I'm not doing the IG diet (I'm doing the low-everything diet!) but I wanted to say it sounds like you're so dedicated - especially with all that running and walking! How long did it take you to lose 23lb? I'm only on day 1 of my diet and I so hope it gets easier!2005 2007 2009 2012

I'm sort of combining the low everything diet and the IG diet. I'm eating similarly to you - I don't eat much all day: no breakfast, a yogurt for lunch, pretty much no snacks all day....but then I eat a pretty big dinner because I'm starved! I usually keep well within the sodium guidelines, and like you only eat about 1000-1200 calories a day. I found when I started out on the low everything diet I just wasn't functioning with such little protein, so I eat chicken or fish about 3-4 times a week and have pasta the times in between. I've been making some of the recipes from the IG girl cookbook, and they're not bad. I also snack on strawberries or raspberries in the evening. The one thing I don't do is eat/drink lots of aspartame - I'm just leary of the stuff. I may add some CL to my diet in the week of O, but other than that I don't want to go overboard on it.
I was a big salt eater before too, so this diet is really hard for me. I've never been more aware in my life of the sodium and protein content of food. I always ate what I wanted when I wanted. I've lost about 5 lbs on 3 weeks on this diet - I'm now 125 lbs, which I haven't been since I was a teenager.
