with No exercise, and a cheat day..... There's your answer. If she has a long bad history with sugar, it will no doubt take her some time to detox all that junk out of her system. in the first weeks especially, is when I think compliance is most important, because alot of re-programming is going on. She has to drop the sugar binge day..... save that for a maintenence level. and get her out for a romantic stroll in the evening after a great dinner..... walk, talk, walk, talk...... etc.
