Day 4 on IP
 
Soooo this is where im at. Day 1 awesome, Day 2 stomach flu, Day 3 awesome, Day 4 Awesome. Sounds great right? Well I feel super fit today for some weird reason. I dont think I have hit ketosis yet. When I had the flu I was vomiting and couldnt keep a thing down. I had half of a can of plain tomato soup, it was that or nothing...terrible I know but when ur sick it sucks! Im kinda down today. How can you tell when youve hit ketosis? Im trying really hard. Im 175 and my goal is 135...help! Thx guys

Give it 4 full days. Your pee smells, your breath might. And you will be less hungry

Everyone's weight loss is different, but 3 months is not unseasonable - if you average 3lbs a week for 12 week, that's 36lbs

Stay strong, its 7.21am here on a Sunday, day 11, and I am AWAKE this morning at 5.30 - cant tell you the last time I freely got out of bed at that time on a weekend!!!!

Keep 100% OP and you will watch those pounds drop!

Cheers/S....

I am on day seven of IP, have my first weigh tomorrow. I feel really good. I thought that I would be sluggish or hungry all the time. But I have not. So thankful!!!!!!!!!!!

I am on Day 4 also. I had some "hunger" yesterday but awakened feeling good this a.m. My stomach is not growling, so I don't think I am truly hungry.

The problem for me is my history of eating habits. When I am going about my day, those times when I would have snacked or eaten inappropriately are triggers for me. I am trying to stay aware of this and drink my water or a hot infusion when I feel that compulsive urge. It is going to take me some time to move to a new approach to food.

Other than those moments, it is going pretty well. I like the structure of the IP plan as I don't need to be making a lot of food decisions at the outstart. It takes some of my "crazy" about food out of the equation. I am dedicated to sticking with it and that is keeping me fired up through the beginning.

I too like that fact that most of my food decisions are made for me. On other programs you spend so much time thinking about food, planning what you are going to eat, weighing, measuring, it drove me crazy. On this plan I know exactly what I am going to have. For those new to the program, you feel really energized after a month or so, before that you may have some ups and downs. If you breath is really bad eat a few celery sticks and have a glass of water, it does help.

fer me the hard part is no gym...walking doesnt do much for me lol

Full To the gills
 
I am on day 4 of IP too and I can't eat anymore food. I was told I would be less hungry, but I can't finish my dinner I'm so full. Do I need to set the remaining 1/2 cup of veggies aside and finish them later? Or can I be done with them now. My program does the snack after dinner only, so I still have one meal to go. Is the 2 cups of veggies 100% no wiggle room or can I decrease a little so I am not uncomfortable eating too much for my stomach?

I'm only on day 2 of IP and i'm also really full with the meals that I have to eat the veggies.. and I'm already so sick of lettuce. The only veggies I like are cauliflour and broccoli. If I eat only those two vegetables is that OK? I also get really full and can barely finish the 2 cups of veggies.
It may help if you eat your snack between lunch and dinner, thats what I do and it works out perfect.

You can spread your veggies out through out the day as long as you are getting in your 4 cups. I sometimes will have a cup as a morning snack, a cup for lunch, a cup for an aftermoon snack and then another cup with dinner and then save my ideal protein snack for the evening while watching tv. I usually have it an hour before I go to bed.

I just finished day 2. I'm ok with breakfast, but the other meals are too much food for me. I'm spreading out the veggie servings with feedings every 2 hours. I can only eat half of the IP foods as well. I had to throw out half of a pudding because I was too full and didn't think it would keep over night.

Hi. I felt terrible the first two day. Very nauseas no vomiting tho..I do think you can reach your goal of 40 lbs biased on what I have seen and researched. I never tested for ketosis but did have the metallic taste in my mouth. Scientifically, if you follow protocol...it is hard not to be in ketosis. Good luck
