The videos I receive every morning and the accountability of weighing in with someone has been very helpful for me.

Any comments on the 5 packages? Looking at the what are you eating thread, I'm still only seeing three packs. Are they trying to make more money?
I use ProtDiet all the time and they have some of my FAVORITE alternative products. I just went to Nashua Nutrition website and looked at six random products, all of which had 15 g of protein... Exactly what is IP compatible! All of them also were priced at $11.99-12.99 per box of 7 (uS dollars).

I would say they are an EXCELLENT alternative choice for direct IP replacements packet for packet!!! (Always look at nutrition stats for each product, as not ALL products meet the IP standards!)

There are a number of wafer items available for several of the main alternative products a lot of us use (ProtiDiet, Proti Thin, Weightloss Systems, HealthSmart.)

Check Nashua Nutrition site which offers all these brands. Make sure you are armed with the nutrition statistics for IP compatible acceptable alternatives and check each item you are considering.

Unfortunately no. Atkins is a much higher fat plan than IP. Atkins shakes are above 30% fat.

EAS carb control work, however.

I think I am finally getting a handle on the fat gram guidelines. For the longest time, I thought the GRAMS were supposed to be less than 30%. The way I now understand it, you multiply fat grams by 9 to get approximate “Calories from fat??” (I googled to get that explanation.)

So, for the Atkins shake question, the fat grams were 9 and the calories were 160. 9 times 9 would equal 81 and 81 is more than 30% of the total calories of 160.

Am I calculating that correctly?

Yes, that's how I understand it.

good evening all

well I sent my coach an email and told him that I was going to continue following Ideal Protein protocol but that I've decided to use alternative products - I feel that it's just too expensive - I started over the weekend to incorporate some other products and so far no problem - I can do this - what I will start doing is weighing in at Weight Watchers on saturday morning - I'm lifetime member with them - that will keep
me accountable

The easiest way to calculate that is by taking the "Calories from fat" or "Fat calories" amount that is listed on the nutrition label (typically listed under the "Calories" amount) and multiplying that number by 3 - if it's lower than the total calories, you're good to go

For example:

Atkins Chocolate Shake: There are 160 total calories, and 81 calories from fat. Multiply 81 x 3, and you get 243, which is a lot more than 160. So this item does not fit the IP protocol.

I hope this helps!

There is SO much info about alt products and I'm looking but maybe one of you can point me to it. I feel like a needle in a haystack.

Are there any unrestricted bars out there? Or are they all pretty much restricted?

they're all pretty much restricted.
Some people count the lower calorie quest bars (Chocolate peanut butter or Strawberry cheesecake) as unrestricted. Other people find Quest bars stall them. For this reason, I've always counted them as restricted.

Ok, I need some advice. I am trying to come up with a substitute for the IP Omelet packets. I cannot have them because of my food allergies. How does this sound?

I mixed together 3/4 C generic Egg Beaters, 1 T real precooked bacon pieces, and a dash each of dried chives, sea salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Kernel Season's Cheddar powder. I cooked it for two minutes in the microwave, in a bowl lightly spritzed with Pam spray. It was incredible! So yummy, and it kept me full for hours!

Nutritionals were as close to IP as I could manage. My omelet had 107 cal, 2g fat, 3g carbs, and 18g protein. IP Omelet has 110 cal, 3g fat, 3g carbs, and 18g protein.

Do you think that this is a reasonable substitute? Thanks in advance!
