Start now. Why wait. That's my advice.
You can do this!!!
1. Read the stickies and print out the Phase 1 (P1) sheet.
2. Read the threads on alternatives. I'm doing it now and it works just as fine as using real IP product.
3. Rid your home of tempting foods.
4. Get prepared...buy the vitamins / supplements needed. The "real salt" and packets of protein foods to be ready to hit the ground running.
Being prepared is the key to success for most IP (or any dieting) person.
My go to has been a spinach chocolate mint smoothie. 2 cups of spinach blended in my magic bullet (others use the ninja). The ninja got better reviews on here, but I found my bullet, brand new for $5.00 at a tag sale...
Start reading the posts on here...Not the daily stuff but 1. what I wish my coach had told me, 2. stuff on alternatives, etc. There's so much info on here!
You'll do great!!!!!!!!!!!!
