D: chicken w 2 c veggies

S: Quest Bar and EAS shake w/ coffee

Hey, SarahBell -

For eggs to = a packet serving, you need one whole egg and three egg whites. Don't short-change yourself on getting the full amount you need to keep you satisfied and OP!! :D (also cut your veggies later in the day by a half cup or so)

You doing 4 packets or are you splitting your EAS shake? (Just checking so we all lose TOGETHER!!)

B- RTD chocolate shake


Before workout snack- "Cinnamon Roll" shake.. I use a pack of IP butterscotch pudding, 3oz water, ice cubes, 1/2tsp butter spuds (5 calories, 1carb), 1/2 scoop of skinny whey vanilla protein powder (one scoop is 100 calories, no fat, 35mg sodium, 3g total carbs, 1g sugar, 2g dietary fiber, 22g protein), and a dash of cinnamon.. THIS IS SOOOOOOO good!!

Havent hit lunch yet, but ill probably have zuccini noodles, with unjurys proteind cheese sauce.

These are ok for IP, correct?

My coach told me if im working out to add an extra packet or more protein?

Yes, you do need to add an extra unrestricted packet when working out... However, by using BOTH the IP packet and half a serving of the whey powder, you are adding 50 additional calories, 11 additional grams of protein and a carb or two OVER the fourth packet.

Well, it'll be WAY cheaper this summer when I harvest cukes from my garden! I just wanted to try it out and since I added extra garlic and some jalapeños (picked peppers!) my pickles have a great bite! Nice & crunchy

I'll probably buy more Bubbies til I find reasonably priced cukes (and the grocery puts that wax on them). The ones I used were picking cukes from Whole Wallet

Crispy Cereal makes AMAZING pancakes! Crush it up (I use a rolling pin while it is in the package). Add an egg white, touch of baking powder and water to thin until it is like batter. Cook on a low-medium flame (slower and lower is better for this batter).

Top with WF Maple or Blueberry syrup and ENJOY!!! :p

Lots of people make pancake with the crispy cereal. I never have but lots of folks rave about them.

When are you having the other half of your Quest bar? It looks like you only have 2.5 packets today.

Just so newcomers know, Scotch eggs are usually breaded & deep fried. Right on the P1 sheet is says "no frying or breading permitted". They sure are good, tho. Save them for after P1. I used to make them at home so I could control carbs (when I was on Atkins and wasn't worried about fat).

As far as fat goes, on days I go out for dinner, I typically skip my restricted, to "make up" for any hidden fat/carbs in the food. So I just have 3 unrestricted on those days.

Thanks for the suggestions - maybe I'll buy one more packet of the crispy cereal to make a pancake before I give up on it completely.

lisa: the other half of my quest bar got eaten last night. I've been under the weather and couldn't finish it -- it was actually my entire evening meal. I'll be over today, as the 1/2 bar wasn't enough to get me through the afternoon, so I ate the choco soy puffs I had stashed in my purse. Yesterday was *really* light though (670 calories), so I guess it will be balanced by today.

The other thing that works for me is to use ice cold water when making the cereal and add a little bit of sugar free syrup (white chocolate for me). It makes it somewhat better, although I still prefer the cereal as a pancake.

Pishposh: I hope your experience with Red Robin is better than mine... flabby bacon, a tiny bit of guacamole, some mayo, and a tough dried out patty in my lettuce wrap - my first time there... and probably my last :(
I had a salad on the side since I was going for the maintenance meal of lower carb/higher fat. We went with friends who aren't very food adventurous so we said OK just for their company.
Maybe your RR is better than ours...

Wow, Red Robin is one of my FAVORITE restaurants, especially on IP with the protein style burgers! I really love their burger meat flavor (I always get mine medium rare as I like my burgers that way and have not had a dry one ever.) I think you should have complained... I bet you would have gotten results.

I have also liked the fact they let me get unlimited steamed broccoli as my side (they said since fries are unlimited and I am subbing broc for my fries, I can get unlimited!) This allows me to get my 2 cups veg easily!!

Sorry your experience was underwhelming!

I loved Red Robin before IP, and my boyfriend has to eat gluten free so I knew they were accommodating with restricted diets. I got the lettuce wrapped burger, and I will say my burger was pretty crispy. I've never had that issue before, unless it was masked by cheese, bread and mayo and I didn't notice. I did order it medium well, so I guess I'll go down to medium next time.

All of the Red Robins around here are sort of reinventing themselves to be more "gourmet" I guess and this includes setting up a long line of tables that are seriously RIGHT NEXT to each other. It's hard to not feel like you're a part of the next table's conversation. Also, everyone stares at each others food when it comes out and I felt a little weird with both of our lettuce burgers with broccoli, while everyone else had towering onion rings and what not. That's my only gripe really though, haha.

Hope everyone had a great OP Easter!

Me too! There's a little lebanese place across the street from me, and since starting IP i've swapped from their giant shawarma platters to the salads. I love them! I get them with chicken, lettuce, a couple tomato slices, pickled turnip, pickles, and a ton of hot sauce.

Egg Beaters has a TON of stuff in it you don't want to be eating!!!

MANY of us eat one whole egg and three egg whites as a replacement for the IP omelette. It is the easiest one to replace with real food! I get a container of pure egg whites (none of those unpronounceable ingredients in it) and LOVE my eggs in the morning!

Thank you! My grocery store was out of the cartons of egg whites, so I grabbed this stuff instead. The ingredients are egg whites, beta carotene for color, spices including garlic, onion, and pepper, salt, and some added vitamin supplements. Truthfully, it didn't seem too bad, as far as ingredient lists go. I don't know what is in brand name Egg Beaters, since this was a generic/house brand. Maybe the brand name product has more unpronounceable ingredients?

But if straight-up egg whites & eggs are the way to go, I'll take your word for it. You all have so much more experience than I do! Thanks again! :)

Maybe the brand name product has more unpronounceable ingredients?

But if straight-up egg whites & eggs are the way to go, I'll take your word for it. You all have so much more experience than I do! Thanks again! :)

That is a much better list than actual Egg Beaters brand! But I would still rather just have the w hole egg and three whites anyway! I also sometimes add a small amount of veggies from my lunch portion (1/4 to 1/3 cup) usually mushroom, pepper, spinach. Occasionally I top with a spoon or two of salsa (no sugar added) and almost always a few drops of Chipotle Tobasco. Just like a little variety.

Mainemum... Just noticed you are using three packets... At weights over 200 you are allowed additional packets. I seem to recall you either don't have a coach, or you have a friend coaching you from a distance. Or am I confused?

Anyway, you may want to think about the additional (it might be two additional for you) as you need a bit if extra protein and calories until you drop down more. Not all people used the additional, but most who did felt better. When you drop down, you omit the extra.

I will either find the breakdown for you or Lisa will jump in... She always has it handy!

Thanks! You remembered correctly. My friend gave me some program materials, but isn't officially coaching me through her work. She will let me buy any IP products that I want to use until I come up with some alternatives. Her clinic charges a huge sign-up fee, and a weigh in fee (you prepay for 6 months of weigh ins at your initial sign-up) and since I only plan to use "real" IP foods for a few weeks, it didn't make sense to flush that fee down the drain. I can use that $$$ for new clothes! :D

She said that at my current weight, I can use up to 5 packets right now, but that the extra two are optional. I've been using only 3 per day since day 3, and doing ok hunger-wise. I'm hesitant to add more of the drink packets into the menu, because they seem to be higher carb than some other unrestricteds... I've always been very carb sensitive, and I'm worried about knocking myself out of ketosis.

She also told me that I could add a hardboiled egg or 2 oz cooked chicken breast to my lunch (along with 3 packets daily), if I am really hungry mid- afternoon, instead of doing 4 packets... meaning:

B: IP or alternative
L: lettuce, 2 c veg, 1 egg or 2 oz chicken
S (3pm): IP or alternative
D: lettuce, evening protein per program materials, 2 c veg
S (9pm): IP product

This would keep me from having to add too many extra carbs, but would add protein and space things out nicely for very hungry days.

Am I going to slow my loss by only using 3 IP/alternatives? :?: I know that 3 are manditory, but I was under the impression that the others were only needed if I couldn't get by on 3? Thanks for your help!

mainemum: Not saying you should add them, but the jelly and some of the fruitier drink mixes are lower carb and work well for a 4th packet if you need it.

Adding protein to your lunch works too if you need it. Pay attention to how your body feels - do you have enough energy, are you losing well, sleeping well, etc? I'm with JLUS, depends on how you're doing but don't be afraid to use an extra packet (or two) if needed.

I'm putting together a cart at Nashua Nutrition, and I am looking at some of the alternative fruit drinks from Proti-Thin. They look like they would work as a replacement for the IP fruity drink packets. I'm trying to switch to alternatives as soon as I can.

So far I'm losing weight, I'm sleeping like normal (I'm a SAHM and I homeschool, so I sleep like a rock every night :dizzy:), and I have not had any problems with energy. I'm on my feet from 5am to 10pm, and if anything I think I have had more energy since starting IP. We will see how the weeks progress. It is good to know that I have extra packets to fall back on if I need them.


Thanks for your support!

Blondi - it should be 2 tsp oil per day is my understanding (someone please correct me if I'm wrong).

The spring salad mix counts as veggies so you're getting 2 cups too many veggies - only lettuce (iceberg, romaine, butter, etc.) is a "free" food.

Rhubarb counts as a veggies, it just tastes like a fruit! I love rhubarb.

You'll get it all figured out. Takes a little practice!

Hi Ruthann, hmmm, I hope I am not having too much.

I lie the idea of the rhubarb as a vegetable. I wasn't sure about the oil. On the list it says 1-2 tsp at lunch and then again the same at dinner. I am working very hard at it and want to make sure I am doing it correctly so thanks for the input.

This has come up before on the spring mix - it usually has arugula, radicchio, etc. in it. All of those are listed as "select" veggies on the Phase 1 sheet so should be counted.

Tough morning. My in-laws were leaving from their stay, getting kiddos to school and gymnastics. I had my IP omelet around 10:45am. My biggest struggle with this diet is my crazy, on-the-go life.

JLUS...

Tough morning. My in-laws were leaving from their stay, getting kiddos to school and gymnastics. I had my IP omelet around 10:45am. My biggest struggle with this diet is my crazy, on-the-go life. It was a real eye opener last week to see how hard it was for me to stay OP on my really busy days (though I'm proud to say I didn't cheat). No wonder, grabbing a burger became habit!

I know it's really hard when on the run... Just so important you get everything in, and especially to get Bfast in first thing ( some say w/in a half hour of rising... I never get it in that fast!)

Good to have a backup plan for those days... RTD in the fridge to grab n go, a bar or chips... Baggie of zucchini muffins in the freezer.

You will get good at it by just thinking of a couple things to have on hand at all times.

KUDOS for staying OP in your eating selections!

And might as well stash some packets in the car, purse, sports bag, etc so if needed you can just get a bottle of water and add a packet (the fruity ones work best for this, though a small funnel really helps if you have yo add to the bottle!!)

Yes, thanks for the reminders and tips. I am looking forward to trading in many of my NR packets for easier ones at this weeks weigh-in. I love the mango-peach drink as a very quick way to get in a packet, especially when I'm not hungry. I have too many soups right now, and they never sound good to me. I have the RTD cappuccinos also...those are my normal breakfast. Not sure if I'll try a different kind this week instead....

A lot of people use the soups to make a flatbread (add egg white and water to get a batter to spread in a non stick pan over medium heat - I don't know exact recipe, but close to that).

This works well with the Broccoli Cheddar soup packet - it's on someone's pinterest. If you google "IP Broccoli cheddar bread" it will come up. I've made it and it's a very foldable chewy sort of tortilla that works good if you want to stuff it with things and because of the cheddar, it works well as a Mexi style meal component.

Thanks for checking in and keeping me honest. :) For lunch I had a veggie salad with spring mix, peppers, cucumbers and broccoli (2 cups) and 4 oz of roast beef. For dinner I had a crispy pancake with 2 egg whites, two scrambled eggs and turnip hashbrowns (2 cups).

I usually post my planned menu for the day when I get to work in the morning, but today was a bit vague since I had my WI right before work when I bought my packets and I had to improvise a bit for lunch. Thankfully I have a farmers market right near me that has a lot of good salad options.

Best plans fall apart. I got stuck at an appointment, and missed lunch! Thankfully, I had packed an extra packet in my purse. It really helped me get through my extra four hour wait! Before I got on the interstate, I went straight to the grocery store for a few supplies. I grabbed some peeled hardboiled eggs, kosher dill pickles, and two more quarts of water. I was afraid that if I didn't, I wouldn't make it home (1hr drive) without hitting a fast food spot. Thank goodness for Trader Joes!

Haha! Yep, I replaced it as soon as I got home. Couldn't risk not having it on hand if this happens again!



I also talked to my doctor about trying Quest bars. I love that they are soy free, but I am also allergic to almonds. All Quest bars contain almond meal. Thankfully, my reaction to almonds is not life threatening - just a rash and some uncomfortable tummy troubles. I would like to be able to stash a few bars in my purse, but I cannot find any that are both soy & legume free and tree nut free. My allergist suggested that I eat half of a bar, wait two days, and then eat the other half, and see how my system handles it. When we last checked, I was able to eat a small handfulI (8-9) and have only a minor reaction. I hope it turns out ok - I would love to have another alternative product!

Good luck with the move - that's always stressful! The last time we moved I took a large plastic container, marked it "do not lose or pack - box goes in car" and put all the essential stuff I thought might get packed where I couldn't find it. Stuff like the coffee maker, coffee, cups, can opener, vitamins. Then made sure it went in the car with me. I suspect you will do the same with all your IP stuff - can you imagine getting to the new place and tearing through boxes trying to find it???

I'm still trying everything for the first time - yesterday I had leek soup in my #'d packets from my coach, so I think it would be good to switch it up (not even sure if I have another leek soup in there??)

Congrats on Day #5!

For the vanilla drink - lots of people heat it up and add coffee or blend it with ice for a cold drink. Just remember - do NOT add hot water and try to shake it, you'll have a mess.

I only see 2 packets in your day - are you getting in your third packet?

Take a look at this thread http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/ideal-protein-diet/212175-fun-ideal-protein-packets.html - tons of great ideas in there.

Good luck with the move - that's always stressful! The last time we moved I took a large plastic container, marked it "do not lose or pack - box goes in car" and put all the essential stuff I thought might get packed where I couldn't find it. Stuff like the coffee maker, coffee, cups, can opener, vitamins. Then made sure it went in the car with me. I suspect you will do the same with all your IP stuff - can you imagine getting to the new place and tearing through boxes trying to find it???

Thanks so much - it will take us a week because my DH is on kidney dialysis and we have to stop for at least one treatment along the way. Also we have a pre-teen and dog!! But it will be fun. I am making sure to label everything very carefully and even color coding a few plastic bins!!

You could try phoning the restaurant ahead of time to see what there is, maybe some roasted veggies or a salad plate? Just so you don't watch everybody eating and they don't wonder what's up with your empty plate. lol Those of us with allergies or celiac disease get used to phoning the restaurants ahead and finding out/suggesting alternatives ;) It just takes a bit of getting used to.

Remember, what you are doing is important for your health and you should be able to take a bit of control over that without others feeling resentful (as long as your requests are reasonable). Maybe too late if you are already at work, but worth a try and definitely for next time. Just eat your protein when you get home if you need to.:chef:

The restaurant is Earls, actually, so they post their nutritional information online, so I know what I can and can't have. But the issue is the format of the outing: usually a bunch of appetizers are preselected, and those are the options. If chicken wings are ordered, I might eat one of those to appease those around me. I could also potentially replace my restricted for the day with one taco (200 cals, 9 net carbs, 15 protein -- similar to my strawberry wafers yesterday). I'll have to see what the options are and go from there.

Not sure which Quest bar you are having... there are a couple that are right on the border of restricted, but many IPers count them as restricted, and most of them clearly are. And the Chocolate Soy Puffs are restricted.

I talked to my coach about this one. We're treating them as unrestricted, for now, because my losses are fine, and I couldn't make the soups work. I don't really get breaks during the day (lunch included), but I can just throw a Quest bar into my white coat pocket and chow down in the elevator between consults. I usually don't get to my vegetables until later in the day (I ate the broccoli and cauliflower above at 5pm). If my losses slow, we will back off of them. But we figured with how active I am at work, I'm probably making up those extra 70-90 calories pretty easily. My biggest issue was getting ravenous without a proper lunch, and nearly giving into donuts and other crap on the wards. This compromise seems to be working.

I only see two packets listed... am I missing something? Even if you are splitting your protein between lunch and dinner, you need to be eating three IP packets daily.

Ideal Protein says "unlimited lettuce", but my coach says at least four cups of romaine lettuce daily to prevent constipation. It is an important source of nutrients, and it helps with hunger. That being said, she also told me that missing a day occasionally will not mess things up. Some days I am too busy for salad (hard to eat while driving) and some days I am not that hungry. Other days, like yesterday, I eat a huge salad at lunch and none at dinner. I get my four cups most days, but not necessarily split into two servings.

Also, on my Phase 1 sheet, the spinach counts as a vegetable, not a lettuce. I guess your coaches have their own "house rules" about this. I'd go by what they are telling you, and see how your body responds.

The IP daily video blog do say that if spinach is raw it doesn't have to be counted. They said the same about field greens. But then they do say if you have trouble getting in all your veggies to eat spinach and kale. Even IP can't seem to stay clear on this subject. They always come back to "see how your body handles it". I don't want to waste a week finding out!

My papers are the same as what you can get in the first post of the daily thread, or the FAQ sticky. I compared them right away, because (though I trust my friend/coach who started my program), I know that some centers are really slow about switching over to new sheets when there are changes. I wanted to be sure that her center was using the newest stuff!

I have heard that some people receive sheets with hand written addendums that do not match current protocol. I guess it is possible that coaches are making changes to the papers, but I doubt it is approved by Ideal Protein.

Yeah, I think it's tough for the coaches. The IP higher-ups have provided them with little guidance for dealing with special circumstances, and the coaches aren't scientists or dieticians -- they're laypeople trying to do the best they can for their clients.

I'm a resident physician, and have rotations with call coming up. The diet, as it stands, is simply not enough to keep me going for 28-30 hours straight (yes, my life sucks). My coach and I haven't decided on a plan of attack yet, but it will either be an extra unrestricted packet for more protein, or possibly an increase in fat (like in the form of PB on celery, not a greasy burger or anything).

I think, in your situation, the most important thing will be to stay hydrated. Don't let that water bottle leave your side! You might confuse dehydration with hunger. If you need it, having an extra packet handy is probably good idea. As well, safe vegetables like cucumber & celery aren't going to give you much of an energy boost, but they can be lifesavers if you're staring temptation in the face and just want to munch!

It does seem inexplicable how spinach/field greens are select veggies on the sheet (not qualifying raw or cooked) and not only coaches, but IP itself can contradict that. Why list it as select if it is to be treated as a variable?

As well, safe vegetables like cucumber & celery aren't going to give you much of an energy boost, but they can be lifesavers if you're staring temptation in the face and just want to munch!

Thanks again! Good for you for taking control of your health in the most chaotic times. My nutrition went down the tubes after graduate school where I was on call for suicide/hospitalization screenings....not enough rest, too much stress = emotional eating!

I am curious how I will do....my energy feels lower this week than previously on IP.

Re lettuce: I a couple cups of romaine in a ziploc bag & eat like chips in the afternoon. A lot of my job is travel and it works for me!

That's brilliant! I used to do that with baby spinach (odd pregnancy craving) but I never thought to do it with romaine. Thanks for the tip!

Yesterday, Phase 1 with alts

B: egg + whites to replace IP omelet, 1 C green bell peppers, tea with milk and stevia
L: salad with romaine, 1 C spinach, 1 C red bell peppers, acv & oil dressing. I made an experimental flat bread with New Hope Mills pancake mix, herbs, and an egg white, and stuffed some of the salad into the flatbread for a "sandwich". Recipe needs tweaking, but it was pretty good overall.
S: Premier Protein vanilla rtd mixed with cold coffee.
D: huge salad of romaine and iceberg lettuce, with spicy shredded chicken and 1 C of pico de gallo on top. (There goes my tomatoes for the week, lol!)

Yeah, I think it's tough for the coaches. The IP higher-ups have provided them with little guidance for dealing with special circumstances, and the coaches aren't scientists or dieticians -- they're laypeople trying to do the best they can for their clients.

I'm a resident physician, and have rotations with call coming up. The diet, as it stands, is simply not enough to keep me going for 28-30 hours straight (yes, my life sucks). My coach and I haven't decided on a plan of attack yet, but it will either be an extra unrestricted packet for more protein, or possibly an increase in fat (like in the form of PB on celery, not a greasy burger or anything).

I think, in your situation, the most important thing will be to stay hydrated. Don't let that water bottle leave your side! You might confuse dehydration with hunger. If you need it, having an extra packet handy is probably good idea. As well, safe vegetables like cucumber & celery aren't going to give you much of an energy boost, but they can be lifesavers if you're staring temptation in the face and just want to munch!

WOW 28-30 hours straight. I am tired just hearing that! :dizzy:

Not the same situation but the same idea. When I started IP at 470 my coach looked at me and smiled and said I could do up to 7 packets a day. She didn't get that out of a book, she winged it and you know what, I am damn glad she did because I would not have stuck with the diet and had success with three packets a day!

And you're doing amazingly! Congrats on your success so far -- especially with the extra hurdle of HCL (saw you mention it in another thread). I've met many people with it as a result of my work, so I have to give you extra kudos :hug:

For bfast I had the cappucino drink, plus a cup of joe with skim milk and 4 drops of stevia. For the first time at lunch today I tried the chicken soup and OMG it's so GOOD!!
Dinner I think we'll have leftovers - we grilled out and had a ton of meat last night. I don't think I want lettuce because I'm so full from lunch.
Oh and I had some grilled peppers and grilled zucchini in my chicken soup.
I didn't realize it was so creamy! YUM!

Due to a dental procedure, I did not feel like eating (imagine that) but decided to try something I had read on here to get in all that I was supposed to. I took a dark chocolate pudding package, one envelope of Starbucks VIA coffee and 2 cups of frozen greens, added water and blended. The frozen greens turned it into the most delicious mocha shake that I could eat with a spoon and the coffee flavor totally disguised the flavor of the greens. Yummy!

What brand of ham are you using? I can't seem to find any that is fat free. I have a major ham-and-eggs craving!



(I was thinking about buying a ham slice, and removing the visible fat, but they seem to be so high in sugar/carbs. Must be whatever "basting solution" they put in the package with the ham.)

The ham I use is Boar's Head Smoked Virginia Ham. It's the closest I could find to fat free. This is the breakdown for 2oz (I use less, but still):
60 cal
1g fat
2 carbs
9g protein.
