One of the things that has been hardest for me is that the amount of food you get seems so small, especially if you haven't been dieting at all before hand. To go from eating whatever you want to tiny containers of food you are scheduled to eat is very, very hard. On a good note, though, having someone else pick what you're going to eat makes meal times easy, but not having as much as you want of it is what is hard. If you are thinking of doing this particular program, my recommendation is that you should start cutting back your regular food beforehand and then try this stuff. If nothing else, get used to eating a little less! Also, don't expect that everything will be delicious. Imagine you are in college with just a microwave to cook with and only a convenience store to shop in!
Blerf.*EDIT - I did eventually eat a little bit of this and the salad when I got home. The chili was very spicy (to me, anyway) and it had a weird, metallic, sweet taste. It wasn't terrible, but I don't want to eat it again. I didn't eat it all.
I hit the drunk/stupid point of low blood sugar while I was shopping at Target with Steve tonight. We had to go get some milk, and I realized that I couldn't focus on anything and was starting to giggle and slur my words. It wasn't severe, and I've felt this way when I've gone a long time without eating, but it hadn't been that long since I had the salad, so I'm not sure if I should be concerned. I straight up almost started to cry because I realized I couldn't have a chicken finger. That is not normal. I know I ate a lot of junk before doing this program, but eating better (or at least less) isn't like coming down from taking drugs is it? Do you go through food withdrawal?
It looks, and tastes, like someone had already eaten it.
