Ideal Protein Diet - Monthly Chat - November 2009
 
Well, hopefully, I figured out how to post a new thread since it is NOW 12:17am.....

Halloween is over....I didn't get ONE kid. I bought Sugar Daddies for candy cuz I don't like them. My son is coming up this weekend, so I will send them home to the granddaughters.

Spent the whole day altering clothes....and have really struggled. Apparently, my mind just isn't "wrapping: around the whole altering thing. I had really hoped to wait until I reached goal, but everything looks so sloppy, I had to do something.

Alwe74 - I wondered where you were......Let us know WHAT maintenance is like and WHAT we are allowed to have when we do maintenance. Like Gink said, we will probably all be doing lowcarb eventually (altho I looked ahead once on the diet...and saw fruit and grains......Probably something like Phase 22 or something....lol!!

Gink - that is good news. That is basically what I did last weekend...ate as low carb as I could. I didn't gain...I didn't lose. But I did struggle with those stupid headaches for the first 2 days.

So - hey - I tried someone's idea WAY back in the threads. I put pumpkin pie spice into my butterscotch pudding. THEN I put a THIN layer of that WF marshmallow sauce over the top (tried to pretend it was whipped cream). It was pretty good.

Ah well....am gonna go to bed, and try to get that extra hour sleep and hit the sewing machine again in the a.m. I HAD to turn off my computer so I wouldn't be tempted all day to see how you were all doing!! It was really nice tonight to sit down and read such uplifting posts.

Torchlaker thanks for starting up the new thread :hug:

Good morning everyone,

The recipes on this forum are awesome. I have tried the salad dressing and it is terrific. I also make up a big batch and use it all week. This way I get in my oil and still enjoy my salad. This group makes staying with the plan easy. Have a great day all.

Hi,

I'm new and would like to introduce myself. I am a 56 y.o. female. I have been on IP for 2.5 weeks and have lost 15 pounds! I look and feel great. I am 5ft 8 and I have lost a jean size from a tight 16 to a very comfortable size 14.

(I will not post my weight just yet because there is a nosy person sitting next to me, pretending to read the Sunday paper but looking over at my screen once in a while,:hug: LOL)

Anyway, I have been reading the old posts whenever I have time and have yet to catch up. I know some of you have been posting here since around August, 2009 and am very grateful to have found some support online. Your results are
part of what has kept me going! Thanks to each of you.

nicnyd 11-01-2009 12:06 PM

new and excited!
 
Hi all, I am soo excited to be here and read all of your posts and get the positive feedback!
I started IP 3 days ago and love how the food tastes. I weighed this morning and am down 4 lbs so far. Yippee!
My hubby is on IP too and is finding it alot harder dealing with the hunger than I am. I have just been trying to be positive ad reassuring to him. He does like the food which helps. We are finding the dinners are an easy adjustment cause we have alot of options to cook for ourselves. Plus he loves grilling with no sauce just spices.
I am hoping to reach a first goal of 40 lbs down by xmas, and then push on from there.
My brother is my sales rep and also owns 3 gyms and is a personal trainer and he says I should be able to reach that goal as long as I am dedicated to it. He has a few ladies who are quite a bit older than me who have been able to loose 40lbs in 2 months so he thinks it is attainable.
I look forward to spending some time here on this forum with you ladies and getting to know everyone.
Here's to my first week!:carrot:

Congrats Lilita - wow - i'm impressed! 15# in 2.5 weeks.

I tried putting a little canned chicken in with the chicken soup - it was GOOD! I'm going to try adding a little steamed veggies next time.

I use broccoli slaw instead of coleslaw and add WF honey mustard dressing.

I go for my 3rd weigh in on Tues. Lost 5# then 2.6#, hoping for the 5# again! Made Monster Cookies and I'm trying to stay out of the kitchen. I need some of that will power dust!

SylvieG 11-01-2009 08:51 PM

Almost unbelievable!
 
Ladies, Gentlemen,

For the first time in years, I bought myself a pair of jeans at a regular sized ladies boutique!! It must have been almost 18 years since I haven't done that!! :carrot:

Keep the good work - and can't wait for the weigh in tuesday!!

Hi my name is Marina. This is my first post. My husband and I have enjoyed reading everyone's comments & suggestions. I joined IP a week ago. At my first weigh in I lost 9.6lbs. I found it quite easy. There were a couple of days of hunger but I just drank more water or had a cup of tea to help me through that. The headaches have been an issue but today I broke up my 1/2 tsp of sea salt between my three meals and it seems to help.
Halloween was a breeze, and even went to a pot luck at work and I stuck to program. The only food on program I haven't liked so far were the cereal, and the drinks with the odour to them.
Looking forward to the support and suggestions from everyone
Marina

torchlaker 11-01-2009 11:53 PM

Hello to everyone...welcome newbies!! Everyone is doing so well. I really hope to see a loss this week (I did cheat once). Gotta stop that!!! If I go down ONE more pound...it will be the lowest I have been in 18 years.

SylviaG -- I haven't even gone to look for jeans yet. Wonder if I will be in a regular size? Maybe soon, I can quit ordering out of Roamans or Woman Within!!

Today I spent the entire day altering!! Very slow process. Put the clothes on...take them off....baste...put them on, take them off, yadayada. In some pants, I actually took out over 4" -- Tops were running about 3-3-1/2 inches. I haven't lost much in my bust (sure would like to!!)...but have lost in hip and waist. I figure these clothes will get me thru to goal..and then I want to go shopping!!! (or sew...whatever...).

Lilita...congrats!! You must be so excited!! Nicnyd - My goal was 40# by Dec.15th, when I go to Cleveland for the holidays. Weight loss is slow now...2-3# a week. Probably my own fault....eating too many restricted and not drinking enough water (or getting in all my veggies).

Tried an old family favorite (but without the spatzle,bacon and sausage). It was okay. I fried up cabbage, threw in some onions and leftover porkchops. Wasn't quite the same....but it helped!!

Also tried the crepe today! What a mess! Do you guys cook it in a small or large frying pan? I used my regular crepe pan, but I couldn't get the batter to flow off the sides...then I couldn't flip it - it all fell apart. Still edible, tho. Could use some "instruction" on that one.

Well, it is midnight....time for this ol' gal to turn in and then hit the $%$#@ sewing machine again. Wish I didn't have to go to the purse party tomorrow night. I KNOW I will be tempted!! My son comes in this weekend for a "work weekend." We are going to go thru my husband's things in both garages and basement. Have to rent a dumpster. It is going to be emotional, I am sure. (excited to see my kid, tho...haven't seen him since July).

toomanycats 11-02-2009 07:32 AM

welcome
 
Hi simplymar,
welcome to this great forum! I had to write to agree, the odor of some of the drinks it weird. I like the flavor of the peach-mango but it sort of smells sulfuric? I just hold my breath and down it or try not to think about the smell.

Unfortunately I had a BIG CHEAT day yesterday. :( Afraid to get on the scale today. Tomorrow is weigh day so I hope I can undo a little of the damage. I have been on IP for about 6 wks now and think I need to add exercise. I figure lots of reps and not too heavy weights will help burn calories w/o adding bulk/muscle weight. :carrot:

coolbreeze 11-02-2009 09:26 AM

Good morning everyone! I survived Halloween and hosting two big parties. We had a going away party for best friends where I baked cake for 200 people!!! White cake is my addiction, and I didnt even sneak one bite. I have no idea if it was any good, lol.
My question today is, I have hit a stall. I have followed plan with exception of over the weekend i didnt get in veggies/salad for two meals, just out of sheer business with two parties I hosted. I didnt cheat, but didnt eat. Then yesterday, I had a TON of spinach cooked with egg whites and a little turkey. I am stuck as a I have been for a week at 183. Any ideas? Have a good day.

torchlaker 11-02-2009 09:53 AM

Coolbreeze...I am SO impressed! I love white cake too ---(and I have never baked a cake bigger than 9x13...so I am double-impressed). Hope I have your willpower tonight at the Miche purse party. My normal day sounds like your weekend. I rarely get in my salad at lunch...sometimes don't even get the veggies in (always have a protein tho). Sometimes have 2 restricted a day...! MY nurse would tell you to drink more water and exercise to get out of a stall, I think (probably cuz I struggle with both). Altho no one really talks about it, I would think stalls/plateaus are all part of any diet. Doesn't one's body need to "adjust" a bit? I would probably lose weight faster if I followed the plan EXACTLY....but I would say "pump up the water." (I have been at the same weight for over 2 weeks now...tomorrow is weigh-in!). What does your coach/doctor say? (I think your weight loss in really good tho....how long have you been on IP?)

Marina - I don't like the smell of the drinks either. I, too, have to hold my breath to drink them. Today (I think), I am going to try to add some Torani syrup to the pink lemonade - maybe that will help. Maybe some coconut syrup (can you tell I love Torani/DiVinci sugarfree syrups?) to the pina colada drink? In all honesty, I would rather have a pudding than a drink!..and welcome! Awesome loss!

Harmonymom2 11-02-2009 10:32 AM

Torchlaker: I eat crepes every morning for breakfast. First, make sure your griddle is hot and coated with non-stick spray, even if you're using a non-stick pan. Then, pour into little puddles, not one big one. I make from 6-8 little crepes. I use a rubber spatula to flip them. Sometimes I add a sprinkle of cinnamon and a drop of vanilla extract, but usually just eat them plain. Wellllllll, with a light coating of butter, actually. :D

What I was told about Phase II, for those that were asking, is that the only difference is you drop 1 packet and replace it with your lean meat. In other words you do 1 packet for breakfast, have one for snack, but at both of your other meals you have your salad, veggies and lean meat. I sometimes have days where I do that anyway, if I forget to bring enough packets with me, and I'm not going home for dinner.

It's in Phase III that you start adding back unpermitted foods, but keeping your calories below a certain point, I think around 1250, and then Maintenance is using any foods you want, but keeping calories within 1500. You can go back to get packets periodically, when you start to see pounds creep back.

Hope that helps everyone's curiosity.

[QUOTE=torchlaker;2996925]What does your coach/doctor say? (I think your weight loss in really good tho....how long have you been on IP?)

QUOTE]

Thanks Torchlaker! I started doing IP at the end of September but had started low carb on my own about a week earlier. Prior to that I lost about 15 lbs on my own but just yo yo'd back and forth. I've lost about 13lbs in two weeks this time which I am thrilled with. In all honesty, my coach/doctor is worthless. They have a receptionist doing and the doctor is "around." She doesn't really have any ideas beyond what is printed on the materials which is frustrating. I go in at 8am before the rest of the staff is around or I would ask to see someone else. if i dont get a loss this week I do think I am going to ask for a little more guidance.

echobaby 11-02-2009 02:22 PM

I started Friday and have had, surprisingly, no problems EXCEPT- no real way to put it delicately- constant diarrhea. I noted in some of the old threads people discussing having the opposite. Anybody have my problem? does it ease off after a while?

SylvieG 11-02-2009 02:30 PM

Echobaby: I had this problem in the firsts weeks - then it changed to the opposite! A good thing would be to keep writing what you eat and talk about it with you coach.

echobaby 11-02-2009 02:51 PM

Thanks, SylvieG

echobaby 11-02-2009 02:52 PM

BTW, Sylvie, do you have to take anything for your opposite problem?

I tend to be plugges a little but have had a couple random loose stools...my boyfriend however who has been eating the same dinner with me, but with rice or potatoes almost looks sick after eating lol...his body is in complete vegetable shock I think. Hes used to eating soemthing liek a huge plate of spaghetti and half a loaf of bread..of course hes skinny though.

I weighed in today, lost 6.6 lbs on my 2nd week. it feels like its been forever. I cheated on halloween, i was up way to late and got hungry. I had about 2 slices of cheese. The doctor said thats one of the best ways to cheat if necessary, so I stopped beating myself up for it

Made salmon for my boyfriends family last night and they LOVED it...salt, pepper, and dijon mustard on top. Stick it under the broiler til its light brown and kinda crusty... just like my mom always made :)

torchlaker 11-02-2009 03:08 PM

I will have to try that with the crepes, Harmonymom. Trying to flip that crepe in a tiny crepe pan was the pits! Have you ever tried WF pancake syrup? That is what I used instead of butter....I actually like the syrup. I drizzle it on my oatmeal, too! Sometimes on my puddings!!

Good info about the Phases. Seems such a long way off yet.

echobaby 11-02-2009 03:35 PM

I just tried something new that I thought made a world of difference...I made the leek soup with zero fat no preservative chicken broth instead of water. Less than 1 gr. carb and 5 cals per cup. . With some garlic and onion powder and black pepper, the soup was actually sorta good. I also steamed my vegetables in it. WAY better. Any of you do this?

saraj1022 11-02-2009 05:34 PM

another wonderful discovery via my boyfriends mom that has been given the ok by my counselor.
Perrier sparkling water or Pellegrino mixed with crystal light...1 packet for every 16 oz
Not supposed to have it as your primary water source but totally ok...and wonderful :D

One of the things I love about the crepes is that they are unsweetened. I'm not a Splenda fan, so it's nice to have something without it, that's also filling.

You may find like I did that the drinks are really good if you make sure to mix them with very cold water and drink them through a straw so you won't smell the odor.

chubby twin 11-02-2009 07:23 PM

wish I had a coach!
 
I am 61 yrs young. Have been on IP for 11 days and lost 6 lbs. Since I am on IP to Go, I don't have a coach. So I weigh myself, measure myself and keep a diet record. I really appreciate what you all have to say, it is helping me. My daughter-in-law tried IP and couldn"t get past the smell. I can handle the drinks that have an odor,I just drink it quicky. The only thing that I can hardly eat is the banana pudding. uck! I love the chocolate drink and the cappuccino drink. I put the cappuccino in my coffee (I learned that here) I have a question. Has anyone noticed a difference in their sleeping habits since starting IP. I have trouble getting to sleep. I have my 3rd packet after dinner in the evening. Could this be the problem?

spatime 11-02-2009 07:39 PM

A little bummed today, week 4 weigh in only lost .2 pounds...but my measurments say I have lost over 15 inches in a month....so not all bad. Only 13 pounds though and I have been so faithful and am not even on the restricted foods yet.
This might help some of you.....Try 'NOW' brand psyllium capsules for the constipation or diahrea problems. Mix the drinks in icy cold water and drink through a straw and the smell isn't noticable (as much)

Bigenough 11-02-2009 08:42 PM

Hi all, I am very new to this IP way of life. Today being my first day. I am used to eating an unhealthy snack in the evening so I think this will be my hardest time. Also, I am used to drinking Coke Zero in the afternoon - any suggestions on anything caffene realted that might help besides coffee. I have a book club meeting tomorrow night at a resaturant and kind of nervous about that. Part of me doesn't even want to go but I will eventually have to handle social things. Any suggestions to help get through those situations?

feverfixer 11-02-2009 08:51 PM

Bigenough, I scout out the menu on line first and go in with an idea of what I can eat at the restaurant rather than be tempted at the time. I have only been on it for a week and a half and already lost about 12 lbs so it is definitely worth doing!
Good luck!

As for the fruit drinks, eh forget about 'em. I'd rather a soup or pudding any day!

I personally have found that I've been more wiped out in the evening so I tend to sleep well. I also eat my third packet in the evening, but maybe that affects you differently?

Congrats on the loss!!

joshb 11-02-2009 10:46 PM

Hey everyone!
I am a boy, Im 18 and i hope its okay that I can post here haha.
I am actually in film school, and im having a film crew do a documentary on my life. I am going on this diet and I currently weigh 349 pounds and my goal weight is 180 lbs.
I officially start tommorrow, I am SUPER excited and pumped for this.
After this I am wanting to walk in a marathon that is 3 miles and its for people to get off the couch.

BumpyMcPickles 11-02-2009 11:01 PM

New to IP - Quite Stoked
 
Starting IP this week. Ive been following this thread for a month now and all of you ladies are truly an inspiration. Im beyond ready to get my girlish figure back :carrot:

torchlaker 11-03-2009 12:06 AM

Saraj - I tried your "chicken packets" tonight....very good. Chicken was moist and tender. What was I supposed to do with the soysauce/oil stuff? I tried marinating the chicken in it, and then I poured it into the foil packets.

ChubbyTwin - I am 62!! I think we are the oldest ones here.....who said they couldn't teach an "old dog new tricks"?. The first few weeks I was scared to go out to eat or go to social events....but I am getting better.

Bigenough... I DO scout the menus before I go (as mentioned). I just figure on a salad with chicken. I do carry the WF packets with me in my purse, but most restaurants have a lowfat dressing. I am going out more and more now....

Josh...you can be a superstar! Document your loss with us, too.....Is the film crew documenting your weight loss....or your whole life? I am very proud of you to be tackling this...(and we do allow "males").

Weigh in is first thing in the a.m. I did go to my purse party. Took my water (instead of cider). OMG - they had pumpkin rolls! I finally took 1/4 of a slice..took 2 bites, and threw the rest away. It wasn't really THAT good. Hopefully, 2 bites won't throw me out of ketosis!!

I am glad to know that our posts/forum have inspired many of our newbies. When I started IP 9/9/09...I could find very little about IP. I ran across a post here by Alwe74...a few others were on too (Valkyrie...our star!!). I cannot believe how our forum has grown and how many members we have. I learn something new from all of you every single day!!

ottawa 11-03-2009 08:42 AM

Hello I am 53 and this is week 3 of IP for me. Lost 6.5 lbs the first week, 1 lb week 2. Did not cheat but have been told that everyone will hit a plateau of sorts and everyone will hit it at a different time so I guess mine occured quite quickly. Anyone else hit a plateau yet?

I am in the same boat. I weigh in tomorrow and am expecting only a 1lb loss. Ive heard that a true plateau is several weeks of losing neither pounds nor inches. I am upping my exercise and water and see if that gets things moving. Let me know what works for you!

kira 11-03-2009 09:43 AM

I'm traveling this week overseas. I have a little supply of IP shakes, bars, and puddings. So far I haven't mixed any puddings - I guess I shouls have brought a spoon and bowl! But it's been pretty easy so far. I had steak and greenbeans last night (had to tell them to take away the bread, and take the french fries off). Today I had a grilled salmon salad for lunch. I also brought the Walden Farms dressing packets, but some vinegar and oil also works.

If you can't find something exactly right, stick with low-carb.

Josh - You'll do great! Post us on your progress.

Just a reminder to everyone that the survey on the Ideal Protein products is in the FAQ. Do check it out if you're ordering products.

ottawa 11-03-2009 10:11 AM

Thanks for the reply! Sorry to say but "misery likes company" and to know that I am not the only one in this situation, but I do not wish this on anyone!! The way the plan is administered for me is that I am only allowed to do 2- 30 minute interval cardio workouts a week and 1-one hour class that involves weights etc. I will try increasing the water and see what happens and let you know.
