I guess what I don't get about this is that the diet requires you to eat things that aren't sugary and bad for you, so you buy all the fruit and vegetables for it instead of the unhealthy stuff. Well, can't you just not buy the unhealthy stuff? I don't get why it has to be some specific diet that requires you to purchase more healthy foods instead of simply purchasing more healthy foods?

Instead this Monday I went to the store and bought a ton of vegetables to make myself and they sit in my refrigerator untouched.

So it's really mental more than anything else. Anyway, it's three days. I'm also going to bookstore that has meals for one so I can start planning on cooking quick meals just for myself. I think that's also part of my problem. I have always enjoyed cooking for people who enjoy eating. Usually my daughter would have one or two friends over at least a few times a week for dinner. For some reason simply cooking for me seems a chore... especially when I all my cookbooks serve 6 to 8 people.

Again, it's mental. Could I just alter the ingredients to make it a one-serving thing? Yes. But I know me and I know I won't. So I'll buy a cookbook for one person.

Well, I hope it works out for you. If you do make juice from fruit and vegetables, you want to drink then right away if you want to get the most nutrients out of them, by the way. So, I wouldn't make a batch to drink for later, unless you're more interested in just the diet aspect than getting certain nutrients.
