Yes, but I just started this program and there is nothing personalized about it. I have the same criteria they give to everyone (maybe only females, I don't know) and there seems to be no accommodation for the fact that I am a runner (~25 miles/week, running marathons, ultra marathons). They have simply told me not to run for 3 weeks. Not feasible in my lifestyle. Help!?

You're an idiot. The first week and large amount of weight loss is water weight. It is a healthy program as you are eating chicken, mean and fish, plus vegetables and other sources of protein, such as their soups, drinks, and other foods.

A quick breakdown of IP for men.
1. Go to protidiet or wonderslim and you can get the foods for half the price.
2. You need three non- restricted foods and one restricted food a day (restricted are those items that have more than 15 carbs per serving, non-restricted foods have less than 15 carbs).
3. You get 2 cups raw or cooked veggies at lunch and dinner ( no starchy or sugary veggies) and lots of lettuce
4. You get 5-8oz of lean protein at dinner...all meats and sea food qualify.
5. Drink water
6. Take a multi vitamin, and potassium suppliment so you don't faint.
7. No dairy, no nuts, no fruit, no bread
8. Under 1000 cals s day and. Under 40 carbs s day.
Good luck.

As a golfer, I used to use IP products as snacks and drinks on the course rather than the regular chips and pop, or HFCS drinks that they offer on the carts. I recently found a much better alternative in Protidiet. The foods taste MUCH better and are half the price! Now available in Canada. Their weight loss protocol I find much more sustainable as they recommend exercise and allow some fruit and dairy.

I hope you will give the diet a few more weeks. I, too, felt lousy the first week and I followed the protocol exactly. In fact, I have followed it exactly for about six weeks and have lost 9 pounds. I only have 20+ pounds to lose and I lose slowly, so a pound or two a week is fine with me. By the third week, I felt energetic, and attributed the sluggishness of the first two weeks to a radical change in eating.

The advice I got was good, I thought: Put off social engagements for the first two weeks so that you adjust to the foods. Then start going out. Your social life won't collapse.

We either go to parties or entertain three nights a week, and I have been able to follow the diet. You might find it helpful to entertain people at your place---if you control the menu, you can follow the diet pretty well. For example, on Friday night, I drank sparkling water at the cocktail hour, served raw veggies with the drinks, served a poached salmon with steamed broccoli and a large tossed salad, and while others had sorbet and coffee for dessert, I had a cup of hot chocolate drink (IP). Plenty of food. Good luck!

Hi BrauchtJ,

I'm really sorry to hear of your recent experience. I've been on IP now for 12 weeks, and have lost 35.6 lbs! I've never felt so good or supported while on a diet. But I know each body is different.

There is a fantastic support group for people following the IP protocol here on SparkPeople:
925361. I do know how isolating it can feel to be on this diet without a support group. This IP Spark Team has made all the difference for me. I joined, around my 4th week on the Program, and it was awesome to be in contact with others who've been on the diet longer and have experienced similar things and can provide suggestions and tips to make it through. I hope you will stop by, introduce yourself and ask any questions you might have.

One thing I noticed in your share that may be causing you to feel unwell when you go out is that you don't eat at all while you're at the party. Depending upon how many hours there are since the last time you ate you may be experiencing low blood sugar/hypoglycemia which can make you feel faint, weak and nauseous. It's important that you eat every 3-4 hours. On IP we work with coaches to monitor your weight loss and food journal to assist you with the process. Are you letting your coach know how you are feeling. S/he may suggest you add more IP packets to your daily intake and more protein for energy.

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions and would like additional support. I wish you great success and JOY! - Bliss!

I found that canned tuna is an awesome low calorie and filling source of protein. 25g and 100 calories in one can. A couple of those a day as snacks, and I'm a quarter of the way there.

IP is a safe phase 4 diet that is medically endorsed with Drs and medical teams. In phase 1 it is a healthy amount of protein based on your personal lean mass, vegetables, lean meat, IP products and supplements. Phase 2 teaches you how to eat a healthy lunch and dinner along with a few IP products. Phase 3 is the start of maintenance, learning the proper portioning for dairy, fruit, complex carbs, protein amounts to protect muscle and not damage organs and calorie counting a balanced diet for the rest of your life. Phase 4 designs the perfect balance for you individually. A balanced diet including the 4 food groups and making sure fitness, protein and calorie intake a daily routine in order for long term success. Every IP clinic has a free open house that discusses in detail the program and always discloses price, ingredients, phases and Q&A. Look into this if you would like to loss the weight, keep it off, learn a new way of eating to fight disease and maintain your health.

hey @BRAUCHTJ... honestly Idk anything about the "Ideal Protein" diet but I think you should have stopped since the moment you realized that you had lost 11.6lb in a week :S that's just too much :S and everything else.. it doesn't sound healthy at all, you're not supposed to feel that way lol I mean... I really don't know why you would even consider not quitting :S
But anyway, I think counting calories, (and carbs, fats, & proteins) is easier than following specific diets. and I totally understand you... it is really hard not to "break your diet" when you have to go out with friends and stuff... what I do is actually the opposite of what you do, I try to eat less during the day, and when I'm with my friends, bf or whatever I just eat "normally", that way you're not eating more than you should and also... people will stop asking why you're not eating and stuff... so everyone is happy :)

That's the only thing that has worked for me, maybe you should try it. emoticon

I am about to complete my 2nd week on Ideal Protein on Monday. I lost 11.6 pounds the first week, not sure if I lost any this week. I don't feel like I have. My main complaint is how I feel. I've never felt so horrible in my life. I did the South Beach diet for about 5 months and felt wonderful. I thought this would be similar. But you can't eat anything on this diet, which is screwing me up. I am a very social person and I thought well, I'll have something before the party and then not drink/eat anything at the party. Well, in the past two nights, I've had 2 parties. I had some turkey at the party last night with some raw veggies (can't have dressing) and that didn't do much for me; I got hungry and frustrated. Oh well I thought... but tonight I had a meal at 3pm and went to the party tonight at 4. they were roasting a pig, so I thought I'd be able to eat that, but the roasting went wrong and everyone had food except me. all the veggies were mixed with a dairy dressing and all the other meat had been marinated in marinade with sugar. I got super light headed, I felt sick, and I got really frustrated because everyone was asking me why I wasn't eating or drinking anything and I had to explain to everyone this stupid diet I'm on. I just felt so out of place and like I shouldn't be there. I feel so isolated on this diet. The worst part is my anxiety is through the roof. I used to suffer from panic attacks, but haven't had one in a couple years. On day 4 of this diet, I suffered a panic attack and since then my anxiety has been uncontrollable. I had another panic attack on Wednesday and tonight my heart was acting up again! I just can't seem to control it. I'm worried because I wonder what this diet is doing to my heart. Is ketosis ok?? really? I've done a lot of research and found contradictory material. I so desperately wanted this diet to work - I expected this diet to work - and my one weigh-in shows I can lose weight on it. But just before I started it, I thought... no other diet has really ever gotten me to my goal, why would this one? Well, what do you know... tonight I seriously considered quitting this next week. I'm not sure I am strong enough to deal with how horrible this makes me feel, both physically and emotionally. The food tastes like dog poop too. I'm reaching out to see if anyone else has had these same issues. Does anyone have any suggestions? I need to know if this diet is safe - because right now, it doesn't feel like it is.

I've been losing inches rapidly by keeping my carbs under 100 carbs and my protein over 100 grams. Seems to be working fairly well, though my weight hasn't been dropping as much as I'd like it to. Then again, my clothes feel a lot better on me, so that's awesome.

I am a petite woman - and started the diet in May of 2012 - by August 2012, I lost 17 lbs - that averaged about 2 lbs a week. I had no trouble with the diet - I was down to 112 lbs - but more importantly my cholesterol went from 214 (I take two medications) to 166 - I am now 117 lbs (due to Thanksgiving & Christmas and not keeping to the maintenance protocol - my fault - I am back on the IP diet until I get back down to the 112 lbs. I am going to add to the IP protocol - the 8 hour plan for 2-3 days a week - to cleanse my system. It is the only diet (and I have tried them all) that has been so consistent in weight loss, and so beneficial for my health. I highly recommend it.

I have not tried it but have found that for me, less carbs are better. I do not use the standard 50% carbs formula. I eat 35% from carbs, 35% from protein, and 30% healthy fats. I try to get most of my carbs from fruit and vegetables. Very little grains, in fact most of the grains that I eat are pseudo cereals. Amaranth, quinoia, millet, and faro just to name a few. I eat more fish and less meat. A good meal for me is 3oz of ceviche with some raw onion and one third of an avocado. Then an arugula salad with all kind of vegetables, some strawberries and almond slivers with salsa as a dressing. I do not use table sugar or any natural or artificial sweeteners. I have found that eating this way for me keeps me alert, active, and not craving food all day.

Weight Watchers Food Scale

Do you know how Weight Watchers Food Scale work? ok. Let me try to tell you. All food intake must be controlled at all times, and calories must be accurately calculated. So for this practice to be effective, all members should have a Weight Watchers food scale, or a special kind of calculator that can keep track of your caloric intake. In addition to the Weight Watchers scale, a member is aided with a recipe book.

The procedure is simple. Before consuming a food item, one must take note of the item's "points." These points are assigned and developed by experts at Weight Watchers, and they depend on the nutritional content of the food. To date, there are over 450 common food items in the Weight Watchers point book. For instance, a slice of wholemeal toast is equivalent to 2 points.) So before consuming a food item, one must weigh it first to ensure that all the points jibe with those found in the recipe book. Watch the Weight Watchers Food Scale product now at

I am have been on Ideal Protein for 3 weeks and have lost 15 lbs. For me it is easy to stick to and, once I figured out which foods I liked, I have been happy with the meals. I never really wanted to go low carb, but I have insulin resistance, PCOS, and take medicines that complicate my metabolism, so I finally decided to give it a try. I've been very pleased with how effective it is.

I have just started the Ideal Protein Plan. This past Wednesday was my first day and so far so good. I am going to stick to it to the letter and see what happens after one week. It is easy to stick to, for me, I don't have any cravings and I don't seem to have a problem with the water, but the weather here has been very hot so drinking anyway. I would love to know if anyone else is on this and how are you doing? I have talked to a few people who have tried this and they all say that it is easy to stick to. I love vegetables so that is not a problem for me. I have a vaca trip coming up soon and I am worried about that. But it is 5 weeks from now and if all goes well in the 5 weeks before I go away, it will motivate me to "be good"

So please let me know how you are doing on this diet and how long you have been on it and how much did you lose the first week?

I have been on Ideal protein now for 14 months and still going strong. I have loss 164lbs. Make sure you are getting all of your salt in because if you don't your BP might be low or your electrolytes might be low. Make sure you are getting your cups of veggies in a day along with at least 64oz of water (more if possible). Have you checked out 3fatchicks, there are several guys who are killing this program, one has loss 92 lbs in 12 weeks

@Lanster, I still haven't looked into the plan, but if you are feeling crummy, I would eat some good carbs like beans and veggies. Too low of carbs is not good. Carbs give you energy and without enough you will feel like you've been run over by a steam roller. Been there, done that! Hope this helps.

I have been on the IP diet for 4 weeks now. I have lost ten pounds and I need to lose five more. I honestly have not felt very well on it. I am still feeling weak and not thinking very well. I am a HS counselor so I have to be able to think quickly and acutely. I am questioning whether this is right for me. I actually added a few foods this week which is why I don't think I lost weight, but I have felt some better. I haven't added a lot, but enough to not lose. So I question how quickly the weight will come back? Probably pretty darn quick. I am weighing in today and I am nervous as you get scolded when you get off the plan. I don't need that!
Although you lose quickly I seriously do not feel that this is a healthy diet, emoticon

It looks like just another low carb diet approach to me. Which can work for some people, but honestly, it's not necessary, even though the site says:

" long as sugar is being consumed, the body is not burning fat"

I get the principles they're getting this from (insulin blah blah blah) but to think that eating any sugar is going to automatically make you not burn fat is a biology fail.

I've never used it, but I have my doubts. Any "diet" that focuses on one variable (protein, carbs, fat) usually doesn't take overall nutrition into consideration.

When you visit the their website, the front page has a link to "business opportunities". That certainly comes across as being more concerned about them making money than helping people obtain a healthy lifestyle.

But that's just my opinion. A good balanced diet is the healthiest way to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
