I haven't eaten solid food now for over 48 hours. I imagine my stomach is a deflated balloon. I still get hunger pains mind you. But the idea of eating those repulsive bars makes me gag.
When Oprah famously crash dieted all those years ago she did it via milkshakes which are I guess akin to this. I remember reading about how when she went on air post weight loss she spruiked the maker, whose switchboard apparently crapped itself because it could not take the volume of calls.
But it's still crash dieting. And crash diets don't work. Again, if I didn't have to do this to avoid potential surgical complications I sure as hell would not try losing weight this way. It's painful and its depressing.
The shiny happy overweight girl riding the bike on the front of the Optifast literature is a lie. In reality she'd probably be sitting sadly on the couch thinking about what food she would eat if she could.
Just two days to go.
... yay ...
