High fiber & protein: Fill up on plenty of vegetables, and get plenty of protein in your diet. Good snacks may include string cheese, non-fat frozen yogurt, edemame, and low-sodium vegetable soups. Don't forget to drink lots of water, and get your exercise. A sugar-free popsicle may keep you from falling off the wagon! good luck. It's worth the effort. Lgromkomd.

You could make : Yourself quite ill. Your body would go into starvation mode, your metabolic rate would drop and ultimately you would gain weight more easily.
