Frenchy, another easy way to get your veggies in is to add a cup of baby spinach if you do shakes in the AM/PM. I find getting down two cups of veggies in one sitting is SUPER hard for me (unless I'm eating a salad). I blend the baby spinach in my AM shake (and sometimes my PM one) and can't even taste it. Also, maybe bring a cup or 1/2 a cup of a raw veggie to snack on between breakfast and lunch? I've done that with cucumber slices. A little salt and pepper and I'm good to go. And definitely break up the protein. I do 4 oz. at lunch and 4 oz. at dinner, but doing more at lunchtime and less at dinner definitely wouldn't hurt.
I do agree about sometimes not being hungry, but following the protocol to the letter has me down 12.2 lbs in 2 weeks, so I will force it down if I have to!
For example, this is what I ate today:
B: IP chocolate drink mix, 1 c. baby spinach, 1 oz. coffee concentrate, .5 oz. Torani SF Salted Caramel syrup
L: 4 oz. pork loin, 1 c. tri-color bell peppers, romaine lettuce, lemon and olive oil dressing
S: IP strawberry wafers
D: 4 oz. shrimp, 1/2 c. zucchini "noodles", 1/2 c. cucumber, 1/2 c. tri-color bell peppers, 1/4 c. mung bean sprouts, 1/4 c. shallots over romaine (yeah, that was a BIG salad)
S: IP vanilla RTD
