    Alcohol. Love it, all of it in all kinds. But gave it up. So I guess I can do without it. Feel much better without it. I'll have some if I want to. That's the secret...I think.

    I think I'm coming to the realization that there isn't anything I couldn't give up if necessary....lol. I used to think I could never give up pasta or bread and wow was I wrong about that....

    That being said I still love my coffee and would be real sad to give it up as well.

    And cheese....

    If I had to pick one thing it's Diet Coke. I know it's not a food, but I love it. I try not to drink more than one of those 16.9 oz bottles a day, though.

    I'm so pleased I don't have to give up Cheese. I lost the original 80 lbs on weight watchers and learned a lot of good things from that plan but man oh man...good cheese was so "expensive" in terms of points. Now....meh. I do what I want :wink:

    Cheese

    According to Leviticus, eating, drinking, and even rubbing cheese on your privates or neighbor's spouse, are not listed as sins.

    Will this be a suitable excuse to the police when they are called after I break in to rub cheese all over the neighbours? >:)

    I would suggest consulting legal counsel.

    Cream in my multiple cups of coffee. I recently read that if you have a food you are unwilling to give up, you should give that up. Part if me agrees...i have no carbs left for greens or other healthy foods...and I suspect the dairy may contribulte to the gross keto breath.
    Have been toying with the idea of trying it out for a week or even a day...so far havent done it.
    Coffee with cream is my hands down fave food. I'm almost out of cream now..so, maybe i should just give it a whirl and see if it helps with the above mentioned things as well as with a boost in weight loss...

    Well if it is stinky cheese, then I can think of a few I would like to rub it all over, but if it is cheddar, mozzarella etc then I totally agree. Just shove it in and enjoy every mouth full.

    What I have found is that there is not one food that cannot be replicated (or come very close) to be LCHF. I love pizza and I saw a recipe for making a pizza in a pan, where the cheese becomes the crust! I tried the cauliflower pizza (no go for me). Thats what I really like about this new WOE (see I am getting used to the acronyms) its a pretty cool journey / experimenting with the foods I loved with carbs, now substituting for healthier alternatives. PS: there is no substitute for coffee and I have been living on it more than ever on the LCHF, so forget everything I said.

    Are you suggesting I'd have to give something up permanently and forever?? :disappointed: In the short term there's not much I couldn't live without, but I'd be hard pushed to permanently give up all forms of dairy, I did six months vegetarian once, much of it raw and vegan, but not 100% and cheese was the one thing that kept slipping back in. Eating healthy isn't easy for me, I'm a food addict and a stress eater, but I don't feel particularly deprived eating a low carb high fat diet. Avoiding specific foods isn't hard for me, avoiding binge eating and stress eating in general is what I struggle with on a long term basis.
