8.1 pounds gone in 5 days. It really is unbelievable. The diet is restrictive but incredibly easy. I find it almost a relief not to have a plan a bunch of things or do more than throw a piece of chicken on the george foreman. I am not hungry, often even at meal times. I did notice that when you don’t drink enough water your loss slows as with any other diet. Yesterday I “only” lost .7 pounds but I got all my water in and today I am back to losing 1.5 pounds. Oh and did I mention I am not doing any kind of exercise?
