Well here goes my week day schedule, please join and post yours also or give me tips if you see something I could change:

6:30am: wake up
8:00am: coffee with 2oz rtd
9:30: IP drink
12:00 veggie lunch & IP
4:00pm IP snack
7:00pm Dinner
10:30pm Bed
Weekly weight loss: 1-3 pounds a week
I like snack before dinner because I'm starving by the time I'm getting ready to go home.

The only thing I can think of is my coach told me to eat an hour after waking and eating my last snack an hour before bed. I wonder it would help to eat half your snack before dinner and half before bed.

Every other week I have brussel sprouts (1 cup)...as a treat ( I love them)

The only comment I would have about your schedule is that due to eating you snack midday and you breakfast so late you are going over 14 hours out of every 24 with no essentially no caloric/protein intake. I was not a morning person when I started IP and like you, would delay breakfast for several hours after waking up. I eventually began to force myself to eat earlier. I don't know if it helped my weight loss or not (I was almost to the point of phasing off) but it made it a lot easier to move to phase 3 where you are REQUIRED to eat the big breakfast.

I"d be interested to hear other people's thoughts but I was told that as soon as you eat in the morning your body begins to rev up and your metabolism increases. So if you eat earlier you are burning more calories sooner. Not sure if that is science or myth, though.


I wonder if you could do an afternoon snack with 1/2 your IP and some veggies (celery stix?) and then do the same right before bed? Or move your breakfast earlier?

anyway, great job on your loss!
I agree It sounds like way too long after getting up in the morning to eat. wow! I couldn't do it. Doesn't sound healthy to let your body without food. BUT I am not a medical professional. Seems many are waiting several hours after getting up to eat though an people are losing.

My schedule is not as set my work schedule is kinda whacky. Sometimes I work til midnight and the back to work at 8 sometimes not etc.

If it is hot yoga day I drink 1/2 a choc drink before yoga and the other 1/2 after.

breakfast within 1 hour of getting up
vanilla RTD mixed with flavored tea

lunch 3 to 4 hours later
IP packet
2 cups of veggies
salad

snack
salad (lettuce only)

dinner
cooked protein
2 cups veggies

before bed
IP choc drink, mixed with hot peppermint tea lately
or if the next morning is 6am hot yoga then I have an IP bar so I have the carb energy first thing in the morning

It sounds like you are already planning some changes, but I just thought I would toss this out there for others to consider...

I'm not a dr. or a coach, but my understanding is that in Phase 1 your are meant to always be in a steady state of ketosis (it does not stop just because you eat breakfast, as long as you don't eat too many carbs). And the idea of the paced out meals is to be sure your body always has protein readily available so it continues to burn fat (and does not instead go after your muscle--which includes your heart!).

I was told (and I have heard others say they were told) to eat the snack as late at night as possible and to eat breakfast within an hour of getting up, so that your body is never going more than 8-9 hours without some intake of protein. If you have not done so already you may want to read Dr. Tran's book, the link to the free download is on the first page of every day's chat. Look at pages 45-48, which I think speaks to this question.
