Hello~
I am on my 10th day of the fat smash diet (beginning of pase II). I checked my weight this morning and lost 8 lbs in 9 days (the end of phase I,) I am excited!!! My question is, can I stay in phase I for nine more days, or do I definitely need to move to phase II. I am comfortable in phase I. Also, can I eat baked sweet potatoes as a snack? I have found a delicious recepie for the, it is like having your desert! How about drinks with no calories, and no sugar added? Thanks and I await your answer.

Best regards, and good luck to all.

WAY TO GO!!! I think you could stay with Phase I, but more than likely it won't result in another 8 pound lost. What I did the first time I lost using this program before having my second child, I moved onto level 2 for the three weeks, but on Tuesday and Thursday, called them our "t-days" we ate Phase I foods. I lost 9 pounds during first phase, then average 2-3 pounds/week for the remainder of the diet then became pregnant.

If you stay with Phase I, you would not add in diet drinks, etc. That is the excitement of Phase II for me, can now have no sugar added drinks (even though I am still not drinking Coke Zero), in moderation, cereal now, etc. Then after 3 weeks, you are allowed to add a few more things back in...ah wheat bread! Helps me to keep going knowing there is something new coming down the road.

In all phases I made sweet potato chips and also toasted chick peas that I ate as snacks or with meals.

I didn't lost 8 pounds this time doing FatSmash probably b/c my body has been detoxed already since January 5th when I began WW. I switched to Fatsmash b/c my parents wanted to do it. I told them I would do it with them so I could be on the page eating to help them with what they can and can't eat.

You have no idea how thankful I am that you replied to my post. Thanks. I really appreciate all of your comments. I started at 177 lbs, and nine days later, with very little excercise (only 3 times for 30 minutes,) I weight 169 lbs. I am about 5'10" so I would really like to get to 155 lbs. I hope I can do it. Phase I has been easy for me, because I am not too big on sodas, meat, or bread. My big temptations: Nutty Buddys (two before bedtime!) and coffee. I am just so afraid to go to phase II and gain weight because of the added foods before I get to my target. I would really appreciate your advice on this one. Also, why can't we have sugar-free drinks such as Lemon Lite if it has 0 calories, and 0 total fat on phase I? Sorry about all these questions, but this is my first time dieting ever, and I am so OCD about it. Funny how once you hit 45 and over, everything goes south, and love handles apprear without even being noticed until you go to get a physical, and someone mentions numbers (177) that I had never heard before. My breast were growing, and I felt totally sexy, I just did not realized that my hips, and waist were catching up with the upper part.

You have lost quit a bit of weight yourself. Do you like this diet? and how is it going for you and your parents. Are you on phase I? If so, let me know if you need some recepies. I have a few of them that I have come up with, including a sweet potato mash that can be eaten as a snack, or desert in phase I. I wish you and your parents the best, and will be praying for you all to hit your targets. Take care, and keep in touch.

I think the whole reason for nothing but water in Phase I partly is mental. The developer of this diet wanted us to completely cleanse ourselves and realize you may have to give stuff up to reach your goal. I do have the zero calorie flavored waters now but try to limit the carbonated drinks mainly just because of the blaot aspect even Coke Zero, Diet Sprite, etc. I may have one a week or every other week.

I did Fatsmash the first time in 2006 with excellent success. Made it to middle of Phase III when we found I had become pregnant. We had been trying but didn't think it would happen so fast since with our first child took 9 months. This time 2 cycles later and I was pregnant. I didn't get to my goal weight but did lose about 40 pounds in a short period of time (around 5 months if I recall correctly). I lost 9 pounds that first Phase then about 2-3 pounds a week after that.

I was also able to maintain most of that loss during my pregnancy and not gain as much as a did with my first child. However, instead of being smart and getting right on Fatsmash after having Travis, I didn't and packed on weight after delivery. Tried to get focus and diet last year, but didn't have anyone helping to motivate me (too bad didn't find this site 2 years ago). Lost 20 pounds and then put that back on almost before this year signing up for WW New Years Eve.

I used a lot of my FatSmash recipes but didn't follow the true phases until 2 weeks ago when my parents decided they wanted to do Fatsmash eating. I told them the best way for me to tell you what to eat, is to be eating it along side you. This diet is great b/c you don't have to keep up with points, calories, etc. You just eat the foods that are on the Approved list and avoid those that are not. You also look forward and begin counting the days til you can get to the next phase and reward yourself with something now approved. For me it was a real dessert in Phase III. I began Phase II this week and was so excited to have cereal again! That is just such an easy breakfast. I like my oatmeal, but wanted something cold now that it is getting hot outside.

I too learned a lot of snacky type foods I kept on hand such as roasted chick peas, sweet potato chips, etc. That helped with those mid afternoon munchies.

Keep up the good work, you will hit your goal in no time. I am unfortunately vertically challenged (5'3"Wink so I have a bit further to go than you do. I have my goal at 125, but I will see as I get closer to that range how I look. I like having some meat on my bones. My healthy weight range is supposed to be 113 - 141. I was shooting for somewhere in between.

Wow, I too gained lots of lbs after having my children, but that was 20 years ago, and I can no longer blame my body on post pregnancy fat. It sounds like you are on the right track, and very focus and committed to your target goal. You have 41 lbs to go, please keep me updated, and let me know how you are doing. I wish you the very best and know that you will hit that goal. Good luck, and keep in touch.

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.
