Dinner with extended family *can* be successful and *doesn’t* have to be full of anxiety as kweber05  found out – grilled chicken breast with steamed veggies and a hard boiled egg.

Week 1 was a success all around – everyone feels lighter and on the right track nutrition-wise, and aside from some crazy food dreams, general anxieties about mindless eating, and cigarette cravings, we are all faring well and on track for Week 2.
