That is why so many of us find phase 1 easy after we get going on it. A routine is established and we don't have to think about it too much. With each of the following steps we need to reestablish a routine.


Dr Oz:

The average person eats up to 50% more food when distracted. Plus it takes about 30 minutes for your body to realize you are full, so if you are hungry when you sit down to eat, and you eat as quickly as most Americans do, you are just going to keep throwing down food before that feeling sets in.
The more decisions we make in a day, the more likely we are to make bad decisions-because deciding wears you down. You start making decisions in the morning, and by the middle of the afternoon,you're running on fumes. And as the day goes on, you start to crave more carbs especially women because women tend to make more of the day-to-day decisions in our lives than men.
So to the extent it is possible, don't make so many decisions. Do what you can to automate your life-and your food-during the day.
The number one reason Americans are heavy:the brain, very smartly, wants nutrition. But the average American is not eating nutrients; he or she is eating empty calories. So you finish that 2000 calories and the brain says; Keep going until you get nutrients.
Thanks! I love Dr. Oz too! Once I can make a habit, good or bad, I'm pretty good at keeping it up. Today, my challenge is to figure out Phase 4 snacks and what I can do late morning and late afternoon to help me get to meals without losing it. The process continues...

My coach just emailed me a couple days ago with a reply from the district office on how stress affects weight loss negatively. I have an extremely stressful job and now this. I hope I lose this week. I don't feel as though I've lost.

Thanks again, Molly
That's great news, Molly. Hang in there, you'll both get through this...

I think the fat in the egg yolk is a good addition. I have also been taking 1 tbsp of mct as my clinic is promoting this. Not sure if it is doing anything yet!
I try to ensure I eat sufficient fat in my protein-I have steak and ground beef a couple times a week.
I think as your body fat drops, and i mean low, and your exercise increases that there is a greater need for dietary fat, but this is just my opinion.

Outside the mct my coach recommends I have an extra unrestricted packet, or 2 hb eggs, to supplement my exercise needs. I don't always do this, only if I am hungry.

I think that for most non endurance athletes with some weight to lose that phase 1 as is is sufficient to support regular exercise. But again, each coach and clinic will have their own ideas. My coach is a long time athlete and may see things differently than most others, who seem to be successful ip ers.

For most people looking for weight loss phase 1 with no exercise seems to be an excellent plan.

Good morning all! Off to another fun filled day at work. I have my egg and big salad packed for lunch with some bbq curls....yum!

No, this isn't allowed. I would not recommend it even if they are low in everything, there is a lot of sodium in most of them

Hope you are able to get your get-together menu finalized, and everyone has a great time. As far as tips on how to stay away from the other stuff, I can only say that everytime I think about wanting to eat something OP, I remember how expensive each week of IP food is, and how frustrated I'd be with myself if I ate something that threw me out of ketosis. Each 'slip' not only costs significant$ but it takes around 72 hours for your body to get back to ketosis again.

As for my own progress report.... it's only day 5, but I'm relieved to be through the first 4 days of the program as I keep reading that it's often tough. I had several times when I was a little dizzy and had some headaches, but all in all things were pretty good for me. A little sea salt followed up with some water definitely righted things.

One question. How do you know when you're in ketosis? I would expect I should be there today, but I don't feel any different. I've read other posts on this subject and I think I recall somebody saying that I shouldn't be as hungry once I'm in ketosis? Any thoughts will be appreciated.

I wish all of you a happy and healthy 100% OP day.
If you are following the sheet and are in your 5th day you should be in Ketosis. I never felt any different, some say the craving stop, bad breathe and such but I never got any of this.

3sisters.....keep your water with you at all time and chew gum. I know for me if I am chewing gum I don't want to put anything in my mouth. All of that food will be there the NEXT family reunion and you will be MUCH healthier and happier. Stick to the program, you will be happy that you did!

Now on to ME.....I loss 5.3lbs this week!!!....making it 140lbs in 11 months!...I am one happy girl right now that is for sure! My coach was right when she said my body needed to be shocked and put me on phase 3 for 2 weeks....it has paid off!!....I am BELOW my original goal of 250 so I am STILL IN SHOCK!!!....its going to be a GREAT day!

Thanks for the responses yesterday about exercise and "squishiness". I decided to join a gym last night. Even if I only go two days a week to start, It will be a good life habit. We'll see how it goes...

On the topic of collagen... I don't know if many of you have tried the Blueberry Cran Granata, but it is my favorite. I have it almost every day for lunch. My sister (also on IP) and I call it "skinny juice". The key is to mix it with 20oz of water instead of the recommended 8oz. It tastes like KoolAid. I've even put it on ice or in a martini glass and had it as a mock-tail.

Cheers!

No, its just what happens to us when we start opening up our fat cells. It messes with your periods. I received an info sheet about that from my coach.

I will make sure I have a restricted item today.

I have a few things going on with me that I wanted to see if anyone else has them too. I am freezing all of the time since I started IP and my nose runs clear liquid all day long. It will just pour out like water and I have a hard time catching it sometimes. Just seems strange to me.

Hope everyone has a great day.
Oh my gosh. I have the nose thing too. I'm prone to allergies so I just assumed some new allergen floated into town. But the runny nose thing exactly coincides with IP. The freezing thing is also ketosis, but I don't know why. I am on phase 3 for surgery and the freezing thing is better but the nose still goes.
