One HUGE thing to remember is that eating normally for me at least was only attainable by drinking the oil. Oh, I have such good control now, but by the end of the second day with no oil it's a bit shaky and by the morning after that I do need it. I really think one starts to think it's will power. It's not. It's such a feeling of control that you think you can be in control by sheer will, but in my experience that's not true. If I take the oil I can just not eat, for a very long time. But before that I thought salads for lunch every day would cure me, I was so convinced. After a week and a half I suddenly couldn't get full, my brain was in the fridge all the time, and I was miserable. If anyone wants to go off it and see if it's just your will power, go for it. I don't. I know this isn't placebo, because I know how my appetite controlled me and ruined everything I thought would for sure, this time, cure me.
