I was trying to go through and thank each individual person for responding to my post but I would just like to thank everyone who responded!

Very helpful information... I will use the bars, maybe split them up.

Navymommy, I like the idea of simplifying the diet. I'm trying to make it as simple as possible.

How many bars are we allowed? is it two a week?

Sorry about all the questions... I just want to get this right this time!

thanks again everyone for the continued support.

Thanks for all the info! I think I need to start using more alternative product. The expense of this diet is becoming too much. I have been using the drinks from Walmart .

Hello Theresa,

I'm sorry, but at this time we're not set up to ship into Canada.

Tom
Well that stinks. It's not as though the products aren't MADE in Canada. So I'm sorry. I gave you misinformation. I thought the Canadian headquarters shipped, too.

Their prices are cheaper than IP products and they have good sales; sometimes up to 40% off. I'm unsure if they ship to Canada. I'm having issues with their site right now to check, but here's the link if you are able to view it. http://shop.lindora.com/

You're allowed 1 bar a day. Now if you start ordering things like chili or spaghetti from some of the different sites those are further restricted to 2 a week, but you can have a bar every day. I even find that I do better with a restricted every day in my diet.

seems like there is more doing alternatives... I have ordered from Nashua Nutrition, just DO NOT use FED EX, they charge you tax which is okay, but they charge you a handling fee of $11. so I do regular post to canada takes a little longer but cheaper in the long run.

Is this still correct? The paper I saw for Alternative Phase 1 said no corn, etc.

Breakfast
1 IP packet
plus one group choice ( will list groups below)
plus coffee/tea with 1 oz skim milk
sweetener allowed

lunch
1 IP packet
plus 1 group choice
plus
2 cups select veggies and unlimited lettuce

dinner

7 oz fish or 5 oz meat from select choice
plus 1 group choice
plus 2 cups select veggies

snack

1 IP packet

Compulsory

64 oz water

1-2 teaspoon olive or grape seed oil

regular IP supplements

IMPORTANT: only one choice from each GROUP is permitted per day. ALL THREE GROUPS MUST be consumed per day.

GROUP 1

2 slices toast ( whole grain, pumpernickel, rye, multigrain,sourdough, stone ground whole wheat, oat bran, sprouted grain)
150 grams whole wheat pasta
150 grams brown rice ( not instant)
1 sweet potato, or small boiled potato
60 grams oatmeal ( non instant)
150 gram - 200 grams couscous
50 grams unsweetened cereal (bran, oat, whole grain or barley)
150 grams cooked legumes (chick peas, lentils, green peas, kidney beans)
150 gram corn


Group 2

fresh fruit ( example: 1 grapefruit, 1 apple, 2 kiwis, 150 g pineapple, 1 banana,200 g strawberries, blueberries, blackberries or raspberries.
fruit is allowed, but optional, and must not be replaced with another food group.

group 3

1 sugar free yogurt
1 - 60 oz glass milk (2% M.F or less)
30 gram cheese (about 20% M.F)
120 g cottage cheese

Fruit is not allowed on Phase 1. I would suggest viewing the Alternative Sticky at the top of the IP forum. This has a lot of great informaiton including all the different IP phases so you can mimic them with alternative products.
