I HAVE NOT CHEATED. Not once. Not even a little. However, no one is perfect and to be supportive, you must encourage people not to cheat and not rant about them if they do. This is THEIR journey, not yours!

If you want to follow IP you must learn not to cheat. No cheese, no milk, no cheeto's. Everything has to be 0/0/0 or you will be disappointed in your loss. Those of us who have lost massive amounts of weight have not cheated. This is NOT atkins.
OK, I'm done ranting.

Well said, Mary... I was beginning to wonder what was going on... we are either on protocol 100% or we're on it 0%... there is no "in between"..

I agree. I think encouraging not to cheat, and sharing the wisdom of your success is fine, but to each their own.

I've found that I do a lot better staying on track if I don't panic every time I lick the mac and cheese from my daughters lunch off my thumb etc. It is extra fat/carbs etc. it may effect my ketosis, but I have to live with this diet in my life just like everyone else is trying to do, and that amount of stress hurts me more than it helps me.

Everyone is doing great! Just keep trying every day. Try your hardest to stay OP and get back up and dust yourself off after mistakes and keep on trying. You haven't failed until you've given up! I feel like an inspiration quote coffee table book. I'm done now.

I agree completely. Not everyone has the luxury of being perfect.

I haven't cheated with any non IP things but it's not to say I haven't thought about it! I can't wait to order some WF and DaVinci things to help spice up my foods. It is a tough diet. The restrictions are serious. But so is the weight loss!

You can do it! You girls have really got me thinking about the sw cheese curls. I know they have them!

I highly recommend them. They are a generous portion and kinda spicy. I like them a lot. They feel like cheating, to be honest!

Put in a shakeable container and shake until florets are evenly coated.

Put on METAL pan and and bake until browned and crispy, mixing them once or twice during cooking. Takes about 15 minutes.
Thanks!!! I was trying to figure out what I wanted to make as a side for my dinner since I don't have turnips to make the highly recommended fries. I'll be doing this instead!

Sometimes people need tough love. Sometimes people don't want tough love. It's really hard to know... No one should take offense, but be prepared for peoples' feedback, whatever it may be.

Here is a great page... Lots of information. There are five pages. Make sure to get past page 1, which is pretty boring.

MSG causes all sorts of issues with fluid retention - I am shocked and slightly irritated the IP would even consider putting this in food - the artificial sugar is bad enough -- but geez. Not sure about asparagus soup we don't have that at our clinic -- we do have the southwest cheese curls but those are restricted--some coaches don't allow restricted items for the first 3 weeks.

Thanks was going to ask how you make that... I just call them roasted.. but fried sounds so much better.

I don't have a convention oven but I do broil them and they crisp up quite nice... good with chipotle ranch from WF

a while back on this forum the broccoli had been recalled as it had msg in it. haven't heard about any of the other soups mentioned tod asparagus or chicken noodle and beef... wonder where they came from.

What you could do, is slice an onion and put the rings on the cookie sheet with your cauliflower and than use WF chipotle ranch.


As for the cheating, I haven't because I find it is way too important to me to lose the weight and I can't afford to waste my money.

I did like what you said Mary, I know it is hard in the beginning not to cheat but you guys it does get easier and the other thing I have found out about cheating is when it knocks you out of ketosis and you go back in. This is a bad cycle and I have read from Medical people that it is also really hard on your system, your liver, kidneys etc. I know there was a couple of nurses on this site maybe they can comment on this? is what I read true?

Like I said I would love to cheat but I love to have my weight gone more, there is time in the future to have the things (that probably aren't good for us anyway) when we can better process why we want what we do. I think it was Carla that said that sometimes it isn't the food that you cheat with but the taste profile that you are missing. Correct me if I am wrong Carla, so figure out what you are missing, for example ranch dressing and onions... try the wf ranch and have roasted onions or veggies and see if that solves your craving. I wanted pizza I made an IP pizza with IP crepe mix and that did it, it was so good and I didn't have cheese on it and yes I missed it a bit but I loved my bbq chicken with onion pizza anyway.

Just my thoughts, I am not trying to offend anyone, it is just that a cheat puts you back so much that I can't see it worth it. My friend that is doing this diet has been cheating and she can't figure out why she isn't losing as fast as me... I know all our bodies aren't the same but I am pretty sure it is her cheats... Chins up everyone, or if you were like me double chins up

Are you heating the RTD to put in coffee? I notice if I get my RTD too hot and then put it in a "to go" mug which makes it slow to cool down it will get lumpy (which is gross to drink). I have not been able to make the lumps go away once they appear -- I just cannot heat it as hot as I would like. Incidentally this also happens with the cappuccino drink (I have done this twice -- like drinking cottage cheese but I refuse to throw it away since it costs 4 bucks - I just suck it up and drink/eat it...gaggggg)

Seriously?? I have no reactions to MSG, but I do know it is on the no-no list so it seems like a big 'ol double standard for them to even make a product with that!
