    At 16 months, I enjoy the savory smells, but no longer really care about tasting it -- it's kind of become its own experience :)

    Re: Liquid diet help

    There is no shortcut with VGS -- at least not one that results in weight loss, restored health and feeling good. You need to just decide you have NO choice to make. You're doing it.
