OK, so I went backwards a little bit yesterday and ditched the idea of giving up my beloved Diet Coke. I know I probably should have given it more time to prove I could lose weight faster by not drinking it. But I found I was a lot hungrier when I didn’t drink it and the weight didn’t seem to be coming off any faster. It sure made the days seem longer when I was constantly wondering when I would be eating again because I was just too hungry. I thought I might be overly hungry because the Diet Coke had prevented me from getting into ketosis. So I had waited 5 days to be sure that wasn’t the case and I was STILL hungry just shortly after eating a fairly good sized breakfast. I was really tempted to try eating the foil packages the IP food comes in so I wouldn’t be so hungry!!! That’s when I thought “This is silly, I might as well be drinking the Diet Coke!”
Of course I went overboard yesterday and drank 4 cans of the stuff because I had missed it so much. I guess I could be considered a Diet Coke addict! But as long as I am continuing to lose weight and am not feeling like I am starving to death between meals, I will continue to drink it.
