I am still doing my soup diet right now, but I have had a few regular meals and I am at the place where I usually start cheating enough that it no longer has the desired effect. My wife has signed us up for a liquid diet plan that I am skeptical of. I don't remember the name but I'll add it to this thread when we receive our stuff. It's one of those where meals are replaced by shakes, with a one-day-a-week detox day, whatever that means. While I have little doubt that anyone who sticks with such a diet would lose weight, my skepticism comes from being able to stick with it. The last time I tried a liquid diet, the shakes that they substituted for meals did absolutely nothing to alleviate hunger. So, instead of having breakfast, I might have a shake. But after drinking the shake, I was just as hungry for breakfast as I was before drinking the shake, and if I had the willpower not to eat when I was hungry, I wouldn't need anyone's diet plan. However, I agreed to try it. If the shelves are going to be empty in the grocery stores anyhow, why not?
