You CAN stick to it and you WILL stick to it!!! The whole key to this diet is mindset and water. If you're in the right frame of mind and genuinely dead set on doing it then you will, but your head does have to be in the right place.
To curb the hunger over the first few days you need to be drinking near on 4 litres of water per day. Once the first 4/5 days are over your body will be in ketosis and you'll sail through the following weeks.
Another tip I found helpful when I first started was logging onto here. Firstly its somewhere for support when you're feeling like you might 'cave' and secondly its so inspiring to see how well people are doing. You can also try logging onto shopping websites and choosing your new wardrobe!!
Listen to skinnyminicoming, she knows her stuff. Its tough but soooo rewarding!
First things first get in the frame of mind as said above. Then go buy a new top in smaller size and hang it up in yr bedroom so you can see it everyday. Focus on this when you get up in morning and last thing at night. Thinspiration. Then get a terrible photo of yrself all jam rolley polley that shows you the whole reason you choose to do a weightloss plan, stick it up somewhere to remind yrself.
A really good trick is a visual one, its true that if you focus on a picture of food for a few minutes, allow yr thoughts to break free, the hungry, I want to eat it, the no Im not going to eat it Im strong etc, even the smell then the brain will start to tell itself you have had it or that you no longer need it. It really does work but if you find this more of a torture method then I'm sorry for suggesting it, it really does work for me and many other of my friends who do these strict but worth it diets. Good luck, you'll make it.
You could well have six pounds off by Thursday morning and attending your weigh in is very important for keeping you on track.
Not many people manage to have a perfect first week...as you have got to get use to a whole new way of thinking and if like me you nibbled a lot when cooking it can be extremely difficult to unlearn in just one week.
I have a friend and no matter how hard she tried she could never get past the first day, so you are doing pretty well, you just need to stop being so hard on yourself.:grouphugg:
