I agree with you - on this! I'm guessing (for me) it's because of the loss of fat and not muscle - when I counted calories a few years ago, it felt like it took me forever to drop a size. I'm only down 11 lbs, but some of my clothes alrady fit infinitely better (blouses are looser around the chest, my skinny jeans are less suffocating, etc..).

Every one is doing so well on program! You all are so inspiring to me.

Have a great day!
Have fun at your party! I found that I lost better eating egg whites too! I have started eating 2 egg whites with grn peppers and mushrooms as soon as I get up in morning (6:30) and then eating my 1st IP packet at 9 at work. I stopped for a while thinking maybe I would lose more but my losses became smaller. I started back on egg whites and losses are going back up. I think I am needing more protein because I am so busy with my kids during the day.

there must be something to the egg white thing, I have noticed the same thing. I have had eggs two times so far (I have only been on this 4 weeks) but both times that I had the eggs, the next day I had a significant drop the next day. I a glad you posted this, I thought it was mu imagination

I've been having egg whites as my mid-Morning snack. I ave my 1st shake at 7 and then around 10:30 I get hungry so I have my egg whites, and lunch around noon.

Really enjoying reading all the posts and learning a lot. I am a newbie and first post. I am so impressed with IP diet. Unbelievable 11 lb weight loss in two weeks.

My coach said that the two egg whites should not be considered an "extra" but a necessity.

She said they were an excellent souce of protein with no fat or carbs. This makes the proram much easier with all the things you can do with the packets if you use egg whites.

I hope the party was fun.

2 egg whites
a pinch of cream of tartar
1 tsp splenda (optional)

1/2 c water
1/2 tsp strawberry or other extract.

Preheat oven to 350 and Grease 6 inch pan. Beat egg whites, tartar and splenda until stiff peaks form. In a separate bowl AFTER the whites are beaten, mix pudding packet, water and extract. Work quickly to fold the pudding into the egg whites before the pudding sets. Plop (too thick to pour) into pan and smooth top.

Bake for 25 minutes, it will puff and look gorgeous, but then fall and look disappointing. It will stay about 1 inch thick and have the texture of angel food cake. I like to top with WF strawberry syrup.

Makes 1 ENORMOUS serving. Yum. Yum.
this sound amazing going to try it soon.

It tasted a little better mixed in with my leek soup packet, even though it was raw. But mushrooms are on the list, and I typically saute them with olive oil spray, sea salt, poultry seasoning, and apple cider vinegar. Because 4 cups raw veggies a day is a bit much to get used to, and I like warm meals!
Hi lcm! I dice red and green peppers small and saute them with the mushrooms and fresh garlic, s & p. Then I put that into the soups. It's great in the leek soup, the chicken soup, and even in the broc cheese soup (without the mushrooms). Warm meals are good. They really fill you up.

Welcome! I think one of the keys is to be willing to try things you haven't before. I had never had turnips and they have become a new favorite. Also, raw beggies with a dressing made from EVOO, vinegar and splenda gives them a refreshing twist. I think I eat 2 cauliflower heads a week this way. Also, given a little time, your tastes will change. Hang in there....it's a wonderful program and works if you stick to it.

Ugh no. So I kinda cheated. It wasn't like a carb binge or anything but I definitely ate more than I should have this weekend. I had cheese, a lot of egg whites, some butter and the worst is a pretty big amount of almonds. For some reason I thought they were a lot lower in carbs but now I realize today was terrible. The old me just got out there for a moment and I could not stop eating, like literally, I couldn't, I probably had over a cup of shaved almonds of more, which is like 30 carbs AND I had a 4th packet. I barely had any meat though, just a few pieces of fish and I didn't have veggies at all today. What a mess. I think I'm still under 100g of carbs today, at least, which I think might not make me gain, or at least not much.

I'm not going to weigh in tomorrow because I know it'll only make things worse since it'll kill me if I gained. I'll wait until next Monday and this week I'm being completely 100% OP, no excuses. I need to be at 118 by next Monday and if I'm strict enough I can do it.

Please don't judge me, I know I shouldn't have done this and it's killing me. But I need to move forward and keep a positive attitude or I won't lose the rest of this weight.



At least I restrained myself since usually when I cheat on a diet, I end up saying, "ugh whatever I'll just ruin the rest of the day and start fresh tomorrow" and this time while I did eat badly, I could be eating the rest of what's in the kitchen right now, as it usually would be. I'd be eating bread, cookies, pasta, etc and I'm not even considering it. The idea is scary to me.
