Hello - I am plotting and planning my FMD debut! I have the book and am getting good tips, recipes from several groups on Facebook...they are closed groups but you can request to be added. Check out Fast Metabolism Diet, Fast Metabolism Diet Support Group plus there is one that is for a 2 week challenge starting January 9 that is run by Haylie Pomeroy...you can get recipes, food lists, etc. to download from these groups. I am starting a notebook! I have to have things quick and easy...I am not a cook either.

What I like about these FB groups is so many different women post their weight loss - so encouraging! I tend not to participate, just gather info!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

I'M GLAD YOU POST YOUR MEALS, IT IS REALLY HELPING ME GET A PLAN IN MIND AND I DO LIKE TO COOK BUT SOMETIMES DON'T HAVE TIME SO THE GRILLED MEATS AND SALADS WILL BE "GO TO " FOR ME ALSO. I REALLY LIKE THE IDEA OF THE ALTERNATING PHASES, HOPEFULLY IT WILL KEEP ME FROM GETTING SO BORED WITH 1 FOOD TYPE. emoticon

DEQUINTA,You must like to cook. If so you should do great on FMD. I only wish I liked to cook. I just keep it all real simple by looking at the list of things I can have on whatever phase I'm on and grill, boil or steam and make salads.

I think you and Sharon are smart to start Jan. 2nd. I started about 2 weeks before Thanksgiving because I knew if I didn't start when my heart and mind was inspired to do so I may not start at all.

I have been keeping records of my weight and inches for years and I was looking at my records over the past 8 years and was not happy with my results. Every year I struggled to lose and once I did I would fall back into some old habits and leave SP then gain it all back. This time my goal or plan is to stick with it no matter how long it takes.

So this time I have decided to focus on 1 pound and one week at a time. Even if I only lose 1 lb a week or get stalled. My goal is 2 lbs a week. My biggest problem is craving Chocolate Milk. emoticon

I'm glad to see someone else here. The more the merrier! I started Mon. 11/14/16 and did okay though Thanksgiving, even lost 0.2 lbs.

I'm also 70 and not a big fan of cooking either. It takes time to get in a grove with any diet but you will. emoticon on deciding to do FMD.

I've been back on SP and TFMD since Nov. 14, 2016 (16 Days) and lost 6.2 lbs.
I just hope I keep losing a little at a time. So far FMD is working for me again. Another thing that is helping me is looking forward to losing 5 lbs at a time instead of my long term goal. emoticon

I actually don't use any sweeteners. No sugar, no artificial on a daily basis. Only in baked goods.
That is why it boggles my mind to see someone use 1/4 cup xylitol for a single recipe. Does not sound good to me.

Thanks Linda for posting, you're the 2nd person I've seen on here lately.

I just add the mobile app to my phone, so still learning how to use it. I can see where it would help you traveling. I found an herbal coffee with no caffeine that I like. It's called Teeccino Herbal Coffee‎ and it comes in packets too, you can get it at Amazon. No help on sweeteners except maybe try to cut them out slowly. That won't be easy for me.

I tried your link to that facebook group but, it didn't work. It's great you're trying to stick with it on the road.

Thanks for the sparkmail Bobbie

I did a week to practice, will be on the road for 4 out of the next 6 so will do a modification and go full blast next year.

I am using the app to plan meals, working pretty well. I do love my coffee so struggled really badly the week I practiced. I am also concerned about the artificial sweeteners. I have bunch of food sensitivities and have tried to follow clean eating practices for the last few years so anything sounding chemically worries me.

There is an amazing facebook group with tons of postings and help. You will need to request to join.

Restarting FMD. I used it to lose 20 pounds some months ago but went off the wagon and regained them :(. Good luck to all!

My copy of 'The Burn' is on its way. I'm doing fine on the standard FMD and have adopted it as my mainstay plan. It's very easy to maintain this way.

Incidentally, being new to Spark, how many active members have we doing the FMD?

I'm sure over time I will learn how to best use the site.

I've had an excellent week and want to tell the world! I did have a little cheat last night at a reunion. Turned out the lunch menu and dinner menu were one in the same. Pub food. I had a couple of crab cakes from the appy menu and selter water with lemon.

I am happy to say I don't feel even a twinge of regret. I made the best of a situation and am still going strong. I just know emoticon .

And, emoticon

A goal without a plan is just a wish.

The last bit of cottage cheese and the one container of yogurt will get eaten today. There will be nothing in the house to tempt me off the plan. By tempt I mean I hate throwing food away so it would be tempting to eat it rather than do that.

Tomorrow will be emoticon

My new fitbit has arrived. More exciting than that, I became a sustaining member of PBS thanks to HP. I got an amazing kit. The newest book, cookbook, test strips, phamplets and dvds. dh will be out of town for the first cycle, if you will, so I'm going to give this another try with all these tools at hand.

For exercise I am doing the T-Tapp rehab program. Attempting to, at this point. It's a new way of doing things and it's taking me some time to get it worked out.

By the end of March I hope to see improvements and hope others will notice, too. That would encourage me to keep on keeping on.

We can do our programs with the support of each other! emoticon

A goal without a plan is just a wish.

Have you seen the articles out of David Ludwig's "Always Hungry"? The book comes out in January. Kind of an interesting concept; it's like Phase 3 all week, with pretty serious fats. Same commitment to watching the carbs and refined foods, keep with more natural stuff. Thoughts?

I have the book and did the Iburn and the D burn. after D burn I started getting back anxiety and got off track. Might have been due to personal, The teas and soups are strong for loosing weight and you can use them with your regular FMT Diet.

I'm looking at Phase 3 and wondering if anyone experiences a gain in weight during this phase?

I've read a couple peoples post about struggling with phase 2, that's how I feel too! I found that if I make a soup, with onions or just some small chopped veggies, to enjoy more as a broth, it helps to keep me full if I drink it throughout the day because it is all unlimited! Maybe that'll help any of you who feel like their struggling too.

Has anyone read her book The Burn? I didn't see a team for it. Is it most closely related to Phase 3?

Thanks for the suggestions! I love cabbage, so I'm going to try that for next week!
Yes, I am getting the phone calls, and I do find it motivating to get that call every day to remind me to stay focused!

MELAMON, there are only 2 days where you cannot have carbs. Hang in there and Phase 3 will start soon. Remember no starches or fruits on Phase 3. Eat those veggies and drink plenty of water. When you feel the need for a carb, stuff a veggie in your mouth. Cucumbers are my go-to veggies, as well as carrots. But carrots are not allowed in Phase 2. If you like cabbage, steam up some chunks and indulge yourself if you get hungry.

Does anyone else have any helpful suggestions?

Here is fine with me. I am now getting daily phone messages from Haley Pomroy. Anyone else receiving them? Do you think they are helpful?

I am going into Phase 2 tomorrow. That's the one that I find the most difficult. I bought some thin steaks to saute in our new non-stick pans and also some turkey bacon. Today I am making some stuffed peppers as well. That's stuffed peppers sans the egg and breadcrumbs. Yes, it can be done.

How is everyone else doing?

Me, too! Let's pick a board to discuss the daily postings/call/tips and keep going together.

Tea solves everything.
You're a bit cold? Tea.
Your boyfriend has just left you? Tea.
You've just been told you've got cancer? Tea.
