I just started on BistroMD this week. The food is pretty good and there seems like a lot of it but for some reason I lost my appetite after Day 2. I'm doing the 5 day, no snacks. They advertise 1,100-1,400 calories per day but I didn't realize until a few minutes ago how much they vary this by day. Fortunately, I saved all the boxes with the nutrional information. I know I need to add snacks but I was thinking that meant about 100 calories per snack, two snacks a day. However, yesterday's meals only totaled 840 calories and 24 grams of fat while the day before it was 1,115 calories and 39 grams of fat.
I assume I'm going to have to count calories with this program (exactly what I was trying to avoid) in order to make sure I don't have days where I'm only eating slightly more than 1,000 calories per day. I tend to feel bad when I'm on extreme diets like too low fat, too high protein or too low calories. I'm positive that's why I feel hungry and yet find I have no appetite while eating these meals.
Any words of wisdom? I'm debating whether to try another plan.
