    Thank you posting what you liked and didn’t. It’s hard to know what food to pick! I love your blog!

      After you get going on the diet you will find your tastes changing. So don’t be afraid to taste some of the stuff I didn’t care for at some point as you may end up liking them more than I did.

        I totally agree with you at them moment for me Its been 11 days and I do not like pina colada drinks and Im starving an hour later as I had it as a morning drink. I will try it one more time when Im adjusted to this program
