I am really hoping that everything averages out. I am also begining to think that I can't do this. I seem to cheat once a week and it always always involves alcohol. I sometimes think I will not loose anymore but then I look at everyone else who has been on this diet longer than me and they have managed to do it so unless I am a genetic freak then it must happen to me too. bottom line though; i really think things will average out at the end, wherever the end is.

congratulations on the weight loss. Did you every cheat? I am very down on myself right now cause I have. You are seeing great results so wanted to know if you during this 9 weeks ever gave into temptation.

And last question for today : I was at Loblaws (a grocery in Quebec, I don't know if you have it in the US) and I was where the powder for protein shake are.. I was looking to the nutritionnal information of Isoweight (1 carbs, 24 protein, 1 fat for a shake) and I was wondering if I could replace my IP premade shake by that?
The ketosticks are easy to use. There should be directions on the package but, you use them when you are on the toilet. You only need to check once in awhile for peace of mind.

My coach never said how many carbs to count either. I have just watched to find what works for me. I have heard others say anywhere between 25 net carbs to 40 carbs.

I think that you could use the isoweight as a replacement if it doesn't contain maltitol, maltodextrin, or aspartame.

I really need some help. I am not feeling good on this diet at all. I am light-headed, dizzy, grumpy and tired all the time. I am getting my sea salt, olive oil, veggies, salad, protein, and taking 4 protein packs a day (I was told to take 1 extra every day because I am still breastfeeding). I am taking all vitamins, cal-mag, and the potassium, and the enzymes (I wasn't told to take anything else). So, why do I feel so horrible?? help!
Hey! I don't think you are supposed to be using this if you are still breastfeeding. The calories are MUCH too low for what you need in a day.
Talk to your doctor or coach, this diet doesn't provide balanced nutrition you need while nursing a baby. Wait til you have stopped breast feeding then, try to drop the weight is my humble opinion.

The more you pull yourself in and out of ketosis with the cheats on alcohol, crackers, bagels, rice, candy, sweet, cookies/pastries, or any other items, THE HARDER this diet is and THE WORSE you will feel. I don't wish to be mean but the truth is, you MUST be committed to doing this and getting it over with. Going in and out of ketosis is hard on your body chemistry and literally makes you feel horrible. If you can get started and stick with it the cravings will go away, the energy will go up, and you will feel GOOD!

Hello everyone!
I just want to say how great it is to read everyones progress and support here. My husband and I will be starting our IP on Tuesday.. I can't wait!!

I am new to the bords, but not new to weight loss. I was in WW for a long time and I started off strong. I lost 180lbs but after being on the program for 3 years, I fell off hard! over the past 4 years I have managed to gain 100 of those lbs back. My husbands co-worker is using IP with amazing results, I thought.. why not, all I have to loose is weight.

I look forward to reading everyones success and tips and I will try to share my journey as well.

Wishing everyone a wonderful day ..
