Wow. I really appreciate the genuine concern being shown for my well-being. Thank you. My husband is monitoring me for mood, coordination, thought process, anything that would seem wrong with me. If I experience anything like that I will definitely stop the diet. I like myself!

The typical experience when starvation dieting is a bit of weight loss, then your body adjusts and you plateau. Your assumption that you can go back to "normal" levels of eating after your body has adjusted to starvation rations may be incorrect. In 95% of cases, after starvation dieting is stopped, the body actually regains weight because it has "learned" to save every calorie.

I'm hoping you're in that 5% who can make it... good luck.

Ok, I have stopped the diet. I suddenly was no longer hungry, at all. Didn't even want to consume all 800 calories. I took this as a sign that nothing good was happening to my body, but something bad.

That's the best news I've heard all day. I was watching this thread and worried about what was going on here. Please be gentle with yourself and do take care of yourself and your food needs.

I thought I ought to check in with you on how I am doing.

My morning blood sugar is down by 20 to 35 points, about 113. I am eating more carbs, (probably more than I ought) and less protein. My PP blood sugars are under 120 at 1 hour, and under 100 in 2 hours. I still use the nutrition drinks as a meal replacement 3 or 4 times a week. I have gained back about 2 pounds of what I lost on the diet, but that does not concern me. I lost a noticeable amount of belly fat even when my weight was not dropping, and that is not coming back as of now.
