    On the Low GI days you can use spaghetti squash instead of pasta - which is amazingly delicious. Have you tried it before?

    And you can have cheese on the low carb and low GI days too!

    I would start to write ideas down for meals on the different days and you'll be amazed at the combos you can do. Last night I made ideas for different restaurants (sushi, steakhouse, sub shop, etc) for the different days and its amazing how much you can alter your meals a little to fit the plan. I guess the only big thing is to only eat a small portion and save the rest for the snack or another meal.
    Oh I haven’t thought of spaghetti squash! I had it once and it was pretty good. That would be a great substitute. Oh you are right; I can have cheese on any day. Oops. So to make sure I got this right, for the low carb days I really eat only one portion of protein and one portion of fat for each meal and snack? I think I will make up my meals this week. You are probably right, I am sure I will find foods to eat, but being a carb-oholic it’s kind of scary. I think if I pull it off I will have amazing results though.

    Has anyone had tofu shirataki noodles? I here about them all the time on Hungry Girl, but my food stores don’t sell them and before I go online and buy them, it would be great to have some reviews.

    Also, does anyone want to share their favorite meal/snack for the low carb days?

    Thanks!

    I love being a Mrs.!

          So I've been following this diet since August and sorta slacked off but still managed to lose some weight. Anyway, I didn't really think that I had lost all that much, or that it made a difference in my clothes BUT yesterday, I went to buy new bras and they were 2 sizes smaller, WOO HOO!!! Luckily, I have still kept the same cup size! lol I was so super excited when I got home, and frankly, I still am excited. So after the bra thing, I get home and try looking for this pair of pants and I find these jeans. I hadn't worn them in forever. So I decide to try them on too, and BOOM, they fit like a glove. YEAH again!! Needless to say, it was a happy night last night! lol

          BTW, it's damned hard lately to follow this. There is food everywhere I go, especially at work *sigh*. I'm doing ok this week, but struggling really hard.

            Lisa - wow congrats, that is awesome news!!! :) My favorite thing about losing weight is fitting in to clothes I haven't worn in ages, it feels soooo good hey?

            To keep up with positive news, this is day 3 for me being back on track with the diet and I am happy to report that I'm down almost 3.5 lbs from my saturday weigh-in, woot!! It's hard with the cravings but that is keeping me totally motivated right now.

            oh and I have a new egg recipe for the a.m. that my PT recommended I try:

            - 1 whole egg
            - 1/2 cup of egg whites
            - two slices of back bacon (I like to chop mine up in to small pieces)
            - green pepper chopped
            - 30g of low fat cheese

            So it sounds like an omlette only I did it scrambled...it tasted amazing! First time I've enjoyed a non-cheat day breakfast in a loooong time! You sautee the bacon and the green pepper then throw in the egg/eggwhite/cheese mix and cook them like you would scrambled eggs. I topped it all off with a bit of salsa, it was amazing!!! I highly recommend this!

              ohhh that sounds good too Kathy! I guess I'll have to try that too. So happy to hear about the weight loss for this week so far, that's so great!

                So Kathy you weigh yourself throughout the week instead of once a week? I am trying to break myself of the daily habit b/c if the scale goes down a lot I think I am a dieting genius and start slacking (haha) and if it goes up, then I get all down on myself.

                I was at my future MIL's this weekend and I am sure her scale was wrong b/c it looked like I had lost 4 pounds my first week on the CYWT plan. Anyways, I am sure it is closer to 0 given my cheating little by little all week. Today is 2nd no Carb day though and I am doing very well. I love the changing up every 2 days. I think I get bored easily and this plan keeps me challenged! I am going to wait for the weigh in until Sat morning and see what has happned over the last 2 weeks.

                Hope you all are getting back on the wagon after the long weekend :) (excpet I guess you already had your Thanksgiving last month Kathy!)

                  well, I'll weigh-in maybe once during the week (other than saturday that is)...I try not to do it daily either because it tends to fluctuate a lot. Your MIL's scale probably isn't wrong...I lost 5 lbs my first week of this diet! lol It's exciting hey?

                  And speaking of loss, I almost lost 4 lbs this week so I'm back to my pre-binge month of craziness weight haha, woot!

                    OK so I did have to cheat & weigh myself this am and for the 10 days on the diet so far - I am down 4.4 pounds! WOW I am a believer.

                    Thank you Lisa so much for sharing it!!!

                    I love the changing up every 2 days so I don't get bored too. Just need to stay on track the next 2 weeks of constant parties. I'll try to eat within the guidelines but still have a glass (or 3) of wine.

                      AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! So much for losing another 20 lbs before the wedding! lol btw, I have 33 days before I leave, ACK!
