Hello,

I want to be 100% but I don't want to cheat myself out of things I could have and still be 100%. I know the basics follow the sheet don't cheat on eating tomatoes everyday get in your oils take your vitamins twice a day drink your water. But what else do you or don't you do to be 100%? Can you use Mio and Walden Farms? Do you put splenda in your coffee? Please share what people feel is 100% I want to try to join the club :carrot:

If your coach allows it then you are 100% OP. So if you use MIO, WF or crystal light....you are still 100% OP....anything that is allowed OP is still considered 100%. That is what I consider 100%

The Phase 1 sheet says what vegees and meats are allowed, and how often to have them. Anything else has to fit the 0-0-0 rule, 0 calories, 0 carbs, 0 sugar. So can use the WF products and Splenda. Some people find their sweet cravings increase though, so you might want to keep an eye on that. The Splenda does not generate an insulin reaction, but the brain does perceive it as sweet and tells you to want more...

It's always best to check with your coach though, just to be sure.

with amazing losses like the two of you are sporting I am happy to take your advise......my coach is really mellow pretty much anything goes with her as long as you are still losing anything but I am not that easy going my losses have gotten a little low so I want to bump it up a notch. Thanks for your impute I will watch for the sugar cravings those are the last thing I need!! :D

Can you use WF with each meal per day? Is there a limit to what you should be having? For example...yesterday I had:

Breakfast - IP Vanilla Shake with 1tbs of WF peanut spread
Lunch - IP Mush. Soup and salad with 1tbs of WF french dressing
Dinner - Big Mac in a bowl with 2tbs WF TI dressing (delish BTW!!!)
Snack - IP Choc pudding shake with 1tbs WF peanut spread and 1 tbs WF choc syrup

...am I overdoing it using WF with every meal?

My coach said I could have as much as I wanted. I could drink it right out of the bottle if I wanted. I did not feel comfortable with that even though it is 0/0/0. So I use it once or twice a day at most. What does your coach say?.

I have my first WI this week and that is a question I have for her. She said WF is fine in phase I but I forgot to ask how much per day. She also said to be careful of fruit herbal teas but I see that lots of people drink them on here so for now I have put all of my teas with fruit pieces or chocolate on the shelf even though they state 0 cal, 0 fat and 0 carb. Maybe I am being too paranoid?

My coach limits me to 2 tsp of WF products per day. I really wasnt using too much to begin with, maybe 2 tbsp per day and when I cut it down I lost more. Could be a coincidence, maybe not. All those extras add up though and can create more cravings.

My coach advised me to try and limit the '0/0/0 freebies' to 6 or less a day (Splenda, WF, miracle noodles, etc). Just FYI, the FDA allows anything with less than 5 calories to be labeled "0". Example: A packet of Splenda has 4 calories and ~1 carb, so just assume each serving of the freebies adds a carb to your intake. Depending on your bodies carb sensitivity and daily intake it can add up - I had a friend (not IPer) who would put TWELVE Splenda packets into ONE cup of coffee! An extreme example for sure!

Agreed...100% :D

I have a very strict coach but the rule for my clinic is you can have 4 packets of Splenda per day, and 1 TBSP of WF products = 1 splenda. (So...if I don't use any splenda packets I can have 4 TBSP of WF products...when I had rhubarb and put 4 Splenda in it, I couldn't have any WF that day...) It's working fine for me this way so I'm not messing with it!

Yikes!!! Good to know. I will limit my intake per day to be safe.

By the way...the 0/0/0 is 0 carbs/0 fat/0 sugar. :)

Since anything containing .999 carb can be labeled as 0 carb, "hidden" carbs can add up fast and do damage. WF products, gum, Mio, splenda, stevia, truvia...all have hidden carbs. These products are vital to the success of some folks and others can "take 'em or leave 'em". Splenda gives me cravings. It is what works for you. I think, if you can, you set yourself up for greater success by using the fewest number of chemicals. Just my 2 cents worth.

Crystal light is ok? I felt guilty having a glass at dinner thinking it's a no-no due to the aspartame!

I don't drink it everyday but I do have it occasionally as a treat. Aspartame affects some people more than others. My coach allows it some don't so use your judgement :)

Instead of crystal light you should be getting the 4C drink packets. They are made with Splenda 0/0/0. I live on them!

Does anyone know what the equivalence is between a packet of Splenda and Splenda in the bulk bag? Is it measure for measure the same? The Splenda in the bulk bag seems more 'granular' than the fine powder in the packet so didn't know if they would measure the same. For things like adding to rhubarb, etc, I'd like to use the bulk since using 3-4 packets at a time (vs say 1 Tbsp bulk) is more pricey. Haven't asked my coach yet, maybe she'll know.

According to the Splenda packaging:
1 packet = 2 tsp sugar
1 tsp granular = 1 tsp sugar

It's based on a serving size.

I would think the granular would have more carbs, might be double in fact since a serving size is = to 1 tsp sugar vs. 2 in the packet. Something has to create that "bulk".

12 Packets?! OMG!!! Does she like chewing her coffee?! Holy cr*p! lol I just had to get that out LOL


Ya know I read all these posts.. I must be super lame.. I dont crave sugar, or salts, i have no problem drinking my water, I barely use WF, I dont use CL or Mio's.. lol.. Every once in while when I do the mug cake thing i'll use the sweet drops or truvia but that's it. I wonder if I would enjoy the diet more if I did lol Today was the 1st day that I even bought Restricted foods. Besides the puffs or bars. But I'm gona try the chilli and the oatmeal lol.. Woo whoo! But I use alot of herbs and i'm pretty organic as it is.. I just have a problem eating all those chemicals that are in the WF's and other products. It just doesnt seem right. But dont get it twisted.. I love WF Asian and Sesame Ginger! LOL

BTW: Skin tip! (has nothing to do with this thread but I thought i'd throw it in) - Try to use bathing gels/soaps with out Sulfate!!! SLS is horrible for your skin and can really fight against the collegen building! There are more and more products coming out with out it. I changed a while ago and my skin feels amazing.. i barely ever use lotion and is visibaly noticeable (elasticitywise) I use Burts Bee's Rosemary and Mint! Yes.. it's organic! lol
Even as a hair stylist, my shampoo's are all SLS free! You will love and notice the difference!

I rarely use Splenda. For the past couple of years I've pretty much stuck to stevia as my sugar substitute of choice. I'm wondering if there's any particular reason why I don't hear much reference to the use of stevia here?

I was told by my coach to follow the serving size each time you eat WF. So I am very similar to you.

And I know how GREAT the Big Mac in a bowl is. My hubby, off the program now, still requests - almost every week.

Good luck and enjoy your WF!:carrot:

I don't use Stevia because it tastes really bitter to me. I've tried all the different permutations of it and I just can't tolerate the taste at all. So I use the granulated Splenda because it doesn't list dextrose as an ingredient like the packets do.

I guess I must have a less sensitive palate. :) Either that or I've just been using it so long that I've grown immune. :)

Eek! Just read all of this and realized I may be overdoing the Mio.... anyone know how much is probably pushing it?

The serving size on Mio is 1/2 tsp. Just assume everything that is labeled 0/0/0 has one carb per serving. If you have 8 servings of Mio (one for each glass of water), 2 of WF (one for each salad), and 2 pieces of gum (because your in ketosis), that's like eating another restricted without having the nutrition.
