Your body has probably adjusted to the diet changes. I rapidly lose weight in the beginning and all I did was change my diet. I think with the addition of exercise, the scale will start moving again albeit slowly unless you're working out like a maniac (which I don't condone). Oh and if you're doing day to day weigh-ins, for your sanity and confidence, I suggest you switch over to a weekly basis.
Almond milk and any other milk alternative other than soy are allowed on ignite. Bananas are in a gray area because of its sugar content.
I second Plant Fusion. I've tried Vega, Fuel and Garden of Life Raw Protein and Fusion is the only power I can drink just by itself.
Though, the retail price is 27 for 15 servings. To get the 30 servings, you'll spend 54. Six dollars is not much of a savings.
You can try eating more nuts or beans maybe even a few eggs if you're not vegan. I used to eat omelets whenever I got tired of Fuel.
Tactical Bodyweight Training. It's a series of workouts run by trainer Cody that uses your own bodyweight for resistance training.
Similar situation only difference is my belly is rapidly shrinking but not my bottom so much. Every body is different and some people lose weight faster in certain places then others. I've been hunting around for a solution and just about every fitness forum suggest patience. Keep working at it and the other body parts will give up the fat eventually.
I remember doing BHT for the first time. My quads and buns hurt like crazy for four days. I could barely walk and bending down was an exercise in torture. Take all the time you need to recover. If you need to do some low intensity exercise for a while then it is okay. Though to be fair BHT is actually the most intense set of workouts during the first month of Cardio Sculpt.
Oddly enough, when the program cycled again to BHT, I didn't feel any of the intense pain I felt before.
Yeah. That's what it does. It would be nice if the day advices whenever you actually play the video to completion. I guess it's just another tweak to work out.
Yes. Even the DB Fuel has stevia.
Not exactly advocating DB Fuel or anything, just that in the case of Ignite you may have 10g of added sugar or less. On Balance, it's 5g. Though I do wonder why it has cane juice and stevia. I think it's to balance the aftertaste of stevia.
Stevia is okay. The Shake FAQ under Nutrition>Resources allows it.
Eh. Ignite isn't the "best and only way to achieve a healthy diet" it just a way.
There a many ways to achieve the same goal. I think the designers Ignite knew it is not sustainable for most people that's why it is only 21 days. Another reason is because some people just won't give up sweets and artificial sweeteners and such unless they go cold turkey.
I agree with you that it is really restrictive and I felt absolutely terrible during the 21 day period. But I would still do it again because before I never really looked at food labels and ate whatever "diet" food out there and felt like I was spinning my wheels. Now I formed the habit of carefully inspecting the things I eat.
Yes, I did buy the shakes. It's pretty good and has a nice mouth feel. If you don't want to buy that's fine. If you look around on the boards there plenty people who didn't buy it or went with something cheaper.
Yes I did get rid of most of the stuff that had those ingredients. It was no major loss it was mostly prepackaged garbage. You can't call me an idiot for tossing some Oreos and Lean Cuisines. And I donated some of the other stuff.
I don't really see what so complicated about Ignite. It's simple just don't eat things that have soy, gluten, dairy, added sugar over 10g, alcohol, and artificial sweeteners. There are plenty people in real life who have no choice in the matter and most eat this way. On the other hand it's easier said than done if you shop at some budget store or Walmart where you can spend hours and not find anything.
I get that you don't really approve of the program which is fine. Again there several users didn't bother with it either. They don't go out of their way to make a rant topic. Really? Is this necessary? For the record, I think Nutrisystem, Atkins, South Beach Diet and a whole slew of weight loss programs are a bunch of malarkey but I wouldn't go to their respective forums and talk about how "nuts" the people are for following such rubbish.
Thanks. I kinda bumbled my way through Ignite by just eating sandwiches now I can't eat another sandwich without getting queasy.
Now that I am in the Balance Phase I plan to spend my points on a weekly meal I get from some recipe.
I too find Balance a great relief. On Ignite I felt so miserable and deprived. People raved about how much of an energy boost they've gotten during Ignite. It didn't happen for me. I barely ate anything and lost about 10 lbs then got terribly ill. If it would have lasted any longer I probably would have ended up in the hospital or something.
Now that I am on Balance, I've reintroduced dairy and some added sugar here and there because the evil six is in everything and I really needed some leeway in other to have something to eat.
Others have but I get the feeling they are just trying to be encouraging. Still, it's nice.
I am on day 18. I weigh myself officially on Monday. As of the Monday starting this final week I lost 10 lbs.
