Welcome.

I will say that it is expensive (at least for me) but it is a program that works for me. Admittedly, I have never done any other diet before (no WW, etc.) other than exercise and limiting calories. The weight was VERY slow to come off when I did that. I know now that I wasn't approaching my limitations correctly.

Ketogenic diet, as I said above, has worked for me incredibly well. I have lost 40 pounds of the 60 that I want to initially lose within 12 weeks - I started May 17. I am incredibly happy. But it is a program where I have buy food and supplements - something that a part of me resents. But it works. So, in my mind, I am going to make other sacrifices for a while for my health which is priceless.

As for cutting costs, a lot of people use alternatives to IP foods and have great success. I am just too scared and disorganized to do it. I will let those folks chime in ...
