - I have read various tweaks regarding the pudding. What is it that bothers you about the pudding?

corleygrammy: Is it ok to have 100% natural, no preservatives, no added sugar, no fat corn tortillas on plan?
May 5, 2015 13:20:24 GMT -5
stacylynn: corleygrammy: I stay away from corn tortillas, because I associate corn with the fattening of cattle. There are some other low carb tortilla choices that would better suit weight loss. I often use Joseph's Pitas in place of tortillas. Best wishes!

steffanie3: You can use corn tortillas on occasion if you want to, there are sprouted ones that would be an even better option if you go that route. You could see how you do, I personally use low-carb options as well

sms: I'm so confused and overwhelmed. Now my husband wants to join me and I haven't a clue. I am to the recipes in book but don't understand how to develop menues. Please help
May 9, 2015 18:36:06 GMT -5
steffanie3: sms, don't get overwhelmed Some new ladies prefer to stick to all S one day then E the next until they feel more comfortable, but you are free to jump in and switch back and forth as you menu plan as long as your meals/snacks are three-ish hours apart.

steffanie3: If you post up above we can have more room to give some suggestions if you put the things you currently like to eat and what menus look like pre-THM

meemee: Is 0% greek yogurt with Polaner sugar free with fiber jam an E snack?

natcr3w: Foran e meal can I have oatmeal with 1 slice of sourdough bread with t.of butter?
May 15, 2015 8:13:56 GMT -5
steffanie3: meemee if you use a full tbsp of Polaner it can be, you could add some more E fuel to it if you like and are struggling to get in Es
May 18, 2015 13:20:01 GMT -5
steffanie3: natcr3w, that works just fine for E You do want your sourdough to be whole grain to be on plan and your oats to be not instant.

kimlopez: Would the Earth Milk be OK to drink during pregnancy. I love it and just wanted to make sure. I'm assuming yes since "the shrinker" is on the list but just thought I would ask.

stacylynn: What do you think about doing the fuel pull weeks continually? It seems to be working and I don't want to mess up again!
May 24, 2015 8:21:09 GMT -5
stacylynn: Oops! Fuel pull weeks should have been Fuel Pull Cycle in my aforementioned comment...I need more sleep!
