I am 42 years old and weigh 230 lb. I have minimum 80 lbs to lose. I have been steadily gaining weight since 19 years old, except that within the past 8 months I gained 30 pounds, which is not "steady" but rather an alarming jump. It happened while trying to diet...not only I didn't lose any weight but gained 30 lbs!!

Basically my eating is out of control, I am out of control, and so I am ready to take this step. I like about this diet the fact that my own decisions (which I don't trust) are taken out equation and I know precisely what I have to eat, how much, how it should be prepared, and when.

Let's hope for the best!
I know how you feel Learning to Fly! The first week was the hardest. It does get easier day by day. Some days are longer than the others...

I have found this forum very helpful. So keep checking in!

You don't want to mess with kidney infections.

Also, unfortunately edamame is not allowed in P1 :-(
Thank you Anna!

Hi there! I'm a newbie -- on day two of IP. Day one went by just fine. I worked that night, and I'm a bartender. I had to stop myself a few times from grazing food, or remembering to refuse a shot from a customer. I wasn't trying to cheat -- it's more habit. But the working distracted from any hunger I had.

Does anyone know how to make any veggie chips that stay on IP plan? I came into this fairly new to most veggies. All the ones I did eat are not on plan!

You can make zucchini and yellow squash chips with a mandolin slicer and your oven! Slice them thin, season, and bake at the lowest temp your oven can muster for about an hour, flip and bake another 30-50 minutes until they're crisp. Just remember to measure how many slices are in a cup before you bake, even very dehydrated they still count toward your veggie intake (at whatever the measure was before dehydrating)

I am new to IP as well - started on 9/12. I had my first weigh in yesterday and was down 7.6 lbs which made me happy. I've tried many diets and always gained the weight back. I feel very confident about this diet, however. My friend lost 80 lbs on IP and looks fantastic! Good luck!

Smile Got through the first week!

Hi everyone! I'm new to IP and just finished my first weigh in yesterday. I am down 7.6 lbs which is awesome! The cravings are almost completely gone and I'm not starving all the time anymore. I'm having a hard time getting all my veggies in during the day. I don't like most veggies so any suggestions on how you all are getting yours in would be helpful. Does anyone blend them into their drink mixes?

Have a great day!
