When I am wanting to mess with the structure of this WOL (which I am not calling a diet today) by eating something not OP, I will tell myself, "Debbie, don't mess with the chemistry."
More Sugar=less weight lost
I believe that my lack of cravings which has made the last 10 weeks PDE(pretty darn easy) is because I detoxed during a clean P1.
While eating healthier is always a better choice, the reason I am committed to SB as prescribed is that I am ready to live at a normal healthy weight in a reasonable time frame. The majority of my weight loss from "eating healthier" on my own came at an amazingly slow 1# per MONTH. 63 pounds took 6 years!
I think if you post post post here, that 2 clean weeks will go by very fast.
My vote is clean P1. I hear so many P1'ers saying just what Ruby said, "Last week was my first week, and also the first week in a *long* time that I have felt as good as I did."
