I did HMR, another meal replacement program, and let me tell you, the hit on my social life was terrible. It's an all-or-nothing plan so for 5 months, I did not eat as much as a tic-tac off plan. However, I also lost over 50 lbs.
These plans, they work IF you work them. You've got to put yourself first and your health before your social life. The restaurants, alcohol, and the real friends will be there when you have lost the weight!
