Day 2 of Phase 1 diet. Going ok and as I expected. Having a tough time getting all my veggies in. Found a salsa recipe that turned out pretty good so I had it on my salad along with Warden's bacon ranch.....not too shabby. Last night had a headache, nausea and lots of diarrhea, which is still a bit of an issue today. All in all I'm ready for my new lifestyle change and excited to see the results of my hard work. ;)

This forum is a great toolwith IP. The positive participation and feedback is what makes this a special place that helps everyone succeed!

If you do this with an open mind and become creative this "diet" really is delicious. There are several Recipe threads and Packet Hacks, it can be overwhelming at first - there is also a daily "What are you eating today" thread you may want to check out to see what other folks have on their menu and get ideas. It's a good way to dip your toes in, there is a LOT of information and support here.

Any questions - always post up in the Daily Chat thread as you will get the most eyes on it - and will not only get an answer, but someone else with the same question will learn too!

Welcome Newby. I am brand spanking new too. Day 4 on IP, Day 1 on forum and feeling pretty lost, but all the posts are very inspiring.

This is day 2 for me on IP. I was eating primal before this for a couple of months so the transition has not been so bad. Switched to IP because I wanted weight to come off faster. I have a lot to lose.
