AND, is there a chocolate drink similar to IPs? I have been using Proti-thin hot chocolate.
TY! Maggie
Nashua has a caramel cereal bar from ProtiDiet.

I've been drinking ProtiDiets Hot Chocolate and it's dang good, too.

I tried IP bc of a back injury. I have 2 slipped discs and am an RN. I gained 32 pounds with the second injury and needed to get rid of the weight to help the spasms stop. I attempt working out but continue to have numbing issues in my legs. Its lessened significantly so I planned on some physical training at my gym.

Some colleagues sent me a forum link suggesting products that were similar...

IP premixed shake vs EAS advantEdge carb control shake
calories: IP 100 EAS 110
Protein: IP 15G EAS 17G
Carbs: IP 4G EAS 4G
Sugar: none

the other was a bar
IP double choc vs Pure Protein choc deluxe
Calories: IP 150 PP 180
Carbs: IP 17G PP 17G
Fat: IP 4.5G PP 4.5G
Sugar IP 10G PP 2G

Unfortunately this is all that Ive heard of for alternatives and have no idea how comparable or effective they are.

Someone else had mentioned Nashua nutrition, specifically Protithin line. I havent purchased anything yet.

Please share any alternative advice you may have on products that have worked for you. I simply cant foot an IP any longer and moreso to gain any weight back://

And here is a link to site with the Ideal Protein Nutritional sheets and some suggestions for alternatives:

I am loving the brand teraswhey. I use a plain whey. But their flavored powders are sweetened with stevia. You can buy this brand at Whole Foods or on Amazon

If that link does not work again then google this phase:

ideal protein shake nutritional information

8 or 9 items down on search results you should see a result titled Alternatives to Ideal Protein Diet.

Hope that helps.

My coach gave me these names as alternatives that they recommend for maintenance (that's their sales gimmick - give us the names once we get to maintenance...not sure if can be used throughout): isopure protein powder - 2 scoops provide 210 calories, 1 g fat, 0 carbs, 0 sugar, 50 gm protein. That's a lot of protein. Also, premier protein and pure protein ( we already knew)

Has anyone been using Lowery's bacon curls? They are microwavable pork rinds.
Full bag is 210 calories, 7g fat, 3.5g carbs, 35g protein. A full bag is 3.5 servings.

I really like them but only downfall is the sodium is 310mg per serving.

Any reason why these can't be used as a nonrestricted?

Well for one, because they're pork rinds. Not exactly a healthy food.

But for IP purposes, they should not be used as one of your 3 meal packets because they are an incomplete protein. Pork rinds are basically collagen, so they don't give you the complete amino acids your body needs.

Thanks so much for responding. I could never be a hunter as I am in denial about where my food comes from! Not sure I will be able to eat these now! I know I knew subconsciously but now I really know!

My clinic sells these and says to use them like an unrestricted.

Thanks again!

Re: the oatmeal cookies made with the butterscotch pudding. I have used protidiet products of BOTH puddings and the oatmeal and they turn out fabulous!!

Ooooh!! Thanks for that reminder!! I have some oatmeal packets but need to order some butterscotch pudding in my next order from Nashua Nutrition!!

I have been making cookies using the Proti thin Sweet roll mix. It has become one of my favorites!!

Just curious since you have a coach and seem like you are doing the traditional IP. Are there a lot of people who sell IP on this forum? I see people in the middle of their weight loss going on about becoming an IP coach.
