I am so glad that you wrote this! I have tried IE so many times in the past, but ultimately, it was really a diet in "disguise" as an anti-dieting plan. (I'm not saying that it is this way for everyone, but it was for me). The guilt from not eating when just hungry was just as bad as the guilt of going over calories or eating too many carbs on other plans.
