I have a few questions for anyone who can help me understand. I am a bit confused as far as a few things go.

1. Why is it that on IP we are not able to have more fat? I didn't think that fat could take you out of ketosis. My understanding is that being in ketosis is what burns fat so quickly while on IP. Am I mistaken? I realized today that I accidentally used too much oil and was a bit upset, but then wondered if it would truly hinder my loss.

2. I'm confused about the sugar.....many of the foods have grams of sugar on the nutritional label, but no sugar in the ingredients list (only sweeteners). Being that these items DO have grams of sugar, how does that affect the body different than an item with the same amount of sugars, but where the ingredient list says sugar? I know the IP plan is clear about staying away from sugar, but I keep getting confused when the food labels have sugar grams.

Thanks for helping me understand!

I'm SO happy it's Friday. I'm also thrilled tomorrow marks my first week on this journey! It hasn't been bad at all and, surprisingly, I haven't had any intense cravings. My weight has been stuck at the same place for 4 days now though and it's been a little frustrating. However, I did lose almost 8 pounds the first 3 days, so I will still have a good loss for the first week even if I don't lose tomorrow.

I got my Nashua order in last night and here are my current reviews:


Question about the oatmeal and pancakes (protidiet versions) - when I look at the stats, they both appear to be unrestricted. However, the IP instructional sheet says that all oatmeals and pancakes are restricted. Which should I go by? Thanks!
1. IP is a PSMF diet so it is low carb, low calorie, low fat. Many low carb diets don't limit fats as much. You are correct that fat won't kick us out of ketosis. The quick weight loss is due to the low EVERYTHING. Being in ketosis isn't necessarily what burns the fat. It sure helps with appetite suppression, tho! Dr T's first book had 1 Tbsp of oil, so don't get too upset over the initial overuse.

2. There are naturally occurring sugars and added sugars. We don't want any sugar on the ingredients list (added sugar), however veggies will have naturally occurring sugars, which appear as sugar grams on the nutritional label. You can ignore the "sugars" on the label, just make sure you read carbs & ingredients (to find/avoid added sugar).

3. IP Oatmeal is restricted. Off-brand labels may be different due to varying ingredients. For example, the ProtiDiet maple oatmeal is unrestricted, altho the IP version is restricted.

When I feel like I need something sweet I will make the protdiet oatmeal into muffins, I will have this with a cup of coffee and that satisfies me. This is non restricted. It feels good to be in control even if it is temporary. When I fall off the IP wagon my eating gets out of control. IP gives me the confidence that I am in control. It is a nice feeling.

Good morning:

I think I am going to have to try the Protidiet oatmeal. Right now I buy everything at my clinic but I love oatmeal and am bummed that IP's is restricted.

Today was weigh in day for week 21 for me. I've had one of those "blue" feeling weeks...tom, sick, yucky weather, work was annoying...and really wasn't expecting a good weigh in. To my surprise - tho sometimes I do wonder about their scale - I'm down another 1.8. Nice inches lost this week too. Yay!

Even though I'm past the original goal I/clinic had set, bmi still isn't in the normal range and I'm not in range for most of the online weight calculators. All of these things have variance of course...but I'm also not in the size I'd expect. It's odd...when first on IP, sizes dropped quicker than weight and now I feel like at this weight, my sizes should be smaller? Anyway... I think i will stay phase 1 for a couple more weeks and see what happens. But I'm starting to feel ready to move forward into the phases.

I think I'm going to treat myself with a movie - gotta watch the good ones before the oscars

Happy weekend! And may you find your IP POWER!

PS Congrats Susie and IPN on the skinny jeans!

Things are going well, not so well that I am ready to go and buy jeans, yet, but fine. I have not worn jeans in over 20 years because all of my weight is centered below my waist and I look really weird in them. Can't wait to get to a weight where I have a more normal profile - the gym workouts should help.

I am one pound away from the 50 pound mark so I am being very careful, trying to make sure I hit the mark. I have yet to decide what I am going to do to celebrate.

GO SEAHAWKS

I'm right there with you at the 1lb away from 50, I haven't clue what to do to celebrate either. Maybe a massage.

WHO DAT! Geaux Saints!

50 pounds is an amazing accomplishment! Feels so far away but every time I hear someone has hit that mark, it gives me more hope!

This is my 2nd week in with my official weigh in tomorrow. My husband has joined me and we both stayed on track this week which feels really good. Looking forward to more experimenting with veggies this weekend.

50 pound mark is a celebration !!
I suggest new spanx first and for sure..... (and you probably need some other new underwear by now). Your clothes WILL look nicer....the progress WILL show...and then go try on jeans and some new clothes...even if you are just window shopping on the clothing! (Don't forget the resale shops!!!)

YEA for both of you!!!

Lol yes new spanx! And undies. I just spent $180 on bras and undies at VS after Xmas. I went from a 40DD to a 38 C. Gosh I hope the girls don't get much smaller! So let me ask ya'll a question I have 7 VS bras that are in great condition, I don't want to throw them away, do thrift stores take them? Would anyone here like them? I can take pics and email them to anyone interested. I'd just hate to throw away $30-50 bras. I bought the and ended up only wore one mostly every day. Shame huh

Good morning everyone. I got up and did some weight lifting and then hit the pool for a swim. Then hit the Kohls clearance racks. I am solidly in a size 6 now and my 8 jeans are riding low on the hips. I have laundry to do so I am going to work on that and do another sort of clothes. I think a Good Will trip is in order.

A swimming friend has been doing weight watchers since last summer and we are about the same age, same height and within a couple of pounds. I was leaving the pool and she was coming and our reaction was the same to each other....skinny you!!! So funny. She looks great.
