This is the first big challenge. This assignment will change your body in such a slimming way. I’m getting sexier just thinking about it.Β It is for 3 consecutive days. Depending on when you read this (we’ve got people from other countries!), you can do this challenge on Tues/Wed/Thu or Wed/Thu/Fri, and so on. The latest you can start is Friday, December 21st. I’m starting tomorrow (Tuesday). Here’s the assignment:

Day 8-12 of the Fitness Jump Off

1. For 3 consecutive days, complete one of the two options below:

Option A: Eat 8 green meals in 3 days. A green meal is a meal that includes at least 2 cups of vegetables. Fruits, beans, and proteins are allowed but 2 cups of vegetables must be present for the meal to count. Snacks count as meals. Examples of acceptable meals are: egg omelet with spinach, bean salad, salmon with broccoli, veggie medley, green smoothie, etc. You are not allowed to have any restrictive foods an hour before or after your green meal, nor during your meal. Restricted items include: cheese, crackers, all bread, fried foods, and white rice. Stop rolling your eyes. This is doable! The worst thing that will happen is you’ll be caught with green stuff between your teeth. You’ll be aight.

Option B: Eat no more than 350 calories of sweets in 3 days.Β  You can spread out your consumption of sweets or eat them all at once. For example, if you know you are going to a holiday party, then I would save up your sweet calories for that event. The key to success is to overestimate how much you’re eating -if you don’t know the nutritional info. If it’s a big cookie, assume it’s 300 calories or more. In the same breath, if it’s a small, Nutella brownie, it’s probably super high in calories, too. The following sweets are limited to 350 calories total: dried fruit, protein bars, baked goods, honey, agave nectar, juice, all sodas, and candy. Please reread that list. For my nitpickers, organic, gluten-free, and homemade sweets are still sweets. Stop trying to be slick.

When choosing an option, I encourage you to pick the one most challenging for you. The one that will make you super proud of yourself once you’ve accomplished it. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can do both.

What option are you choosing? What day of the week are you starting? Are you optimistic or never coming back to my blog again?

I’m sure there are questions. Ask away.

@Ween. You give me life! And yes, the truth about sweet green bread. When I tell them to hold the bread, I feel a little empty inside, like something isn’t right. I’m proud of you for ignoring the free dessert. Temptation on many levels!

Ween · 12/26/2012 at 2:01 pm

I just realized that I didn’t post about this. From someone that eats mostly green meals (or what I thought was green meals)…I thought this wasn’t going to be tough. I didn’t realize that the bread they give u at sweet green and chopt is my favorite part of the meal and I didn’t realize how much 2 whole cups of veggies actually is. I also received my first free dessert at a restaurant as a reward from a waiter for us being so healthy through dinner (who does that happen to?!) and had to resist from eating it. I did realize that once I waited an hr, I didn’t want the dessert anymore πŸ™‚ thank you angel!

Angel · 12/22/2012 at 1:28 pm

@Elena. Saying no to fries is the biggest battle of all. Why do they smell so good?!?!

Slomo · 12/21/2012 at 8:43 pm

Completed day 3 with success in terms of the challenges, but I ate more starches that I would have liked to today, and definitely feel the difference, especially after dong so well. I did get the 8 green meals in and kept off of sugar, though. I have a beet, parsley and an egg in my kitchen. You’re all invited to my house for breakfast in the morning. Thank you, Speedy, for this challenge. It was just what I needed. Hopefully I can keep it going, especially with the sugar.

Stacy · 12/21/2012 at 1:08 pm

I made it through the three days with a salad every day for lunch, no bread or crackers and I only licked the spatula while making a cake for my children and my fingers that had icing on them while decorating gingerbread houses with my daughter’s kindergarten class (I am only human-what else are you going to do when you get icing on your fingers?). But, I resisted the many cookies and chocolates in my house and the yummy looking Swedish bread my mother-in-law brought over.

The best part is that now I feel mostly out of the sweets habit and am way more thoughtful about it than I was before. Thanks!

Elena · 12/21/2012 at 12:59 pm

Day 3 done yesterday. 2 green meals and a small slice of apple pie at the work potluck. That puts me at 7/8 for A and making B. The evening went a downhill as there was beer and a 1/2 a burger, but hey I said no to the fries. Planning to keep up with at least one fully green meal per day through the weekend and the rest upped with more veg and protein and less on the cheese/refined carb goodness. Don’t really miss the sweets thankfully. Full disclosure: I am a gummi bear fiend, I get the little mini bags in bulk and have them at the office (4 bags are 150 calories) and I haven’t had ANY since Monday!

Angel · 12/21/2012 at 10:55 am

@Mairead. I get the shakes every time I see a dunkin donuts sign or see someone walking with a box of krispy kremes. If they were in front of me, I don’t know what I would do so I stay far away. I don’t trust myself. Good luck on redo of Day 3.

Sara K · 12/21/2012 at 8:52 am

Day 3 and challenge completed yesterday! I completed option B – I managed to not eat any sweets, baked goods, etc. I was very proud about this b/c this is the time of year I give into sweet temptation and with everything that was around, I managed to fight it and won! I also got in 4 green meals – had I not done my grocery shopping a little later I could have gotten more in. Moving forward, I’m going to have the goal of having 1 to 2 green meals a day – minor tweaks to what I already eat and I think this is totally doable.

mairead · 12/21/2012 at 7:25 am

Today is a Day 3 redo, I’m sure I’m violating the rules, BUT I realized yesterday that one of my green meals (spinach/couscous salad) had cheese on it, so I am starting off today with a banana/peanut butter green smoothie. Pretty good! Even though it’s green, I can’t even taste the spinach (so am closing my eyes when I drink it).

On another positive note, a friend brought donuts over to my house and I gave them to the dog walker. Temptation be gone!

I’ll post my Day 3 remix results later today!

Angie · 12/20/2012 at 8:21 pm

I gave in and had 3 chocolate covered bing cherries. According to the package, that’s about 85 calories. Wish I had resisted, but at least I didn’t partake in the obscene cookie buffet on my client’s desk! Aiming to be super clean tomorrow to finish the challenge on a high note! πŸ™‚

Slomo · 12/20/2012 at 8:14 pm

Day 2 has been a success. Green smoothie for breakfast (need to go get more greens for last day though), eggs and tons fo veggies for lunch, smoothie (not green, but no added sugar, obvio) for dinner. I’m so grateful for this challenge because it’s made me realize how often people give me food I would never buy for myself, and how often I eat it. This week I have given away so many sweets! Today it was just a piece of cake, but damn. No wonder I never need to buy that stuff for myself!

Carrie Bean · 12/20/2012 at 6:20 pm

Day 2 and 3: The cruel sweets taunted me in the Trader Joes check out line, but I put my foot down! I did have sugar free hot cocoa day 2 night with a few mini marshmallows. Today, I resisted the cookies in my all day meeting. All 11 of the rest of my team did not resist. I felt strong! Collectively, I hit under 300 calories of sweets across these 3 days. Yayyy!

Michelle N. · 12/20/2012 at 4:58 pm

NO DESSERTS (Day 3) I made it! The baking was a challenge, but I packed a few cookies for the road (aka tomorrow) and got outta that kitchen as fast as I could.

Cynthia · 12/20/2012 at 3:06 pm

2 Green meals today so far a 40 minute workout at lunch time. Redid the 6 min burpee challenge. (Longest 6 mins ever!) I am having grilled chicken and veggies for dinner before Zumba tonight and maybe a green smoothie afterwards. Went to several Holiday parties and didn’t even want to eat any sweets. πŸ™‚

I’ve lost 5 lbs since starting this challenge! Thanks Angel, this is exactly what I eeded.

FVR · 12/20/2012 at 2:30 pm

YAY I’M DONE IN 18 MINUTES! Finished off Day 3 with a green smoothie after a ridic workout (wonder with whom?) and then had a chicken ceasar salad for lunch, hold the cheese and croutons, dressing on the side. Tonight is my office holiday party, so I’ve been saving up for that. Lesson learned: Ok, so I probably won’t be eating 2 cups of veggies with every meal, but I learned that it’s not too painful to increase the amount of veggies I eat. I was vastly underestimating my portions. Also, a green smoothie ain’t too bad!!! πŸ™‚

Though I didn’t go all in for Option B, I did reduce my intake of sweets. A banana with peanut butter works wonders for satisfying my sweet tooth!

Felisha · 12/20/2012 at 11:45 am

Yesterday ended up being great. After taking some time to refocus my mind, I was able to relax and had a great day. I even added in some extra veggies. No sweets yet!

Hollywood · 12/20/2012 at 10:47 am

I believe I’ve maxed out on my 350 cal of sweets. I had a slither of cake (with a scoop of ice cream) at the office party yesterday. Other than that I haven’t had any sweets. That apple pie in my fridge is the devil, honey. That thang be callin’ me! For lunch I have a salad with a scoop of homemade chix salad- no dried fruit. Dinner I’m thinking a piece of haddock and veggies.

Elena · 12/20/2012 at 9:45 am

Day 2 done. 2 green meals and a green snack for the day. I added Greek yogurt for the morning an it really helped with the hunger. It was hard to not snack on the chocolate toffee crackers I made last night for the work potluck today but I stayed away! Today will be a challenge as we have the potluck and going out with some friends after work but i’ll get at least 2 green meals in today for sure. I did save all the sugar calorie allotment for today so I can carefully enjoy something homemade.

Sara K · 12/20/2012 at 9:12 am

Day 2 : I successfully stayed away from the sweets once again and yesterday was a big challenge. Potluck holiday lunch at work and an early Christmas celebration last night with some folks. For lunch, I had chicken salad just plain on the plate with lots of veggies and fresh fruit. I did have a few chips with guacamole but I stayed away from all of the really yummy looking desserts – it was hard as they were really taunting me. Dinner – we got burritos from one of my favorite places. I opted for a “burrito bowl” and loaded up with black beans, fresh salsa, cucumbers, corn, lettuce, guac and a little rice. Saying no to the wrap and staying away from the chips that were calling to me was a huge step for me as I’m a carboholic…

I got a good workout in this morning and am now having a green breakfast – steamed veggies and 2 hard boiled eggs.

Angel · 12/20/2012 at 7:49 am

@Slomo. You’re holding strong.

Angel · 12/20/2012 at 7:48 am

@Angie. Nice!

Angel · 12/20/2012 at 7:48 am

@FVR. No, it did not say PER day. (sigh) In other news, great job with the veggie consumption.

Angel · 12/20/2012 at 7:47 am

End of Day 2: 5 green meals consumed. Today, I will get in my last 3 meals. Eating kale and mango for breakfast right now. I have had no sweets but when this is over, I will take a giant spoon and stick it in a jar of gelato. Real talk.

mairead · 12/20/2012 at 7:37 am

Day 2 (Option A): Yesterday I drank an FVR inspired green smoothie (apple, banana, blueberry, kale) and ate 2 cups of brussels sprouts with turkey bacon for dinner. Lunch was a different story BUT I’ll make it up with 3 green meals today!

Angie · 12/19/2012 at 11:05 pm

Day 1: Closest thing to sugar consumed was a perfectly ripe pear. Bring it Day 2!

fvr · 12/19/2012 at 10:31 pm

So I misread option b and thought it was only 350 calories of sweets PER DAY. But honestly that is already a reduction for me…. Still going green and strong though! Day 2 was a kale and broccoi omelettes, a green smoothie for snack and 17 roasted Brussels sprouts at dinner, along with bbq chicken and potatoes. Two more green meals and I’m out!

Slomo · 12/19/2012 at 9:25 pm

Green smoothie for breakfast, mid-morning banana, green beans/carrots/corn and grilled fish for lunch, about to eat zucchini and eggplant omelette for dinner. Short but hard workout in the morning, insanity workout in the afternoon. Gave away box of chocolates someone gave me, didn’t go to the office kitchen when they had cake and coffee, and didn’t go again when someone made homemade crack corn. I messed up once, not gonna do it again.

Felisha · 12/19/2012 at 1:01 pm

Yesterday was harder than I thought it would be. I’d let more sweets (and restricted foods) sneak into my diet than I’d realized. Thankfully, I’d already set up a basic meal plan for the week, or it would have been really easy to make poor food choices. I woke up with a serious case of the “eff its” this morning though, so I took a few minutes to meditate on why these changes are important for me and my long-term goals. Still on track!

Stacy · 12/19/2012 at 12:40 pm

I currently eating my day 2 salad for lunch. Yummy with cucumbers, almond slivers and chicken. I went for the no sweets option and made it through day 1 without any. It is hard with two kids and a ton of cookies and chocolates laying around the house but, I am resisting. I did look at the box of my favorite seasonal Trader Joe’s cookie, the peppermint Jo Jo’s dipped in chocolate: 140 calories for one cookie. It was the first time I ever looked at the calories of that cookie so, I at least you got me checking….

I was really craving some crackers with my salad today but, thought I would go the extra step and skip those too along with foregoing bread for this three day challenge.

I went to a spin class yesterday and boot camp with Laurie today. Plan to spin tomorrow too.

Michelle N. · 12/19/2012 at 11:23 am

NO DESSERTS (Day 2) It was a pretty busy day for me so thankfully I didn’t really miss any sweets. BUT I volunteered to help a friend bake treats for donation tomorrow. That will be a challenge, but I’m hoping that if my regular meals are fulfilling I might make it through day 3 without too much temptation. We shall see!

Hollywood · 12/19/2012 at 9:53 am

I threw those little cinnamon jammies out in the trash last night. I’ve turned a blind eye to those delectable chocolates and I’m ignoring my giant bag-o-skittles. I had a healthy dinner last night and a good 30 minute work out. I feel like a champion.

Cynthia · 12/19/2012 at 9:51 am

Day 1 done and done!
Breakfast: Scrambled eggs w/spinach
Dinner: Chicken Bowl w/ brown rice/ corn/ black beans and pico

No sweets instead had 1/4 of a mango
After this mornings real ride I went and got a Green Smoothie. πŸ™‚

Angel · 12/19/2012 at 8:38 am

@Mairead. You are doing it! I posted some green smoothie recipes on the blog. Keep winning.

Angel · 12/19/2012 at 8:38 am

@Eliza. Good work. Remember, all veggies count. carrots, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, etc. These don’t require cooking. Just grab, go, and much. I’m so glad you’re here and glad that I can still feel you in my heart.

Angel · 12/19/2012 at 8:36 am

@CarrieBean. How dare he mention the word “cupcake”!! πŸ™‚ Great that you are going to modify your yogurt. You are going to win, CarrieBean!

Angel · 12/19/2012 at 8:34 am

@Felisha. Nice. And yes, most cereals are too sugary so good choice to add it in your plan. Great job.

Angel · 12/19/2012 at 8:33 am

@Elena. Awesome report. And yes, tea does taste sweet when there’s no cookie involved! Yes, please add in protein. You shouldn’t be hungry all day, especially with the amount of greens I’m suggesting. You did it! Day 2, here we go.

Angel · 12/19/2012 at 8:27 am

Day 1: I didn’t eat any sweets. But I thought about them. Last night, I opened my freezer and saw my gelato. I took the gelato and buried it underneath a bag of frozen broccoli then quickly closed the freezer! I only got in 2 green meals yesterday so I’m starting early today. Currently eating sauteed kale, onion, sweet potato mash for breakfast. I plan on winning today! How’d you do?

Angel · 12/19/2012 at 8:24 am

Hi Marsha! Thanks for joining. We are all a little afraid we won’t succeed but together, we will. Glad you are here!

marsha · 12/19/2012 at 7:35 am

I’ve decided to join in the fun! Mostly because my mind set this morning was that there is no way I can achieve option A. It scares me. It sucks, your mind holding you back like that. so I’ve begun. like you said, one meal at a time.

Elena · 12/18/2012 at 11:00 pm

Ok day one done!! 3 green meals and no sugary snacks.
Lessons learned: I usually don’t have much at breakfast since I don’t like eating early and having eggs and spinach really kicked off my metabolism and I was hungry all day. Having clementines at work saved me from going out post lunch and indulging in something sugary. Herbal tea tasted sweeter by itself when there’s no cookie to compare it to. Stash tea makes this lovely Acai berry caffeine free tea.
Definitely need more protein at lunch and will add a green snack tomorrow for between lunch and dinner. Dinner was the easiest since I had a plan and just skipped the rice my husband had with the salmon and veggies.
To add to the fun, I even worked out before dinner and did a couple sets of pushups πŸ™‚
Looking forward to day 2!

Felisha · 12/18/2012 at 5:09 pm

Okay, you’ve got me, Angel! I’m doing Option B. I’m going to include cereal in that last as well.

Carrie Bean · 12/18/2012 at 4:10 pm

Going to cut the Chobani for a few days and do yogurt with cinnamon or real fruit as suggested, Angel. Thanks!! Trying to go virtually added sugar free even this is not a totally sans sugar assignment. Another success…boyfriend was talking about getting a Georgetown cupcake when I go hit City Sports this week in Gtown. I joked with him, ” Are you serious right now? I’m aiming for treat free for the next 3 days. Trying to derail me?” Know that Gtown cupcake is my all-time favorite. Sorry red velvet, we’ll have to meet up at a later date.

Eliza · 12/18/2012 at 3:15 pm

So far so good! Had a LOT of spinach with egg whites this morning..followed by a huge spinach salad with tuna at lunch. Need to do more variety but really busy right now so making it work!

Mairead · 12/18/2012 at 2:12 pm

Option A for me, with a buddy system to keep me in check! Just bought some kale for smoothies (first time ever!) and had a spinach/pepper omelette this morning for breakfast and a salad for lunch. For dinner, baked acorn squash with black beans and tomatoes. And TRYING to stay accountable to Option B!

Angel · 12/18/2012 at 1:00 pm

@Sara K. step away from the table! So are you doing both or not? I was confused by your wording.

Angel · 12/18/2012 at 12:57 pm

@Dee. Glad your joining us this time around. Let’s get it.

Angel · 12/18/2012 at 12:57 pm

@michelle. Awesome.

Angel · 12/18/2012 at 12:56 pm

@CarrieBean. This is not a “no sugar” challenge. I have done one previously where we had to eliminate all things with sugar in it, like ketchup, yogurt, salad dressing. That’s not what this particular challenge is about. However, I put splenda under the honey, agave nectar category. Again, this isn’t about elimination just reduction. I doubt you are eating 350 calories worth of splenda. And your raspberry yogurt is acceptable but if you want to step it up a notch, I would suggest plain yogurt with cinnamon added on top or a few nuts. Or add your own fruit in.

Angel · 12/18/2012 at 12:52 pm

@Angie. I am also praying for strength.

Angel · 12/18/2012 at 12:52 pm

@Hollywood. OMG did you just describe all of those sweets. You are torturing me!! Fruit is allowed. Dried fruit is not.

Angie · 12/18/2012 at 12:26 pm

Option B (Wed – Fri). Getting veggies in, no prob. Keeping sweets out, lord give me strength….

Dee · 12/18/2012 at 11:01 am

I’m in! Starting today…I might just do option A and B. I could use a little kick in the pants to get me back in the routine. I’ve been reading your posts for the longest, but haven’t been motivated to do anything but eat lately. It’s time to turn that corner. After these 3 days, I should be back in the saddle.

Hollywood · 12/18/2012 at 9:56 am

Option A won’t be a challenge for me, so Option B it is. Even though I’m not big on sweets I’ve fallen victim to all the holiday treats. I’ve been going IN on that apple pie i have at home. Let’s not talk about the peppermint bark Ghirardelli chocolates in my pantry. Or those sessy cinnamon things with the glaze that melt in your mouf. Oh my word! Oh, and the giant box of skittles in my drawer at work. Ok, ok…I can do this…starting tomorrow (wed/thurs/fri). Natural sugar is ok, yes? I have about 4 more oranges and some red delicious apples to take care of.

Carrie Bean · 12/18/2012 at 9:48 am

Clarifying question as I don’t want to cheat on the sweets…what is the stance on Splenda, Starbucks sugar-free syrups, and yogurts like Chobani that have the fruit in them? Re: the yogurt: I’m particularly curious how sugar from milk and fruit contribute to this challenge…or how they don’t. For instance, my Chobani raspberry yogurt comes in at 140 calories, 19 g sugar. Deciding whether or not to make another choice across these 3 days!

Sara K · 12/18/2012 at 9:43 am

I will be better about posting! That is one of my goals πŸ˜‰

I will be taking on option B the sweets challenge (no sweets for 3 days) and also working on option A. Normally I’m not much of a sweets person but this time of year – the caramel, dark chocolate and the mint and chocolate combo are hard to resist. Did I mention the table shortly outside of my office is COVERED in this stuff right now?!?!

Michelle N. · 12/18/2012 at 9:36 am

NO DESSERTS (Day 1) – Not bad at all. Had a big leafy green salad for lunch… which I got halfway through before realizing that I’d put a few dried apricot pieces in there. I’ll count that as 150cal. Otherwise, no sweets or sweeteners.

Stacy · 12/18/2012 at 8:21 am

I am going to go for B because sweets are my weakness. I will also commit to salad for lunch for the next few days- I still have some lovely lettuce growing in my garden- which is such a treat, but one I often dismiss because of the extra work involved. There is nothing like fresh picked garden lettuce…

Carrie Bean · 12/18/2012 at 7:43 am

Option 2! Sweets are always an issue for this girl. Starts today (Tuesday)!

Victoria · 12/17/2012 at 11:14 pm

I’m doing both options and I will start on Tuesday. Option B will definitely be the harder part of the challenge for me. I LIVE for sweets, and it seems like every time I turn around, someone at work is giving away some type of baked good.

Angel · 12/17/2012 at 11:07 pm

@Emily. Awesome. Check in Wednesday night so I know how your first day went.

Emily Arden · 12/17/2012 at 11:04 pm

I’m going for option A and will start Wednesday (I’m outta town today and tomorrow so buying groceries and cooking won’t be able to happen till then).

Angel · 12/17/2012 at 10:50 pm

@Slomo. Really? You were just talking about that? Too funny. Thank you for giving away the baked goods. You made someone else very happy. And now, you’re one step closer to that weight loss. Let’s get it, Slomo. ES!

Slomo · 12/17/2012 at 10:20 pm

Since my last post wasn’t long enough…..I forgot to say, I’m starting tomorrow (moment of silence for the cookies).

Slomo · 12/17/2012 at 10:12 pm

I was JUST eating dinner with my roommate, who made these amazing cookies (pretty healthy, but still cookies), and we were JUST saying, “I bet Angel will put up a nutrition challenge today and we’ll have to give the rest of these away.” You’re so good. I’m definitely doing both, because my meals are pretty much always “green.” Also, I have a fridge full of fruits, veggies, and eggs, and 24 cents in my bank account, so besides the cookies it’s actually perfect timing. This week I’ve given away all of the sweets that were gifted to me for the holidays, including a basket I won with two weeks worth of food (did I mention I only have 24 cents in the bank?). It felt double-good to not be eating the stuff I was giving away AND make someone who wasn’t doing Angel’s challenge super happy at the same time! Let’s do this. ES

Angel · 12/17/2012 at 9:32 pm

@michelle. I have sweet tooth, too! Good luck.

Michelle N. · 12/17/2012 at 9:29 pm

Option b for me. I have a terrible sweet tooth. Starting in Tuesday.

Angel · 12/17/2012 at 9:27 pm

@FVR. I’m certain this isn’t hell. And you don’t have name 8 veggies. Just eat 8 meals with veggies in them. Good luck.

Fvr · 12/17/2012 at 9:11 pm

Oh god this is the 7th circle of hell for sure. I’m doing option 1. I don’t think I can even name 8 different vegetables. Lord help me.

Jessica · 12/17/2012 at 8:51 pm

I’m jumping on the band wagon and doing both. Same thing as Sania, usually B isn’t that hard–I’m more of a salt person–but with holiday sabotage all around, I’m including it.

Angel · 12/17/2012 at 8:18 pm

@Laura. I stare down every cupcake I see. Cupcakes are the devil.

Angel · 12/17/2012 at 8:17 pm

@yashiko. You can do it, girl! Get that body ready.

Angel · 12/17/2012 at 8:17 pm

@Sania. Yes, I have brilliant timing. πŸ™‚

Angel · 12/17/2012 at 8:16 pm

@Cynthia. THe good thing is that doing option A will help with Option B. Yes, I’m a genius. πŸ™‚

Angel · 12/17/2012 at 8:16 pm

@Eliza. You gotta know yourself. Thanks for keeping it real.

Angel · 12/17/2012 at 8:16 pm

@Elena. Any protein will work as long as it isn’t fried. Veggie soup is acceptable.

Angel · 12/17/2012 at 8:15 pm

@Sania Yes, you can have your post-workout drink.

Laura Christine · 12/17/2012 at 8:01 pm

I’m in!!! You saw how hard I was staring down those cupcakes at the Revolve party last week, so Option B it is. I love my green smoothies, Option A is living life!

Cynthia · 12/17/2012 at 7:34 pm

I will do both options. I have a major sweet tooth.

Sania F. · 12/17/2012 at 7:20 pm

I usually don’t eat sweets so I am choosing Option 1 but I will also include Option 2 into it. I do have one question. I drink a protein drink each morning after my workout, milk with a scoop of muscle milk powder. Is that allowed? Probably not but just checking! I will start tomorrow! Of course, this is the week everyone has decided to bake cookies but I will be strong!!!!

Yashiko · 12/17/2012 at 7:20 pm

I am in for Option 1…..:)

Elena · 12/17/2012 at 6:40 pm

You listed salmon as ok for the veggie meals, is chicken ok too? What about a veggie soup (homemade veggie stock is simmering today and I had plans for it this week).
I will go for both starting tomorrow, it’ll be a challenge to give up cheese for 3 days and I’ll have to save up the sweets for the company potluck on Thursday.
