When I hear people saying they can't take the oil, it's too gross, I'm just boggled. I'd cut off an arm to be thin. Oil is so not a problem when it brings a loss of appetite this startling. (I say as I stare in disinterest and my half-eaten sandwich that's going in the fridge to probably rot.)
People are posting methods of how to take it without it being so gross. I just chug it down, because after the very first day, I finally for once in my life had real hope. Not the "I've been burned before but I'll try anything" hope.
To play Devils' advocate so bear with me a minute I'm not really saying the following: If you would cut off an arm to be thin, then why aren't you thin already? If you were that determined and really wanted it, why weren't the previous available measure enough for you? Couldn't you simply cut your calories? Sure, the set point would have kicked in and made you very hungry and miserable, but if you wanted it that bad, why not just ignore the hunger?
Of course the answer is that, for whatever reason, you either didn't or simply couldn't. So if someone says they can't drink oil why not believe them? For you it apparently seemed promising after day one and that made it bearable. Bonnie obviously did not experience that so why do you compare yourself with her.
That analysis I just did is 100% as valid as the analysis on Bonnie that was done by you and that other person (who says she must not really want to be thin. Petra was a little incoherent (maybe a language barrier or writing to fast and angry) but she is right about the judgement and circular logic.
Every person on this board is probably trying to lose weight and yet, and yet... some fall in the common societal pattern of judgement.
I would be much happier hearing "sorry it doesn't work for everyone" rather than dissecting Bonnie's personal failings and attitude to find something to blame. But of course, her failure must be her own fault, because it the plan works inconsistently then that takes away the hope for some.
