Thanks Lisa. Do you think I can skip the phase in 3 week part? I want to start NOW but with Thanksgiving and all the Xmas parties coming up, I need that weekly cheat day :)

I really like the variety the diet has, though I am nervous about the Higher Gl days with no fat. I really like my rice, bread & pasta w/ butter ! I guess I'll just have to do pasta w/ lean meat sauce.

Amy - I don't think it would be a problem. The 3 week phase I think is just to give you a boost in getting on track. I've restarted a few times and didn't do the priming phase again. Those cheat days sure are nice!

Great, thanks! I'm going to start this Sunday. Right after my Saturday cheat day - haha.

 

And BTW off topic, I just checked out your wedding hotel on line (I had never heard of it before) and it looks AWESOME. You guys are going to have a great time for sure.

I am in the same boat -- I dislike the high-gi days...
For the high GI days I do things like:

Chicken breast + one of the following:

a) sweet corn (frozen).. YUM. I add a smidge of butter and salt.
B) pasta with red sauce (I use one that has only 2.5g fat -- it has a little fat but not much. It's trader joes marinara, or barilla tomato/basil)
c) brown rice with curry sauce (trader joes.. very low fat and delicious)
d) black beans or fat free refried beans -- even though they are low GI I often use beans on high gi days.
e) cous cous
f) plantains (goya, found in freezer section of store)

you could also just eat the lean protein as the meal and then have a banana for dessert...
