Luckily, it's not. My sister and her husband went on a certain diet that gave them both extremely fit bodies and re-adjusted their tastebuds. It's the diet I'm on now, it's a rather drastic one, but I was completely determined to seize the challenge if it meant feeling good about my appearance. One part of it involved drinking health shakes three times a day--they aren't great-tasting, but easily consumable. The other part is where it gets difficult, and that's cutting out all the high-carb and sugar contents I had in my previous diet altogether. I'd have healthy snacks in between, drink lots of water, and a dinner consisting of high protein and vegetables.
My sister told me the first three days were the hardest, and I can attest to it being true. I've been experiencing extreme hunger, craving my old foods like I never had before, and just the sight of foods I enjoy but couldn't have when going into the market was kind of torture to say the least. There's also a great sense of sadness in having to say goodbye to your comfort foods.
Regardless, I've kept on trucking along. It hasn't been easy, but I remain determined as ever to see it through, and my family's been a great source of support. I hope to post some incredible "before" and "after" pictures in the future.
