I know it isnt easy for all of us to cut out 97% of daily foods, but if you can get the right mind set having a strict diet works. Water weight or not in one day I lost 2.2lbs, and feel great.

Add brown or Wild Rice,oatmeal or chopped onion to lean hamburger to stretch it. Add chopped onion, celery or other negative calorie veggies to make meatloaf.
