Ideal Protein Diet - Trying to have more than 1 oz. of milk...

I am trying to experiment with coffee recipes. Also, I am trying to do it without using one of my IP Packets so that the coffee is like a "4th", something extra during the day. I am doing fairly well but would really like to use more than 1 oz of milk! Any ideas or will this just have to end up being a "cheat" if I want to do it?

I looked into the nutrition facts facts of Soy Milk, here is what I found. I wonder if I used Soy milk if I could add more than 1 oz. Which of the soy milks below would you choose? The one with less calories or the one with less carbs and sugar?

1 oz - cal/carb/sugar:

Skim Milk 11.25/1.625/1.5
Organic Unsweetened Soy Milk 10/.5/.125
Light Soy Milk 7.5/.75/.5

I would think the one with the lowest carbs/sugar. I personaly am SO carb sensitive that I wouldn't dare do it tho. I do not even have the 1oz allowed. Sorry :(

Ugh I know that is what I need to hear I just didn't want to. But at least that helps me know which one to choose if I do. How would I know if I were very carb sensitive or not?

Would you believe if I told you I was from SD (Aberdeen) What are the chances right?

I haven't ever even had the 1oz allowed. I don't know if I'd dare.

I wouldn't do it either... if you whip it, my blender makes it nice and frothy so it is like there is more milk in it... try to follow the plan as much as possilbe. I always refer to the last line of the handout sheet, Any thing that isn't on this sheet and is not 0/0/0 then you cannot have... Milk has sugar and that could kick you out of ketosis.

That is a good idea! I want to try one blended.

I guess if I did the Light Soy Milk and tripled the allowed milk amount from 1 oz. to 3 oz. I would still be having the same amount of sugar as in 1 oz. of Skim Milk. It would add roughly .5 carb so the only thing would be calories, it would be adding 10 calories or so.

(Look at me sit here and try to justify 3 oz of Soy Milk...wow how my life has changed) :lol3:

Dont do it...you justify one thing..you will justify more things.. and im like the above poster. I would get triggered from drinking milk if i allowed that..truth be told..if your going to do anything..you would be better off taking full fat whipping cream in 1 oz and diluting it down with water...cause full fat whipping cream has less carbs...so at least you wont be kicking yourself out of ketosis..and you could stretch it farther if you did only 1 oz of full fat whipping cream diluted with water

I use Pure Protein vanilla RTD in my coffee. Just a little splash... it's like the vanilla RTD, but has a screw top. Extra protein. One bottle lasts me about a week...

Iv'e used IP RTD Vanilla in my coffee, it tastes good. Then put the rest in the fridge for the next few days.
My coach uses almond milk sweetened w/splenda or steevia it tastes good too.

Unsweetened almond milk -
35 calories for 1 cup
2.5 grams of fat
1 gram of carbs.
If you divided it by the oz it would be relatively small amounts of each.

Oh that would be perfect! Have you had it? I was just wondering how strong it the "almond" taste or does it taste similar to milk or soy milk at all?

I know I am carb sensitive because if my drinks/foods (I do alternative not IP foods) for the day are all 4 carbs or over each and I have approved veggies that are higher in carbs I will stall or slow down to almost nothing for the week. If I know I am going to eat veggies that are a little higher in carbs I will try to make sure my other IP choices are 2-3 carbs each. Same if I am going to have higher carb IP foods I will limit my veggies to cuccumbers and celery. I also do not have any restricted EVER. I do use the Health Smart oatmeal from Nashua once or twice a week but it only has 6 carbs so I don't think of it as a restricted realy. It helps me stay sane. Total pain in the @ss BUT I am glad I have it figured out. I also have to stay away from adding any splenda or walden farms syrups. I can however have their dressings. Wierd huh?

I have had success with unsweetened coconut milk. It doesn't have coconut flavor, and less than 1 carb in 8 ounces.

I'm sorry I meant the volume you get but I saw them at the store and I see they are little. I'm trying to get 4-5 oz of "milk" for my coffees. I am going to go ahead and try the Unsweetened almond Milk as it will only add up to .5 carb 0 sugar Yayyyyy!

I'm in maintenance - I use it just about every morning with whey protein powder. There's a slight almond flavor - but when it's mixed with something - not so much. I did not care for the vanilla flavored, prefer unsweetened - but I drink unsweetened coffee and tea.

During phase 1 I usually had chocolate drink mix with 1/2 my cup of coffee.

Iv'e tried the almond milk that my coach makes up , I like almond flavor it is subtle. This has a nice flavor in the coffee.
