My problem is that IM STARVING from 7am-3pm!! Is it ok to eat a few eggs whites in between then?? How many am I allowed to have before I have to "borrow" from my protein at meal time?? Like is 2-3 egg whites ok?? I try to fill up on water to the point where I am drinking 16oz every hour-hour and a half and its just not cutting it anymore. I've debated on adding another IP pack to my day because I am also jogging 30 mins every morning but the last time I did that I stopped losing weight.

Any advice??
The daily is a fine place to ask!

If you're having breakfast at 7, where is lunch?
If a meal is at 3
And one is at 6-6:30
You still get one more packet somewhere in there. Are you having it later?

You could absolutely add 2 egg whites (they are 0/0/0). If you search for the cauliflower pancake thread, you could make those. It would count as some of your veggies.


AND you are jogging. You should be adding a packet after jogging (try using the blue/cran/pom or raspberry jello or one of the 80 calorie drink packets). You said you quit losing when adding a packet. For how long? Exercise can also cause stalls.

Thanks for responding Lisa,

I have been having the Chocolate drink mix for breakfast, My lunch packet for supper (6-630) and my supper at 3 if that makes sense. I am getting in my 2 packets and a big meal per day but where we don't eat "lunch" till 3 I have a huge span form 7-3 with no meal. I don't really want to add another packet if I could eat egg whites or add more meat to my day. I have done a few low cal diets before and I have noticed I quit losing weight if I go over 900-1000 calories a day and right now just eating the 2 packets and 1 meal a day routine has been working for me (even with jogging) Im afraid if I add another packet I will stop loosing. The last time I did IP was from April-June of this year and I started jogging in May so I was told to add another packet and my weight stalled for 2 weeks. Once I cut out that extra packet it started back up again. Coincidence or ???

You know IP is THREE packets/day and a meal, right?
Even when i add an extra packet for exercise (a fourth), if I keep the cals low enough on all the packets, I don't go over 900-950.

You are missing a packet. IP (without exercise) is 3 packets per day, plus a protein/meat meal. Have your third packet with some veggies somewhere between 7 and 3.

Hi All,

So to continue from my post yesterday, the first bad meat choice I made was sasuages - I know, i should have known that one lol.. then I went to Walmart and bought the packages of cut of precooked chicken and bought the flavoured teriaki (sp) chicken and coach said I couldn't have that becasue of sugar? It was great when I was in a hurry and just added to some veggies.. then the last "mistake" was poin loin chops.. no bones and seemed very lean..

And FYI - today my headache is gone and I feel I could run a marathon, well not really, and the keto sticks are finally showing "a trace" as of this moring.. SO today is day 7 for me and looks like I am over the hump..thanks for all of the support, I can see this forum and all of you will be much more helpful than my coach..

Also - question I notice I changed my weight in my signature but my exercise girl in my tracker didn't move? Is there something I need to do there?

You gotta go back and change your weight in the tracker set up as well.

The restricted is one of the 3 packets.
Sometimes I don't have a restricted but I always have 3 packets.
Today I'm having 4 due to 120 minutes of exercise.
My planned food is 943 calories.

My coach said to have the restricted item in the morning or lunch, not with dinner or evening snack - she said they tend to stick with you longer. Has anyone else heard this? I'd really like to save my restricted for evening snack, but don't want it to affect losses.

I have my restricted in the evening no issues. My coach even mentioned enjoying the choc chip cookie in bed, so that he wasn't as hungry first thing in the am.

It's hard not to compare who lose more each week, even knowing rationally that it's pointless because everyone is different. I have a history of very slow weight loss and am just hoping that doesn't carry over into my IP journey as well. Coach suggested reducing olive oil to 1tsp instead of 2 per day, so I will try it and see what happens next week.
Hi! Don't get discouraged! Today was my 2nd weigh in as well and I was also down 2lbs - We can do this!

BTW, does anyone else feel like they have a "dealer" more than they actually have a "coach"? My coach is the only one around for 100 miles, so I don't have a choice, but y'all are so much more informative than he is. At my second weigh in he didn't even attempt to measure me - I was in a hurry (which he didn't know) so I didn't say anything but it left me feeling... like a customer.

Oh well DH and I do a measure anyway so I guess that will be the "official" numbers I use!
