W5 tonight, hopefully there are some inches gone as I have been doing some light fat burning exercise.
Sorry to be such a downer, I just need to vent. Here's to a new day, a new week and a new life.
We all have these days...all of us...so you don't let it grab you today...drink your water and eat only nr foods today...its what you do today that matters..so get back in the grove...

Is it ok to have fruit and nuts for snacks throughout the day? Can anyone give me a sample of what their "normal" menu is like? Thanks!!

I would really like this information also. I am starting phase 4 today and I am scared! I don't know what to eat. I would really like to know what people are eating in 4.

My coach said that we are supposed to stay away from legumes on phase 1 and technically that is what this is...but if i absolutely have to then fine i can have some and i just have to count it toward my 5 oz of protein that i would be eating for dinner. ultimately we decided it was just best to save it for when i can phase them back into my diet.

So WI #5 and yippee down another 3.8!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PROGRAM!!!! half way to my goal now!!! HOORAY!!!

Lilly- edamame is not allowed on phase 1.

I'm seriously so thankful for this board and all the advice I get. I found myself with my coach today being like: "well on 3FC they say...." Whoops. Hope I didn't annoy her. She hadn't heard of the required restricted or increase in protein.

The BIG news is that today marks 4 weeks and with my 4.6 lb loss I've lost exactly 20 lbs!! The reason this blows my mind is that my insulin resistance has made me a slooooow loser on every weight loss program I tried. NOT IP!!

Amber..congrats!!! Keep it coming!!! :P

I asked in the recipe thread if we were allowed having lentils in phase1 but no one answered..so I am asking here.
I would make Lebanese lentil soup..since this makes my stomach work if you know what I mean( sry! ) without taking any floralax!
Same goes for corn...I know we aren't allowed and I know corn makes some people constipated...but if it does the exact opposite for people..are we still not allowed having any..because of the sugar I presume?

I`m forgetting what sweeteners we are allowed to use? Is splenda ok? Also, NSV....took a bath last night and my belly doesn`t hardly stick out of the water anymore! I used to look like a beached whale in the bathtub, not anymore! And that`s with only 13#s lost; what will it be like when the other 15-20#s gone?! Can`t wait

I have been finding myself feeling ridiculously emotional the last few days - crying for no reason, getting way too upset about little things, beyond stressed at work.
I am contemplating taking a day off of work to recuperate from everything going on. I have followed the program to a T since I started and continue to enjoy the weight loss, however I am finding myself feeling more and more afraid of losing the weight. I have never been a healthy weight even since a young age - while I don't like the way that I am now, it is what I have known all my life and don't deal well with change.
Change is always incredibly difficult! I KNOW!! But I also know from experience (years ago) that if you continue with your weight loss, you will be stronger, happier, healthier, and much more confident. yay :-)

Also part of the emotion you're feeling is probably from the hormonal changes in your body. It will take some time, but I'm sure these will adjust.

Hang in there!!!

I did not go to my weigh in yesterday. I am frustrated with the two different coaches that are at the clinic. They do not take their time measuring me, seems like they are too bothered to take any time with me. Thinking of going on with this solo. It is a lot of money to spend to get poor service. I can weigh myself. The problem is the products, I have been researching other products. It appears that you can get similar products if you stick to the basics like puddings and soups. Any comments?

Have a great day!

Hello Linda!

First of all.. Good job on the 20 pounds you have worked hard and you deserve it! I know it can be frustrating to have a coach that don't care that much.. mine is not very good but not bad. I know I could do this by myself but it gives me I little bit more motivation to go there and WI every weeks. I can prove to that person that I'm not a failure.. I don't know if that's clear, because if I do it by myself and one week I don't loose it will depress me and I could stop! Why change something that works?

I talk for me, but I hope you take the best decision ! Have a very good IP day!

Lentils and Corn are not allowed on phase 1 - 1 cup of lentils has somewhere in the vicinity of 45 carbs and only about 4 grams of fiber -- (again this might be different if you are doing the vegetarian version of IP) -- As for corn - this is also higher in carbs but for people who have insulin resistance corn can be a glucose nightmare (even worse than beans since beans at least have some protein ) -- so for now I would stay away from all legumes and lentils as well as corn.

As for the other issue -- go get this product by Nature Vitality called "Calm" it is a fizzy powder you put it water (the raspberry lemon tastes the best) a heaping teaspoon at night works like a charm (it is form of magnesium-so it is not a stimulant or a laxative and is not addictive)

Sorry I don't have better news about corn and lentils
