Supplemental Info/Vitamin Info

OK so I compared the price of the IP Supplements and the ones I actively take, as well as the actual nutritional values in each supplement.  I can say the base vitamins come out in favor of my regular brands, and the items that are unpronounceable come out on the IP side.  I will continue to research various multi-vitamins, and will begin looking up what those strange items are (pantothenic acid, selenium, manganese, molybdenum etc.)

  1. Would you know how much 1 bottle of the IP potassium/calcium is? (100 tablets per bottle) And how much is one jar or the IP real salt?

  2. Do I use seasalt and if so how much? Can I cook with olive oil and do I need to take two teaspoons of olive oil and can I drink almond milk or use half and half and have coffee.

    • Francesca – thanks for your question! Sea Salt is fine, try to keep it within that 1-2 TSP / day range, technically no you cannot cook with any kind of oil, Ideal Protein doesn’t recommend it. I used Olive Oil during my loss though and kept it at 1 TBSP / day, usually thrown in with my vegetables steamed for lunch. Almond milk is too high in sugar I’d think for it to match the protocol
