Congrats on coming back to IP and on your weight loss! Your question is a good one...I don't have a coach right now but I worked with my coach and got to my goal weight.

My coach advised me to not cheat AT ALL because it is mentally exhausting to resist committing to the diet...and defeats the point of fully relaxing into the program...it is so much work to get into ketosis...no, cheating a tiny bit won't kick you completely out but it will lower your ketosis levels and will definitely slow your weight loss and your coach knows that this can make everything harder.

My coach told me that I could add more olive oil and coconut oil...she told me that fat doesn't make us fat and this made me enjoy the diet a LOT more because roasted veggies were tastier and salads were better too. The way to feel like you are indulging is to start using IP recipes and have fun with them...when you let yourself enjoy IP others will think you are a superstar and you will lose lose lose!

May I ask you guys about your coaches? Have you ever talked to them about when you mess up a bit? I have always been all or nothing...if I eat 1 chip I figure why not eat the rest of the bag since I already messed up. Then for the next meal why not have a pizza. I am trying really hard to stop doing this. Yesterday I talked to my coach about it and she said "1 Bite, Lick, or Taste kicks you out of Ketosis for 3 days" Is this true??

One BLT won't take you out of ketosis but it sets up behavior to do more damage (I had a bite, so I might as well eat it all. Then, I ate all that so I might as well have more today). Refraining from the BLTs builds the willpower muscle we all need to stay OP.

Your coach is right. Fat isn't what makes us fat (unless it is mixed with carbs...then it is horrible! "They" have lied to us for decades about the horrors of fat when it was the carbs the whole time - or the fat/carb combo). Dr Tein's first book had fat measured in Tablespoons, not teaspoons.
You are absolutely right about the recipes. I KNOW I wouldn't have had success without them!

The plexus itself isnt a meal replacement. It helps regulate your blood sugars. The same doctor that recommended me to do IP is the one that suggested I try Plexus with it. It regulates blood sugars. The company makes a shake too though that has 15 gms of protein in it and both are IP friendly

stayed the same this week, but I know why, stress and PMS
OMG it was bad.
No cheating for me so I know next week should be a great WI. Atleast I really hope so. I lost .4 at my coach's scale but not going to change my ticker as I go by my scale.
Here is to another successful week!!

That's right sunflower. Stay the course it'll all be worth it in the end. And remember, as long as the scale is going down you're going in the right direction! Have a great night!

Good morning. For some reason yesterday with the cold and snow I wanted to blow my diet and eat junk. I am proud to say I managed to ignore all my cravings and stayed 100% on plan. I feel so much better today for that decision. For me it is being stuck inside. I keep thinking of all the cute spring clothes I will be able to wear if I stick to the plan.
