good, you found it. yes, you follow this if you are doing some more iintense exercise during the week because your muscles NEED MORE protein and thats what this diet is all aboout, however if you have to back off from exercise make sure you cut it down- it also helps if you know how much lean muscle mass you have. people constantly think im about 25 pounds lighter than i am because i have so much more muscle for a female so my coach thinks i just need more protein daily- but its not good to guess... there is a fine balance but definately you need the AP if youre doing some athletic working out. for sure.

Can we have edamame? If so, how frequently?

According to my sheet, we can have soya beans, and when I googled it, they had a picture of edamame and listed this as a common form of soya. I've been sprinkling a little sea salt on and counting them in my two cups of veggies, what I'm not sure of is whether we count just the bean or the pod and bean when measuring, so I'm using the bean and pod and going a little over to split the difference. Not an exact science, but I love edamame!!!

Thank you, Babs! I have a recipe that includes edamame and mushrooms and soy sauce - want to give it a whirl soon. If it's any good I will share the recipe!

Hi everyone!

First, happy St-Patrick's day everyone!

I know I don't post often here but wanted to share my 1st back to phase 1 weigh in (after a week at Walt Disney World): -8 pounds!!

Started IP way back in Aug. 09 and lost almost 75 pounds with 2 major breaks at Christmas and Spring break. For the 1st one, I had reach my goal of 170 pounds and went through phases 2, 3 and 4. After the Holidays, decided to get rid of the remaining fat and started again with cheats on weekends... Gained some weight back on the week at Disney and now, back on track!

Good luck on your IP week!

Okay, so I used to like the chicken soup. For 2 days. I tried it today and almost threw up. Literally couldn't eat the whole packet. I hope it doesn't affect anything that I only ate 1/2 a packet for lunch. I did get all my veggies in at least. I am thinking I would enjoy just having the chocolate and vanilla drinks.

Trying these other funky flavors are not working out. I finally can eat the omelet without gagging. Oh well, I guess you just have to get used to different flavors, but I think the chicken soup will have to be off my list permanately.

Regarding the Edamame, I just did a little homework - a serving has 16 carbs in one cup. YIKES. And, according to the information I found, 8 grams of fat per serving. What the heck?! Am I googling the wrong thing or what?

I'm not sure what the word "soya" means on our allowed foods sheet. I know it comes from soybeans, but I'm sure we were told no edamame at our informational seminar as they are legumes and have the following nutrient values:

Edamame Calories, Shelled

Per 1/2 cup:

100-130 calories
9 g carbohydrate
8-11 g protein
3 g fat
4 g fiber

That would be 36 carbs in 2 cups.



Edamame Calories, Unshelled

Per 1/2 cup:

75 calories
7 g carbohydrate
6 g protein
2 g fat
3 g fiber

That would be 28 carbs in 2 cups.

So I've hit a little bit of a mental wall here in week 7. Just tired of the packets/food.

I'm on the road for work during the week so mixing it up really isn't an option.

Will make it until my Friday morning weigh-in but need to re-focus for sure....

Tricia- I know how hard it can be to go out to eat. I usually drink unsweetened ice tea, even when I am not on this plan. Is there such a thing as soda sweetened with Splenda? I did find some Arizona brand green tea that has splenda and I drink it iced.

What do you all do to prep for your week food wise? I try to have all my lettuce cleaned and in large ziploks, and then have a ziplock with cut up veggies to add to my salad. Otherwise it takes so long to get a meal up and going. I have roasted veggies with sea salt and olive oil, and Mrs. Dash the leftovers work great to put on top of my salad.
