This is my diet. While I eat simply and prefer natural foods, the key to the diet is not following my exact intake. It is learning to eat when you are hungry and stopping when you are no longer hungry. You should choose foods that are satisfying to you, and avoid artificial restrictions that make it difficult for you to stick to any plan.
You are making a commitment to stick to the plan for life. There are no exceptions. Everything can be made to fit within your plan.
The goal is to reach the point where you are able to eat like a normal, slender person: eating only when hungry, stopping when you are not hungry, and choosing what you really want to eat, what you will find satisfying.
