So I stuck with the diet, with some modifications. I learned that the diet I was on was actually made for much bigger people than me and that was why everyone was losing so much weight and I wasn't. I have maybe 10 lbs to lose so...It works for me, too, but with a few changes such as no "cheat days". I maybe get one cheat meal, but no whole days of pigging out. Not sure how that even works for the big people, actually. Also, I started exercising. This is not something that is emphasized in the diet book I read. But you know what? I feel amazing. I have way more energy. I don't know if it is the high protein diet, more exercise or what but it's like I have a runner's high all the time. Especially in the morning. Also, I am sore, good sore. It feels really good. I'm not weighting myself for a while though. This is the first week I decided to really ramp it up and I want to see really good results when I finally check out what this is doing for me and my body.
