    Hi everyone just received my PS1000, have read all the materials and excited to get on board. Monday will be my start day, right now I’m in preparation mode working on my weekly menu plan. My only question is 5oz the daily amount protein? Well here it goes!

    Hi! Welcome to the program. You will find such amazing support from this site and the facebook page. The 5 oz protein is a per serving amount. So if you have chicken for lunch and fish for dinner – it is 5 oz each meal. The planning and prepping of your meals is key to success. Best wishes!

    Welcome! I agree that planning is key. If you ever took advantage of quick and easy (not healthy) meals like me this will save you. It keeps me from the drivethru and snacking on a bowl of sugar cereal. Now I have raw almonds, fresh veggies and fruit to snack on. It really is planning!

    This is a high protein low carbohydrate lifestyle. I cook my meals for the week on Sundays that way I am never caught without the right things to eat on hand. Life with always present obstacles but if you are well prepared and plan accordingly then you will find your success. GOOD luck and YOU GOT THIS!!!!

    Hi August,
    5 oz. of protein for each meal- or at least some form for each meal! Hope this helps, and welcome!

    Ok I’m on day two, not bad, but feeling a little lightheaded. I hope I’m eating enough food still feel hungry. I have been using my fitness pal as a guide for my caloric count. But after reading above from Lauren, I have not been eating 5 oz of protein for every meal, maybe that’s why I’m hungry……

    Hi August. If you are still hungry look to lean proteins like salmon, chicken and shrimp. You can eat 6oz of salmon for 160 calories. Eat that with a big salad or a whole can of green beans for something easy. Eat a couple hard boiled eggs. A cup of raw carrots with that will fill you up for awhile. Fat and protein will keep you full. I eat raw almonds and avocados for fat. Boneless, skinless chicken breasts are also a Big Bang for your caloric buck.
    A nice protein shake in the morning will help keep you full. My favorite is the almond coffee one (plain Greek yogurt, unsweetened chocolate almond milk, protein powder, coffee, almond butter).
    We are all here to support each other so if you have more questions ask in the forums!!

    Awesome! I’m happy to help! I think your belly will settle in to fewer calories too. My other piece of advice is to buy a food scale! It is an absolutely necessary tool in my kitchen. Even if I think I am guessing correct amounts the scale will always tell the truth. And it is more accurate than a measuring cup. Think baby carrots. Weighing is better. Some items are just hard to measure out.
    Extra calories can really sneak in there if you aren’t careful! Good luck!!

    I use the Vital Protein in the blue canister (2 scoops) and I get either from Amazon or directly from ideal protein.
