This was my first weigh in session, and I lost 5.4 pounds in a week! I think by mixing up the foods AND being strict about not cheating is why I succeeded. It's also encourgaing to some of the readers of this blog, and friends of mine that have said IP simply is not affordable. It is expensive, but it does work. HOWEVER, using these products seems to work too and is about half the price. Now, I am wierd and decided that I wanted to keep "1 " true IP food/day because I simply can't find protein jello or chips that I like (unrestricted).... so here's some tips.
Quest Protein Bar- $2.08/ each opposed to Ideal Protein bar- $4.25 each*
Muscle Milk Light ready made shake- $2.52/each opposed to Ideal Protein ready made shakes $5.25 *
* these prices reflect ordering box of 24 bars/ Amazon and case of 24 drinks/Amazon. If you have Amazon Prime, these items ship free.
Product Reviews- While I like the IP shake better, Muscle Milk Light does the trick too. Good warmed for hot cocoa. Quest Bars- So far, I have ordered brownie and cookie dough. LOVE the cookie dough, as is. SO good. The brownie I HAVE to warm up, to enjoy otherwise it tastes too chewy to me.
I also joined a FB group called Ideal Protein Alternatives, so many friendly people with such great recipes and advice!
