    I hate dieting and have never been able to stick to a diet for m

    I hate dieting and have never been able to stick to a diet for more than a few days. I always get overwhelmed and frustrated, giving up and swearing I'll never do it again. Also, I'm starving! So The I Diet is a great starting point if you are trying to lose weight and trying to understand the science behind it all. Then, when you are ready to jump start your weight loss, do what I did. After decades of yo-yo dieting and failure, I lost 11 pounds using The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution. The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution is probably the best way that I have ever seen to lose weight. I will not lie, I have been so happy with the results that I have been trying to read everything that I can to keep this weight off. My whole family noticed over the summer. You just don’t know how good this new me feels. So when you are ready, start with The I diet and finish with The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution and watch for the results.
