I hear you there. I'm just deciding whether I can fool myself into going back to sleep for an hour or if I should just go ahead and turn the coffee on. But I suspect I'm up for the day.

Happy Friday to all!
Weigh-in today! Last week was huge, so I'm expecting a smaller one today. Any loss is a good loss!

Default Wendy's Chili

Yesterday there were several posts recommending Wendy's chili... In checking the ingredients, it lists beans, soybean oil, corn syrup and sugar among its ingredients. The 12oz serving size has 310 calories and 31 carbs (with 10 fiber).

I think it was being recommended as a meat meal replacement, but on carbs alone I would choose to pass in P1.

Just wanted people to know the nutrition info when deciding on a quick meal!

Yeah for Friday! Who needs an alarm clock? I certainly don't. Traveling this weekend and short week next week because we got Good Friday off which is new this year for our company!

Weigh in this morning.

JLUS - I didn't see that discussion yesterday, but I totally agree with you. Beans/Legumes (with the exception of green/wax which are restricted veggies) are not on the P1 sheet and therefore not a P1 food.

If people are looking for a quick meal at a fast food - my suggestion would be a grilled chicken sandwich (and eat the meat only) or a salad.

Happy Friday all.

Panera's Mediterranean Chicken Salad from the power menu is very close to plan. They put tomatoes on it, so you would have to ask for that off but the carb count is very low, something like 8.

Default IP Shakes

Please excuse me if this thread was not intended for my question.
I've seen a lot of posts comparing ingredients of non-IP shakes to IP shakes, but I can't seem to find any posts that compare the taste. I love the chocolate powder IP shakes, and I've been testing all kinds of commercial versions (GNC, whey, soy, you name it), but I can't find one that tastes as good as IP. I want to continue mixing the powder with water, and something about the IP shakes allowed the shake to thicken up, and that's been hard to find. Plus, as I said, the taste of them just don't compare. Any tried and true recommendations?

Unfortunately...taste is VERY individual...so any answers you get may not really be helpful! The only real answer is very often your tastes change after being on this diet for a while...so down the road it is worthwhile to try something you thought was so-so again. Your oppinion may change! And you also get tired of things...even the IP items you like a little more in the beginning...can get old.
