My two cents: sparkling water helps me a lot.
Also the notion I remind myself sometimes: its a diet, its not supposed to be fun. And I will be hungry. It’s supposed to be.
I know its not fun/not much help but sometimes it helps to remember it.
Also -and I can stress this enough- find a support system. I always relay on my wife when Im dieting and its hard (thats a nice way of saying that I bitch about being hungry to her). It makes a lot of difference. Hell, if nothing else, post here and let us/the community encourage you through it.
Thanks for sharing, I’ll buy some sparkling water as well.
I don’t expect the diet to be fun, it’s just difficult to stick my stated goals these days.
I’ll be sure to post here as well
Have a great day
