    jipsybird answered the Question: Why are you doing Ignite?

    I have been curious about Paleo for a while. I'm doing this for me. I want to be healthier, have more energy with kids. I've been kicking around the same 5 pounds for about six months, and time to kick it to the next level. I secretly desire to inspire my hubby to join me. He is pre-diabetic: lost a good amount of weight over the last couple of months due to being super busy. I'm concerned he will regain it back, but he claims he won't. I'm home with the kids while he works and goes to school, as far as I know he doesn't workout. When we go out to eat I sometimes ask to see if they have the nutritional info on a dish, he will scoff as though saying "here we go again", making my request feel almost ridiculous. So, I haven't talked to him about doing ignite yet.

    My best to all in their efforts!

    jipsybird asked the Question: Coconut sugar and Ignite

    Is coconut sugar ok to use as a sweetener while on Ignite? I bought a very plain pea and flax protein powder and find myself wanting my shakes to be a touch sweeter (especially if out of fruit).

    Alternatively, I know the info on Ignite said not to drink fruit juice, but would it be ok in very small amounts as a sweetener?

    Thanks!

    That is a very good question. I wish I had an answer for you but guess I'll wait for it with everyone else.

    jipsybird answered the Question: Calories: Is under just as bad as over

    I'm no expert, but I think the side effects you list by being under nourished calorie wise happens when calories are severely restricted. Many people would say that happens when under 1200 calories are consumed. I think those side effects depend on the nutrition of those calories and how severly the calories are restricted. From the information you have given, I think being 200 under your caloric goal of 1800 should not be that detrimental. However, if you feel your body is crying out for more nutrition (you obiously by now have an idea of what those signs might be) by all means, eat more of your nutritious food.

    Have a great day and good luck with your goals.

    jipsybird answered the Question: How do you handle your plateaus?

    From what I understand, to break through a plateau you need to put more variety in your workout. For example, if you have been doing the same set of workouts for a month, the body gets used to it, therefore the plateau. So change it up. Use heavier weights, do a different set of workouts, or even just workout longer.

    Hope this helps!

    Making your own coconut milk is super easy! Plus you can dry the pulp and use as coconut flour. :)

    That Roastaroma sounds interesting! Do you know what stores carry it? I usually shop Raleys or Walmart.
