Wuv posted something last week about a revision to the phase I sheet. It said that 8 oz of meat were not required in the evening meal, it could be as little as 6 oz. For about 5 days now, I've intentionally not eaten all the protein on my plate at dinner. I'm not measuring how much I don't eat, but I would guess it's about 1-2 oz.
Congrats on the boots, I am hoping I can one day rock the jeans under boots look.
I must have missed the sheet revision and I tried searching for the link do you remember where this was said.

LOVE MY Wii fit. living in a small town it is perfect to get those little work outs in. You look great by the way!! Please keep us informed about how adding the exercise is working for you

I guess its easier for me to focus on the weight right now than the surgery
Good luck with your surgery

I needed the emotional peace of mind that this has allowed me, but it was really nice to see the loss this morning, especially after the huge gain last week!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful day!
Happy for your 2lb loss but happier you are feeling better. It is better you are focusing on you during this stressful time

A word of advice? Toss your ketostix in the trash, they don't actually tell you anything useful. If you show ANY ketones, trace or otherwise, you're fine - if you are drinking plenty of water they are going to be diluted and barely show up on the stix if at all. ESPECIALLY if the results of the sticks are going to change your mood, that's an indicator that you'd have a tough time disconnecting emotions from the results - and you don't need that kind of unnecessary stress.

Toss 'em in the trash, and be CONFIDENT in the fact that you are following the program, and it works!

I want to say that it's somewhere in the 20-40 net carbs per day - BUT IP is NOT a carb counting program. If you follow the sheet, it works. No counting necessary.

Happy 12-12-12! I did get on the scale and I am up 2 pounds but I have started running again so I think I need to wait a bit and monitor before I get too concerned. I am also not getting my water in like I should. I have had math trainings and presentations so I didn't want to be leaving the room to pee all the time!

I track everything I eat each day in My Fitness Pal (available online and as smartphone app), and it calculates total calories, carbs, protein, fats, etc. for each day. On average, I am consuming about 30 g of carb per day. My typical daily calorie intake is 800, and about 60% of those calories come from protein and 20% each from carbs and fat.

Important to note--I don't track in my fitness pal in order to monitor and control the amount of carbs, protein, etc I'm eating. I do it as it keeps me aware and accountable of my food choices and helps me to make better decisions. I plan to continue to use this app after I am done with IP, as I think it will help me to maintain and avoid regaining the weight.

Just popping in. I can't afford IP anymore and went downhill for a few weeks, so here I am! I am back on track eating healthier and last night 5 lbs whooshed away (probably water weight). But I'll take it! I'm just trying to skip the bad carbs and eat meat, low fat dairy, and veggies. Had horrific migraines last night.

Today is better! I packed myself some crockpot pot roast and mashed cauliflower for work. For breakfast I had a Pure Protein bar. Just happy to be feeling good again, those carbs are killers! I don't want the cravings anymore!

I think it was not an actual phase 1 revision, just additional info sent to coaches

Updated 8/20/12 : What is meant is they can have UP TO 4 whole eggs and 2 whites IF THEY WISH. Look, they can have up 8 oz of meat, but if they only want 6 oz, that's their choice. 1 whole extra large egg (56 g) has 70 cal, 7g Protein, 0 carbs and 4.5g fat.

As I am not using IP products I have found that keeping tracks of carbs is a big help since my choices are different when it comes to meals etc. Limit calories to lose weight, limit carbs to encourage Ketosis.
