I would like to anticipate the "treat" all day, but I've been using them at lunch instead.
My coach has suggested I have the restricted whenever I want, so for the most part I normally have one every night before bed. Usually a bar or the dill poppers.

For the last week or so, I have switched it up and am having the bar for lunch as I love the cappucino before bed, and I havent seen any difference whatsoever

Looking forward to receiving some proper coaching!

Oh yum yum yum, I just tried the chicken patty.

I took one bite and realized it tasted a lot like egg foo young with chicken. So I mixed a bit of soy sauce, water, splenda, greep onions, and a dash of sesame oil, used it as a topping/dip and these patties were WONDERFUL!!

I would appreciate any advise. Thanks!!

i use the "ultimate woman" multivitamin from vitamin shoppe or vitamin world if you have one near you. if not, i've also used "Multi For Her" nature made brand from wal mart before (the only one without sugars). it's not as close, nutritionally, as the vitamin shoppe or world ones though. I've noticed that i'm getting ALOT of iron from the food alone, so you may want to get one without iron, if possible. they have cal mags at wal mart or target. i get "calcium, magnesium, and zinc" nature made brand.. i take 3. the serving sizes on the bottles are for people with a "normal" diet... just make sure you are getting as close to 100% of daily values as possible. i did ALOT of research on these in the beginning the best (financially and nutritionally) are going to be the vitamin shoppe multivitamins.. walmart/target cal mags.. and unfortunately, you HAVE to get the IP potassiums. there's nothing else like it.

I am in the SW corner of the state. I think you guys have had alittle more rain than us. Too bad we weren't closer I'd come take those cheddar ridges off your hands.

Also, look at other measures such as the inches you have lost, and how your clothes fit.

Do your best and stay happy. Glad you told your coach what you did
that's crazy. You and I have similar numbers. I'm 5'3; i started heavier than you - and my coach wants to see 3 on average! In fact I'm a little under 3 right now but he was very encouraging yesterday. Just hang in there!

OK here's what I found out about vitamins (and yes I blogged it) to be able get close to the IP ones, here's what I take:
Women's One a day (2xday) come in a bottle of 100 cost $8ish=50 days
Natural something Cal/Mag/Zinc (2x day) come in a bottle of 100 cost about $5ish = 50 days
Potassium (they use bicarbonate) gluconate: now this is where it gets tricky. Their actual potassium intake is 332mg (out of that 800mg potassium calcium pill), Potassium Gluconate ends up containing 90mg per pill, so to balance it out, or get extremely close, you're looking at 3 pills per day. One bottle contains 100 pills, so you get a little over a month's supply. One bottle costs about $5.
There ARE still detriments that you'd be missing however, and that comes down to whether or not it is worth it to you. So far I've had no ill side effects from the vitamins i've been taking, but here's what I'm missing:

Iodine (as potassium iodide) - I use table salt to get the iodine content up (was missing 76ug)
Selenium (as selenium citrate) - tuna/salmon and meat have this
Molybdenum (as molybdenum citrate) - The minimum daily molybdenum requirement is not known, but a recent study suggested that as little as 25 mcg may be sufficient. (A basic way to absorb your daily need of molybdenum is by drinking hard tap water.
Read more: http://www.livestrong.com/article/24...#ixzz1yMzEQsC4)
Vanadium (as vanadium citrate) We don't know exactly how much vanadium people require, but estimates range from 10 to 30 mcg daily. (To realize how tiny this amount is, consider that it's about one millionth of the amount of calcium you need.) - naturally occurring in poultry, specifically breast meat of chicken, but also in egg yolk and dark meat of chicken in lower quantities.

So those are what I am deficient in, and I know that meat solves 2/3 deficiencies, and I eat more meat than I had ever eaten, in my life. The molybdenum is my one thing that I need to watch for, but since I make my shake and coffee with tap water...think I got it covered.

The End!

There's a few recipes for the white cheddar ridges out there - one intriguing one has you crush them into 'breadcrumbs', then coat asparagus in egg whi

This asparagus recipe is yummy! I made it last week.

I hope it stops before my "woman" doctor's appointment at the big military hospital this afternoon (parking stinks). I want them to schedule me for a glucose test to test for insulin resistance. Anyone have this? What are your symptoms? My sister has it and is on metmorfin, and we are very similiar.
I have IR and it is related to my PCOS. I don't know if I had any symptoms of that alone, besides blood work. I am so anxious to go back to my "woman doctor" and have lab work done, but that isn't till March. She is going to be so shocked though and I can't wait!!

BTW, I quit taking my metformin before starting IP. It made me so ill that I just figured things would work out and they did, I got a cycle (just one, but that is okay!)

90% of the time I have my restrict as my evening snack. And it has not had any affect on my loses. Actually for me, I find when I eat my restrict at night I don't wake up hungry and don't have my tummy growling and waking me up either.
