12:00 IP and 2 cups vegi's
3:00 IP restrictive bar
6:00 Meat and 2 cups vegi's

Thanks so much!

5am- herb and cheese omelet, mushrooms, spinach

12pm- yogurt, soup, rtd, or bar

6-8pm 8oz protein, 2 cups veggies, salad

11-12pm cappuccino and cucumbers

I have done this every single day with the exception of 2 days...my coach always laughs at my journal. She says very boring, but its what works for me. We work 12-14hrs a day so thats why the weird schedule, but not weird for me, been doing it for 10+ years...

6-7 am: IP drink (not typically a breakfast person) and water
11:00 am: 1/2 restricted ( LOVE the dill zippers!!)
1:00 pm: always a salad with varied veggies ... and smoothie
3:00 pm: 1/2 restricted left from mid-morning
6:00 pm: always salad and my allotted meat protein
8-9 pm: IP drink or 1/2 additional restricted if agility night (recommended by coach because of extra exercise - agility nights with dogs runs 3 hrs of teaching/training ... but I'm sure this is TMI - lol)

Does anyone know of a diet drink similar to Crystal Light that we can use? I don't like the instant tea that is recommended :O( Water just gets a bit boring over the summer ... but I am drinking it!

I make decaf iced tea - Lipton has a cold brew kind you can make quickly - you can add Splenda if you like it sweet

I usually fill my water bottle 1/4 with Crystal Light Lemonade and the rest water. I have heard several people comment on "MIO", but have never tried it. If you want more response on this post on the daily thread, they are great with getting back to you. :)

My coach told me not to have much of the zero calorie sweetened drinks, because the sugar taste may create more sugar cravings. BUT.. I could imagine crystal light popsicles being pretty good.... anyone try that?

As long as the Crystal Light has NO ASPARTAME (this is what is believed to cause insulin spikes in the pancreas that can trigger cravings, and we want that pancreas to remain rested!). Some folks also find they have a sensitivity to Sucralose (aka, Splenda), but that's something you find out as you go along.

All sweetener should be used in moderation as they can create carb values as it accumulates in your day. Example: 1 Splenda packet is ~0.9g carbs/~4 calories. Stevia is generally a truly zero carb and a zero glycemic load (but it comes in many forms/packages, so watch the ingredients).

AVOID maltodextrin. It causes a glycemic load and insulin spike similar to white table sugar. Sugar alcohols are acceptable to some extent, some people are sensitive to other sugar alcohols so if you use them, monitor how your body is responding, it you feel a sugar high, or if you stall, perhaps you should avoid that one too. Usually you can tell if sugar alcohols aren't being absorbed if you have 'stomach problems'.

Again, try to use in moderation, but if they help you to stay on program and avoid sugars, many coaches would rather you do that than cheat with something sugary. My coach recommends limiting them to 6 or less/day.

7:30a - IP Drink (usually rtd vanilla+an extra 12 oz water+cinnamon)
11a - 1 C veggies
12:30p - 4 oz protein, 1 C veggies, salad
4:00p - IP restricted packet, 1C veggies
7:00p - 4 oz protein, 1 C veggies
8:30p - IP drink+20 oz water

For a Crystal Light-type drink, I use True Lemon or just have some lemon juice in my water. For me, the colder the water, the better!

I drink Kool-aid (you know the stuff we loved as kids). I make it with the unsweetend packet, 1/2 c Splenda and fill the pitcher (about 2 1/2 qt) with water. I started with the 1 c Splenda and put in a little less each time until I hit the magic 1/2 c. Fill the cup to the brim with ice.

Love it
