Good morning! I hope you are all warm and cozy. The temps are finally back near the freezing mark in St. Louis which only means ice and drivers that don't know how to drive. I guess that is better than so cold my toes might fall off. I don't know how you all do it up North.

You will be fine having 3/4 to 1cup. I hope you enjoy the meal.


You and I made the same mistake! Couts is Rene, another one of our male members! I know we don't have many so it is easy to think it is a girls club!

Here is a shout out to all our guys - wyomingguy, Tedski, Josh, Sales god Dave, our other Ted, and Rene aka Couts.

Carla, THANKYOU for all your advice.... I look forward to reading what you have to say each day... and yes, I took just under 1c of the egg whites and it was great! something HOT on a cold cold winter evening... thank you again

I did make time to go to the doctor yesterday. It was followup for my blood work I had run last week. I haven't had anything done for about 4 months, since shortly after taking a break from the program.

SO....... I HAVE AMAZING results!

I started the program with the start of hypothyroidism, indications of growing hypoglycemia, normal but low cholesterol, and high normal blood pressure, low cortisol indicating fatigued adrenals, acid reflux, and mild sleep apnea. During the program, my thyroid showed improvement, blood sugar seemed to be looking more normal, no change to adrenals, acid reflux cleared and apnea cleared. My cholesterol actually went crazy LOW.

At the end of 8 months the rest had stayed the same but, my thyroid had begun to approach normal.

SO, yesterday, the results were great!!!

I now have NORMAL thyroid! Yes!!! Even a high normal activity. Normal is between 1 and 2 in tsh reading. My tsh is now 1.35. I WAS 3.45 just a year ago!! I really wasn't sure what it would take to improve my thyroid and I didn't know that the diet would help. It seems to have done just that in my case.

My blood sugar and a1c indicate normal and no longer low blood sugar.

I do have low blood pressure still but, that runs in my family for generations.

I have normal adrenal function.

AND, my cholesterol is back to normal!!

Total cholesterol is 138, HDL is 70, Triglycerides are 35, and LDL is 33.

My mouth (teeth and gums are normal again) and my hair is growing back in.

My doctor is so excited about the results she said Everything looks "text book ideal". I really feel great now too.

It is so nice to go through the program, see the weight come off and, see all the health issues I have been wondering about for 20 years change for the better!

Seeing how well my body rebounded after the program, I am looking forward to going through the process again. I have complete confidence in how well this program works short and long term!

I am so happy for you Carla! congrats It goes to prove that a healthy diet, low in fats etc DO make a positive chg in how we look, how we feel and over all health... YAY YOU

Great substitution choices!
I was wondering, too, why everyone gets so worked up telling me that my program is not healthy when I started it.
Losing a chunk of weight sure makes them think!

Its good to see I as well, was not alone, in eating all that 'bad food' while watching Biggest Loser... how ironic! They are working out, losing weight and I was sitting on the couch cheering them on, wishing it were me, as I took another piece of cheese and washed it down with red wine... mmmm ....NOW as you all said...we are watching AND losing at the same time... yahoooooooooooooo

Default Just made appt to start Ideal Protein....

I will be starting Ideal Protein Jan 1, 2011. I have read nothing but positive reviews about this diet and can't really find any negative reviews. I really need to lose 40-50lbs and I am ready to be committed. I had a second baby this past September and I am having a really hard time losing the weight this time around. I was going to start immediately but my Dr. felt that it would be best to move into it past Christmas to be 100% committed, so Jan 1 is kickoff. Any tips or advice to help get thru phase 1 would be deeply appreciated.
