R6 Phase 2 Day 23

Weight - 133.6

No loss today.  That's okay.  At least there's not been a rebound.  My calories were on the low side tonight so I did have some chocolate delight in the evening.  That adds about 200 calories of fat that is used by the liver rather than normal means.

Lunch - (193 calories)
100 g beef eye of round roast
150 g cucumber
100 g tomato
P2 dressing
1 grissini stick

Dinner - (139 calories)
1.5 portions of Shredded Tex-Mex Crock-Pot Chicken
100 g romaine lettuce for wraps

Shredded Tex-Mex Crock-Pot Chicken

This recipe comes from TKSinclair's Blog.  The original recipe was made for use in the 17 Day Diet Cycle 1.  I have modified it for Phase 2 purposes.  The original calls for 1 tbsp of oil to saute the onions.  Instead I added a bit of chicken broth.

Don't forget to weigh your chicken raw to calculate the number of servings you will have when done.  ie 1000 g of chicken would be 10 servings.  Weight the finished product and divide by the number of servings to get your P2 portion weight.

Serves 4
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 1/4 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/3 cup chicken broth
1/3 cup (packed) cilantro leaves, chopped
2 limes
1 large onion, chopped
1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil  **Not in P2


**(Heat the oil in a medium sized sauté pan)  If for Phase 2 of hcg, heat a couple of tbsp of chicken broth or water. Add the onion and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the cumin, chili powder, coriander, paprika and garlic and sauté two more minutes. Deglaze the pan with the chicken broth making sure to scrape up any browned bits. Turn off and set aside.

Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Add to crock pot. Squeeze the lime on top, add the cilantro, jalapeno, and pour the onion and garlic mixture over top.

Cook on low for 3-5 hours, or until cooked through (different crock-pots cook at varying heats) and tender. Remove chicken breasts from the crock pot, shred and place in a bowl. Scoop out the onions and add to the chicken. Depending on the amount of juices produced, you may want to add some or all of the juice back to the shredded chicken.

Kitchen Tip: To easily juice the lime, heat in the microwave for a few seconds and then roll it on the counter top a few times like you are kneading it. Then slice in half and squeeze. Or use a hand juicer.
Recipe Note: You could also prepare this recipe in a pressure cooker.  Cook for about 12 minutes on high pressure.

R6 Phase 2 Day 22

Weight - 133.6

Well, that's something new.  All prepared for a rebound after 2 lbs yesterday and I get another .8 loss.  Amazing.  Could it be that the rx was just not what my body needed and the MyHCGWay Patches?  I know when I did a planned interruption last round and came back on with the patches, it really kick-started the losses.  This time I switched over from injections to the patch with a couple of days overlap.  Now that the rx is out of my system, suddenly I've lost 2.8 lbs in two days.

Lunch - (210 calories)
100 g beef eye of round roast
160 g romaine

R6 Phase 2 Day 21

Weight - 134.4

I had to check the scale several times this morning.  2 lbs?  and in the right direction.  I'm fully braced for rebound tomorrow.

I did my Sunday omelet for lunch.  I've not been doing those this round to date so it was a welcomed change.

R6 Phase 2 Day 20

Weight 136.4

Oh joy.. I stayed the same.  Sucky.  I'm eating somewhat normal P2 today and I did not inject.  I'm going to fly with the patches for a while and see how things go.  I did walk again today.  First time in 6 days.  Since my weight hasn't changed during that time I guess I can safely say the walking is not hampering losses.

Lunch - (220 calories)
**Spicy Beef & Celery Soup
100 g beef eye of round roast
165 g celery, diced
1 tbsp dried minced onion
2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp cumin

1 cup water
96 g red apple

Dinner - (134 calories)
**Pico Chicken and A Salad
100 g grilled chicken breast
2 tbsp pico de gallo
150 g romaine

R6 Phase 2 Day 19

Weight - 136.4

I am doing one more day of increase protein and then going back to regular.  I am also including 2 tbsp of chocolate delight tonight in hopes if kicking up my metabolism.

On top of all this I slapped on a MyHCGWay patch yesterday.  I injected yesterday and today, but I am thinking I'm going to roll with just the patches and see if it makes a difference.  My DIL is still doing injections and I can give her the rest of my mixed vial.  I used the patches for 18 days of last round after taking a planned interruption and did very well with them.

Breakfast - (129 calories)
200 g Fage 0% Greek yogurt
35 g strawberries
lemon drop stevia to taste

Lunch - (147 calories)
100 g beef eye of round roast
85 g spinach
P2 mustard dressing

Afternoon snack - (110 calories)
1 scoop Jay Robb Chocolate Whey Protein

Dinner - (127 calories)
100 g chicken breast
150 g cucumber

I am having 2 tbsp of chocolate delight but they claim you don't count the calories in your daily totals.
