THANKS wuv2bloved!

I'll try the 1/2 pkt before and after. I def. get the veggies. I use a cup and since it s volume fill...I think am getting them all in. I have trouble getting all the 8oz of protein during dinner. I eat mostly seafood, and make stuff like curry, soups, etc and its not easy to weight just the seafood, some fish tend to melt. I am getting all of my salt and oo.

Thanks

You are probably not getting enough protein in at dinner that is probably where your issue is coming in. Can you not measure your portion your before you cook it and put enough in a smaller pan to cook so that you make sure you get your correct amount? I know you are remote and you are doing the best you can, just trying to think of different ways that you could do it

I also noticed she is not getting her snack in. Perhaps a IP shake an hour before bed will make a difference.

Well, big day for me - finally went to the gym.

My local gym has a promo to try it for 5 days, and since I started stage 3 yesterday it seemed like the right time to finally work out (I haven't been to a gym for 3 years, do you think that might have had something to do with putting on weight ).

I've never been a "class" person, but did a combo class with 20 mins on bikes (RealRyders - they tilt right to left like real bikes, was worried I was going to land on my head ), 20 minutes on "KrankCycle" (you "pedal" with your arms, then 20 mins of step/abs. It was really energizing.

Now I have to figure out if I add protein when I exercise when I'm on stage 3? Does anyone know? I had a 500 calorie breakfast, but I know I burned far more in the class than a usual morning for me.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

TGIF everyone, hope you're all having a great day!

I have a question, i was looking at the protocol (the old one posted in the stickies) as i was thinking of making a coleslaw with oil/vinegar and wanted to double check what time of cabbage we're allowed but when looking it over, i noticed that for allowed or occasional peppers (which i think they're all allowed now) it says cooked beside it...are we supposed to only have cooked peppers?

They put your weight on your driver's licence?!!! Glad they don't do this in Canada !

I eat mine raw (peppers) and you can have green cabbage. That is what I eat and have had no problems

Hey there

How are you? Hope you're doing well.

All I know is the green pepper is non-restricted and all coloured ones are limited to twice a week.

As for cabbage, it seems nothing is clear about this subject as I read many threads about it, it seems some coaches say it is ok to have it and others say no, some say it is ok for the green not the red and some say it is ok for all kinds of cabbage, so... with that, I can never be sure, all I know is that many people said they eat cabbage and it does not affect their weight loss at all (and I am one of them, as I ate cabbage since the very first beginning).

Good morning!

First day on IP and doing fine so far, although the omelet did taste a little funky in my opinion. I feel fortunate that my couch made me an assorted bag of 30 different packets for the first week, so I can try all of the different foods and figure out which are my favorites. I'm taking notes so I can know which ones to buy later.

The challenge that I've had is swallowing the pills-ugh! They are huuuge, and I am bad really bad at swallowing meds. Maybe this is my chance to get good at it!

I took before pictures in my bikini last night and was pretty grossed out by the sagging skin and cellulite. Luckily not too many people see me in that form- I can't wait to see a physical change.

Good luck to everyone on the upcoming weekend!

-Allison
