I might add we are losing at the same pace also. And reading the posts and browsing the recipies is extremely addicting.

Welcome beyourbestinidaho, I had my initial consultation on 1/18/10 and started the next day. I was supposed to have my second weigh-in today (we weigh in every 3 weeks) but we are having a snowstorm in Northwest NJ.

Again welcome to the thread, we look forward to getting to know you.

Hiya beyourbest - I'm super short only 5'5"!! I'm sure you're much taller than I am

That's neat that we started on the same day and have been losing the same amount of weight.

Nice to see you here on the boards!

Can anyone share some information on exercise with this diet. What are most of you doing and how long and how many times per week. I shared earlier that my coach said to only exercise at night for the first three weeks on IP which totally screws up my routine as I had been walking 1 hour each morning. Later on in the day is not something I can do on a consistent basis.

I usually have a pudding every night for a snack - either as a pudding or with extra water as a drink. when i checked, the ca levels in the chocolate pudding are 263% of your daily ca requirement and the vanilla is also well over 100%. Other IP foods are low. Because I'm getting well over the requirment with the IP foods i'm having (chocolate and vanilla puddings) I have decided to skip my ca supplements:. Every thing is moving again and no problems at all anymore. I talked with my counsellor about this strategy and she's headed to a big conference and is going to ask.
wow! I just noticed your only four lbs away from goal! That is awesome!!

Yes, it is in addition. It's because we're urinating so frequently. Our bodies are getting depleted of their sodium every day. That's why people are getting headaches a lot if they're not getting their sea salt. They told me I can even take more if I need to (get a headache). I think it might be different for people with high blood pressure, but they ask you that up front.

I must admit that I have not exercised at all beyond my normal activities--housework, grocery shopping, and bowling. I was told I didn't have to on this diet and if I did to keep it light and not get my heart rate up. They don't want you burning muscle and you don't eat enough carbs on this diet to justify much exercise. So if you do exercise strenuously, I think you should be sure to add a packet or two on those days. Of course, you should follow whatever your individual coaches are telling you.

Not exercising sounds good to me.

BevS, I do understand that we need extra sodium on this diet when we're are urinating so much. But do we need it the whole way through the diet? I'm just starting my 3rd week and today I'm going my normal level for the first time since starting. Last night was the first night since starting that I didn't have to get up as well. I'm hoping that I will settle in at this level. (Fingers crossed!) If so, do we still need the tons extra salt?

You can walk for an hour every day. I do. Well, I walk throughout the day as I have a dog, but we take 2 walks in the morning and 2-3 at night. On weekends we walk farther and it takes about an hour (in addition to the necessary morning and evening walks). As long as you are not power walking like crazy, I think you should be fine. My clinic told me that all my dog walking is fine. When we had the blizzard earlier this February, sometimes I walked 2.5 hours a day. It was so nice not to have to work! My dog loved it.

I don't know the answer to this, but I walk 3 or 4 times a week on this diet (45 minutes of walking, but it takes about 90 minutes because I take my cat!) It's not strenuous exercise, obviously. I need it because otherwise I am very sedentary. I don't think strenuous exercise would be recommended on this diet, but I would think walking would be fine. If you have some protein before you go, I don't see why you can't go in the morning.

Anyway, I bought some and have been having a few each day to satisify that need. Hopefully they won't have a huge impact.
I would say no, not on plan....but I have had them and still had a loss for the week, and I ate the whole bag. They are fatty and not the healthiest choice...but for carbs/sugars aspect....I suppose it is better than potatoe chips? Good luck.
