I need a reboot and can't afford IP products right now.

I'm planning on using the bars from costco (forgot the name) as my restricted.

Here are the info:

EstroSoy – French Vanilla

Cholesterol-free, dairy-free, and with no added sugar. Suitable for high protein/low carbohydrate diets, vegetarian friendly, with each 25 g serving offering 21 g of protein, 1g of carbohydrates and 0 g of sugars. Mixes easily and comes in a tasty French Vanilla flavour.

It certainly looks like it follows IP alternative guidelines, with the exception of the amount of protein grams. However, I use a powdered protein drink I buy at a local nutrition store and it has 25g protein per serving. I have had no issues with my weight loss and don't think this raises my protein grams to a level that would be considered high. For my other packets during the day I have a lower total protein item, so maybe it balances out. I have seen that others use products with a slightly higher protein amount as well.

Don't look back, you're not going that way!
