IP really is a great diet!
I tried other low carb/super low calorie diets with prescribed medicine to help them work....I lost a LOT of weight FAST but my health suffered.
Looks like many do the IP diet with alternatives and learn the balanced nutrition of eating lean meats & veggies along with the "treat" of IP puddings, wafers, shakes.
Following the phases should get you on track for a balanced diet for life.
