Amie Menu:
Breakfast: Orange
Lunch: 100g BSCB (Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast) with garlic and rosemary, a few squirts of Bragg's aminos, a capful of ACV and about 90g of cabbage. 1 Melba toast.
Dinner: 100g veal with garlic, Bragg's aminos and ground pepper. I started weighing my veggies per Biz's advice and I realized just how much of your veggie you can eat and still stay under 500 cal's! I weighed out just over 150g of cabbage tonight for dinner (that seems to be my fave lately!) and I could hardly get it all down!! I'm very happy with how full and satisfied I feel now after eating all of that. Very encouraging. I'm debating whether or not I'll be eating my second fruit and Melba tonight. We'll see. Oh yes, about 1 T of spicy mustard on the side for dipping/dressing. Spartan spicy mustard rocks.

Eddie's Menu:
Breakfast: Orange & coffee with FIVE PACKETS of powdered stevia! He's been having issues with lethargy and hunger today, and I think that it has something to do with the lack of veggies and the powdered stevia. He says he's been using between four and seven packets per day, so it is a very good possibility. We went to Apple Valley Foods today and got a big bottle of liquid stevia extract, so should be set now. I almost got the Chocolate flavor, but we have to budget very carefully this week. :(
Lunch: 100g BSCB grilled on the Foreman with garlic & pepper, one sliced tomato and one Melba toast.
Dinner: 100g veal seasoned with crushed red pepper and horseradish and black pepper. 180g of cabbage cooked in the juice, which I found out is delicious so I'm SO going to boil up some broth this weekend, and one Melba. Eddie was way stuffed with that amount of cabbage and said he probably wouldn't make that much at once again. I'm amazed that so much less food than before will make us full! Today was a big test also, because we got my daughter Wendy's for dinner. Neither of us had eaten yet, and I was AMAZED that I didn't even want to munch on her fries. If one thing has been my downfall, it has been fast food. I am so so so addicted to it, and though I think about Taco Bell from time to time between meals, when it is actually in front if me I don't want any of it.

I love hcg.

Totally excellent for you with the resisting, OMG! You are having awesome results. The cravings will leave you. Sometimes it's actually kinda sad. Only because I thought I really liked that stuff and it's like losing a friend!

GO YOU!!!!

During my first round soup was my best friend!
