Am I correct in understanding that for P3 & P4 you need to do 6 weeks of each? I'm just making sure in my planning.

That depends on whether you have done "back to back rounds" or there has been at least six months since your last round. Linda can clarify, but I think it is 6 weeks each P3 and P4 between rounds 3 and 4 and between rounds 4 and 5, it is actually 10 weeks in each. The timing between rounds was increased becasue alot of people who were doing multiple rounds were having a hard time stabilizing, so this allows you to move more slowly and make sure you are maintaining well before adding in the starches.

Yes after round 4 it is 10 weeks each phase. - Linda.

10 weeks in P3 before I can try adding a sweet potatoe or a little brown rice or a glass of wine? I'm just about done with R4.

What if it has been 6 months between rd3 and r4? Still wait 10 weeks to introduce carbs and sugar?

That depends on if your weight is stable. If it is then I would try a small amount of sugar and starch if you gain dramatically, give it another week.
