LEAP Diet Phase 2

After struggling through phase 1 with only 2 proteins and 2 veggies (I ate a lot of bananas and pecans), I must say that it was well worth it. I have literally no bloating when I’m done a meal and I’ve lost about 3 to 4 lbs and can finally fit into a bridesmaid dress I need to wear in a month.

The first 3 to 6 days are brutal on phase 1. I actually felt worse for 4 days. On the 5th day everything changed. I felt absolutely wonderful for the first time. I’m not proud of this, but I forgot to take my meds because I felt so much like my old self!

I’m now 3 days into phase 2 and I’ve introduced clams and mushrooms. I’m preparing scallops and broiled cod tonight with fresh ginger and mushroom spinach. Tomorrow I will have some pickled beets!

I seriously feel wonderful. I hope this continues. Here’s the remaining list of phase 2 items I’ll be introducing over the next 15 days:

  • Shrimp
  • Lentils
  • Broccoli
  • Green peas
  • Canteloupe
  • Pear
  • Raspberry
  • Olive
  • Pistachio
  • Hazelnuts
  • Peanut
  • Paprika
  • Mustard
  • Oregano

So many favorites coming back into my diet. Hoping they will get to stay!

Until next time, here’s some food I’ve been eating on the LEAP program:
