I ate and drank whatever I wanted, because hey, how many times do you get to eat wine, cheese and bread for dinner while in Paris (not very IP friendly!!). The first time I ate French fries I was in the bathroom the entire next day (not fun on vacation!) so I quickly learned that fried food wasn't going to agree with my new metabolism.

Long story short, is I came home, PETRIFIED of what I would see on the scale, fully expecting a 10-15 lb. gain, and I only gained 2 lbs!! I couldn't believe it. Between the walking, drinking so much water, and my new IP metabolism, my body actually worked with me instead of against me.

The moral of the story is TRUST IP! Even when you go on vacation and break loose from the strict confines of Phase 1, your body still remembers and will help you through. I am back on phase 1 as of this morning and couldn't be happier to continue this journey towards goal.
Paris (sigh) sounds heavenly. I can't imagine going and not having some of the delicious food! It is so smart of you to have phased off prior to your trip. Way to go! It is amazing how IP works.
