Off to a great start, kelligirl! It is technically possible to do this without IP/alternative products (using 'real' food) BUT it takes a lot of time and energy in planning and making sure you have all your macronutrient needs covered! Why add extra stress when, although it's more expensive, you can have the IP clinic do all the prep & planning for you? I think you will be successful doing it right and be so proud of yourself!
My hubby did lose 18 lbs doing IP style without the packets/alternatives, but that meant I did all the planning and doling out of vitamins, etc and he just ate what I put in front of him.

This diet really is a complicated 'system' that has been created so we don't have to think too hard. But there are lots of things that don't make sense until you understand it better. That's why we always encourage new people to follow the plan and ask questions because sometimes "logic" doesn't work. At least you are trying to learn about the hows/whys and this will really help you not make those mistakes again. You obviously have the drive to get the weight off -- you'll get there this time!

Thank you both of you - gave me a huge smile this morning (and I needed one!).

IP is a great plan and you guys are doing great - I always get so inspired by watching people learn IP and get going, the enthusiasm and determination help keep me on the straight and narrow. We are a great bunch, aren't we?!?

I also love jicama with lime juice and chili powder, which I tried after seeing it posted on this forum. My hubby loves it too and asks for it often! I hope others continue to post their yummy recipes here, as all the ones I have tried so far have been delicious.

I peel my jicama and then cut into sticks. Then I decide if I would like "apple pie" or "lemonade." For that apple pie flavor, I toss in a packet or 2 of splenda and generous pinches of cinnamon, ginger, and ground cloves, sometimes some nutmeg. I put in about a tablespoon of water and a tsp of olive oil. I put the lid on the container and shake it a bit to distribute the spices. Yum!

For lemonade, again, a packet or 2 of splenda (this is for 2 c. jicama sticks) and then I zest a small lemon, using maybe half the lemon skin for zest, right into the jicama. I juice 1/2 the lemon (a small one) right into the jicama, and, again, cover and shake. Yummy.

Lots of fiber. If anyone is "moving" a bit slow . . . jicama for lunch a couple days in a row usually gets things moving again.

I make it into fries, cut them into sticks and spray them with olive oil, salt and pepper and bake them in the oven. So tasty.

I can never find it in my backwoods store so I just dream longingly of all the yummy things I read about. I DID find frozen Okra once but let me tell you, that was NOT pretty to try to eat. Jicama sounds waaaayyy better to cook with then slimy frozen okra. LOL

I just got jicama from my local international food market (or I think it's jicama anyway...)! This "apple crisp" has me intrigued.
