Dieter Tips from an IP Health Coach

Experiment to keep things interesting!

Change things up a bit and get creative with your meals.  Go online and look up low carb recipes, purchase Janeva’s cookbook, take old favorites and add new spices…mix things up so you don’t get bored and give up.  Vegetables can be fun to experiment with too, if you usually eat them raw, try roasting them with different spices and/or steaming them and if you usually cook them, try them raw…it can be nice to eat a cold fresh crunchy veggie on a hot day or at the beach!


Try mixing packages into new flavors!

Have you tried the Dreamsicle yet??  Mix ½ of the Orange drink & ½ of the vanilla pudding with 8 oz of water and shake. Or, how about the double iced cappuccino? Take 1 package of cappuccino drink mix and 8 oz of coffee, shake over ice and enjoy!


Plan Ahead

Dieter plateaus  are often due to a lack of proper preparation. Avoid this pitfall by planning your meals ahead of time. Sunday can be a great day to shop and prepare a complete set of Ideal Protein friendly food options for the week ahead. Preparing your foods in advance, in ready-made packages, is a good way to help control portions, ensure proper eating, and eliminate reasons to cheat when you are tight on time. Remember, preparation is key!

Don’t Skip Meals

To ensure success on your Ideal Protein diet, it’s important that you follow the program as prescribed. Skipping meals or going too long between meals is never okay. In fact, it can work against you. Believe it or not, you actually need to eat and eat properly to lose weight in a healthy and effective manner. If you find yourself often on the go or one not to prepare meals in a pinch, try keeping a store of Ideal Protein foods, such as ready-made shakes, on hand at home, in the car and work. Such a supply can help keep you fueled for weight loss success!
