    1. Hi, what are some substitues for the P3 recipes that calls for bacon and beef? Also, is it ok to eat products from beyond meat during P3?

      1. Rayzel says:

        Hi there! So sorry I’m just seeing this comment- if you need our input you’ll get fast reply if you email us [email protected]. I wasn’t able to see the ingredients in the beyond meat producs to tell. If they are high in carbs being plant based, I’m not sure that would work very well. For replacing beef you can you use just about any other meat you like. Bacon- for that you could probably just leave it out or use a little nutritional yeast for savory since it’s a small ingredient.

      Where do you get the walnut oil. Is it a cooking oil or a flavoring?

      1. Rayzel says:

        Hey Janet! I bought mine at my local health food store, but you could probably just as easily use olive oil and a little walnut flavor extract if you like.

      I have a few questions.
      1. Day 1 on P3 and I will be traveling! I ate at a local restaurant last week on P2 and had an egg beaters omelet with onions and spinach. It was great and didn’t have a gain. I am planning on eating there again. What can I add to that same omelet? Should I have the egg beaters or the 3 egg (& ask for no fillers) crumbled sausage or bacon? or should I stick with more veggies?
      2. Week 2 I will be back traveling for 4 days at a hotel with no cooking area. I will be eating out daily-do you have a good sample menu for traveling?

      1. Rayzel says:

        Hi there! Regarding your Q’s:
        1. I think to that you can add a little butter or olive oil for some fat and additional veggies of your choice if you like too. Or yes for fat instead of olive oil or butter some bacon- just keep the bacon to maybe 1 strip’s worth (eyeball it or ask how much bacon is put in it).
        2. My best advice for eating out like that is to stick with lean protein and veggies – and meaning something like squash or green beans etc – salads often can have the drawback of being high calorie while at the same time not being very filling because the lettuce isn’t filling, but then the dressing is very high calorie for how much they put and then you end up eating too many calories yet not feeling satisfied with what you ate. So like a lean sirloin steak + grilled squash and carrots and green beans for instance, or bruschetta chicken breast (the bruschetta may have a little sugar, but likely it would be small and if you aren’t eating any other “carbs” seems likely to be fine), – wild salmon w/veggies, etc. – check the menu to see what sorts of veggies they serve in various dishes, and you can likely request a special ala carte side dish of some of those veggies. Avoid fried stuff obviously (we have these AWESOME fried brussel sprouts at a local pub but they are literally dripping in oil when they come- the bowl is probably like 2000 calories alone lol). I hope this helps you! You’ll be just fine- quite a few ladies find themselves in this situation and by making choices like the above, they do quite well!

    4. Hi, I’m wondering whether it’s okay to use Dr. price Electrolyte Mix in P3? It looks like it should be okay, but wonder whether you’ve tried it. Thanks!

      1. Rayzel says:

        Hello! If what you’re asking about is this product or almost this: http://drpricesvitamins.com/electrolyte-mix-lemon-lime.html Then yes, definitely fine for P3!

        1. Yes exactly! However, I notice you specify lemon-lime here. Are other flavors of this product just as okay for P3? Thanks!

          1. Rayzel says:

            I THink as long as it doesnโ€™t have Sugar it should be fine!

      2. Hi…I’m actually wondering if it’s okay to use Dr. Price Electroyte Mix in P2!?

        1. Rayzel says:

          The flavor I looked at online was P3 acceptable for sure! Sweetened with stevia. Hope that helps!

    5. Wait, I see it now! At the TOP of the Master Pantry list. I was looking at the bottom and everywhere else. Found it – thanks!

    6. Hi Rayzel Chica! I know I saw somewhere a recommendation you gave for ordering good sugar-free spice brands (didn’t I?), but now I can’t find it. Can you direct me to that please? Or just link it here – whatever’s easiest for you. I know Frontier is good but want to know what you suggest also. Thanks!
      BTW, Frontier makes an incredible Indian Curry Seasoning Blend (turmeric, coriander & lemon) plus an awesome organic Garam Massala Seasoning Blend (cardamom, cinnamon & cloves). Non GMO, Non ETO Non-Irradiated. Just a quick shake and everything is tasty FYI for anyone who’s interested!

    7. Hi Rayzel! I have a question for you in regards to the master pantry list! I pretty much have purchased everything & started p3 today. OMG the balcony egg cups were to die for & the Indian Curry was INSANE! I cant wait to eat tomorrow LOL….. I have a few questions:

      1. Peanut Butter – Which brand do you recommend? I’m not so experienced with all this & would rather you just recommend a brand & I get it versus the anxiety of choosing my own – which thanks to your video, I have built better confidence in decision making with labels! ๐Ÿ™‚

      2. That p2 Apple BBQ Meatza Pizza (I use ZERO cal Walden Farms BBQ Sauce) — Am I allowed to have this Apple Meatza on p3? I am craving for this again soon badly as it satisfies my pizza craving. Or if not, is there a supplemental one that’s geared for p3?

      3. Organic Sun-dried tomatoes – I am craving these so badly – just even as a snack or to put in a salad or a meal in a small qty. Is this allowed? I saw some at Whole Foods in a jar that read the following: Serving Size: 3 pieces = 30 cal. Fat: 0.5g, Sodium: 220mg, Carb: 4g, Sugars: 3g. No added stuff. I can clearly see this is not the BEST choice but was simply wondering if in moderation, I can have a serving size?

      3. I ordered my items from the links provided (what was available) but there were some staples that I had to purchase in store either bc it was not PRIME shipping or not ample time. So, I was wondering what you feel is THE BEST decision with these nutrition labels. For example: Balsamic Vinegar. I believe in my notes I put that you’d like it to be 2g sugar or LESS. So my questions is… I was at Whole Foods & ran into all these BV’s.

      1. One BV had 10 calories per serving, Fat: 0g, Sodium: 0g, Carb: 3g, Sugars: 3g, Protein: 0g. Ingredients: “Concentrated Grape-Must & Caramel (color).
      2. The next BV choice had 15 calories per serving, Fat: 0g, Sodium: 0mg, Carb: 3g, Sugars: 2g, Protein: 0g. Ingredients: Wine Vinegar & Concentrated Grape Must.
      3. Next choice was an Organic one & had 5 calories per serving, Fat: 0g, Sodium: 5mg, Carb: 2g, Sugars: 2g, Protein: 0g. Ingredients: Organic Wine Vinegar, Organic Concentrated Grape-Must, Contains naturally occurring sulfites.

      I understand that SUGAR is very important & this 3rd one seems like the best choice to me because it covers low calorie + low sugar, however, the SODIUM concerned me. Can you help me understand which is not that important in P2 & P3 & how to best eliminate in a situation like this? I have watched the video about helping to make better confident choices & it helped drastically… This one just stumped me so I bought both bottles & can return one. PS – The ingredients did not show added sugar from my understanding for any of them. Only did #1 mention “concentrated grape-must & caramel (color).

      Sorry this is sooooooo lengthy! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL THAT YOU DO! ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Rayzel says:

        Hiya! Here’s my A’s- hope it helps:
        1. The Pb2 I used is here – it has a tiny amount of sugar as you’ll see but it’s so small as to not effect anything –
        2. Apple Meatza (for others reading that P2 recipe is here: http://hcgchicarecipes.com/recipe/p2-hcg-diet-bbq-chicken-apple-pizza-onion-arugula/) On this- it might be okay- the only thing is we don’t ever really eat an entire apple in one sitting on P3 – the carbs are more carefully controlled in the program when it comes to fruit than during P2 – I might try making this pizza and have just 1/4 to 1/2 an apple on your serving. Other than that the other ingredients are fine!
        3. Sundried tomatoes: If you include it in your macros to try to match what you see listed for each week in the program it should be fine. These are typically high calorie being soaked in oil- so squeeze the oil out and use in moderation as a topping, not a main thing.
        4. Re the balsamic – If the serving is 1 tbsp for all of those, any of those choices are totally fine. It’s the 30 cal per 1 tbps serving ones that are a problem that have a lot more sugar in them. Even the 15 calorie one is just fine. With the amounts you use per serving in the program, it works out. So your choice there!
        5. Travel snack suggestions: For these items- these are definitely something to save for if you really can’t do your P3tolife meal- like you said, if you are traveling – even then, if you can bring a cooler and still have some P3tolife meals and then use these only as needed that would be good- the thing is any packaged foods are going to be a lot less filling and satisfying and calorie dense than the real P3tolife meals, which means that it’s harder to eat the calories in the plan because you find yourself wanting to eat more- that’s the challenge there. I think the Nush cakes are a good choice in that they are filling and have lots of fiber so those would probably be a better choice earlier in P3. For anything with major nuts, I’d try to wait on that if possible till week 2 or 3. Same with the chocolate, unless you can manage to only eat a tiny bit (I don’t do too good with that lol!) This is really more about designing meals that make you feel mentally/emotionally satisfied so that you eat the right amount for your body whil stabilizing and the calories are lower than you will be eating in regular life during weeks 1 & 2 so having calorie dense foods (like nuts, or the chocolate bar which is mostly cocoa butter/fat, or jerky etcs) will use up all those calories very quickly for only a small volume of food, and the danger is that it will be hard to feel satisfied. That’s all. I hope that makes sense.

        I hope that helps get you started!


    8. Question. Do you know at what point (week) can you move from maintenance to keto? (I want to eat keto for health not to loose more weight.)

      1. Rayzel says:

        Hiya! I think you could probably experiment with moving to Keto in week 4 or beyond- that’s just a guess! But by then your weight should be adjusted and more stable. I hope that helps!
