I have learned that if you plan ahead this diet works. We helped move our daughter today . I knew lunch was going to be fast food so I took my lunch. I did not even think about eating one of my husband's French fries. I was happy eating what I brought and enjoying everyone's company. I do not think of IP as a diet but as the way I now eat. I feel so good with all the junk food out of my system. Day 17 of reboot and feeling good.
