sounds easy, but it isnt. you'll find out later in day one when you want something sweet or some bread or something crunchy. a couple days in you'll be potentially be hating life and freaking out that you cant eat "normal" food as it is junk food (aka illegal) on this diet. but stick with it. you need a lot of self discipline and self motivation to make it through. really give it a chance and try not to cheat at all. the more you stick to the directions the better you're giving yourself the best chance to see if this diet works for you and/or how well you can potentially get. if you feel tired and like you cant concentrate and constantly hungry, it will pass in a few days. it is your blood sugar rebalancing. suffer through it. you may find you'll be making your own meals but tough. it is good for you anyway. your body will thank you.
just remember - sugars are hidden in EVERYTHING - bbq sauce, salad dressings, ketchup, glazes, dips, etc etc. scrutinize all the ingredients before you eat something.
and give it a good long try - like at least a month. the on-line resource is fantastic, so use that as a guide. there are a lot of internet groups devoted to this diet, so it may be a good idea to join one of those and get tips and advice from them as well.
best of luck!!!
