So you do 4 packets on occasion too? Good to know because I felt SO guilty about having a Milk Chocolate Pudding after dinner last night.

Thanks and Congrats again!!!

Agree with Lisa. I have listened to my body on this diet and, if I am hungry, I have added a little protein - sometimes a little LEAN meat (2 egg whites or a little chicken), but more often a packet. It has kept me sane through P1 so I am glad to have it. Just make sure it is not a restricted food and, if you are logging your food on MFP or something similar, or tracking your carbs, make sure you keep your foods in lower carbs throughout the day so you don't go over your goal on carbs per day. That is how I do it, anyhow. I defer to the gurus such as Lisa.

I had no idea that at my weight I could have more. My coach has so far taken a "wait and see" approach. I do feel better having a 4th. I wonder why she didn't just put me on 4 packets from the get-go??

Thanks again to you both!!

Hi All,

Just wanted to poke in here quickly and thank everyone again for all the kind thoughts and words yesterday. I'm back on track, and am on my new day 2. I'm feeling pretty good, minus some weird seasonal allergies. But oh well.

I've been following the thread today, and saw that there are recommendations for more packets if you're heavier. I usually have 4 packets per day, and was wondering if anyone could provide some insight. I usually have one packet for breakfast (a shake or chocolate chip sweet roll, I'm using alternative products), and for lunch I have chicken noodle soup and about 1.5 cups of frozen broccoli (I'm all about convenience) as well as a bar after lunch as a "sweet treat" and am usually good until dinner. DH and I then have our protein, salad, and veggies for dinner, and sometimes after dinner I have another "sweet treat." Anyone want to guess how I got myself into this mess? LOL!

I'm open to some tips and hints, and have been combing the boards for more ideas. And have ordered myself a food journal from Amazon to help keep myself on track.

Thanks again to everyone!!

Probably lofty goals, but setting my sights HIGH!! I can do this!!

Echoing Sarita. If I am having a 4th packet, it is usually a drink.

And by the way, Congratulations, Sarita! and Welcome a board, Melissa!

WTG Jo!

Sorry to hear about your little boy. I'm glad it's not broken, but sometimes a bad sprain is worse than a break. Sending love and light for a speedy recovery!

Welcome new folks and I too defer to the recommendations of those on this site. Had my week three weigh in and down 14 pounds and 14.5 inches! This program is amazing. My co worker is a cautionary tale as she started when I did and is down five pounds...she admitted to seriously cheating and is restarting today. I gave her a hug and told her we will get through this together and recommended your site to help her. I did order some WF and sugar free proroducts from nenutrition.com Thank you for posting that gem! $4.95 flat shipping and the products are significantly less expensive than at the center.
I too get hungry but find decaf green tea at night is helping along with a good book to keep my mind occupied! I do however have to stop going to bed at 8pm..lol!Better than cheating...

What a great and incredible thing to celebrate! Congratulations. I cannot wait until I get to the same point but I have quite a while to go. Since I have not been in Onderland since before my marriage 24 years ago, it is likely you will hear me celebrate everywhere this website can be read.

Welcome to onderland! Your weight never has to start with a 2, EVER again!

I've posted this A LOT lately. It looks like more than one person has a question about this so here it is again:

Extra packets.

Most people use 3 packets (2 non-restricted, 1 restricted) per day.

In the IP clinic manual, it's listed this way:
If you weigh
201-240 pounds = 4 packets/day
241-280 pounds = 5 packets/day
281-320 pounds = 6 packets/day

Of course, still only 1 of those is restricted.

I saw a lot of "sweet treats" (cinnamon sweet roll, and x2 sweet treats) in your daily food list and I'm just wanting to make sure that only ONE of those is a restricted item. Also, based on your weight, I believe you should be eating up to 5-6 packs a day (from the info that Lisa has posted) and only ONE of those packs can be a restricted.
