hmm, I know how feels to be restricted by following a diet. It does become easier to stay in, and think about nothing but food. What hobbies do you have? Do you like crafts? I find sewing or drawing keeps my hands busy and stops my thinking about food.

Also look into snacks you can take with you when you go out, and eat on the go. Lots of cafes will alter meals to suit your needs too.

Wow, that sure is alot of protein for one day! Even friends that are bodybuilders don’t eat that much protein. What they do is take their meals with them wherever they go; I know it sounds odd but it helps them stay on track.

Ugh that sounds like a tedious diet.

What about bowling? Or if you go to the movies bring your own snack, like carrots in a baggie maybe. How about hiking? Go see a museum. Take a class (bonsai care popped into my head for some reason, lol).

Yikes that does sound like a tough diet to follow.  I do know what you mean about it restricting your social life.  What I’ve done in the past is just eat before I go out and maybe just have 1 drink while I’m out with friends.  Or go on the restaurant website and find something I can fit into the diet.  Or like PPs said, arrange to meet friends somewhere else!  Have people over for a girls night/poker night/movie night and you supply (and control) the snacks!

Well whatever works for you of course. I recently lost 60 lbs. and people keep asking me what diet or pills I took and I just tell them “eat less, exercise more”. There is no way I could survive on a diet like the one you described.

That being said – check out museums, check out the living section of the paper for events that do not center around food, go hiking, write a letter to a friend, read a book, or volunteer at an animal shelter. SEX is a great tension reliever as well! LOL

I say tell your friends about your diet – I have two good friends (they’re dating) who were on a huge detox diet. Since they told their friends (more as a heads up as to why they may not be at food get togethers), we found other ways to hang out. Its also been handy riding on that as I have some health issues right now and eating… well, it’s not so fun. I’ve had friends come over and drink tea, plus play games. Apples to Apples is one of my fave games of all time.
