ryanwisnoski's Journal, 02 June 2007

Hi all! Today, is the first day of my life change. I am a college student and that makes it extremely hard to be dieting and sticking with a regular routine. If any of you have cheap, quick, delicious meal recipes, I would love them because that is my lifestyle. I really don't have time to cook for myself and dedicate 3 hours a day to making meals. So, your help would be greatly appreciated. My biggest hurdle in the first week will probably be staying away from fast food and other restaurants and transitioning to where i make things for myself at home. We will see how it goes, and I will be sure to keep my daily food log on here as well as my exercise routines for the day, because I need help staying on track, and your comments and helpful advice will really help keep me on track. I will consider tomorrow my official start day, and hopefully Phase 1 won't seem never ending.

Good luck!! Today is day five for me so I am also still in the early stages. The first few days will be the hardest but, you will feel so proud of yourself if you stick to the diet. You will be surprised how quickly you get used to it. All the best.

I don't know about FS (I'm on Extreme Fat Smash), but the foods allowed on Phase 1 require little to no cooking. If you can boil rice and open a can, you should be set. :) Congratulations on taking this first step! Good luck!

Welcome! The initial days you start anything new are challenging, but you will get through them an it will be easier. Then the results will start coming to spur you on even further:) Good luck!

BEANS, BEANS, BEANS, BEANS! I would suggest making some brown rice. I'm not sure if you're in the dorms and those electric appliances restrictions but I know you can have microwaves. Pick up the quick brown whole grain rice that's microwavable. They come in packets and you just need to add 2qts of water. Uncle Ben's has brown rice that you can micro in the packet itself. Since I'm Puerto Rican, eating rice and beans in many different ways probably gave me an advantage than the average meat and potatoes person so I sugges the chili beans recipe on this website. I doctored it up a bit and added fresh jalepenos and frozen corn and diced tomatoes with jalepenos added. It's extremely spicy BUT I can guarantee you won't be hungry - your tastebuds will be on fire! I don't have a lot of time to cook, so I ate that for a few days. For a quick meal, too, get some sweet potatoes - wash, poke with a fork and nuke for 5 mins or so, add cinnamon. Don't forget to eat the skin. Most micros have a potato button you can press for no thinking cooking. Make salads and add fresh berries, mangoes and apples. Make your own dressing by squeezing some limes (leftover from the Coronoas of course), honey mustard and fresh herbs. My other favorite recipes are lentil soup (Giada from Food Network recipe. Just omit anything NOT Phase I friendly), fire roasted tomato chickpea soup (Rachel Ray). You'll find these soups quick, easy and tasy. AND VERY FILLING. I stayed within 1 - 1.5 cup servings. Good Luck to you. I'm sorry if I sound incoherent...my 20month old is fussing and needs attention.
