Ideal Protein - Week 1 Continued

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

I just put together my order for next weeks food. I go in on Thursday to weigh in and pick up the next weeks worth of food products. Here's how that works: In phase one of the program I have to eat 14 regular IP foods and 7 restricted foods. You can only have 1 restricted food per day. Restricted foods are thinks like soy chips, chili, bars, soya nuts, soya puffs, oatmeal, and pancake foods. Regular IP foods are yogurts, puddings, drinks, soups, omelet, and cereal foods. All in all - a good line up. Looking forward to the next week worth of foods.

This week has been going just fine. My IP lady said that I may be hungry at first and mentioned that there could be headaches - check and check. That is gone now though. I must focus on getting enough water though - perhaps that will assist in moving my food along ;-)

I went to my freezer to see what we had to eat for suppers coming up - hmmm.... not alot in there that is considered on program. I have premade meatballs, lightly breaded fish, premade burgers - all a no go. I took out the roast and the shrimp. Going to have to pick up some fresh - not premade - meats on Friday.

Fridge is looking ok though - lots of veggies. Hey - I made something pretty tasty today for supper. I found a "rice" recipe where you use cauliflower and grate it and then cook it in a pan (don't add water) over medium heat. Worked pretty good - ended up making "fried" rice with veggies and eggs. I don't know if eggs are on program. I have to look that one up.

Well - toodles all! Be Well.

    Good Luck Lovebug313! I too started on IP about 2 weeks ago. The first week, I lost 4.8 lbs and inches. the first two days I had headaches but after that I am fine. Second week, I didn't gain or lose, but I lost inches all over. It was because I had a glass of wine, eat a cookie and didn't workout. I am on my third week and am trying to stick to the diet. I eat salad for lunch/dinner and don't feel hungry.

    I wish you all the best. You are on the way to a wonderful future.

    Thanks Steffy_33 for your comments. I've done a few things before and have gotten pretty good at keeping the weight that I've lost off (I did Herbal Magic and learned so much from them!). Really just need the one-on-one that I hope to get from my IP lady until I lost the next 20-30lbs. emoticon

    I really wish you all the best with your new program...
    But you have to do it until the end....Phase 4...
    I don't want to discourage you but i did Ideal protein 3 years ago...i lost 60 pounds in 4 months...just to gain in all back when i stopped. And i stopped because it was getting really hard on my system to miss so many food groups...

    I hope for you that everything will work out just wasn't the right thing for me...

    Wish you all the best!
