Have you lost weight by ditching certain foods?

Hello there, I hope you have a wonderful day. I have hypothyroidism and I have stopped eating bread since it makes me sluggish and I feel like passing out after indulging in carbohydrates. So have you cut out any foods from your diet and started noticing real results?

    Wine. I tend to eat all the yummy snacks when I drink.

    I stopped drinking soda regardless if it's diet or not, and vending machine treats.

    Other than most fries from fast food places, no. But it only works if cutting these foods out puts you in a calorie deficit.

    I dropped added sugar and grains, as well as most fruits. Its limiting but I feel much better doing it so I'll continue.

    I stopped drinking regular soda and switched to 0 calorie soda because I need the increased caffeine in Pepsi max and have noticed my blood sugar is better.

    I've tried it, and all that happens for me is I crave that food and feel like a failure if I eat it. I just try to eat as healthy as possible, living in the real world, and keep as close to my calorie limit for the day as possible.

    My one exception for food I never eat is pizza. Pizza kills me every time. It makes me feel so sick and bloated and nauseated and gross. I have stopped eating pizza.

    I have inadvertently because I can't eat as much of certain things and still feel like I'm healthy and within my calorie goal, and I don't want a ton of it sitting around my house (I.e. Pizza, Chinese food, etc)

    Nope. Eating all the foods, just less of them keeps me committed.

    I don't know whether to feel bad for you, or to feel jealous.

    Not eliminating anything. However I have made it a policy now to not buy the family size bag of potato chips (kcmasterpeice bbq) but instead only the tiny single serve size. I can't and should not fit a whole family size bag in and i used to eat a whole bag regularly which is part of why I am fat. I will eat a bag full regardless if 1oz or 30oz. I can and do occasionally allow myself the 1oz bag. I am losing weight about 1.4 lbs a week.

    I find that having accountability partners has changed somewhat of what I eat. Some days I go over and they don't create a fuss then. However one day I posted that I was gonna get some pizza. Man all of my friends were on me like white on rice!

    I also find that logging everything helps me make better choices about what I eat i.e. more green rabbit food, fruits, fish, chicken (not fried), and whole grains.

    However the important thing is having people who can hold you accountable, yet encourage you too.

    I excluded nothing, but I did make more calorie conscious choices from the foods I enjoy and reduced overall quantity of food just for a while.

    I prefer the approach of starting from what I should include rather than what to exclude.

    Nothing, just eat less of it than I used to (95% of the time)

    I lost about 10 pounds when I stopped drinking alcohol. Alcohol adds calories, and it made me want to eat more too. Beer & pizza go great together!
