    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!

    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.

    You gals are doing fantastic! Keep up the good work!!!
    !!! Questions?? Check out the NEW and improved Complete Index !!!

    Private Messages are NEVER the best way to get in contact with me quickly. You will always hear from me in the forums much faster.

    PLEASE post swaying questions in the forums ONLY.

    PLEASE PLEASE stop sending me very long lists of questions via PM; I will not answer them and will simply have you repost in the forums.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE stop sending me messages that are simply copies of things you have already posted in the forums.

    And PLEASEx4 stop sending me the same message again and again until I answer.

    Let's reserve PM's for technical issues and people who have very personal private issues. That way I can help more people much more quickly.
