Welcome Ruby! I'm a little jealous that you are in a warmer climate. This winter has been BRUTAL!

HI Everyone, I've been lurking for a few days now and thought I should finally join as you all have a wealth of knowledge regarding alternative products. I did Ideal protein through my gym last year and lost 40 lbs, I stopped following it last fall, and now I need to restart as I can feel the pounds creeping back on. I can no longer afford to buy the food through my gym as its crazy expensive. I'm sure I will have a ton of questions for you all. I need to loose 20 pounds to feel comfortable in my skin again.

11 boxes of proti diet, $16/box + taxes =$202 (shipping was free because I ordered 11 boxes)

Much cheaper than ideal protein!!!

I will be trying the pancakes tomorrow for breakfast

wow, that is a great deal! Are the pancakes considered a restricted item?

also, did you just email Nourish studios what you wanted to order as I see they don't have anything listed on their website?

In response to your question, I initially sent an email with a list of my desired Proti Diet items and Debbie wrote me back as follows...she is super nice and my order came really quickly!
See email below for all info.


Hi Jasmine,

Thanks for your response and letting me know that you are not currently with another ProtiDiet clinic.

We only carry a portion of the products you are currently requesting so I thought it best to provide you with our pricing and shipping costs as well as the list of products we currently carry. Possibly you would be interested in ordering some of products even though we do not have all of the products you desire.

If you are using these foods to continue on with your weight loss efforts, we recommend that you supplement appropriately and continue to be monitored by a local weight loss coach and/or your family physician.

Pricing and shipping would be as follows -- 1 - 4 boxes (each box contains 7 servings) would be $18 per box plus $ 12.00 for shipping. 5 - 10 boxes would be $16 per box and the cost of shipping would be $5.00. More than 10 boxes would be $16 each and shipping would be free. Taxes are extra.

For initial orders only, we would be able to put together 1-2 mixed boxes for you to be able to try a variety of products/flavours if this is of interest to you.

Payment of your order can be made by using Paypal or via credit card received by telephone.

Following are the products we currently carry:

Soy Nuts
Hot Cocoa
Chili Lime soy nuts
Chocolate Shake
Vanilla Shake
Grape Drink
BBQ Crisps (in stock next week)

I forgot to mention if your looking for nutritional info just go to the proti diet website and you will be able to find all the nutritional values for the proti diet products. http://www.protidietfood.com/

As for the pancakes, they have 6g of net carbs so not restricted!

Demi, you live in cornwall...I am sure you can find even cheaper alternatives in the US!. I looked at nashua nutrition, they have great alternatives but the shipping is like $50 bucks! Still cheaper than IP though

Hi Runner.... nice to hear from you. Do you go to a clinic in Regina? I am returning to Canada Apr 17 and just wondering how I'm going to do this.

Ruby - I went to a clinic in the East end but due to my budget, didn't feel that I could join the program. My friend in Toronto is doing IP and so I follow basically the same program, but using alternative products. It is difficult to know how I'm really doing (I have lost 8lbs and 7" since Feb 3) and I definately would love to have a coach to help me through this journey. I'm struggling with Post meno/HRT/thyroid issues so the weight is very SLoooooW in coming off. Plus, I'm bored with this now.... any suggestions?!

Runner,,,,,, I tried IP 2 years ago (well that's an over statement) I went to a small center to a pharmacy and signed up. The coach was useless and I lasted one week and was very discouraged. 2 weeks ago I reached desperation and I was looking for something and came across 3fatchicks. I am doing it on my own with this forum as my coach. I use a combination of IP and alternatives cause at a clinic here in Arizona I can buy the products.
I also have post meno and thyroid issues but reading these forums I see it IS possible and lots of people are successful. Maybe we can get together when I return and share some ideas. My name is Ruth

Hello fellow Canadians! I'm in the middle of my 3rd week on IP and I'm considering incorporating a few alternative products just to help cut down on some of the costs although I'd like most of my food to come from IP at this point. I see the post about nourish studios which is very helpful... are there other places people have bought some alternatives online that are located in Canada?

Hi Proudmama...I have to say that EvePet was the member who I got a lot of my alternative info from. She has a blog at www.diettalktoday.com where she breaks down IP alternatives according to food "type" on the right hand column of her page, and where she bought the items.

My favourites have been
- ChocoLite shakes from www.lowcarbgrocery.com
- Smaps cereal from www.lowcarbgrocery.com (with a little bit of the ChocoLite French Vanilla shake watered down as milk)
- New Hope Mills Pancake Mix from www.lowcarbgrocery.com (but when I add the eggs and water and oil, I do it differently than the box suggests)
- Simply Chips from www.well.ca
and last but not least my all time favourites......
- Quest bars from www.lowcarbgrocery.com, www.vitamart.ca and just discovered a sale at www.canadianprotein.com (havent ordered from them yet)

I seriously want to eat Quest bars for all 3 meals...but many are considered restricted. The Strawberry Cheesecake and Peanut Butter Chocolate are on the borderline and I'm considering testing the waters to see if I actually could eat just 2 a day of those. They are SO satisfying to the palette and to the appetite/hunger monster.

Thank you very much Sheriously, that's a wealth of info! I haven't come across that blog yet so I will spend my free time today going through it. I appreciate you taking the time to respond to me - thank you!

Hello fellow Canadians!!
I am a newbie to IP and this site. Live in Ontario. I started IP 5 days ago and am really glad I found this site!! What a wealth of information! So much to take in! After reading this thread I think I may try replacing a few alternatives for IP after I've been on the program a few weeks. The cost is a bit much but if the results are good it is worth it. Although, if I can have the results and save money, all the better!! :-)
