Very new to the diet . I haven’t started yet however since Monday this week I have stopped drinking alcohol . This is a major factor for me . I’m a very social drinker a bit too social . I calculated last night that I’ve been using a minimum of 1000 calories a day just on alcohol. Stupid I know. Please don’t judge.
So from Monday I have cut out carbs i.e the main staples and alcohol. I have been reading the book and basically taken a few of the meal plans and used them as a starting point. This then leads me on to my most burning question that I hope you can help me with .
Once you start the diet do you have to eat exactly what is in the daily stages meal by meal ? I mean exactly to the letter to make the diet work or for example if you don’t exceed the 800 calories is that ok ? I don’t mean swapping vegetables for chips etc and weighing that amount out onto your plate . I’m curious as there are things I don’t actually like so could I swap trout for tuna ??
Any help and advice welcomed.
