These 2 sentences are worrisome to me for a few reasons.
1. If you truly don't feel like you have cravings for "bad" carbs, sweets, etc., you are fine to just start this diet in P2. Note: you STILL have to eat the P1 minimums, you just add in good starches and fruit to those minimums in P2.
2. I am extremely concerned that you may not understand exactly what SB is. It is NOT a quick-loss diet. It is not even designed as a weight loss diet, weight loss is just a happy side effect of eating this way. If you were on another diet for 3 weeks and switched to SB because you didn't lose weight as fast as you thought you should, you are likely to be very disappointed. It is unlikely that you will suddenly start losing weight quickly on SB. Especially if you don't have a great deal to lose. The less you have to lose, the longer it takes and the more committed to this way of eating you will need to be. If you don't understand that going in, and understand the principles of SB, you are not likely to find success and will be frustrated and quit. Please read the book when you get it, search and read online here so that you truly can understand how this all works.
I hope you can wholeheartedly adopt this WOE, it is a great LIFETIME "diet"!
(FWIW, I'm 29, 5', 115lbs. I'm on SB and believe in it to eat better, feel better, and be healthier for my future!)
