I successfully finished IP in May and lost 28 pounds, then went a little crazy during maintenance and never recovered properly and gained some weight back. I would like to get back to where I was when I went into maintenance and lose the 7 pounds I gained
, but my marathon training has started and I don't know if I can get by on the amount of calories and carbs in the regular IP. I'm averaging about 30+ miles a week.
I'm not sure what protocol I should do? The Alternative Protocol (3 additional food choices, not alternative products) or the athletic protocol I've read about. Has anyone had success doing the IP Alternative Protocol while maintaining a relatively strenuous exercise routine? Any thoughts, tips? What about the Athletic Protocol? Is there an protocol sheet for the Athletic plan? Sorry for all the questions. Just wanted to see what others have done and had success with.
