thanks, don't have those in seattle (I think) but the WF rep said the safeway close to my house has it. Funny, the safeways here are so white trashy that I never thought to check for it in there. Safeways are only good for TP around here.

Every day since January I questionned myself whether I could do it or not! Had my ups (like right now!) and downs (when I broke to tears saying I can't do this anymore and/or cheated!). A good advice would be to follow the plan and postpone every temptation to 30min. after the next meal. That is usually when I feel great about myself, about the plan and not hungry! It is easier then to say I don't need this food, I am worth feeling good about myself and... maybe I'll eat a piece when I am done with the program!

Hi SylnieG,
I am inspired by your progress but was hoping that after being on the program for so long, you wouldn't get hungry and the amount of food would be enough. Are you hungry when you are tempted or do you crave carbs and food you can't have?

Sure can as long as it's not a restricted package. I live off of the vanilla and strawberry pudding

Yes. Lots of people just do the drinks.

Also, Lindora has free shipping on orders over $50 from now through this Sunday.

I have a couple of questions for the more experienced ladies on IP:
Do you know about MIM (muffin in a minute) from Atkins? Can you use that in IP? I have horrific constipation problems that when I am on low carbs plans worsen. It seems like what ever I do is only good for a short time and my body ajusts to it, so that it won't work any more. This has been the case with colace, dulcolax, fiber, roughage, acidophilus (I guess this can be counted as probiotic), magnesium, metamucil and water with all of these. of those who have the same problem, what works for you on this plan?
One other concern I have is not only missing fruit but also the fact that not eating them puts me down the wrong road! MIM has been working for me so far but I was wondering if it can be used on IP.

I check this forum with a lot of excitement every time. I am amazed at how many people are as engaged in this plan as I have only met one person who has been on it.

Lindora is a company similar to Ideal Protein. They sell packets that are similar to IP's, except they are about half the price. Some have 2-3 more carbs than their IP counterpart. You have to be careful to check the ingredients. Some of the items have aspartame in them. However, Dr. Tran said aspartame was OK to eat on the plan. I don't eat it cause it gives me migraines. Some people think it's "evil." Some items are too expensive to buy at either place. For example, a box of soy nuts from Ideal Protein has 7 packets containing about 1 ounce each. $27 is way too much to pay for 7 ounces of soy nuts. The same box at Lindora costs $6.75. However, you can get a bag of soy nuts from the health food store containing over 11 ounces for $1.63. Just measure out 1-ounce portions for yourself. Identical bars (I only buy the caramel nut bars) made by the same manufacturer sell for $27 a box at Ideal Protein and $13.50 at Lindora. You get the picture. Check out Lindora's website at www.lindora.com.

I hate the soups with all my heart. Take them back and do an exchange! I have done that twice now and seems like I have to do it again as they gave me the banana/pineapple drink which I also hate hate hate.

you can have any 3 packages that you want per day as long as they are NOT on the restricted items list.

Glad you dropped by. Don't be a stranger!

Cool... let's do Phase 3 together.

Wow! Thank you for explaining that. That is really good to know and I plan on checking that out.

I looked it up on line and here is the recipe:


"Muffin in a Minute (MIM)
Nutritional Information
Per Serving:

Net Carbs: 3.2 grams
Fiber: 8.8 grams
Protein: 12 grams
Fat: 18 grams
Calories: 243

Makes: 1 serving

Ingredients:

1/4 cup flax meal (8.09 total carbs, 7.6 fiber)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder (0.64 net carbs)
1 packet splenda packet (0.9 net carbs)
1 teaspoon cinnamon (1.84 total carbs, 1.2 fiber)
1 large egg (0.6 net carbs)
1 teaspoon butter
(can add tablespoon of sour cream to make more moist)


Directions:

Put the dry ingredients in a coffee mug.
Stir.
Then add the egg and the butter. Mix.
Microwave 1 minute (or more). Take out. slice, butter, eat.
Cream cheese would go nicely, too.
The shape of this can be changed by making it in a bowl.
It can be "toasted" once it's cooked.
The cinnamon can be replaced. I would imagine that any sugar free syrup could be added.
Some people count the flax as a carb/fiber wash, so then the net carbs would be 2.78."



If it were me, I would use one of my teaspoons of olive oil in place of the butter and use the MIM in place of a meal packet. 12 protein grams is a little light. You could have half of a protein shake with 0 to 1 carb in addition to the muffin. And, of course, don't use the sour cream, cream cheese, or butter for spreading. The fat content is pretty high though. Nine of those grams are in the flax meal. You could use 1 or 2 egg whites instead of a whole egg to cut the fat down. The rest of the fat would be in the olive oil, which we need every day anyway. Remember, your body doesn't get knocked out of ketosis by fat. However, it has to burn the dietary fat before burning your body fat. The fat in flax meal is really high quality though and high in Omega 3's. It's your call. Oh, yeah, I'd count it as a restricted item due to the higher calorie content and fat content.

I just checked the website. They sell protein shakes and such. Are these alolowed to be substituted. i looked them over and compared them to some of the IP products and most are identical in nutritional values and numbers.
