Go to phase 2! You risk completely blowing the diet if you try to stay in Phase 1 indefinately. If you read the book (not saying you didn't), it specifically says that if you stay on phase 1 longer than 2 weeks you are setting yourself up for failure.
I also tired of eggs and couldn't wait to get back fruit. Now my breakfast often consists of Kashi Crunch Cereal with lite yogurt and cut up fruit. Be careful with cereals. READ the ingredients. Make sure you get all whole grains, no "enriched grains" and minimal sugar added.
Another nice breakfast is 1/2 whole wheat pita (toasted), top with lite cream cheese and apples slices. Sprinkle cinnamon. YUM!

I do still have eggs on the weekends. Try some variety with them, make omlettes, litle quiche cups (in the SB diet book- original one I think), fried, scrambled, etc. Sometimes add cheese, sometimes have with 2 slices turkey bacon. Sometimes have canadian bacon on side. Variety will help you get through the "EGG" stage.
Good luck Razz

Salty and Crunchy
Any kind of nut is better than a chip.
We also eat popcorn, but sparingly.

Can I have this?
My hubby and I have successfully had Pizza on the SBD. We get thin crust and some places offer whole wheat. I opt for veggie and have a salad with it. My hubby can't give up the fatty meats, but in phase 2 we are a little more indulgent at times.
If you make it at home, you can buy the whole wheat pre-made crust or thin (not both in our store.) Also, we have used whole wheat Pita bread to concoct a pizza-like meal at home. I love the whole wheat pitas to make pita chips too.
For me whole grains have made a difference. For others, you might still get the carb "high" and resulting cravings later.
Good luck

Can I eat this?
I live in a small town in Indiana and I have no trouble finding whole grain wraps/ tortillas. It makes a great low carb alternative in phase 2 or 3. When forced to eat "fast food" Subway offers wraps (not whole grain, but better than eating anything else in a FF place!)
