I don't find it hard, no once you start feeling your jeans loosen up, and you start seeing your losses in black and white, thats when it hits home and you realise it's for real and you just get sooooo motivated
I think the word 'stricter' might be a little misleading.
On CD, I was allowed 3 shakes and a whole load of water. Oh, I guess there were bars, but you get that on LT don't you.
I consider that strict
Of course, if you chose a higher plan you have more normal food, but the guidelines are 'strictly' laid out. It may be more tempting to cheat, but I guess if you cheat on LT, it's not because it's not a strict diet.
Struggle with doing SS+ properly and you'll probably be better with SS.
Unless...when you say 'strict' you mean your pharmacist beats you with a wooden stick if you go off plan
I've managed LT for all of a week about a year ago, I couldn't stick to it I just felt ill and the soups and shakes were absolutely revolting
I'm now on week 2 of CD and loving it, the soups and shakes really are tasty and I had a peanut bar last night and it was scrummy I am finding it much easier to stick to just because the food is so much nicer!
