I have started journaling my food to make sure I am not taking in too many calories or carbs. This is what I normally have been eating:
Morning: choc shake- Proti-diet
Mid morning- snack 1 cup cucumbers with white vinegar with dill
Lunch-Proti diet chicken noodle soup. 1-2 cups lettuce salad with mushrooms, green peppers, vinegar and 2 tsps olive oil, lemon juice
Dinner- chicken breast and 2 cups of broccoli
I drink some coffee with a little skim, but the rest is water all day.
I don't have a IP coach. I have been using the most current Phase 1 sheet. Here is my summary from yesterday:
Fat 38% carb 19% protein 43%
Any suggestions would be great!
Billy - first of all, I commend your stick-with-it attitude! Second, since I promised you that you the scale would go down today I guess I have to eat my words. (But there might be carbs in words, so I will have some crow instead.)

In addition the great suggestions others have made here, I have to ask if you are taking the recommended vitamins/supplements on the P1 sheet? You DO need a multi-vitamin (because this diet is severely lacking), calcium/magnesium (the magnesium will help you from getting constipated - speaking of which, are you having regular BMs? If you're backed up the scale can be up several pounds!), and the potassium (to prevent muscle cramps.)

I would also recommend the omega-3s as suggested on the sheet. I found on the weeks I didn't take them my losses were slower, but my evidence is purely anecdotal.

It's hard to justify all the money spent on IP products when alternatives can be purchased for less and the money can go towards fabulous summer programs (you are only a kid once)...

You will do just fine. I have lost 113 lbs so far and have never bought an IP product.

Hi all. Today is day 1 of my restart. Due to the emotional/physical stress I've been under I pretty much put the diet aside. I needed to focus on my relationship and make the steps to keep it going. Luckily I didn't gain any weight but my partner lost 20 lbs.
I need to be sure that we are eating healthy nutrient rich meals, so off to the recipes I go now.

The kids always ate somewhere for my benefit although I kept telling them I could eat anywhere since I was so prepared.
Today, I weighed and lost a pound since I left but that's better than what could have happened if I had not been prepared for the trip. I am so happy with myself and that I can successfully get to the end of this journey if I keep at it.
As a side note I was able to walk the length of the football sized field along with the crowd at a good pace. I couldn't have done that 6 months ago before losing all this weight.
Hurray for you!! You may notice another drop..travel..esp sitting in a car or a long distance flight almost always results in water weight.Some of us noticed by allowing a few more days back in your own routine things like excess water whooosh away...and you might be happily surprised at how you REALLY did!!!

I can't say enough what a great coach this website is. This weekend was terrible. I had almost 10 guests at home and I was cooking all this wonderful food which I cannot eat and I was almost in tears thinking why do I need to do this.
But I was able to control it although I felt sad but I kept telling, I can enjoy all the foods once I reach my goal ofcourse in moderations.
Today is Day 6. Still light headaches and feeling hungry but I am able to control them.
BTW a Question: I don't like a lot of veggies but I like cucumbers so that is all I am eating for my 2 cup vegetables for lunch and dinner. Is it ok if I eat just one type of vegetable?

I totally agree - this forum is a better "coach" than the one I have seen for the past 8 weeks!

Default My motivation as I start P3

I've read part of the Beck book and rather than reading cards during the day, I have appointments pop up in Outlook throughout the day.

Subject line has the reasons for losing weight and keeping it off (this time)

"Donít disappoint husband again, Look better, Be healthier, New clothes, SIT DOWN, CREDIT, hunger quotient"

Meaning: Sit down to eat, give myself credit for walking past that darn bowl of candy at the front desk and decide how hungry I really am. Is it hunger or craving?

I start P3 in morning.
I've been reading posts and think I have breakfast figured out.
I want the same thing every day, something I can eat at my desk. I start work at 6 so have no intention of cooking eggs at 5AM.
I am thinking I'll do greek yogurt, blue berries, thin WW toast and couple tbsp. of almond butter. Will see what my coach says at WI today.


fingers crossed

Sorry to hear you had a rough weekend. Perhaps for next time you could make lunches/dinners that all of you could eat like noodleless chop suey or steak & a big salad. People staying at my house had better not expect to have crap set before them just because that's their usual diet... lol. My hubby & I eat healthy and anyone who stays at our house eats healthy too, or decides to go out for their own dinner .

On the question of cucumbers alone, keep trying to get a variety because cukes don't really have much nutrition/vitamins in them - you need all the colourful veggies like red sweet peppers, cruciferous veg like broccoli and cauliflower, etc to help your body get healthy again. The easiest way to try new veggies is to roast them in the oven with a little sprinkle of EVOO (which you are supposed to have anyhow) and some garlic cloves or spices and herbs. The veggies get sweeter that way and lose any bitterness.

Another idea is a marinated veggie salad (kinda like Greek Salad) with cukes, a few cherry tomatoes, a bit of green onion, and red pepper or yellow or orange chunks. Add a bit of oregano & basil, salt & pepper, EVOO, and apple cider vinegar and let sit in the fridge for a few hours.

You could also sneak spinach into your smoothies in the blender (IP peach mango is good.) Strange colour but close your eyes and drink up and you won't even know.

Hang on, and if you are working with a coach ask her for some veggie ideas, check out Chef Daniel Verati's Facebook page for some recipes (Chef Verati) - he cooks IP and has some good P1 ideas. You can also google IP veggie recipes and may find something you like. Start practicing finding interesting veggies you can learn to like because you will never manage maintenance if you don't have proper veg in your life. You DO realize we can't go back to eating our old way and expect to keep our results.

Thanks for the tip. I will check Checf Verati's page and also look for some veggie recipes.
I thought we could eat all the foods in moderation after our IP diet is complete. So I can never eat my beloved curly fries or chinese?

I eat chinese a lot, but then again I really like chop suey without rice or noodles, lol. Curly fries are perfect for your breakfast or for your 'Funday' once a week. I've eaten pizza for my breakfast and have been in maintenance 6 weeks now and actually lost a pound.

They contain aspartame, which is not allowed. I have seen on other threads that some people will make their own homemade gelatin using water flavorings and plain gelatin.
