just suck it up dude. it’s mind over matter.
get your ass on the scale and check your weight. that should be motivation enough to keep you going. [/quote]
According to the scale I’ve lost 3kg in 6 days. It’s why I can’t quit. Obviously I can’t expect the same results but I suppose that’s just a natural penalty of failing.
one more thing… if the sweetness of the shakes is what’s bothering you (that kills me too) get a cup of black coffee and use it as a chaser for the shake.
i’ll do 8-10 sips of the shake in one huge sitting, take a small drink of black coffee, then another 8-10 sips to finish off the shake, followed by another small drink of the coffee. all in all, the shake goes down in about 45 seconds. [/quote]
I didn’t think coffee was allowed on the V-Diet, I haven’t consumed anything other than shakes & supplements. I think if it was only drinking the shake itself I could do it but I swear I’m sitting at my desk, powder ready to be mixed and I have the very pressing urge to vomit. The smell makes me feel ill. I had the same reaction to the food prepared at my school in China (nobody actually liked the food over there but no one had as bad a reaction as I did).
How much HOT-ROX are you taking a day and what is the time of your doses? You may be sensitive to the effects and need to start on half doses until you build up tolerance (just a supposition on my part) Are you drinking tea/coffee/soda that contains caffeine late in the evening? Also, how carb heavy was your food intake before you started the diet? If memory serves, some folks have a tougher first few days if there carbs where high before they started. I can’t help you on the shakes. Have you tried blending with ice?[/quote]
The 1st 2 days I had one in the morning and 1 for lunch. I started having 4 each day (at the same times) after that. I’ve taken HOT-ROX before so I’ve experienced the queasiness, sleeplessness and warmer body-temp before. None of that was unexpected so that’s a fair supposition but it was never to this degree.
For 2 months prior I switched to a vegan/organic centric diet. Oddly, not very easy to do in Japan but I put forth a serious amount of effort. I had fresh fruit daily and began to build a near addiction to banana, mango & soy milk smoothies. I started cooking nearly every day and would bring my own lunches of vegetable curry and paneer to school (which earned me some very curious glances).
I even had emergency rations of vegan burritos and apples stashed at my schools. In the whole of my life I’ve never eaten healthier than I did in the couple months before the V-Diet. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong but today I’ve only had 2 shakes and I feel (while not exactly good) considerably better than I have so far this week. I don’t have the urge to throw up at any rate.
