From what I can tell, while rogue or AP (alternate protocol – off original protocol), I think it would be fine because it’s basically just protein- here’s a screenshot of a brand on amazon – 1 tbsp has about 22-25 calories and 6g protein. So just figure those calories into your day, whether you are on the 500 or 800 calorie protocol. I wouldn’t personally think it’s a good idea to remove any whole protein calories in order to replace with this, because gelatin is not a complete protein. So make sure you get at least your 2 servings of 100g of protein by weight per day, and then if you add 1-2 tbsp of gelatin, take that from your fruits or veggies.
Keep in mind though that the serving size of 50 calories worth of a P2 veggie like cucumber is much larger than a 2 tbsp serving of gelatin powder, and the bulk of the veggies is in part what helps fill you up enough (combined with proper hCG dosage) so that you have the least hunger on the diet. I think it would probably be best to only use 1 tbsp a day to prevent problems with this.
Here’s some resources for you!
Grassfed Beef Gelatin Powder – “Gelatin dissolves in hot liquids, but will gel or thicken in cold liquids or once it is chilled. This makes it ideal for adding to soups, smoothies, and making jello.”
Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin – another high quality grass-fed brand
I found some interesting info if you want to try making some sort of jello-ey type thing –
The Knox Gelatine website said that 2.5 teaspoons of gelatin (which is what comes in the Knox packets) will firm up 2 cups of liquid or 1.5 cups of solids.
So potentially, you can use 1 tbsp of gelatin to make a 1.5-2 cup or so treat of some sort if you let it chill in the fridge awhile! That gives me some ideas…..
