So, here in the UK it's "Sober for October" so I am going to try a little experiment with my diet and weight management....

My only vice now it alcohol (wine and gin - mmmmm gin). So I am going to weigh myself tonight and log my weight, I am then going to go this month without alcohol (and while I am at it, I am going to seriously reduce the amount of dairy I take on - gone is white coffe, "normal" tea and in come black coffee in the morning and green tea, I don't eat much yoghurt or cheese anyway).

I will then log my weight at the end of the month and see what a difference this has made.

Nah, I did my own research, though I would try a more oriental diet (well sort of - cutting out dairy and adding more veg, not eating man made starchy foods such as pasta etc)

I greatly reduced my carb intake. If what you mentioned in the original post have been part of your regular diet, you might want to consider having a couple cheat-days during the month. Have a couple beers on a Friday or Saturday night. Maybe weekend coffee can have cream?

If you flat-out remove all that from your regular diet, you'll likely break down and binge.

Just my two-cents!

Having a better awareness of foods consumed is always worthwhile; taking it to the next level to improve upon, that could become a positive way of promoting a healthy lifestyle.

HAPPY DIETING Kyonovice

That's been my plan too, for the last 15 years.......
I'm sure you'll do better than I did!
