Hi all! I've been on IP since late Oct and have lost 21 lbs. I've been lurking here since about mid Nov when really needing some ideas for the packets. I don't enjoy the IP packets much but have to admit the diet is the most effective I've tried. I was diagnosed with cancer 10 years ago and went into early menopause from the chemo treatments and have had a heck of a time gaining and not being able to lose weight since. IP was been far the most effective but I do struggle with the packets. Do best when I enhance them with veggie and protein, splitting my dinner allotment. Have went off plan a bit during Christmas week. Haven't gained but haven't lost either. Ready to get strictly OP agin and lose some more lbs. thanks to all those who have posted helpful advice and IP friendly recipes. Hope to give back some!
