It's not that going in and out of ketosis is dangerous, it's more that when you're not in ketosis you are basically on a starvation diet because your body is only getting about 5-600 calories a day. Every time you cheat and go out of ketosis it takes approx 3 days to get back in and you are just starving yourself until your body goes into a state where it can get the remaining calories it needs from your stored fat....

I have been looking and can't find the recipes that pertain to IP. Can anyone point me in the right direction. Thanks
Hi, WyoSun, Click on "User CP" up at the top left of the screen. Click on the "User Control Panel" down arrow on the middle right of your screen. Arrow down and click on "Other Reduced Carb Diets." There's all kinds of IP stuff to click on, including the recipes.

Thanks, Jordanna, that makes sense.

Anyone know where to buy the ready made chocolate drink other than newlifestylediet.com? They have the vanilla in stock now, but I don't want to pay shipping for vanilla now and then for chocolate later.

But if I wait for the chocolate to come in, the vanilla might be gone. What a conundrum.

Thanks,

I was wondering what everyone's take on alcohol was? I know that vodka and gin(i think) have 0 sugar and 0 carbs. I know for myself that it takes quite a big cheat to throw me out of ketosis and even when I do get out of ketosis it only take 24hrs to go back in.

As far as the ketostix go my coach told me that the lighter the better. She said that you do not want to be too heavy into ketosis because that means your are probably burning muscle too.

I posted a question last week about birth control and still never really got a solid answer from anyone! I just started birth control about 3 weeks ago and I've been on IP for 10 weeks now...should I be worried about the BC's effectiveness?

Everyone seems like they are doing awesome About cheating....don't worry about it. Make it yours...(just don't go crazy) Most of us are on this diet for a bit of time and i truly believe that you have got to cheat sometimes!! Plus....my coach said that she cheated once a week and still lost 40lbs in 10 weeks. (either she's lying or she's superwoman idk)

Thanks Jordanna.. that makes sense now. I have felt a little off/tired today. I bet my carb overload/ going out of ketosis/ starvation mode has something to do with it!

Yes, I was wondering this too....where is the absolute best source to get these from? Have you tried the Mocha flavor, I have not. Shipping is not cheap but it is sort of a heavy item. I spent some time searching UHT drinks/shakes manufactured in Canada this past weekend to see if I could figure out who actually makes these particular shakes. UHT, as I understand it, means ultra high temperature and is a processing term. I am convinced these are not made by IP or Newlifestyle, but rather a third entity (the packaging is generic looking to me w/o logo). Unfortunately I did not have any luck in finding the manufacturer but maybe someone out there knows who it is. The next best thing would be finding the most similar shakes to these that don't have aspertame in them, if anyone knows this off hand, please advise. If not, I could look to see what people may have written on the alternate IP thread. I have heard of the EAS shakes but don't know what's in them or what the "sweetener" is or comparisons are.

the EAS shakes are sugar free (sweetened with sucralose) and sometimes have less carbs and 2g more protein than the IP shakes - they are a great substitute!

Emichelle, who is your IP coach? My aunt is my long-distance coach and she is in Portland, OR - her name is Jan Kelley.

I'll be moving back to lovely Portland, OR this June after finishing grad school - so excited!

My "coach" gave me a few of the UHT ready to drink chocolate a few weeks ago to sample (think drug dealer) and I absolutely loved them. For me, they are indistinguishable from chocolate milk.

After hearing great things about the EAS Advantage shakes, I bought a case at Sam's Club last week and have been working on those. In my opinion they are more like chocolate water. Not horrible, but definitely nothing close to the UHT ones.

I just wish this stuff was easier to come by.

I think it's great that you actually had blood tests to check your levels out for sure. (I just got back the results of my blood tests, and my doctor said they "couldn't be better").
I got my blood test results today and my kidneys are functioning normally. My potassium is also in the normal range also. I am going to take the potassium supplement twice a day now to help with the fatigue. My doctor said as long as the kidneys are functioning normally, taking 2 of the potassium supplements will not harm me. I have been taking water pills for 2 days for the edema, it seems better today, still a little swelling but not as bad. The scale has dropped 5 lbs since Monday. I will be excited to see what my next weigh in will be. I hope the fluid stays off!
