I enjoy a naughty meal the day before...knowing it won't be with me for long!
For me, that's pizza, crust and all...
It is actually a kind of good feeling to be all cleaned out!
(Does anyone think it would do any harm for UC'ers to "cleanz" now and then??)
Anyway, good luck and think of it as an adventure.
