Salad- Out to lunch

Snack:
Iced Coffee with a Chocolate Shake

Dinner:

Morning All! Scale is inching, I am not seeing the big drops that you all seem to have when first starting out...but I am still plugging along.

Phase I, Alternatives:

B: coffee; Atkins meal bar
L: Pure Protein vanilla shake; 1c Cucs, 1c zucchini
S: Choc Shake
D: Ground turkey burger, 8ozs; 2c broccoli

water water water and more water

NOVAScents: I noticed that you eat 2 snacks...has that affected your losses? I thought the program calls for only one snack? But I would love to be able to add in another if I need to.

Honestly, I've never done the cleanse, but had looked through some threads on it and that sounds similar to some other folks reactions - as far as gassy during the cleanse, but sounded like good losses after. I did go through a few boxes of herbal 'Detox' teas off & on throughout the past few months (too cheap to buy the cleanse, but interested in your observations!).

YES! I LOVE this thread, it motivates you to plan your day from the start, and also gives you ideas and meal inspiration. You can do this!

It looks like she is splitting her food up into mini-meals with a free salad & veggies at lunch, which is totally okay if it helps your hunger! Just get in your 3 IP + 8oz protein + 4 cups veggies each day (and free lettuce).

Shuffle & split as you need to adjust to your schedule and hunger! Personally I swap my snack & dinner and also split up my 2 cups lunch veggies between 1 cup @ breakfast and 1 cup @ lunch - also I 'frontload' my breakfast smoothie with an extra dose of lettuce for extra filler & fiber. Find what works for you, just eat your food!

LizRR, thanks for the reply. Now that I look at it more closely, yes I can see how she is splitting it. I can get pretty full on free lettuce and 2 cups of veggies at lunch, so having my shake as an afternoon snack instead of with lunch sounds good to me! Then that still frees me to have a snack at night, during our family snack time.

I am trying to adopt a more regular pattern for having meals as well. I think I need to go with "set" times to eat so that I am not suddenly finding myself overly hungry. Today I am modeling your schedule actually: 8,12,4,and 8. Let's see how it goes!

One last thing: Can I get a ruling on herbal tea? It's caffeine free and I drink it with nothing in it, but it is flavored. Ingredients on tea bag: peppermint. Is it OK to drink herb teas?

Thanks!

Phase 1, week 6, day 7:
Breakfast
@ 7:30 - IP cereal pancake w/2 egg whites, b. soda, vanilla, and WF syrup on top
Snack @ 10:30 - (was really hungry this morning for some reason) restricted bar
Lunch @ 12:30 - Leek soup w/chopped roasted veggies (1 c), salad w/1 c veggies (no dressing today)
usually have an afternoon snack, but had it earlier today
Supper @ 5:30 - 6 ish: going to try the Miracle noodles finally, WF pasta sauce (2-3 Tab), meatballs made from lean grd. beef, egg white, & seasonings. Should probably only use 6 - 7 oz grd beef since adding in an egg white.

Oops - need to have a salad or veggies with supper too. (I've been quite scattered this week, so my meal planning isn't up to par.)

LizRR, do you mind sharing how you make your spicy puree? Do you make a large quantity and use a little throughout the week or make new everyday? Thanks for your input!

Also, I'm super jealous you do body pump! It was my favorite class before starting IP. Really looking forward to the point where I can start it up again...spinning too

What is this cleanse you're on? This is the first time I've heard about someone being on a cleanse while doing IP.

I am a total carbaholic, and was missing my pasta, so I decided to improvise to stay OP. I used rhudabaga instead of spaghetti noodles ... it was wonderful! I hadn't cooked with rhudabaga before, but I was very happy as it looked and tasted like real spaghetti :O)))
