Hi Everyone,

I'm Michelle and I joined the forums a few days ago after reading about the IP diet.

I have two close friends that achieved amazing results and I am really interested.

I'm a Face Painter in Maryland (hence the user name) and I am a stay at home mom as well.

I have a request:

Can anyone provide the supplements breakdown? I found the Natura Muti-Vita vs. Equate Complete Multivitamin sheet, but I was wondering where I could find information on the other required supplements.

I ask because I would like to know more information before I begin the protocol with my local clinic.

Thanks so much!

~Michelle

Good chilly morning, everyone!!!

I have missed keeping up with everyone that last few days and hope to catch up this morning. I've had a really crazy week with work, evening events, migraines, and just life itself.

PS. It is a lot easier to stay true and on program with the daily support I get from here. I've missed that the last 4 days.

Welcome Michelle! The required supplements are 2 multi-vitamins a day, 1 - Potassium Calcium, and 4 - Cal-Mag. The optional supplements are 3 - Fish Oil, Digestive Enzymes, and 2 - Anti-Oxidants. Let me know if you need more details.

Good morning everyone! Hope everyone has a great weekend... Woke up to a dusting of snow this morning... Not going to let that get me down! The dogs are seeming to enjoy it! :)

Thank you, EatAnts!

Do you know if there is a nutritional profile available for the supplements?

Best regards,
~Michelle

SNOW!!!! I am sooooo not ready for that. I am so cold since losing weight and I dread the winter snow. We usually do not get snow until the middle or late November, but it seems to last forever. I hate the icy country roads that I have to travel every day. I want sun and to swim in my pool every day. I am going to try to live in today and do this winter "One Day at a Time". :D

Welcome Michelle and good luck to you on this plan. You will find that there is amazing support here. I didn't find this site until I had been on the plan for 3 months and I am always happy that someone gets here at the start of their journey.:carrot:

Here is the info I have on the mandatory supplements:
Cal-Mag
Vitamin D 260 IU
Calcium Citrate 600 mg
Magnesium Citrate 300 mg
Zinc Citrate 20 mg

Potassium Calcium
Potassium Bicarbonate 800 mg
Calcium Carbonate 200 mg

The vitamins from IP are much more absorb-able than other vitamins. I do recommend them despite the expense. I tried for a week using my GNC ones and definitely did not feel as well.

Good morning everyone!
Finally had a chance to catch up on the last few days of posts. Congratulations to all the victories with WIs and NSVs!!! For those having a challenging week I just want to echo "hang in there!!" I truly believe the body has to have some time to readjust. Compared to other diets, this one really does go quickly.
As to the cost, it seems pricey at first glance, but I figure with the amount I am saving on eating out, ordering in pizza and wine consumption (wine is WAY more expensive in Canada than the US), I think I'm ahead of the game! :rofl:
Dave, I love your reflections on food memories, mind of matter etc. :thanks: It never ceases to amaze me how indifferent I have become to so many foods.
Oh dear, I've forgotten who posted this, but the story of mom's inspiration to 9 year old daughter was wonderful! I am so sad when I see young people overweight. I've always felt I've struggled with my weight, and I wasn't nearly as big as some of these kids are today. It is such a burden to take into adulthood.
Rosemary, I so hear you about the cold! I get chilly so much quicker since I've been on this diet (less insulation?). Thankfully it doesn't get really bad here on the west coast, though they are calling for a snowier than normal winter. I guess I'll take chilly over chubby any day!
Finally, we hosted our "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" last night. It was a big success. Plenty of healthy food for everyone and I was perfectly content with my prawn and asparagus stirfry and salad. Good company and conversation was enjoyed by all.
Hope everyone has a great IP weekend and remember, we get an extra hour tomorrow morning!

You need 20 days and 20 posts. Then go to CP and there should be an Edit Signature. You put them in there! HTH!

Morning all! I am back to work today, and my little man comes home from his grandparents today. Can't wait to see him!

Have a great Saturday!

Lesley 11-06-2010 11:57 AM

Morning everyone!

I have a question about a sauce I found....Its called Manzanah Chawah All Natural Thai Sesame Dressing & Marinade.

Here is the breakdown:

Ingredients:
-Naturally brewed Tamari soya sauce
-Canola Oil
-Red Wine Vinegar (a no no I think!)
-sesame oil
-honey
-chilies
-garlic
-spices

The nutritional value is:

Cal - 123g
Protein - 1.3g
Fat - 11.2g
Carb - 4.2g

(Per 2 TBSP serving) which in stats, kicks olive oils butt!!

Suggestions??? It is fantastic on stir fry and I would eat it everyday if I could...lol

Good morning all,

Pumkyparry thanks for the pancakes out of the Crispy Cereal just tried it this morning it was really good.

I had my anniversary last night we went to see RED, but before hand it got hectic with the kids, so I missed making dinner for me and DH. We ended up going out to a Chinese buffet mainly because we were now pressed for time. I tried to make sure and not eat anything that was breaded or loaded with carbs (e.g. rice, deserts), however the meats did have sauce on them. Any way I don't think after dinner that my stomach agreed with all the food, usually I would have loved it, and some of the food was good. It just seemed like none of it satisfied my hunger, so I just decided that I was going to not go back and try to find something else at the buffet and just be satisfied with what I already ate. So today I am back on plan and feeling so much better (probably psychological). :D

I hope you all have a good weakened.
