Ideal Protein Diet - Healthwise Nutrition Resources Products

12-30-2011, 03:50 PM
Does anyone have any experience or knowledge regarding the Healthwise Nutrition Resources Products? My center is now offering these products at $2.50 per product in addition to some of the IP products, which they sell for $4.00. (They sell by the packet, with the ability to return/exchange packets at any time). My coach said they were doing this to help make the program more affordable. I have used strictly IP products up to this point.

I tried the "Chocolate Drink" and microwaved it for one minute like I would the IP one to make hot chocolate. It has left a nasty aftertaste and given me a headache. I also have a really dry mouth, and have already downed 32 oz of water in the two hours since I drank it.

The best I can guess from the Healthwise website is that this is the ingredient list: Calcium Casseinate, Hydrolized Gelatin, Cocoa, Quic Milk, Natural and Artificial Flavor, Salt, Titanium Dioxide, Potassium Citrate, Sucralose, Acesulfame K.

I'll definitely be taking the other 6 chocolate drinks back.

Is anyone currently using or has recently tried these products?

Does anyone have any idea on what ingredients might have caused the headache and dry mouth?

Thanks in advanced for your help. I truly appreciate this community as an awesome source of information and support, even for lurkers.
