I looked through Ebay and found these cereal may be Slimwise cereal for $10 a box.
It will have the Ideal Protein name & logo on each individual silver packet

Interestingly not all of them do have the IP name and logo... I checked some packets I have that were in the IP box and they did not. They did gave some info in French (from Canada production I assume).

I just got the Nashua Nutrition newsletter and wanted to share promo codes with you all....I just placed my order and was able to use both in conjunction with one another. All Proti-Thin Brand products 10% off with code PT10
$5.00 off your entire order, regardless of brand when you use code FEB5, limite 1 per customer.

Thanks, Johnsdeere. I've never ordered with them but have been thinking of it. This will be my motivation to try!

murphypuppy,
I order mine from Luckyvitamin after someone else on here reccomended the alternatives.
http://www.luckyvitamin.com/p-202501...s-120-softgels

http://www.luckyvitamin.com/p-3372-n...arian-capsules

For my husband: http://www.luckyvitamin.com/p-75903-...n-120-capsules

For me: http://www.luckyvitamin.com/p-75906-...n-120-capsules

http://www.luckyvitamin.com/p-167060...l-120-softgels

Pay attention to the quantity you require, the multi vitamins for example you take 4 times a day. I bought us both pill boxes from walmart that have a morning, noon, night, bedtime slot to keep track of everything.

Also I need to recomend taking biotin for hair, alot of people notice hair loss due to the low caloric intake of Ideal protein, I figure that it never hurts to prevent hair loss, for men AND women.

Nashua Nutrition FYI

If you plan on ordering regularly, they have a Lifetime Membership that gives you 10% off always (and you can still get the additional discounts and promos on top.). The cost is $30 (maybe $29.99)

It is not advertised. When you order, in the comment section ask to join the Lifetime Membership with this order. NOTHING will show up right then as you place the order. Soon after you will get an email from them with the membership added and then the 10% taken off the whole order - even the membership fee.

Every time after that when you sign in, a message will pop up at the top of the page to remind d you your membership is in effect!!

What do you mean by WF portion restriction? Thanks.

As far as I have seen reading many alternative product posts and looking at many products on Nashua, I have not seen any chips or bars that are truly non-restricted (two Quest bars are on the boarder, but usually used as restricteds by most). There may be one or two soy snacks unrestricted (not true chips). This is why everyone is so excited that IP has the three new chip products! I use almost no IP anymore but am buying the chips for their unrestricted status!

Thank you JLUS. I am thinking of ordering the following:
proti-thin chili and lime soy
proti-thin zippers (BBQ and SC and herbs)
proti-diet cereal honey nut soy
proti-diet white cheddar crisps

My understanding is that all are unrestricted with the exception of the proti-thin zippers

I wouldn't call any of the chips or bars unrestricted.
The ProtiDIET oatmeal is, however, and worked great to make into my zucchini muffins or pancakes

Honey nut soy cereal - unrestricted
The white cheddar has 8 g carbs -restricted
Chili-lime 8 carbs. restricted
The zippers are on the fence.

I've learned anything on the fence should be restricted. Adding too many extras slows weight loss. Trying to "fudge it" or hack the program doesn't really work longterm. Of course, there will always be a success story or two proving otherwise.
