It seems to me that I eat more that I did before, but my choices are much healthier, and I log and count every gram of fat carb and protein throughout the day.
Since, September 26th, I haven't cheated once, haven't needed to.
No beer, no ice cream, no pastries,nothing.
It shouldn't have to be a struggle and you should be eating the correct amount of calories per day in the correct percentages, and also (very important) to eat all throughout the day, like every 2 or 3 hours.
There is no way that you can be craving food.
I went the other day to look for low fat and low sugar toppings for some health crackers that I found.
I came back from the store with preserves (no sugar), reduced fat cheese made with soy, and some cream cheese, and a spicy version of guacamole.
Cream cheese! you say, yup, but I only use a tablespoon at at a time, where before, I would have eaten at least half of the container in one sitting.
oh yeah, and drink so much water, that you are in the bathroom peeing most of the day.
