I've decided that it would be best if I hid my scale. I get obsessed with weighing myself and my weight can fluctuate so much. If I weigh myself everyday I get discouraged if I'm not losing the same amount each day, however, if I only weigh once a week i'll be excited at whatever the loss is. For instance if I weigh myself on Tuesday and i'm down 4 lbs and then I weigh myself again each day and the scale stays the same I get frustrated. Where as if I were to weigh once a week and was down 4 lbs I would think that was a great. Does that make sense?

Kelly, I am in the exact same boat. I weigh myself several times a day and it is NOT HELPFUL! So, wanna make a deal? Let's hide our scales until... um... Monday. And then we'll report back and see if we liked it or if it drove us crazy. Does that sound good? Anyone is welcome to join us, and we'll regroup on Monday. Thoughts?

Veggies and meat are to be measured raw. It could be the way I was interpreting it but just checking to make sure that's what you're having per day.

Good luck, you can do it!
My "coach" has it all on a calendar, so I can't screw it up. Yesterday I had a shake packet for breakfast, a soup packet for lunch, 8oz of meat and two cups of veggies for dinner and a snack bar for snack. The veggies were sautéed in oil. I was short two cups of veggies ad I hadn't planned on four cups being ad much as it is. All measurements are taken pre-cooked.

Oh...and a salad, just lettuce, with my soup packet.

Is this not correct?

Day four seems to be the day that things look up for me when I'm doing sugar/carb cleanse. Generally I'd go for a run and build some endorphins to attack the headache but no exercise permitted. Guess I'll nap instead

It is:

1 packet for breakfast
1 packet & 2 cups of veggies for lunch
8 oz protein & 2 cups of veggies for dinner
1 packet as a snack
2 tsp of oil and your salt
All the lettuce you want

The Phase 1 sheet is in the 1st post of the daily chat.

Some people use a bit of their veggies for breakfast (like in the omelet) and break their protein up between lunch and dinner.

Hope that helps!

My coach told me a packet for breakfast, packet with 2 cups veggies and lettuce for lunch, 8oz meat with 2 cups veggies and lettuce for dinner and a packet for a snack. With a "packet" being any IP product as long as I only have restricted item once a day.

Down 5lbs since last Thursday and so happy about it!

Today I was really, really hungry. I felt like I couldn't stop eating - all good, OP but still. This weekend we are doing a crab leg/shrimp boil with the family which I think is kind of perfect timing because it fits right in with IP. I'm going to miss the potatoes, corn, and kielbasa slices though. I'm making some cheesy cauliflower tots to be our "cheddar biscuits" Red Lobster style.

Totally hungry today. I have my 2nd weigh in tomorrow. Been drinking a lot of water but not that filling.
