I'm on week one also. I haven't picked out a plan....except I have cut out sugar and all sodas (diet and otherwise), and all "empty calories". I eat breakfast....didn't do that before....a little yogurt, grapenuts, half a banana and a few walnuts...and I am drinking a lot of water. I am eating small portions and cooking everything from scratch...so more vegetables, and lots of salad and not eating after 6 pm. I have been on every diet in the world, I think, and I am trying to just eat healthy. I know what to do....it is just doing it. I feel motivated, so far. I need to lose 45 lb. I would say more...but since I am 65, I don't think I want to go much below 145...but will see....once I get there.

Good luck to you....maybe we can motivate each other along the way.

Congratulations for starting your new food plan! I hope to join you soon, am doing more research on IP...it is costly and am concerned I will be hungry

Hi Y'all!

I'm on week 2. I'm doing basically semi-low to low carbs (lots of veggies and a little fruit) and high protein. The protein helps my appetite and craving much better than anything else. I'm trying the carb cycling. Two low carb days, followed by one or more semi-low, with an occasional high carb thrown in to stoke the metabolism. Doing a similar thing with exercise. Lift weights at least every other day with PACE (similar) to HIITs on other days. At least one rest day per week.

Looking forward to getting to know you and follow your progress. Together we will meet our goals.

Default Starting wk. 2!

I started out on this IP plan and must of had a flu bug, I was sick, the first day. My coach told me to drink mint tea(helped), and second day was better. WI was today, I dropped 12 lbs. I'm surprised, but I know this is working, every week can't be this good, it's a great start! I've found I'm not a big fan of the soups, and does anyone have ideas, for the puddings. I love the chocolate drink, an cappuccino(I use it in my coffee). Good luck to everyone, I made it through wk. 1!

I could binge on nutter butter cookies, at the drop of a hat. The receipes on this 3FC is really helpful. The salad dressing was really alot better than WF. Stay strong, we can do this together!

Hi Melodyjoy! Your plan sounds good, on my plan, fruits aren't allowed(for now), with summer, and all the lucious fruits I crave. Gonna be tough.. I'm only lifting light weights, for now. We're on the right path! Stay strong!

Hi cscape! (love the beach!), I did research for 1 mo. prior to starting IP. Yes, it's costly, I'm trying to lose enough to get off the expensive medications, I'm on now. To me, that's a good trade off. About being hungry, you can have up to 5 packets a day, the 1st wk. only, to help with any hunger issues. Most of the drinks, are good, I'm glad I made the 1st step. Good luck to you, an Keep in touch!

I need to get some weights. I had some, but never used them, so I gave them to my daughter. I've been riding my exercise bike 3 times a day. I am down five pounds. I expect it to go slower next week, but I'm happy for any drop in the scale.

Keep fighting the good fight!

3x a day! That's good, I know I'm going slower next wk. too, but the 1st wk. was a good jump-start. And, my energy is coming back. That feels awesome. I bet you could find some weights at a thrift store, for cheap. just a thought. Well, have a good evening, glad we're encouraging each other!

I could ride it more but the seat is so uncomfortable. I am sure it is because my butt is so big. I need to get a cushion or see about finding a wider seat!

Default new again

I am starting again to lose 90 lbs. I lost 20 last summer and gained it back. I have a lot of stress in my life,esp. husband, so that really affects me. i am doing high protein low carb plus exercise-which is something I didn't do before. i have health issues, so I need success. I am 54 with a 14 year old son. Any sugggestions of protein products or tips to boost energy would be very appreciated!
