Today I had to go to Virginia for work.
I did not plan very well and so by lunch time, I was exhausted, dehydrated, and starving.
What I noticed was that when I am in that condition, I want to eat every carb in the book.
But, of course, I resisted and my saving grace was that they brought my salad before the carb-filled appetizer my friend had ordered or else I may have caved.
As soon as I ate the salad, I felt better. My resolve was back and I had no desire to eat any of the "cheat" foods.
Lesson: Don't let yourself get hungry. There is no reason to on this diet. Bring pepperoni, bring cheese, bring boiled eggs, bring anything you have to. But keep yourself hydrated and keep yourself full.
