The best way I have found to do the VLCD is to PLAN AHEAD! This is an important practice for anyone who has bondage to food issues in all the phases. At a minimum, one will do well to plan the day before what your menus will include. Best would be to plan your week in advance. Here is the way I recommend that you calculate your calories for each day's menu: It is helpful to start by inputting your protein. Now you can add in your 2 small fruits for the day, one for each meal. Next, you will want to add in the allowed vegetables. I find it nutritionally as well as psychologically fulfilling to include 1/2 lb of green, leafy vegetables daily. The easiest way to do this is in a SheepRAW Smoothie. Now, you can figure out how many calories are left over for your second veggie. Go ahead and take it up to at least 475 calories. Don't get overzealous and think that choosing a lot less calories is going to make this work better! Been there, done that, doesn't work! Also, please note that if you are using spices, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, etc. for recipes, these items DO contain calories and must be added in as well!
