Are there any Ignite success stories?
I am very interested in starting the ignite nutrition program. However, it seems to be much higher in calories than what I've been eating and am afraid of putting on any of the weight I've worked so hard to take off. Are there any success stories out there? I don't want to spend such a ridiculous amount of money on specialized protein powder etc. only to pack on the pounds and throw it away later.MissMaryContrary by:
Ask me in 21 days! :) Also, if you are worrying about the calories do realize that the bulk of the food aren't very calorie dense. This diet is a somewhat less strict (and in some ways more strict) version of Tim Ferris' slow-carb diet and many people have reported success with that diet. Just do a Google search on "Tim Ferris' Slow Carb" and see what you can find. I have a feeling the Ignite diet will yield similar results if follow as designed.
I have been on ignite for 1 week today. This sounds crazy but I have gone from 170.4 to 164.4 just this week! I'm assuming some of it is water weight but I have NEVER, EVER gotten these results with any other program. In fact, when I started ignite, my goal was just to get healthy. I felt that I was lacking in nutrition because I kept getting sick with cold after cold after cold. I haven't been counting calories (just following ignite recipes) and I haven't even started the workouts yet.
I, like you, have been on strict 1,200 -1,300 calorie diets. When I started ignite I was very surprised by the increase in calories as well as the portion sizes. As the week progressed, the diet got easier and easier. I started feeling the results of a nutrient-dense diet and I feel good inside. I have to say, even though the "evil 6" make this diet seem very strict and throw out a lot of foods...it has been so much easier than counting and documenting every calorie I ingest. I'm not starving like I am on other diets! I love that!
Like I said before, I wasn't expecting big results on the scale so imagine my surprise when I saw that I had dropped 6 pounds this morning. I'm assuming 3 pounds of it is water weight and 3 pounds of it is actual fat. I'm stoked with the results!
I've been alternating the shakes in the morning, and eating one of the ignite salads everyday for lunch. For dinner, I choose one of their dinner options (which is usually low-carb). During the day, for snacks, I usually bring an apple and some carrots or celery. I eat the apple between breakfast and lunch. I eat the carrots or celery between lunch and dinner. I haven't been combining the fruits/veggies with almond butter for my snacks. Like you, I was just scared I was going to ingest too many calories...especially since I haven't started the workouts yet. That might change though! We'll see how things go!
