Thanks for the update. Glad you're doing well. As to the hunger, I've not too surprised. On a long fast, even with "0" calories the hunger pretty much subsides after a couple of days.
I can appreciate the shakes getting old!
Now, my question is what happens when you guys check out of the facility and go back to "real life"? I know what's happened to me in the past and I'd hope they are taking steps to help prepare you for long-term success.
