Many people are sensitive to dairy. What Ignite does is it removes many potential food sensitivities from the diet for 21 days, kind of a detox time. After that, you can add in the foods, but not too much (the balance stage). The calcium in milk is good for you, but many people have problems digesting it. Hopefully this helps. Also, check out the "Why no dairy?" article on the nutrition resources page.
It depends on how much you are using, really. Thoroughly read the article about why no sugar? on the resource page. Basically, you are not supposed to have more than 20 grams of sugar in one meal.
Not that I know of...just keep track mentally until it resets?
I just bought some, haven't tried them yet. I have tried other brands that are 0 points on Ignite. Generally, they taste pretty good, but aren't super moist. Again, though, I haven't tried this exact brand yet. I will comment back when I do if I remember!
I use the liquid coconut milk, it worked well in the recipes I tried. Especially the smoothies.
There are organic ketchups out there too without too much sugar. They taste exactly the same, but are better for you!
I can post mine for you if you want! I started Ignite April 1st, and am now in the balance stage. I have so far lost 11 pounds in about a month, down from 167 to 156. It was hard to keep up with the program because friends and family were not doing it, but I ended up getting through it and it was well worth it! I feel healthier, have more energy, and overall feel better about myself.
I am currently doing cardio sculpt. I have not been sticking with it every day, but most days. I really lost the weight doing the Ignite nutrition program along with cardio sculpt. Cardio sculpt is fun because it is a different trainer each day, and you are doing different things each day. Also, it switches videos after about a month so you get all new videos to do, which makes it less boring.
Not that I know of...they are trying really hard to promote it, it seems. It is most jarring after the meditation video, where Briohny says you can keep going if you want, and then all of a sudden the commercial comes on...
Amount is not really the biggest deal...I would say a handful? I think they suggest like 21 almonds or something as a snack choice.
Depends on the sugar level...shouldn't be over 20 grams for an entire meal. Also, make sure there is no dairy. Then it seems like you would be safe.
The most important thing to do is not eat the Evil 6. If you get hungry again, make sure that you are actually hungry and not just thinking you are, or having an upset stomach or something. The more important thing for Ignite is quality of the food you are eating, not necessarily quantity. Thus, you are allowed to have snacks. I often turn to an apple or something like that as a snack.
I sadly discovered on Chipotle's website that they add soybean oil to like everything, including the meats, beans, and rice. This bummed me out! Will have to save it for the Ignite phase.
Not entirely sure if this is acceptable or not, but I found some sodas in the natural foods section of my grocery store that are stevia-based. So, the only sugar in them is stevia, not artificial or anything. They have all sorts of kinds. This is helping me get used to it because I was a Sprite a day type of person.
