Please take a look at the various recipe threads, especially the one with vegetable recipes. And also view the great helps and tips for week one in this thread:

Personally, I would put aside the diet soda, in favor of Smartwater, Powerade Zero, and regular water. Soda contains caffeine and sodium. Your call on that one, but I completely quit drinking soda and still do not drink it anymore.

I am never hungry on this diet because I drink all my water, Powerade zero, coffee and an occasional diet soda-some day I may float away:)
