I started the IP diet at 180 lb. Went down to 132.5 lb. Didn't have a compatible coach so did not complete Phase 2-3-4. Four years later, I'm at 198! I'm starting again and hopefully I will finish this diet and stick to the good sense of eating properly. I decided to search online for support because the coach I have now knows less than me! I know it works and I did not cheat the first time; I believe I can do this again.
