I also found things like soy nuts and a few other products which seem plan appropriate at The Low Carb Grocery Store (which is located near Toronto). I also bought all my WF products from them. One day while shopping in Shoppers Drug Mart I happened to notice they sold ProtiLife Peanut Butter bars which match well when compared with the equivalent IP bar label. They are good, and I'll definitely get them again. ProtiLife offers the standard run of products as well, and you can order them from their Canadian online store.

These websites all give the nutritional data and the label for the products... I just compared the IP nutritional/label details with those given for the alternate products I was considering. Mine aren't necessarily always 'exact' replacements, but do fit the criteria closely - and I am losing weight, so they seem to be working. I lost 6.6 lbs on my first WI (which was last Wednesday), and when I gave in to curiosity yesterday and stepped on the scale it showed another 2.5 lb loss. I'm trying to only weight myself once per week to avoid being frustrated by any daily fluctuations through the week - and my 'formal at-home' WI will be done on Wednesday.

I hope this helps. Hopefully some of our other Canadian posters will chime in as well.
Thanks so much great information - this is exactly what I needed I am going to try to get an order (or 2) sent this week.

I am sure that is where they're making most of their money at the clinics.

Has anyone used the Lean Muscle drinks from GNC - here are the stats let me know if it sounds OK
170 calories, total fat 6g, total carb 6g, sugars 2g, protein 25g, 0 transfat
They have a sale on them buy a case of 12 and get 2nd case for 1/2 price (so they would cost less than $2. each).

I'll have to check the box when I get home - but I am 99% sure that the Proti-Diet white cheddar snacks are EXACTLY the same as the IP ones. Same silver space packaging, same stamp on the outside of the bag with "best by" date. Good thing too because they are my FAVORITE!

And then we buy it from Nashua Nutrition for less money. It is the SAME product, it is just sold by a different company. Make sense? Some of the Maintainers have found a few of these products (IP products sold under another label) on the market. I just thought it would be great if we could use our collective experience with Nashua, Lindora, etc. and see if we can identify them.

I got you the first time. I'm told the premiere nutrition choco and vanilla shakes at Costco are exactly the same as the IP RTD shakes, quantity is slightly more, thus the nutritional breakdown may appear different.

Chocolate soy puffs are definitely the same.

Ok so I just went through this thread and compiled a list. Thought I'd share for anyone else who wants EXACT copys of IP products sold under an other name. I haven't tried these yet so I'm just going off what was posted. let me know if I missed any.

Proi-thin products: sea salt & vinagar, chocolate soy puffs, chocolate peanut bar, caramel nut bar, Vanilla peanut bars (look at the pic on Nashua Nutrition and on the IP website. It's exatly the same pic! lol)
Proti-diet: white chedar snacks
New Lifestyle: chocolate and Vanilla RTD
Dr Bernstiiens: Chocolate and vanilla RTD (canada only?)
Premier Nutrition: Chocolate and Vanilla RTD (bigger serving size, so be careful. avalable @ costco)

Thanks for all the great info guys! It's nice to know what is out there that is giving me what I would get form my coach but wont make my walet skinny.

I compared the nutritional stats and they arent the same for the Snackergy. the quantity may be different, but they arent exactly the same.

I didn't think so. The same person mentioned the protithin vanilla peanut bars in the same post so I thought they understood what we were looking for. The only one I am 100% sure of is the van peanut bars because they used the same pic on both sites.

Thanks for bumping ladies! I need to seriously look into the alternatives I think. I'm doing so well for once, but IP is a little cost prohibitive.

It seems to be hit or miss if they decide to add custom fees.
