People tend to love it or hate it. I love it, my wife hates it. The problem is that at dinner, I would be eating 3,000 plus calories (I work in a feed store and lift weights, to boot!), so I have to come up with a strategy to do the WD and not make my lovely wife grumpy. I think this can be done. Having done this diet in the past, I got hooked on the energy and clear-headedness the diet gave me. Oh, it didn't seem to have a bad effect on my work capacity, really, but it takes a while to adjust to. The crockpot will become a great friend of anyone on this diet!
For anyone having this 'inequality' problem:
What I do is eat the normal family dinner without the potatoes, rice or pasta. That is no problem since we always have 2 sorts (also double amount) of vegetables/legumes/salad/beans.
When I am not fully satisfied I complete my meal after dinner with some 60g of mixed nuts.
Occasionally, and to build the habit in the beginning, reward yourself with icecream, cake or whatever 'sin' lurks in your cravings. This will reinforce you new habits enourmously. And you will not need to do this every day, just the feeling that you could and are allowed to (from yourself!) is a luxury feeling.
Late at night I take a second meal with the leftover vegetables etc. or canned beans, peas etc. Sometimes cheese, meat or whatever there is. I spice it up with herbs, pepper, mustard, add some calories by adding one or two spoons of mayonaise (good also for muscle growth).
This last meal will take you through the next day. When having eaten not enough at this time, don't bother about eating some healthy food/snacks during the daytime next day.
The feeling of not being deprived of food, but in contrary the eating to satisfaction is an great asset of this WOL.
