Was I Ever Hungry?
The Turbo 13 week, I got hungry. I wasn’t eating all of the vegetables they suggest though.
Besides that week, I wasn’t hungry on the rest of the program. You could always skip the Turbo 13 plan or add in a snack if you wanted. I wouldn’t let that one week turn you off from the whole system.
