Works well for those that need to keep their blood sugars slightly higher and need more carbs to function effectively.
Something to check into with your coach. If they haven't heard of it, they need to get in contact with the head office of IP who can fill them in.
If you are already used to exercise don't quit it entirely but you will need to scale back a bit and listen to your body carefully.

Thanks! I'm back on plan without a coach this time. I did my first WI this morning and wanted to die. PMS + normal weight gain is not my friend. I did two IP packets and I'm doing my cardio day today and will see how it goes. I may switch to Yoga + Pilates instead of my kick boxing and weights classes and then just do regular Phase 1 + an extra packet after the workout if I find it to be too much.
