"Boring" really has nothing to do with it.
I think one of the diet industry's biggest sins is when they try to promote a certain diet as "easy" or fun.
Truth here, it's hard and it sucks but it's worth it. Anyone who tells you otherwise is trying to sell you something.
Diet for 6 weeks on and at least 2 weeks off to avoid metabolic slowdown.
Either you have a purpose behind your expression... or you don't.
