I just started the Ideal Protein Diet on Monday. So far I have lost 15 pounds. Today is the hardest yet.. I am craving pizza and ice cream badly.

My name is Vanessa and I am 31 yrs old. My husband is doing this diet too so hopefully we can stick with something.

My biggest suggestion is just to stick with it. The craving will only last so long but the benefits will far outway caving into the temptation. Keep thinking back to the way you felt when you stepped on the scale and saw the 15 pounds gone. Every WI gives me the drive to get to my next WI. Luckily, there will be some cravings that you can still feed. If you get a craving for a type of food, eat something in the same flavor profile. For example, I love mexican food. If I get a craving for mexican, I can cook up a little chicken and pablano peppers and add a little cumin, and put them in lettuce leaves like little tacos. Toss on some cilantro and maybe some home-made pico and you're set. You get the mexican food to fill the craving without the cheating. You'll thank yourself when you step on the scale.

I just started on Monday aswell. I'm with you on the pizza, but sticking with it.
My main problem now is getting down the veggies.

I just started Monday too! Are you doing the "real" IP program? If so, just think how much you have invested. You can't take this step and not see it through. You can do it!

I believe I am doing the real IP. I am seeing a nutritionist. Is there another version of this diet?

It is hard for me to get all the veggies down too!! I am so not a veggie person, but the past 3 days I have just choked them down.

Welcome! I am in MS too. You can do this. The cravings pass, stick to it. Being at your goal will taste better than any pizza.

I guess I meant are you using the IP products and following it the way you're supposed to.

You can do it!!! I'm in my 7th week and have lost 23 lbs. I'm concidered a a "slow" loser but I'm totally thrilled with that amount! Trust me, I LOVE food but this diet is really worth it. Btw, I'm in MS too, Ridgeland. What clinic are you going to for the IP products? There is an alternative option to "do it on your own". Basically you can buy the exact same products online for much less but the offical policy of the IP is that they have to cut you off if you do. I suggest starting out with the nutritionist for a few weeks until you get in the swing of things then doing it on your own if you want. Good Luck!

I am going for my first consultation tomorrow and plan to begin Friday. Pretty nervous about downing all the veggies as well.
Quick question: Must you eat 2 cups at lunch and again at dinner or can you spread it through the day for extra snacks?

I just finished my first week on Monday and have lost 5lbs. I am EXTREMELY proud of myself for losing the 5lbs since I don't think I ever lost that much with any other diet program. I've been lucky and have not had any side effects or cravings. I am trying to be strong and committed to this diet plan. I hope I will reach my goal.

I started IP last week and I go in for my first WI tomorrow morning. I'm hoping it is good because I miss my carbs and some days feel like torture. About how long will it be before the cravings die down?

I just started IP this week and so far so good.
No headaches yet and I'm pleasantly surprised at the taste of the food.
Anyone know if chicken/vegetable broth is allowed? Or just the water/coffee/tea on the list....
Thanks!

I started May 1, and had some moments in the first week, but I just kept telling myself that this is a short term deal. I will someday be able to eat a slice of pizza again, but just in moderation not a half of pizza !
