    Just the phase one parts, though. It's too drastic of a change, and right now I don't have too much time to put into changing the way I cook and the planning that goes into it.

    I just decided to use whole grains in place of white, less sugar, and exercise more. Hopefully that will be enough.

    My husband didn't even notice I gained that ten pounds, so I doubt he will notice if it's missing.

    Besides, all it takes is a good exercise plan 3x/week with weight training for toning and increased calorie burning capacity.

    I've lost 60 lbs- Here's what worked for me-
    Discontinue antidepressants- I'm not suggesting you do- I did
    Eat nothing white
    Eat nothing processed- have a 3rd grader read the ingredients- if they can't pronounce them- don't eat it.
    Exercise daily- walk at least 1 mile per day.
    Get some other exercise requiring bending, stretching and sweating-
    I salvage scrap iron...
    As you lose- discard your big clothes

    Keep the faith-
    Don

    I have done SB a couple of times. The first phase worked, but I gained the weight back with 2nd phase. You have got to be careful with adding the carbs and startches for sure! Now this is what I do....dot he SB with a protein drink in 2nd phase. Exercise like crazy!
