Default Yep. No loss week 1

I hadn't felt Wierd, hungry, or anything. I followed the protocol and like the other diets, no loss. Stupid scale. I am going to keep going because I know it is physically impossible not to lose weight as it is so low cal. 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!

Phase 1, day 1 starts today!! Very excited! Have a whole week of good meals planned. I've enjoyed thinking of ways I can doctor up my IP packets with veggies and spices to make them interesting. It's a fun challenge!

Billy7613:

make sure you are getting in your packets.

2 unrestricted + 1 restricted with 4 cups of veggies and 8oz of lean meat.

by the looks of it, you are not using the last packet.

My day consist of this:
B:1 packet of Honey Nut Soy Cereal
L: 2 cups of Broc + 1 Packet of PD Cream of Chicken
S: BBQ zippers
D: 8oz lemon chicken with 2 cups of rutabaga with 1.5 tbsp of olive oil

throughout the day i am drinking about 64oz+ of water.

Hope this helps!

It's been awhile since I've checked in and missing the support from my fellow IP'ers.
I am trying to find the IP Phase 2 sheet.

Good morning everyone. I had a restful yet productive weekend and wasn't hungry yesterday... Yay! I have to remember next time I'm struggling to take a time out to rest and get back in the 'zone'. Seemed to do the trick! Have a good day!

Sometimes your body may be reacting because it's TOO low cal all of a sudden and it has gone into "starvation caveman mode" or whatever they call it. I'm not sure what your starting weight is, but make sure you're getting in all your packets as recommended. On yesterday's chat Lisa listed the packets per weight ratio. Check to see-- maybe you should be having an extra packet for the first bit?

Some people also think skipping the restricted helps them but others find they need the boost so maybe add a restricted as your last packet. It may be a yummy treat to look forward to as well

Don't give up. The journalling is really important. You'll see a trend after a bit.

I'm so glad you're feeling better. It sounds like you have gained good knowledge from this experience and another tool to keep you OP = taking time to take care of yourself. Good job.

I was traveling for work all last week but I thought about all of you fellow IP'ers.

I did a bit of P2 last week to get through my traveling. Ate 2 lean and green meals and then cut out my last snack, but it helped me get through the week without a cheat, so that's a total NSV! I thought for sure at my conferences, when the free alcohol and hors d'oevers were flowing, I was going to cave. But I didn't and came back to a 7.4 scale loss!

And I earned my ticker! Love seeing the progress on that thing!

I just got back from a week long trip and was able to stay completely OP. I went with my daughter and son-in-law by car on a 21 hour drive to see my grandson graduate from army boot camp. I packed a week's worth of chopped up miscellaneous veggies, along with Rainbow's travel kit and lots of protein packets. The ice chest sat beside me in the back seat and worked out perfectly. 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.

Are you measuring your veggies? Maybe you are getting a few more in than you realize. Also, the Danilyn made a good point. You want to be sure to get that snack in! I was ill with the flu for a week and I had a terrible time eating all the food for that week and I somehow managed not to loose a pound eating 300-400 calories a day for about 6 days. (Not a planned thing - I just couldn't keep anything down) Another thing that might play a factor is TOM. Weight fluctuates like mad during that time!!! Keep up the good work and the scale will be more compliant in the next few weeks for sure!!!

Started using alternatives today and I'm a bit nervous! In 2 months, I have lost 30 pounds! I want to keep that up! But I also want to have a little more spending money to make this a fabulous summer for my niece who lives with us. 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)...
