I know my first couple of months of change were quite rigid in the planning department because I found it easier to fight the cravings and break bad habits when I simply followed my plan and didn't have to spend alot of time making food choices or cooking.

Hang in there. As Freelancemomma said, go with what works for you. It sounds like you are very aware that this isn't your long-term eating style and I assume you have some idea of where you'll go from here.

Good luck to you!
As long as it doesn't lead to binging then yes it works, anything works as long as you stick to it and don't eventually binge. Changes to my diet that are this drastic always lead to binging and undoing any "good work" I've accomplished. Perhaps this doesn't happen to other people but it does to me whenever I introduce an extremely restrictive way of eating.

"Binging is a descent into a world where every restriction... is cut loose. At its core is a feeling of deprivation.. a feeling you can never get enough. Binges do not signify a lack of willpower or inability to care for yourself. On the contrary, binges are a urgent attempt to care for yourself when you feel uncared for. They are the voice of survival. Binges are the mark of the self that says, 'I am tired of feeling deprived, of being told I am wrong, that I am bad." - Geneen Roth
