My favorites veggies are asparagus, spinach, mushrooms, zucchini, cucumber, bok choi, and celery. I am not a big broccoli or cauliflower fan, but I will eat them. I miss my green beans.

My favorite foods so far are: chocolate drink (with a bit of almond extract) and the lemon pudding.

Question - has anyone used the Walden Farms spreads or the blueberry syrup? I was thinking they might be good additions to the vanilla drink to mix up the flavors a bit.

Hi everyone. Had my second weigh-in today. Was down 3.3 lbs. The weekdays are pretty easy for me, but the weekends are tough! Good luck everyone.

Wonderful to see so many new people....and I am SO glad we have this forum now. My nurse has been giving the website out to some of their patients so we may have even more.

I was told I could have 2c. of restricted veggies...and could spread them out during the week. I eat less than that....but boy, I can sure make a cherry tomato go FAR!! I need to look at it in my salad.

I mostly eat broccoli and cauliflower...steamed or stirfried with honey dijon WF dressing over it, sometimes. I also grill asparagus on my Foreman Grill. I add a touch of sugarfree Toranti syrups (cuz I already had them here) to my puddings and you could use extracts. Sometimes I drizzle a teaspoon of WF pancake syrup over them.

OK -- I had my month weighin today...and I am down 15# for the month (3.5# loss this week...which seems to be about my average). I am on a lot of meds so that might be slowing my loss. The main reason I went on IP was to see if I could eliminate some of my meds under doc's supervision.

I also bought the vanilla premixed drinks today. I have gotten caught 5 times without anything for lunch (like, yesterday -- I WAS prepared with cutup veggies...and apparently, I didn't put the top on tight. One big curve...all my veggies were on the floor). I thought if I threw in a drink, it was there if I needed it. (it is very hard for me to eat lunch....never have...).

you should have a list of allowed veggies from your rep. if not I can help. Tomatoes are fruit and should be avoided, they will slow down your weight loss. I have been sticking to broc, coliflour, green squash and asparigus, spinich so far. I lost 21 pounds in the month of sept. total weight loss to date is 24 pounds. anything that has sugar even fruit sugar will slow weight loss. My mother weighs 345 lbs at 5 foot 3 and i'm trying to be an example for her and hope she will join me....she can loose her weught in 14 to 15 bmonths if she commits..this program is awsome..I went to a family reunion over the wekend and ate 2 grilled chicken legs, I was not even temped to those high sugar foods, just looked at all the obese diabetics eating and thought thank God for my lack of desire to eat those foods.

I am on my second day--and really feel full. My question is do I HAVE to have a packet for a snack if I am not hungry. I had the eggs for breakfast, then the bueberry yogurt for lunch. Had good dinner, but am not hungry now. I love reading all the food hints as well as the encouragement given by everybody.

I've been spying for a couple of weeks now, thought I'd go ahead and post. I've been on IP for 8 weeks and have lost 37 lbs so far. Its great to see so many others are doing well! Keep up the good work and I will post recipes some time soon (i'm a trained chef and LOVE to cook...hence the 100 lbs I need to lose)

WELL, i had my weigh in and am trying to feel positive. my first weigh in i lost 9.2 lbs and promised myself that even though i knew it would be impossible to lose that much each week, that i would not be disappointed. yet I WAS....i was down 3.2lbs this week. thing is, i felt i did everything so much better this week, although i never cheated in the first week, i did not take the time and care in my meals as i did the second week. i just read the post about the tomatoes, and now wonder if this affected my week. i understood that we could eat from the restricted veggies twice a week. both times i chose a tomato....because i thought we could. so now i am left wondering... i am having trouble with the protien options as well. finding i am mainly having the vanilla and choc drinks, and cereal. i do not like much of the other choices. i have not yet tried any restricted packets nor have i bought the bars or the snacks. hopefully i am not affecting weight loss by limiting the variety of protien...i would like to think that it should not matter which 3 packets i choose, as long as i have 3 daily and they are not from the restricted or limited groups. does anyone have any insight on this?

You can go to waldenfarms.com & order whatever you like.....just remember we want to teach healthy eating habits- so it's not good to go overboard with it , just keep it simple. I personally love a lot of their products we carry a bunch in our office for a convienence to patients

Yes you do. Even though you might not feel hungry your body needs it to get through the night. It is a requirement.

Does not matter which 3 you choose, not one bit. 3-4 lbs a week is average for a woman. Don't stress you did AWESOME! I don't eat anything restricted anymore, I never ate the restricted veggies to begin with, but now I don't even eat the restricted bars. I was sick all last week and am still a little sick but sticking to the meal plan.

Don't worry the lbs will melt away, like I said, I would just stay away from anything RESTRICTED if you can, you might see much better results! Also journaling and making adjustments on what you ate one week to the next might help you loose too.
