I am BRAND new to this forum. If I am posting in the wrong location please please let me know. I am very interested in started Ideal Protein. However, I am currently unable to pay for all of their products. Has anyone been successful with locating alternatives that produce the same amounts? I am in need of following a strict plan, and I have personally watched this work with someone very important to me. However, she used the programs supplies. ANY help would be sooo appreciated!! Thanks!
