Conquer that addiction! You can do it!! I use both Gold Standard protein powder and Complete Nutrition's protein powder.

I was addicted to diet Coke for years...my drug of choice! I tried quitting so many times and always felt horrible...thinking much the way you are now about the sugar substitutes as well. My success at it was a very long (and sometimes uncomfortable road)- I didn't go cold turkey. First I cut back on half the dCokes I was drinking, and as an alternative I drank tea with honey. Then about a month later I cut the caffeine in half again by using half no caffeine tea and I drank one small can of dCoke a day. This entire time I was drinking a cup of coffee every morning as well. The third month the dCoke went byebye, but I kept the coffee and 1/2 caf tea. The next month it was 1/2 caf coffee to start the day...then the last three months or so I kept cutting the caffeine until it was gone. It really took me nearly a year!

I like how you planned out your day. I need to do that more consistently. Good job. You've got this.

Keep working hard. Try to add more vegetables to your day. Find some good protein sources you'll like . I have found when I am eating vegan the most difficult part is getting enough protein and a good variety of protein. My vegan friends are likely getting too much soy.

This is a lot like how I started out a month or so ago with my first dietbet. The first month was pretty hard. I am also someone who is hungry almost all the time, but especially in the evening. Spreading my calories throughout the day a little more evenly helped me out quite a bit. I was not hardly able to finish a 20 minute treadmill workout three times a week, but by the last week+ I had increased the time to 30 minutes and 4 times a week. I know this is what is really helping me much as I still hate to admit it.

Weight fluctation is totally normal. I like this saying, to help with motivation, "I don't diet and exercise, I eat and train!" Puts a little different slant on my thinking.

So, I've found that my body reacts quickly to things (especially salt). Many times it's water weight. Try knocking out the diet coke... despite it being sugar free, it spikes your insulin. A nutritionist once said to me, "Have you ever seen a skinny person with diet coke in their basket?" DOH! I drink Advocare Spark for a wee kick of caffeine and lots of B vitamins, and amino acids. Best wishes! Keep at it, and keep blogging!
