Like this forum posts there will be other cakes just as good when we get to the point that we can eat them.

I have never not taken a bite of cake here and there.
Congrats, cmsgrrl!!! I have never met a cake or cookie or candy that I did not like!!! I used to eat them thoughtlessly - just because they were there!! Now it helps that I am so full from eating the correct amount of veges, drinking all my water! Good job!!

Where is our fav info girl, Carla aka showgirlz??? I miss her!

Love it!!

My dress pants that I wore to church on Sunday looked baggy on me too, but I wore it with my oversize top and no one noticed. Can't wait to buy new ones! Looks like you've got some shopping to do as well.

The forum has a help section. It seems I edited that link out of the first post. Oops! Just go to the main page and it's in the very first section "Announcements and Forum Help"

I have been losing a LOT of hair for almost a month and a half now. Just wondering from people who have lost hair as well how long it lasted before it stopped... I started with THICK hair so I wasn't too worried, but now I'm starting to get a little worried the thinner my hair gets. Thanks.
I started noticing a lot more hair coming out when brushing and washing my hair in late September/early October. It's also a huge annoyance on the furniture and floor! What IP is going make me run the vacuum, now? Cripes, maybe a regular housekeeper should come with the program!

The phenomenon is called telogen effluvium, which is the medical term for acute hair loss due to a metabolic, hormonal or drug stress. Dr. Michael Eades (the Mister Doctor of the couple who wrote Protein Power) wrote about VLC (very low carb) diets and hair loss on his blog in November 2007. This post refers to a specific diet that isn't IP but the information about the process is still useful. I can't post the link because 3FC censors the name of the diet and the author uses the name in the page address. If you Google < michael eades blog "telogen effluvium" > Eades's blog post is the first result. He responded to every commenter for 15 months! And he's very encouraging about temporary nature of the hair loss.

A point of clarification: the other diet that is referenced is extremely unhealthy (that's why the name is censored by 3fatchicks) and the "developer" of it was revealed to be a complete fraud. I am not suggesting that anyone follow that diet. For what it's worth, I'd rather be fat than take those risks.

EEEK! So I guess that my plans of growing my hair longer for my wedding in July is out of the question! As long as my re-growth of hair doesn't resemble a mullet, I'm good to go!

When I get to the point where my hair is falling out I'll remember this post - thankfully it sounds like your hair will grow back!

My hairstylist recommended that I use a GNC supplement for Hair, Nails and Skin. I was having nail issues and I was worried about the skin issue and so I figured the hair was a bonus. I haven't had any hair loss and my hair seems to be growing pretty quickly.

Hello IPers.
I need to go off ip for two weeks. I need to be on a low iodine diet for that period.
My IP coach plans on moving me quickly to phase 2 & then 3 prior to my break.

Any ideas why? I was just thinking of doing phase 1, breaking and the back to phase one.

Thx

You will - just have a plan. When I go to conferences or long workshops, I pack my protein stuff and take cut up vegies in zip lock bags and bottled water. I carry it all up to my hotel room (or roll it up there) and put it in the refrigerator. It is so nice that most of the convention hotels now have microwaves and refrigerators in the rooms. If the lunches are provided, I salvage what I can - usually salad and I pull my WF dressing out of my purse. When the group goes out for dinner I order grilled chicken or salmon and salad. If they have grilled vegetables I will get those and count the oil as my 2 tsp for the day. Good luck - I know you will do great!

If you go from phase one to regular eating it startles the pancreas. When people say they are going to phase off of the plan that is exactly what they are doing. They go from phase one to phase two, phase two to phase three, etc. This gradually wakes the pancreas up and at this point it is "reset" to help out with the insulin we need from the carbs we eat. Hopefully w/o gaining weight.

Very nice analogy I'm Svelting!

Thank you for all you do!

I have never not taken a bite of cake here and there.
GREAT JOB! you are TOTALLY getting into the new way of looking at your life, which will allow you to keep the weight off forever.
I realized when I got to the point that passing up something like that did not make me feel "panicked" it was a big deal...and you are SO there.
I can tell you (looking back from Phase 4) that once you go into maintenance you will never look at cake the same way. It will always be a kind of, "huh, I used to freak out to eat that stuff. I'm guessing it doesn't taste like that weird memory I have of cake being vital to life...now it just tastes like other food." YAY YOU!!

I second what RO said, if you have the time, then do the phase off. It will make you feel a lot better in the long run.

CONGRATS! Be sure to check out the "traveling on IP" sticky, lots of great ideas in there for making it work. If you check a bag and take some RTDs it can really help. You'll do great, it's all about planning and you are already planning!
