Which is the better option? We all know most people's social lives revolve around food and drink. Especially in summer when people are out more, there are barbeques, holidays etc. I have committed to do LT for at least six weeks and then decide whether to continue longer. Would you restrict your social activities during that time, or just find a way round it? I would feel odd turning up to a dinner party or a bbq with my shake, for example. Don't mind missing the booze too much, it's the social eating that's the problem - especially the temptation of seeing other people eat and inevitable 'you can't starve yourself' comments.
