Ideal Protein Diet - I'm shopping in US - what alternatives MUST I try?

12-23-2012, 10:42 PM
I'm here in US for 10 days so I'd appreciate any ideas on alternatives you love that I could get at typical retail stores. I'm in FLA then going home I75. I remember reading so many wonderful things but not really paying attn as they weren't in Canada. Any brands or stores I should try would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance for your time!

The most IP friendly stuff I've seen that is available at regular retail stores are Pure Protein products, EAS Carb AdvantEDGE, and Quest bars. Everything else that I use only comes from either online or the specialty nutrition store in my town.

Thanks! That's just what I needed -- jotting those names down now! :) I used to shop for cheaper alcohol if I came to the States... now I'm shopping "carb-free" instead of "duty-free"

the pure protein bars and EAS shakes can be found at Wal-Mart and Walgreens (higher)

Power Crunch bars are at WalMart & Trader Joes. I like the peanut butter fudge. Kind of like a reeses pb cup, but without as much pb!

Here's what they look like:

$1.18 each at WM
$1.29 each at trader Joes (only place I can get the pb fudge locally)

Enjoy your visit to the States!

Thanks for my growing shopping list. Ironically, I have no paper in hotel so am writing these great recipes on the inside of a Lucky Charms mini cereal box (my kids picked that 8 pack of boxes as their 'treat' -- not sure how hard marshmallows and gross cereal is a treat!) Give my the IP Cereal anyday!

GNC go lean RTD shakes are my go to shakes. GNC is in most malls. The Pure Protein is great make sure to get the smaller bars they're restricted to once a day. The GNC drinks are not restricted. Don't by the powder it would be like double restricted.
