Get right back on the wagon, don't wait. What is done is done can't change that. Don't beat yourself up, pick yourself up instead

Hi
I want to try this program but I don't want to join a diet center. In the past when I was on slim 4 life I ordered protein products online. How many grams of protein are in the Ideal Protein diet packets?
I just was wondering if I could do the diet without joining any diet program?
Any suggestions or input would be appreciated.
Thanks

That is exactly what I was looking for. Did you join a diet program to do the Ideal Protein Diet or are you doing it by yourself?

Thanks

Does anyone here NOT take the vitamins & supplements they suggest that you buy from them? Also, if you're NOT taking them are you still losing as much weight as someone that IS taking them?

After I finished my first month of the supplements I didn't buy them from IP again. I just use the Centrum for woman multi vitiam, Omega 3, 6,9 from Sam's, potassium from walmart and the cal/mag from walmart. My weight losses have not changed. The supplements are to get the nutrition we don't get from out diet, not to help you lose the weight.

I use the same supplements as Wuv. They are very inexpensive and necessary. You also need to have sea salt! I've read a lot of posts of people getting really bad headaches. I did on day two and just ended up going to bed. I hadn't heard about licking salt of you palm and having a glass of water yet.

Thanks for getting back to me. Sorry to bother you, but I was just wondering if you could possibly tell me exactly what yours are? I need to pick some up and I've looked all over the threads, but I'm getting pretty overwhelmed with all the "difference" in what people are taking

Bumping so this thread is not buried. Lots of useful data sheets in here with phases and alternative phases and nutritional info.

Default Fatigue!

Hi all,

I am on my second week of IP; started last Monday and I have already lost 6 pounds. Last week I felt fine most of the week, but this week (yesterday and today even more so) I am feeling very tired and lethargic

My nutritionist warned me that the first 1-2 weeks you may feel tired and to refrain from working out, but since I felt so little fatigue last week, I assumed I'd feel even better this week - that's not the case.

I'm not having any problem with hunger or cravings; I enjoy the food and find the program very easy to follow, but this is the only niggling thing that is bothering me - my low energy levels.

Has anyone else experienced this? Can you offer some suggestions?

Add some salt to your day, put 1/2tsp of sea salt and lick it off the palm of your hand then drink water. Your BP maybe low or your electorlytes

I never did get any kind of energy surge, more of just feeling better a bit at a time as more weight comes off.

First, do they check your blood pressure? Mine dropped pretty low pretty quick. Suggestions for this are be sure you are getting in the 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt per day(I measure it) or even add caffeine (the salt helps me).

Next, are you eating any restricted IP packets? Having one per day also helped. If your clinic is having you hold off on that, be sure to have some of the restricted vegetables twice a week.

Then, the regular non-diet related stuff: are you coming down with something? close to TOM? allergies? weather?

My theory is that some of us have some really bad stuff in our fat and it affects us differently. Also, some of us have really messed up our body systems, so starting to use fat for fuel is confusing (and a bit exhausting) to our bodies, kind of like an old car that you have to start up in just a certain way before it will turn on and run smoothly. It really does get better and the need for so much sleep does let up.

Certainly if you continue to feel badly for a week or two straight, consider visiting your doctor.

Everything info says is really good, I think, especially the bit about blood pressure. I'd just add that not getting enough water can make you tired and stop flushing stuff out of your system. Probably related.

Default Updated Phase 1 sheet

It was brought to my attention by PeggyG that the Phaase 1 sheet is the old sheet, this one is dated 2011 So I am assuming I have the most current one. Someone please correct me if I am wrong
