I've been on phase 1 for about 3 weeks. I just came home for my brothers graduation and decided to indulge a little bit because I'm home.
I had a diet coke today for the first time since I started the diet and I couldn't even finish it...it tasted gross...it tasted very sweet and syrupy. The funny thing is I used to guzzle diet coke and NEVER used to think it was that sweet. This just blew my mind.
I also had a little non SBD food...I had one little piece of wrap sandwich and a little macaroni salad. This was not alot of food at all, and I felt so stuffed I felt disgusting afterwards. I wasn't very hungry when I ate, but hungry enough to justify eating. I literally felt stuffed for a few hours aferwards. My mom makes this kind of macaroni salad ALL THE TIME, and I used to be able to eat a plate full of the stuff and not feel as bad as I did today.
I even snacked on some cookies, and I was compleatly in control of the cookie as I was eating it (if this makes sense). I could eat it slowly and enjoy it, rather than stuffing it in my face.
I read in the book that this diet shrinks your stomach, and after my experiences today I'm convinced that it's true. The diet says that it's designed to revamp your body to process food the way that it should. I guess my body is supposed to be able to stop after eating a small scoop of macaroni and a piece of sandwich. In some odd way it was a little disappointing, I wanted to take a day off from my diet and eat with my family and I really just COULDN'T pig out with everyone else. Actually I'm still feeling full.
Anyone else have any experiences like these?
