    Wow, Good luck to you Tracey! The sugar cravings should subside in a week or two. I am a vegetarian. I sometimes have a "cheat" if my body is really craving protien but I have tried not to give in to it because it will usually make me sick after. Now forgive my ignorance but are eggs considered dairy?

I have hypothyroidism and I could NOT lose weight no matter what till I started my meds.
    I think I may need to get my thyroid checked out. Just over the last year and 1/2 my hair has thinned and I gained 20 lbs. Energy level last year was AWFUL!

    I have not tried this diet, but love cayenne pepper and supposedly that helps w/cravings?! Best of luck, I'll be cheering you on!!

    I start off my day with a big bowl of Frosted Flakes. Then I head to Dunkin Donuts for a large coffee and jelly donut.
    Lunch is a nice hot roast beef hero with brown gravy and melted mozzarella cheese.
    A few red bulls during the afternoon.
    Chicken Parm for dinner
    Chocolate shake around midnight ...
    works for me. The pounds are falling off...

    Nope, I can eat eggs… I have a feeling I will be SICK of them after 30 days. I would love to be a vegetarian, but I think I would starve… Lol

    GET IT CHECKED!!! When I went to my doc I was gaining weight, couldn't sleep, ZERO energy, and stress out the WAZOO… I actually thought I was having a mental breakdown I feel MUCH better now, and I've been on the meds for several years… I will let you know how the diet goes, so far I'm missing my coffee creamer but I used coconut milk this morning and that helped. Gotta get over the SUGAR cravings I guess… Lol

    No Way, there are so many great recipes! It is a little harder for me because I hate fish. I love any kind of veggies though so that is good! Believe it or not, when we are away for the weekends with our friends on the boat, they all eat what I make, and forget their burgers and junk! I mean who wouldn't want homemade mushroom risotto instead, with a beautiful salad??

    @brutus77 I believe the term is that if you eat eggs...then you are a ovo-vegan...and if you consume dairy and eggs...then the term is lacto-ovo-vegan. My wife is a lacto-ovo-vegan...no meat no fish.

    OK… 4 days in and I've already lost 4 pounds!!! I had a TERRIBLE headache the first couple of days, my trainer said it was the detox from the sugar, and other processed additives. My biggest problem is eating enough calories… I'm supposed to be eating around 1550 per day, and I've only been getting around 1000. I have ZERO energy, I'm going to try and get some approved snacks from the store today…

    Any advice?!!
