Calling all Newbies! IP or IP using Alternatives...Let's do this!
 
Hi there! I'm Linda and I Just started following the IP Protocol 5/21/2014. After seeing the amazing results my friend was having on the program, I knew it was for me. So today is day 4 and I love it! I took a peek at the scale and I'm already 6 lbs down! Whoohoo! I am 100% following the IP methodology but using Alternative products. :)

So far, my days go like this...

Upon waking...Coffee

B: Protein Shake

L: Turkey breast with raw veggies ie... green peppers, cucumbers, radishes, green onion, mushrooms

D: Lean steak with roasted broccoli and cauliflower and a green salad with some chopped fresh veggies. Dressing made with coconut vinegar and a little coconut oil

S: Protein shake

I'm Using Pink Himalayan sea salt liberally on my food

Drinking about 100 oz or more of water each day. Sometimes I use my soda streamer to fizz it up :dizzy: and then add a slice of lemon, and sometimes I drink it just plain. I have to stay close to the potty because boy oh boy, am I am going like a race horse..lol

Vitamins I'm currently taking...
Multi vitamin
Vit D3
Magnesium
Calcium
Potassium
Vit C
Carlson's finest Fish oil

I feel GREAT except today I have a headache probably from my body detoxing. :p

Anyway, I thought it would be a whole lotta fun to get a group of us that have recently started, planning to start, or even re-starting together for added accountability, support, and motivation. So join me and let's get this party started!! :carrot:

Hi everyone! I'm new to IP too this month - started on May 1st and I really haven't lost as much as I'd hope for my best friend's wedding I'm in on 6/21.....I have cheated the last two Sundays but tomorrow I'll do better!! I am on the boards here and there and have gotten some great ideas- I'm running low on the vitamins so I'm wondering what anyone has come up with for alternatives?
TIA :)

Hi Liza! You can do it! I have been using what vitamins I already had so I haven't really looked into perfectly matching them up to the IP ones. Sorry I am not more help on this subject, maybe someone else can chime in. :)

Hi everyone. This is my first post here, so I hope I done mess it up. I started IP 5 weeks ago and lost 16 lbs in the first 4 weeks. I was away last week visiting my son who is a foodie and very over weight. The first 5 days of the visit I went totally nuts eating in resturants with him. I found that the longer I ate like that the worst I felt.
I convinced my son that if he wanted to loss weigh quickly, that IP was the way to go. On the 6th day of my "vacation" he joined a local IP centre and I got back on track.
I know I will not cheat again till I have lost my weight and I know my son will succeed, he is a true warriour in every sense of the word. I called my weight coach today and thanked her from the bottom of my heart for 1. Convincing me to start this journey and 2. For hopefully changing my son's life

Newcomers
Welcome
Please join the daily chat
That is where you'll find all the forum support.
When I joined, I quickly discovered that the knowledge base was in the people "ahead" of me, rather than with the people who were new, like me.
