I have something in my files called the IP Athlete Protocol. It is from 2012, so some things have changed (like unlimited veggies), Swede (=Rutabaga) was select, Bell peppers were occasional, my beloved Chayote isn't on the list....

In looking for an updated version, I found this, which is very helpful. Lisa outlines all the differences.

D: same
Snack 1-2 IP protein packs
It was noted to have 1-2 g protein per pound of lean body weight (not total body weight...lean mass is everything minus fat).

The sheet notes this at the bottom:
IMPORTANT - Reduce intensity of training, at this point priority is on conserving existing mass and trimming fat. Post workout (within 45 minutes) - Drink 2 envelopes: Peach Mango, Pineapple Banana, or orange Drink. (I added: choose lowest carb, lowest fat, lowest cal packets. Probably could add here the rasp jelly, lemonade, and the blue/cran granata)

It also notes on the bottom of the page to do cardio in the morning. Never get out of breath, 45 minutes performed 4-5 times Per week.

There is no date on the protocol sheet but I found it in 2011, so it is several years old.
Mini-goal #1 (ala Beck Diet Solution): Lose 5 pounds. Start date: October 31. Completed Nov 21! = 21 days.
Mini-goal #2: Lose 5 pounds AGAIN. Start date: November 22.
2016 CHALLENGE: Get back on modified Ideal Protein Diet until 25 pounds lost total. Start exercising!!!
>>>Revised goal ends up ~1619% total weight loss
