Hi guys,

I'm new here and today is my first day :) I am soooo excited to get started. I actually went and got weighed and everything last week but my coach suggested I start today so I go through the worst days on the weekend.

I am coming off an AdvoCare 24 day challenge so I am hoping that the withdrawl isnt to bad, but I am ready for it.

I feel like I know all you already because I have been stalking the boards for a couple of weeks now. LOL! It really has been a GREAT help though, I really appreciate all your wisdom.

I would love to ask you all a question to get started, what is your favorite IP food?

Talk to you all soon!
Liz

Most people are going to throw out one of the restricteds as their favorite (actually mine is the Vanilla Crispy Square) but I'll give you one of the non-restricteds that I think is great and that's the Wildberry Yogurt Drink Mix. Tastes like a raspberry milkshake to me. I don't think that would bother me 3 times a day.

Welcome and congrats on getting started.

I love the chocolate pudding. I put it in the freezer to chill it and have it waiting for me after dinner.

Also love the broccoli cheese soup, especially since it's cold out, with my salad for lunch. Yum!

My absolute favorite is the RTD chocolate drink box. I freeze it so it's slushy and like having a chocolate milkshake. Non-restricted!

:welcome3:

That was a great suggestions from your coach. I worked on day's 1 & 2 and day 2 was really rough. Day's 3-4 were spent sleeping for the most part because I felt so horrible.

My favorite IP item is the chocolate soy puffs.

I am fairly new myself :)

My favorite restricted is the southwest cheese curls. I save it for an afternoon snack. My favorite non restricted is either the vanilla or chocolate RTD. They are both yummy.

All the best on your IP journey. The first couple days will be rough indeed but stick to it because it will be one of the best decisions you have ever made. I know its one of my best!

My favourite IP food is the Chocolate Drink... love that stuff!

Welcome & Good Luck!
My favorite food is the chocolate drink mix. I warm it up and it tastes like hot cocoa (actually better than most cocoas in my opinion)!

My favorite IP food is the Chocolate Soy Puffs. You get a lot in the package and I eat them slowly!

Good luck!

What did you think of the AdvoCare 24 day challenge???

I love the Peanut Butter Crunch Bar and Apple Cinnamon Puffs - Restricteds
I love the Chicken Noodle Soup (not the cream soup) - Non-Restricted

Good Luck with the first few days, just power through them! Jen

I love the wild berry yogurt blended with spinach. Strawberry wafer is my favorite restricted.

Jen, How do you prepare the chicken noodle soup? I've struggled with the foaminess of it.

Welcome! It's hard to give just one favorite IP food as there are so many that I like :)

My favoirte non-restricted is the Chicken a la King. I even have it for breakfast sometimes.
My favorite restricted is a 3 way tie between the Strawberry Wafer, Lemon Poppyseed Bar and the Cinnamon Puff things.
I also really like the chocolate and vanilla drinks and puddings (blended to make shakes), the creamy chicken soup, vanilla crispy squares and the cran granita bar.
The only things I haven't liked are the butterscotch pudding and the peach mango drink.
