I found the Athletic Protocol on a different thread on this forum. I know a lot of people have been asking about it so I decided to start a new thread in hopes that it is easier to find later :). MuayThaiGoddess originally posted it and she got it from her coach. The formatting is a copy and paste from the forum so the formatting is not the greatest, but you can format to you liking. Hope this helps!!

It would be great to hear about IPers experiences and results that that used the athletic protocol.

Can you also post this in the Ideal Protein - Phases (sticky) so taht we can always access it?

Thanks! I'm going to start working out now that I am close to my goal. It's helpful to know which packets to add and how long after working out to drink them.

Just to let you girls know, I talked to my doc today @ WI and told him I found the info for the Athletic Protocol and how it called for 6-7 packets. We dicussed my going to 5 packets on days I work out to see how it affects my losses. Right now I am at 4 packets and he wants to see if working out and adding more protein will help or hinder my losses. I am pretty much the guinea pig at the office.

I will definitely keep you posted on how this works out.

Thanks for posting this!

@jennydoodle, please do let us know! Also, one question, how many oz of protein do you have in the evening?

I'm going to do this too. I've done Phase 1 today with the addition of a hard boiled egg at breakfast and lunch. I'll have a post-workout shake, dinner, then my evening snack.

It's 5 miles today (uggh, in this grueling heat, will probably have to wait until a little later). Will see how I feel.

I usually workout between 5:30-6:30 and I have a RTD chocolate immediately after my workout and then I have dinner around 8:00. I eat my protein at lunch and a packet at dinner, so I guess I have around 36 in the evening between my post workout snack and dinner. Dinner is my last meal.

Wait, it is a little more b/c at dinner I usually make the pudding cakes and add (2) egg whites. So maybe it is closer to 40-42.

Jenny...can you speak more about the details of this? For example, if you are going to add two to four packets how much exercise are we doing? If I run for 40 minutes vs lifting weights for 30, or walking for 1.5 hours, or hiking for 3 hours...how should I adjust the extra protein and is there importance of when to take it?

In the beginning I used to mix TWO pudding packets together at night...it was REALLY satisfying, unitl my coach nearly fainted when I told her. She thought it was a real protein overload to do two at once. So there must be some appropriate "spacing" even on a workout day? Just scatter them evenly?

Thanks...this is really an important piece!!:carrot:

Thanks! I actually was wondering about this also, but what I meant to ask earlier was how many ounces of meat do you have? (in your case at lunch).

But yeah, I was initially also wondering about the total grams of protein, as it states in the protocol to have 1-2 g per lean pound (I'm assuming by that they mean muscle mass). Anyway, I was wondering how should I know what's my muscle mass... at my clinic all they have is an analog scale, they don't even take mesurements! Ok, sorry about the ranting, so really I just decided I probably shouldn't worry too much about such details since I'm not really an athlete. I'll add in the fourth packet (5th if necessary) and see how it works out.

Good luck!

This is my 4th day officially doing the Athletic protocol and I'm down 5 lbs. This is my second round on IP. I successfully finished and was on maintenance, but during maintenance there were a few celebrations I wanted to get caught up on (I got engaged during week 3 and couldn't celebrate) and maybe celebrated a little too much for 2 months and never really recovered properly. My own fault, I knew better, anyway, gained some of the weight back. I don't have much to lose, I'm just trying to get back to where I was, but also marathon training. The Athletic protocol is going pretty well, I'm not as hungry as I was before and I'm making it through the runs pretty well. This weekend is a long run (12 miles), we'll see how it goes.

Sorry I was MIA yesterday, but by the time I got home and jumped on, the website was under construction.

For the last 2 days, I have been doing 5 packets on workout days. I have been having 2 at breakfast, 6-8 oz. protein at lunch, 1 packet pre-work out, 1 packet post workout and 1 packet at dinner.

Doubling up at breakfast has been immensily satisfying! I was never really satisfied at breakfast was would be hungry for lunch by 11. Now I am feeling quite full all morning, and am loving that.

My workouts consist of Crossfit. It is part weights part cardio. I would liken it to a bootcamp or circuit training. It is an extremely intense workout. My doc actually does xfit as well, which is how I met him in the first place. From warm up to cool down, I am working out for roughly 1 hour. I would think that in order to go upwards of 4 packets, you should be doing something of at least medium intensity. If you are going to go for a 30 minute walk, I would THINK that you don't need to have any more than the 3 packets. If you are running, lifting weights, spinning etc... then you can follow the athletic protocol more closely. I am by no means an official on this, but just sharing based off of conversations with my doc.

I have heard (from the boards) that someone's coach mentioned about not spacing too evenly the packets. Something about if you keep feeding your body, it won't neccessarily burn the fat for energy because you keep giving it something to burn instead. I don't know if this is true or not, but that is why I doubled up at bfast so that I wasn't eating every 2 hours.

Waterbaby- is today for 4th day back OP or your 4th day on Athletic or are they one in the same? The reason I ask is because if it is your 4th day total back OP, the 5 pounds would be skewed b/c of the big drop in the first week. Just curious. I am starting day 3 of the Athletic Protocol but I am challenging myself to stay off of the scale, so I won't really know until Wed. how it worked ;)

It's my second week OP. My first week OP I was added 1 bar before my shorter runs (4-5 miles) and a bar before and a shake after my long run (11 miles). At WI #1, I was down 1 lb. This week I told myself to stay off the scale as well, but I was feeling pretty good with the running so i was curious :^: We'll see how it goes on Monday.

Jennydoodle, that sounds about right! Looks like I will be adding 2 packets for now until I phase off later when I get into heavier miles per week and longer runs and will need to add the complex carbs.

Let me know how your "experiment" goes.

Hello everyone, hope it's not overkill but I wanted to mention it again here since I haven't responded to all of you...I posted the actual IP Athlete Protocol I got from my coach but don't know how to make it a sticky.

If you are interested in getting it directly via email, please send me a private message with your email address and I will be happy to send it to you!

Thanks for posting the sheet. I can certainly say I feel MUCH better on the 5 packets than I did on the 4, without question. Even my workouts feel so much better.

Waterbaby- good to know it is your 2nd week. I am hoping for something closer to the 3-7# average this week! :)
