Default Do you get one restricted a day?

Just wondering, since everyone gets different coaches. I am allowed one a day, but I want a faster weight loss; so I'm thinking of cutting down to 4 restricteds a week and lower and lower til I reach my goal.

How long has it taken you to get to a 13 pound loss so far?

I'm still new to the program, but I'm using the restricteds more for convenience then anything else. My coach has said no more than 1 a day since day 1 (and I think that's the general protocol), but when I'm ordering my food I sit down with my calender and super busy days where I don't have enough time for anything else I get a restricted.

Last week I got 4 and lost 11 lbs but this week I only needed 2. Time will tell I suppose.

I am losing rather slowly week to week too. I know its all relative though. I've lost 20 pounds in 8 weeks but it's slowing to 1.5 last week and 1.0 this week. I had been doing 2 nonrestricted packets + 1 restricted a day. Some days I'd just do 3 nonrestricted packets. My coach told me today I should absolutely be having 3 nonrestricteds + 1 restricted every day. She said if we deprive our bodies too much of carbs(I.e. Not eating restricteds) then our bodies will have to generate carbs on it's own to survive. The brain requires carbs to function. So if we restrict too much we will stall. I am going to have my 3 + 1 for the next week and see what happens. If I have a bigger loss I'll let you know! If I have a gain I'll let you know when I'm finished crying

I'm also going to try limiting my restricted packets to three per week. Somedays however it's the only thing that keeps me going!
My weighloss has slowed down in the last two weeks.

Darn! I only lost about 2lb last week, and so far only .5 ; this is a really slow week for me. I've been also trying to drink green tea every morning to see if it helps.. I don't know. Just gotta go see my coach I guess. But I know of some people doing bootcamp.. but not sure if it actually works.

Our restricted packets were limited to one per day. I found my weight loss was better when I had my restricted earlier in the day than late at night.

This makes total sense. This is how the program is set up. Following it as it is outlined it is still low cal, low fat and low carb. I am amazed how many people immediately start cutting back. The body then thinks it's under attack and shuts down. Also when you phase off and start adding things back the body is in shock and then holds on to every carb.

My coach has me on TWO unrestricted and ONE restricted a day. I have only been on IP for about 9 days but have lost over 6 lbs already. I guess we will see how it goes. I asked my coach if I NEEDED to have my 1 restriction and she told me ABSOLUTELY for my brain!! Good luck to you! You are a very pretty girl!!

Hi All - there seems to be quite a few differences in all of our coaches. The general protocol says that we have 3 IP packets a day (no more than 1 can be a restricted) - however, some of us do all 3 packets as non-restricted.

I haven't had a solid BM since I started. My coach says this is not the usual. I have to check with my doctor and see what he says. Most IP users are supposed to have the opposite affect. Maybe we have trouble with absorption? I would check with your coach, how long has it been going on?
