Q. How Do I Stay on Track on Cycle 2 With Too Many Food Choices?
A. This question came up today on the 17DD Blog Facebook page and I thought, “Wow, what a great question!” During my time in Cycle 2, I felt the anxiety of having too many choices during the Cycle 2 days. After being on Cycle 1 and having so many restrictions, Cycle 2 with it’s every other day approach was somewhat challenging for me. On my Cycle 2 days during this phase, I found it a bit easier to “cheat” and eat a bit more of this or some of that.
If you find that you may not have the willpower to stay on track during Cycle 2, consider having two Cycle 1 days, then one Cycle 2 day, and so on. In the end, this may make it a bit easier for you to acclimate to the structure of Cycle 2 and get you prepared for Cycle 3.
Do you have any tips that have helped you stay on track during Cycle 2? If so, please share them in the comments section.
