This is what I believed was correct:

8 or less net carbs = unrestricted
9 or more net carbs = restricted

I just want to make sure I'm counting something as restricted if it actually is
Yup! You are correct! Thanks for catching that. I will change it and re-post. Luckily it was an ere on the side of caution!

No problem! And I'm glad I was right, because it allows more products! This is a very helpful list, thanks!

Default Will this work as an alternative?

Hello, I have spent many days reading the forums and threads on here and I hope I was able to learn something. Would someone please confirm if the protein drink that I have gotten meets the phase 1 for unrestricted use?

Calories:130 Calories from fat: 20, Total carbs: 8g with fiber at: 3g, Protein: 20g.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

I finally found a WF product that I didn't mind...it was the pasta sauce http://www.vitacost.com/walden-farms...32-342589760-2
. I've been using my proti-thin fusila pasta, sautaing a total of two cups of yellow squash, zucchini, and mushrooms and then adding the sauce to it all. I add italian seasoning and garlic powder. I'm really happy with it.

Has anyone had the proti-diet natural pancakes? Would you recommend them? I like that they are unrestricted, reviews are good as well on nashua. I'm in the process of placing a order hence the question.

I haven't heard of proti diet natural pancakes but I have ordered the plain and I quite liked them. I added 1 egg white that I beat until frothy and a tsp of baking powder and they were yummy. I used WF syrup.

I might have to try it then, so far I've hated ALL the WF products in fact I have many unopened in my cupboard because I bought when they were 2 for 1... YUCK maybe I will try the pasta sauce!

does Nashua deliver to Canada? I've been ordering from Low Carb Foods - they're based in Canada and I've ordered 3 times and the delivery is fantastic - next day or second day - and the prices seem reasonable.

I've never tried the pancake batter as a waffle. I got hooked on the Weight Loss Systems cheesecake pudding as a waffle and stopped experimenting. I use the pancake mix to make English muffins.

I just tried the mint chocolate shake from the protein store (one of the free trial packets I got) it's YUMMY... has .5 more fat, more sodium, 2 less carbs, same sugar as a chocolate shake packet from IP. Numbers look good, the ingredients list is longer though, lot's of long names of things and it has corn syrup, but I guess that's the sugar... I guess that's the part that scares me about moving to alternatives. I know the IP stuff works, and ya it says sugar right on the ingredients list, but I know they are doing the right thing. Some of the alternatives have different kinds of sugars I am so nervous about this switch lol

Just remember that MANY of us have been very successful using alternative products that match the IP nutrition stats. It's definitely good that you are reading the labels and considering ingredients, but if you look at the ingredients in the IP products, there are a lot of "unpronounceables" in there too!

Definitely be on the lookout for Aspartame!

Also, I know you are trying to watch your $$, so I encourage you to also look at Nashua Nutrition site, which have drinks/puddings running about $12 per box and as I mentioned before, I recognize TONS of items from the Protein Store as being the exact products on Nashua, though for some reason, the Protein Store chooses not to name the actual brand of each item. (Some of the main brands you will see other IPers use from there are: ProtiDiet, Proti-Thin, HealthSmart, Weight Loss Systems.) In addition to Nashua, I know people buy from a few other stores that have similar pricing. It's just a few dollars difference 12 vs 19, but what you save might mean more clothes in your NEW size!!

Have fun and relax!

Please, please tell me how you make waffles with the cheesecake pudding! I have some and would love to try it!

Pegeye: there is no restriction on the amount of sugar in an alternative product. Simply follow the guidelines for the net carbs. Up to 8g net carbs is considered unrestricted, higher is considered restricted. As a rule I think you should not go over 17g net carbs. Also, watch for aspartame. No aspartame! That is one of the easiest things to forget when you are looking at the calories, carbs, protein, etc... As long as you follow the guidelines you don't need to look at the sugar grams.
