2. Don't laugh. No really. You don't realize how many muscles laughing uses until you can't use them.
3. Embrace your liquid-only diet by repeating "This will jump start my bikini body. This will jump start my bikini body."
4. Delight in being returned to childhood for a few days by eating only spaghettios, apple sauce and tapioca pudding packs.
5. Buy protein shakes with built-in compliments.
6. Take advantage of your opportunity to send your loved ones really dramatic text messages.
