Medifast is an effective weight loss meal replacement program which can help dieters safely lose up to lbs per week. Thanks for adding that, there is a reason why I read your comment. You are being overcharged. Unfortunately, the Ideal Protein Diet falls right into this category, and thus really should be avoided. While there were some other tangible factors in the selection process, and included in the discussion below, these four attributes illustrate the most important factors in the decision making process. Hi Kimberly, I also live in cajun country Baton Rouge where food was created, lol.

This diet has changed my life and I reccomend it to anyone. Just keep the willpower to stay on it and you will see amazing results! I am starting this program on Wed.
Do you have to use their foods? I am pretty knowledgable on protein vs. I would rather use my own food and save the money. Bothell Chiropractic is where I go. I have lost 15 lbs in 5 weeks and have 5 lbs to go.
I am 62 and look and feel really good, although I am hungry all the time. I have decided to stick it out. So Susan, howdid you find a doc. I livein Spokand Wa. I would like to start this diet soon So pleaseget back to me…karen. Hi amy, I was just reading about the ideal protein diet and saw your message. I know it was two years ago,but I live in Washington too and just wondered how you did on it and if you were able to stick to it. I really want to try but boy it seems hard to eat lettuce twice a day, I am afriad Ill get tired of it real quick.
I went to a dr office on Wed and it costs and then about 90 a week. I was just curious how you did on this diet. I am from Washington state as well! I am on day 3 so far I am loving it and have seen people I know change there bodies in such little time! I have been a little tired in the evenings.. But my coach said that by day 4 I would be worn.. To get done rest n your body will bounce back n it will have more energy! I love this diet! Almost 5lbs down in 3 days for me!!!
You need 3 packets a day on face 1 , later you need less packets per day. I am seeing amazing results with my nurse friends, some lost 75lbs, some 65lbs and a few in the lbs range, I lost 35lbs. The doctor said this is the only diet with over 30 years in medical practice that works.
I think that says volumes. My doctor says the same thing. I am on my second day and not doing too bad. Like the food more than I thought I would. I am on it not only to loose weight, but to try to keep sugar under control.
I am a diabetic typeII and he is a heart patient heart attack 2 years ago. Both our doctors are anxious for us to lose weight, and this diet looks right for both of us.
Wish us luck — I will check in in a couple of weeks! My blood sugar was the last time I saw my doctorin January. One week after starting the diet my blood sugar went down to A week later Certain cardiac patients cannot.
I had controlled my diabetes type 2 for 19 years with vegetarian diet and exercise but the morning numbers were creeping up. This diet lowered my morning number from to the first day and then a rapid decrease to now average or lower in the morning. Plus it stays around 95 all day. Also, I walk a few miles a day and before my blood sugar could go down 60 points, now it is staying stable.
No more extreme highs and lows. Lost 11 pounds in 2 weeks. It is based on BMI so we will see how it goes. Hopefully another 30 pounds to be complete. But to not have the diabetes dragon chasing my tail is wonderful. I would rather pay for the foods than drugs to control it.
Also, my blood pressure meds had to be cut in half and will probably be eliminated soon. I am just wondering about the effects of the Ideal Protein products containing Sucralose, which is an artificial sweetener?? Is it acceptable to use in short term doses like this program? I have a high sensitivity to the artifical sweetners and I must say I am not having any problems, I have been on this program for 4 weeks now and have lost In comparison to all of the chemicals and toxins we take in with processed foods, this is minimal.
Also, remember that this is a temporary diet change and that clients are taught to eat for life without the products. Love the Ideal Protein diet!
There is plenty of variety on this diet and they have a good maintenance program. There are 4 phases of the diet where they slowly wean you off of their product to eat real food. Once you have reached your goal and maintained your weight loss, you will know about food combining to ensure you keep off the weight.
You will be eating a bigger meal at breakfast, smaller for lunch and even smaller for dinner. One day a week you can eat whatever you want—anything. That way of eating is something I can live with long term. I have been on this diet for 10 days now. I live in Cajun country, where food was created. Just like the consultant told me, it would take about 5 to 6 days on this diet to get used to it.
I have lost 15 lbs, need to lose 25 more. After the first 6 days, my appetite was satisfied, my taste buds enjoyed the natural flavors of the foods and I have no sense of depression. The more I read up on this diet, the more I agree with the plan. Good weight loss can be achieved, but you really need to follow the plan. I ate a plane salad for lunch yesterday with only olive oil and sea salt.
I can only tell you, I was able to taste every piece of vegetable in it and am looking forward to my meal today. I expect to be on this plan for 2 to 4 more weeks and then have the consultant wean me to a life long diet that maintains this.
One more thing about this diet that I added, I asked the Lord the help me and He has. Thanks for adding that, there is a reason why I read your comment. I started the diet 6 days ago and have already lost over 5 pounds.
Monday I will offically get a weigh in and measure inches lost. Yes the first days were hard, especially day 2 and 3. Now I have my energy back and feel fine and satisfied after meals. One you can be on for months and then never have to diet again. It really teaches how to eat healthy for the rest of your life. Hi Kimberly, I also live in cajun country Baton Rouge where food was created, lol. I see your post was in January. How much did you have to lose?
Have you reached your goal weight? Who better to turn to than the Lord-He cares about every area of our lives!! I am on the diet right now……have tried lots of things on my own…. I have lost 19lbs and 13 total inches in 4weeks on this plan. It is great for me because it stresses not to do heavy exercising the first 3weeks. I recently had hip surgery which i gained alot of weight with and cant do much cardio.
Since it is doctor regulated i feel it is more successful. I am sure there are similar diets and contrary to this post the ingredients etc are clearly posted on the box and the meal plan. Feel free to find a doctor that participates and you will learn alot. Hey Blaine…How is the weight loss going? Went to a talk tonight….. Did you experience any leg cramping in the very beginning??? I just started IP today and have had some leg cramps for about half the day!? I started on two days ago and woke up with a terrible cramp in my calf this morning!
Has been achey for about a half hour. Good variety of foods. Best of all they have coaching videos daily that provide support, information and great recipe ideas.
I agree there should be a nutritional value guide listed on the website. I do know the foods are made from Soy, whey, Protein, and Collagen Isolates so that both carnivores and Vegetarians alike as well as Gluten free needs are acheivable.
Prices are not listed because it is a clinician only Program, and the price can very from clinic to clinic. Some of the food is good, but they have a small variety in comparison to other programs. Do you know approximately what your friends are paying a week and have they been happy with the results? That is supplemented with lots of fresh veg and daily protein for supper. You are being overcharged. But if you are seeing a doctor, they can charge whatever they want.
Pricing can also depend on supplements. There are Ideal protein distributors in the US. Usually, they are within a chiropractic practice. I go to Dr. Kathleen Posey on the North Shore. I should have lost more but I got mixed up with the restricted food.
Not only is my doctor on this program but her nurse is as well…they both lost a tone of weight. This is a very easy program to following, just eat. You will lost weight, just eat. I am thinking aboout starting the Ideal Protein diet. I made an appointment for tomorrow. Are you still pleased with the results.
VIcki you have to obtain the products through a doctor…. You can buy the products, at Dr. Hannon on Clearview in Metairie, is the number, hope this helps,. LOL But thhere is a delicious cappucino Ideal protien mix, and the nice things about their drink mixes is that you can make them with less water, and they become puddings, or, make them with ice to make smoothies and milkshakes.
I am starting the diet this Friday via a friend. Where can I find information regarding the phases so I know what to eat and when? This diet might be expensive but it is the absolute best diet out there. This diet is a Godsend. Lost 20 pounds and have never been this thin since I got married which was 25 years ago. The food taste great and I still go back to the doctor and get some of my favorites so the taste is not a problem like similar diets.
The only negative I can share is in the beginning, the first 3 weeks, I must admit I was hungry.
