Be kind and encouraging. Considering the dieter is only allowed to eat or drink Optifast products during the first phase, this may get expensive fast. Chickpea and oat contribute to the fiber content along with a blend of complex carbohydrates. Although the Optifast line began with pre-made drinks, it has grown to include soup mixes and nutrition bars. Maltodextrin may lead to spikes in blood sugar.
I find that I want to eat only very small portions. The only thing that has been difficult is getting used to my new appetite. I've been throwing out a lot of my food because I physically feel like I cannot eat that much, and if I do eat too much then I don't feel so good. However, I'm learning to keep all my meals small and frequent (just like I should have been doing all along!).
