Many people comment on the fact that they don't think they can follow my diet because it doesn't seem like enough food.  Well, yes, everything is cut down to portion size. If you asked me how my body first responded when I drastically cut my calorie intake I could tell you with total honesty that it was extremely difficult.  I got bad headaches from it, I felt really hungry, and I think I was pretty irritable for about two or three weeks.  I cheated because I was so hungry after school (which is work for me) that I would eat a plate of fat-free saltine's with hot sauce (I know you're probably thinking gross, but my husband introduced me to it, and it was a basically fat-free snack).  But, eventually my body got used to it; I adapted.  Now when I get hungry I drink some water or a diet pop to temporarily feel full, chew a piece of sugar-free gum, or have a couple handfuls of bran cereal.  It's all about asking yourself what you want, for me it was to be thin.  There's no doubt about it, I have a lot of inner demons associated with weight and because of this being thin was important to me.  I mean don't get me wrong, I'm glad I'm healthier but I would be lying if I didn't admit how much I love being smaller.  If you are not as concerned with being thin and just want to lose some weight add an extra fruit and yogurt to my plan.  Make sure you're eating approximately 4 oz. of meat for dinner.  It's really a personal choice and this is what makes me happy.  Find what makes you happy.
