I have had a shake for breakfast and lunch, as well as a salad with a half cup of mushrooms and a cup of bell pepper for lunch with the WF dressing (creamy italian). Supper has been chicken and squash or cauliflower. I am having to force myself to eat any lettuce or third packet because I am just not hungry. Help!
The lettuce isn't required. The packets & veggies are.
You can even purée spinach in a shake to assure you get all your veggies in.
Before long, you'll be craving MORE veggies.
I hope by "squash" you mean zucchini? It's the only allowed squash.
Some veggies cook down more, as well, which might make it easier to get them all in.

Lost 95 lbs on IP!
