My husband lost over 100 pounds in a six month period. He stuck to the sheet, did the water, supplements and was true to the protocol. It wasn’t easy, we had constant company for at least half of that time and many celebrations like birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, social commitments, etc. The planning is key and always, always, have an ip snack with you so you don’t cave under the social pressure. Also, sparkling water was great for socials. You can do this. It works if you work at it.
