With most diets this is exactly what you get...hunger and cravings. It's a game where you win your battle with weight, but lose your will to live. After months of constant hunger and cravings, you are allowed to add more to your diet (or you decide to go off it) and slowly you go back to your old ways and gain weight all over again. You go back on the diet and so the game starts all over again. It's a money making scam if you ask me.
