Oh really, I was told it was fine as long as I do two unrestricted packets. I do it about 3 days a week and have been doing IP for 6 weeks. Another reason is i have a hard time consuming that much meat. Now that the rotini is available I've been doing that for dinner with 4 oz of meat plus veggies. What are your thoughts on that? I'll definitely recheck with my coach- thanks for your input!!

Here's the "raw" facts

2 IP packets - 30-36g protein (depending on what you choose)
8oz chicken breast - 53g protein
8oz lean ground beef - 48g protein
8 oz pork loin - 51g protein
8 oz skinless turkey breast - 51g protein

4oz is not the correct amount of protein for your meal, although there's absolutely nothing wrong with splitting your protein between meals instead of trying to have it all in one sitting. What you eat in terms of getting in everything that's on your sheet matters a ton more than when you eat it. Has your coach been following the most recently updated IP sheet (from June 2012)? You can find a copy of it here:

That's great that you have such confidence in your coach - but if she has you eating 4oz protein at dinner she isn't following the protocol. Not trying to be confrontational about it, as it's also important that you get along with your coach - but the protocol is written as it is for good reason, and unfortunately many coaches make changes without actually understanding the science behind it.

It was delicious! Even my husband ate it I modified a recipe someone else had posted here:

Bean Sprout Chicken Chow Mein
Serves 3

1 Tbsp olive or sesame oil
24 ounces of chicken breast or thighs, cut to bite size pieces
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup celery chopped into large bite size pieces
3 garlic cloves, crushed
˝ cup fat free chicken broth (or homemade)
3 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce or Bragg’s aminos
˝ tsp ground ginger
3 cups Bean Sprouts
Dash red pepper flakes (optional)
Chopped green onion for garnish

Slightly heat olive oil pan and add chicken; cook for about 5-7 minutes, stirring to cook evenly.
Add onion and cook for 2-3 minutes, until softened. Add celery and garlic and cook until tender crisp, 3-5 minutes.
Add chicken broth, soy sauce/aminos, ginger, and red pepper flakes (if you want), bring to a simmer. Turn heat down and let simmer about 5 minutes, until the liquid has reduced by about half.
Turn heat up to a boil, and add bean sprouts. Cook for about 1-2 minutes or until the sprouts are warmed and have softened.
Serve hot, garnish with chopped green onion.
