I did it from Nov 24 to May 10. Lost 80 pounds in that amount of time. It definitely works but can be very boring.

I use to go to the gym 3 days a week and do cardio and weights and had trouble burning 5lb a month.

So to all you that are on there first day or two it does pay off to only do Non-restriced IPs, if at all possiable. Good Luck
A great 1st WI...keep up the great job!!!

I think that is one of the funniest (and truest in my case also) things I've read about this diet!! I had the Sea of D for at least 2 weeks!!

By the way, just want to add that Ketosis Rocks!!

Kudos to you! It does pay off, keep up the good work! What a great first week loss.

Some may disagree with this, but you shouldn't feel obligated to use the rIP packets. I am in week 9 and haven't had any. My coach is cool with it and just instructs me to have an extra regular packet on days I exercise or feel I just need/want one. I would say to discuss you options with your coach and keep up the good work, you've made it over the mtn.

yes, it is "off protocol" but for me, it was very successful at staving off the big C, which isn't just a comfort thing, it's a health thing. So I also figured the "wash" and opted to use it 2-3 times a week. And 1 tsp is about what I would toss into my shaker with a pudding and lots of extra water.

I wonder if svelting could add that link to the already amazingly useful list of links on the head of each day's chat? (Let me add my thanks to others for you taking on the work of herding all us cats! )

Even if your body is used to it, cardio can kick you out of ketosis. I would suggest dropping most of this (or severely lessening the intensity more to "walking") until you are done with phase 2.

My surest measure was always my energy/hunger level. If you are not hungry (or only hungry as you approach meal times, or only a faint hunger from time to time) you are definitely in ketosis. You could not be living on 800-900 calories a day and not feel STARVING if your body were not accessing fat stores to live on. In my case (the 2 times I got kicked out of ketosis) I was STARVING and very weak for about 6-8 hours until it kicked back in.

wow 80 pound loss in 5 months! That's incredible!

I went to my endocrinologist today. I brought her information on the IP diet, we discussed it at length, and my personal health issues. She did say high protein diets cause kidney stones, and she was concerned because I have had them before..She also is concerned with extra headaches due to artificial sweetners in IP products....
She wants me to have 2 glasses of skim milk and 1 cup lowfat yogurt daily with 1200 mg Calcium. and multi vitamin, and vit D. She also wants me to stop phase 1 after 4 more months and then go thru the rest of the phases. She ordered bloodwork.She will call me with results. Now I see her again in March.

So now I have to ask,you experienced IPers- will these dairy additions throw off the whole diet? Will I continue to lose weight even at a slower rate??? OR should I just phase off IP all together, if I am changing Dr Tien's diet..??

Tminus80, thanks for the boost of confidence. It looks like you are doing a fabulous job.

I see some loose more and some less, I just figuer at least it is something, I can't wait untill I can start working out again I really miss my wieghts, and my yoga that I was doing. I figuer I can probably start some yoga at least the streaches that don't have my heart rate up over 60%.

Default Doh!

I just realized that I haven't taken my cal-mag supplement in WEEKS! I moved in mid to late August so my routine changed a bit. I completely forgot about taking cal-mag until I read another thread on this board. Now I wonder what kind of impact this has had?? Yikes.

Have you talked to your coach about the IP Alternate program? My bf did the alternate program for all phases. (he is in maintenance now.) It is the same but adds a bit of fruit, grain, and dairy to your normal plan. He still continued to lose with this program. I would talk to your coach about the Dr's request and maybe the alternate program and maybe try it for a week or 2 to see if that eases up the migraines. PS. Did the doctor test for your iron levels too? My iron levels are low which causes me fatigue and in turns triggers the headaches sometimes. If I take my iron supplements regularly this seems to help (one more damn pill). I wouldn't suggest taking iron though unless your test results prove it to be low. Good luck and I do hope you start feeling better soon.

So I'm back on track and it's looking like if I hit the Halloween Challenge (30 lbs. for me), then after Halloween I can start on Phase 2. I should be on maintenance just in time to avoid all of the holiday food...

Default Onderland Part 2

I am nervous and excited...nervous because I am having arthroscopic surgery on my knee tomorrow. Excited because today at my weigh in I crossed the 100 lbs. lost. 100.5 to be exact. This IP journey has been nothing short of a miracle. 25 weeks ago, I was wondering if I was doomed to be overweight for the rest of my life. Today, with the help of IP, my coach, my family and people on this forum, I believe that I will get rid of that final 6.5 lbs and keep the weight off for good.! I am a refugee from nearly every diet plan that you could name, but not one has worked like this. I was so worried when I started that it would be so limiting....then I decided it was limited for just a while so I could have a limitless future where weight would no longer be an issue. Over this time, I have only worried about the day that I was in and not tried to project too far into the future.

Tomorrow is my surgery and for the first time in a looooooooong time, I was actually able to get my wedding ring off. Hopefully, not carrying around the extra 100+ pounds will be kind to my knees. As an aside, I was worried because my weight loss was slowing down. This past week, I moved to Phase 2 and during that week, I lost 5.5 pounds. I was astonished! I hadn't seen a loss like that since the early months.

Congrats to all the new people! Lots of people are reporting great losses in the early weeks. Promise yourself to stay strong and on plan. If you are a lurker, I am glad that you are reading the forum, but please post and introduce yourself. This is an amazing forum with the absolute BEST support!!
