It isn't for me, for a variety of reasons. But for anyone browsing these forums looking for a diet to try I wanted to share the positive things I took away from my week of induction.
1 - Psyllium husks RULE (fiber supplement). Definately a keeper for life, and I won't dread the next time I have to take perscription painkillers
2 - The world is saturated in cheap sugar. A tiny bit goes a long way and if you can break away from all sugar for even a few days your taste for it will change. The darkest chocolate tastes almost too sweet for me now, and I think if I had a full name brand candy bar or soda I'd have a heart attack.
3 - It was working! After being in a long stall I saw 159 yesterday. I adhered to it religiously; measuring, counting, even giving away a ham I bought before realizing it had dextrose in it.
4 - Chocolate, I took you for granted and I'm sorry. Let's never break up again.
