1) Last week when I started the office gives u a sampler pack to try stuff. I am down to drink mixes-and I HATE them. I dont like any of them. I am at the point that for breakfast this am I want to eat 2 eggs instead of a drink packet. Do u think that would be ok? Is there any other recommendations? I will get new food that I like tom. on Monday. Any advise would be great. I just dont like drinking my meals. I rather eat them.
2) Also is there a website or post about maybe doing an exchange of packets you dont like or use with others? So far have not found that.
3)Can you eat NY strip steak for your 8 ozs? I thought that was sirloin but I think I am wrong.
4)To be clear you can have your restricted item for your snack after dinner right?
Thanks in advance!!! It is appreciated
#1 - turn them into muffins or pancakes or trade them in for something you like. The vanilla drink, chocolate drink and wildberry yogurt all bake up into muffin/pancake replacements.
#2 - you should be able to do this in your clinic. otherwise, i think some people on IP near you might be able to help with this.
#3 - NY Strip is a little too fatty for your meat - filet mignon is the perfect amount of fat for red meat on IP. Of course we can't all afford that. I'd limit how often you have steak and stick to more fish, chicken and lower fat red meat if possible. Its nice to have a steak for a treat once in a while anyway.
#4 - well, every coach is different. You have to have a snack after dinner and before bed - definitely. However, at my clinic anyway, you need to have your restricted before dinner. In fact, may clinics don't allow you to have restricteds at all in your first two weeks.
Hang in there!
