I think you're right on there...our bodies are saying WTF?! LOL. I find myself drinking more hot tea and water, it's helping a LITTLE, but my body is still wanting more. ugh. If you find anything that works for you, please PM me and let me know what it is..I'll do the same!

Cool Day #1 on IP.

Happy April Fools Day! I hope everyone had a nice Easter.
Well, today is day one on the last diet I will ever need! So far so good. I had my coffee today with one stevia packet and a little of the RTD vanilla for my creamer per suggested by my coach and the crispy cereal. Not a fan of the cereal but am open to suggestions. Drank 30 oz of H2O, which is huge for me. Snacked on celery and dill pickles to handle my munchy attacks. I just made the veggie chili with a few changes and OMG! . Here is what I did:
Veggie chili IP packet
1 1/2 - 2 cups H2O depends on much liquid you like in your soup.
1/2 cup red pepper chopped
1/2 cup yellow pepper chopped
1/2 cup broccoli chopped
1/2 cup cauliflower chopped
4 ozs of cooked turkey breast chopped
Some salt, paprika, chili powder, & cumin
Cook on stove top till veggies are tender.

Hope this might inspire someone else.

I make flatbread. Add about 5 tbsp of water to the puree, mix well (should be a pancake batter consistency), then cook it like a pancake. I usually sautee veggies (peppers, zucchini) in Mexican seasoning, and it's like a veggie fajita!

Sounds great, thanks! And Lisa, the zucchini muffins are in the oven!

I make it with steamed cauliflower and water and then blend it together. It is so yummy!!! I just add salt and pepper.

Is anyone in the US able to get the BBQ ridges? My Dr says they're stuck at the US border waiting on FDA approval. I'm a savory person and I'm really missing my chip fix...but I don't like dill or cheese (white cheddar crisps made me sick).

I wonder if it's possible to order them online in the US.

ETA: Has anyone tried the southwest cheese curls? Dr said they actually were more spicy than cheesy. Anything comparable taste-wise so I have an idea what they're like?

Today is my WI... down 2.8 lbs and was measured for the first time since starting (7 weeks ago). I have lost a total of 13" and it was evenly distributed.

For the coffee discussion, I tried the Vanilla drink as the creamer and it seems to clump at the bottom of my coffee, like a vanilla blop (which I throw out). Does that happen to others? what to do?

Hunger seems to become more of an issue as you lose weight and stored bodyfat. You need to embrace a little hunger and consider it fat burning time!

Working it-I often used cold coffee and mixed in vanilla pudding watered down and reheated.

I would either mix it up ahead of time and keep it in my fridge, or buy the RTD just for my coffee creamer. I can imagine the powder wouldn't mix up right if you just added a little to the coffee, plus it would be really hard to tell just how much you used!

My coach said there was a QA issue.
Sounds like something must have happened with production.

I agree. They are spicy. I can't think of a good comparison except maybe those trader joe's flavored tortilla chips. The flavor is not at all the same, but the type of spiciness feels the same to me. It's a nice flavor to me except for the spiciness. I don't enjoy that part.

However, I do like them more than the BBQ ridges which taste very cardboard-y to me.

Maybe a NSV, I went to and signed up for an account at MFP. I have a terrible track record with an online tracking site (have had no problem with keeping my food journal though.) Will try to keep it updated, even found where to change my goals, Honestly that took me an hour in itself. Believe I have the goals at 950 calories, 15% carbs, 55% protein and 30% fat. Does that seem about right? (the carbs at that % is 36 grams a day, and thought the range is roughly 20-40)

Also ended up doing some of my continuing education to keep credentials up to date but got interrupted by a bill collector saying I owe for a credit card I paid off ten years ago! I am sad, angry and depressed since that call and have no idea how to prove I paid for it other than swearing I know I did. I have since divorced and moved twice and I was able to keep very little paper work from the period before the divorce.

Not sure what your expectations are but 3lbs lost is a fantastic WI.
