Default Calling all Newbies! IP or IP using Alternatives...Let's do this!

Hi there! I'm Linda and I Just started following the IP Protocol 5/21/2014. After seeing the amazing results my friend was having on the program, I knew it was for me. So today is day 4 and I love it! I took a peek at the scale and I'm already 6 lbs down! Whoohoo! I am 100% following the IP methodology but using Alternative products.

So far, my days go like this...

Upon waking...Coffee

B: Protein Shake

L: Turkey breast with raw veggies ie... green peppers, cucumbers, radishes, green onion, mushrooms

D: Lean steak with roasted broccoli and cauliflower and a green salad with some chopped fresh veggies. Dressing made with coconut vinegar and a little coconut oil

S: Protein shake

I'm Using Pink Himalayan sea salt liberally on my food

Drinking about 100 oz or more of water each day. Sometimes I use my soda streamer to fizz it up and then add a slice of lemon, and sometimes I drink it just plain. I have to stay close to the potty because boy oh boy, am I am going like a race horse..lol

Vitamins I'm currently taking...
Multi vitamin
Vit D3
Magnesium
Calcium
Potassium
Vit C
Carlson's finest Fish oil

I feel GREAT except today I have a headache probably from my body detoxing.

Anyway, I thought it would be a whole lotta fun to get a group of us that have recently started, planning to start, or even re-starting together for added accountability, support, and motivation. So join me and let's get this party started!!

Welcome to both of you! I a newbie too, though I've been on the boards here for a little bit longer than either of you. I started IP on May 1. There's a thread for May starters too--you'll want to be sure to say "hi" over there!

So excited to get all scrawny with you both! xoxox

Hi everyone! I'm new to IP too this month - started on May 1st and I really haven't lost as much as I'd hope for my best friend's wedding I'm in on 6/21.....I have cheated the last two Sundays but tomorrow I'll do better!! I am on the boards here and there and have gotten some great ideas- I'm running low on the vitamins so I'm wondering what anyone has come up with for alternatives?
TIA

Hi Liza! You can do it! I have been using what vitamins I already had so I haven't really looked into perfectly matching them up to the IP ones. Sorry I am not more help on this subject, maybe someone else can chime in.

Hi everyone. This is my first post here, so I hope I done mess it up. I started IP 5 weeks ago and lost 16 lbs in the first 4 weeks. I was away last week visiting my son who is a foodie and very over weight. The first 5 days of the visit I went totally nuts eating in resturants with him. I found that the longer I ate like that the worst I felt.
I convinced my son that if he wanted to loss weigh quickly, that IP was the way to go. On the 6th day of my "vacation" he joined a local IP centre and I got back on track.
I know I will not cheat again till I have lost my weight and I know my son will succeed, he is a true warriour in every sense of the word. I called my weight coach today and thanked her from the bottom of my heart for 1. Convincing me to start this journey and 2. For hopefully changing my son's life
