Diets in Review Question
modifying ideal protein

I did the protocol pretty strictly for 7 weeks and lost 26 pounds. Then I became famished. Later found out I had 2 ear infections so that may have had something to do with needing more calories.
I have tried going back on IP and complied 100% for a week and now I am completely famished again. I don't think this is enough basic REE calories (resting energy expenditure.)
I am trying to find a way to do this program but with more calories daily. The consultant I have simply tells me to eat more vegetables. I am seriously hungry and vegetables aren't going to help that. I have wondered if you can just eat protein/veggies 3 times a day and use the IP foods for snacks with the supplements. That would be eating almost perfectly but why is that frowned on by IP people?
