Fruits, veggies, oatmeal, brown rice, yogurt, and lots and lots of water. I did eat lots of bean... but technically I guess beans would be considered a veggie?

The 9 days were much easier than I expected... except giving up the coffee.

Good Luck!

I know how you feel this is my second run at phase 1 the first time my foods were so boring. I ate basically the same thing everyday and got quite sick of it. This time around I was very careful when I went food shopping. I even bought a popcorn machine because air popped popcorn is allowed in phase 1. I have that everynight with my daughter and watch a movie before bed. What I have been doing is thinking of meals I like and wonder how can I make it phase 1 friendly. Last night I made black beans with taco seasoning layered it with brown rice tomatoes lettuce and it was good. Another thing is don't think you have to have egg whites or yogurt for breakfast this morning I had a cup of tomato soup with brown rice and it was good. You just have to get very creative to get through phase 1. Before I started this life change (not diet) I refused to eat tofu now I love it just soak it in whatever you want to taste and there you go. fruit smoothies help the sweet tooth just go wild. Good luck

This is what you get per day
2cups lowfat milk
water - unlimited
2 cups herbal tea
beans - boiled not refried - unlimited
2 cups oatmeal
2 servings (6oz) lowfat yogurt
fruits - unlimited
veggies - unlimited
4 egg whites
2 cups brown rice
herbs, spices of any kind, olive oil about a TBSP, limited salt.
if you can try to squeeze in a 15-20 min workout 5 days out of the 9.

Oh ya NO POTATO and no avocado. I know they're veggies but the book says to cut those two out for phase 1.

You should try and weigh in once a week, your body goes up and down in a day so you don't actually get the full picture. I tossed my scales so I could not weigh daily and go to a slimming club purely ...

I have to agree with gardengranny, the Doc should be the one telling you if you are ok to continue or stop taking a medication. You could end up doing more harm than good.

Drink lots of water. If you can, try drinking the Benefiber packets in your bottled water. It keeps you feeling full which helps during the detox phase and it helps with bloat, belly fat, and energy.
