Well, one and a half days in. I am taking two tablespoos of canola oil a day (although the first night I also tried the sugar water, but I don't like drinking things so slowly! I wanted to gulp it!). So far no appetite suppression, at least when it mattered, but that could be cuz I accidentally skipped breakfast yesterday and had a small lunch. That's a bad trend for me: eating very little throughout the day and then having a huge meal (last night I had a perfectly healthy quinoa salad with tons of fresh organic vegetables (corn, yellow pepper, peas, scallion, red onion, with adzuki beans, and about half a BIG bag of organic popcorn. But the qunioa salad was HUGE and I kept going back for more.. I ate at least 4 normal-sized servings).
It's going to be tough for me to find "strange" new foods to try. I already eat SO many "odd" types, like I buy most of my food at asian or other "ethnic" markets (japanese, thai, indian, indoensian, vietnamese... lots of miso, exotic veggies, etc). I guess maybe I could eat some "normal" food like spaghetti with soy meatballs, something I haven't had in YEARS!
I'll keep updating. I can't wait for appetite suppression to kick in!
Do you guys think 2 tablespoons of canola oil a day is a good amount for me? (I am still BMI 22). Should I add more? Or take less?
