Default Starting IP need some assistance

very long story but I'm trying to start IP on Monday. I took my oreintation and purchased food 6 months ago but was unable to start due to finances and continued female issues that I believe would have wasted my money on IP.

I was so excited and ready to go in July but now I'm just worried I'm going to do it incorrectly. I plan to schedule an appointment to meet with my new coach but really want to start with what I have already.

can anyone please review the dos and don'ts of the program until I can meet my coach. (I'm missing some paperwork too). I understand the no carbs portion (similar to Atkins but low fat too) but basically forgot what I need to eat in addition to packages.

also, has anybody done IP while dealing with Menorrhagia? (no cysts, etc. just continuous bleeding even after Mirena)

I appreciate any assistance. (I am skimming thru the forums too but a quick how-to would help alot).

Thank you!!!!

thank you!!!

First, you both have such amazing weight loss. Im starting at 208 but with potential hormone issues I'm not sure what to expect. I've been told that losing weight may help the hormone issues resolve itself. **hoping**

I was up until 3am reading. not sure how much I kept in there was so much. if i can make it through a week with the basics i will work on the recipes.

again, thanks!

Make sure you only have 1 restricted item a day.

This diet will have an affect on your hormones, so maybe a call to your MD will ease your mind before starting. For me, I've had heavier, more frequent TOM (time of month), that have lasted sometimes 2-3 days longer than usual. I've read here that burning fat releases estrogen and that's the cause of it. Those on birth control are encouraged to take extra precautions and some IP dieters have started TOM again after being in menopause. Good luck with whatever you decide!

You get everything that dy to start the next day. They will explain the program to you, ask if you have questions, weigh and measure you. 45mins sounds about right......good luck!!!

Hi
I saw you are located in Frederick, Md and looking for others in your area.I am located in Germantown, MD. So we are only about 20-30 mins from each other. I am using a IP center about 2 miles from my home and the doctor (Chiropractor) is the county rep for IP. I have been very impressed with them so far. I actually got calls from them yesterday and today checking on me and to see how I am feeling. I am on day three and have had no problems. I think the key to the packets is to "doctor" them up. I made cauliflower mashed "mock potatoe" tonight using the leek soup and it was great. Check out the recipe section. I printed off a bunch of stuff from this section and fun with packets and it has really helped.

Keep in touch and good luck.

I was wondering about the effects on TOM after seeing some posts about people's WI at TOM. It's good to know some of things that could happen so I don't have to worry. How does TOM factor into WI's?

The Phase 1 sheet I got from my coach has a date of 5/24/11 on it and lists 8 oz of Fish, Seafood, Beef, Poultry, Pork or Veal. I noticed that this one says 5 - 8 oz of either. Trying to figure out which is correct. I'm still in my first wk and really struggling getting down 8 oz of meat/protein at Dinner.

The one you got from you coach is the new one, it is correct.

Rissimo, thanks for answering. Have only been eating chicken and lean ground beef. So guess I'm going to have to try something else.

If you retain water you will have a very small weight loss if any so just be prepared for that mentally. I don't remember who it is but one of the newbies that just started her first WI she loss 10.6lbs then her next WI was a gain of 10lb BUT she started her TOM. So it can affect you in a major way
